  1. Default config for the map : 1/ 2D, 2/ Always pointing north, 3/ Without so much info clustering the map.

    I know > 20 people who use Waze because it's great, but have the same complaint: The map is bad. I recently discovered this can be change, but no one seems to know. So I suggest making it easier to access those settings, or simply making them default:

    1/ 2D
    2/ Always pointing north
    3/ Without so much info clustering the map. Sometimes we don't know where to turn because we see so many "Wazer icon bubles" that hide the roads.

  2. Street name box display change

    Hi, I live in Sao Paulo and sometimes driving here, which has a very complex street network, the street name box (in purple) prevents you from seeing properly which path to take and sometimes you end up taking the wrong exit. Sometimes the street name box is exactly ahead of your car in the map, and over the path you have to take, specially when you have multiple street paths deriving from on single avenue.

  3. Better view on the map of global the path

    Currently the map does not show well the end-to-end path. It is difficult to see where you will go through.

  4. You are navigating users to a dead end road for Wawayanda State Park.

    You are routing people to my driveway as the entrance to Wawayanda State Park. It is not. Call the Park and they will verify it is not an entrance nor will ever be. Call the State they too will verify this. My address is 24 Oak St, Highland Lakes, NJ 07422. It is not the entrance to the park. Please Stop it

  5. Set final the destiny in behalf of another user who is driving

    My wife was driving and she could not change the place where I would like to meet her. My suggestion is to allow people within agenda set the final destiny in behalf of the user who is unable to change the destiny.

  7. Off road GPS

    Hi

    Waze is very very good! Great GPS!

    To be perfect, it should allow saving the GPS track and open them for navigation offroad, like OruxMaps.

    Hope it would be possible...

  10. Get a different sound when you enter/leave a dangerous area

    Now the sound is the same when you enter/leave such an area, so if you don't remember you have to look at your screen to check. With a different sound, no more look necessary ! It is rather easy for programming team : you don't have to write or buy another music, only play it once when going in and twice when going out !

  12. Share other modes of transportation

    I would like to share my train ride with my friends so they know when to pick me up. It would also be nice to be able to comment or talk to other folks in the train via waze.

  14. Ignore Wifi based location info

    Please Ignore Wifi based location, and only use physical GPS data.
    It happens when GPS signal lost, than inaccurate Wifi based location info provides location info and it is useless, as there are 3 street in the same wifi range.

  15. You need to make it possible to route to intersections by naming each cross street and the city

    I wasted an entire day and drove 9 hours to nowhere because waze showed an address in Daily City Ca as if it was in San Francisco. I stopped for gas when I pulled up waze and typed in the address. It showed up along with many entirely inappropriate ones from other states etc. I did not realize that I would have had to scroll down past all of the useless ones to find the address that I needed. The first address looked right and I was in a bad spot to be playing with my phone plus I needed…

  16. Warning when entering a highway without other wazers

    I think it would be helpful if Waze would generate a warning when you enter a highway on which no wazer passed in the last 1-2 hours. Otherwise you count on the fact that if there is any Police on that highway you would receive a warning from Waze but since no wazer passed through that area lately you have actually no info related to that road (and you are not aware of that).
    Such a warning would force you to drive more careful and avoid speed tickets.

  17. More intelligent searching by company name

    I love Waze, but there are a few things with search that are not as useful as they could be.
    f I search for a name of a company with multiple locations (Walgreens, MacDonald's, etc.) the listings should be by distance, with closest first. It always seems to show corporate HQ, then random locations. For companies with many locations, this means starting a new search.

  18. Route color coding.

    In navigation programs currently route to go is shown in single colour.
    It can be colour coded to show descent and ascent, with intensity of colour changing according to steepness.
    That would decrease risks when overtaking, as descents are hard to spot, and another car can be hiding there.
    Current maps can be updated, when there are changes in altitude not matching ones known in app. No manual work would be needed; averages of reporting can be used.

  19. שלום,

    שלום,
    1. כשבוחרים כנקודת יעד את מוזיאון ישראל בירושלים
    האפליקציה מוליכה לכביש אחורי לגמרי המיועד לכניסת העובדים של המוזיאון,
    השומר במקום מסביר כיצד להגיע לכניסה הראשית של המוזיאון.

    1. ההתראה על פניה ימינה (או שמאלה...) באה קרוב מדי לצומת עצמה (כ-2 מטר
      ממנה) ולעתים כבר מאוחר מדי והמכונית חולפת על הצומת.
      אם אפשר להתריע לפחות כ-10 מטר לפני הצומת זה היה מצוין

    2. הפרסומות הנוכחיות ממש מפריעות לניווט, אין עליהן את הסימן X להסרה,
      מספר פעמים, כשלחצנו בניסיון להזיז אותן, זה גדל כמעט על כל המסך,
      הסתיר לנו את המפה ועד שהן נעלמו חלפנו על פני צומת שהיינו צריכים לפנות

      בה...

    תודה…

    I would like a quick procedure (two-fingrer-tap) that will make Waze speak the current distance till next
    move, e.g. "In 800 meters, turn left on High Street".
    If you are busy when it tells you first time, or if you forgot, this would be helpful not needing take up the phone and read in the upper corner.
