  1. Taxi

    I use waze for cab rides as I don't own a car. It would be great to include the "find a taxi app" in waze.

  2. Add mood icon to Drive sharing

    I love to send my family my route when I'm commuting home. But the icon is always the "smiling face", even when i'm stuck in traffic. Couldn't the "mood" icon be shared along with the driving route?

  6. Roles for Wazers

    Suggestion: I'd like to see users be able to select 'roles' so some users can be 'law enforcement' and others can be Dept of Transportation and such. This would require some type of 'vetting' by either using an official email or by requiring users to receive a minimum # of matching alerts (police roadside) at the same location as a wazer who has selected 'law enforcement). I have a number of cop friends who would love to be able to use waze while on duty and the public know where they are. I suspect this would also give other government…

    Hi, i have a wish for a new function. I had an experience and it pop up then. I had a flat tyre and need a bottle of fix spray.

    Ps. By the way I love your app, and just find the function to send a pick up SMS where to pick up. Wow! Super!

  8. Driving contact location would be nice.

    My wife is a waze and I see that she is driving now but I can not locate her anywhere on the route she is taking. A quick like to show her present location would be nice. You never know when your going to have to drive to pick her up cuz she broke down somewhere along the way.

  9. Sometimes screen gets grayed out after some alert pops up and I become unable to tap and move the map

    When an alert pops up, the map gets grayed out, and after it closes out, sometimes the map stays grayed out forever, so it is inaccessible and I cannot scroll it to see the route ahead. The only way of fixing this is by closing Waze, removing the running app from the memory and opening Waze again, and then it needs to recalculate the route.

  10. Allow the same place to be set as HOME and WORK

    I (and I guess several other waze users) work and live at the same building/address. Home office or shared use, it doesn't matter. There could be an option to set them as the same place.

  12. I am a cyclist, and a Wazer. My phone is on, and on GPS, while I ride. How about reporting ME as a hazard?

    When I ride, my phone runs several GPS apps tracking my cycling from an athletic perspective. I have Waze too, and Waze allows reporting hazards on the shoulder... how about an exercise mode for Waze that reports ME as a hazard, on the shoulder, automatically, every minute or few minutes?

    I got the idea from a UK GPS that somehow warns of cyclists ahead. Waze is crowdsourced, it just needs a mode to support it. A screenshot of that can be seen at http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02634/ProNav-PNN420-_2634062c.jpg

  14. add prompt to go straight at intersection

    at the moment, the default navigation of waze says nothing when you're supposed to go straight through an intersection. this is problematic in cases where after a long straight there are two intersections closely after one another and sometimes it is tough to guess how many '800/400/200metres' actually are, so you end up turning one turn too soon.

  15. Expose detailed route data on Web dashboard

    It'd be great to have specific route times-of-day - not just duration. It would be very useful to compare routes, or the same route, over the course of the day. Perhaps I could learn when would be the best time to start my commute.

  16. Change the way Waze avoids tolls

    Waze does not work well to route to locations that require a toll if you have the avoid tolls setting on.

    My current understanding is that waze chooses the route with the fewest segments marked as toll segments. Instead it should count a continuous segment without exits or intersections as one toll and choose the fastest route.

  18. Connecting my iPad to the network via an external 3G modem and a wifi link, WAZE does not see the network. Hence WAZE could not communicate.

    Connecting my iPad to the network via an external 3G modem and a wifi link, WAZE does not see the network. Hence WAZE could not communicate, whereas the internet connection is available.
    Can you fix this ?

  19. Day / Night detemination in New Zealand

    Day / Night / Auto mode observation: I am in New Zealand. I have noticed that the waze iOS app thinks that it is night time until 12noon when Waze suddenly realises that it is the middle of the day and that it should really be displaying day time mode.
    This suggests to me that the algorithm associated with determining day/night time is not properly considering timezones.
    The apps should be taking local time, and only local time to determine day/night mode. And allowinging in sunride/sunset should be region sensitive.

    The fact that it currently changes at 12noon does suggest…
