  1. Geotagged event triggers

    Allow the user to define an event such as playing one of your own sounds, display one of your own photos or play a music track at or near specific places. Example uses - get onto a fast stretch of road and your music changes, and changes back when you get into town again. Get a mile from a toll booth and a note appears telling you how much money to have ready. Drive near a grocer and your recording says "don't forget to get the eggs". Go past a tourist attraction and a recording tells you about it. You…

  2. choose my custom route!

    Have you ever thought that the driver does every day the same way to go to work or home, so he already has his favorite ways? Have you ever thought about leaving the driver predefine these paths and when to consult the routes have a new area for "Custom Routes" and showing the conditions of transit and time for those 3 chosen paths? I would feel more comfortable in knowing how long it would take if I had chosen that MY way specifically. Thanks!

  3. New weather hazard for high winds

    I use the Severn bridges which suffer as a result of high winds, so would be useful to be able to report this to other Waze users.

  4. Partner with Chrysler so Waze can be one of the apps displayed on the screen of the new Uconnect systems in 2013 Rams etc

    The new Uconnect system supports some mobile apps and I think Waze would be awesome to use on it instead of just merely hearing Waze through the speakers.

  5. "Do not disturb" - silence for safety

    There are apps that block or mute messages and calls that interrupt the driver. Though, One must be aware, remember and start these apps before every ride. I recommend Adding a "silence" option in waze setting. The option should allow to block calls,messages, FB etc. individually or all at once.

  6. 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.…

  9. ROUTE CALCULATION

    route calculation based on the type of vehicle. Cars, motorcycles, motor homes, buses, trucks.
    The calculation must take into account the size of the vehicle to avoid roads not suitable for the vehicle.
    To optimize the calculation of the arrival time, insert the traveling speed by type of road, urban, suburban, highway, etc.

  10. Avoid dangerous areas

    Around the globe, every place have some dangerous areas and will be great the option to avoid this in Waze.
    To get this information, users can report incidents and with the system automatically flag as dangerous. Another possibility in integrate Waze with public services like https://www.addressreport.com and public statistics.

  11. Timing of the Traffic Lights

    I think it would be a great benefit if you can us the data of every time a waze stops at a Traffic Light you should be able to figure out the timing for all the Traffic lights. Then some how be able to tell us when the next light is going to change so we can adjust are speed of course slowing down to time the lights and save fuel.

  12. Users can choose their vehicle type to route on segments with vehicle type restriction.

    ENG
    There are segments that are restricted to certain vehicle types. In these segments, Waze doesn't route even if the vehicle is allowed on the restriction.
    For example, if a segment is restricted to all vehicles except buses, Waze does not route this segment even if the user is driving a bus because Waze does not know what is the user's vehicle type, then never routes that segment.
    It would be very helpful if the user could choose its vehicle type, so Waze can route the segments where the restriction does not affect their vehicle type.
    Waze would continue not…

  15. Folders for favorites

    Change the favorite list to include folders and add an option to notify you if you are near that location. This would be useful for sales people or the service industry. You could select folder 1 and then select notify within a 2 mile radius and then when in that area it pops up. Would be so useful! I could just drive around and it would pop up and tell me when I was close to a lead!

  16. Street blacklist

    Unfortunately in some countries we face the reality of violence and sometimes the fastest route is not safe. So, my proposal is that we could have a "Street blacklist" in order to be able to add streets that we don't want to be in the route, preventing us to check all the route and try to find a new route every time or in a situation when we want a new route fast and during the route we notice that the navigation is going in the way that we don't want.

  17. Waze needs the option for users to "create a route" if they want to. Also record a destination and title it upon arrival

    I would greatly like to see the option to "creat a route". I have a few destinations that every time I drive there waze takes me on a horrible route and still wont auto learn my routes. When going home waze takes me to the correct address but I cannot park on the street in front of my house. I have to turn on the street before and go around to the back where my driveway is. It should also get the option for when you arrive at a certain destination, you can save and title it as well a…

  19. The Golden Girls as voice options

    As a fan of classic sitcoms, "The Golden Girls" is one of my favorites. I think it would be awesone to have Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur), Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan), Rose Nylund (Betty White) and Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty) as navigaton voice options.

  20. Add a weather radar layer you can turn on and off

    Add a weather radar layer you can turn on and off. Instead of having to switch to another app while driving.
