  2. Add a setting to eliminate events

    There is a setting to limit the number of events to On route only, 5 miles, 10 miles, etc, but there is no way to completely eliminate event pop ups. This is very annoying as I use my phone to listen to music and every time I get a n event pop up, the music stops for a few seconds. Please create and option to have no event pop ups.

    Thank you.

  3. My 1997 Saab 9000 had a really helpful option. It was a speed alarm.

    You can set it to a speed, when you accelerate beyond that speed, it beeped until you slowed down below the set speed. Very helpful for long roads with little traffic.

  6. More privacy required

    I know about the anonymous option, but this is not my point.
    I would like to have the feauture to everyone to be only your nickname from Waze client, at maximum, to be shown. So, if you're logged in to Facebook, as I am, it won't appear your picture from Facebook or your name either; instead I would recommend to shown only the Waze emotion and the Waze nickname. To avoid any persuit, identity anything else that makes you easy to be track.
    So, only your friends will see your picture on the map and your name.

    It's not just…

  8. "more time"

    I need more time to confirm or "not there" hazards, police, etc. Why not 30 sec? There have been a few times when I pressed "not there" only to find that the hazard was just a little further down the road.

  10. Add direction to Gas station names

    When updating prices for Gas statitions if there are two either side of the road you can't tell which is which. Sometimes they have differnet prices (not often I grant you) and its not possible to know which is which. If you added Northbound, Eastbound etc. would make it clearer.

  12. Cyclists hazard button

    In urban environments with narrow roads, cyclists can sometimes take up much of an existing lane. For their safety, and so motorists can take evasive action, a dedicated hazard button should be implemented.

  13. Badge

    Some apps as Foursquare or Ski+ are based on many badges. I'd love some badges in Waze (for instance : "drive more than 500km in one day" ; "update more than 5 gas station in one week" ; "resolve 10 maps problems"...).

  15. Video out

    Most car audio systems have a video-capable screen. Waze could implement a video out feature using the same video-out mecanism used on apps like youtube or similar.

    That could be useful for via video out or data cable (like video app on iphone)

  16. Convert 2nd level hazard selections to buttons

    The report screen UI utilizes easy to use buttons at the first and second levels. For those that require more detail, like weather and other road hazards, the options are presented as stacked lines of text. These should be converted to buttons as well so they are easier to select and are consistent with the rest of the UI.

  17. Include on-route traffic flow and incidents to "Your trip" screen and traffic delay to ETA.

    Upon click on the ETA box on the bottom a "Your trip" screen pops up and shows route details. Please include traffic flow and incidents that lay on the route ahead (just like one can see it when the 3 alternative routes are presented. Also it would be great to show the traffic delay on the current route next to the ETA on the main map.

  18. Be able to put the speed at the speed trap that exist or a new one. Like price at gas station.

    We should be able to configure the speed of that speed trap, editing or during the creation and it should appears at the pop up of the speed trap.

  20. Update this with a real GPS view map!

    Love this app but can't fully replace my gps navigator with it just yet. I do a lot of deliveries and when driving without navigation, a real GPS device will say on the top of the screen upcoming street also if u are somewhere and don't know where u touch your vehicle it shows u the closest address by u. This is a safety feature... Please add! This app only gives u the hundred block
