  1. 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…

  2. Enlarge the speed limit sign

    As an elderly person and someone who wears glasses when driving, I was hoping the sign that tells us the current speed limit when driving could be larger, or make it that we can adjust the size ourselves!

  3. S-Turn penalties

    In case of traffic even light, some ways become impossible to cross, mainly ave. with more than 3 or 4 lanes.
    Proposal to include a S-Turn routing penalties in case of traffic in the crossing street.
    This will avoid routing in ways with less than 200m (safe length for lane change is S-Turn even with traffic).

  5. Speed limit customization

    Be able to customize the layout for speed shown
    IE only showing speed limit, speed limit and actual speed.
    Be able to show speed limit all the time or just when the limit changes.
    As for me I want to show the speed limit all the time without actual speed.
    Would be nice to have an inbuilt function for alerting if the current speed limit is achieved, this function could have an tolerance of a user defined speed of 5,10,15,20,25,30 km/h before the warning comes.

  6. Expire events option

    Give a general or category specific option to delete/expire events. e.g. most crashes/accidents are cleared in 30 minutes or less, yet the event lingers in Waze for 2 hours or more. So let the user chose how old an event will be displayed.

  7. Have an OPTION for arriving on the same-side of the street as the destination.

    This would apply mostly to cities but it could also apply in other congested areas. Arriving on the wrong side of the street in a city situation can be as bad as arriving several blocks away since in order to turn into the parking for the building you cannot crossover the heavy traffic or possibly a median. Instead you have to come up with your own way of circling around (and there may be many 1-way streets to thwart you) to get your vehicle on the same side of the street as the destination so you can park/drop off or…

  8. Announcements depending on speed

    I recommend that Waze adjust the "trigger distance" for pre-alerts when traveling quickly.

    For example, currently Waze pre-alerts "In one-tenth of a mile ..." regardless of speed.

    If you are driving 60 MPH, you cover the one-tenth of a mile in a mere 6-seconds ... by that time, Waze is already alerting you (AGAIN) that it's time to make the turn.

    I'm all for voice alerts ... but when the app gabs for 10-seconds straight because of back-to-back announcements, eh....

  10. Gravel Road Checkbox in Map Editor

    An option similar to the Toll Road checkbox that would allow a street segment that's a Gravel Road to be checked off as such and would allow for more precise client preferences to avoid both dirt and gravel or just dirt roads. Many roads gravel roads are well maintained and perfectly suitable for travel, but shouldn't be marked as a Dirt Road/4x4 Trail.

  13. Add a 'record my route' button, you can then forward your ideal route to another wazer

    We all have our preferred routes, (example) it is so nice to give away your country adventure route to a friend and share the best views, rides and sceneries to the perfect holiday location. Just press the 'record' button and afterwards 'save route' and 'share route'.

  14. Color code road hazard and police reports etc to show how long ago they were reported

    Instead of having to click on the police icon to see how long ago it was reported color code the icons.
    Green = reported within last 10 minutes
    Yellow = reported within last 10-20 minutes
    Red = reported over 20 minutes ago

  15. SAVE ROUTES

    We should be able to save our preferred route. My favorite route doesn't show up half the time, and I wish I could save it. Also, you should be able to customize/create your own route. Would love feedback on this request, as I see people have been asking for this for years with no acknowledgement.

    We plan to work on showing the ETA with the correct time zone of your end destination in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

  18. Make alternative routes tappable directly on the map like GMaps.

    Hoping for tappable alternative routes on the map, which also shows time difference from the suggested route. This was a feature I liked a lot in GMaps.
