  2. Make Waze AUTO sleep after 5 sec when Power is UNpluged while in the App

    Make a setting to make Waze AUTO sleep after 5 sec(or X sec, normal Waze countdown style Ok/Cancel box) when Power is UNpluged while in the app. This could be further improved with a "only within 5 mins of reaching a destination" setting.

    I think everyone that have Waze in the car has the phone on acc power and it would be so nice not to have to remember to Sleep Waze EVERY time I get to my destination.

  3. Fuel prices

    In Germany there are apps showing the actual fuel price.
    This information is delivered by the "Bundeskartellamt", nearly in realtime!
    Would it be possible to integrate this in WAZE ?
    Link to the Bundeskartellamt (in german):

  5. make a itinerary

    it would be great if you could setup a destination then add one or more "go through" waypoint.

  6. Calculate ETA based on own average speed

    ETA calculation seems to be based on traffic conditions and general average speed. ETA calculation seems to be inaccurate when driving below the average speed of the road-segment as it keeps increasing while driving with constant (low) speed.

    It would be great if ETA calculation would also be accurate for vehicles going below average speeds (e.g. trucks in europe etc.)

  7. Toll Road prompt

    After selecting the destination, Waze should prompt (as his famous brother Tom does) if toll roads should be allowed or not. In this way I could leave the option "Toll Roads" unchecked (it should be also removed) and before each journey I can choose depending on the case which route to follow...

    (please forgive language mistakes :D )

  8. Setting to turn off big purple road names

    Many times these "new" big purple road names block the map at intersections and make it difficult to know if you are turning onto the correct street.

  10. Free road - Green road

    Let us see not only the traffic jams. Let us see the free road. Free roads may be highlighted in green. This will help to better assess the condition of the roads.

  11. Disable auto route to suggested destination

    Often when I start my day, I'm not heading directly to the office. However, even after I enter a destination, I'll be prompted to navigate to "work". It will switch my destination without my input or any notification. Please turn off auto select for that navigation option. It's frustrating to think that Waze is taking me a traffic free route to find out it's navigating me to the wrong destination.

  12. Add obd2 info

    The obd2 to Bluetooth/wifi (elm 327) chips are cheap now. Would be so awesome to have mpg, boost pressure, and engine codes pop up inside of waze while driving.

  13. Stop warning of red light cameras

    Don't warn people of red light cameras, if you are dumb enough to drive through a red light you shouldn't be behind the wheel, giving them a warning of which ones will get them fines is just going to encourage morons to jump lights, very dangerous

  14. Using of G-Sensor

    If Waze will collect data from G Sensor, than it can automatically detect holes on the road, crashes and bad roads (4×4). Program may ask user what kind of hole it is - is it mistake, real hole, etc. If sensor detects constant shakes, than Waze can mark road as bad.

  15. Support ODB bluetooth dongles

    Allow the use of an ODB bluetooth dongle to get a number of improvements. These dongles are quite cheap and provide a wealth of extra data. Possible uses:

    [ Better dead reckoning using vehicle speed ]
    Using the actual vehicle speed combined with compass, accelerometer and map matching it should be possible to have accurate positioning in tunnels/urban canyons. TomTom does this and is able to do near-perfect positioning with only one GPS datapoint every 30 minutes.

  16. Failed reports

    Just imagine, you're driving and see something you want to inform other Wazers about (police trap, danger pothole or anything else). You're trying to report, type some text, send it, waiting, waiting, waiting and...it fails because of weak internet signal for example! What a frustration. "Uh-oh, try later!" Waze says...But it has no sense to try later as you've already drove away. So this important information is missed.
    I see two possible solutions here:
    1. Waze automatically tries to send the report later, every few minutes for example. After, let's say, 30 minutes it gives up as probably report is…

  18. Add integration with Geocaching.com

    Add the ability to automaticly find caches along a route. A feature to get the most caches AND Waze points in X number of miles driven would be a fun driving adventure.

  19. Color/Icon for landmarks

    It would be great to make different colors for different classes of landmark. Or to use scale-independent icons for (for example) gas stations.

    I cannot visually separate the supermarket and it's parking.

  20. Allow people to upload their own Waze profile picture (like their car) to get easily identified while driving...

    Hi people. Please forgive me for my average English, I'm a French Waze user...

    At the moment, the only way to display a picture when clicking on a Wazer is to link your Facebook account with your Waze client.

    I guess that a lot of people (like me) don't want to link their Facebook profile with the Waze client or they don't own one.

    My idea => Create a function on the Waze client to allow people to upload their own pictures.

    The goal => When a Wazer is in the vicinity of your location, you can click on it…
