  1. Please stop routing onto bike routes

    I live in an area of the country with a lot of bike routes. Those routes are established on the assumption that they are low in auto traffic, or least generally local-only traffic. That seems to prompt Waze to guide me onto them fairly frequently during heavy traffic times, but in doing so this violates that basic assumption of keeping them low traffic.

    As someone who bikes and drives regularly, I'd rather not see those routes grow in auto traffic as Waze adoption increases. If possible, please stop routing auto traffic onto those routes so that they can remain safe…

  2. Ad option under navigation for "fastest route".

    It seems shortest distance (in miles) is the option Waze gives. In one case, Waze tries to take me over and around the mountain which is actually longer due to very sharp curves.

  4. Mudança na tecnologia 3G deixa Waze "maluco" sem GPS, nos forçando a desligar o 3G de diversas operadoras do Brasil

    Todos brasileiros que estiverem enfrentando problemas no GPS de seus aparelhos por culpa de mudanças na tecnologia 3G que as operadoras vem realizando de 2015 para cá, por favor somem-se a mim votando para que a Waze interceda junto às companhias telefônicas para corrigirem ou apresentarem alternativas a este problema.

    A maioria dos usuários simplesmente vem deixando de usar o Waze, por acreditar que seja problema no aplicativo, quando o problema na verdade é algum conflito do GPS (qualquer outro app que use terá o mesmo problema) com mudanças que vem ocorrendo na tecnologia 3G.

    Afirmo com segurança que o…

  5. PLEASE PLEASE LISTEN TO US

    PLEASE take Springdale RD, Oakdale Rd and Lullwater Atlanta 30307 off of your app. You are suggesting these very residential streets as cut throughs for traffic. This is bringing in way more traffic than our streets can handle AND (I believe) creating a spike in crime.

  9. Aires de repos

    Alors tout comme nous mettons de plus en plus en avant les parkings lors de long trajet sur l'autoroute il est conseillé de prendre régulièrement des pauses se dégourdir les jambes s'aéré changer de conducteur quand cela est possible ... puis bon certaines envie pressante (pas besoin d'un dessin) une option afin d'alerter de l'air de repos la plus proches ou la possibilités de les repéré facilement sans avoir a les chercher via les panneau etc qui nous ajouterais l'air la plus proche dans le parcoure.

  12. Mejorar la seguridad en la vía

    Para mejorar la seguridad de los conductores en la vía, especialmente en Colombia, se debería:

    -Crear una notificación por voz que sugiera disminuir la velocidad por la existencia de baches peligrosos en la vía.
    - Permitir a los usuarios "pintar" los baches en la vía con un color que les permita a otros usuarios darse cuenta de la posición exacta de los mismos. De igual manera, se les permita "borrar" los baches que vayan siendo reparados.
    - Permitir la descarga previa de la ruta con notificaciones sobre baches para evitar accidentes por pérdida de conectividad.

    We plan to work on showing the ETA with the correct time zone of your end destination in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

  14. Let people know when they're entering the London Congestion Charge

    On Wednesday I travelled to the tower hill coach and car park. I popped it into Waze and it said I would arrive at 1825, which was quite late but not at all unreasonable for driving into London. Being that that car park is about 200m into the congestion charge I felt safe that I wouldn't arrive before 1800 and be charged (and if conditions changed and it started showing too early, I could stop and hang about). The ETA would change occasionally as I drove in but never dropping below 1800. At 1745 I was approaching the entry to…

  15. Áreas de Risco, postos de combustível e estacionamento

    Sugestão para:
    1-Permitir marcarmos área de risco. Vez ou outra o waze manda entrar em Comunidades e ruas perigosas;
    2-Na configuração disponibilizar "mostrar no
    Mapa", postos de combustível e estacionamentos.

    Sobre área de risco, essa semana uma atriz da globo teve o carro baleado com percurso numa área perigosa.

    After a turn, it'd be nice if the distance before the next turn is said. something like "turn right and go straight for 5 miles"

  17. Parking Lots Should Complete Navigation to a linked Place

    Many Parking Lots were created with the big push a few years ago but never had much use other than the ones flagged as Public for downtown type parking areas.

    For restricted type parking lots that only serve a single place, once a user enters the parking lot for the place, navigation should complete.

    A link would need to exist between the parking lot area and the place point/area.

    This would create a usefulness to these parking lot areas that were created, as currently they simply are clutter on the map and serve generally no purpose.

  18. Low Bridge indicator on map editor

    Problem I see there is no low bridge indicator on map editor if it could be added with height restrictions ...it would be a big problem solver for us truck drivers. Who drive around the cities all the time. I my self have tried to navigate around cities .with low bridges.. and it's no fun ...you truckies will know what I mean

  20. Variable Toll versus Fixed Toll opton

    A lot of users want Waze to add additional features for variable tolls but all I am asking for is for Waze to recoginze the difference between fixed tolls and varaible tolls. I've come to the conclusion that Waze is pretty much unusable for my comute from Falls Church to Herndon, VA becuase it either wants to take me on the unaffordable express lanes OR avoid the reasonable Dulles Toll Road.
