  1. Return the displaying of FB friends on a map in app.

    Most users are interested in where their friends are, not unknown people. Need to make FB friends be visible on the map all the time, not just when they are within 1 km. There is an invisible button for Confidentiality to compliance in the application.

  2. hide sms "features" in UI

    for those who are not foolishly paying to send text communcations please add option to hide such from the UI. Optionally replace with Jabber (XMPP).

    There is no sane reason to use OLD sms on a smartphone! Stop burning money.

  3. maximum one report per X miles

    Hi there,

    Waze is awesome and everyone is using it. Some like me to navigate from Northern Denmark all the way to Romania on holiday others just to find out about speed traps.

    In Romania, Waze caught a lot of media attention so we have a lot of new users, who are obsessed with the points. The new users part is good. We get more reports, more places, we improve on the map problems and we know exactly where the police is :)))

    But then due to the point system, the new users instead of thanking for a reported police…

  5. Show favorites on map

    In other gps devices, your favorites show up on the map. For example if you have a friends house saved and you drive by you'll be able to see it on the map. So I think it would be nice to have your favorites show on the map all the time or at least have an option to turn on a feature like this.

  6. Hitch hike - (Carona)

    Add the option to switch from “driver” to “hitchhiker” in the app. As a hitchhiker, you inform to Waze where you want to go. When a driver do the same, it will show on the map all the hitchhikers that could be benefited by his route. It’s now up to the driver if he want to pick them up.
    It could be possible to change the privacy preferences for:
    - showing your routes for all the hitchhikers;
    - show only for hitchhikers that are in a specific group;
    - show only to your Facebook friends;
    - or hide for everyone…

  7. Ford Sync integration

    Later this year, Ford will release the APIs for integrating apps with vehicles that have Sync. Waze could use the vehicle's on-board GPS, speedometer, and other data instead of running the phone's GPS.

  10. Change the notification sound

    Hi. I'm finding it hard to find where I can change the default notification sound on my android. It would be nice if you could customise it with ie a revving engine

  11. Allow Offline features

    Waze needs to be allowed offline, this means it should keep counting your miles, calculate navigation options, and report map issue reports... these should be stored in the phone and uploaded once online again!

  12. icon size

    I'd like an option for larger map icon sizes. The current icons are too small for me to make out at a glance.

  14. Lane selection in reporting

    Ability to choose a single or multiple lanes (e.g. 1st, 2nd, left/right/u turn lane, 2 of them, all and etc.) when reporting an event - stopped vehicle, accident, object on road, traffic, closure.
    It would be very useful and helpful feature letting warned drivers to prepare and choose a clear lane in advance.

  15. Upside-down interface

    Without a car dock, the iPhone rides upside-down in my cupholder since the car charger plugs in the bottom of the phone. It would be awesome if Waze supported 180-degree rotation in addition to both landscape modes.

  18. Mr. T's Voice

    Mr. T's voice would be truly amazing and esp popular. My bet is you would get addl users just for going there.

    "Turn Now, Sucka!" "Rerouting, I pitty you fool"

    and an amazing easter egg for those going to the airport "I ain't gettin' on no plane!"

  19. Increase the number of polygons on the map

    In Live-map the map is well drawed & high level detailed. But when i see same region in Waze-client its not looks so fine, because at least half of polygons was optimized. Its makes Waze-client looks badly & not so attractive.

  20. Add "Heavy Rain" and "Snow" as weather hazards. I have recently been driving through extremely heavy rain storms

    Add "Heavy Rain" and "Snow" as weather hazards. I have recently been driving through extremely heavy rain storms and I would like to share that as a weather hazard. Snow and slush would be good additions as well.
