  1. Simplify Wazer and Editor workflow for residential places

    The current method for a wazer to add their home to the map is confusing and creates more work for waze map editors. The workflow for a wazer is similar to this:

    Wazer selects the yellow triangle (if it's displayed on their map)

    Next selects "Place"

    (now it is about to get really confusing)

    Wazer must take a picture

    The next screen says "Select Place" with a text field that says "Enter Place name".

    For a residence, the wazer should not enter a place name. Just below the text field there is apparently a "button" that if tapped will add…

  2. Add information/instructions on when to add a pass

    My suggestion is for the following feature:
    Either:
    Add an information panel when users enter the Toll and HOV passes page for the first time, informing them that adding passes may route them into areas or through restricted roads.
    Or:
    Allow us to add information against each pass/permit, giving the user guidance as to what each pass is for.

    My suggestion solves this problem:
    There is less chance that the user will select a pass/permit that they shouldn’t have due to the misunderstanding of how the pass system works.

    In more words:
    Now that Passes/Permits that users have added to…

  3. Visual Time Based Restrictions in client

    Make TBR visually available for drivers. This will give context on why roads are not being used for routes. Nowadays they appear as regular roads

  4. Shortcuts for Hazard Reports

    When using the Hazard Report feature in Waze I often find that:

    1) I use 1 to 3 reports a LOT more often than any others.

    2) I often find that selecting these hazard icons using the current method is fiddly, dangerous when driving, and slow, resulting in the report being sent late, often about 100 meters or more past the hazard.

    My improvement idea is to add 1 to 3 hazard SHORTCUTS that "slide out" for selection from the existing hazard report icon (yellow triangle) on the FIRST touch, they would then "slide in" again after selection to avoid…

  6. Average speed camera zone - show an icon at the start point

    In Portugal, during last weeks, the competent government entity gave a “gift" to the drives: new average speed cameras on a lot of roads / highways.

    Such type of cameras are new in Portugal, so many URs started to popup on WME where Wazers "complained" about the fact of not being shown an icon of the radar on the APP map.

    Even at the risk of starting to have the map too polluted with icons, like those Wazers, I also think that an icon should be shown in the APP at the start point of the average speed camera.

  8. Add "unlimited speed limit" sign for Germany

    In Germany, 70% of the highways have to actual speed limit. This is currently idicated by no speed limit sign at all. However, this might also mean that the speed limit is unknown.
    Instead, the "unlimited" speed sign could be used that is used in Germany to indicate that no speed limit applies anymore (link to an image: https://www.bussgeldkatalog.org/wp-content/uploads/282.png) This is sign 282.

    This could be easily accomplished by either adding a checkbox to the editor to set that no speed limit applies, but this might requite some engineering.
    An easier solution would be to only update the app…

  9. Add “avoid freeways” to drop down menu on map screen.

    It would be super useful to have the option to avoid freeway’s using the drop down list instead of having to scroll through all the preferences to find it. Especially once you’ve already started driving, and you want to change routes. It’s much more useful than “avoid ferries” when you live in a big city. I have 3 freeways near my home, and when I need to go just a few miles it always wants to put on a freeway just to have me get off one exit later.

  10. Speedometer position

    Please make it so the speedometer can be dragged to a new position on the screen!
    The speedometer being fixed in the bottom left of the phone screen can be an issue depending on where the phone is mounted, the orientation it is mounted, and if the screen is obstructed by the steering wheel for example.

    The 'Leave Later' option should have 5-minute time increments. Most of the time, 15-minute increments is too much.

  12. Battery Saver always on

    Option to have battery saver always-on by default. It's a poor user experience to have to set this manually for EVERY journey for those that want to have the battery as high as practitable before exiting the car and/or save their OLED screens from burning. Not everyone uses a charger in the car. And most phones use OLED screens.

    'Automatically turn on' is there as an option, but it waits for battery to become low before kicking in, which rather defeats the object of saving battery (it's too late if it's already become low!) and meanwile you risk burning the…

  14. Improve Map Display

    A suggestion to improve the main map page:
    Only display the 'next turn' information on the map a mile before the turning. The voice command is activated one mile before the turn, so the turn information should be displayed at this same time. It doesn't make sense to me to have the turn information covering the map for mile after mile (and potentially hours) for no good reason.

  15. Don't automatically start giving directions

    I say where to go, then look at rout and options. But before I can decide the app automatically starts yelling directions loudly (in restaurant it's embarrassing). Google Maps waits untill I press the Start button. Maybe that can be an option setting, I HATE your presumption and being forced!

  16. "Add a stop" by default

    Hi,
    When I click on "Add a stop", I want to add a stop. I don't want to make a "New drive".
    So "Add a stop" button should be active by default instead of "New drive".

  17. Updated alternate route feature.

    My account has been selected to use the updated alternate route feature.

    Based on my experience, the UX/UI of the previous version is much better than the latest, I can easily compare the 3 routes on 1 page, but the updated alternative routes features require scrolling to do the comparison, I will need to remember the routes, total distance, arrival time before scrolling to the 2nd and 3rd route options for comparison and this defeat the purpose of the update?

    Sorry to say that I don't see the benefit of this updated alternate route option.

  19. Name previous trip

    I can remove trip and see info and a couple other selections but can you add ability to name trip- traveling for work I like to immediately put in location I am going to work and then hotel and then airport and leave them sit and ready for quick start later- would be nice to name them making easier/quicker to select from previous trip list, instead of pick based on the address listed that I am terrible at remembering
