  1. RV/Truck routing

    Any possibility in the future to be able to choose RV or Tractor Trailer as your vehicle then trigger truck routes that would send you around low clearances or sharp turns, step grades etc.?

  2. Autodetect closures and closed roads

    Waze should automatically detect closures and close roads without relying on Wazers to use the in-app closure function or on map editors to add them. Just as Waze can detect traffic and reroute, it could also detect when no one follows the directed guidance and there is zero traffic on a segment. Then when Wazer start driving on the segment again it could reopen.

    Google Maps (part of Google Geo) gets closure info from Waze. And Waze (part of Google Geo) should also get closure info from Google Maps. It doesn't now, and instead will route Wazers into a closed…

  3. RV routes

    I use Waze vigorously, however, in the summer of vacation time we adventure out in our RV. It would be helpful to have routes provided by selecting the vehicle type as an RV, and using roads specifically safe for an RV/18 wheeler truck.

    These vehicles are not designed for small narrow roads, and would need to have the safest route provided possible.

    Is it possible that we can have better options for the vehicle type, and this way Waze can make a suggested route specifically for said vehicle type? I honestly believe this would increase the amount of users for…

  4. Add public transportation in app for users to choose as their vehicle type to match available restriction settings in WME.

    In WME we have: Private, Electric, Motorcycle, Public transportation, Taxi.
    In the app we have: Private, Taxi, Motorcycle (+ EV in a different menu)

    Main use case would be for unscheduled buses, such as tour buses, school buses, private hire buses, etc. that are not really “public transport”, but are allowed to use bus-only roads and turns.
    Local authorities can define bus+taxi or just bus restrictions for turns and streets. We can map this correctly in WME, but then users don’t have an option that would route them through public transport only areas.

  6. New Alternate Routes requires too much attention

    Firstly, I was unable to find the alternate routes option the first time I used the latest update. The screen was unfamiliar, and in the moment, while driving, it’s not a great time to discover new design choices. I would have appreciated an in-app notification or walkthrough showing the update before embarking on my drive.

    Secondly, I’m not yet a fan of the redesign. The x-minutes slower/faster is a bit cumbersome, requiring that I do mental math to determine when I’ll arrive based on the route option.

    Third, needing to swipe across the screen to see the detailed info requires…

  7. Traffic light symbol and stop sign symbol when on direction.

    I work with Amazon delivery. And their GPS are awesome. They have traffic light symbol, stop sign and locations number (house, office building number) that would help us when navigating and identified when to turn after traffic light or stop sign symbols. If they did it. You can do it too. That would help us alot for wazers!

  8. Please add Electronic tolls on the system

    Please add Electronic tolls on the system, only appears classic tolls, and this is a big problem when you select a no toll route, and the system drives you throug a route with Electronic toll, and you have no eay to pay but before using them, like in Portugal

  9. Please allow vehicle selection for large vehicles

    Please allow configuration of routes that are suitable for large vehicles and campers. We have a toy hauler that is 40ft long so with our dually and trailer we’re over 50ft long and very tall like at least 12ft tall. We use Waze for all our navigation. For our recent trip Waze has taken us in very tight spots such as low lines and very narrow roads. It’s been awful for our vacation trip. Please fix

  10. add the criterion "simplicity of the route" and an option of chosing the simples route

    add the criterion "simplicity of the route" based on the number of crossings, turns, etc., and an option of chosing the simples route

    but currently the choice of three routes does not work at all: just yesterday the service have permanently ignored my choice instead trying to drive me over the route it considered shorter, despite my other choice. No option to complaine to this on the site.

  11. End route at end of closed segments

    When the destination would end on a segment that is currently closed the route ends on the next closest segment (that isn't closed) which in many cases is a road in the back of the property where there's no access to the destination.

    Consider ending the route at the last node that is not closed on the route - at the node the closure ends/starts.

  12. Provide Cost for Dynamic Toll Roads

    When a suggested route includes a toll that has flexible prices based on other factors, please provide the cost for the toll for that route. For example, in and around Washington, DC, there are several toll roads that have flexible prices based on traffic, time of day, etc. It would be useful when selecting when to use a route with one of those tolls if Waze could provide us the amount we will be charged for the suggested route.

  13. Possibility to tick an avoid country lanes box

    Overview routes are only general. A button to tick "Avoid country lanes/no name lanes) would be so useful to not go in circles, trying to find a better route towards a location. It's not always possible to avoid country lanes, but most of the times/most of the route can be at least on B roads.

  14. Save the route for the way back from a location and also to use it other time

    Possibility to save the route for the way back home from a location or to use it again other time. Many times waze guides you back on a longer/country lanes route.

  15. Avoid road

    While following a itinerary, have a option inside the “report” button called “my road” which bring back the current map but let you “highlight” with your finger a road you want to avoid, is the option just for this trip, for similar trip, or similar time, or always.
    When making a new itinerary the system will then ask “this include the road you want to avoid, do you want to include it ?”

  16. New different possible routes interface now not user friendly

    The previous way to recheck the possible different routes was way more user friendly. When the options were in list form, with one glance we could see the different possibilities and as well as details for each of those routes. With the new format we only see time to destination and no other info. Please go back to the old format. Change is not always for the better.

  20. Allow the user to keep the route from changing

    Tonight I was driving home with family during the season’s biggest rain storm. Initially Waze set a good route across major freeways that are relatively safe in the rain. Then it suggested a re-route across a windy mountain road (Angeles Crest Highway) instead of the major freeway in order to save only about 2 minutes. Of course I hit No. It kept suggesting other re-routes as well, including driving across older freeways through downtown LA that are prone to flooding, and I hit No again. Each time it would barely save any time to do such re-route. But it would…
