  1. Add user report confirmation/cancelation buttons for all events

    Add user report confirmation/cancelation buttons for all events, similar to "police/not here". This would allow to refresh the reports in the map by other drivers, provide more 'live' info + quicker cancellation of outdated events.

  2. option to display any menu item shortcut on map

    in the menu have an option next to each item, to display or not a shortcut on the map. this allows users to have exactly what they want to appear over the map. maybe one might want just routing related icons, another may want mapping stuff, another report related...its up to the user

  3. Display the bottom left side temperature according to the current GPS position

    In summer, turn on the air conditioning, for that reason, we ignore the temperature outside the car. It would be very helpful to visualize the temperature at the position where we are according to the GPS

    My device is a Blackberry Torch, my application to know the weather is BBWeather (http://www.tateu.net/software/, binary and source code). This application uses a wheater.com APIs.

  4. marking beginning/end of towns while driving

    Would you consider introducing an option to the client, a dedicated button or something, that we could press while recording new roads to mark the beginning/end of town/village?
    This would be a great option to me.
    One single tap on the screen would mark end/beginning of a town and then it would be easier for us to find that place in Cartouche and give it its correct name thus avoiding mistakes!
    This shouldn't be very distracting during driving - only one tap away :-). It'd be great if the client recognized this and didn't break the route in half, but…

  5. Add option to resize the screen allowing to see all members of a team in special color 4 better view

    This option will allow a member of a team to see in a much more easy way, where are the other members of his team.
    Another side of this option, could be a live interface on web,... where a member could see the others members of a team.

  6. When measurement is on metric earning points should be on metric too

    When measurement setting is metric (or meters) the rest of the system should be on metric too including earning points and clock which should be 24 hour clock

  7. Only allow client to record roads if GPS accuracy is less than 20m

    There are far too many unnamed and named roads running parallel to each other due to poor GPC accuracy. Please make the client disallow recordings to start or automatically stop recording if GPS accuracy drops below an agreed threshold.

  9. True 3d view

    When in 3D, display the terrain also. This will
    help in navigation as well as offering a function not available in any other satnav. I think the x,y and z co-ordinates are being captured already.

  10. System constantly reroutes then the server times out & deletes exsiting route

    When I set a route the system constantly reroutes almost every quarter to half a mile. At least 50% if not greater I will then get a message that the server timed out. This wouldn't be so bad except that when this happens it deletes the route I'm trying to follow until it tries again and usually then the server returns a route. This makes Waze virtually unusable. Please make it that once Waze has a route that it continues displaying and following that route until it gets new information from the user or server for a new route. Even…

  12. have client generate text file of all unallowed moves while driving to view on computer

    I know the system technically does this automatically but I was thinking today as I was going through the cartouche fixing every intersection in my hometown, how it'd be handy if the client generated a text file showing all the things you did that you "shouldn't" have. Almost every intersection in my area has restricted turns that simply don't exist (it's a small town, there's only one turn restriction and no one ways, so i realize this is easier than most) but I was thinking it'd be handy if I could open a txt file generated by the client that…

  13. sync travel points between devices / website

    Would be a good point to be able to edit bookmarks for destinations/origins from within webinterface instead of device and keep them in sync for easier route planning

  14. Install a button to Report desable car

    Several times a back up is create by a desable car on the road and because Im driving is to complicate to chose road hazard and also tape desable car.
    For that reason I think a fast way to report this type of events will help all wazers

  15. groups but no friend list on waze

    Hi all! Im wondering just one thing. On waze you can join a group, but there is no way to have a “friend list” for locating them, know if there are online, send address or just chat. Can this feature be added?

  16. Show all notifications as popup

    I like that all the notifications: police, traffic, accidents, missing notifications are displayed as 1 km, it currently only shows the police, but it would be good to include all the others, one may thus slow down or take alternate routes

  17. Hide notifications older than XX hours.

    I've seen reports that are a couple hour up to 24 hours old. It'd be nice to be able to have an option that lets users choose the age limit of notifications they'd like to see.

  18. Navigate through alerts popups

    There have been many times when I'm stopped and Waze is cycling through the different alerts that people have reported and I'll see the tail end of one and then it changes and I have no way to go back to see it again.

    I would like to see a forward, backwards, and don't show this alert again option.

  19. Give bonus points for map-error-areas marked as "field trip needed" and highlight them in client.

    am's may flag map errors as "field trip needed". how about a little bonus for wazers that make a detour and fix the error?

  20. Remember Events filter

    I would like the client to remember the setting I select for filtering Events. "Around Me", "On Route" and "My Groups" are great filters, but when I return to the map/driving view, I want my Events count at the top to be filtered and when I tap on it/select it, I want my Events report list to still be filtered by the same criteria.
