  1. Make Waze carpool work also for drivers who drive more than 100 kilometers.

    First I thought this was a bug., but...
    As it was clearly explained to me by Waze support, Waze carpool does not work for drivers who make long rides, and Waze has no intention of fixing it.
    Waze carpool only match with passengers which have similar characteristics of the ride .
    This is proven easily. The shorter the ride you plan, the more passengers you have, on the same route.
    I suggest allowing picking passengers at any spot on the way and doping them at any spot on the way.

  2. The shortest route to the alternative.

    I propose to leave only one alternate (shortest) route, other than the main (fastest) route, which would not count the statistics on the segments.

  3. Improve routing server system

    Help customers by giving consistent, high-quality service through your routing server.
    I am a long-time user of Waze and I live in Dayton, Ohio. In more than one quarter of my travels, Waze fails with a "routing server timeout" not just once each time, but repeatedly until I stop trying. Grrrrr.
    The failure rate is even higher when I travel outside of the Dayton area. Please fix your service or redesign the routing server logic.
    - On long trips, I have to select smaller subsets of my route in order to receive traffic-based guidance.
    Then I have to enter the…

  5. Commuter or Familiar Route Mode

    I would like to see Commuter/Familiar Route mode. I do not need turn by turn directions on my regular commute, just a heads up of which of the three ways I can go is best this morning and anything that pops up along the way...I would want to run the app minimized with pop up notices and alerts only when the route needs to change and what the change is...

  7. eco-driving

    Hello,

    I’ve been using Waze for a last couple of years and I am very thankful for all of the ideas and their implementations in your app. I would like to propose and additional feature to compliment people who drives with keeping the ecology in mind. You already collecting data about how fast people drive their vehicles. If you can build a profile for each Waze user about his/her eco-driving habits and then for instance collaborate with a financial institution that can offer a lower interest rate to those who are eco-drivers, or something like that I think we all…

  8. Strada facendo (On the road)

    STRADA FACENDO (ON THE ROAD) sarà una comunità di persone che, consapevole degli insostenibili costi ambientali del proprio stile di vita legato alla mobilità, vorrà condividere i propri quotidiani spostamenti in modo da ridurre significativamente i mezzi sulle strade ed i relativi impatti sull’ inquinamento. L'innovatività di questo progetto sta nel fatto che partendo dall'analisi degli spostamenti quotidiani dell'individuo l'app propone la migliore soluzione di spostamento in termini di sostenibilità economica e ambientale (car pooling, car sharing, mezzi pubblici, bicicletta, piedi, un mix di tutti questi). Qualora foste interessati ad approfondire, sono a disposizione. Saluti

  14. Audible output for speed

    Provide audible output for actual speed. Speed display is too small to see and numerous requests for larger font seem to have produced no change.

  16. Roadtrip and EZRead modes

    Leapfrog Magellan and Garmin:

    ROADTRIP MODE
    "Next gas this route: 7, 19, 55"
    "Preferred gas: 19, 124"
    "Next town: 44"
    "Rest stops on this route: 25, 167"
    Flag (arrows and distance) interesting features like mountains, rivers, parks, etc.

    UI
    Easy-read mode: speed/limit and text 3X what they are now (allow people >50 in the focus groups)
    Not necessary to show every irrelevant road
    High contrast mode (surely we don't think pale blue on black is easy to read?)
    Easier to switch, or auto switch, between miles and km between US and Canada, and UK and Europe.
    Allow no destination to…

  19. Show me the area

    It would be great if Waze had an option for people visiting an area. For example, I am in town for a business trip. My meetings end early. It is noon and I don't have to be at the airport until 5PM. Let me enter my destination and time, much like a scheduled drive, but offer choices to select of local points of interest I can go to along the way to pass the time and make the most of being in an area.

  20. Add property search and listing through maps. Which is helpful for the users and generate revenue for you through listing.

    Eg. you could choose Dubai as most population are depend rental as well known for real estate or any well panned city.
