  1. Google+/Latitude check-in button

    The Foursquare check-in feature is nice, but I prefer Google Latitude/Google+ check-ins and would love to have a check-in button for that so I don't have to exit Waze to get to it.

  2. First of all, this is a great app, as far as alerts would you add EMS to list.

    First of all, this is a great app, as far as alerts; would you add EMS to Report menu? And maybe move Chit Chat to the Main Menu? Thank again.

  3. Offer a "Known Enforcement Point" report

    Offer a "Known Enforcement Point" report the way trapster does it. Report an area where police tend to hide and take radar.

  4. Eco mode

    How about an Eco mode that would give you a warning beep if you accelerate or decelerate too fast or drive over the posted speed limit? Of course, the driving speed (for traffic) would need adjusted (because if you're driving 10 under the speed limit for MPG reasons that doesn't mean that there's traffic issues).

  5. Indicator on alert for direction

    When an alert is displayed on the map, it is generally impossible to tell whether the alert applies to the current direction of travel or the opposite.

  6. Possibly Clear Up what is meant by the "Traffic Jam" reports

    Instead of having "Moderate", "Heavy" and "Standstill", why not clarify these categories a little more. They could possibly be instead "Congestion", "Slow Down" and "Standstill". I think these adequately reflect the different degrees of traffic jams that occur. Congestion is still dangerous but might not reflect a great decrease in speed. When drivers will have to decrease their speed that is useful to know, and of course "Standstills" are self explanatory.
    An alternative option could be to elaborate on the provided categories more instead of changing them. They just seem a little ambiguous.

  7. REVERSIBLE ROADS

    There are some countries (At least in Santiago, Chile and Mexico City where I live) that due to a high traffic times, some of the main streets gets REVERSIBLE, meaning that from certain times of the day the regular way of the street is REVERSED so the traffic can be more fluid. I would like to propose the facility of making REVERSIBLE roads

  8. Fix Radar on route

    Could you include the fix radar in the report list and especially in the report list "On route".

  9. Change Mute/Unmute to Guidance Full/Minimal/None

    Right now users can Mute and Unmute from the Navigation Menu. Instead of offering this option, how about turn that button into a toggle between Full/Minimal/None guidance. Really the only reason I mute navigation is because I'm heading home and don't need full guidance (and my fiance gets annoyed lol). But I'd still like to hear alerts. When it comes to minimal guidance, I prefer it still say the street name, but only tell me when I'm suppose to turn and not warn me 1-2 times before approaching the turn.

  11. open parking and garage fees

    Parking like googles lost app Open spot + parking garages with pricing. All of this is easily user generated. I think Googles Open Spot would have success with Waze and help it spread even more.

  12. Fading Report Icons

    After a report is added to the map, the icons should slowly begin to become transparent. This way the age of upcoming reported incidents can be determined at a glance. If a fading report icon is reconfirmed by another Wazer, it should regain 100% of its opacity and the fading cycle should begin again.

  14. Add options in reports

    It would be great if you could add mobile speed cams in the speed cam pane, ice and wind to the weather panel, and stopped car in the on road warrning panel.
    Thank you

  16. parking lot landmarks / traffic analysis

    I would like to see certain landmarks not count as traffic analysis. If an area is marked as a restaurant, parking lot, gas station, etc.. the time a waze client spends there should NOT count against traffic analysis. Wazers can't be expecte to turn their nav system on and off just to order a burger, or fill up the tank. In reality, a nav system should be as "hands off" as possible for the daily commute. start waze when you get in the car.. go on your trip, pull over at the gas station and leave waze running. go through…

  18. Add option "district/district name" in the street naming part

    When a (bigger) city has several parts/ districts with different names, it could be nice to see at certain level of zoom the district name. When you zoom close enough, you should be aware of the city name already and thus district name would be imho more suitable.

  20. It would be great if on Favorites I could designate my route.

    It would be great if on Favorites I could designate my default route. Every once in a while I have to go a different way (toll road) and then Waze "forgets" my preferred route and it isn't even an option in routes any more. It makes it hard to check the traffic in the morning!
