  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Please open Carpool for Guatemala to reduce traffic

    Please open Carpool for Guatemala to reduce traffic

    Great benefits to bring Carpool to Guatemala: -

    - Reduce the amount of cars on the road during peak hour traffic (4 am-10am) and (4pm-9pm). At this time, it is blocked to the network and can take up to 3 hours to enter and leave the capital (Guatemala City)
    - Car ownership is prohibitively expensive
    - Public transport is risky and not reliable.
    - be environmentally conscious of the earth because they are more economical people in movement

    Help our little Country to be better and more responsible. Help to bring Waze…

  4. Remove Chit-Chat option for Iranian users

    The Iranian people use this option for political purposes and insult to each other and racism. This has led Iran's government to ban this great app in the country.

  5. public transport services

    Please consider the public transport services as a transit option to waze users community (rail services as a metropolitan “backbone” mobility solution for congestion).

  6. דיווח שריפות

    הוספת פיצ'ר לדיווח על שריפות (בשמורות טבע למשל, עבור מטיילים) . הפיצ' ר יעביר את הדיווח למכבי האש. רלוונטי לדיווח מהיר על מקרי הצתה, בלוני תבערה וכדומה. צמצום זמן התגובה של מכבי האש הוא בעל ערך עצום לצמצום נזקי השריפה.

    Adding a feature for reporting incidents of arson in nature reserves. The feature will notify the firefighters and share the direct location.

  7. PTT Comunication

    It would be great to add PTT type communication to go on the road and communicate if a big family goes in different vehicles. This work has been done by the Zello App for a long time, but it would not be bad to add that function to Waze natively.

  8. Integrate Amazon Music app

    Spotify is nicely integrated into the waze phone app. It would be nice to also add Amazon Music app for those that don't use Spotify.

  9. Fix the gas price functionality by adding additional shortcuts to update gas station prices and automatically remove old data

    The current method of adding gas prices is apparently too hard for many Wazers to find. Editors are constantly receiving PURs regarding incorrect and out of date gas prices. I have three recommendations for where to add a shortcut:

    1. Add a button to the page that shows all of the gas stations near your location.
    2. Add a button on the gas station's info page right below the listed prices.
    3. If a user is located within the gas station area, give a popup (like when Waze detects a traffic jam).

    The gas station price functionality has the potential…

  11. "EV Charging" instead of "Gas Stations"

    You can already tell Waze that you're driving an electric vehicle... so why do I still see "gas stations" as an option? Google Maps already has EV charging station POIs - let us select "EV Charging" instead of "gas stations"!

  13. Biker & Rollerblader Safety/Warnings

    Approximately 20,000 cyclists are injured each year on the road and about 20% of those accidents result in serious injury or death. Waze can put an end to this by providing drivers with the awareness they need to avoid such tragedies. Bikers, rollerbladers, and street commuters of all types can simply make their gps location available. Waze drivers will then get alerts just like “Car stopped on shoulder ahead” but for bikers and skaters. I have personally had a few close calls with drivers pulling out onto the road and nearly hitting me because they’re instinctively only looking for large…

  16. Android Auto - Use Car Antenna

    Right now, when connecting to Android Auto, Waze still uses the phone GPS antenna. In comparison, Google Maps pulls the location from the headset/car antenna, which is often placed optimally to maximize GPS signal strength from within the car.

    Please set Waze to use the car's GPS antenna when connected via Android Auto

  18. Markiplier Waze Voice

    Markiplier has one of the most soothing voices out there, and directions from that would every car ride a blast. Bonus points if he freaks out whenever you miss an exit.
