  2. Show "merge" when road name changes

    Some paths go on roads crossing city boundaries and the road changes or the road only goes in one direction but the road name changes, it would be nice to see an arrow with name change.

    Some paths go through a ramp or lane merge that do not show because it is the only path possible, but the name of the road changes, or the direction (turning right since it is the only possible route) which is misleading when you know you have to turn right but Waze says the next turn is left.

  6. Add option to enable and disable Waze based on Bluetooth and charging status

    Add the ability to enable or disable Waze based on various factors, such as bluetooth being enabled, name of paired device currently connected, or if the phone is currently connected to a power source. I love the app but I often forget to turn it off or on. As a result, I either burn battery by gps staying on if I forget to turn it Waze off, or I don't contribute to the community if I forget to turn Waze on. This could also be accomplished externally through integration with Tasker, as suggested by these ideas :

  8. Need way to edit one lane bridge, due to long term construction, causes two way traffic to wait, traffic lights on ramps and road

    Need way to edit/show one lane bridge, especially due to long term construction. Current situation causes two way traffic to wait while traffic lights on ramps and road cycle to allow only one ramp or roadway lane to proceed at a time from any direction.

    No existing Waze edit function to mark local bridge that is under repairs and causing traffic delays. How can we show detour? All traffic is now funneled through one lane on bridge one traffic direction/lane at a time. No edit function to indicate this to warn drivers to avoid bridge, at least not for level…

  10. Request cancelled webpage with more info

    On follow my drive, if you type in the URL incorrectly, or if the other person turned off waze, you get a "Request Cancelled" message on the web.

    I have an IT background, so I understand the meaning behind "Request cancelled". But most people I know have absolutely no idea what that means.

    The page should say a bit more, in layman's terms. Kind of like a 404 page. For example:

    Sorry, this user's drive is not currently viewable. This could be because of several reasons:


    1. Check your URL. Maybe you mistyped it?


    2. The user is not connected to Waze…

  11. Utilise Waze's live traffic data to manage traffic flow for an entire city

    Utilise Waze's live traffic data to manage traffic flow for an entire city by interfacing with traffic control systems, like lights and lanes, and charge local governments for the increased productivity.

  13. Always have an avoid highways route option to choose from

    The avoid highway option is buried in the settings. Either make it easier to toggle or when you selecting alternate routes always have an option to compare taking the back roads vs the highway.

  14. Mark dead-man curves & other dangerous intersections?

    I think it might be good to have a way to mark dangerous curves or intersections. I live on a "dead-man's curve" where we routinely have accidents when it is wet or icy or on holidays when people drink & drive. See this link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1074814064629.2013582.1054524325&type=1&l=eb11fcdbee

    I think people might be interested in knowing to be more alert in certain areas.

  16. Alerts based on time

    You should calculate how far or how long a Alert stays on the screen based on your speed because if something is a mile away and you're traveling miles an hour config one hour to get to especially if the traffic jam so if you could display something which is like a minute away they sometime be about the much better use of the screen space because something is staying there

  18. Add a virtual option

    Add a function to flip the UI image to allow the Waze view to be projected onto a windscreen acting as a heads up display and minimising risk when driving.

  19. Fleet management

    I work at a transit authority and we pay a lot of money for specialty hardware and software to track our fleet and transmit that information to the public. Possibly too late for my employer, but this is a market that could use a little disruption.
