  1. Slight modification to American English voice prompts when navigating from unnamed roads to named roads.

    When transitioning from a network of unnamed roads to a named road, waze will say (American English), "Turn left at Pearl St, then turn right at Pearl St" (example encountered when navigating from the Whole Foods parking lot on Pearl St to 1620 Pearl St in Boulder, CO). These transitions frequently aren't signed, though I understand this makes sense for on-ramps. However, it would make more sense and be consistent in both situations to change the article from "at" to "toward." You'd then hear, "Turn left toward Pearl St, then turn right at Pearl St." "To" would also work as…

  3. Parking without being in navigation

    Right now if you are using the navigation feature waze can pin point where you parked but ONLY while navigation is activated

  4. I do not seem to be able to set the timezone. The app appears to set off GMT so it shows as night on the maps here when it is daytime?

  5. Emergency Area Shut downs

    It would be useful for area managers to be able to shut down larger areas (a few blocks at a time) for emergencies (like a local fire which is closing many blocks) or planned events

  6. Should go to report events in the opposite direction on all road types

    For example, you are driving north on a freeway and see an accident on the southbound lane, then you should be able to report it so that those who are heading south receive information as early as possible, and can change route

  7. Improve the advanced warning pop-up

    Currently when driving I get a warning for a hazard ahead, it has a "not there" and "thanks" button at the bottom. This box takes up about a quarter of the screen (and obscures about a third of the map) but does not contain any details. I have to then scroll the map until I see the hazard marker and tap it to see the details (which open in another pop-up). I can't dismiss the original pop-up because it is the only way to access the "not there" feature.

    My suggestion is to remove the "not there" and "thanks" button…

  8. I want to be able to have two different gas companys/stations as favorites in the setting menu.

    Why is t it possible to have two gas companys/stations as favorite?

    For me as an example, I have to credit cards from two different gas companys, but it is just possible to choose one company as favorite.

  10. Pause sharing instead of canceling

    I like being able to share my room with friends, but I found if I stop somewhere it cancels it. I shared a route with a friend the other day and stopped at a store and when they tried to follow me the request was denied – it was canceled. There must be some way to pause a route when someone is making a temporary stop.

  11. Problem with new version. Please, please, please...

    I own an AppRadio car stereo, which worked perfectly with Waze on my iPhone until last week when I updated Waze (now, two versions ago). Now, some Navigation lists won't not scroll on my AppRadio touchscreen (ie. I can no longer touch-&-drag 1) my Recents list on the main "Navigate" screen, 2) my "Favorites" list, and 3) any "Search results" list after I pick a Category. All other touch functions work (as far as I know), and I am still able to touch-&-drag through the "Categories" list itself (for some reason).

    Please, please, please revert to the old scrolling code…

  12. Add ferry as a driveable road type

    Ferry is currently not an option for road type. Ferries are unique in that that may require you to stop, wait for the ferry and then board. For this reason a ferry should be differentiated from a regular street.

  14. Can we please utilise groups that are more than 62 miles away?

    Seems a bit pointless in this smaller Internet enabled world that you can only join groups within 62 miles of you?

  16. Add a Help feature for people that are in trouble

    Add a feature, where if a different wazer needs help, changing a tire, or needs any other kind of help, they should be able to report it on the map, so that anyone else in the route could stop by and help them.

  17. Allow sharing of (or automatically display) sports events, concerts, and other planned events that are likely to cause traffic on your route

    On my commute home I often pass by a professional baseball stadium and a professional basketball court/ice hockey rink. I don't always check the schedule ahead of time and Waze often routes me directly in front of one or the other of these events. The traffic (pedestrian and auto both) can be terrible. It would be nice to know in advance that this is en-route and/or be able to re-route around such events so I can get home safe and sound.

  18. An user-resetable DATA counter? (want to know how much data used for a specific duration, not only in current session).

    Be able to check how much DATA used for a specified amount of time. Can check a month use for example.

  19. Limit locking of segments and Speed Cams, as some admins are very precious about their wrong edits and lock everything

    Some admins are over possessive of their edits that are wrong in many cases, and just lock everything they do including speed cam locations or small segments. This in my opinion is totally against the crowdsourcing model of Waze where you get the best up to date data by millions of users who can't actually override those locked edits!
