  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Miscellaneous Suggestions - Reporting Items Not There and Hazards

    I would suggest having the ability to select reports and mark them as not there. For instance, oncoming traffic reports of speed traps or traffic that have since cleared up but not timed out.

    Also reporting a road hazard of disabled vehicle on the road. Currently there's vehicle on shoulder and you can report an accident on the road. We should be able to note a disabled vehicle blocking one lane.

    Lastly there should be the ability to note in an accident if it's affecting both sides (when EMS responds from both directions and closes lanes), when the road is…

  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. I would love to be able to create a route on my PC and then download it to Waze.

    I ride motorcycles and creating routes is a must have. I could then get rid of my Garmin and Mapsource.

  8. 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.

  9. Notify when an accident is reported on my current route how far away it is

    When an accident is reported on my current route, report how far I currently am from that accident so I can decide if I want to take an alternate route or if I am far enough away to decide if that accident has been cleared. Is there an option to report an accident has been cleared? That would be cool too . . .

  10. Wouldn't it be great to be able to exclude a freeway or particular road from your planned route?

    I already summed it up in the title, you kids are the pros.. But I would love to have more options for routes and options to avoid a freeway or major thoroughfare.

    Oh and just an irrelevant side note; that American woman's navigation voice, ug I can't listen to it. She sounds like your mean teacher from middle school- but the American guy is great.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  15. Faster Voice Navigation Cadence

    She speaks much slower than, say, Google Maps navigation. Speeding the prompts' delivery minimizes interruptions to other audio you might be listening to.

  16. Time-based Map Topology

    In Washington, DC specifically, and in other cities around the United States (and probably around the world), certain turns are illegal between 7:00-9:30 am or 4:00-6:30 pm. More challenging, Rock Creek Park - a major commuter route that is often utilized by Waze - allows southbound traffic only between 7:00-9:30 am on mon-fri, and northbound traffic only between 4:00-6:30 pm on mon-fri. Waze is unable to factor in these restrictions, and becomes of limited usability during these times. Its really frustrating for me, and my partner. Please, please, please fix this? I'm afraid one of our phones might go flying…

  17. Change color to the Arrow

    the actual Arrow is blue and when is on night the map change to blue color, I suggest Red...because when I using the Waze on the night is very difficult to identify the Arrow.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. Partner with Chrysler so Waze can be one of the apps displayed on the screen of the new Uconnect systems in 2013 Rams etc

    The new Uconnect system supports some mobile apps and I think Waze would be awesome to use on it instead of just merely hearing Waze through the speakers.
