      • Allow location services to be on only when app is in uae

        Do what so many others allow to preserve battery life - offer location services option for being on ONLY when app is in use.

        OR explain why you don't offer it in a convincing fashion.

        In the meantime I will reluctantly use google maps to preserve my battery

        sincerely

              • Do not reset "avoid toll roads" when updating to a new version.

                When downloading a new version update, Waze automatically resets to "avoid toll roads". The last time it happened I ended up rushing to a concert and Waze directed me through the pampas instead of the highway which would have been most logical, as I always have the highway use switched on - we have annual coupons for toll road use. Understandably, I was really furious. So - an update should take into consideration the current settings of each user, just like it recently improved regarding language settings. Having to remember all personal settings and re-setting them after each update is…

                • Avoid cyclists accidents warning drivers about cyclists groups

                  More and more cyclists are being run over. And Waze can help. Waze warns drivers about roadworks, accidents, traffic jams. why not do it with bicycles? Cyclists groups move, so they can't be pointed out by drivers
                  They must point out themselves. Cyclists select "bike mode" on the app , Waze identifies them as a group and warns drivers.

                  • Mobile Radar, not just Police

                    Hello,

                    In countries where is not prohibited to know where the police spots with laser guns / mobile radar equipment (Spain, Hungary, Romania etc.) it would be nice to have Radar not just Police, among the reporting categories.

                    Thanks!

                    • Recent / last used reports

                      Hello,

                      Is it possible to have listed the last used report types, e.q. Police, Pothole, Road Works etc. ?
                      It would be very helpfully to not choose every time what kind of danger you want to report.

                      Many thanks!

                        • Let the user define which alerts to hear in the in the audio mode: "Alerts only"

                          If it can be added to the settings, it'll be great. Since it should be a custom audio mode. For example, I don't want to hear "hazard ahead", which people tend to report all the time.
                          Another option is to divide such alerts with priority. For example car which is stuck in the middle of the road is not the same as the alert about a car which is on the side of the road... (currently, no way to separate)

                          • Alert "Traffic ahead" not helping...

                            The voice alert "Traffic ahead" should be hear at least 5 seconds before the traffic. Otherwise it misses the point - I can see the traffic by myself...
                            If it comes sooner it could help preventing unnecessary emergency brakes

                                    • Waze should give me the option to avoid streets that have cameras.

                                      I would like to be able to tell Waze to not send me to streets with traffic cameras.

                                      • Logout of All Devices Option for Lost Phones

                                        An option to logout of all devices should be implemented for privacy purposes when people lose their phones as there will be personal addresses and frequented locations saved in the app.

                                        • Please turn off the "You parked here" pop-up or at least give the option to disable it.

                                          Stop trying to do too much!!! I don't need to know or share where I parked when I first start the app especially if I'm sitting in my car where I parked it. I want to enter my destination and go. If I want to share my location, I'll do so through the menu. Very annoying.
