  1. send destination or itinerary from computer to phone

    Hi! It would be nice to send itinerary or destination from a web brower on a computer directly to the Waze app. A Great way would be through the "share menu" extension built in OSX.

  4. Danger Area

    I suggest creating a dangerous areas alert feature as slums, streets or dangerous areas, with danger degree (high, medium or low) for assault, burglary, vandalism, etc. And the system always warn approach. The user can configure whether you want a route that deviates from the area or not, as you prefer the user.

  5. Make a segment routable or not depending on atmospheric conditions

    Some segments (dirt specially) are routables or not depending on dry or wet conditions.
    Since there are Apps. that report rain conditions on specific places, use that information to decide if some segments can be used to navigation.

  7. Text colors

    Presently, in turn-by-turn navigation, the distance until the next maneuver is in white an the name of the street/exit where that maneuver is to take place is in blue. The blue text is hard to read against a black background; and since the name of the street/exit is more important than the distance to it (IMO), I recommend switching these colors to show the street/exit name in white (and the distance in blue).

  8. (Re)-Add a Flemish Voice

    Apparently Google has removed Ellen (Flemish) voice because she was previously provided through Nuance. Google currently doesn't own/have a Flemish voice. Since Waze is owned by google this means we currently don't have a Flemish voice. So I ask if you guys could please ask for our flemish voice back. She is really missed :( FLEMISH ≠ DUTCH

  9. USO WAZE EM MODO OFF-LINE

    O WAZE PODERIA TER A OPÇÃO DE NOTICICAÇÕES/ALERTAS E OUTROS QUANDO ESTIVER OFF LINE, POIS DIVERSAS VEZES FICAMOS SEM SINAL NO CELULAR IMPOSSIBILITANDO O ENVIO DE ALERTAS/NOTICICAÇÕES.
    NO BRASIL NAO POSSIMOS UMA REDE DE CELULAR EFICAZ COMO EM OUTROS PAISES.
    O SISTEMA DEVERIA ACEITAR OS ALERTAS/NOTIFICAÇÕES E ASSIM QUE ESTIVER NOVAMENTE COM SINAL ON-LINE, ESTE ATUALIZARIA PARA DEMAIS USUARIOS E PONTUARIA O WAZE NOTIFICADOR.

  11. Improve prompts for U-turn

    Currently when Waze gives a U-turn instruction the voice prompt is "Make a U-turn ON [name of street you are on]. The problem with this is everyone knows that a U-turn is "ON" the street you are on. However, the driver does not know WHERE to make the U-turn. Map editors routinely see Update Requests where the driver was given a U-turn instruction and thought the turn was at a different intersection than where Waze was instructing them to make the U-turn.

    What would actually help the driver is if Waze informed the driver WHERE to make the U-turn. The…

  12. Ability to plan a route for EVs

    As Electric Vehicles are in the rise, can we please have route planning based on charge locations, preferably with charger filtering? Something like ABRP or Plugshare but with our beloved Waze? Or at least a route transfer interface between our Waze and the abovementioned planners? EV are coming, you can rest assured. Thanks. And above all, many thanks for countless years of great planning and traffic jam avoiding!

  13. Show border line on map

    Since the corona virus crossing borders in Europe isn't that easy as before. So it would be nice if I could see the border line clearly on the map. A thick red line for example (like google maps) or something similar would be neat.

    It also makes things easier to navigatie if you know whether you entering a different country when planning your route. In Europe, this sometimes could be the case.

  16. Add Soundcloud as one of the music player options to make a navigation voice and music pause a seamless driving experience

    It would be nice if Soundcloud was added to the music player list. There's so many other options on there but that's only only one that's missing that commonly used. It would be nice if it was added so the music music can pause and resume or lower for navigation directions.

  18. CarPlay update

    Waze is super useful in car over my cellphone (iPhone)
    However, once plugged into my car with CarPlay, the experience is worst that ever. In fact, the CarPlay interface of the app does not support all functions offered in the mobile version such as :
    1. Unable to signify a fixed radar photo
    2. Unable to specify the police specification (visible, hide, opposite side)
    3. Unable to launch a SOS and so on
    In fact, the types of available notices is so small.

    In addition, you can’t find a gas station easily as in the app cause you don’t have…

    "Where Am I Button." Instantly gives GPS address and nearest local address.Drop a marker. Save that marker location as a-z designation, Easily ported for transmittal into text, email or messenger messages. Be able to "drop" a marker and then return to it at anytime by selecting it from an a-z designated list of markers. Be able to identify a list of these markers and then have WAZE find the shortest path between all the selected markers. This would help someone who has a list of clients and on any given day has to make deliveries to say 12 of them.…

  20. Guidance in tunnel continue based on previous Wazers

    In English : As you'll never put beacons in every tunnel in the world, it would be cool that when signal is lost, Waze continue guiding assuming that we follow instructions and that we drive the speed necessary to make the mean time of crossing the tunnel of previous wazers. Waze could continue displaying a dot instead of an arrow during this loss of signal to warn the Wazer.

    En français : comme vous ne pourrez jamais mettre de beacons dans tous les tunnels du monde, ce serait cool que Waze continue à guider quand le signal est perdu en…
