  1. Show street signs!

    Let the user community add street signs and traffic lights. As a driver it would be helpful to know if a street I'm driving on has a stop sign coming up or a traffic light so I can get advanced notice of the upcoming intersection. Also it would be helpful to be able to add signs for school zones or yield signs.

    I think this would be a major benifit to have this information on the map.

  2. Dim the Screen to Stop Screen Burn In

    Waze is great but it loves to burn images of the buttons into my phone screen. A dimming option when not in use would save battery and stop this burning problem.

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    The Report button was designed to be noticed while blending in and it’s important to keep it as is.
    However, we will revisit this idea when working on Dark mode, in the future. Furthermore, since this is a physical issue that OLED phones suffer from in different apps, we recommend to use Battery Saver mode to allow your display some rest from bright colors that might lead to this dysfunction.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram.

  3. I am a daily user of the waze app. It is great!! I am interested to know when you will have it work on the Apple Watch.

    I have used the Maps app on the iPhone recently that coordinated with my Apple Watch and it was a nice combination. My watch would vibrate when the next turn was going to happen and also show on my watch for a quick glance.

    As you probably know, some of the voices we feature are promotional, meaning they are only available for a limited time.
    We offer special voices for holidays, events, and just for fun.
    You can use these for the length of the promotion. When the promotion ends, your voice will reset to the default and the voice will no longer appear in the Sound menu.

    We hope that you enjoyed the voice while it was available and can’t wait to share more exciting voices to come!

    Want to try another voice?

    Tap Menu and tap the Settings wheel.
    Tap Voice & sound.
    Tap Voice Language and select the voice you’d like to use.

  7. support "car camera" mode

    today, a lot of drivers buy a car camera. we can save it by adding this feature to waze.
    the phone is already mounted aiming at the front of the car, and we can also recor sounds inside the car.

    save last 3\5 minutes. ON\OFF from settings, screen button to "save video".
    permenantly delete older files not to use a lot of disk space and dont use the best camera option (3 min. of 4K is a lot!). option to save to internal memory\SD card if available. option to "share" the file to gmail, google drive etc.

  8. Show gas station on my way

    Navigate me to a gas station that is on my way rather than a gas station that is nearest to my current location. That will be suitable for drivers that wants to pass through a gas station but it is not that urgent to them and just don't want to get off track too much that could stall them.

  9. Add "Disabled Vehicle" to Windows Phone version

    I have an Android phone at work, and a Windows Phone at home. I use Waze on both as a single user. I was navigating home on Sunday when I watched a vehicle become disabled next to me at a traffic light. Being the good Wazer that I am, I immediately opened my Waze app and pressed on the "REPORT" icon. On my work (Android) phone under "HAZARD", there is an option to identify "Vehicle Stopped". On my Home (Windows) phone version, that option is completing missing. How did this get left off???? Could someone at Waze add it as…

  10. Seria muito interessante que os alarmes de radar indicassem a velocidade máxima permitida no trecho

    É muito bom o alarme do Waze sobre radares de velocidade, porém a ausência da informação da velocidade máxima permitida no trecho é um fator muito importante que deveria ser exibido junto com o alarme

  11. Apple Watch Support

    Similar to how Apple Maps works on the Apple Watch, but with Was instead. Please release something, anything, for the Apple Watch.

  15. Automatic Multiple Stop Route Optimization

    Lets say I want to stop by 8 tourist locations in Washington, DC but because I am new to the area I will have no idea how to route myself optimally....so it would be awesome if I could just put in the location addresses or names and have WAZE optimize my stops to be most efficient and effective.

    Now that would be an awesome travel tool! Heck it might even work for pizza delivery guys too! ;)

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    This idea has been being discussed for a while and recognized as an important user request.
    We hear the community’s voice and would like to share that while we can’t currently commit to a timeline, we do have plans to create a way to add more than one stop pre-drive.
    We’ll keep the community posted, please stay tuned!

  16. The WP app needs to be updated. Make functional: additional voices, Facebook/friends feature, landscape view.

    The app is great on other devices, but is in need of refinement on WP 8.1. The app does not properly download additional guidance voices (on Terry Crews it stayed at 0 percent for weeks), the social/friends link just goes back to the main Waze screen, the app is locked in vertical position--which is not optimal; and the gas feature (including reporting) doesn't work at all. Ideally, this app should mirror the other devices in terms of functionality--it would be heads and shoulders above the default "Here" app.

    I am having trouble because of the amount of ads coming to my screen. I barely can see the way and I need to touch the phone while driving.

  18. Turn off "thank you" notifications!!

    I don't like my screen being cluttered with dozens of notifications, and my notification center being filled etc with dozens on unnecessary thank yous!! It makes me want to stop using the app! Please include the ability to TURN THIS OFF!!
    Thanks!

  20. Configurable Shortcut/Hotkeys on main screen

    Would be handy to have the option to add 2 or 3 of your most used functions or additional functions on the homescreen for easy access. For instance, it would be handy to be able to add a button to the homescreen that will automatically highlight petrol stations so you can hit it when you petrol light comes on
