  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Enhanced Hazard Reporting by adding "Affecting Flow of Traffic" option

    Everybody has seen a car on the side of the road but how many of those are actually affecting the flow of traffic? People post them to gain points but often times it is not useful information.

  11. It would be great to put toll booths and customs check points on the maps. I have to put 'heavy traffic' every time I go through one. Thanks

    Post toll booths and customs check points so I don't have to put 'heavy traffic' every time I go through one.

  13. No need to show the route I have ALREADY travelled, just the part I am going to travel

    I got really confused for a bit today when somehow I was looking at where I had ALREADY travelled. There is no need to show the part of the route I already traversed. There is only the need to show where I am going.

  14. New road segment for yields

    Currently the routing algorithm assigns a penalty where ever a junction is located in the editor. I believe no penalty should be assigned to a junction with a connecting yield segment, as traffic typically isn't slowed down at these junctions. I believe that creating a new yield road type segment would improve routing accuracy. I've seen many URs that could have been prevented if such a segment already existed. A junction with signal lights should not be treated the same as a junction with a yield.

  16. Disallow all undriverable from being connected to roads to prevent routing errors

    Walking trails, boardwalks, stairwell (why does this exist) and railroads SHOULD NOT be permitted to be connected to a junction point on a highway, primary road, street, service road or ramp. By preventing the different types from being connected, it should prevent any routing errors from driveable segments onto non-driveable segments.

  17. Semaphore optimization of speed, driving time and fuel economy.

    To drive faster and keep fuel try to know the semaphore timing.
    In this case can advise drive slower or faster (if possible) to drive non-stop in the semaphore green corridor, when possible.

  18. Suggestion to generate more value and Products in Waze company.

    Hi Man,
    There are some GPS like Garmin that offer a traffic information by radio in real time, but the information that they provide is not so real time like the Wase information. I suggest you to sell this service to the final customers or to Garmin and another GPS companies. It will generate a new way to gain money at Waze company. Another interesting thing is to sell them the information of POIs and general informations like radar, accidents, etc with radio update. I'm sure that is a easy way to generate more value to your company. Best regards,…

  20. Ability to declare a suggested route bad

    Sometimes Waze suggests routes that are so bad as to be cringe worthy. It would be nice to to be able to report them for review.
