  2. Rodízio de veículos São Paulo

    Na cidade de São Paulo existe rodízio de veículos pelo numero final da placa. Gostaria de sugerir uma alteração que quando o usuário digitasse algum endereço pertencente à área de restrição ou que tivesse que cruzar tal área, que fosse alertado sobre o final da placa que está impedido de circular e o horário. Seria interessante também se permitisse programar a saída para entrar e sair da área restrita no horário em que não sofresse multa, talvez com algum alerta.

  3. Adding on map of charging stations for electric or plug-in vehicles, and the ability to plan a route using them.

    It provides the ability to find a charging point for electric or plug-in vehicles, which is similar to a gas station for classic cars.
     It provides the ability to achieve a route that takes into account these charging points.

  4. Choose Max Travel Speed

    I own a classic VW, and my maximum speed is 50mph, I love using Waze but there is no current map or navigation app that will consider a maximum speed for classic vehicles and caravans, I would love to be able to change my max speed for a planned journey.

    I cannot imagine this would be too hard to implement and would be very helpful to many people.

  5. Electric vehicle range/route planning options!

    Tell me a route to my destination that hops between max range distances for my all-electric vehicle! I can type in my starting range and Waze can do the rest! Also specify charging points with a radius that equals my current charge range? Us EV owners don’t care about gas prices etc. Plus we’d like a little vehicle logo that matches ... a lightning bolt perhaps! ⚡️

  6. School zones

    I'd like to see active school zones on my map so I could avoid them. I consider the kiddies to be hazards. :)

  8. Chargers for electric cars on the map

    I've been using this app for years now and it is the best GPS app ever. I recently bought an electric car and it would be so great if chargers could be added on the map as for the gas stations.

  9. height and width limits

    A way of warning other waze users of heights of bridges or width of restrictions as here in the UK we have so many tiny roads. I've been sent towards so many 6ft 6inch width restrictions and when your driving a lorry this is not a good thing, don't get me wrong I think Waze is excellent but I'm getting frustrated that it assumes I'm in a car all the time. So a facility to input the correct size manually (because they all differ) would help so many. Best to remember commercial drivers are the drivers that travel around the…

    once it has been reported, start & end time, to have the map turn it on automatically with the speed of traffic (usually 15mph)

  16. 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.

  17. Have a manual option to modify route of travel

    WAZE gives a route for fastest or shortest trip which is great in most cases . But could we give user's the option to take a less congested or more scenic route as a user's choice by allowing changes to the route instructions or on the map like Google maps with a drag and drop option.OR better yet allow import of Google saved maps into WAZE.

  18. Offline navigation

    So we can use the app while driving through areas without a data signal AND to save battery life on the device.

  19. S-Turn penalties

    In case of traffic even light, some ways become impossible to cross, mainly ave. with more than 3 or 4 lanes.
    Proposal to include a S-Turn routing penalties in case of traffic in the crossing street.
    This will avoid routing in ways with less than 200m (safe length for lane change is S-Turn even with traffic).

  20. Lane detection

    I notice that there are large fluctuations in the traffic in certain lanes at certain places in certain times of day, days of week etc. If waze knew what lane you are in you could use that information to make recommendations as to the best lane for the moment. If you just add a multi lane attribute on a road segment when you are driving on that segment (if you have the option enabled) you would get a prompt to input what lane you are now in, after which waze could use the map, speed and accelerometer data to detect…
