  1. Option to DISABLE auto-return to "Me on map"

    If the map is centered on a position far from my current location, the client returns to me on map after a few seconds. This is good only some of the time. If I'm PURPOSELY panning on the map, then the client SHOULD NOT return to me on map. This is just plain annoying, and requires me to pan back to the location that I was just examining.

  3. On map edit, turn speed camera image 180 degrees

    The current solution where we put the red dot in the direction BEHIND the camera to set camera direction, the image indicating the direction of the lens is backwards. Perhaps turn the image 180 degrees? It adds a lot of confusion...

  4. More comprehensive directions

    Waze should be able to give more detailed and frequent directions, perhaps as a selectable option (e.g. regular "keep left/right and go straight for the next __ metres" reminders, or more frequent "turn left in __ metres" instructions every 50m rather than 100m/200m).

    In one experience, the road I was travelling on split to two separate but parallel lanes, and because Waze didn't mention anything I ended up taking the wrong path. A more frequent reminder to keep left/right would have avoided this.

    tl;dr make Waze more talkative.

  8. Add vertical slide feature (navigate / traffic report like)

    There are already 2 slide options.
    1- If you click the Menu button and slide from left-right you activate the 'Navigate' command
    2- If you click the Report button and slide from right-left you activate the 'Traffic report' command

    What if you implement more 2 slide options, but now vertical (up-down) ?
    The actions could be customized by the Wazers or assign a fixed command, for example

    3- If you click the Menu button and slide from down-up you activate the 'Add a stop' command
    4- If you click the Report button and slide from right-left you activate the 'Checkin…

  10. Have more categories for landmarks.

    One example is Golf Course (and it would be great if it is shows up as green on the maps)

    Another is Construction Zone. Users can identify construction zone in the map editor to warn other user (especially those who are not familiar to the area) of potential heavy vehicles entering and exiting the construction site (a more permanent thing instead of having to report it daily)

  11. It would be nice to have a map on the client that shows the colorful streets according to the average speed obtained thanks to all the GPS

    It would be nice to have a map on the client that shows the colorful streets according to the average speed of road segments obtained thanks to all the GPS as the live map on the website: yellow above 45 km / h, marron between 45 and 20 km / h, white below 25 km / h, so as to also choose myself the way and everyway understand what type of road is at a glance!

    maybe you could also make sure that the streets are set automatically (only minor, the primary and streets) coloring itself according to Vmedia ..…

  12. An optional (client enable/disable) markup of the roads (color/number), depending on last time another Wazer drove that very road.

    I would like an optional (client enable/disable) markup of the roads (color/number), depending on last time another Wazer drove that very road.

    With a "heavier" markup based on the time passed and/or the number of Wazers.

    Reason: that way one could get an idea of how accurate congestion reports are and for example how likely a new police speed control has been setup, since a Wazer drove by. If I see two or three Wazers ahead on the road and no indications of police radar/laser, it should be pretty safe. However, an hour of no one passing and I'm the…

  14. 911 option in app on iOS (to report accident)

    I was stuck in traffic today and while stopped I witnessed an accident in the opposite direction involving a motorcycle - I closed the app to call 911 but traffic in my direction started moving before I could post update to map. I was wondering if maybe their is a way to report an accident through waze and maybe even have it automatically post a map update for other users to see (ie - using waze to call 911 would post a flag at that location as an accident)?

  16. Ability to declare a suggested route bad

    Sometimes Waze suggests routes that are so bad as to be cringe worthy. It would be nice to to be able to report them for review.

  17. Abbreviations

    use abbreviations for hazzards B (breakdown recovery), T (Tire Debris) R (Road works) F (Fog) etc
    Also for Police Alert, in MA police are required for road works so it is not a speed trap

  18. crash recovery

    Better crash recovery, if im recording a route and the client crashes for any reason it would be good if when it was restarted it continued from where it left off. Currently it forgets the route.

  19. Add a softkey to take screenshot

    In Android you have to simultaneously press [Low Volume] + [Power] in order to take a screenshot.
    If you are driving this is not possible and even if you are a passenger it is not practical.
    It would be great a soft-key was created in the map (like the zoom commands).

  20. Road hazards

    Have the option to dismiss users postings. Say if a disabled car is no longer there. Or if a cop isnt there or theres no longer traffic issues jams ect. Add a buttong to be able to dismiss any and all. I know it pops up for disabled cars once in a while. But make it for all things posted. Cause i notice some people post things just to get points that are not even there.
