  1. Reminder: time to take a break!

    We suggest introducing notifications that would remind drivers to take a 10 minute break when they have driven for 2 hours non-stop, and after a 4 hour drive would suggest taking a 20 minute power nap.

    Research by the Latvian Road Traffic Safety Directorate shows that 11,7% of drivers are at high risk of falling asleep, and 1/3 of all drivers have experienced falling asleep at the wheel for a second in the last year.

    By reminding drivers how important it is to take breaks, Waze can help prevent tragic accidents and save lives.

    • Remove Chit-Chat option for Iranian users

      The Iranian people use this option for political purposes and insult to each other and racism. This has led Iran's government to ban this great app in the country.

      • Add friends without facebook

        Why am I forced to use facebook in order to add friends to Waze?? I don't use facebook, 75% of the world's population does not use facebook at all (and more with every day). Is keeping fb afloat Waze's most important purpose?
        Anyway, I don't want facebook friends on Waze, I want Waze friends on Waze and facebook friends on facebook, don't try to mix a driving app with a social network.

              • Multilingual addresses and POI names

                Support POI names and street addresses in multiple languages for a single country.

                Some countries out there de facto or de jure have 2+ official languages. So it would be great if map editors could specify language-specific names (not just "alternative" names) and if clients could prioritize names in chosen interface language over other variants.

                For example Belarus has 2 official languages: Belarusian and Russian. And I'd prefer to see Belarusian street names while using Belarusian interface, and Russian names - when using the Russian one.

                  • Report « ride against traffic » on highway // signalement dédié "contre-sens" sur autoroutes

                    A report “ride against traffic” would be:
                    - More easily and faster to report, despite stress.
                    - The other wazers know immediately what kind of danger is reporting.
                    - Set off the report 1.5 km / 1 mi before the action take place.

                    -- français --

                    Pour avoir vécu récemment un contre-sens, c'est frustrant de ne pas pouvoir signaler aux autres wazers un danger de ce type, assez fréquent malgré ce qu'on peut croire (1 contre-sens / semaine en France sur autoroutes, sans compter ceux qui ne sont pas détectés).
                    Un wazer avait indiqué un "danger sur la route" avec…

                    • "EV Charging" instead of "Gas Stations"

                      You can already tell Waze that you're driving an electric vehicle... so why do I still see "gas stations" as an option? Google Maps already has EV charging station POIs - let us select "EV Charging" instead of "gas stations"!

                            • Android Auto - Use Car Antenna

                              Right now, when connecting to Android Auto, Waze still uses the phone GPS antenna. In comparison, Google Maps pulls the location from the headset/car antenna, which is often placed optimally to maximize GPS signal strength from within the car.

                              Please set Waze to use the car's GPS antenna when connected via Android Auto

                                Spotify is nicely integrated into the waze phone app. It would be nice to also add Amazon Music app for those that don't use Spotify.

                                  Would love to have integration with Overcast and other podcast apps with waze. It’s great to have Spotify but having the same integration with other podcast apps.

                                  • "xx min ago" on alert popup

                                    add age of the report to the popup when alerting the driver about police/speed trap, hazard, accident etc.
                                    it does not take much space, but will be very informative and useful for Wazers - to know, when does the report was commited

                                    • Christmas Option - add a button to locate highly decorated houses!

                                      Every year we take our young children and drive round to spot the most outrageously Christmas decorated houses, but spend more time driving and trying to find them. Can you add a button to allow people add highly decorated houses with Christmas decorations - that way people can mark them and make an interesting Christmas trail??

                                        It’s your own product, why has it not been integrated yet?

                                        • Control audio warnings as a user option

                                          In the audio, there are only 3 options. Please add a 4th option as a " user option" There you can not only set the type of warning, but also control the amount of " before exit/turn " warnings. Today, you either have all of them ( 3 ) or nothing. I would like to have for example only 1 waning for exit + Police + speed camera and nothing else. Anyone can chose and set his own preferences on the audio notification.
