  1. Restore construction zone reporting! No longer there in version 4.32

    The new reporting option choices are a step backwards. Please restore construction zone as a choice and get rid of the buttons that encourage inappropriate distractions while driving, like map chat and place.

        • More route options

          Waze thinks I take the freeway to work everyday and finds carpools that match that route. Unfortunately I cut across the mountain and avoid freeway traffic and I’d like to see carpoolers on that route. I have a 2 hour commute each way so I start early. It routes me on the faster route( by minutes) but by the time I get to the highway it has backed up and now takes 30-50 mins longer. I would like Waze to recognize the route I take everyday (with 40000) others and offer that morning route. You know when I drop off…

          • Carsharing option

            Add a pedestrian mode (in which you can set a trip from A to B) in order to catch a car using Waze (carsharing) which has the same route or at least will pass by the point B.

              • רמזור זמן

                הבעיה שחשבנו לפתור היא שאנשים אשר נוסעים במכונית לא יכולים לדעת כמה זמן נותר להם לפני התחלפות הרמזור, ובעיה זאת מפלגת את האוכלוסייה לשתי קבוצות עיקריות. הקבוצה הראשונה היא קבוצה אשר נוהגת להעלות את המהירות כאשר הם רואים רמזור, והשנייה קבוצה שנוהגת להנמיך את המהירות לצורך קבלת תשובה וודאית האם הם יוכלו לעבור ברמזור זה או לא. כאשר שתי קבוצות אלו נפגשות בכביש אז נוצר מצב שכאשר האוטו שמולך מנסה להאט ואתה רוצה להגביר מהירות בשביל לעבור את הרמזור נוצרת תאונה. הרעיון שלנו מתבסס על מאגר הרמזורים של המשטרה שבעזרתו נוכל לעשות שיפור בוויז, אשר הוויז יוכל על ידי המאגר…

                  • taxi

                    Sres. Waze soy un taxista novato por lo cual no puedo calcular las tarifas cuando un cliente me pregunta el precio hasta un lugar determinado.
                    Una idea seria que cuando un cliente me diga que lo lleve a una dirección, usar el Waze y tenga una opción del precio a cobrar calculando la distancia y el trafico.
                    Como se calcularia el precio?
                    Nosotros pondriamos en una opcion, el precio por KM.
                    y Waze pondria el precio final al poner nosotros el destino donde ir.
                    LIMA PERU

                    • Less annoying alert tone for going off route

                      The chime tone for when I go off course is very annoying and on a long trip, is enough to give me a headache. It could be much subtler or better yet user-selectable

                          • Restricted area: to be able to choose driving through

                            It would be great if we can choose if we want or no to drive through a restricted area. For example sometimes I have business that the deal will give more money than the bill to pay for driving on the restricted area, sometimes it's a holiday and the restricted area is not valid that day.

                            • Parking near to the destination when traffic is heavy to reach

                              Sometimes when going to some places (mainly in big cities) the street of our destination has a huge traffic jam and the street by side is totally free or with less traffic. The idea is waze to suggest us to park near and walk to the destination if walking from near place is faster than drive to the destination :)
                              Once I was driving to a place I could see it from the car and took me 20 minutes to reach.

                                • Cars on Trains

                                  Allow routes to use services where the car is loaded onto a train (bit like a land ferry), e.g Auto Train in the USA, Eurotunnel in UK, and others in Europe, Australia. The route should be "schedule & wait time" aware

                                  Also when you choose such a route, allow entry of a booked time to influence the route and notify of departures/wait times when getting close to the departure point.

                                  All of this would be similar to a ferry although cars on train routes tend to be more "optional", and may not be quicker.

                                  • Plane/Aircraft overheard notification..for Fun

                                    Add a new notification: "Plane/Aircraft" overheard/visible at lowish altitude with details of type, airline etc. Just for fun! Answer that question "what's that plane I can see" when driving under flightpaths in cities.

                                    Work with flightradar or planefinder to get the data feed that you need to support this.

                                    Could also do this for ships, working with Marinetraffic/shipfinder

                                      • Google based domain fronting for Waze to fight internet censorship

                                        Hi

                                        As you might know Waze is being blocked in different countries including Iran.
                                        It would be great to implement domain fronting techniques for Waze client so people in countries with limited internet access could be able to use Waze without installing third party VPN software.
                                        Messenger App Signal has implemented such techniques and it has been successful so far.
