  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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • הוספת אפשרות דיווח על בעל חיים משוטט בצידי הכביש

          בתאריך ה 16.1.17 יצאו משפחת אלמקייס מביתם במצפה רמון בשעות הערב במטרה להגיע לאירוע משפחתי בצפון. הם לא חשבו שהנסיעה תיגמר כל כך מהר בטרגדיה נוראה שכזו. כעשר דקות לאחר שיצאו מביתם אירעה תאונה קטלנית בה מעורב רכב המשפחה וגמל ששוטט על כביש 40. בתאונה נהרג ליאל, בן המשפחה, כבן 13 ובני משפחתו נפצעו ונפגעו באורח קשה. תאונות בהן מעורבים בעלי חיים הם דבר נפוץ בכבישים ויכולות להימנע בקלות.
          אם תהיה באפשרותנו, הנהגים ומשתמשי הדרך, לדווח למערכת הניווט ולמשתמשי האפליקציה על גמל או בעל חיים אחר שמשוטט בצידי הכביש, תאונות רבות ימנעו וחיי אדם יקרים מפז יינצלו.

          • Make Waze a built-in app with Android

            It would be great to make Waze a built in app that comes shipped with Android and ready to be used right out of the box. Waze is owned by Google and something like that may be possible. This will make users in countries where Waze is not famous know that the app exists and make them at least give it a try.

            If this is not possible then maybe establish partnerships with smartphone companies to make Waze available as a built in app with their version of Android.

            Another suggestion is to rename the Waze app to something like…

            • 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.

              • How to Help Emergency Vehicles To Reach Their Destination Faster

                How to Help Emergency Vehicles To Reach Their Destination Faster
                Waze should have a new mode of operation for priority vehicles (buses, taxis, ambulances, firefighters, police...), because only these vehicles are authorized to travel on priority lanes.
                A special Emergency Sub-mode should be added for rescue and police vehicles. These vehicles have authorization, in case of emergency, to activate their warning lights and horns, to drive on contraflow lanes, on sidewalks...
                Emergency vehicle drivers shall be able to enter this sub-mode after a secure identification and certified authorization mechanism
                On the Waze screen of all the drivers in the vicinity,…

                  • Waze RoadTrip- A New Option for Wazers

                    You will likely want to hear an idea that will expand your audience and retain your current customer base.

                    Recently, I embarked on an excursion from Orlando, FL to Charleston, SC. It’s a fairly short road trip, but within those 6 hours, I wondered to myself how great it would be to see more than just the highway in front of me and the trees that lined the road. I quickly grew exhausted from seeing the same paved road, white lines, and billboard signs over and over again.

                    I turned to my boyfriend with two hours left on our trip…

                    • 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…

                          • Notify about reason for route modification

                            Today we were driving on the highway in Hungary. We still had some 270 km of highway left, but Waze told us to exit. We know the road very well and thought it was a mistake. Actually there was a traffic jam ahead and we lost 30 minutes.
                            It would be awesome if, in case Waze modifies a segment of a route because of a traffic jam (or something else), it would notify you and add the reason for it.
                            Ex. "Exit the highway in 400m because of upcoming traffic jam, saving 30 minutes."

                            Note that I am not talking…

                                • 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

                                  • Radar alert with visual speed information

                                    I suggest inserting the speed information into the radar notification. The notification now only reports that there is a radar a few meters ahead, not to mention speed. The radar speeds are all set up in the Waze maps, being information that can be easily extracted. The feature would certainly help many users, even eliminating the use of applications that perform this function. I also recommend that in settings there be options to "always be notified", "be notified only when above speed" or "never be notified." Allowing the user to decide on notifications.

                                    • התרעה על מזג אויר קשה

                                      שלום,
                                      בזמן שיש תחזיות מזג אויר לגבי "שטפונות בנחלי המזרח והדרום" לדוגמא, אנשים לא יודעים לאן הם נוסעים, כי הם משתמשים בווייז, ולכן הצעה לפרסם התרעה למי שמתכנן נסיעה בווייז לאזור ים המלח, "התרעה על שטפונות".
                                      כמו שעשיתם לגבי הדלקת אורות בחורף בכבישים בינעירוניים.
                                      עלו והצליחו!

                                      • Add a “Send a report” option for stopped emergency vehicles

                                        EVERY state in the US has a law that requires motorists to act accordingly when approaching a stopped evergency vehicle on the highway to reduce the risk of hitting the stop vehicle or personnel working outside of their vehicle. The laws are commonly referred to “Slow Down Move Over” laws. Although there is an option in Waze to report police or a stopped vehicle in general, adding an option for a stopped emergency vehicle with a voice alert of “Watch out, emergency vehicle stopped ahead, slow down or move over 1 lane when approaching and passing” will further help educate…

                                        • Long Time Report from WME or Livemap

                                          I think this is something that has been asked and requested for a long time from all over the world.
                                          I think that it would be very useful to be able to insert Long Time Reports from WME or Livemap, also in order to better manage crisis or event situations.
                                          The Report should Be:
                                          Work on Road
                                          Narrow or Low Road
                                          Dangerous Road
                                          Landslide
                                          Changing lane
                                          One way alternatively controlled by traffic light
