  1. Speech recognition for Windows Mobile

    Voice input works great for Android but is not currently available for Windows Mobile 6.5. Can this be added?

  3. Release new symbian version

    The symbian is very popular platform wich is dying, I know. But it is still popular, and mobile phones with symbian Bella are still being released. It would be great to up to date the existing version. I heard that android and iphone use opengl to render 3d maps and symbian doesnt support it, but I think it is not the cause to completely close the symbian project.

  5. Add option to display SpeedTraps on main screen without having to use menu.

    Add in the settings an option to display "Speed Trap" info on main screen. This would display in either the title bar or on the main screen and would have an icon with two numbers: A red number that indicates the # of speedtraps on your route, and a Yellow number that indicates the # of speedtraps not on the route. This would be very useful because speedtraps move (police pull someone over and then sit in new spot), so it helps to have more advanced notice that police are in the area.

  6. Paste to Address Search bar within Windows Mobile

    Windows Mobile version does not allow for Paste to the Address Search bar. I usually receive the address via email or attached in a PDF. Without copy and paste I have to write the address down on paper and then type it back into my mobile in the address bar. Time consuming and awkward!

  9. Symbian S^3 version for Nokia N8 and co ?

    The Symbian S60v5 version can be launched on a N8 but it often crashes. Maybe the S60 version can be adapted to work better on N8 but you're the only ones who can confirm or not ;).

    Thank you

    At the moment this is not planned, as Nokia itself announced the end of Symbian. Sorry guys.

    Create a client application suitable for Samsung Wave (with the new BADA Operating System).

    At the moment this is not planned. The amount of work required makes it hard for us to currently plan support for this platform, though we do want to support as many platforms as possible in the future.

  11. Hide notifications older than XX hours.

    I've seen reports that are a couple hour up to 24 hours old. It'd be nice to be able to have an option that lets users choose the age limit of notifications they'd like to see.

    Display duration for each notification is directly dependent on number of upvotes and ‘not there’s. The more upvotes a report has, the longer it is displayed on the map and vice versa.

  12. Option to automatically disable WiFi

    When transitioning from WiFi to 3G or vice versa, Waze often loses a connection and becomes useless, requiring us to restart the app. I imagine this would be a problem for anyone who drives by a wireless network that they use often (home, work, school, etc.) This could be avoided by giving the user the option to automatically disable WiFi connections within Waze. This option would prevent users from having to disable WiFi before starting Waze every time.

  13. mark/find free parking spots

    Maybe you can add and option in Waze to mark free parking spots, like google "Open Spot" (http://openspot.googlelabs.com/).

    This was available in the early stages of waze, but was not successful at all. In areas where parking was needed, the update was not helpful, and was misleading as it’s hard to cancel an existing report.

  14. Allow the ability to specify the location of a report.

    When reporting an issue, crash, traffic jam, fire, Police activity, the system only gives you the option to report on the road you are on. So for example, if you are at an interchange where you can see the activity on a highway or interstate, but you are not on that road, you can't actually report it properly. Maybe it can be set up that you make a report, and like in google maps, you have a pin dropped on the map that you can move to the correct location, if where you are is not the location of the…

  15. Auto turn screen on/off

    When driving by directions, it would be great if Waze could turn off the screen when there is more than a specified distance to the next turn, and turn the screen on again when I'm within the specified distance.

    We should have the option to set the specified distance to 500m, 1km, 2km, 5km and 10km.

    It would also be nice to have an option to set the screen to turn on for 30 seconds or so if a report within our event radio comes in.

  16. Integrate with Google Latitude

    Would you kindly consider integrating Google Latitude in a future iPhone version? I'd love to autoupdate my waze-less family on where I'm driving and it's a bit awkward having to run waze+glympse or waze+latitudie at the same time. If waze was able to update the Latitude position at least every few minutes or kilometers, it would help a lot. Many thanks in advance, and thanks for waze, it works pretty good although there aren't too many users here yet.

    At the moment this isn’t possible. Hopefully you will find the FB and Twitter integrations sufficient.

  17. Add quick text to road reports

    Typing while driving is dangerous. However, don't you often want to add more information to a road report? Do you go ahead and type that message illegally or do you simply submit something that you know is an incomplete, ambiguous report. What if you had the option to choose from a list of common stock text modifiers to help with your reporting? What if it was possible to edit these to your specifications?

  18. Make waze tolerant of intermittent network connectivity

    Waze relies on a network connection when in use. Many areas I drive in have poor or intermittent network connectivity. Please make the Waze client more tolerant of poor network connections by caching more data of the surrounding map and allow journey data (including new roads) to be cached on the client and uploaded at a later time. Not all areas can rely on good 3G/UMTS network connectivity

  19. Hide notification bar in Android

    Hiding the Notification bar would give a little more screen real estate, but the big deal here is that newer phones have AMOLED screens which can suffer from burn-in, and the notification bar in Android with the screen turned way up while navigating for hours is surely going to cause this. Can we PLEASE hide the notification bar so it doesn't damage our screens? Nexus One, Desire, Incredible, likely others will all be possibly impacted by this.

    this will not solve the issue with these screens, as waze has its own bar (right below the notifications bar) which will not be removed. So we need to think of a better solution that will prevent the burn-in, but hiding the notifications bar will not help.
