  1. Allow to check traffic on a given time

    Adding an option to see traffic on a selected time could really help.
    For example, if I know I need to be somewhere at a given time, I would like to see what is the traffic one hour before, 45 minutes before and so on.
    Google now has something similar. It recommends when should you go out and start driving to arrive at the planned time.

  4. Once you have your itinerary, shortcuts to change to the fastest way, shorter and/or cheapest

    So, when you are already driving, it is not that easy to select another road, what if we have a "shortcut" to change to the fastest, shortest or cheapest ?

  5. Option to Ignore Construction Zones

    It would be tremendously helpful to have the ability to ignore construction zones/certain stretches of road. And if possible with the option to automatically ignore if speeds are less than a certain threshold.

  8. Make navigation printable especially going to rural destinations?

    Often I travel up into rural locations of TN to fish. It would be reassuring to have a printed route list to take with me just in case I have no signal.
    I love Waze but the odd time it's got us lost as navigator.
    My daughter in California was commuting home one evening while talking with my wife. My daughter now has Waze on her Samsung but my wife opened Waze and was able to help her circumvent a traffic Jam!
    Wonderful

  9. In Brazil we have a lot of people that take bus too early to get in their jobs.

    In Brazil we have a lot of people that take bus too early to get in their jobs. Sometimes it happens 5am, 6am, to arrive in the office at 7am or 8 am. So a lot of people take the transit time to sleep. The idea is, to keep the waze working, and when you pass by a pre defined point, it vibrates to help you wake up. So it minimize the chance to lost your arrival point, and the users can sleep very calm.

  12. Use acceleration sensors to improve navigation

    I think it will be good idea to use acceleration sensors to improve navigation when GPS signal is weak. For example in tunnels. Also it may help in situation when GPS accuracy is insufficient. For example to better determination of position in roundabout.

    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.

  14. Geotagged event triggers

    Allow the user to define an event such as playing one of your own sounds, display one of your own photos or play a music track at or near specific places. Example uses - get onto a fast stretch of road and your music changes, and changes back when you get into town again. Get a mile from a toll booth and a note appears telling you how much money to have ready. Drive near a grocer and your recording says "don't forget to get the eggs". Go past a tourist attraction and a recording tells you about it. You…

  15. Distance to drive after a turn

    After a turn, it'd be nice if the distance before the next turn is said. something like "turn right and go straight for 5 miles"

  16. Expire events option

    Give a general or category specific option to delete/expire events. e.g. most crashes/accidents are cleared in 30 minutes or less, yet the event lingers in Waze for 2 hours or more. So let the user chose how old an event will be displayed.

  17. Voice Instructions: Bear Right, Keep Right

    Voice navigation instructions use "Keep Right (Left) in 2 conditions making it a bit confusing: When on an undivided road approaching a divided section of the same road, and when approaching an intersection with a gradual right (left) turn. "Bear Right (Left)" would be a more appropriate instruction for the 2d situation.

  19. add option to disable traffic based routing

    When routing, waze often attempts to route around traffic. Waze is used occasionally for just the first part of a journey (navigating a downtown area, for example) and I find it selecting a completely different route every time I use it because it attempts to route around the traffic at work.

    Another example is that during extremely heavy traffic in a snowstorm, waze had me exiting at every freeway exit and then entering the freeway again, simply because the freeway exits had little traffic on them compared to the freeway itself.

    Because of this, there should be a simpler routing…

  20. Barre des incident de parcours

    serait il possible d'afficher en permanence la barre de l'état du traffic de navigation qui s'affiche au début lors du calcul du parcours? Elle se mettrait à jour toutes les 5 minutes. avec notre position en fonction du parcours général ou d'une portion de 50km qui avance en même temps.
