  1. 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.

  2. Altitude

    Add an option to show altitude on screen (displayed like current speed would be), just like some GPS units allow. Great for mountain driving.

  3. 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.

  4. Use the telephone acceletor to get data about road quality

    Use the telephone acceletor to get data about the general quality of the road. I live near roads that your phone would be shaking constantly. The accelerometer can be useful to give an overall quality rating for each segment.

    Then waze could have an option prefer to choose good roads when routing.

  5. 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!"

  6. GPS coordinates

    It would be great to have a GPS dashboard panel, displaying in the same screen:
    - Longitude, Latitude & Elevation
    - Velocity
    - GPS status (fixed, not fixed, ...)
    - Signal's strength
    - Compass

    Something like this picture: http://i49.tinypic.com/15chxqc.png

  7. It would be great if School Zones were added.

    I gave votes to the others. I do understand there are time management issues. This would be a huge plus.

  8. Distance units

    The Waze client appears to use three types of unit for distance reporting, miles, decimal fractions of miles and feet.

    In the UK we generally use two units for road distance, miles and yards. We do not measure road distance in feet, I measure the size of my bedroom in feet but not the length of my road.

    Also "point one miles" doesn't mean a lot to me or many other people I'd imagine, not to mention that it is shockingly poor grammar.

    Please can we have a UK units option, that supports miles, half a mile and yards. Thank…

  9. דיווח שריפות

    הוספת פיצ'ר לדיווח על שריפות (בשמורות טבע למשל, עבור מטיילים) . הפיצ' ר יעביר את הדיווח למכבי האש. רלוונטי לדיווח מהיר על מקרי הצתה, בלוני תבערה וכדומה. צמצום זמן התגובה של מכבי האש הוא בעל ערך עצום לצמצום נזקי השריפה.

    Adding a feature for reporting incidents of arson in nature reserves. The feature will notify the firefighters and share the direct location.

    "Learn mode" , where you can teach Waze the best route to follow ; sometimes the fast or short route is not possible, or you know a better route for your favorite location.

  13. PLEASE VOTE IF YOU WANT ELECTRIC CHARGING STATIONS AS A FEATURE

    I am taking a survey in order to see how many people feel they would benefit from adding a feature that locates electric charging stations, similar to the one already in place for gas stations. PLEASE VOTE ON THIS SUGGESTION IF YOU FEEL THIS WOULD BENEFIT YOU OR EVEN IF YOU JUST SEE THE MERIT IN THIS FEATURE.

  14. Waze should allow users to add friends through their emails or phone number. Not everyone has Facebook.

    Waze should allow users to add friends through their emails or phone number as oppose to just Facebook. I've a lot of friends who have Waze but not Facebook and we can't add each other which is a shame.

  15. Display the destination address

    Show me the final destination address, at least when I get close to it. Just having the voice say "you've arrived" isn't precise enough when I could be 100 or more feet away. I drive for Uber and have to close the WAZE app to see what address I'm looking for.

  17. PTT Comunication

    It would be great to add PTT type communication to go on the road and communicate if a big family goes in different vehicles. This work has been done by the Zello App for a long time, but it would not be bad to add that function to Waze natively.

  19. Show Dirty roads with the same width as Street but with an irregular border

    A lot of users are complaining about Dirty Roads visibility in small screens, this would fix it.

  20. EV mode

    I am driving an electric vehicle and have a few ideas:
    1. route for least hills
    2. fleet learn from other EVs to improve range
    3. Tesla already uses Google Maps -- integrate with their EV (API?) to get range and utilization (efficiency) data to improve commutes and feedback on battery state
    4. Allow users to manually set up their EV in the app and prompt for "did you get a full charge overnight" or "please update actual battery % or rated range estimate, currently 288 miles, actual?"
    5. Learn "destination charging" and "destination parking" for manual EV setup behavior…
