  1. Correct mileage designation.

    Please change the designation 'oh point six miles' to the correct 'zero point six miles'. As a math teacher, this 'drives' me crazy.

  3. 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,…

  4. Add option to Avoid Tunnels

    For various reasons drivers may wish to avoid tunnels when navigating. This should be an option along side with Avoid Highways and Avoid Toll Roads.

  5. 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.

  7. iPod assess while navigating

    waze is an excellent navigation app. I waze is a great navigation app. I even think its better than google maps and motion gpx. The only feature that it is missing is access to your iPod on the iPhone while navigating, like motion gpx has . Please add this feature on.

    Please consider adding the number of drivers to the traffic speed display. The greater number of drivers the greater the confidence in the speed displayed. Conversely if a speed along a corridor is based on only a few drivers the accuracy is questionable.

  10. 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.

  11. New weather hazard for high winds

    I use the Severn bridges which suffer as a result of high winds, so would be useful to be able to report this to other Waze users.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Announcements depending on speed

    I recommend that Waze adjust the "trigger distance" for pre-alerts when traveling quickly.

    For example, currently Waze pre-alerts "In one-tenth of a mile ..." regardless of speed.

    If you are driving 60 MPH, you cover the one-tenth of a mile in a mere 6-seconds ... by that time, Waze is already alerting you (AGAIN) that it's time to make the turn.

    I'm all for voice alerts ... but when the app gabs for 10-seconds straight because of back-to-back announcements, eh....

  16. Abbreviations

    use abbreviations for hazzards B (breakdown recovery), T (Tire Debris) R (Road works) F (Fog) etc
    Also for Police Alert, in MA police are required for road works so it is not a speed trap

  19. choose navigation type on navigation screen and on route picker

    To switch between Shortest or Fastest you have to go into settings->navigation->type and choose shortest or fastest. I often switch between these modes when picking my route so it would make sense to have that option available in the same screen as where the routes are chosen AND on the "navigate to" screen.

  20. Gravel Road Checkbox in Map Editor

    An option similar to the Toll Road checkbox that would allow a street segment that's a Gravel Road to be checked off as such and would allow for more precise client preferences to avoid both dirt and gravel or just dirt roads. Many roads gravel roads are well maintained and perfectly suitable for travel, but shouldn't be marked as a Dirt Road/4x4 Trail.
