  1. Affichage nom des rues : très gênant !!!

    Bonjour,

    J'utilise la dernière version Androïd disponible (4.24.0.2), et je suis souvent gêné par les très (trop) nombreuses bulles indiquant le nom des rues sur mon trajet.
    Cela masque fréquemment des intersections, et n'apporte aucune d'aide à la navigation.

    Puis-je les désactiver ? Comment ?

    Merci

    • Stop sending warning about available Waze updates, esp. on a Holiday

      EVERY time I update Waze I have a subsequent problem. Today, the Memorial holiday in the USA, I get a notification of a Waze update available. I am aware of this update since February 9th.
      1. EVERY time I update Waze I have problems. My current problem that has existed since I last updated is that when I click on the notice at the top of my Galaxy S4 for 'its time to start driving' the destination information disappears.
      2. I have reviewed the information on the Waze update still to download and I DO NOT NEED a voice recorder…

      • Road kill marking for local DOT pickup

        Like marking road hazards, you could mark road kill for local DOT pickup

        • "STOP" Signs on Map

          Driving at night through neighborhoods with little to no light can be difficult to track all traffic signs. It would be awesome if you guys could integrate signs on the map so drivers are aware that a traffic sign is coming up on the trip. I know this would be extremely helpful and probably would prevent accidents.

          • Being able to set a radius of what specific area you want to avoid AT ALL TIMES

            In Toronto, the area around the ACC and Rogers centre is a constant cluster f**k. It would be great to be able to tell waze to always avoid this area since the beginning and end of games is always a disaster. Just today we were on our way home and instead of giving an alternate route home, it brought us to the centre of the disaster area of pedestrian traffic right when a blue jays home game ended, which extended our travel time by 2x.

              How about you don't mess up and say I'll be home at 2.30pm when I actually got there 3 hours later !! And how about you don't tell me the gas station is 2min off road when it's actually 30!! Ruined my day

              • We need a trip planner.

                We use navigation for our delivery company. We have many stops on our routes. It would be nice to input all of the addresses and let Waze plan your trip, live. This would allow us to avoid waiting in traffic due to accidents or just heavy traffic.

                • Currently playing music shown on map

                  I use my phone to listen to music while driving (through Bluetooth) a lot of the time and I also use the screen of my phone to see what song is playing, I just thought it would be a cool thing for the app to tell you what song is playing on your phone while having the map open. I have seen other apps do this so I know it is possible.

                  • Google Play Music Media Controls

                    Add a mostly-transparent overlay option with controls of simply "Previous, Play/Pause, Next" - quite chunky without being intrusive, that works with a media player of your choice, not just Spotify. Thanks!

                        • Setting to turn off big purple road names

                          Many times these "new" big purple road names block the map at intersections and make it difficult to know if you are turning onto the correct street.

                          • Different Way Same Destination

                            On holiday weekends the back roads that waze puts you on are always packed make it possible for 2 people going to the same place or using the same roads to go different ways so traffic doesn't build up on those back roads.

                                • Hlášení nebezpečí přes Google Text-to-speach

                                  Když se objeví na trase nebezpečí, tak to hlásí "Na trase je hlášeno nebezpečí". To ale bohužel nestačí, protože nevím jaké nebezpečí mě čeká.

                                  Lepší by bylo převést text na řeč (přes Google Text-to-speach) a říci "Na trase je hlášeno nebezpečí - oprava vozovky" nebo "Na trase je hlášeno nebezpečí - srážka dvou vozidel - zdržení 5 minut".

                                  A podobné rozšiřující informace.

                                      • Make navigation intuitive - have the navigation voice speak from the direction of the next turn.

                                        Do you ever get confused with left and right?

                                        My wife does, causing panic when she takes both hands off the wheel to for the "L" with both hands.

                                        The solution, and also a darn cool feature, is to have the navigation voice "move towards" the junction you going to turn off on as you approach it, using stereo.

                                        Problem solved - just follow the voice!
