  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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. "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".

    Thanks!

  6. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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!

  10. Warn drivers that attempt changing the name of a place.

    Recently I have seen (and rejected) many name changes on places where people attempt to change the name to one they would like to see as a shortcut name in their destinations.
    Waze should warn them when they attempt to change the name of any place and provide an option to properly nickname a routing destination without changing the name everyone sees.
    I usually send them a message via Chat when this happens and reject their changes, but it would be better if Waze did the warning .

  13. Large boxes at bottom left and right for "not there" and "still there" options rather than small buttons to make them easier to press

    I often miss the buttons with my finger as they're too small on bumpy roads. Also, enable Google assistant commands "Hey Google, still there" or "hey Google, not there" to save having to press the buttons at all. Much safer whilst driving.

  14. Proposal to Add Support for Samsung Color Palette

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to submit a suggestion regarding the improvement of our Waze and I would appreciate your input on this matter.

    Currently, our application does not support the Samsung color palette, which means the application icon is not displayed correctly on Samsung devices equipped with the latest color customization technology.

    I propose that we add support for the Samsung color palette in our application to ensure a consistent and optimal visual experience for all our users, regardless of their device brand.

    By adding this feature, we could provide better integration with Samsung devices while ensuring that our…

  15. New option to “add next” addition to “add stop”

    Can you please provide sorting methods for favorite addresses! Sort by name, distance, zipcode? It's so difficult to find anything!!!

    So frustrating to have so many favorites and you can't find it. Please provide a way to organize favorites by name, address, city, or zipcode.

  19. bookmarks order alphabetically

    As a Waze user with many bookmarks (over 20), I'd like the option to easily order them alphabetically. Now I do that manually, but I must be careful when adding a new bookmark.

    Having them ordered alphabetically allows me to find them easily.

    2 UI behaviors can be added:
    - a button in the bookmarks list to make a manual alphabetical order
    - a configuration option to have them always ordered alphabetically (and hide the button above)

  20. Search bar Rework + Favorites Customization

    The search feature feels a little bit messy. Instead of having your recent searches listed under your favorites, let’s add a button for recent searches, just like the buttons for gas, food, etc. Next, Instead of having only your work and home favorites listed, let’s list all of your favorite places under the search bar. You can also add the ability to customize your other favorites with icons similar to work and home. A school icon would be very popular, and adding a boy or a girl icon for a friend’s house could be useful. You could also add other…
