  3. please use google fused location and google cloud messaging services to improve battery life on android

    please use google fused location and google cloud messaging services to improve battery life on android.

    instead of looking for network location every time, why don't waze use the already provided location by google fused location services. this will improve battery life. tested on old and new google maps, fused location really does it magic improving battery life with location report on for google now app.

  4. Show "merge" when road name changes

    Some paths go on roads crossing city boundaries and the road changes or the road only goes in one direction but the road name changes, it would be nice to see an arrow with name change.

    Some paths go through a ramp or lane merge that do not show because it is the only path possible, but the name of the road changes, or the direction (turning right since it is the only possible route) which is misleading when you know you have to turn right but Waze says the next turn is left.

  10. Request cancelled webpage with more info

    On follow my drive, if you type in the URL incorrectly, or if the other person turned off waze, you get a "Request Cancelled" message on the web.

    I have an IT background, so I understand the meaning behind "Request cancelled". But most people I know have absolutely no idea what that means.

    The page should say a bit more, in layman's terms. Kind of like a 404 page. For example:

    Sorry, this user's drive is not currently viewable. This could be because of several reasons:

    1. Check your URL. Maybe you mistyped it?

    2. The user is not connected to Waze…

  18. Alerts based on time

    You should calculate how far or how long a Alert stays on the screen based on your speed because if something is a mile away and you're traveling miles an hour config one hour to get to especially if the traffic jam so if you could display something which is like a minute away they sometime be about the much better use of the screen space because something is staying there

  20. Enable/disable "Standby" via slide lock or confirmation pop-up.

    The new "Standby" function is not as friendly as I thought it would be. Lets say you've arrived at your destination and have placed Waze on standby and a few seconds later, you realize that you've got a new destination you want check up on (ETA? Location?) or you just want check your settings...
    ERRR!
    In order to access anything on the Waze app, it will trigger your device's GPS feature and if not mindful, your battery will pay the price (drain!).

    Lie my subject title suggests... a slide-to-confirm standby, ON/OFF button, would be great.
