  4. Improve starting voice directions

    When setting off from a parking lot I find wave does not give directions left or right when exiting the parking lot. A lot of times I'm left guessing, or having to study the map. It's almost like wave has no idea where it is!

    Once you've made the turn its gets on track.

  5. I was wondering of you could add a feature to tell others when a stoplight is out at an intersection ?

    Just to add a feature that can mark where a stoplight is out or blinking red.

  6. Display Speed cameras in driving direction only

    Can you please add an option so that Speed cameras are only shown if located on the right side of the road. Speed cams on the other side have no point ! It is disturbing to see you are approaching it and then, it turns out it is on the other side.

  7. 'Add a stop' by touching the map

    Today, you can only add a stop by choosing a favourite or typing a location. Often, when I drive to a certain location, I stop by a small detour on the map of a location I just know by ... location. I think being able to just open up the map and touch where you need to go would greatly improve the 'Add a stop' feature

  8. Fix Nav/Add a stop -

    When I add a stop (iPhone 4s) The navigation usually gets "stuck" in "proceed to the highlighted route" and updates sporadically, if at all. The car icon tracks properly on the map, but the text is frozen. This happens most of the time I use "Add a stop".

  10. I need help to find out why my normal route is not given us an option anymore.

    For whatever reason a couple of days ago my normal option is now not given us a route when I go to navigation. I'm not sure what happened, or if there was an update. I am not happy anymore.

  12. Marking roads as non-allowed transit routes

    In Sweden quite a few roads are prohibited from use when it comes to transit routes, usually because they run through densely populated areas and school zones. Using these prohibited routes will get you a fine if caught.

  13. Get a parking space from another wazer

    In metropolitan areas or popular parking spaces can be useful having a slot from a leaving wazer. The mechanism could be similar to that of the pick-up feature, maybe with credits to "buy" or "sell" a parking slot.

  14. provide a Navigation Prompt whenever the road name changes.

    This is needed in two scenarios:
    When a turn from Smith Ave to Jones Street, for example, is slight enough the client provides no direction. No matter how slight the angle of entry to a new road is, the client should say "turn right" or "slight right" on the road with a different name than the current road. This is especially confusing if Waze is running in the background, since my eyes are telling me I'm at an interchange and Waze isn't providing direction.

    Also, when the road you are driving on changes names but continues straight in the same…

  15. Auto-Replay Messages, when in use...

    I have. Razr Maxx, and everytime I drive the Smart Actions, auto answer the SMS, but only replay the SMS... A very good option for Waze, will be Auto-Replay messages from Viver, What'sApp, e-Mail, etc.

  16. Better direction instructions - instead of current wayfinder segment work-aound

    Wayfinder segments (‘street’ > ‘direction’) look like a pure workaround to me and for good reasons they are primarily used for ramps entering a freeway or at freeway intersections.

    For intersections within a city or other non freeway roads outside of cities there is no satisfying solution as the street name often is NOT the best navigation instruction.

    This is a critical issue in countries like Germany where “smaller” roads often are neither known by their numbers nor by their street names.

    A “new” „wayfinder“ feature should not miss-use the semantics of the street name field.
    Instead we should have…

  17. Be able to view a summary list of delays and congestion

    Have a menu option to be able to view at a glance the delays and congestion on your route. Whilst it's ok to see there are delays on the "Go" screen you can't easily tell where they are or how they will affect you.

  18. Bug in when driving using Navigate adjusting "Avoid Highways and Tolls"

    I think that if I am using the Navigate, but then decide to turn on or off the Navigation settings (Settings > Navigation) "Avoid Toll Roads & Avoid Major Highways, it should address this when it refreshes your route, but it does not. I have to completely Stop navigation and restart.

  19. Waze should reroute my drive when there is a accident and major backup, right? But it does not. Do I have a setting not setup correctly?

  20. STOP 180° car rotation when standing still

    So I come to a stop light, and after a while, my car and map (not the screen) rotates, I guess, as it thinks I actually did make a U turn. Problem is my speed is 0km/h. It happens even when you have a destination to navigate to, and then, all of u sudden, I'm turned around and I'm being shown to make first to the right. I start driving, the whole thing rotates ones again, and I miss my left turn !?!?! I think it's because it get's a satellite position which shifted a bit, so it thinks that…
