  1. Make the Alert Button and Speed Display floating

    English: Make the Alert Button and Speed Display floating, so the driver can position them on the screen in order to be more visible regardless of the position of the cell phone on the panel.

    Portugues: Fazer o Botão de Alerta e o Mostrador de velocidade flutuantes, assim o motorista pode posiciona-los na tela de forma a ser mais visivel independente da posição do telefone celular no painel.

  3. Waze RoadTrip- A New Option for Wazers

    You will likely want to hear an idea that will expand your audience and retain your current customer base.

    Recently, I embarked on an excursion from Orlando, FL to Charleston, SC. It’s a fairly short road trip, but within those 6 hours, I wondered to myself how great it would be to see more than just the highway in front of me and the trees that lined the road. I quickly grew exhausted from seeing the same paved road, white lines, and billboard signs over and over again.

    I turned to my boyfriend with two hours left on our trip…

  5. - Include “Avoid hazardous area” as route options.

    We have seen many drivers get into slum areas that are really dangerous, with many episodes of people getting killed when entering on those areas in Rio de Janeiro, for example. I experienced this on other cities in Brazil and, sometimes, I really avoid using Waze because of this.

  6. Function to avoid police checkpoints, speed cameras and every kind of number plate controls

    There are functions to avoid toll roads and highways, but there is not a function to navigate avoiding streets where electronic controls and police checkpoints are both situated and reported.

    It will be great if a feature like this was added. I would pay to have it.

  7. 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…

  8. Samuel L. Jackson

    Use Samuel L. Jackson's voice for navigation. Give directions in the same voice he used in the audio book "Go the F#*! to Sleep" by Adam Mansbach. Optional swearing of course.

  9. Add "avoid border crossings" setting, just like avoid toll roads or ferries.

    Navigating from New York to Detroit, there's a route that crosses through Canada. I didn't bring my passport and wish to avoid this, but if I manually force another route, I might miss out on traffic-responsive optimizations. It should be possible to avoid border crossings just like any other route preference.

  10. Add a "Remember this Route" feature. WAZE should allow me to press a button to begin a route and another button to end the route.

    Add a "Remember this Route" feature. WAZE should allow me to press a button to begin a route and another button to end the route. I should be able to save this route as a favorite.
    I don't want Waze to try to optimize my route or change my route in any way.

  11. Add option to Avoid Tunnels

    For various reasons drivers may wish to avoid tunnels when navigating. This should be an option along side with Avoid Highways and Avoid Toll Roads.

  13. Map scale indicator

    Have you ever wondered how many miles long that traffic jam is up ahead? I sure have, but Waze gives no indication of distances on a map. How about one of the little bars that indicates the scale of the current map view - you know 1 inch equals a mile, etc.

  16. 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.…

  17. Low emission zones avoiding

    The same principle as avoiding toll roads.
    It is enjoying when Waze plans the way through the London (or any other city with low emission zone) and then you find out you have to drive back and find your way around the zone without any assistance as Waze still thinks you can go through the zone.

  18. Follow friend.

    Sometimes share one trip more cars (users). For example Business trip or holiday etc. it means two or more cars with the same destination. One of them knows WHERE to go (where is destination) and the others follow him. One car is the leader. In this case could be very useful to add feature called "Follow friend". In MENU where are Friends, add this feature (click on name of leading user and choose "Follow friend") and when the leading user accepts the request, he becomes as a "Moving destination" for user (users) who asked him. The other use of this…

  19. ÁREA DE RISCO E VIOLÊNCIA - BRASIL

    Hoje conhecidamente no Brasil existe inúmeros casos de problemas de uso do GPS que levam as pessoas para área de risco, com violência, vamos criar um novo alerta para estas regiões, e colocar no GPS Waze a opção para evitar as áreas com esta marcação, da mesmo forma feita para rua sem pavimentação, exemplo.

  20. I want to report hazards & closures even after i drove past it. like hold my finger on a location and report there.

    I like to report things but by the time i open my waze app, i already drove a few blocks. And waze doesn't let me report anything 3 blocks back. Why can't I click on the map and pick the exact location?
