  1. Allow people to upload their own Waze profile picture (like their car) to get easily identified while driving...

    Hi people. Please forgive me for my average English, I'm a French Waze user...

    At the moment, the only way to display a picture when clicking on a Wazer is to link your Facebook account with your Waze client.

    I guess that a lot of people (like me) don't want to link their Facebook profile with the Waze client or they don't own one.

    My idea => Create a function on the Waze client to allow people to upload their own pictures.

    The goal => When a Wazer is in the vicinity of your location, you can click on it…

  2. Fix Radar on route

    Could you include the fix radar in the report list and especially in the report list "On route".

  4. Weather Icons instead of Hazard Icons on Map

    Weather reports show up as Hazard icons. While it does say what the weather condition is below, it is not easy to read if you are driving in bad weather. It would be nice to see weather icons reported by other Waze users.

  5. Hybrid Zoom Mode

    Add a third option to the zoom choices. A hybrid mode that uses the closer of the speed or distance zoom. This would allow for the map to zoom in as you approach your next turn at highway speeds and also zoom into your location in slow traffic to show possible alternate routes, while otherwise staying zoomed out.

  7. Please make next steps quick/easy to see

    In heavy traffic, one often has to know about upcoming turns well in advance to get into the correct lane. But to see upcoming nav steps in Waze requires clicking to the menu, then swiping to the second page, then clicking Nav List -- way too many steps. Please make it easy to see the next step or whole list from the main screen. I suggest enabling a jump to the nav list if the user clicks on the name of the next street. (I intuitively try this; may have been default functionality on a prior GPS.)

  8. Set existing favorite as "Home" or "Work"

    Right now, you can only set "Home" and "Work" by searching for an address. Most of the time, New Zealand (and I'm guessing other international addresses too) do not return an accurate result.

    The work around is to create another two favorites called home and work that are based off GPS position and use those.

    As a user, it would simply make sense for Waze to allow me to set a favorite as my "home" or "work".

  9. More icons for existing report types

    Currently many of the icons displayed on the map are shared across different reports, this means the driver must tap them to find out what they are (if they do not pop up automatically) eg. "Car on shoulder" and "object on road". This is frustrating when some warnings are fairly insignificant and others more serious, like my previous example. Additional icons would allow drivers to understand the reports at a glance with no extra taps required when issuing a report.

  10. Interval Tone for Speeding

    Pls provide a setting for interval tone warnings for a selected speed threshold - ex. if/when I go >/= 70mph give a tone every 5/10/15/30 seconds. Doesn't have to be anything fancy - a simple beep or boop will do.

  11. Logging Options on Waze (distance, driving time, gas costs)

    It would be great that Waze could log some data about your trip.
    So you could include a kind of dashboard that could display your speed, average speed, distance driven, a kind of trip distance resetable by user, as well a fuel logging calculator.
    The fuel logging calculator should enable you to register the price spent and the ammount of fuel you've filled. This would be great for drivers to make some stats in order to reduce costs.

  13. Possibly Clear Up what is meant by the "Traffic Jam" reports

    Instead of having "Moderate", "Heavy" and "Standstill", why not clarify these categories a little more. They could possibly be instead "Congestion", "Slow Down" and "Standstill". I think these adequately reflect the different degrees of traffic jams that occur. Congestion is still dangerous but might not reflect a great decrease in speed. When drivers will have to decrease their speed that is useful to know, and of course "Standstills" are self explanatory.
    An alternative option could be to elaborate on the provided categories more instead of changing them. They just seem a little ambiguous.

  14. Fading Report Icons

    After a report is added to the map, the icons should slowly begin to become transparent. This way the age of upcoming reported incidents can be determined at a glance. If a fading report icon is reconfirmed by another Wazer, it should regain 100% of its opacity and the fading cycle should begin again.

  15. iPhone4G - landscape mode not correct at time zero

    more of a bug really.
    If Waze is running before I rotate the phone then the switch to landscape mode works. If I launch Waze after rotating the phone (like I do when I snap the phone into my car mount before starting Waze) then the display is stuck sideways.

  16. Eco mode

    How about an Eco mode that would give you a warning beep if you accelerate or decelerate too fast or drive over the posted speed limit? Of course, the driving speed (for traffic) would need adjusted (because if you're driving 10 under the speed limit for MPG reasons that doesn't mean that there's traffic issues).

  17. REVERSIBLE ROADS

    There are some countries (At least in Santiago, Chile and Mexico City where I live) that due to a high traffic times, some of the main streets gets REVERSIBLE, meaning that from certain times of the day the regular way of the street is REVERSED so the traffic can be more fluid. I would like to propose the facility of making REVERSIBLE roads

  18. Add shields to on and off ramps

    When a road type ramp has a route number on it, a shield should be generated for the navigation instruction. For example, a on-ramp named "to US-27" should produce "to <US-27 shield>". Similarly: "Exit 29: US-19 / US-23 / SR-43" should produce "Exit 29: <US-19 shield> <US-23 shield> <SR-43 shield>.

  19. Indicator on alert for direction

    When an alert is displayed on the map, it is generally impossible to tell whether the alert applies to the current direction of travel or the opposite.

  20. Add more levels too Avoid Highway option

    With the Avoid Highway option off, Waze is way too aggressive in routing to freeways. The the Avoid Highway on, all types of highways are avoided from minor to freeway. There should be additional options to Avoid Freeways, Avoid Major Highways and Freeways.

    Yes, Waze is supposed to figure out the best route based on information without this level of direction, but in fact it does not, at least in some areas. These options would allow some user input based on experience in directing the routing.

    This would be especially useful for trips that include multiple type of environments such…
