  1. In honor of White Cane Safety Day, create a alert to drivers that notifies the driver a person using a white cane is ahead.

    A person with a visual impairment can log on to the app and WAZE will track the user as they walk.
    A driver using the app is notified when a person using a white cane is nearby.

  2. Alphabetize favorites

    It is so hard to find a favorite address that you have saved and would be great if they were in alphabetical order.

  3. Destination house number appear

    I have noticed many times that once you arrive to your street destination, it doesn't display the house number. This is really annoying, because I am a delivery driver. So once I hit the street, I have to grab my clipboard and look at the invoice to see the house number.

    I would imagine this is a easy fix and would help wazers out.

  5. Open up Waze to developers so we get third party plugins!

    Would be amazing if Waze allowed other developers to integrate their software AND hardware to use with Waze.

    Escort radar has their own app where if you hold a button on their radar detector, it'd report it on their cloud to other Escort users that a police is spotted.

    However, having to have two apps loaded at a time makes it very difficult to catch alerts from both apps at the same time. Opening up an SDK or API on Waze and allowing other companies and developers to integrate with Waze would allow Waze to dominate the industry.

    With this…

  6. Can waze add the option to users give some road alerts even when they are offline, and share this as soon the have signal back? Is often no

    Can waze add the option to users give some road alerts even when they are offline, and share this as soon the have signal back?

    Is often not sharing something in the road because I don't have 3G on my iPad at that moment. It should be possible to waze to keep the gps position and send it to the network when possible.

    Better could be to pass some police control and later set the correct position of the police alert.

  7. Display interstate/highway shields on client map.

    Right now the live maps can display highway shields with limited functionality. Adding this ability to the client maps (and expanding its scope, as right now it is only partially functional) would really make it easier to orient yourself when viewing the map.

    It would be nice if it was an option, as well... so you could disable it (like you can disable road goodies or other things) if you don't want to view them.

  9. Routing server timeout on long drives

    Since the app seems to consistently time out looking for long drives, I would recommend allowing more back end resources be used for drives over a certain mileage or time. This might require an upgrade based on the high number of users.

    Instead of having just one option, I would like to be able to choose between options since there are riskier routes for adding traffic.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one with this issue since I can have perfect service on an iPhone 6S and consistently have your servers time out.

  10. Arrival Time Should Reflect Destination Time Zone

    I live near the line between Eastern and Central time. I'd really like the estimated time of arrival to take time zones into account. Right now, my arrival time jumps up by an hour when I go from CDT to EDT and down an hour when I go the other way.

  12. Night Mode on all User Interface Elements

    When you're in Night Mode the map is, essentially, reversed in color; light things are dark, dark things are light. This is not true for any of the other user interface elements. Search, popups, reporting... all are very bright and very distracting. These interfaces should also be reversed, that is, dark grey backgrounds with light gray text.

  13. Store reports created offline for short period. I.E. Police reports and accidents, see comments

    I travel a lot in weak cell service areas on major interstates. I will see an accident or Police situation when I have GPS but not network it says sorry you can't report do it later. However it might be 5 or 10 miles down the road before I can then the event isn't in the right location. Suggest storing the location information along with the time so that when network returns it can be posted.

  14. Train crossings and train stoppage.

    Okay, I thought your app had everything until today. I ran into a slow train crossing. This is a difficult one because trains are there and then not there. I would like the ability to report trains and maybe speed/length in general terms. Then there are the trains that just stop on the crossing for an extended amount of time. Those would be very helpful to report. But, at least being able to report the train is crossing and direction of movement will help people I think.

  15. Location services

    Under Locations in our phones Waze has to be set to Always or Never while apps such as Maps and Lyft has the choices of Never or While Using. I think waze should also only use or location services while we are using the app. We don't need Waze to be tracking our location and wasting our battery every second of the day but only while we are using the app. This can obviously be made possible. If Maps and Lyft allows us this common sense option, then Waze should too.

  16. Dash cam

    Add dash cam features in background, auto record when car is moving, just enable feature and everything runs in background. Similar to app called witness. Record 10 segments, 6min each. Store date,time and GPS. Thought of this after learning that every car in Russia has a dash cam (all those meteor recordings).

  19. Replace "accident" with "crash"

    The term "accident" implies that no one was at fault. This is an inaccurate word choice, unless you know for a fact that no one involved did anything negligent to cause the crash. Widespread use of the term "accident" implies that road injuries and deaths are unavoidable, and creates an environment where they are simply accepted as a cost of doing business, when in fact, there is a lot that can be done to prevent such carnage. The terms "crash" and "collision" are much more accurate, as they do not imply fault or lack of fault.
