  1. Funny voice interpretation

    Please adopt some Philippines funny voice version, voices like Babalu, Dolphy or Fernando Poe Jr. As you all know that traffic here is terrible hearing those voices will have some smile on a commuters/passengers. Its a nice form of entertainment to ease the heavy traffic.

    • Stop violating my privacy

      I suggest that Waze correct its software so that it ceases to use my location when I am no longer using the app and despite the fact that the default setting is to use my location only when using the app. I would imagine that you are violating some sort of Apple rule or condition by doing this. Even as I write this, my phone indicates you are actively using my location even though I have exited the app. Is this even legal?

      • Yellow icon burn in

        Waze apps has a yellow round button on the right bottom right which cause a burn-in
        on mobile screen. Hope Waze can do something about the yellow icon running on the bottom right, so it does not burn in display screen when it runs for a long time eg I hr.

        • Comportamento do trânsito das cidades

          O Waze poderia alimentar, mensalmente ou bimensalmente, os meios de comunicação com relatórios sobre o comportamento do trânsito das cidades. Apontando quantos quilômetros de congestionamento foram registrados no período, quantas horas de trânsito lento, os pontos críticos das cidades, ente outros dados que ajudariam os jornalistas a medir o caos das grandes cidades e a evolução nas pequenas.

          • Add Vehicle/Rig type

            We tow a trailer a bunch. Having the ability to put in that we are towing changes 2 aspects
            1) In my state, the trailer speed limit is 55 on the freeway so that changes the ETA significantly
            2) Waze has taken us down some wicked small roads with no place to turn around. If it knew we were towing, it might have rerouted us.

            • A passive aggressive woman that thinks all men are wrong

              A woman that tells you you are wrong even if you go the right way, and goes off if you make a wrong turn. Trying to get my wife to play along and do this, but she isn't in the mood.

                • Popup traffic messages when screen is black

                  I suggest a function, if Waze runs in background or the phone display is turned off black, Waze not just says, but shows with graphic popup window the road and traffic messages, alerts etc.
                  Then it if no action was made by the user, the popup automatically disappear in predefined seconds later

                  Many times for many reasons we do not want charge the phone, but the "screen always on" mode drains a battery a lot. (IPhone and Android)

                  • One place to keep in touch

                    Something like Facebook (Could be called Wazing or whatever) but for all the users or it's own place instead of Discord because seems everyone on Waze loves to share and talk some are now friends because of Waze. And it's awesome but it's so hard to keep up with Slack and Discord and the PM and all the channels. Even on WME the chat it's hard because sometimes it's so many people. I know would be a great help and everyone would love a place where it shows everyone not jump to different channels and can chat to anyone online…

                    • Please include an altimeter reading on the driving map. It would be helpful when driving in mountain areas.

                      An altimeter reading saying at what altitude you are driving is very helpful as road signs showing it are rare.

                      • Add address numbers when arrived

                        Need to add address (number and street) when on final street instead of saying "you have arrived at your destination". Uber and Lyft drivers use waze and need to know address. We look at mail boxes as we drive down the street. Sometimes the x is not in the same location as the address but we can't see the address.
                        Thank you for your consideration.

                        • make the baby icon a mood!

                          I really love the baby icon and I didn't know that after driving 100 miles it would change!! :( I wish the baby could be added as a mood, it would make me so happy to have it back!

                          • Option to turn off alerts for road construction

                            I can choose to toggle Road Constructions on or off for "Display On Map."

                            I would like to be able to toggle off alerts for Road Constructions, specifically, under "Alerts on Route."

                            Driving in Minnesota in the summer, it is a given that there will be road construction everywhere. It's nice to be able to see it on the map, and have the app use the information in its routing calculations, but I don't need an alert to tell me that it is there. It interrupts whatever else I am listening to, and it is not necessary to alert me…

                            • Ability to remove an accidental pin / comment / indicator

                              I dropped a pin/indicator on accident and had no way of removing it. We really need to be able to remove our own pin drops and indicators. I saw on the forums that people have been requesting this, quite literally, for several years now. If I'm being honest, this is a feature that should have been included from day one. It's so obviously necessary that it makes me wonder why you guys have procrastinated for so long?

                              • Informar denominação da Hidrografia pois existe sinalização nas pontes e o Google Maps esta provocando desinformação.

                                Sou Geógrafo da Prefeitura do Jaboatão dos Guararapes, responsável pelo Núcleo de Georreferenciamento do Cadastro Imobiliário para fins Multifinalitário. Alimentamos a Plataforma ArcGis Enterprise. Uma das tarefas é alimentar com a denominação de logradouro e sentidos de circulação na via. Tenho enviado contribuições para o Google Maps e Local Guides. É importante também corrigir o nome dos Rios. Já informei que o nome do Rio a Jusante da Barragem sobre o Rio Duas Unas (que forma o Lago da Barragem de Duas Unas) é o Rio Duas Unas e Google Maps não corrige e a BR 232 tem duas pontes…

                                      • Correct Multi window (currently pauses)

                                        Can you please allow waze to work correctly in multi window mode.Android 7.1.1 if you have Waze open in a multi-window configuration, it wouldn't actually work as expected. As long as it had focus and was the last app you interacted with, Waze would work as expected, updating your location and orientation on the map. But if you interacted with another app in multi-window, Waze would stop updating until you go back to it.

                                        Similar issue with Google maps which just got fixed:

                                        • More themes

                                          Please add more themes for daytime and night navigation. Actually the night theme is vers good, but there could be more daytime themes.
