  2. Option to disable route recalculating alert. That nerve wracking chirp is driving me crazy!

    Whoever approved that grating & obnoxious squawking route recalculation alarm should be fired. I drive a cab and even my customers cringe when they hear it and say "what's that awful noise". PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET US TURN IT OFF! Alerts only should mean alerts only. Hearing that damn noise screech and grate 5 times when I'm driving through a parking lot is maddening!

  3. Differentiate "dirt road" of "4x4 trail".

    "Dirt road / 4x4 trail" should be called "4x4 trail" only, and keep the same navigation capabilities as now, only to be allocated as such the badly damaged roads that only 4x4 vehicles are able to travel it.
    In the "street category" should be added a new type of segment called "dirt road", which would be passable streets for any vehicle but their ability to circulate them may vary due to various external factors such as weather. Because of this, they should suffer some level of penalty in the routing, and allows the "avoid dirt roads" in the application for…

  4. Recent Changes resulted in worse routes

    I commute to NYC daily through crazy greater NYC traffic and Waze saved me time by always great routes. Whatever changes have been implemented over the last few months have completely ruined the route selection, or criteria used to determine the routes. They are often wrong, sending me far out of my way. But when I run Apple Maps in parallel with WAZE to test these routes, they are always incorrect and take longer. The product was perfect and made me switch from MAPS. Now performance is so bad I need to switch back to MAPS in order not to…

  5. Add the option to Refresh the Routes offered when in view, or Auto-Refresh them

    A few years ago I've asked for a quick button for showing alternative routes, which you've implemented, and for that I'm grateful.
    This time I want to ask that the list of Routes be continuously updated, either automatically, or with a "Refresh" button at the top.
    Most of the time when I drive to work I know the routes and don't need to look at the map, so I would like just the routes page to open - but it doesn't refresh and I need to keep going out of it and back into it to see the updates. It…

  7. click on the list of directions and be taken to the map

    There are many occasion in which I use Waze to find routes to places I don't know. Also, there are occasions in whch waze suggests alterrnative routes to escape traffic.
    There are many times that Waze directs me to streets and places that I have never been through. When I look at the complete list of directions, many times the list contains street names that are actually completely meaningless to me, as I just don't know them. It would be nice if a a feature could be added that allows me to click on a particular item of the list…

  8. Add checkbox to opt for dirty road/toll before chosing a destination.

    After selection the destination, we should be able to select if we want to take toll roads or dirty roads. It will be very helpfull. Its a pain changing it in the menu 3/4 times a day. or I will never know the real best route for me!!!

  9. audio announcement

    sometimes I drive for a long time on a highway. all that time there is no sound from waze (I don't use the map but only listen to the audio guide). all that itme I don't know if I'm still connected or was disconnected by unforseen net problem. I'm always afraid I'll miss the exit. please enter an audio announcement from time to time (lets say 15 minutes) that I'm still on the right way

  11. Redundant steps

    App would be easier to use if you didn't have to annoyingly hit the word "go" more than once for my trip to start navigating.
    Hitting "Go" should not come with an "are you sure" option. So redundant in a bad way.

  12. Add a random voice option to keep things interesting on long trips

    On long trips, the same voice and sayings get old pretty quick. By adding a random voice option, it would be fun to hear what the next voice and saying is each time

  13. Add route style 'safe and simple' & 'eco-drive'

    Selecting 'safe and simple' route will navigate you with safe wide roads without to many small cuves and turns. It might nog be the fastest of shortest but will avoid danger. Selecting 'eco-drive' caculates the most environmental friendly route and minimizes fuel consumption and pollution, just add you car and engine type in the settings menu and Waze will calculate your eco-ride.

  14. Add a 'record my route' button, you can then forward your ideal route to another wazer

    We all have our preferred routes, (example) it is so nice to give away your country adventure route to a friend and share the best views, rides and sceneries to the perfect holiday location. Just press the 'record' button and afterwards 'save route' and 'share route'.

  17. While talking in the car I often miss the prompt. You should have a warning signal prior to the prompt so it isn't missed.

    A beep or some sort of signal prior to the prompt would alert you to the upcoming prompt.

  18. Route color change after we past it

    As we all know, from route planning to until we get to the target, the track color is the same (purple by default).
    The problem is that the section we past and the section we are going to is in the same color.
    Since the software can identify the direction of motion, I suggest that every section of the planned route that we passed will return to normal color of the map or will fade to make a Separation from the section which you are traveling to.
    If you navigate while watching briefly on the map from time to time,…

  20. Warning window not strategically placed

    Currently, the warning window (police, hazard, etc.) pop-up on the top right corner of the screen. It takes quite a big portion of the screen, blocking the ahead map. For example, when it pops-up near a complex intersection, I can't see which right turn to take because it's blocked by the (less important) warning window.

    I think this is very important issue to be addressed. The warning window can be placed on the bottom left or right in form of a thin rectangle, even transparent one would suffice.
