    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. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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. :)

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  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…

  10. Add school zones

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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).

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. TRAÇAR ROTA PERSONALIZADA

    Atualmente, o Waze oferece 2 opções de tipo de rota: "mais rápida" ou "mais curta". Seria interessante que o usuário pudesse fazer a "própria rota". Em "rotas" > "visão do mapa", gostaria de poder "arrastar a rota traçada para ajustá-la ao meu caminho preferido. Dessa forma, continuaria tendo os benefícios oferecidos pelo app (cálculo de tempo, intercorrências nas vias, trânsito), mas faria o caminho mais pessoal.

  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…
