  2. Let users contribute GPS traces to Open Street Map

    I just don't see why waze hasn't fully embraced www.openstreetmap.org I've been asking since day one for a way to contribute my GPS traces to both waze and Open Street Map but my suggestion has been ignored so far. I think waze, Open Street Map and the community would all win if this collaboration happened. See http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225/suggestions/982979 for the cartouche suggestion.

    as cougar mentioned, this is already possible under the archive of the edit map (cartouche). If you are not sure how to do this, please write to us – alpha@waze.com – and we will explain more

  5. "display off" mode

    I'm driving a motorbike and I'm generally wazing to update map and / or inform the other wazers about the traffic on the road. So, my phone is in my pocket... It would be great if Waze could do that with the display of my phone off...

  6. more screenspace ahead of the car in 2D mode

    while driving in fixed North=up mode and in landscape the client could position the car/current location icon so that there would be more screenspace (and thus more useful information) ahead and less space (and thus much less useful information) behind the car

    I believe this was resolved in Version 2.2. There’s more screenspace ahead while in navigation.

  7. Post weather reports

    Torrential rain, ice, tornado etc etc would all be useful information for other Wazers, just like Traffic Jams or accidents are. Can we have a quick weather report like moods with a limited validity time please?

    weather hazards were added to the ‘hazard’ category in version 2.2. Drive safely!

  8. Remove mood icon from road reports

    Have you ever changed a mood icon when making a road report? Do you think it is useful to know that someone is angry when the post a traffic jam? This feature takes up room that could be used for other options such as editable quick texts that could be used to enhance road reports.

  10. Waze Joyride - Plan cookie munching trip

    Instead of navigating from A to B, can I plan a circular route with as much cookie munching as possible? My regular commute no longer suggests new routes, but I'd like to explore the area and have say a 30 min trip validating as many roads as possible.

    This is available – in the route settings, you can choose ‘prefer cookie munching’. This will make the route a bit longer, but will include more road munching, where available.

  11. Enable street numbering through iPhone client

    Although the tutorial and online docs mention the ability to mark street numbers through the waze client using GPS, this is not available on iPhone.

    It is available – go to ‘report’ >> ‘map update’ >> ‘update house numbers’

    Note: you can only update a house number for your current location. You can’t add house numbers to a different location.

  12. chit-chat posts to Twitter

    It would be nice to be able to turn off the ability to post Chit-Chats to Twitter. I want to be able to report all the road conditions, but I don't feel my chats should go to Twitter and clutter it up more so.

  13. Cancel traffic report due to bad GPS signal

    Occasionally the client automatically creates a traffic load report (due to bad GPS signal?), even though the traffic is flowing freely. It would be nice to be able to cancel such a report.

    You can cancel a report that you have sent. You need to view this event from the list view (after pressing the ! with the events number next to it).
    Then choose to show the options for this report, and ask to delete it.

  14. Show username if nickname is empty.

    If you choose to display your name and the 'Nickname' field is empty, you are still Anonymous. The username should be shown by default in this case.

    From version 2.1 and on, nickname cannot be empty, and it is defaulted to the user name.

  15. Show current scale on screen (cm long line with how many meters it is).

    Sometimes it is hard to know if a juction is a km away or just 50 meters, specially if you're only showing map without any guidance. Autoscale makes this even more difficult.

    Search is now limited by radius from current location. When the current location is unknown, it is based on last known location.

  17. Make the top choice on the main 'Drive To' screen be your last chosen location.

    Whether it's because I cancelled navigation or, much more likely, the server erred out when routing, I constantly need to choose the same location as the last one I chose. If it was three or four pages down on my 'Saved Locations' page this can be quite a hassle—and a bit dangerous—to do while driving.

    I'd propose that when you press the 'Drive To' button the top choice on the list is whatever the last location chosen was until that destination is reached.

  18. Autozoom depending from speed

    I like to have an autozoom depending from my travel speed that shows me a big area when driving fast and a detailed area when driving slow e.g. in the city.

    while we still need to improve this a bit (work on special scenarios that involve ramps and other special road types), the issue should be fixed. If you still notice problems with it, please writ to alpha@waze.com

  20. Share destination with anoter waser

    It coulb be interesting to add a "share destination" function. You send your destination to your friend and you could see how many km they have to do, when they will arrived etc.
