  1. 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 :

  3. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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!

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
