  1. Please add LiveXLive to audio apps.

    Not everyone is an iHeart or Pandora fan. I am an old lady who loves music my way. It's apparent you guys aren't gonna allow access to Amazon music. So how about LiveXLive (formally Slicker).

    Available on Android phones and iPhones.
    By default compass is displayed on screen tap.
    To always show it go to Settings – Map display – Quick access – Always show. In Map display settings it is also possible to lock North.

  6. Child reminder alert

    The Child reminder when activated reminds you to check if you have your child with you but it happens at the end of the journey at which point its probably too late at this point its probably just an alert to tell you you don't have a child anymore. What's the point in having it at the end of the journey?

    The one and only purpose of the child reminder in Waze app is to make sure you don’t forget your child in the car (rushing to the airport or busy with planning a shopping list while driving to the mall).

  7. Address change

    Hello!
    I wasn't sure where to contact about this issue. Top Buttons, Inc. is listed on your app with our old address. I was hoping to update it. The address should be 236 N. Kentucky Ave, Lakeland, FL 33801. Thank you for your help in this matter!

  13. Keep waze on top

    When making a phonecall via hands free, waze should stay on top. It's pointless showing the call app, because 1. My screen then locks, so I can't unlock without touching the phone. 2. I can't get directions while I am on the outgoing call...

  16. NEW FEATURE

    Add a new feature that allows waze to voice out hazards ahead like road kill, traffic, and stopped vehicles. Also, when police are reported ahead. This new feature would allow drivers to get all alerts even if they are not using the waze app as a navigation tool. Drivers would be able to set this feature on and off by Bluetooth in their car as well. This would be helpful for everyone driving even if they do not need a gps.

  17. Add the "sound" options to the "quick access" settings

    Add the "sound" options to the "quick access" settings so you can tap the screen and get a sound icon (just like the zoom feature). It could give the 3 choices (on/off/alerts only). Currently it is difficult to turn sound on/off which I often do.

  18. Switching locations as easy as it is for Google Maps

    If I'm currently at location A (say), the current version of Waze (for Android) don't allow me to explore the route between 2 other different locations (B & C say). It only uses my current location (A) to any other locations so could you please make it possible to have two search boxes to allow us to explore the route of any 2 locations (e.g. From B to C)?, and also make it easy to switch between these 2 locations by having a double headed vertical arrows that can be used to switch the locations with a single tap to…

    It’s a bit tricky, but possible. Here’s the flow:
    1. Select an address, which would be your starting point
    2. On the preview location page tap on ‘More’ button (three dots), tap ‘Select as starting point’
    3. Select an address which would be your destination
    4. Tap ‘Go’ – Waze would calculate a route from selected start point to the selected destination point.

  19. What happened to Cookie Monster?

    I would have voted on the previous posts but...

    I don’t have a reason to use your app except that it used to entertain my children with the Cookie Monster voice.
