  2. Always allow to use the options to report problems, even after arriving ;-)

    Always allow to use the options to report problems like roadworks ect., even after arriving or interrupted trip. Why not? 🤷🏼‍♂️

    My trick now is to start the navigation again to the same destination and hit the report botton who just came available again😄👍

  5. I would like more funny and amusing voices to be made available for your Canadian users . I have seen this suggested many times but nothing

    I would like to have more funny and amusing voice options be made available for your Canadian users. I have seen this suggested so many times but nothing has been done about it. Currently I have to use Jane because she is one of the few that have the street names option so why not make street names on more of the voice and create some new ones please.

  6. Move notifications back to top of screen

    With the new update, the notifications are now at the bottom of the screen. Where my phone has to sit on my dash, my car computer screen blocks it and now I can’t see the notifications

  7. Enable selecting police as "hidden" AND on the "other side"

    I can report police as being "hidden" OR on the "other side" but I can't report them as being "hidden" AND on the "other side". Please enable multiple location options to be selected so we can report police as being "hidden" AND on the "other side".

  10. ניתוח נקודות חמות להימצאות שוטרים

    שוטרים בדרך כלל מתקמים במקומות וזמנים קבועים.
    על ידי ניתוח עבר של נתוני דיווחים על שוטרים אפשר לנתח נקודות חמות שבהן יש סיכוי להימצאות שוטר, אם נהג נוסע בתוך האיזור החם ויש בו שוטר הוא פשוט ילחץ על כפתור אחד בלבד שיציב את השוטר במקום החם שכבר נותח מראש והוא לא יצטרך ללחוץ על הרבה כפתורים, אם מספר מסויים של משתמשים מדווחים בפרק זמן קצר שבאותו האיזור החם אין שוטר, ההתראה על האיזור תמחק לפרק הזמן הנוכחי

  11. More voices

    I have not seen any new celebrity voices in a LONG time. Cookie monster is only entertaining for a couple days. But there have been no more. I once had Liam Nielson, but have not seen anything else. Where are they? I had Mr T on a Tom Tom long ago. For sesame street, how about the count, counting down the mikes/yards to your next stop?

  13. Ability to change location of speed indicator on display

    I have my phone mounted just above the radio in my car. When using waze on my phone in landscape mode I cannot see the speed indicator as is it completely blocked by my hand. I have to either lift my hand off the wheel or move my entire upper body to the right to see around my hand/the wheel.

    I think we, the users, should be able to move buttons on the mobile device map around to the locations we want them to better suit individual vehicle setups. Either add options of preset locations or let the user put…

  15. Rest area notification

    I'd like to see a feature added which would notify the user when a rest area was within 5 or do miles ahead on the route or highway you're travelling. Rest areas are already marked in the Waze app, but a "near" notification at the top of the display would be very handy for the traveller. It should also be available in Android Auto or Apple Car Play.

  16. Add alert capability to post for Police to include those that are 'rolling' and in which direction . . .

    When posting an alert where Police are involved, there isn't an option to note whether they are moving in traffic and if they are rolling with you or in the opposite direction. I feel that would/should be a natural choice to be able to make while reporting, to benefit other 'Wazers' operating near you. That's what it's for, right?

  17. Waze as contact tracing app for Covid19

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to add « contact tracing for COVID19 to your waze app. You are thé defacto standard app in navigation and it’s only a small feature to add which could save potentially thousands of lives. PLEASE do sth about this, you are thé only ones that could offer à solution that Could Quickly be used by a broad audience.... You could warn people that crossed Covid19 positive people in thé last past weeks and help to avoid people that are positive...

    Kind rgds

    Dieter
