  1. Map view

    Hi! I never use List view when checking the route, always Map view - would be possible to set in the app that it remembers the last choice? Savo

  2. Please fix the ridiculous feature that causes this app to momentarily pause, for reasons I still can't figure out, in the middle of a trip.

    Please fix the ridiculous feature that causes this app to momentarily pause, for reasons I still can't figure out, in the middle of a trip.

    Whether I pull over to go to the bathroom, or get gas, or go to a store en Rroute, it should remain on and keep functioning the entire time.

    I just drove 20 miles out of my way, because Waze paused, and when I got back on the road it was paused unbeknownst to me, and didn't tell me when I missed my exit.

    Take a note from Google Maps. While it can be annoying…

  3. No ridiculous short cuts

    I'd like to see a way to have a check-box type setting to turn "shortcuts" on/off. Sometimes I would swear that waze is just messing with me, taking me on zig-zag routes that are in no way faster than just going straight. I don't want to do this.

  4. Safe Routes

    I live in Southeast Michigan, but am not from there originally. I traveled to Detroit for work, and the event ran into the late evening. Though Detroit is beautiful, and improving in a lot of ways, there are still a lot of really unsafe areas.

    The Waze app took me down a bunch of side streets to get me to the interstate. It was terribly unsafe, and by the time I realized it was too late to turn around.

    Please. Please.. add safe routes!!!!!!!

  5. Add voice commentary at the end of your drive when the route you actually went was slower\quicker than what Waze originally presented.

    I want Waze to say, "Good job! You found a faster route! You saved 5 minutes. Other Wazers will thank you." or "The route you chose took you 5 minutes longer. Maybe you should listen to me next time?"

  7. Waze road works and and blocked roads

    Currently Waze seems to miss many blocked roads and road works (I encountered this problem again in the West End this morning). A bad example was Waze not knowing about a collapsed suspension bridge on an Italian motorway for at least a week while we were there not long ago, so we didn't know we had to take long diversions in the mountains. So could Waze have a 'road works/road closed' button in the system? And could your team assign some people to monitor the media for reports of major disasters etc.?

  8. BUG: Start of trajectory speed control is not in the correct language

    Situation: I live in the Netherlands, but both my iPhone and Waze are set to English (male voice in Waze). But when I approach a trajectory speed control, the warning is spoken in Dutch (female voice). I've seen several mentions of this when searching on Google, so I'm not the only one with this issue.

  9. Improvements

    Reduce the blue large size line a little bit (1/3). It will help the drivers to get the correct small street that is when the avenue ends and turns to 3 small entrances for example:right, left and straigth and they are very close to each other and the blue line hides the gray line. Even with information on top of app, in some moments the internet takes important seconds to update the information and due to this the driver takes the wrong way.
    In big cities like São Paulo it will be helpfull during daily routine routes.
    Thanks for your…

  12. Simple directions

    Have an optional exit/route only spoken feature... And instead of saying "stay right to 90 West, Marina Del Rey"... Just say "stay right for 90 West"

  13. Adding rfid for the expressway to suggest correct toll gate

    Maybe we can ask the user if they have rfid for specific expressway so that waze can suggest the correct toll gate. It will be good for newbie drivers that doesnt know that much on the current expressway

  17. GPS problem continues.

    I am having a lot of trouble using waze in Atlanta, where the program regularly has trouble fixing the GPS signal. It seems to know where it is, but then loses the ability to fix precisely where it is. It may or may not come back on again a little later. I am about to switch to a different gps program because Waze is not functional. I have an iPhone. Please fix it.

  18. work on the road with new speed limit

    3) each work on the road (construction site) always has a different speed limit (there is a speed reduction and ... often a speed camera nearby): the wazer must be able to easily enter the new speed limit.

  20. Having the option to disregard traffic when driving a bike as traffic has no impact on a bike

    Dear Team at Waze,

    I am a great supporter of your app. Thank you !

    Actually I drive my motorbike more than my car and I love using Waze in both cases.

    However, I suggest you set a function we can use when driving a bike because, as you may konw, in France, bikes are used to avoid traffic.
    Therefore, traffic has no incidence on time and should not have any incidence on the recomended itinerary.

    Or maybe simply put a button saying « disregard traffic jams »

    I can see many bikers in Paris using Waze, I am sure,…
