  1. Mulheres / Women

    Olá!
    Gostei muito da ideia de vocês, com relação ao "Waze Carpool", porém vejo uma situação da qual muitas mulheres ficam incomodadas pela falta de segurança e diversas vezes passo por lugares onde têm ponto de ônibus em que a mulher está sozinha e em alguns casos uma mulher e um ou mais homens, sendo que a mulher fica afastada com receio de algo com relação a este ou o grupo de homens.
    Fui procurar outros aplicativos que trabalham com caronas e até encontrei outro já com disponibilidade de carona apenas com mulheres, tanto a motorista como as passageiras, então…

  2. Is it possible to make waze to where you can put in multiple addresses and it will create the best /fastest route to 3 or 4 addresses?

    Is it possible to make waze to where you can put in multiple addresses and it will create the best /fastest route to 3 or 4 addresses? I'm a realtor and have to take my clients from one address to another, it would be easier to be able to put in multiple addresses and have waze create the best route from one to another. Thank you

    Create an app for the Samsung Galaxy Watch? Or at least integrate the watch into the Android Application so the directions show on the Watch.

  5. Rotate vehicle direction of travel when plotting journey

    Should be able to change direction of travel when plotting route. As a taxi driver I am often asked to quote a journey however waze assumes which way I am facing when plotting the route and this can sometimes add up to 2 miles to a journey. I would like to be able to press on the car icon and rotate it through 180 degrees to face the direction I want so it gives an accurate mileage figure

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    Setting the car’s direction when starting the app and navigation is a known matter which will be addressed in the future.
    There are many complexities in location tracking which cause this issue and hold us from providing a solution.
    It’s currently on the back burner, but definitely a part of the backlog.

  6. Carpool in Norway

    In Norwegian cities, electric cars are allowed to drive in the bus lane when they carry passengers.

    Using Waze to carpool would help congestion.

    Therefore you should enable carpooling in Norway as well :)

    Waze speedometer is reading less than (<8 km/hr) the car speedometer.
    Is there any calibrating feature to correct the speed on the mobile screen display?
    I am sorry, if this is a problem for my own mobile phone.

  8. Count Votes

    How many votes are needed to encourage Waze to improve their app? As far as I can tell, as far back as 2016, people have been requesting and voting for favorites to be alphabetized and yet still nothing? At least a response would help to know if anyone at Waze has even looked into it.

    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.

  10. Burn in Screen

    I am using Waze everyday in my car however; recently I have noted that the waze interface is causing my AMOLED screen to show a shadow screen of waze even while I am in other apps. I was wondering if the waze display screen items location can be changed randomly on an occasional basis to avoid such issues on the phone screens. I informed some of my friends and they found same issue on their phone so we are forced to reduce usage of this app as much as possible to avoid severe damages to our displays. Thanks for your…

    The Report button was designed to be noticed while blending in and it’s important to keep it as is.
    However, we will revisit this idea when working on Dark mode, in the future. Furthermore, since this is a physical issue that OLED phones suffer from in different apps, we recommend to use Battery Saver mode to allow your display some rest from bright colors that might lead to this dysfunction.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram.

  11. Leona Chen - please bring voice back

    When I opened the app today, her voice was gone! Please bring her back. She reminded me of my time in Singapore and in Malaysia. And I really quite miss her!

  12. Select initial driving direction

    Very often Waze starts up navigation facing the wrong driving direction. The direction is rectified as the vehicle starts moving, but it can be too late for the initial turn.

    Please add the ability to switch driving direction when navigation starts, via a button.

    Additionally, Waze should make a better guess at the intial driving direction by using compass data.

  13. Offer a satellite view of the map.

    I like how Google maps gives me the satellite view. Why doesn't Waze do that?

    We will not be adding a satellite layer to the client. Waze is trying to provide the best driving experience which is smooth and simple and provide drivers with the right amount of information needed to get to places. While satellite layer is great to have for exploration and panning “offline”, we don’t think it’s going to benefit drivers on the go that much and therefore we’re not going to move in that direction in the foreseeable future.

  14. PLEASE PAUSE FOR BREAK

    Please give the app a "PAUSE" feature, so that we can stop for gas or food without loosing our route. It would be great if it continued to check the traffic in case something happened while you were taking a break.

  15. Option to keep "battery saver" always on

    Waze has this new "battery saver" feature that dims the screen when there is a long way until the next turn/action. As I understand, currently this feature only kicks in when the battery level is low (<25%). Or you can manually turn it on for a current trip, but it revert to the default behaviour next time you start Waze.

    I suggest to add an option to keep it ALWAYS on. Because I would like to use it all the time... Even if the battery level is not low, I'd like to save it for the rest of the day.…

  17. Limit WAZE ads when turns are coming up

    In an unfamiliar area with many turns, WAZE ads prevent you from seeing where you're supposed to turn, particularly on interstate interchanges where lane selection is important. I keep having to swipe the ad off the map when I should be paying attention to getting into the proper lane. The current ad display is actually unsafe.

  20. Implement burn-in protection for AMOLED-Displays

    Many users of mobiles with AMOLED-Displays report severe burn-in when using Waze on an regular basis.

    Please implement an option to activate a real good working burn-in protection.

    • Switching off (no dimming, the pixels must really be off!) the whole map if nothing interesting must be shown (no speed camera, no car on shoulder, no turn in 1 km or less).

    and

    • Rasterize next-turn bar, speedometer, report button, ETA-bar AND shift them a few pixels once per minute. (BTW: this is normal behavior on smartwatches used with display always-on for years)
