    Amber Nash, the voice of Pam on Archer FX, is gung-ho about this idea! All we need now is for Waze to make it happen!

  2. Bicycle navigation and bike routes for waze!!! Please!!

    Can you please add bicycle routes to the app and ways to avoid roads that go over a certain speed limit? The option to set your vehicle as a bicycle and find routes like that avoid high speed roads and roads that dont allow bikes conbined with all of the other great functions of the app will be fantastic...

    But since you don't have the feature so many bicyclists won't get to navigate with your app and get the same benefits that car drivers have... I really need a navigator for bikers that shows the speed limits of the roads…

  4. identificação para carro ou caminhão

    Gostaria de sugerir a disponibilidade de escolher a utilização de carro de pequeno porte e carro de grande porte ( caminhão por exemplo).
    Possuo um caminhão e já entrei em ruas que só passam carros pequenos
    Tive problemas na hora de sair.
    vocês poderiam utilizar rotas de ônibus para os caminhões. já na pagina inicial : você esta dirigindo Carro ou caminhão.
    Obrigado.

  6. 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.

  7. 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).

  9. 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. :)

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Commute Mode

    I would love to be able to set up a commute with stops. Maybe ask a few questions like:

    How many stops do you have on your commute (kid drop off, passenger pick up for carpooling, coffee)?

    Does your destination ever change? Be able to have different commute profiles.

    Then ask how long you are at each stop normally.

    If it is the normal route, then it will only warn you of traffic slows or hazards.

    Bonus- If I am running late, set up someone to notify, husband or daycare provider ect.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Jeune conducteur france

    Je suggère que Waze propose une option "Jeune conducteur" en France. Mon idée serait qu'en activant cette option les limites de vitesses affichées soit celles pour ceux qui sont jeune permis, par exemple une route a 90km/h Waze affiche limité à 80, une autoroute à 130 l'application nous affiche de ne pas dépasser les 110 etc.. Vous avez compris le système. Car je pense qu'un jeune qui vient d'avoir son permis peut être induit en erreur de voir que Waze lui dit qu'il peut rouler à 130 alors que selon le code la route il ne peut dépasser les 110km/h.

  17. Minimize left turns across traffic

    While Waze does save me usually, it tends to route me through very difficult unprotected left turns during rush hour which I cannot make or make my route feel unsafe. I wouldn't usually do this but since I am generally unfamiliar with the route I end up in a situation where I have to make this turn.

  18. RV Option

    Please add an option (it could even be a paid add-on) that allows owners of Recreational Vehicles (RV's) to enter in their vehicle height, width and weight to avoid low bridges and tight lanes. May GPS' have this option, but Waze has better routing and traffic reports than they do. You could even make two options, one for RVs and aother for large trucks

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
