  1. Final destination announcement/display.

    When using a favorite or getting an address from a calendar event, it is often difficult to know exactly where the destination is. without having the full address displayed upon arrival. Rather than saying "You have arrived at your destination," it would be better to say "You have arrived at 3478 NW XX st.

  2. 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.

  3. Differentiate "dirt road" of "4x4 trail".

    "Dirt road / 4x4 trail" should be called "4x4 trail" only, and keep the same navigation capabilities as now, only to be allocated as such the badly damaged roads that only 4x4 vehicles are able to travel it.
    In the "street category" should be added a new type of segment called "dirt road", which would be passable streets for any vehicle but their ability to circulate them may vary due to various external factors such as weather. Because of this, they should suffer some level of penalty in the routing, and allows the "avoid dirt roads" in the application for…

  4. 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.

  6. A Known Jamaican Guided Voice on Waze - In Support of a non profit, KiDz HuB Media

    Currently Waze has a number of voices for guided voice. However, there is no Jamaican Voice, though lots of Caribbean nationals living in the USA and Canada use Waze as a means to get around. I think i would be really cool to have a reggae artist like a Shaggy, Tessanne Chin, or Machel Montano as an option for guided voices. This could be a great way for Waze to also support or bring awareness to a non profit that one of these entertainers support/endorse.

    Our non for profit KiDz HuB Media Network's partnership with Estella's Brilliant Bus will serves…

  8. Automate road closure Report

    It is difficult to report road closures in real time - especially on a freeway - because of the approach speed and unexpected driving adjustment. If Waze inquired why I missed a turn/off-on ramp it would be helpful. This is similar to when Waze asks "you slowed down - are you in traffic?" If Waze notices that I missed a turn/off-on ramp it should ask "you missed a turn- was there a road closure ?" This way I can report later ( give me 60 secs) when safe. If I just missed the turn because I was distracted or chose…

  10. Taxi Features / Funcionalidades para taxis

    Develop options for taxi navigation such as:
    - Routes that have exclusive lanes of taxi use;
    - Proposed destination by proximity that has a shorter travel time for the passenger to end their route by walking. For example, if the navigation can determine that a point of up to 300 meters (parameter) of the destination will significantly reduce the travel time, this can be given as an option to the passenger.

    - Rotas que possuem faixas exclusivas de uso de taxi;
    - Proposta de destino por proximidade que tenha um tempo de percurso…

  12. 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).

  13. The new “road shield” symbol reduces text legibility

    New “road shield” symbol means the font size is reduced making it harder to read whilst driving. I’m a UK user. The road number is now shown in a box with a smaller font than it was previously. Please revert back to the previous, larger font size

  14. Expire events option

    Give a general or category specific option to delete/expire events. e.g. most crashes/accidents are cleared in 30 minutes or less, yet the event lingers in Waze for 2 hours or more. So let the user chose how old an event will be displayed.

  16. Seria muito interessante que os alarmes de radar indicassem a velocidade máxima permitida no trecho

    É muito bom o alarme do Waze sobre radares de velocidade, porém a ausência da informação da velocidade máxima permitida no trecho é um fator muito importante que deveria ser exibido junto com o alarme

  17. Announcements depending on speed

    I recommend that Waze adjust the "trigger distance" for pre-alerts when traveling quickly.

    For example, currently Waze pre-alerts "In one-tenth of a mile ..." regardless of speed.

    If you are driving 60 MPH, you cover the one-tenth of a mile in a mere 6-seconds ... by that time, Waze is already alerting you (AGAIN) that it's time to make the turn.

    I'm all for voice alerts ... but when the app gabs for 10-seconds straight because of back-to-back announcements, eh....

  19. 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…

  20. Gravel Road Checkbox in Map Editor

    An option similar to the Toll Road checkbox that would allow a street segment that's a Gravel Road to be checked off as such and would allow for more precise client preferences to avoid both dirt and gravel or just dirt roads. Many roads gravel roads are well maintained and perfectly suitable for travel, but shouldn't be marked as a Dirt Road/4x4 Trail.
