  1. Waze avisar sobre ciclistas

    Olá
    Gostaria de sugerir para que o waze informasse que há ciclistas no acostamento da rodovia (inclusive avisando sobre a lei que protege os ciclistas), tornando mais seguro para quem conduz o veiculo e tambem para o ciclista que trafega na via utilizando o aplicativo waze
    Ideia bacana, para tornar um transito mais seguro e com respeito.

  3. Bring back the Batmobile

    Kids loved it, would make car journeys much more fun as we would all pretend we're getting in the Batmobile to fight crime. For me this feature really set the Waze platform above the other navigation systems as it was no longer just navigation but a source for entertainment that would involve the whole family.

    I hope it comes back.

  4. sharing this idea of having an option to disable the "proceed to highlighted route" alert.

    sharing this idea of having an option to disable the "proceed to highlighted route" alert.

    As an uber driver, I am using local knowledge to move around traffic and would like the option to silence the "proceed to highlighted route" alert.

    Additionally there are times on a highway that waze thinks im on surface streets and constantly alerts me to "proceed to highlighted route" alert.

    I don't mind the "proceed to highlighted route" alert but its the overly loud sound that is disrupting to everyone in the car.

    thank you.

  6. Incluir postos com a abastecimento com GNV

    Está informação será muito útil, tendo em vista que são mais raros os postos que oferecem este combustível e o cilindro tem uma limitação de autonomia pequena em relação a um tanque de gasolina.
    Poderia tem uma informação de autonomia no app para cálculo de autonomia em distância de viagem em relação a postos disponíveis.
    Por exemplo. Ir de Porto Alegre a Florianópolis.
    Informar rota com pontos de abastecimento.

  7. Quicker access to warnings

    Driving at night, I see animals at the edge of the road only as I am passing them. By the time I react and get to the menu item they are a quarter mile behind. It would be nice to have the ability to instantly drop a pin at that point then add the nature of threat. Object in road, animals, pothole, etc. Another idea would be allowing users to choose one or two "instantly accessible" buttons to the map screen. Top level item. Pass animal..Instantly drop pin. This would greatly increase the accuracy of reported hazards.

  8. Change icon colors for persistent icons to avoid screenburn

    Both my s7 and s8 have screen burn from waze. Particularly, the orange/white icon that always stays on the screen while driving at thebottom right. Particularly the pure white border. On OLED screens, particularly if users select the option in waze to keep the screen awake, there is a VERY high chance of that icon burning into their screens. If you could just please change the icon color scheme from white/orange/orange cream to gray or black or ANY OTHER COLOR THAT IS DARK or give users the option to hide that icon, it would stop it from burning onto their…

  9. please add a skip next destination button

    lot of the times the interim destination is reached not exatly as waze would - like stopping on the other side of the street, or side street, etc. In these cases, a skip destination button would clear the crazy turns the navi tries do do to force me to the exact waypoint. Now I have to erase the navigation, and restart it with the final destination

  11. add auto/manual washing to petrol station services

    It would be great to see if a Petrol Station has a car wash, especially if it only has a self-serving pressure washer (great in the winter to get the dirt off quickly)

  12. Amelioration de la sécurité sur l'approche de zones dangereuses

    Je travaille actuellement sur un algorithme pour définir des zones dangereuses à partir de donnes ouvertes et gratuites en France : https://www.data.gouv.fr/en/datasets/base-de-donnees-accidents-corporels-de-la-circulation/
    Il serait intéressant de mettre en place des alertes de façon à ce que les conducteurs soient plus vigilants sur l'approche de ces zones.

  13. Email address change

    Currently isn’t possible to change the email address, but the user could have an issue if the email address is no longer available and the account is gong to be recovered and the user doesn’t remind the password.

    My suggestion is that Waze permits that the user be able to change the email address after a validation (similar when the mobile number is changed).

  14. I suggest adding an option to enable or disable passing through poorly lighted streets or back roads after dark, for increased safety.

    There are routes I have no issue taking during daylight hours, but that I'd be afraid to traverse after sunset. It would be terrific to be able to set the client to avoid those if I wouldn't complete the route before sunset. I do this proactively now, but because the client keeps trying to divert me to the faster back roads route, it doesn't, for example, route me around freeway accidents. Thank you!

  15. Good morning. I love you app, but I think it can be improved.

    When driving, I use your app to alert me to police presence, but....
    If I see a police car across the interstate, and that police car is not on the Waze app, I cannot alert vehicles driving in the opposite direction that there is a police car ahead of them. I cannot send a notification that he is there unless he is in my 'lane'. Can this be changed. I would like to notify other 'Wazers' driving in the opposite direction that a police car may be in front of them. Just a thought.

  17. Need speed limits for towing a trailer

    When pulling a trailer the speed limits are different so we need an option for towing a trailer so the speed limit will change.

  20. User Interface - Alert Visibility

    My eyesight is not as great as it once was, so the prompts for alerts to indicate if a hazard or alert is still present is a bit difficult to see. I would suggest it be enlarged to occupy most of the screen with a slightly transparent background. The bottom half of the screen could be green for a “Not There” button and the top half of the screen be yellow for “Hazard Still Present”. With the enlarged notification it should increase driver safety and engagement as well since it would be easier to read and more prominent.
