  1. Route mapping/sharing social

    I believe having some sort of route mapping option akin to services like mapmyrun and Strava would be a great way to introduce a more social aspect for those of us who like driving for the sake of the drive or an adventure.

    Myself and many of my friends enjoy just going on random drives where we just go where the wind takes us and see sights with no particular destinations in mind. However mapping those routes and destinations for future reference is challenging and honestly time consuming.

    A feature like this as I could currently see it would allow…

    GOOD AFTERNOON
    - Then when using waze I hear messages that have hole in the track, spine, but it does not appear for me to register them
    - I consider it important to be able to inform other wazer of the problems and thus alleviate the problems
    - I also receive works of works, but there is no way to register
    WHAT IS THE REASON?

  4. Deleting old routes efficiently

    I would like to delete routes I no longer need with only two or three moves. Similar to deleting messages in the inbox.

  5. Routs and navigation

    Dear Waze Team,
    I hope this message finds you well. I'm a delighted user of Waze, and as a new driver, I've encountered a challenge with back-to-back exits on roads. Specifically, I've noticed two types of road markings: a fully white line, indicating we should stay, and a faint white line, suggesting we shouldn't.

    I'd like to propose an enhancement to address this issue. Adding one more sign, colored green, could provide a comprehensive solution. Here's the breakdown:

    1. Green Line: Indicates it's safe ahead, and there's no need to change lanes.
    2. White Line: Signifies it's safe to stay, but a…

  6. New different possible routes interface now not user friendly

    The previous way to recheck the possible different routes was way more user friendly. When the options were in list form, with one glance we could see the different possibilities and as well as details for each of those routes. With the new format we only see time to destination and no other info. Please go back to the old format. Change is not always for the better.

  7. Feature to Avoid Specific Road

    I really do love Waze! You guys are great! But can you PLEASE add an option to avoid specific roads (or steps of a route)? There’s a route that Waze directs me on my commute daily, both ways, that includes 2 roads that are extremely dangerous. I don’t mean difficult intersections or something like that. I mean regularly reported gun violence, car jackings at stop signs/lights, and gang activity. I literally had this map editing option back in the days of printing out mapquest directions… any kind of option would be wonderful! Thank you!

  8. Exit express lane

    Waze should tell when to exit express lane in order to have enough time to get to road exit. Your directions give highway exit number but don’t say when to leave express in time to cross several lanes to exit highway.

  11. UK time restrictions (School Streets)

    Monday to Friday
    No entry between 8am and 9:15am."
    And 2:45pm and 4:00pm."

    There are loads of these signs in hundreds of cities all over the UK especially London. Can't we allow for local map editors to save time based restrictions into the map?

  14. Put locations at top of 'Where To' list at set time and day

    I often do things same time each week. It would be great to have the option to set a time and a day for saved locations.

    This would mean if I open Waze around 5:30pm on any Tuesday or Thursday, (this) item will start at the top of my 'Where To' list.

    This feature would work best in conjunction with a 'Silent' option for each saved location. Since I go to certain places frequently, I already know how to get there.

    Setting a Saved Location to 'Silent' would mean directions are only read aloud to the driver IF THEY DIFFER…

  15. Tow Mode

    I often tow a trailer for work, and use Waze to go everywhere - but often time saving routes will take me down side streets and laneways that are narrow and difficult to navigate with a trailer. Same would apply for touring with a caravan.

    It would be awesome to have a mode that minimizes tight turns, side streets or intersections without traffic lights.

  16. The shortest route in terms of time should take account of a reduced speed compared with the maximum speed

    My employer wants me to drive with a reduced speed below the speed limits :
    - 110 km/h on roads limited to 130 km/h
    - 100 km/h on roads limited to 110 km/h.
    I can't set those maximum speeds into the Waze settings.
    The path with the shortest time depends on the maximal speed a vehicle has on each type of road.

  17. Custom Routes to avoid Major Cities Centers

    This goes to having customized routes, I was driving from the Northeast to SC, this would make me drive through heavily congested areas like NYC and Waze always wants to make me use the GW bridge, which is a horrible route if you have ever driven it. There should be an option to choose less congested routes, example I would choose to use the Verrazano Bridge route that takes me around the city. This should be an option for heavily congested large cities, Wash D.C., Philly, etc...

  18. Allow the user to keep the route from changing

    Tonight I was driving home with family during the season’s biggest rain storm. Initially Waze set a good route across major freeways that are relatively safe in the rain. Then it suggested a re-route across a windy mountain road (Angeles Crest Highway) instead of the major freeway in order to save only about 2 minutes. Of course I hit No. It kept suggesting other re-routes as well, including driving across older freeways through downtown LA that are prone to flooding, and I hit No again. Each time it would barely save any time to do such re-route. But it would…

  19. Show factors that impact route prediction.

    Show factors that impact route prediction.
    Example: New Orleans has many closures during Mardi Gras season.
    I had Waze show route to a Burger King that I knew would be impacted by closures. The pre-route screen did not show any information that would hint to the problem.
    The route did come up as expected that was far from a direct route.
    Then checking the map in Waze, it did show the many closures that the route page did not.

    Waze should show closures, traffic, Hazzard Reports and anything else that would impact the route.
