  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. Accident alert

    If something happened to a driver and it was an accident, Waze should detect the drastic "Stop" of the driver and after that if in th next 5-10 second no movements are done, should pop up a message asking the driver if he was in an accident, if the driver doesn't answer in 20-25 second, the "Alert" should appear on the map alerting the near user of Waze. What do you think?

  5. Count TURNS, not distance to the next turn

    when people give directions to each other, naturally they will say 'on the 2nd turn, take a right turn'.
    We are better at counting turns, than meters or miles...
    if Waze could do the same, instead of 'in 500m turn right', it would be great

  6. To mark street - Kids are playing

    Dear Waze Maps,

    My friends and I have come across a problem. This problem is kids playing on a community road/street. This presents a risk to kids , drivers , and property. For example , a kid who is playing on the road could get injured by a car hitting him/her. The car could also swerve and hit another car , injuring the driver and/or car. Another possibility is for the car to hit property like : signs , decorations , houses , or light posts.

    A person who is familiar with the road usually doesn't use Waze maps ,…

  8. Waze commercial vehicle option

    How easy would it be to have editors report when roads are or are not for commercial vehicles?
    Is there a reason why this hasn't been done already?

  10. Radar alert with visual speed information

    I suggest inserting the speed information into the radar notification. The notification now only reports that there is a radar a few meters ahead, not to mention speed. The radar speeds are all set up in the Waze maps, being information that can be easily extracted. The feature would certainly help many users, even eliminating the use of applications that perform this function. I also recommend that in settings there be options to "always be notified", "be notified only when above speed" or "never be notified." Allowing the user to decide on notifications.

  12. Red Light Camera Alert

    Ability to disable red light camera notifications. Alerts are rather annoying if you travel the same road on your daily commute.

  13. Keep Arnold Schwarzenegger Voice Forever.

    I've noticed voices disappear which I really loved (like Sleepy Hollow's Ichabod Crane). And I'm dreading the day Arnold disappears... I love the T-800 giving me directions "if I want to live." Is there any way we can keep the voice forever? Damn the licensing!!!!

  14. Matt Berry Voice Navigation

    Matt Berry Voice Navigation

    Esteemed actor, musician, performer, and artist, Matt Berry, would make a stupendous addition to the Waze program and community. With a confident, sultry, and seductive presence, Matt Berry would guide thousands of drivers to their destinations in the comfort of his soothing, tenor voice.

    We, the people, recognize that Matt Berry is busy with his numerous endeavors and that Waze has countless features they strive to add to an already vigorous navigation system. It is with this in mind that we humbly suggest a few lines pulled from his revered catalog of work along with new…

  18. Option to keep "battery saver" always on

    Waze has this new "battery saver" feature that dims the screen when there is a long way until the next turn/action. As I understand, currently this feature only kicks in when the battery level is low (<25%). Or you can manually turn it on for a current trip, but it revert to the default behaviour next time you start Waze.

    I suggest to add an option to keep it ALWAYS on. Because I would like to use it all the time... Even if the battery level is not low, I'd like to save it for the rest of the day.…

  19. Drive Summary

    At the end of a drive, give a quick overview of drive time, distance covered, amount of time spent in traffic. Bonus would be how much time it would have taken on an alternate route or "This is record time for your commute!" +6pts.

  20. Avoid cyclists accidents warning drivers about cyclists groups

    More and more cyclists are being run over. And Waze can help. Waze warns drivers about roadworks, accidents, traffic jams. why not do it with bicycles? Cyclists groups move, so they can't be pointed out by drivers
    They must point out themselves. Cyclists select "bike mode" on the app , Waze identifies them as a group and warns drivers.
