  2. Lane Guidance

    While using Waze on highways lately, I have begun to think that having the ability to see what lane becomes the off ramp would be great, especially in complex city interchanges.

    Portuguese: Estava usando o Waze em rodovias e comecei a pensar que seria ótimo ter a capacidade de ver qual pista pegar, especialmente em trevos complexos dentro das cidades.

    Spanish: Últimamente me he dado cuenta que al utilizar waze en capitales se hace muy necesario que waze indique cual carril de una calle, avenida o autopista, llega a ser una rampa, especialmente en complejos intercambios.

  4. Auto Shutdown at Destination

    When arriving at your destination have Waze prompt an Auto-Shutdown with a 10 second countdown. I always shutdown my Waze when I arrive and instead of having to click menu and then shutdown, why not have Waze offer to do it automatically. This will also save battery if people forget.

  5. Truck route option

    I use Waze everyday both on my commute to work and once I'm working (driving a semi around Chicagoland and all burbs within 50 miles or so). It would be nice to have an option to navigate truck routes when needed but then shut it off for when I'm in my car. MANY streets don't allow trucks due to weight or low overpasses, etc. Just a thought to help fellow truckers avoid getting in a bind! Maybe even reporting ability to post height/weight restrictions on certain roads...

  6. Police Heat Map

    What about a feature that shows popular police trap locations. There are locations in my town that are popular with police to setup speed traps. If those areas could glow blue like traffic areas glow red, I think that could be a great feature. If you could use the information that wazers report, then that info could be processed through an algorithm that show the high probability areas.

  7. Use the voice of Sam Heughan (star of "Outlander") - the show is a big hit in UK, USA, Australia, etc.

    Use the voice of Sam Heughan (star of "Outlander" TV show) - clear scottish accent - the show is a big hit in UK, USA, Australia, etc. Would be good idea for a sales pitch.

  8. Allow declaring Toll Roads and the option to not navigate through them

    Waze wants to route me through a toll road every day and can't seem to find an alternate route until I actually drive it. I want to be able to avoid Toll roads, which means tolls roads need to be able to be declared in the editor.

  9. Sound alerts before police and radar

    I think that having a sound ringing before radar or police could help us. That's better than looking to the phone to see what's on infront. That's would give a safty driving and a secure alert.
    That's important for me
    I hope you'll do that.

  10. The ability to plan a trip with multiple stops

    The ability to enter a starting location, an ending location, points in between and have waze provide the route and order.

    For example if I am going on vacation and want to stop at three stores and get gas on my way there...

  11. Optimized functionalities for motorbikes

    It's too bad Waze doesn't offer any of these functionalities for riders/bikers:
    - deactivate traffic jams in the time calculation (or consider we are at around 50 km/h on these parts of the path)
    - proposing winding/twisting roads with different levels, just like Tomtom and Garmin already do with their devices
    - allowing to create more than one step point to get the perfect itinerary
    - allowing the load of external files (such as .gpx for example) to create roadbooks on our computer (with Google Maps or else) and then send it to our smartphone.

    In brief, just a few…

  15. show street name currently on

    It would be great to show the name of the street you're currently on, as well as that of the next turn. Also, show the name of the street you're on when not in navigation mode.

  17. Report « ride against traffic » on highway // signalement dédié "contre-sens" sur autoroutes

    A report “ride against traffic” would be:
    - More easily and faster to report, despite stress.
    - The other wazers know immediately what kind of danger is reporting.
    - Set off the report 1.5 km / 1 mi before the action take place.

    -- français --

    Pour avoir vécu récemment un contre-sens, c'est frustrant de ne pas pouvoir signaler aux autres wazers un danger de ce type, assez fréquent malgré ce qu'on peut croire (1 contre-sens / semaine en France sur autoroutes, sans compter ceux qui ne sont pas détectés).
    Un wazer avait indiqué un "danger sur la route" avec…

  18. Jai Haze for New Waze Voice

    Jai Haze is a well known YouTube Vape Reviewer with a comedic voice that’s a cross between Vince Vaughn and Jersey Shore, let’s get Jais Voice on Waze, Jammies and all, to bring his comedic wittiness to our morning commutes! Can you just play him in the backround of Waze? Yes you can obviously but wouldn’t it be more of a fun matrix like commute with him reviewing the new Vape Device in the backround and him also telling you to turn your Jammy left?

  20. Implement U-turn navigation instruction and ability to allow u-turns at intersection.

    In exUSSR countries it is a common practice to use u-turn. Traffic lights at major intersections may have special arrow to allow only left turns and u-turns. But currently Waze cannot use this feature to build optimal route.
