  1. ambulance

    What if the ambulance drivers was using Waze as well and I got a message or a siren on my waze as the ambulance approached the location where I was. I would know that there was an ambulance coming on my way and i could pull over in order to let it pass through.

    I have no idea about Waze database, but I am sure it is not small. I believe it could be very helpfull to all parties: ambulance would reach hospital fasters; patients would not have the risk to be in traffice and get treatment faster; driver would…

  3. private roads

    Add an option like "Allow only private roads I have driven" or "Allow only private roads in my address book" so that Waze will avoid private rounds for which a user is not authorized.

    As you probably know, some of the voices we feature are promotional, meaning they are only available for a limited time.
    We offer special voices for holidays, events, and just for fun.
    You can use these for the length of the promotion. When the promotion ends, your voice will reset to the default and the voice will no longer appear in the Sound menu.

    We hope that you enjoyed the voice while it was available and can’t wait to share more exciting voices to come!

    Want to try another voice?

    Tap Menu and tap the Settings wheel.
    Tap Voice & sound.
    Tap Voice Language and select the voice you’d like to use.

  5. Why can't it show direction of an alert. I hate having an alert only to find it on the other side of the interstate!

    Today was my first time using Waze....what a bother to be preparing for a slow down, construction, accident whatever, only to get "there" and discover the hazard on the other side of the interstate......Could we get a "North, South, East, West" with the hazard so we could know if we were actually coming up to it or not?????

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    This suggestion will not be implemented for the time being. Adding more and more options to reporting, especially for less popular types of reports such as other side which will also require another window/card, is not something we are aiming for at the moment. Please be aware that other side reporting is already available by voice using the Google Assistant! We believe investing in voice can create essentially a better and more scalable experience and we hope to bring it to more languages soon.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram.

  6. Create a feature called "Waze meetings"

    Suppose 2 friends want to meet.
    The feature shall suggest optimal meeting places located in an area that will allow both arrive at the same time, located in the middle of their way, according to the purpose of the meeting - Bar B.Q., dinner, bowling, Cinema, etc.

  9. Bring back Tom

    Please bring back the "Tom" voice. Jane mispronounces streets, and at times she is very difficult to understand. The Tom voice was articulate. Not sure why you discontinued this voice. A contract expired? Hey, pay him whatever he wants and get him back please.

  10. How about making voice navigation work in WP8 again.....

    worked great til two weeks ago, No mention of discontinuing support for WP. If you are - fine -be a man and post it to the forum so we know. If not - how about giving instructions to fix? (reinstalling didn't work).

  11. Rachel navigation voice back

    The Developers have change the standard Brazilian navigation voice from Rachel to Alessandra.
    The new voice it's to low. The voice misses some intonation.
    This causes many navigation/driving mistakes to the user, including me and my friends that I talk about it.
    Please, we need the Rachel voice back.

  13. Show gas station on my way

    Navigate me to a gas station that is on my way rather than a gas station that is nearest to my current location. That will be suitable for drivers that wants to pass through a gas station but it is not that urgent to them and just don't want to get off track too much that could stall them.

  14. Seria muito interessante que os alarmes de radar indicassem a velocidade máxima permitida no trecho

    É muito bom o alarme do Waze sobre radares de velocidade, porém a ausência da informação da velocidade máxima permitida no trecho é um fator muito importante que deveria ser exibido junto com o alarme

  15. Addresses in Colombia

    Addresses are pretty easy to implement in Colombia, they have 2 components. The main road being it a Calle or Carrera most of the time, and the House number, made of two parts, The intersection with the opposing road, for example a Carrera would intersect with a Calle and viceversa, and the distance from the intersection. For example, Calle 45 #67-85 would be 85 meters after the intersection of Calle 45 and Carrera 67, on Calle 45 going towards calle 68. It would be pretty easy, and really convenient for users in Colombia.

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    We are aware of this need since address fields are ordered differently from one country to the other.
    Providing this flexibility in address fields is planned but it’s out of current scope so we can’t share a timeline at the moment.
    We will keep the community posted, so stay tuned!

  16. Scenic Route

    Many of us love weekend road trips. Occasionally it's nice to take the scenic route instead of the fastest.

  18. Auto Shutdown at Destination

    When arriving at your destination have Waze prompt an Auto-Shutdown with a 10 second countdown. I always shutdown my Waze when I arrive and instead of having to click menu and then shutdown, why not have Waze offer to do it automatically. This will also save battery if people forget.
