  1. Add "Disabled Vehicle" to Windows Phone version

    I have an Android phone at work, and a Windows Phone at home. I use Waze on both as a single user. I was navigating home on Sunday when I watched a vehicle become disabled next to me at a traffic light. Being the good Wazer that I am, I immediately opened my Waze app and pressed on the "REPORT" icon. On my work (Android) phone under "HAZARD", there is an option to identify "Vehicle Stopped". On my Home (Windows) phone version, that option is completing missing. How did this get left off???? Could someone at Waze add it as…

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    As you probably know, some of the voices we feature are promotional, meaning they are only available for a limited time.
    We offer special voices for holidays, events, and just for fun.
    You can use these for the length of the promotion. When the promotion ends, your voice will reset to the default and the voice will no longer appear in the Sound menu.

    We hope that you enjoyed the voice while it was available and can’t wait to share more exciting voices to come!

    Want to try another voice?

    Tap Menu and tap the Settings wheel.
    Tap Voice & sound.
    Tap Voice Language and select the voice you’d like to use.

  4. Allow the ability to specify the location of a report.

    When reporting an issue, crash, traffic jam, fire, Police activity, the system only gives you the option to report on the road you are on. So for example, if you are at an interchange where you can see the activity on a highway or interstate, but you are not on that road, you can't actually report it properly. Maybe it can be set up that you make a report, and like in google maps, you have a pin dropped on the map that you can move to the correct location, if where you are is not the location of the…

  6. Make waze tolerant of intermittent network connectivity

    Waze relies on a network connection when in use. Many areas I drive in have poor or intermittent network connectivity. Please make the Waze client more tolerant of poor network connections by caching more data of the surrounding map and allow journey data (including new roads) to be cached on the client and uploaded at a later time. Not all areas can rely on good 3G/UMTS network connectivity

  7. Hide notifications older than XX hours.

    I've seen reports that are a couple hour up to 24 hours old. It'd be nice to be able to have an option that lets users choose the age limit of notifications they'd like to see.

    Display duration for each notification is directly dependent on number of upvotes and ‘not there’s. The more upvotes a report has, the longer it is displayed on the map and vice versa.

  9. Auto turn screen on/off

    When driving by directions, it would be great if Waze could turn off the screen when there is more than a specified distance to the next turn, and turn the screen on again when I'm within the specified distance.

    We should have the option to set the specified distance to 500m, 1km, 2km, 5km and 10km.

    It would also be nice to have an option to set the screen to turn on for 30 seconds or so if a report within our event radio comes in.

  10. Less ads

    I am having trouble because of the amount of ads coming to my screen. I barely can see the way and I need to touch the phone while driving.

  11. Option to automatically disable WiFi

    When transitioning from WiFi to 3G or vice versa, Waze often loses a connection and becomes useless, requiring us to restart the app. I imagine this would be a problem for anyone who drives by a wireless network that they use often (home, work, school, etc.) This could be avoided by giving the user the option to automatically disable WiFi connections within Waze. This option would prevent users from having to disable WiFi before starting Waze every time.

  13. We can start our own teams.

    Why can't we start our own teams? That way, people have a social way to earn goodies! Also, you could have team races and stuff. For the badge, we could have some options. Please vote for this idea, whether it's 3 votes or 1.

  14. The WP app needs to be updated. Make functional: additional voices, Facebook/friends feature, landscape view.

    The app is great on other devices, but is in need of refinement on WP 8.1. The app does not properly download additional guidance voices (on Terry Crews it stayed at 0 percent for weeks), the social/friends link just goes back to the main Waze screen, the app is locked in vertical position--which is not optimal; and the gas feature (including reporting) doesn't work at all. Ideally, this app should mirror the other devices in terms of functionality--it would be heads and shoulders above the default "Here" app.

  15. windows phone app NEEDS voice command feature!

    Waze is supposed to be hands free, however, for Windows Phone users, there is no voice command feature available! That means it is Not hands free... Please make an update to allow Hands Free Voice Commands available for all users to keep driving safe for everybody.

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    Waze can currently direct your partial walking route when it’s a part of a drive or carpool.
    We are currently not planning on adding walking mode for complete routes.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram

    Not right now  ·  krankyd responded

    This was available in the early stages of waze, but was not successful at all. In areas where parking was needed, the update was not helpful, and was misleading as it’s hard to cancel an existing report.

  18. Add ability to report gas prices with WP

    With WP it's not possible to change/update gas prices.
    So add ability to report gas prices with WP

  20. Please update the WP8 app for better battery usage and overheating

    The new WP8 is very harsh on the battery and overheats the phone like nothing I have ever seen before. Others have complained of this same issue in the reviews section of the Windows Phone Store. Even if the phone is plugged into the car's power source, the Waze app uses the battery faster than it is being charged and the charging just can't keep up. Makes the app impossible to use without draining battery and overheating phone.
