  2. CarPlay Dashboard

    With the iOS 13.4, Apple opened up the CarPlay Dashboard to accept 3rd Party Maps instead of Apple Maps. It would be awesome to have Waze replace Apple Maps on the main Dashboard!

  4. Get rid of the "always on screen" search bar

    Get rid of the "always on screen" search bar. It takes almost 1/3 of the screen when using the app on landscape mode without any active route.

  6. Please make the search bar smaller

    Samsung Xcover Pro. Android 10.0 AT&T
    It seems like after the latest update the search bar takes up 1/3 of the screen in a horizontal orientation.
    I understand this minimizes when a destination is added and followed but the app in not always used for point A to B traveling.
    As an example, I use the app everyday for my 10 minute work commute. I don't need directions just police, safety, traffic, etc...
    I believe the search bar should minimize in all modes (once underway) because drivers shouldn't be typing while driving anyway.

  7. Add options to autohide the omnipresent search and mywaze bars

    The latest waze update relocated the transparent search bar to the bottom of the screen above a mywaze bar which on widescreen displays dramatically reduces the vertical height of the map screen; effectively a vast amount of wasted space dedicated to nothing of use during roaming.
    Add an option to auto hide both until a touch gesture brings them back for users who wish to dedicate their screens to an actual useful map not opaque, poorly designed controls utterly wasting vast quantities of screen real estate.

  8. Make the search bar hideable

    Please make the search bar hideable when using Waze but not navigating to a destination. The ability to use "Hey Google" makes this bar unnecessary and the bar drastically reduces the visible map, especially when using the device in landscape mode.

  10. Remove new search bar on Navi screen

    The new search bar on the Navi screen is a huge nuisance as it blocks a sizable portion of the bottom of the screen and block the Arrow/image of where your car is on the road.
    The bar was easy to find before. This change now stops us from just having the map on without having to specify a destination. Many times we don’t want to or have to. You should program it to disappear if it’s not being used as opposed to staying there and blocking your view.
    Please strongly consider removing it, or allowing the user to remove…

  12. Please remove (or have a setting to switch off) the search bar at the bottom of the screen

    Please remove (or have a setting to switch off) the search bar at the bottom of the screen when you don’t have a route planned but still want to use Waze. The box is massive and completely gets in the way. It’s only appeared a few updates back.

  13. Ability to turn off "tool bars". ie. Carpool, My Waze, and Search bars

    We need a way to turn off these tool bars if not being used.
    They make this app mostly unusable, especially in landscape orientation, as they take up a large part of the screen.
    I don't carpool, i dont need the search bar on when I'm driving. Same for My Waze.
    Just a small button to access this would be fine.
    Please make a way to turn these off.

  15. It would be nice to just disable the Search bar from view for regular driving when there is no active Waze navigation going on.

    yes, I can confirm that the Search bar does indeed disappear from the view when actively navigating. However the issue is that it blocks the view at the bottom when you are just driving normally around when you don't need any navigation and you know where you are going, and you are just contributing the real-time data of the current traffic conditions and you can provide user-submitted reports along the way. It would be nice to just disable the Search bar from view for regular driving when there is no active Waze navigation going on. Thank you for your consideration.

  16. Support of Apple CarPlay Split Screen View

    Now that Apple has allowed developers access to developing/modifying their apps to use in CarPlay's split screen view, will we see such a feature soon? This is the main feature I have been waiting for.

  18. navigate from within the site

    Hi it would be great if we can use the website to navigate and not just through the app as occasionally I want to check the best route for one of the kids while I'm in the office.
