  1. Time of alert

    Would be a great help if waze would have the time the alert was first created show on the alert notification. This way you can decide how real-time this alert really is.

  2. New platform: Firefox OS

    http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2013/03/firefox-os-hands-on-mozillas-plan-to-build-on-top-of-the-web/3/

    Firefox OS (formerly boot-to-Gecko) is a soon-to-be-released platform for low-end smartphones for emerging markets. It combines a stripped-down Android base (called Gonk) with Gecko (the Firefox render engine) and Gaia, a client layer written entirely in HTML5. The Mozilla Foundation is making some apps available for the commercial release, including HERE Maps, created by Nokia, but HERE is not a very good mapping solution, it lacks turn-by-turn navigation and the interface is overall a mess. Waze could really benefit from being the first turn-by-turn navigation solution to come to a platform and, in its turn, Firefox OS really needs…

  3. Send the driver intermittent reminders to do Kegel exercises!

    Kegel exercises consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor. THese are easy to do, and benEficial in both men and women. Kegel exercises may be beneficial in treating urinary incontinence in both men and women and can increase sexual gratification in men and women.These exercises are easy to do...but just as easy to forget to do. I am suggesting that there be an option that WAZE reminds the driver to squeeze! I drive so much, and reminder to do my Kegels would come in handy!

  4. Add option to select car pool when navigating

    Lets popup "carpool?" button after choosing destination in carpool times. This will help to get corresponding exits and more precise calculations. Sometimes traffic stopped while carpool is open and I dont want to get average estimation and alternative route. Thanks!

  5. Turn reminder if been on road with no turns for a while

    I was on a road that had no turns for about 10 miles and then missed my turn as had not looked at Waze for some time. I have notifications off but thought would be a good idea to set Waze so that if you have not turned for some time could get it to make a noise or something to remind you of the turn up ahead.

  9. Incorporate Junction Views, ie, pictures of ramps and turns to allow quick identification of which ramp/junction to turn

    Have photos of junctions/ramps/turn offs pop out or have a split screen to view on coming turns at multiple junctions with arrows pointing to the route being navigated

  10. Allow for Swipe gesture to be customizable

    The current swipe gesture only allows for traffic to be reported. However, I run across 'car on the shoulder' more often than traffic. Allowing individuals to customize the swipe gesture would allow Waze to be tailored to the surroundings of the individual.

  11. Where will I be in xx minutes ? When will I be trough next xx miles ?

    When I travel for a long time, i wonder where I will be at 12:00 (time to eat). If I know that, I can search for a good restaurant around.
    When I reach a big traffic jam, I wonder when I get through it.
    In both cases, I think Waze could bring me the answer.

  12. Need to be able to query an alert if there's no data/network connection. It should acknowledge the alert, query, resend when data is present

    One feature you REALLY need is the ability to query and alert if there's no data/network connection. There's been times when I've tried to submit a report but couldn't because I didn't have a network connection. It would be a good idea for Waze to acknowledge I don't have a network connection, query the report, and submit it as soon as a network connection is present.

  13. Sale to Google

    I really wish you hadn't sold to Google. I know it means lots of money for you but it means my privacy using your app is gone. And most likely, they will close you down and try to force me to Google maps but I won't use the app.

    I know one person won't make a difference, but when the sale is completed I will stop using Waze.

  16. Statistics about your report sent to inbox

    After you report something it would be cool to get a message in the inbox describing how many you helped choose an optimal route, and how much time they saved

  17. Allow weather alerts to be turned on/off individually.

    Allow each type of weather alert to be turned on/off individually. I can see that it's foggy or raining; I don't need an alert for that.

  19. When you report a red light camera it should cover the area of the camera not just one side

    When you report a red light camera it should cover the area of the camera not just one side. When you get close to that area you will get a alert no matter what side you are on.

  20. Car pool - Allow none car holders to join a ride by car pool option.

    Meaning that if I'm sitting on a bus stop and would like to get somewhere I can use my waze application to see who with a car and waze is driving on my direction. If the car holder is picking me up I will pay some fee to the driver according to the KM made.
