  1. Don't Record Client Tracks within Origin/Dest Zone

    As a new wazer and getting into editing I noticed several "map problems" and new roads caused by entering/exiting parking lot or building structures.

    Current work around is to add Parking POIs or add the parking lot roads as road type parking.

    I believe this could be alleviated by simply not having Waze client record or "count" the GPS track within a set distance from Origin (time device first plugged in or new navigation started) and Destination (device turned off or navigation stopped)

    I would recommend a distance of about 100 yards.

    This should help cut down on the extra…

  4. Optional "no map" (trip computer) view when route is known

    8 out of 10 times I use Waze driving to and from work, a route I know very well so I don't need Waze to show me my position on the map.
    What I instead would like is a "trip computer" kind of interface, showing me things like my current speed, current speed limit (if known), maybe a color code for traffic ahead on route (green, yellow, red), ETA, current road name (nice to have, not need to have - I know where I am), live updates of incidents (needs to update themselves automatically), textual navigation instructions like "turn right…

  5. Show small roads in rural areas

    The Waze client, and also the "live map" on the web site, hides smaller roads as you zoom out. This is fine in cities where there are many roads. However, in rural areas, the small roads are simetimes the only roads, and if they are hidden then the map can appear completely blank.

    I suggest changing to an algorithm that takes the amount of clutter into account. Something like "first disply the major highways; if the screen is not yet too cluttered then also display the minor highways; if the screen is not yet too cluttered then also display the…

  6. Create a "soft warning" for known situations.

    For example: A location where speed traps are consistently reported would have a warning in a radius such as "speed traps have been reported here." The color of the warning could fade from red to orange as reports decline or vice versa. There's one street I travel where there's a cop shooting radar 80% of the time. There could be a warning about that regardless of if a Wazer had been through recently.

  7. The Catalan voice is not good enough

    It is great to have Catalan as an option in the iPhone client (thanks!!) but the voice used is not good, as it mispronounces some sounds. The voice has a strong Spanish accent.

  10. Add "disabled vehicle" to Hazard -- Road

    Twice now I have come across vehicles stalled in the roadway. None of the categories in hazard -- road fits this case. I use "other" but that's not very descriptive.

  11. The name of the road to the client.

    Please do make that to create roads could soon Dowa name streets and roads in the client, and then edish record, but all do not remember the name.
    Sincerely, Alexander.

    Пожайлуста сделайте, чтобы при создании дорог можно было сразу довать название улицам и дорогам в клиенте, а то едишь записываешь, а название всех не помнишь.
    С уважением Александр.

  14. option for automatic bug reporting

    When waze displays a message that it has encountered a bug and asks me if I would like to send it the timer is very short and I often cant tap OK in time while driving.

    It would be great if there was a setting that allowed the user to select "always send bug/error reports"

  15. "Explore" Route and cookie munching

    Create a new type of routing for joy rides. The name could be "Explore".
    Waze will generate a route to the user discover his neighborhood and/or help improove waze with cookie munching.

    Rationale: many people get in their cars, bikes or bicycles and go for a ride, just for the pleasure, to know more about the neighborhood, to see some countryside etc. Currently no GPS device or app has a way to helping the users in this. This would be a differentiating feature for Waze and also would help improve Waze database with driving data.

    More details about the route: …

  16. Ability to choose a route vs. choosing a destination

    I take the same route from work to home everyday because it's the fastest way to beat the rush hour traffic flow. I always route to "home".

    Often, I am in the same general area as my workplace and trying to get home and waze puts me on the same roads that I would take take on my work -> home commute. But just as often, this isn't actually the faster way. It does this because it has learned my route preference for going from home to work.

    If, when heading home, I could choose a route (ie, "work to…

  17. Include reported time with notification popup

    When alerting the driver to a speed trap, accident, hazard, etc. with a popup notification it would be very informative to include the time these were reported or the age of the report (i.e. "Reported 48 minutes ago")

  20. Petrol station prices

    I use this app every day http://itunes.apple.com/it/app/prezzi-benzina/id373044013?mt=8 to find a the best petrol station in terms of price.
    From my point of view, this app should be integrated in Waze.
