  1. 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…

  2. I'd love to use Waze while commuting on my bicycle. Google Maps has the option to travel by bike.

  3. 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!

  5. 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…

  7. Add More Stops to A Trip

    It's very simple, I use Waze when my family and I travel. We have a newborn and a 3-4 year old. We stop about every hour, like clockwork. If we have a 6 hour drive, I can't add multiple stops. I have to start our drive, then add the first stop, restart the drive and add the second stop, etc. Could we get this updated so we get more than one stop in the trip?

  8. 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 ?”

  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

  11. Traffic Reduction in Neighborhoods

    With the onset of technology and GPS guided directions, it is quite apparent there is grave concern for the safety of home owners on once quiet and less traveled residential roads.

    The number 1 and redundant (and justified, I might add!) complaint is drivers are being directed into populated neighborhoods causing a significant increase in potential risk of accidents.

    In my case, for example, I live on a narrow, twisting dirt/gravel road with countless potholes, and no sidewalks for pedestrians or room for folks on horseback.

    WAZE sends drivers onto this road because it seems, or appears to be a…

  12. 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.

  13. Feature to Avoid Specific Road

    I really do love Waze! You guys are great! But can you PLEASE add an option to avoid specific roads (or steps of a route)? There’s a route that Waze directs me on my commute daily, both ways, that includes 2 roads that are extremely dangerous. I don’t mean difficult intersections or something like that. I mean regularly reported gun violence, car jackings at stop signs/lights, and gang activity. I literally had this map editing option back in the days of printing out mapquest directions… any kind of option would be wonderful! Thank you!

  14. Pause route feature

    Being able to pause the directions would be really nice. On a long drive on a highway I might turn onto a rest stop or to get some gas. Hypotheticalically I might even want to stop to see a giant ball of twine. It would be really nice if I could stop the GPS from freaking out about the wrong turn.
    I generally don't need the GPS to go to the rest stop or to find the gas station, and I don't want a notification to take a break.
    However, being able to pause my directions would be nice as…

  15. UK time restrictions (School Streets)

    Monday to Friday
    No entry between 8am and 9:15am."
    And 2:45pm and 4:00pm."

    There are loads of these signs in hundreds of cities all over the UK especially London. Can't we allow for local map editors to save time based restrictions into the map?

  17. Put locations at top of 'Where To' list at set time and day

    I often do things same time each week. It would be great to have the option to set a time and a day for saved locations.

    This would mean if I open Waze around 5:30pm on any Tuesday or Thursday, (this) item will start at the top of my 'Where To' list.

    This feature would work best in conjunction with a 'Silent' option for each saved location. Since I go to certain places frequently, I already know how to get there.

    Setting a Saved Location to 'Silent' would mean directions are only read aloud to the driver IF THEY DIFFER…

  18. Tow Mode

    I often tow a trailer for work, and use Waze to go everywhere - but often time saving routes will take me down side streets and laneways that are narrow and difficult to navigate with a trailer. Same would apply for touring with a caravan.

    It would be awesome to have a mode that minimizes tight turns, side streets or intersections without traffic lights.

  19. Custom Routes to avoid Major Cities Centers

    This goes to having customized routes, I was driving from the Northeast to SC, this would make me drive through heavily congested areas like NYC and Waze always wants to make me use the GW bridge, which is a horrible route if you have ever driven it. There should be an option to choose less congested routes, example I would choose to use the Verrazano Bridge route that takes me around the city. This should be an option for heavily congested large cities, Wash D.C., Philly, etc...
