  2. Close Waze and mark parking place on Bluetooth disconnect

    Many cars have Bluetooth, and our phones connect and disconnect automatically on starting and shutting down the car. It can be used as an indication of the drive ending, and optionally closing/sleeping Waze and/or setting the parking place
    I imagine an option stating “On Bluetooth disconnected: Mark parking place on/off - Close/sleep Waze on/off”

  5. 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.

  7. 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 Carpool to Guatemala

    Alternative…

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. "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"!

  11. In honor of White Cane Safety Day, create a alert to drivers that notifies the driver a person using a white cane is ahead.

    A person with a visual impairment can log on to the app and WAZE will track the user as they walk.
    A driver using the app is notified when a person using a white cane is nearby.

  12. To be able to add a place where there is trash to clean

    Hi Waze Team,
    We were looking for a map of places where people drop trash, you know, like on the side of a road with lots of plastic bags for example. Why ? Because we would like to easily organize trashremoval operations with our association to protect the environnement. And we were thinking : what would be better than people just having to push a button on the Waze app to pin point the location of such trashy places ? Is it something you'd be willing to consider ?
    Like me when i see a police control, i signal it…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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 to be much…

  19. Keep Map Orientation in Traffic Circle

    The map in Waze app is always oriented to the direction of the driving. This causes some confusion when you drive through a traffic circle, and the map keeps spinning until you leave the circle.
    I believe that specifically in a traffic circle, when you enter and leave, you should keep the map orientation in the general driving direction and have the arrow spinning, indicating your driving direction.
    This will decrease the confusion and help understand exactly where you are in the circle, and where you need to leave it.

  20. Ability to hide carpool button

    I would like the ability to hide the carpool button. I like the idea of carpooling, but when reporting or checking the app, I sometimes hit the carpool button. It is really distracting when the whole screen is taken up with that.

    I’d like the option to disable carpooling like I can disable alerts or other features.

    It is great, but I’d like the option to hide it when I don’t want to use it.
