  1. Semaphores

    Waze could have an algorithm to detect where are the semaphores in the city, and keep how long they take to open, to avoid the semaphores that take longer.
    There are some semaphores in São Paulo that take too long to open. It would be very useful to avoid them.

  2. 'Add a stop' by touching the map

    Today, you can only add a stop by choosing a favourite or typing a location. Often, when I drive to a certain location, I stop by a small detour on the map of a location I just know by ... location. I think being able to just open up the map and touch where you need to go would greatly improve the 'Add a stop' feature

  3. Fix Nav/Add a stop -

    When I add a stop (iPhone 4s) The navigation usually gets "stuck" in "proceed to the highlighted route" and updates sporadically, if at all. The car icon tracks properly on the map, but the text is frozen. This happens most of the time I use "Add a stop".

  4. add prompt to go straight at intersection

    at the moment, the default navigation of waze says nothing when you're supposed to go straight through an intersection. this is problematic in cases where after a long straight there are two intersections closely after one another and sometimes it is tough to guess how many '800/400/200metres' actually are, so you end up turning one turn too soon.

  5. an option TO CLOSE the Waze after reach to a destination.

    after we reached to a destination, I always forget to close the application. While I'm moving by walking, the app was still running and drying my battery. we need to turn off the Waze automatically. plus add an option to manually put how much time the Waze need auto turn off it.

  6. I need help to find out why my normal route is not given us an option anymore.

    For whatever reason a couple of days ago my normal option is now not given us a route when I go to navigation. I'm not sure what happened, or if there was an update. I am not happy anymore.

  7. Show distance covered and time passed while driving

    It would be great if waze can display the time passed and the distance i covered in km or miles since i started driving when my app is running. This can be optional and the distance covered display can be turned on and off using settings.

  8. Improve starting voice directions

    When setting off from a parking lot I find wave does not give directions left or right when exiting the parking lot. A lot of times I'm left guessing, or having to study the map. It's almost like wave has no idea where it is!

    Once you've made the turn its gets on track.

  9. Ability to report closure of highway ramps. Not just streets.

    It would be nice to be able to report when highway on and of ramps are closed so the client software doesn't keep trying to put you back onto those ramps. Also can warn others ahead of time so that those wazers can adjust their own plan to get where they're going.

  14. Marking roads as non-allowed transit routes

    In Sweden quite a few roads are prohibited from use when it comes to transit routes, usually because they run through densely populated areas and school zones. Using these prohibited routes will get you a fine if caught.

  16. I was wondering of you could add a feature to tell others when a stoplight is out at an intersection ?

    Just to add a feature that can mark where a stoplight is out or blinking red.

  17. Auto-Replay Messages, when in use...

    I have. Razr Maxx, and everytime I drive the Smart Actions, auto answer the SMS, but only replay the SMS... A very good option for Waze, will be Auto-Replay messages from Viver, What'sApp, e-Mail, etc.

  18. Miscellaneous Suggestions - Reporting Items Not There and Hazards

    I would suggest having the ability to select reports and mark them as not there. For instance, oncoming traffic reports of speed traps or traffic that have since cleared up but not timed out.

    Also reporting a road hazard of disabled vehicle on the road. Currently there's vehicle on shoulder and you can report an accident on the road. We should be able to note a disabled vehicle blocking one lane.

    Lastly there should be the ability to note in an accident if it's affecting both sides (when EMS responds from both directions and closes lanes), when the road is…

  19. Better direction instructions - instead of current wayfinder segment work-aound

    Wayfinder segments (‘street’ > ‘direction’) look like a pure workaround to me and for good reasons they are primarily used for ramps entering a freeway or at freeway intersections.

    For intersections within a city or other non freeway roads outside of cities there is no satisfying solution as the street name often is NOT the best navigation instruction.

    This is a critical issue in countries like Germany where “smaller” roads often are neither known by their numbers nor by their street names.

    A “new” „wayfinder“ feature should not miss-use the semantics of the street name field.
    Instead we should have…

  20. 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.
