  1. Easier way to add a location to favorites

    Following a search, if a user wants to add to favorites, please pre-populate with the location name (vs. leaving it blank).

  2. Please add the ability to track Cash VS. Credit Gas Prices for each grade.

    There are gas stations that charge different prices depending on if you are paying Cash or with a Card. Adding the ability to enter a cash price AND a credit price for each grade would help. In NJ, I never know if the price listed for a station is the cash or the credit price.

  3. Use BIG red and green arrows to correct turn restrictions right away when you report a map issue.

    Problem now:
    You report incorrect turn restrictions in your app, someone will find it in the web editor and blind changes them mostly based on fuzzy or even no notes.

    Idea
    You mark a turn restriction map issue in your app. A simplified junction pops up with BIG red and green turn restrictions for your current view/street. You can toggle the arrows by tapping them allowing or disallowing turns.
    Press save and forget. The changes will be kept locally in the client in order to avoid being routed the wrong repeatedly until the next map update.

  4. Make Wazer clients help with map recalculation. Save on server cost by facilitating the power of each client.

    Basic idea: Distribute server tasks like map recalculation to Wazer clients.

    Benefit for Wazers
    - shorter map update cycles
    - the more wazers we are, the faster we get updates
    - "better service"
    - mooooore points ;-)

    Benefit for Waze
    - save on server costs
    - CPU power will increase over time (more Wazers; continuously improving client hardware)

    Important
    Calculation should only commence if
    - Wazer agrees to take part
    - Waze client is on power
    - Client battery is filled to a minimum level (e.g. 80%) - charge your phone first, then help other Wazers :-)
    - Data: Use…

  5. Add Contact Option for Map Error Reports

    When we as editors edit the map, we have been crippled to the UR lacking details in most cases, but under cartouche, we used to be able to look a user up and ask for more information, or at least provide a way for them to email us by writing some feedback.

    That has been missing with papyrus. If this is the way of the future, I'd like to request that if someone wants to be anonymous in the UR, that they can select it from the UR options, but if they'd like to be contacted so we can provide…

  6. Ability to report hazards left behind just now

    It would be great feature if can focus on driving in a hot situation and can report it later. Eg. reporting potholes or other dangers after bypassed them and can report them in safe way (eg. 100-300 meters later).

  7. Introduce favorities within Share my ride

    The new functionality is great, but it's pain to always search contacts and pick the right email. It would be great if the last selected choices were displayed, or the most frequent ones.
    Also, please, make the modal windows close itself once I make the selection - it stays opened and I have to close them manualy.

  8. add additional report radius

    5 miles it's often to small for decisions but 25 to far on longer local journeys, such as work. Adding a ten mile radius option and maybe increasing in multiples of ten would work better than the current format

  9. Pins Give Distance/Time from current location

    When you press and hold on the map for pop-up marker, it would be great to see the distance/time to that pin from current location.

  10. Need a practice mode. Why? Read on...

    After using it for couple of months, I still trying to get used to using it.

    One thing I wish it have is a practice mode where we can play around with it and make traffic reports.

    Yes, I know there are online instructions on how to use Waze.

    Why?

    Some people like me like to play around with it. If we have a chance to play around with it, we can get used to using it.

    That way, when we drive, we already know what we are doing.

    As it is now, I sometimes have to take my eyes…

  12. Monitize via radio

    Waze should look to monetize by partnering with radio stations for up to date traffic reports, get someone to sponsor the report (like they do with today’s helicopter based reports) and split the fee. Would be more profitable for both and save on the carbon footprint of flying multiple helicopters over every city.

  14. Do not allow new user editing until he/she participates in the forum

    In my opinion new users should not be allowed to edit anything until he/she creates an account on the forum, as a mean for other editors/AM/CM's to contact back the user in case the editing is being done improperly and/or is destroying previous work.

    As it is today there is no way to reach those users, unless one is lucky and find it out on the client (and he's not private), and would turn AM's into "lock everything" mode with the frustration of having the work destroyed by a newby.

  15. Perhaps add a change server function to the interface. With so many people taking their mobile phone abroad using the existing system could

    Perhaps add a change server function to the interface. With so many people taking their mobile phone abroad using the existing system could be a problem.

  16. Change Intonation and Add Back Street Names in Voice Nav

    I don't like the latest turn by turn voice navigator. Her intonation in American English makes it sound like she is always asking me a question. She should sound like she is making a statement. Also, she used to try to pronounce street names. I miss street names.

  18. Give option to specifically show nearest "pac-man" roads, if we want to do extra munching and not have to search for them.

    There are times when I might have a few extra minutes, not in a rush, and wouldn't mind doing some munching for extra points (and to help your maps). Would be cool if there was an option for something like that (e.g. "show nearby munching roads" or "show munching roads in red/highlight them"). Thanks for reading!

  19. Add some information to voice instructions

    כשמגיעם ליעד מדוע לא להודיע: הגעת ליעד מימינך, משמאלך וכו. (היה לי מכשיר בקנדה שמודיע כך וזה היה מאד מועיל).
    ועוד: המכשיר גם מסר מה יהיה כתוב על השלט בו עלי לפנות. גם זה מועיל...

  20. Track milage

    You should let users keep track of current milage. For example there us a goal of 500 miles in a week. Why cant we look up how many we have done this week.
