  1. Banner notifications

    I would be great if a banner notification would show if the app was running in the background and a turn was approaching. Apple maps does this, and if Waze did it, there would be no reason to use Apple maps ever again.

  2. Be able to "drop a pin" at current location and add to favorites

    It'd be good to be able to drop a pin at current location and give it a name and add it to favorites. The current method of having to do addresses or POI searches is not always workable--especially on small form-factor devices.

  3. Categorizing Favorites

    With my Garmin, I can quickly look at my favorites list relative to my current location. ADVANTAGE: I'm hungry.....it tells me where my favorite restaurants and coffee shops are and how close. Makes it easy to return there when i'm in the area.

    UPGRADE: Ability to share your favorites list with a friend, so that they can choose a place and navigate there as well!

  4. Seria muy util si pudieramos organizar los destinos favoritos en carpetas (ej. familia, amigos, clientes,etc.)

    Seria muy util si pudieramos organizar los destinos favoritos en carpetas (ej. familia, amigos, clientes,etc.) y a su vez dentro de las carpetas nos muestre los destinos del mas cercano al mas lejano de esa forma es mas facil crear una ruta, para los que trabajamos con Waze seria genial, gracias.

  5. Dash cam

    Add dash cam features in background, auto record when car is moving, just enable feature and everything runs in background. Similar to app called witness. Record 10 segments, 6min each. Store date,time and GPS. Thought of this after learning that every car in Russia has a dash cam (all those meteor recordings).

  6. Addresses in Colombia

    Addresses are pretty easy to implement in Colombia, they have 2 components. The main road being it a Calle or Carrera most of the time, and the House number, made of two parts, The intersection with the opposing road, for example a Carrera would intersect with a Calle and viceversa, and the distance from the intersection. For example, Calle 45 #67-85 would be 85 meters after the intersection of Calle 45 and Carrera 67, on Calle 45 going towards calle 68. It would be pretty easy, and really convenient for users in Colombia.

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    We are aware of this need since address fields are ordered differently from one country to the other.
    Providing this flexibility in address fields is planned but it’s out of current scope so we can’t share a timeline at the moment.
    We will keep the community posted, so stay tuned!

  7. Option for pedestrian route?

    I use Waze for driving, but occasionally need some direction on walking/running routes. It's only slightly different but might be a nice option.

    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.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram

  8. Scenic Route

    Many of us love weekend road trips. Occasionally it's nice to take the scenic route instead of the fastest.

  9. Show favorites on map

    In other gps devices, your favorites show up on the map. For example if you have a friends house saved and you drive by you'll be able to see it on the map. So I think it would be nice to have your favorites show on the map all the time or at least have an option to turn on a feature like this.

  12. Avoid parkway feature

    Driving a commercial vehicle we are not allowed to go on parkways. A conventional GPS allows you to "avoid part of route" I want to be able to go on all other highways just not parkways. When it gives you a route, you should be able to avoid parkways where all truckers cannot use either

  13. Waze for WP8

    It would be great for Waze to release a version for WP8. I love using Waze on iOS and it is one of the limited apps that I would miss on WP8. Thanks!

  14. Only show gas stations on my side of the freeway

    When I search gas station on my route, waze also shows gas station on the other side of the freeway. Those are not reachable, unless I turn around.
    Could you improve this feature so gas stations on the other side of the freeway are excluded, or make it a settings option.

  15. GPS coordinates

    It would be great to have a GPS dashboard panel, displaying in the same screen:
    - Longitude, Latitude & Elevation
    - Velocity
    - GPS status (fixed, not fixed, ...)
    - Signal's strength
    - Compass

    Something like this picture: http://i49.tinypic.com/15chxqc.png

  16. Translucent screen Icons to prevent Screen Burn/Ghosting

    My SGS II has slight screen burn from the lower icons in the corners.
    Is it possible to make the icons darker or slight translucent to prevent screen burn/ghosting, Maybe it is a good idea to make this for every static object within the waze screen.

    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.

  17. Auto Shutdown at Destination

    When arriving at your destination have Waze prompt an Auto-Shutdown with a 10 second countdown. I always shutdown my Waze when I arrive and instead of having to click menu and then shutdown, why not have Waze offer to do it automatically. This will also save battery if people forget.

  18. Please make a BlackBerry 10/Playbook version!

    Any thoughts on supporting the new BlackBerry 10 / Playbook OS? With the support they have for running Android apps in their own JVM this should be a slam dunk.
