  1. Display current location GPS Coordinates and share them with friends

    when it comes to navigation gps coordinates play an important role as it pin points the location you want other's to know if all else fails, like street names and landmark. Everything will change but not gps coordinates

  3. Live data freshness on the road : how many Wazers drove here recently

    It would be nice to have some kind of visual feedback (not necessarily on the map, but maybe a gauge on the screen) on how many wazers drove though this road recently (like in the past hour or so). So that we can get some confidence rating on the data (or lack thereof).
    It could be used for routing as well, maybe by letting the user prefer itineraries with great confidence, ie where some people drove recently.
    Finally, it could aloso be used to give some kind of confidence indice on the itinerary.

  4. Fade music on alerts/notifications/Turn-by-Turn

    It would be really nice if Waze faded music during audio events (not pause.. pause is a little bit jerky and makes you lose the music beat)
    I use my phone (Android) as a Media Center on my car, it controls the audio and video on it. I play music using it (outstanding equalizer settings and audio effects), and the fade function is really necessary so I don't keep distracting looking for corners on GPS.
    Also, on my own opinion, fading looks real classy and professional.

    Original Google Maps' software does that fading, but I don't want to go back…

  5. When I take a call when using waze, after the call ends I get the lock screen instead of goign back to waze.

    When you recieve a call when using waze, after the call ends you get the lock screen instead of goign back to waze. it should go back to the map screen.
    Also, there sould be a button to get to the dialer without leaving waze.
    Other than that - great app. keep up the good work

  6. want to create link on website, that make Waze destination point by clicking on it (using smartphone browser)

    Invent URN format like waze:// and register waze to handle it. Then will be possible to create Waze destinations on websites to easy navigate.
    Same URN can be used as easy destination sharing with friends.

  7. How about annoucing police or traffic jams by voice instead of pop ups.

    Announcing in the voice warning police in area or traffic ahead in x miles.

  8. Calculate ETA based on own average speed

    ETA calculation seems to be based on traffic conditions and general average speed. ETA calculation seems to be inaccurate when driving below the average speed of the road-segment as it keeps increasing while driving with constant (low) speed.

    It would be great if ETA calculation would also be accurate for vehicles going below average speeds (e.g. trucks in europe etc.)

  9. Google+/Latitude check-in button

    The Foursquare check-in feature is nice, but I prefer Google Latitude/Google+ check-ins and would love to have a check-in button for that so I don't have to exit Waze to get to it.

  11. Personal statistics

    Would be nice to get stats about your personal routes : average travel time between your first 2 or 3 destinations, average waze error on ETA (accuracy and precision - see wikipedia for the difference), time you spend driving per day, number of wazers you cross... one can invent all sort of fun and useful statistics.

  12. First of all, this is a great app, as far as alerts would you add EMS to list.

    First of all, this is a great app, as far as alerts; would you add EMS to Report menu? And maybe move Chit Chat to the Main Menu? Thank again.

  13. Add "Help me" button

    I use Waze all the time while i drive the roads around Israel and i see people stuck on the road a lot. but i cannot always stop and assist since i am driving too fast or on the far lane when i cannot reach them. this "help me" button will pop up (like any other report) and ask for help: maybe a person needs a jump, or a ride to somewhere, or help changing a tire. the respondent will have an "on my way" button to come and help that person.

  14. Show slow traffic in yellow or red

    Even if users don't send a notification of slow traffic, if the system detects that a few users are slowing down, change the display of the road to yellow or red. Currently, on the 118 freeway there are some spots about 2 miles long that are very slow, however Waze shows normal.

  16. To be able to fix a destination by a button " Target GPS " when we arrive at destination?

    It would be interesting to be able to fix a destination by a button " Target GPS " when we arrive at the destination with WAZE. In this manner, we could very precisely memorize a point of arrival in the favourites.

    What do you think about it?

    Sorry for my English...

  18. Plugins!

    Instead of competing against other products and services, why not allow them to be PART OF (feed info into) Waze? Plugins, if you will.

    Case in point: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOyhnwA6MQo

    Escort Live is a social driving program for people who use Passport Radars. Wouldn't it make more sense for everyone ("them" because they'd be able to enjoy Waze and its massive user database, and "us" because we'd get the real-time radar info?) if Escort Live was available inside Waze?

    Waze is great because it's so clean, so I understand not wanting to have other data services "clutter up" the experience, so perhaps…

  19. Add forward, back buttons on pop ups

    I would love to see a forward and back button on the pop up notifications. Many times I'll glance down and slightly catch what the pop up said, but It's gone and I'm unable to go back through it. Then when I stop again I see the same ones over. It would be nice to scroll through because not all are important to the driver.

  20. import addresses

    While I have an Android phone, I think that this may be of general usage.

    I'd like to see an import/export capability, perhaps to Dropbox, etc.

    I have had to reinstall Waze, and I lost my addresses, so it would have been nice to be able to simply import the book back. Also, my wife and I have many addresses in common, so it would have been nice to not have to enter them both.
