  1. Ability to disable features

    Give users ability to disable/opt-out of CarPool. I drive for work, and cannot have passengers, but frequently have navigation blocked by the "Carpool" screen when adjusting my phone in the holder / accidental contact with right side of screen.

  2. The size of the speed limit display

    Larger and easier to read speed limit indicator. The current speed indication is small and hard to read.

  3. keep directions on the screen

    Using Waze is for directions of not knowing where to go so I think you need to go back to the small alerts on the screen instead of taking up the directions spot and having them disappear. It’s very frustrating trying to find your way through a city you’ve never driven in before when the directions keep disappearing to alert you that there’s a car on the side of the road.

  4. Speedometer size

    The speedometer size and placement should be a user setting. Along with Apple Watch app that displays the current speed and vibrates when over the speed limit threshold.

  5. Carpool

    Have a setting in ‘settings’ to turn off Carpool if you don’t use it. It’s a high annoyance to have to flip that page out of your way every day. I honestly don’t know anyone that carpools.

  6. Please, Please Stop The Waze Carpool Popup! It’s so dangerous! The Carpool Popups has almost gotten me into several accidents.

    Please, before someone gets killed! Please put the Waze Carpool popup in settings for people that are not going to Carpool. Your Stupid Carpool popup has popped up right when a turn is coming up or a route change. The Waze Carpool popup comes up, COVERING MUCH NEEDED INFORMATION JUST BEFORE A TURN! I have to quickly react and swipe the IOS phone to quickly Get Rid Of The Carpool popup so I know which way to turn. While I’m doing that, MY EYES AREN’T ON THE ROAD. Seriously, I’ve almost had two accidents because of Your Stupid Waze Carpool…

  7. One Touch Reports in Car Play / Android Auto - Customizable

    It would be great to have the ability to customize one-touch reports.
    See the attached imgur photo.
    In this case, I made vehicle on shoulder, police, and object on the road as my "One Touch."
    I also added a compass to the navigation bar on the bottom left. (The compass I used is far too busy for Waze.)

  8. Is there a feature that can be built into the Waze app that will alert you to an upcoming speed change

    Could Waze build an alert into its app to alert you to an upcoming speed change, to help you decrease your speed. it would help to keep you from exceeding the speed limit.

  10. Blocking edits when has unread PM

    Editors would not be able to edit in WME while they have unread PMs. The idea is to get new editors to contact you to receive instructions about wrong edits. Now we send PMs and they ignore and continue to make wrong edits which forces us to block him via CAR to force him to contact the community

  11. Fixed speed circle could be bigger

    Hi. I think the fixed circle that shows the maximum speed of the road on Android Auto could be bigger! Its really difficult for me to see the maximum speed of the road and I need get closer to the car display, what makes it dangerous while driving.
    Thanks.

  13. Speedometer positioning

    Hello users, hello waze team,

    I recently switched to waze since google and Apple Maps just didn’t have enough features.
    While I really like the addition of the speedometer and the speed limit display, I think it would be a great addition to let the user choose in what corner of the screen the speedometer will show. Also, my aftermarket headunit is pretty small and I find it hard to read sometimes, especially because it’s pretty small.
    So why not let the user choose the placement and size of the speedometer?
    In its current state it takes me too long…

  14. Remove permanent "where to" and "my Waze" fields when phone is horizontal.

    I use Waze with my phone in a horizontal/landscape position. All is good if I set a location target and use Waze to guide me to it. But I sometimes I like to see the traffick volume without setting a destination. In this mode, Waze takes up a third of my map display with the "where to" and "my Waze" fields. I should be able to turn those off or they should auto disappear.

  15. Suppress public parking lots unless the destination does not have the "Customer Parking" box checked

    The app far too often shows parking lots illogically, resulting in clutter and confusion. There is no need to show a public parking lot for a destination that has its own lot.

  18. WME road closure history information

    In WME, editors are able to see road segment information and current road closures. At the moment, after road closures end, there is no visibility of what the road closure was in relation to and how long it was set for. This makes it a bit difficult when editors receive URs from road users and are unsure what the issue is related to.

    It would be handy to see historical road closure information on that segment (if it be within the last 30 days or for the life of the segment).

  19. Tabitha Brown

    PLEASE get Tabitha Brown to voice turn by turn directions. Her voice is beyond calming, reassuring, and peaceful. She’s an actress so it wouldn’t be difficult to find her. She’s on IG and TikTok @iamtabithabrown. You can find her on Facebook under her name. THIS WOULD BRING WOULD RESULT IN THOUSANDS, IF NOT, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of downloads.

    P.S. if you need help finding things the culture would appreciate and get behind, bring me on board. I gave you Tabitha for free.

  20. Offset turn instruction

    Oftentimes at standard, perpendicular intersections, streets dead-end on one side and pick up again on the other side, offset by just a few dozen feet. For simplicity's sake and for routing, we map a lot of these as plain four-way intersections (like an italicized + sign, you could say).

    But this can be confusing for drivers, who arrive at the intersection with no special instruction and yet are forced to almost fully turn right or left. The simple four-way mapping style is appropriate when the offset would still allow a car's width to pass through without turning, but when there…
