  1. For reports such as police ahead, why not allow the not there or still there response go a bit past the report point.

    Quite often, for police reports etc we cannot say whether the incident is still there until we reach the report point and by then the incident confirmation has disappeared. How about allowing the answer past the report point - perhaps for a further half minute or so.

  3. Ghost driver alert

    A new alert would be interesting to have to alert drivers on a specific route that a ghost driver is coming their way and that they should be cautious, maybe telling them to stay in a lane and to reduce their speed.

  4. walking

    I really would like Waze to update their map to compete with googles map. In the fact that your app is missing, walking, biking, bus-transportation and provide route options for avoiding traffic & providing shortest distances. Also possibly for young or esp female walkers, routes that avoid long roads with no business for threat or dangers of avoiding kidnap or harassment on a desolate back roads.

  9. Customize your Waze map!!!

    I suggest that in Waze, in the settings menu and then in map display, you can customize the map...
    Example : Highway in red, Departmental in purple...

    And that the "Map Editor" mode be available at night...

  10. Lock Waze to a chosen route

    When I choose a route, there should be a way to keep Waze from redirecting back to a route I did NOT choose. In Raleigh, NC, 540 has much less traffic and construction than route 1 to interstate 40 when traveling from south of the city to the airport. But Waze keeps directing me back to US 1. I is hugely annoying! I understand there is a crowd-source/traffic-based algorithm, but I should be allowed to choose a different route. I end up following Waze so I don't miss the exit off 540 I orginally wanted.

  14. Rain or heavy rain weather report?

    Hello waze team!

    It would be great if waze could make a new hazard weather report on "raining" or "heavy rain" on the road. I believe it was sort of missing in hazard>weather report section.

    Thank you for hearing me out.

    Keep up the good work waze team!

  15. Improved Google Assistant Integration on Android Auto

    The overall issue with Waze seems to be that the phone app is better built than the Android Auto app, which wouldn't be a problem were it not for the fact that it has led to borderline non-existent communication between the Android Auto version of the Google Assistant and the Android Auto Waze app. This problem leads to two main issues: drivers can't report hazards without taking one of their hands off the wheel and their eyes off the road unless they have a passenger on board, and if the driver uses the Google Assistant to ask for directions the…

  17. Speed limit and gps speed widgets

    Would be very helpful to be able to increase the size of the widgets and select where the display them. I only have a 7 inch screen and cannot see them. Widgets should be on driver's side not passenger side.

  18. Please give the ability to turn off the "carpool" button

    The carpool button is the bane of my Waze existence. Whenever I pick up my phone from the little pocket area in the car and Waze is running, it triggers this "carpool" button. Then it takes both hands to swipe from the far left side of the screen to make it go away. I won't ever use the carpool function and would love to be able to hide it and stop this from happening. I know it sounds trivial, but it's maddening to deal with.

  19. Bottom Bar.

    The bar at the bottom that has search and carpool need to have a button to turn it off. It is not needed while driving and when on my motorcycle and my phone is turned on its side the bar takes up over half my screen making it impossible to see the map.

  20. Weather Overlay Option

    Have a real-time weather overlay you can opt to turn on or turn off. This will help others see the weather ahead of their planned route. Let's make this happen Waze!
