  1. Exiting apps

    Once you finished the planned travel, there should be a EXIT option, rather then extra steps to close the apps! Should be one step process, every clicks counts, when you are health care professionals.

    • Demand Tagalog as voice choice

      According to Wikipedia, Tagalog is the fourth most used language in the US, but US Waze does not offer this as a choice. However, when in the Philippines, it is a choice. There's a total of 73 languages offered in US Waze, and I have no idea where half of them are---much less how many people speak those languages in the US. Not including Tagalog is discrimination in the US and needs to be immediately added. Looking to submit BBB complaint next.

        • Option to Hide/Remove Report Button

          There should be an Option to Hide/Remove the orange Report Button on the bottom right side of the screen. There are many users who do not use that button at all and would benefit by having the option to hide it. Thank you!

            • Snow in weather

              In hazards weather you should include Snow. Wisconsin has lots of snow causing poor visibity Wind would be good too

                • Adding state lines

                  When zooming out of your route, it would be nice to see the actual states and the borders. Went from Ohio to Niagara Falls and zoomed out to see how far we were to Pennsylvania and couldn’t due to Waze not having any state lines.

                  • Spelling mistake in Gas Station Prices Update

                    Hello,

                    Waze must be written correctly so ...

                    I propose the following solution avoiding shells in all languages:

                    Replace in all languages "Updated 1 days ago" by "Updated yesterday" (1 days ago is not correct)

                    This correction has the advantage of being shorter in many languages ... such as French where "Mis à jour il y a 1 jours" would be replaced by "Mis à jour hier" ...

                    Leave all the others "updated 2 days ago" ... which are all correct ...

                    What's your opinion ?

                    • Offline usage with default routes.

                      It would be GREAT if Waze could work offline when either the 3/4G or the GPS signal goes off.

                      In the cases where the route had already been calculated when the signal is lost, Waze could save this very route for offline usage.

                      In the cases where the signal is lost even before the route is calculated, Waze could use a default route just like the old GPS systems.

                      (Please give this suggestion your votes if you agree with it.)

                      • Navegação offline com rotas-padrão

                        Seria EXCELENTE se o Waze funcionasse offline quando o sinal da internet ou do GPS caísse.

                        No caso da rota já ter sido calculada quando o sinal caísse, o Waze poderia salvar e utilizar essa mesma rota offline.

                        No caso do sinal cair antes mesmo da rota ser calculada, o Waze poderia utilizar uma rota-padrão assim como fazem os sistemas de GPS antigos.

                              The location for Austin Texas airport is incorrect. It was sending us to a residential neighborhood. Both phones using Waze were getting the same directions. The phones were Iphone 7 &8.

                                      The Waze Map Editor should permit editors to pull place descriptions from Google Local Guides since Google acquired Waze. Waze already permits editors to use Street View info. Also, Google Local Guides is a crowdsourced project, just like Waze.
