  1. Having always the same zoom level selected by default to view the map

    Having always the same zoom level selected by default to view the map, not the default zoom level imposed by Waze. In this case, I can very rapidly analyze the Waze screen on my mobile without 'eye and brain adaptation'. More safe for driving.

  2. Driving to catch a flight

    Imagine you are off on holiday. Perhaps hiring a car to drive to your destination after catching a flight. You could put your ultimate destination in to Waze and the airport / flight you are going to take.

    Waze could keep you up to date on your departure while you're driving to the airport. (and advise on a departure time from your origin). It can update your friends of your progress.

    It could keep your ETA up to date with your friends by cross-referencing the flight information and expected arrival time. (It could probably show your approx location based on…

  3. report of a gross navigation mistake

    In driving north from beit shean, Israel, to Katzrin, waze constantly tried to direct me to go through the 65, instead of directly through the 90, even when I try alternate routes. This added a half hour. Its an obvious bug. Its happening ng now.

  4. Problem pushing directions bluetooth from android to car speakers

    Waze has been my fav for a long time because it pushed spoken directions from all my iPhones to the car speakers via bluetooth. It seemed to do this by tricking my radio (Kenwood) into thinking a call was coming through. Pretty crafty. But since the latest iPhone update that messed up other things regarding bluetooth, Ive gotten an android phone. Now the waze app on android won't push spoken directions to the car speakers when the radio is set on (radio). It seems like a big safety issue since when in the car its hard to hear the little…

  5. Save and later upload client data for areas with limited cell and/or Wi-Fi only users.

    The amount of data saved currently is insufficient to allow mapping of vast rural areas. Saving this data when storage is available and later uploading will speed the completion of your goals.

  6. Petrol station prices

    I use this app every day http://itunes.apple.com/it/app/prezzi-benzina/id373044013?mt=8 to find a the best petrol station in terms of price.
    From my point of view, this app should be integrated in Waze.

    How about adding an icon that allows us to mark known speed traps in our area even if we are not driving by at a particular moment? It could be a picture of a radar gun. Also, don't allow a single user to remove a police icon. It's too easy for the police to click "not there" themselves on a dummy account and it disappears.

  8. Change Minor/Major Accident to Minor/Major .

  9. Use acceleration sensors to improve navigation

    I think it will be good idea to use acceleration sensors to improve navigation when GPS signal is weak. For example in tunnels. Also it may help in situation when GPS accuracy is insufficient. For example to better determination of position in roundabout.

  11. Hide bottom toolbar on iPhone

    The toolbar on the bottom (drive to, report etc.) should be hidden when in navigation mode to help use up the entire iPhone screen. On screen tap the toolbar can pop back up to access these tools. I just don't think the iPhone screen is large enough to keep that toolbar there at all times. Maybe a setting could enable this auto-hide feature while some people may like it to be shown all the time.

  12. Add integration with Geocaching.com

    Add the ability to automaticly find caches along a route. A feature to get the most caches AND Waze points in X number of miles driven would be a fun driving adventure.

  13. Color/Icon for landmarks

    It would be great to make different colors for different classes of landmark. Or to use scale-independent icons for (for example) gas stations.

    I cannot visually separate the supermarket and it's parking.

  14. Calculate fuel consumption and show cost of the route

    It would be great to be able to enter the average fuel consumption for certain speeds for your vehicle and then while calculating show also the cost of the route. It can be calculated by known speeds on the road, the need to stop and go on traffic lights, the overall profile of the route. There is an iPhone app that can serve as an inspiration - http://drivegain.com

  15. Add intelligence to traffic jam detection

    Often users parked will cause a false traffic jam to be reported, yet when stuck in traffic it is usual to be crawling or moving occasionally.

    When Waze detects traffic conditions and pops up the question of whether you are in traffic please change the default response dependant on whether the vehicle has been moving or not. If it has been totally stationary please set default response to 'No' as in a total traffic jam the driver will most likely spot the dialogue, only use 'Yes' as the default action when there has been some movement which is much more…

  16. Push notifications to get to a destination at a selectable time

    This feature allows users to schedule trips and receive push notifications about what time they should leave. That would make everyday trips like home-office/office-home more efficient.

  17. Event notification pop-up.

    Current event notification covers the majority of the center screen, obstructing view of where the event is specifically located. Adding transparency or moving to a ticker at the top or bottom of screen would be a great improvement.

  18. Ability to say 'dont send me this way again' for dangerous turns or bad neighborhoods.

    I live in a big city with a long commute and many options to to my destinations. Sometimes the way Waze sends me around traffic is dangerous (i.e. Turning left onto a 5 lane, busy highway just to immediately turn right, or through high crime areas). An option to indicate unsafe guidance and not to suggest it again would be great.

  19. Location Photos

    Why, when I take a picture of the location I'm at (as Waze suggests I do to help other users identify this location) does that photo NOT save itself? Everyday I'm asked to RE-take the photo of my home and work. The feature isn't working on my Galaxy S5 and I'd love to see it stop asking me to take a photo everyday when I've already done it a number of times!
