  3. Allow the user to select their preferred default search

    This should be easy to add to the Waze iPhone app. All I want is a user selectable default search setting. I'm usually searching for an address when I use waze and it defaults to my contacts always which is annoying. Others might prefer yelp, or contacts, whatever.

  5. Auto-Replay Messages, when in use...

    I have. Razr Maxx, and everytime I drive the Smart Actions, auto answer the SMS, but only replay the SMS... A very good option for Waze, will be Auto-Replay messages from Viver, What'sApp, e-Mail, etc.

  7. add a parameter for choise a for mode orientation

    Add a parameter for choise a orientation manualy of the device, and not set with the gyroscope.
    I propose :
    Automaticaly => giroscope
    Landscape => manual
    ReverseLandscape => manual
    Portrait => manual

    its better for choise for user :)

  8. Better direction instructions - instead of current wayfinder segment work-aound

    Wayfinder segments (‘street’ > ‘direction’) look like a pure workaround to me and for good reasons they are primarily used for ramps entering a freeway or at freeway intersections.

    For intersections within a city or other non freeway roads outside of cities there is no satisfying solution as the street name often is NOT the best navigation instruction.

    This is a critical issue in countries like Germany where “smaller” roads often are neither known by their numbers nor by their street names.

    A “new” „wayfinder“ feature should not miss-use the semantics of the street name field.
    Instead we should have…

  11. Update this with a real GPS view map!

    Love this app but can't fully replace my gps navigator with it just yet. I do a lot of deliveries and when driving without navigation, a real GPS device will say on the top of the screen upcoming street also if u are somewhere and don't know where u touch your vehicle it shows u the closest address by u. This is a safety feature... Please add! This app only gives u the hundred block

  14. Navigation enhancement

    For navigation when you type in address that you have inputed before there should be a way of selecting it (auto fill) such as the mapquest iphone app instead of the need to type the whole thing over again.

  15. Self accident(by impact) detection and reporting automaticaly

    Some(maybe many) lives could be saved if Waze could detect accident situation with its user.

    It would listen to phone's accelerometer and after huge amplitude of indices form phone accelerometer and rapid, complete stop/non acceleration for about minute, it could ask user/driver for response.

    If driver is not responding on phones flashing/signaling/dialog on screen, then big chance that driver is in trouble and Waze could send signal of SOS to closest users and even to local administrators to check out situation. Maybe this feature could be used by local 911/112 as well. If not for immediate rescue then for locating…

  16. Be able to view a summary list of delays and congestion

    Have a menu option to be able to view at a glance the delays and congestion on your route. Whilst it's ok to see there are delays on the "Go" screen you can't easily tell where they are or how they will affect you.

  18. Please don't have case sensitive usernames

    While I understand that security is a good thing, and this does arguably make the system slightly safer by increasing the username space, it also provides usability problems: Specifically for users who create their accounts while using their phones, which often automatically uppercase the first letter of any text (IE exactly what happened to me)

  19. Better live updates - ETA not very accurate at beginning of drive - traffic conditions (jams) do not show

    using Waze for a long time - but it still bugs me when I am stuck in traffic that the road shows up as clear and not in the appropriate color. Also, ETA is way off at beginning of drive, because Waze doesn't calculate the rush hour/construction traffic correct. Today is was off by 10 minutes (on a 30 minute drive originally)

  20. Simplify UI for lite users

    I know this may seem like a facepalm moment for many users, but trust me, I have friends out there who have given me feedback that Waze is 'too complicated' and find Google Navigation far simpler. I see one option is the first screen could ask 'Would you like to "Enter a Destination" or "Just drive around"?' just to make the first impression simpler.

    Other tweaks could also be made for our tech-not-so-savvy users. This could have a major impact on retaining users.
