  1. Tell us WHY Waze can't find a route

    Today I was in Virginia and starting a drive to Northampton, MA. Waze told me that it couldn't find a route. In fact, it couldn't find a route to Boston, or New Haven, or anywhere else north of NY, NY. (It can find a route to NY, NY). I'd like to know why. I tried multiple phones.

    When things like this happens, Waze should say WHY it can't find a route.

  2. Speed limit customization

    Be able to customize the layout for speed shown
    IE only showing speed limit, speed limit and actual speed.
    Be able to show speed limit all the time or just when the limit changes.
    As for me I want to show the speed limit all the time without actual speed.
    Would be nice to have an inbuilt function for alerting if the current speed limit is achieved, this function could have an tolerance of a user defined speed of 5,10,15,20,25,30 km/h before the warning comes.

  3. Make changes to the suggested route by touching the route I want on the map.

    Sometimes I want to make a specific change to the route by touching the map. For example; if I touch and hold a place on the map to signal that I want to go via this road instead of the suggested road, but still remain within the general route chosen.

  4. I would love to be able to create a route on my PC and then download it to Waze.

    I ride motorcycles and creating routes is a must have. I could then get rid of my Garmin and Mapsource.

  5. An option to switch on the screen a second map view showing the route with zoom out

    It could be a good idea to have a switch on/off option of a second map view (in one corner of the screen) to see simultaneously the route from higher perspectives (i.e., a zoom out view), in order to acquire information regarding where the Waze would direct us, which roads, after every recalculations of the optimal route.

  6. White turning arrows

    Hi.Great app but recent change is little bit confusing.I’m talking about white arrows at turns.At distance to the junction it’s not clear and instantly obvious which way you should go.Before your route was continuously of certain colour but now because turns are white specifically,it is less visible.If turns were of different colour then white or perhaps the same colour as the whole route,it would be easier to see it straight away “without looking “ if you know what I mean.One more suggestion-when you get one of the routes taking you across the river Thames using ferry service,route time doesn’t include…

  7. Avoid steep roads

    It happened to me that I had to go north at night, and waze suggested me to drive through a steep and dangerous road, when the alternative was via Highway 4.
    The alternative was 10 minutes longer, but sometimes drivers would prefer to travel in a non-hazardous ways even if it takes longer.
    In my opinion, consider adding the "Avoid steep roads" option (similar to "Dirt roads" or "Avoid toll roads").

  8. Business Mileage

    Send text or post to calendar trip miles for business or personal use. Maybe prompt for business or personal when creating trip. Or maybe maintain log to email for reporting. Regular favourite trips have a check box to indicated "personal" or "business" would be a plus. This would be a huge enhancement!

  10. Add ability to avoid making U-Turns (for larger vehicles, or vehicles with a trailer in tow)

    If someone is driving a larger vehicle like an RV or towing a trailer (longer turning radius), avoiding U-turns would lessen the possibility that the vehicle would use a route that is not suitable. The route might be longer, but it would be safer.

  11. Implement a setting for winter tires with studs and help driver to avoid forbidden streets

    Implement a setting for winter tires with studs and help the driver to avoid forbidden streets. In urban areas in the Nordic countries it is becoming more common that local politicians forbid driving cars with winter tires with studs on some streets with high pollution. When creating a route to a destination, Waze do not take into account that some of the streets may be restricted due to this. This is becoming a problem since the driver need to be a local to know where not to drive. Signs showing the restriction are always present but will be noticed too…

  13. Public Bathroom Button

    Have a button that when pushed routes drivers to the nearest public bathroom and then returns to route once done with the bathroom. I've seen other suggestions that are related, but I think it needs to be something really simple because the bathroom issue usually comes up when someone says "we need to stop NOW" and it's never at a convenient time!

  14. Alerta de conducción contra el tránsito

    Hola Waze!!

    Es posible que incluyan una alerta, parecida a las de luces, que alerte por conducir en una vía contra el tránsito.

    Antes de ayer usaba la aplicación, sin indicación de ruta, e ingresé una calle sin letreros. El Waze solo se volvió loco con la flecha y no me percaté hasta que otro conductor me advirtió.

    Espero que lo consideren muy útil.

  16. When you driving on a average speed zone

    When you driving on a average speed zone than your left green panel what is showing the distance from average speed zone should show the speed too and the panel should change to red if the speed is more than the allowed average speed Also it should check the speed between one camera to the second one and not just from the first and last camera

  17. Sir David Attenborough's voice

    I find Sir David Attenborough's voice on the TV very calming. It's like being read a fairy tale to. I would love to hear him in my Waze. No more road rage

  19. ETA & TBR during holyday

    Some working week days might be a holiday once a year for some national celebration, and should be treated specially, not only for the ETA calculation, but also for TBR (Time Based Rules) for routing.
    It might be an 8th day of the week with its own stats and be activated for requiring countries based on a given dates list .

  20. Tracking in Tunnels

    When the GPS signal is lost in a tunnel, Waze sometimes locates your position with the phone network signal. This location can be nearby the tunnel or in a Town center. Sometimes it tries to recalculate the route
    .
    I suggest to the Waze team that inside tunnels, when the GPS signal is lost, the Navigator should keep giving indications based in the maximum speed in the tunnel (or last speed recorded).

    This could be very useful when you have exits in the Tunnels (for example M30 in Madrid) or the Exit is just after the end of the tunnel.

    We plan to work on simulatating the navigation while driving in a tunnel in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.
