  1. אפשרות ניווט לתחנות דלק שפתוחות בשבת

    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.

    • 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.

      • In honor of White Cane Safety Day, create a alert to drivers that notifies the driver a person using a white cane is ahead.

        A person with a visual impairment can log on to the app and WAZE will track the user as they walk.
        A driver using the app is notified when a person using a white cane is nearby.

          • 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…

                        (Optional feature, just for active editors)
                        Some Update Requests (UR) require a visit to the place in order to verify, or even take pictures.
                        I'd like an option in the app that acts as a reminder, when I'm driving near one of this UR that I follow. Waze could show them on the map, with an optional notification. Then, if I have spare time, I could take some minutes in order to solve the UR.

                        • Automatic flag on unused places

                          Many places in the WME are not used for various reasons: The place was closed or moved, the place was created for an event that has passed, the place was wrongly created, the place exists but nobody uses it for routing. During the years, the number of such "garbage" places is growing, and will continue to grow forever.
                          There must be some way of cleaning these places from the map.
                          It is suggested that every place (excluding RPP and natural features) that nobody set it as a destination for 15 months, will be automatically flagged, with a reason that the…

                            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,…

                            • Push a notification if route changes due to traffic conditions

                              I typically only have alerts on for sound. So I often don't notice rerouting until it's too late. Seems like a no-brainer to push a notification when Waze wants to rerout around traffic.

                              • AskWazersBox - a hybrid reporting tool enhancing Wazers and Map Editors cooperation

                                As StreetView is often outdated or just does not exist when trying to keep Waze Maps updated with latest road constructions or changes, road configurations/restrictions/speed limits/signs etc. needs to be checked and verified on-spot. There's no chance Waze Map Editors will go and check everything themselves. We have so many Wazers driving around that could help them answering specific questions.

                                I suggest creating a hybrid reporting tool that would extend existing reporting functionality and help Waze Map Editors gathering specific answers they need directly from Wazers who are on-spot. This would let to keep Waze Maps updated as fast and…

                                    • Add Judeo-Spanish language

                                      I am proposing that Judaeo-Spanish enters the list of localized languages. It is an idea that has been in my mind for some years now, mainly because I love cultural heritage, and especially the one that creates links among different groups and countries. In the case of Judaeo-Spanish, it is not only Israel and Spain, but also many communities in several places around the world where Jewish people settle down after the Expulsion from Spain. As you will know, this language is also in danger of vanishing forever from daily use, which adds a social dimension to the task.

                                      Regarding…

                                      • 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.
