  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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....

  5. 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

  8. 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.

  9. Detour capability

    I would like for the ability to determine a detour to the current route. For example, if the highway you are on is blocked, slow or closed due to an accident, you can push a detour option/button and select the distance of the detour (1/2 mile, 1 mile, 2 miles, 5 miles, 10 miles...) or maybe the system can suggest the detour length based on what it knows of the traffic conditions ahead. Once your determined detour distance is exhausted, you are routed back to your original route. Many GPS Nav systems today have this capability/feature and is very useful.…

  10. Map scale indicator

    Have you ever wondered how many miles long that traffic jam is up ahead? I sure have, but Waze gives no indication of distances on a map. How about one of the little bars that indicates the scale of the current map view - you know 1 inch equals a mile, etc.

  12. Add reverse route option.

    Please add a reverse route option. I should be able to save my starting location, then add a stop and do round trip.

  13. Improve road detection while navigating

    When navigating along roads that have service/access roads, the navigation will want to enter the freeway/highway/tollway/etc. If the driver stays on the access road or exits onto the access road, Waze does not detect that and keeps the location locked to the planned route. If Waze wants to route you onto a freeway/highway/tollway/etc. and you do not take the on-ramp, the app locks onto the planned route and thinks you are on the highway.

    It would be nice if, when there are multiple parallel roads, that the app reduces the distance over which it will snap to a road. Another…

  14. 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.

  15. To be able to fix a destination by a button " Target GPS " when we arrive at destination?

    It would be interesting to be able to fix a destination by a button " Target GPS " when we arrive at the destination with WAZE. In this manner, we could very precisely memorize a point of arrival in the favourites.

    What do you think about it?

  18. Access to view live traffic cameras where available publicly on the internet like around Pittsburgh, PA..

    In many cities there are traffic cameras posted on major routes. These are available over the internet and mobile phones so drivers can see live feeds. It would be great if Waze showed those along routes or on the maps so drivers can quickly view current conditions.

    We should also be able to add these to the maps through the editor and link to the published URLs of the cameras.

  19. Show all villages in Israel "behind the green line"

    In Israel, I drive a lot in the area that has been marked a "behind the green line". All roads are marked well in this area, and so are Jewish settlements are indicated well on the map. I would like to have the names of the Arab villages that I pass along the road mentioned on the map. That helps for orientation purposes.

  20. No service for xxx miles.

    When entering a rural road or roads that cross in the middle of nowhere, typically you will see a sign that says, "No services for 20 miles" It would be cool if waze would warn you the same, or if you enter that road from another spot down the way, waze could say " No service for 18 miles to the right" I suppose in map editor you could highlight a section of road where no services exist for long distances and tag it as a no services road.
