    Thank you for your suggestion!
    Waze can currently direct your partial walking route when it’s a part of a drive or carpool.
    We are currently not planning on adding walking mode for complete routes.

  8. windows phone app NEEDS voice command feature!

    Waze is supposed to be hands free, however, for Windows Phone users, there is no voice command feature available! That means it is Not hands free... Please make an update to allow Hands Free Voice Commands available for all users to keep driving safe for everybody.

  9. Please calculate number of traffic lights along the route

    Good day,

    I would like to recommend the following features for future upgrade:
    A) the GPS calculates the number of traffic lights the user would encounter along the route.
    B) let the user have the option to self determine the time traffic light and traffic incident would costs him.

    This would greatly helps in calculating the fastest time. For example, routing using shortest distance is usually right. But due to the encounter of traffic lights and incidents along the route. The shortest distance is not the fastest time. All of us know this fact.

    But many times, the fastest time…

  10. Please update the WP8 app for better battery usage and overheating

    The new WP8 is very harsh on the battery and overheats the phone like nothing I have ever seen before. Others have complained of this same issue in the reviews section of the Windows Phone Store. Even if the phone is plugged into the car's power source, the Waze app uses the battery faster than it is being charged and the charging just can't keep up. Makes the app impossible to use without draining battery and overheating phone.

  11. Use compass to know direction facing

    Use built in compass to work out which way car is facing when calculating best route answer -preferably during the route too.

    So for example, if I'm facing west when I enter my route, waze should not suggest driving east down the road to begin with. It should either recommend west or a u-turn followed by east.

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    Setting the car’s direction when starting the app and navigation is a known matter which will be addressed in the future.
    There are many complexities in location tracking which cause this issue and hold us from providing a solution.
    It’s currently on the back burner, but definitely a part of the backlog.

  12. On wp8 please make the text of the current speed a little bigger.

    You can do this by removing the km/u text and/or increasing the circle.

    Because I use navigation a lot, I'm used to look at my phone for the current speed in stead of my dashboard.

  14. Support Pebble watch (getpebble.com)

    The Pebble is a smart watch with an SDK for Android / iOS. Being able to integrate with it would allow users to quickly report traffic instances without using the phone interface. Just click a button on the watch and it reports heavy traffic por example.

  16. Interface for linking Waze with MyLink (Chevrolet and Opel multimedia system)

    I like and use Waze every day when I go to work, but watching and tapping the smartphone touchscreen is unconfortable and dangerous.
    Why don't you write an interface for linking Waze with MyLink (Chevrolet and Opel multimedia system) in order to use it through the car touchscreen? General Motors has already released APIs for the purpose, and the only one compatible navigation app is rather expensive and closed source...

    Thank you for your suggestion! We are currently not planning on adding MyLink support, since Waze works with both CarPlay and AndroidAuto, which should be available in most car models. Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s blog and social pages on Facebook and Instagram.

  17. BlackBerry Q10

    Can you please release an app for the BB Q10 ?

    If developing a native app is not in the cards - can you modify an existing app to work on the BB 10 platform ? as there are apps that work on the Z10 but not on the Q10 - please make sure that it works on both ....
    please let us know if there are any plans for this release - we are loyal to Waze and to BB and are eagerly awaiting this omission to be corrected .

  19. Add a gate/restricted option for gated communities/parks/highways and time of travel restrictions

    There are some roads that you can only travel on if you have permission, such as a private road that requires a gate code or key. There are other public roads that are only passable at certain times of the year (e.g. Hwy 120 in Yosemite due to snow conditions).

    That private road may still be open to the general public during certain hours of the day. As well that public road may only be open during certain seasons. As well someone else pointed out that certain roads have turns restricted based on time of the day.

    It seems like…
