  1. Tabitha Brown

    PLEASE get Tabitha Brown to voice turn by turn directions. Her voice is beyond calming, reassuring, and peaceful. She’s an actress so it wouldn’t be difficult to find her. She’s on IG and TikTok @iamtabithabrown. You can find her on Facebook under her name. THIS WOULD BRING WOULD RESULT IN THOUSANDS, IF NOT, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of downloads.

    P.S. if you need help finding things the culture would appreciate and get behind, bring me on board. I gave you Tabitha for free.

  4. CarPlay Dashboard

    With the iOS 13.4, Apple opened up the CarPlay Dashboard to accept 3rd Party Maps instead of Apple Maps. It would be awesome to have Waze replace Apple Maps on the main Dashboard!

  5. Display the name of current city / village

    Make the application display the name of the city or village that you are currently in.
    Maybe also the name of the next city / village that you'll reach on your trip will be nice to have displayed with a smaller text font

  6. Tourist arriving at israel who are renting a car; be willing to use Waze in order to get to the nearest gas stations that are oparating duri

    Tourists arriving to Israel who are renting a car, may be interested to use Waze in order to get to the nearest gas stations that is open during weekends.

    רבים בציבור מעוניינים לתדלק אך ורק בתחנת דלק שפעילה גם במהלך סופי שבוע וחגים. נשמח אם תאפשרו הוספת פונקציה לאפליקציה שתציג בפני המנווט/ת אך ורק תחנות דלק כאלה, גם אם התדלוק הוא במהלך השבוע.

  7. Make the Alert Button and Speed Display floating

    English: Make the Alert Button and Speed Display floating, so the driver can position them on the screen in order to be more visible regardless of the position of the cell phone on the panel.

    Portugues: Fazer o Botão de Alerta e o Mostrador de velocidade flutuantes, assim o motorista pode posiciona-los na tela de forma a ser mais visivel independente da posição do telefone celular no painel.

  9. Truckers need food/restroom help during Covid-19 shut down

    Truckers need help finding restrooms and food that is open and will accept phone orders and walk food out curbside. Their large trucks cannot access drive thrus and they’re not allowed to walk up through the drive thru for safety reasons. With closed dining spaces truckers are going hungry trying to get food and supplies to us during the Covid-19 epidemic. We need a way for them to find open restrooms they can access and food that will walk it out to them as needed. Please Waze, these men and women are heroes. Working their butts off when many of…

  10. Let users add speed camera locations

    I noticed with the newest update that you omitted letting users update red light/ speed camera locations from the app .. not sure- why but I’d like to petition you to please add it back ..... we here in NYC are getting bombarded with cameras that have nothing to do with driving safe ( not near schools - hospitals etc) they are just another way for this city to take money from its hard working overtaxed citizens..

  11. To mark street - Kids are playing

    Dear Waze Maps,

    My friends and I have come across a problem. This problem is kids playing on a community road/street. This presents a risk to kids , drivers , and property. For example , a kid who is playing on the road could get injured by a car hitting him/her. The car could also swerve and hit another car , injuring the driver and/or car. Another possibility is for the car to hit property like : signs , decorations , houses , or light posts.

    A person who is familiar with the road usually doesn't use Waze maps ,…

  12. Additional camera types, with names and TTS defined by community

    July 2020, Waze has three camera types: speed, red light, dummy. It is clear talking to different community leaders that the requirements for specific cameras vary from country to country. Thus, we are asking for the ability to add new camera types per country, with the ability to input into text to speech (TTS), and on/off toggle alert in the app. These could be provided by form, similar to new gas station brands, etc. by a country's leadership.

    Alternatively, collect a list of camera types from the communities to create a long list, and allow countries to turn them on/off…

  13. Simulator to test editions

    Sometimes when we make changes to the map, we need to wait for it to update to see if it had the desired effect.
    It would be nice to have some type of simulation in the WME and thus be able to avoid various changes until the expected result is obtained.
    Because of COVID, many editors have not been able to check if the changes we made had the impact we wanted, so we had to wait for a report that warns us of the error or not.

  15. UR - add screenshot option

    On a daily basis, users report some map issues (lacking precision) that we could not verify just by the UpdateRequest data in WME, or they just do not remember/know the names of the streets/landmarks to help us find and solve the issue. Most of the times, we, the editors, need to search a lot for things that could be indicated inside of Waze, without using third parties for posting photos and screenshots like imgur.com, Facebook, or our personal contact pages/phone numbers/emails.

    A button for adding a screenshot could be useful somewhere in the message notification screen.

  16. Waze debe proteger la integridad física y síquica de sus usuarios

    @ChileWaze Waze no está identificando los lugares en que hay manifestaciones!! Ayer me llevó por Avda Providencia, en Santiago de Chile, con calle Seminario, donde CASI ME AGREDEN con piedras y artefactos cortantes.
    La app no tiene una opción que permita avisar de estas situaciones de peligro, y lo peor, sugiere transitar por calles y avenidas, ocupadas por manifestantes agresivos.
    En todas las ciudades importantes del mundo, hay protestas pacíficas o violentas, y la aplicación no advierte su presencia, poniendo en peligro a sus usuarios

  18. Coloured roads in night mode / Цветни пътища в нощен режим

    English:
    Please, in night mode, make roads on the map in different colours, something like in the colour scheme "Map editors", but on black background. The map will be more contrast, readable and useful - even if we do not have route.

    Български:
    Моля, в нощен режим, направете пътищата на картата в различни цветове, нещо като в цветната схема "Картографи", но на черен фон. Картата ще бъде по-контрастна, четлива и полезна - дори да нямаме маршрут.

  19. Red Forman GPS voice

    "Buckle up and let's cruise the vistas"
    "Turn left before I turn my foot right in your ass"
    "You made the wrong turn dumbass, are you on dope?"
    "You're going the wrong way dumbass, turn around before I put my foot in your ass"

    ANY classic Red Forman quotes would be fantastic!

  20. Wild animals warning signs alert

    In Nordic countries there are a lot of moose/reindeer warning signs along the road. This kind of alert could be very useful when you are driving, like speedometers, especially in bad weather conditions. A moose can weigh 700kg and a collision with one of them can be deadly. At the moment some navigators have this function.
