    Warn motorists of Emergency Responders (police cars, tow trucks, ambulances) with a Slow Down Move Over warning. Lives are being lost at alarming rates and any support of the move over laws are greatly appreciated.

    Great news! The Waze Beacons Program is in the works and constantly expanding.
    The Waze Beacons Program is the first scalable, affordable solution in the world to power navigation in tunnels. Currently available in select tunnels throughout Pittsburgh, Haifa, Israel, Paris and Rio de Janeiro – seamless navigation is available to Wazers underground simply by turning on Bluetooth functionality.

  4. Tabitha Brown

    PLEASE get Tabitha Brown to voice turn by turn directions. Her voice is beyond calming, reassuring, and peaceful. She’s an actress so it wouldn’t be difficult to find her. She’s on IG and TikTok @iamtabithabrown. You can find her on Facebook under her name. THIS WOULD BRING WOULD RESULT IN THOUSANDS, IF NOT, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of downloads.

    P.S. if you need help finding things the culture would appreciate and get behind, bring me on board. I gave you Tabitha for free.

  5. 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. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Time zone adjustment

    Waze should adjust ETA to the local time when destination is a different time zone. When you leave Phoenix for southwest CO, for example, the ETA should be in mountain time, not AZ time. Currently, the ETA only adjusts when your phone automatically adjusts as you cross the time zone. It would be nice to know drive time is 6 hours, but ETA is 7 hours due to time change.

  12. The Golden Girls as voice options

    As a fan of classic sitcoms, "The Golden Girls" is one of my favorites. I think it would be awesone to have Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur), Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan), Rose Nylund (Betty White) and Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty) as navigaton voice options.

  14. Commute Mode

    I would love to be able to set up a commute with stops. Maybe ask a few questions like:

    How many stops do you have on your commute (kid drop off, passenger pick up for carpooling, coffee)?

    Does your destination ever change? Be able to have different commute profiles.

    Then ask how long you are at each stop normally.

    If it is the normal route, then it will only warn you of traffic slows or hazards.

    Bonus- If I am running late, set up someone to notify, husband or daycare provider ect.

  17. choose my custom route!

    Have you ever thought that the driver does every day the same way to go to work or home, so he already has his favorite ways? Have you ever thought about leaving the driver predefine these paths and when to consult the routes have a new area for "Custom Routes" and showing the conditions of transit and time for those 3 chosen paths? I would feel more comfortable in knowing how long it would take if I had chosen that MY way specifically. Thanks!

  18. 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…

  19. Option to disable route recalculating alert. That nerve wracking chirp is driving me crazy!

    Whoever approved that grating & obnoxious squawking route recalculation alarm should be fired. I drive a cab and even my customers cringe when they hear it and say "what's that awful noise". PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET US TURN IT OFF! Alerts only should mean alerts only. Hearing that damn noise screech and grate 5 times when I'm driving through a parking lot is maddening!

  20. Say what side of the road the desination is on.

    When getting close to your destination tell the user what side of road it is on, so they can be in the correct lane or start looking on the side for it.
