  2. road cutted

    You could add a new feature to allow drivers to cut a road instantly if they realize it's cutted because of works or a delivery van is stopped in the midle of the road...

  3. Monitize via radio

    Waze should look to monetize by partnering with radio stations for up to date traffic reports, get someone to sponsor the report (like they do with today’s helicopter based reports) and split the fee. Would be more profitable for both and save on the carbon footprint of flying multiple helicopters over every city.

  5. Navigation: Add a Stop Transition to 2nd Leg of 2 Destination Route

    While in Navigation mode when you have two destinations using the Add a Stop feature - when Waze determines that you have arrived at your destination, the app displays a bubble dialog basically with the [b]next[/b] destination address and I believe the countdown timer. Please have it display the address that you just arrived at, with a button that says Next Stop or similar and no countdown timer.

    This is because for example you arrive at a condo or townhouse complex, or an office-style strip mall where each business entrance is not well marked with big signs like a retail…

  6. 1. Add possibility to plan a route in advance 2. Add "Instruction on demand" 3. Advance instructions

    1. Add possibility to plan a route in advance on the map, selecting start and destination points.
    2. Add "Instruction on demand" feature.
    3. Instructions to turn etc. are usually too late. They should be advanced by 20--30 meters so as to give the driver enough time to execute them.

  7. Hide work line on favorites list

    I work from home, so I have an empty "work" slot taking up space in my favorites. It does no good, so it's just a wasted spot that could be better used with a different favorite.

  8. Automatic check-in with Foursquare

    An automatic check-in with Foursquare (previously set where you want to be checked), while passing through a street.
    A manual check is already. There are apps that allow an automatic check. So this must indeed also work with Waze.

    It is definitely safer than driving to find a check and all the time on the smartphone to play around;)

  9. Remember the last selection made in regards to sharing with a group or not

    When I chose to share my report with a group or not default to that same option for my next report until I change it. Do not always default on sharing with the first group I am a member of.

  10. Second warning for upcoming hazard

    In addition to the 2000ft warning of a hazard, add a 500ft chime. I forget to confirm hazard is still there

  11. crash recovery

    Better crash recovery, if im recording a route and the client crashes for any reason it would be good if when it was restarted it continued from where it left off. Currently it forgets the route.

  12. -- Points System limited to regional extension--

    -- Points System limited to regional extension-- It is not fair to give the same amount of points to people living in Russia and, for example, Dominican Republic. We all know that you get the most of points from map editing, and people living in bigger countries get a regional advantage. I have been to Dominican Republic and there are not enough things to edit, but if you go to Russia... hurrah!. same thing when you think of China and Japan. I think you get the idea, there should be a calculation factor based on how extensive a country is.

  14. שדרוג השוואת מסלולים

    מציע להכניס באפשרויות השוואת המסלולים את כל המסלולים הרלוונטיים בלי קשר לאפשרות נסיעה עם/בלי כבישי אגרה. הדבר נחוץ מאוד לחישוב הכדאיות לשימוש בכבישי אגרה. אשמח לקבל תגובה

  15. 'blind' or pre-announce mode.

    I use waze on a Motorcycle, the phone is in my pocket the screen is off. It would be nice if I could hear (Bluetooth helmet) what my next turn will be after I make a turn so that I know about how long until the next turn.

  16. Preparing trip with altitude and car profile : choosing less fuel consupion

    In order to save fuel and money, what do you think to have a preview of the profile ?
    Choising a flat road instead a road with up's and down's, your drive is safe for consumption.
    If we could add the car profile, with regular consumption in Urban, Highway & combined, we can see the best choice for saving money.

    Last topic, Waze could an EPEAT software or other certified software.

  17. Make map icons easier to identify!

    When looking at the waze map, it is difficult to tell what direction the traffic/police/accident icons are positioned for. There should be something included on the icon that indicates if the report is for Eastbound/Westbound traffic; maybe just a "W" or "E" included in the icon? Maybe add an arrow pointing in the direction of traffic flow that the report is effecting?

  18. New types of reports

    Besides being able to point report something (not just being able to report on current location... after all you are in a car moving). Add the option of "closed road". aka, you can't go through here, seek alternatives.

  19. Add the ability to add tags/user mentions to all tweets

    Waze has Twitter integration but there is no ability to customise the tweets. Add the ability to append text to all tweets such as hashtags or mentions of users you want to notify. This would be pre set in settings to avoid having to do it at drive time.

  20. Optional speed based auto zoom for normal (non-routing) use.

    I just thought it would be nice for it to zoom in on cities, towns and then zoom out on highways. It might be able to save data usage for normal use.
