  1. 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…

        • 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.

                • 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.

                  The editor could then set up a left turn being…

                      • 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.

                                    This is a residential area where a lot of little kids walk to and from Ivanhoe school. It is so dangerous and people don't abide to speed limits and often I see drivers looking at their navigation system zooming by.
