  1. Specify Commercial vehicle widths and enable vehicle exclusions

    Have a Commercial vehicle option (where you can select size of vehicle, or even make and model) and then we could avoid width restrictions or commercial vehicle exclusions such as the Royal Parks in London.

  3. Bring back ability to report traffic on EITHER side of the road!!

    The latest update, 4.0.0.3, removed the ability to report traffic on either side of the road. I no longer can rely on traffic reports NOR the routing WAZE gives me. I frequently now see RED roads when MY direction is clear and the other side of the road is not. When WAZE gives me routes that look like they are around traffic I can NO LONGER depend on them to be accurate. When you removed this option to report traffic on either side of the road you trashed the MOST useful function of WAZE. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!

  4. Speed Limit Change Alert

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add a voice alert of speed limit changes. I am on the highway all the time and the speed limit constantly changes. It would be helpful if the voice would say “Speed limit has increased” or “Speed limit has decreased”. I got a ticket because I thought I was still in a 75mph speed zone and I didn’t realize it changed to 55mph. Yes the image of speed limit changes accordingly but a nice voice alert would be extremely BENEFICIAL!! Thank you!!!

  7. fuel/energy efficient route

    Both electric cars and everyone who cares about fuel efficiency would love to find a route that uses the least amount of fuel/energy. It would be great if Waze could calculate a route based on fuel consumption and suggest a route that uses less. It would be a wonderful thing if Waze could say,"We help save x tons of CO2 every day by routing drivers to be more fuel efficient".

  8. Indicate side of road with Destination Icon

    When on the last leg of a route, it is impossible to tell which side of the road the destination is on until it comes into view on the map display. The destination marker showing that you're on the last leg should indicate the side of the road the destination is on.

  9. 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…

  10. Add filling stations to supply GNV in places

    In Brazil , many cabbies customers use compressed natural gas in their cars. It would be interesting to have this option also the navigation menu and search for fuel stations.

    Routs for RV's, travel trailers, 5th wheels, motor homes, etc. No U-turns, warnings for narrow roads, avoidances for roads that have many switch backs, additional traffic concerns related to RVers such as steep grades, windy conditions, and unsafe for large and long vehicles.

  15. Increase speed camera alert distance

    Nowadays, speed camera can get your velocity one mile distance. If your configuration alerts you a quarter of mile before event, its become useless for the speed camera alert, specialy in roads.

  17. report lane changes in yards not feet

    when distance is set to miles, small distances are reported in feet, yards is more commonly in use ( at least for significant distances of say 1000 feet (300!yards)) in uk

  18. 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.

  19. Samuel L. Jackson

    Use Samuel L. Jackson's voice for navigation. Give directions in the same voice he used in the audio book "Go the F#*! to Sleep" by Adam Mansbach. Optional swearing of course.

  20. Weather overlay.

    Weather overlay. Especially for storms and warning/watches. So we don’t have to toggle between apps while driving!
