  1. add option to disable traffic based routing

    When routing, waze often attempts to route around traffic. Waze is used occasionally for just the first part of a journey (navigating a downtown area, for example) and I find it selecting a completely different route every time I use it because it attempts to route around the traffic at work.

    Another example is that during extremely heavy traffic in a snowstorm, waze had me exiting at every freeway exit and then entering the freeway again, simply because the freeway exits had little traffic on them compared to the freeway itself.

    Because of this, there should be a simpler routing…

  2. Routing style "least turns"

    In an area I've been recently "shortest" and "fastest" routing options will wind me through crowded neighborhoods; rather then main roads and fewer turns.

  5. Barre des incident de parcours

    serait il possible d'afficher en permanence la barre de l'état du traffic de navigation qui s'affiche au début lors du calcul du parcours? Elle se mettrait à jour toutes les 5 minutes. avec notre position en fonction du parcours général ou d'une portion de 50km qui avance en même temps.

  7. Ability to edit the text-to-voice pronounciations

    While navigating, text-to-voice feature often pronounces abbreviations literally - eg 'univ' as 'univ', not 'university'. It also pronounces 'Ave' like 'wave' not the long 'a' in 'Avenue'

    Can map editors fix individual signs and navigation cues?

    (I'm a level 1 editor - so maybe this something that senior editors have access to)

  8. 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…

  11. While choosing a route, display routing options available.

    While choosing a route, display routing options available such as avoiding highways. (Instead if searching through the menus then refreshing the route options)

  13. WAZE route option for golf cart path

    I set up a route while on a golf cart path in The Villages, FL amd was given an option to use "golf cart" path. The route worked flawlessly! Is that an option somewhere in WAZE? If so, where is it?

  15. If going from/to work/home on preferred route, set audio to "alerts only".

    We all go from work/home several times a week, usually by a preferred route, unless there's some traffic jam. I would like that the default audio setting is "alerts only" if I'm driving the route I know REALLY well. If it's rerouting me from my preferred route due to some event, then use whatever method is set for the client.

  16. Display Speed cameras in driving direction only

    Can you please add an option so that Speed cameras are only shown if located on the right side of the road. Speed cams on the other side have no point ! It is disturbing to see you are approaching it and then, it turns out it is on the other side.

    how to display the maximum speed roads? Users can report speed signs on the road and as it always the maximum speed on the road and we would know why not create an alert if you drive too fast.

  19. Flash directions section of the screen when approaching turn

    When approaching a turn flash the directions section of the screen a few times. This allows for users that use waze with the volume down but can still alert them to an approaching turn by getting their attention.
