      • Add directional arrows to list of search results

        Please add directional arrows to search results. For instance, if I search for McDonalds the results shows me all the McDonalds in the area and how far away each one is. I would like to also know which one is in the direction I am headed so I don't go out of my way to what happens to be the closest.

          • your app is the perfect platform for adding a wildlife button for real time alerts for wildlife on or near roads

            Please add a function that allows drivers to send wildlife alerts real time-wil save human and animal lives. We have one of the largest herds of elk in the world and a growing community. This would be an excellent addition to the alert choices

              • A true support for bilingual countries

                I noticed that Waze doesn't approach bilingual countries just like GMM does.
                For example, in GMM, we can write multiple names for the same road in 2 different languages and based on the user's current phone language chosen, the map changes accordingly.
                Unfortunately that doesn't happen in Waze, we are stuck in 1 language only, even if we add "Alternative" name.

                Here in Kuwait, we use both Arabic and English (Even street signs are written in both Arabic and English) , in Google Maps we are having no problems since most of the roads in the map are written in…

                • Make it possible to report a road block even when not near לאפשר להודיע על כביש חסום גם כשרחוקים ממנו

                  לפני כשבוע נתקלתי במחסום בדרך, והמפה לא הייתה מעודכנת. לא יכלתי לעדכן אותה באותו רגע. בסוף הנסיעה ניסיתי לעדכן במפה שהכביש חסום, אך לא הצלחתי. צריך לאפשר לעדכן שכביש חסום, גם אם לא נמצאים ממש לידו, למצבים כאלו ואחרים.
                  About a week ago I tried to report a road block, but coudln't since I had to continue driving and the app lets you report just if it's near you. I think it's should be possible to report a road is blocked, even when you are far away

                          • Melhor rota no Brasil

                            Estamos tendo muitos problemas com o Waze aqui no Brasil por conta de ele sugerir caminhos alternativos muito perigosos. Já houve vários casos de mortes em áreas de grande risco, como no Rio de Janeiro e São Paulo e, precisamos de soluções imediatas.
                            Eu mesma tive problemas com isso, uma vez fui a um endereço desconhecido e o Waze fez um caminho em que o bairro era muito perigoso. Fiquei com muito medo por não conhecer direito e acionei outro aplicativo que me tirou daquele perigo.
                            Para melhor uso do aplicativo, sugiro que mude a considerada "melhor rota" porque não…

                                This is similar to a few other suggestions.
                                I would like for the, "Time To Leave" function to be controllable so that I can set the amount of time that works for me. In 5 or 10 minute increments after WAZE figures out the traffic length. As only I know what works for me as far as how long it takes me to get ready. Also I would like for the alert to be different and loud so I do not miss it!
                                Just wondering if the WAZE app is not running will it still alert me according to the…

                                • Improve navigation at private installations

                                  Please modify the app's map to display gate icons representing gates that were previously created in the editor. Each icon will be invisibly linked to a nearby private road segment. When the gate is closed, the normal penalty for a private road will be applied to the route should this wazer's route include the segment. If the gate is open, there will be no penalty when this wazer's route traverses the segment.

                                  An example of how this works would be a gated neighborhood with a main entrance where all visitors must enter and a private entrance that may be used…

                                    • Garder Waze au premier plan IOS

                                      Bonjour, Il serait vraiment urgent de remettre l'option "garder waze au premier plan" lors d'un appel sur Iphone. En effet, cette option est disponible sur Android mais pas sur IOS. Les commerciaux passent de nombreux appels pendant les trajets, cela m'a déjà couter plusieurs points, car je n'avais plus accès à l'appli pendant l'appel.
                                      Un fidèle utilisateur (140000 Km avec Waze).
                                      Merci,

                                      • Simplifier les signalements

                                        Bonjour, je pense qu'il serait beaucoup moins dangereux pour le conducteur de pouvoir faire des signalements par UNE SEULE action sans avoir à préciser les accidents et les dangers. Par exemple si accident léger ou grave, plusieurs manipulations à faire dans un contexte dangereux lors d'un accident de circulation ou véhicule en panne au milieu de la chaussée.
                                        Retour d'expérience où j'ai abandonner le signalement au risque d'un sur-accident.
                                        Merci à toute l'équipe
                                        Fred

                                        • BT buttons for reporting

                                          Waze could really use some BT (or NFC) connected buttons which one could paste on the steering wheel for reporting. One should be able to predefine common reports (police here, accident here, etc) and thus be able to report with a single button press.
