  1. A way the app utilizes the contact list better, currently it doesn't find some of my contacts. I would have to manually enter the address.

    I tried putting in several different ways to my location which was a daycare. My contact which stated daycare would not pull up even if i specifically have it look in contacts. As well as when i entered the name of the daycare it pulls up a location several hundred miles away, when the closest one was 3 miles

  2. To add an option to turn off the GPS functionality when not using Waze to help save battery life.

    To help save on battery on battery life, it would help if there was an easy option to turn off the GPS functionality when not using Waze. The GPS function could come back on once the Waze app is re-opened. I have noticed my phone battery is going down much more quickly since installing the Waze app. I understand that's an issue when using it, but it would be nice not to have to worry about it when I am not using the Waze app at a particular time.

  4. Search function in languages which use punctuated characters

    Search function in languages which use punctuated characters (like Greek, Serbian or Frence, to name a few) should be more flexible and produce results regardless of correct punctuation.

    For example by typing: "Ορμυλιας" in search box should produce "Ορμυλίας" as a result even though punctuation was not typed correctly.

    One step further, in languages using a different character set like Greek, it is quite easy to convert Greek to Latin characters so for example an international tourist typing "Ormilias" in search box should get "Ορμυλίας" as a result instead of nothing. It is the way other GPS apps work.

    Please…

  6. Related to battery life/forgetting to turn off the app. Allow a setting to disable the gps function when on battery for X minutes

    I know there is a menu option to turn off the app, but it's easy to forget especially when you get to your destination and want to get out of the car in a hurry. Let the user decide how long he wants the app to run when on battery...then turn off the gps and do a popup allowing the user to turn the gps back on

    Hallo, I'm an Italian "very young" Wazer and I have a suggestion: to make Waze warn us ALWAYS when exceeding speed limits , regardless of the proximity of a camera. It could be possibly done by changing the colour of the speed icon (i.e., for example from gray to yellow and then red) to make the message very intuitive , without compel us to distract to read the small numbers on the icon.
    Thanks.

  11. Use Google maps as a fallback if an address is not found on Waze

    Many times I am unable to find a destination using the search function in Waze. Google Maps never has a problem finding the same locations.

    So my suggestion is: why not query Google maps for the GPS co-ordinate and then route the user to those co-ordinates?

    I realize this might not work 100% of the time, but it will work at least 90% of the time, which is better than the current state of affairs - where addresses with street numbers in them only work about 5% of the time.

  13. Invisible icon for privacy

    If I forget to turn off the app or a kid turns it on, my location is being shared for hours or possibly days without me knowing. Huge privacy concerns there- please allow me to make myself invisible on the map.

  15. Temporary HOV/Carpool lanes

    If I'm in a 2+ vehicle, it would be nice if a route preferred HOV lanes. In my area, there is a "temporary" HOV lane which has a different direction in morning and evening. (See US-93 between Boston and Braintree MA)

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze offers HOV routing for taxis. To change your vehicle type go to Settings > Vehicle type. There are currently no plans to add more HOV options.

    By default compass is displayed on screen tap.
    To always show it go to Settings – Map display – Quick access – Always show. In Map display settings it is also possible to lock North.

  18. Put a report button on the main screen of the Android UI

    The iPhone UI has a report button on the main screen... why make Android users go through the extra step of hitting Menu before going to the reporting screen? I would love to see a "report" button somewhere on the screen so it's one press, no fumbling around for the menu button.

    An idea would be to place the reporting button to the right of the user icon at the top of the title bar. There's quite a bit of unused space between that icon and the GPS/internet status icon.
