  1. (Re)-Add a Flemish Voice

    Apparently Google has removed Ellen (Flemish) voice because she was previously provided through Nuance. Google currently doesn't own/have a Flemish voice. Since Waze is owned by google this means we currently don't have a Flemish voice. So I ask if you guys could please ask for our flemish voice back. She is really missed :( FLEMISH ≠ DUTCH

  5. Miles and Yards

    Option to show and speak Miles & Yards instead of Miles & Feet. Feet is a confusing unit to use while driving!

  6. Traffic lights

    Add traffic lights where they belong as well as stop signs.

    Sometimes it is a little difficult to look at how many feet I have left in order to turn, so knowing which light I have to turn at makes it a little bit easier but waze does not have that option they only have red camera lights. I think it would also be a good idea to let wazers know where there is a stop sign because sometimes a tree could be hiding it and someone could take it and cause an accident

  7. Account for (sporting, concert) events along the route when calculating ETA for planned drives

    If you need to be somewhere at a certain time, but there is a sporting event along the way, there will be a lot of event traffic just before & just after the event. Waze could account for this traffic when calculating a planned drive. Then, based on historic data for such an event, Waze could either plan a route that avoids the traffic or it could show the ETA so you could drive past the venue during the event. Alternatively, you could know how early before or how late after the event you should leave to avoid the huge…

  8. Driving mode

    Waze need a "Driving mode" switch within settings. I'm a Waze user, I use Waze from my car radio 7.5" screen and the only difference is more space for map view. By "Driving mode" is bigger buttons, bigger texts on street names and notifications. While driving you should not need to force reading or hitting a button... It's just an idea that I'm sure will improve a lot Waze usability while driving.

  11. Where Am I Button. Instantly gives GPS address and local address. easily ported for transmittal into text, email or messenger messages.

    "Where Am I Button." Instantly gives GPS address and nearest local address.Drop a marker. Save that marker location as a-z designation, Easily ported for transmittal into text, email or messenger messages. Be able to "drop" a marker and then return to it at anytime by selecting it from an a-z designated list of markers. Be able to identify a list of these markers and then have WAZE find the shortest path between all the selected markers. This would help someone who has a list of clients and on any given day has to make deliveries to say 12 of them.…

  12. ALERT

    Speed Alert sound more volume, different type of speed alarm sounds alerting everytime over the speed limit. A switch to turn warning alarms off and on. SOUND is important when driving because all time the driver will be focusing on the street and not the screen, all alert sounds should have high volume, viz. for speed limit, etc.. should be more sharp, this makes Waze different from other gps navigation sys. and make driving safer. (sound could also say 'to slow down")

  13. Regular commute notification

    Like most of people, I have a regular work schedule, my commute to work is always the same time and route. I do not have to check my navigation app every morning, but when something unusual happens on my route, I think I should be notified.

    Most of us are using navigation apps when traveling, or going somewhere for the first time. But most of our driving time is commuting to work. We should be able to program our commuting times and routes in these apps for whatever schedule we have. If we are driving fide days a week from…

  14. Botão de Alerta de Burado Mais Fácil

    Acredito que o Envio de Alerta "Buraco" seja o mais usado pelos wazer. A frequência de uso no dia é muito alta; sugiro que o Botão "Buraco" tenha um acesso mais rápido, ou seja, ao clicar-se no botão amarelo para enviar um alerta, ele já apareça na primeira página aonde estão: Trânsito, Polícia, Acidente, Perigo...; apareceria também o botão "BURACO". Atualmente é preciso: Botão de Envio de Alerta, Perigo, Em Rota, Buraco. (isso leva tempo, e tira muito a atenção do motorista nesse procedimento).

  16. Use accelerometers and gyroscopes to suppliment GPS data

    Use accelerometers and gyroscopes to increase accuracy of location with with virtually no power increase. It would also allow navigation through tunnels and such when GPS location is lost. It would also prevent erroneous movement while stopped at a traffic light. There are companies testing this type of technology. One that I have been following but have no financial interest in is navisens.com There are videos from navisens at https://www.youtube.com/user/navisens

  18. Speedometer Contrast Issue

    In reference to speedometer contrast issue during daytime. Black and Red too similar for daytime glare. At night it is sufficient, perhaps have a daytime contrast theme separate from night-time.

  20. Rotas de risco

    Bom dia! Sou usuária deste maravilhoso aplicativo há algum tempo e gostaria de parabenizá-los pela criação. Porém, algumas vezes já ocorreu da rota selecionada me enviar para dentro de favelas e áreas de risco sem nenhum alerta prévio sobre isso!Já passei por situação bastante perigosa numa violenta favela próxima de BH, um atalho indicado pelo Waze. Solicito que integrem com as informações de geoprocessamento de áreas de risco para evitar situações como a de Niterói, com a morte de uma mulher.
    Grata pela atenção e certa de que cuidarão deste importante detalhe.
