  1. קריינות בלשון נקבה הכוללת את שמות הרחובות

    waze שלום!
    רציתי לבקש שתוסיפו אפשרות של קריינות הפונה אלי בלשון נקבה וגם מקריאה את שמות הרחובות.
    נכון להיום, מתוך 6 אפשרויות קריינות, חמש פונות לגברים, ואילו רק אחת פונה לנשים, והיא לא כוללת את שמות הרחובות.
    אני נוטה לנחש שהיחס בין המשתמשים למשתמשות בWAZE אינו אחד לחמש.
    אודה לתיקון ושדרוג האפליקציה כך שאוכל לשמוע הוראות הפונות אלי במגדרי הנכון וגם מאפשרות לי לשמוע את שמות הרחובות, כך שאוכל לנווט ביתר קלות ולהשתמש בכל התכונות המעולות שWAZE מאפשרת לניווט קל.
    אני בטוחה שיש ברצונכם ליצור תחושת התייחסות שווה ואכפתית למשתמשות בWAZE .
    תודה,
    אחת שאכפת לה.

    • Alert drivers of cyclists

      As a cyclist I would love to see a feature in which drivers are alerted of cyclists in advance using real time data from other apps like strava, endomondo or mapmyride.

      • Optimized functionalities for motorbikes

        It's too bad Waze doesn't offer any of these functionalities for riders/bikers:
        - deactivate traffic jams in the time calculation (or consider we are at around 50 km/h on these parts of the path)
        - proposing winding/twisting roads with different levels, just like Tomtom and Garmin already do with their devices
        - allowing to create more than one step point to get the perfect itinerary
        - allowing the load of external files (such as .gpx for example) to create roadbooks on our computer (with Google Maps or else) and then send it to our smartphone.

        In brief, just a few…

            • Please remove Embry Circle & Alton Road in Atlanta 30341 from rush hour routes.

              This is a residential area with a community pool, a school and a Church. A lot of children and residents walk around the neighborhood every day. People don't honor the speed limits & it is very dangerous. We often see drivers looking at their navigation system zooming through stop signs and sometimes traffic gets so backed up, they turn around and speed through inner streets that don't connect to main roads trying to get around. This is awful and needs to change.

              • Use the voice of Sam Heughan (star of "Outlander") - the show is a big hit in UK, USA, Australia, etc.

                Use the voice of Sam Heughan (star of "Outlander" TV show) - clear scottish accent - the show is a big hit in UK, USA, Australia, etc. Would be good idea for a sales pitch.

                  • Avoid cyclists accidents warning drivers about cyclists groups

                    More and more cyclists are being run over. And Waze can help. Waze warns drivers about roadworks, accidents, traffic jams. why not do it with bicycles? Cyclists groups move, so they can't be pointed out by drivers
                    They must point out themselves. Cyclists select "bike mode" on the app , Waze identifies them as a group and warns drivers.

                              • Google based domain fronting for Waze to fight internet censorship

                                Hi

                                As you might know Waze is being blocked in different countries including Iran.
                                It would be great to implement domain fronting techniques for Waze client so people in countries with limited internet access could be able to use Waze without installing third party VPN software.
                                Messenger App Signal has implemented such techniques and it has been successful so far.

                                  • Enable the Difficult Turn setting to be time/day specific

                                    Today we have the ability to mark a turn as difficult, but we don't have a way to say it is only difficult during certain times of the day like during commute hours, or even to be only weekdays when there is commute traffic.

                                    The current UI could easily be updated to move the difficult turn box to the end of each row for the restriction. That way if an editor sets up a time for a restriction, it now becomes an option to be 100% restricted, or just difficult.

                                        • Speed limit on Android Auto

                                          Thanks for finally making Waze available on Android Auto but you left out the speed limit and it is one of my favorite features. It's especially helpful in rural areas where speed limit signs are few and far between and it makes it easy for law enforcement to set up speed traps.
