  1. 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…

  2. Offline navigation

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

  3. 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.

  4. Option that allows routing to be adjusted based on the height of your vehicle.

    An option (or paid upgrade) that allows routing to be adjusted based on the height of your vehicle. My RV is 11ft 6in tall and I need to avoid low bridges. This could also be useful to truck drivers. My Magellan Roadmaster for RV's has this option but I like the traffic reports better on Waze.

  6. 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?

  7. Wild animals warning signs alert

    In Nordic countries there are a lot of moose/reindeer warning signs along the road. This kind of alert could be very useful when you are driving, like speedometers, especially in bad weather conditions. A moose can weigh 700kg and a collision with one of them can be deadly. At the moment some navigators have this function.

  9. Enhance Police Reporting

    Posting a stationary waze identifier for a hiding police officer is helpful, but what if he is moving? And when looking at the identifier how do you know whether it was meaningful info if you don't know whether it was a squad car vs motorcycle or what type of police it was (highway patrol, police, unmarked vehicle)? People will waze anything so including this options as well as a "should wazers be on alert" associated with police would be helpful.

  12. Toll roads

    If user could use settings to set something like "use toll roads if it shortens the time on the road for at least XX minutes" or "use toll road if fuel economy if more then $XX". Waze gives us multiple routs from A to B, sometimes it is better to use toll road, sometimes it cuts only about 5-6 minutes from the trip (or less) - still not the reason to use toll road, too expensive for this outcome. But sometimes toll road is way better, so we don't want to forbid waze to suggest us toll-roads. I think you…

  13. 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.

  14. Tolls

    Rather than two options for tolls (avoid tolls or use tolls), I would like a 3rd option where I use tolls if it saves me a $ per unit of time (which I will have the flexibility to set). For example, I could select the 3rd option where I would take the toll road if it saves me > 1 minute for every 50 cents spent, and if it doesn't save me enough time then it will take me on the non toll road.

  15. Ability to users create their own "areas to avoid" / Possibilidade de usuários criarem suas próprias "áreas a evitar"

    (*descrição em português mais abaixo)

    Users should be able to set a perimeter by themselves to avoid some areas by personal interest or not - only in their apps and smartphones.
    Why? Some areas should be avoided if you don't want to pass by there for any personal reason.
    Its not about to create a "general exclusion area " but only users can add, edit and delete their own restrictions.

    Usuários deveriam ter a opção de criar suas próprias "zonas a evitar" em seus celulares e apos.
    E porquê? Porque você seria desviado de uma zona que não quer passar,…

  20. Red Forman GPS voice

    "Buckle up and let's cruise the vistas"
    "Turn left before I turn my foot right in your ass"
    "You made the wrong turn dumbass, are you on dope?"
    "You're going the wrong way dumbass, turn around before I put my foot in your ass"

    ANY classic Red Forman quotes would be fantastic!
