  1. Don't connect to the speaker when voice is muted

    I like to listen to music streamed via bluetooth from my phone. While running waze, even though I have the spoken navigation disabled, every time directions would've been announced, the music volume dips briefly. It appears that waze is trying to attach to the speaker even though it isn't saying anything. Please have it check for being muted before taking control away from other applications that use the phone's audio.

  2. Bridge opening

    We have a lot of draw/lift bridges in the area and it would be nice if we could either report the bridge opening as a "Wazer" or if there was a way to gather that info from the web to auto generate on our app.

  3. School buses & GPS

    School buses have GPS now. It would be nice if the app would show active school buses in the area so we can avoid frequent and delaying stops along their route.

  4. Button for quick change type of route

    Could you add the button for fast choice between fastest/shortest/optimal way, pelase? There is to much clicks trough menu-options-navigation. Sometimes there is no enough time, because the customer is going late a he is pretty nervous. Thanks you, Taxi driver from Prague

  5. reopen waze automatically after x seconds when switched to other apps during driving

    The idea is to have the system recognize that the user is driving and waze is on but not displayed. It will automatically return to waze after x seconds. The timing will be configured by the user. Thanks Aner

  6. Make "on my route" the default tab for reports

    It seems that people would be more interested in reports that are on their route instead of around me. You can save us all a click by making on my route the default tab.

  7. Daily Weekday Morning Traffic Report

    I would like to receive a morning traffic report every weekday when I wake up to know of any hazards or traffic delays and the fastest / recommended route prior to departing to work (same destination every morning). Ideally, this would be pushed to the notification center and have the ability to be spoken (briefly stating that your preferred route is slower than usual or a wreck at a location and to use HWY 80 instead, etc.).

  10. Crashing issues on Android

    I think waze is great, unfortunately it doesn't work on my new Samsung Galaxy Y Pro B5510. Every time I try to enter a destination or touch just about anything on the screen it crashes.

  11. Track my car's vitals; build database for community benefits

    This is a big idea, no small undertaking I know. I'd like to combine my GPS app with the functionality of an app like Gas Cubby, which tracks my MPG at every fill-up and alerts me when my car is due for maintenance.

    Here's how I envision it:
    -I tell Waze what car I drive: ex: 2003 Saturn Vue, 6 cyl, automatic
    -Every time I stop to fill up, I tell Was
    a) What my current odometer reads (waze should know how many miles I've driven in theory, but this is a checksum validation in case I forgot to open…

  12. I would like to change default settings in map editor - new nodes

    I would like to change default settings in map editor - checking all nodes after drawing few roads takes a lot of time (shift+z, then "Q" and "W", then "ctrl+s" etc.). It would be easier if all new nodes were with "green arrows" (crossroads without any restriction - you can turn anywhere). A lot of new users forget about nodes and that's why routing doesn't work or gives strange results.

  13. Roles for Wazers

    Suggestion: I'd like to see users be able to select 'roles' so some users can be 'law enforcement' and others can be Dept of Transportation and such. This would require some type of 'vetting' by either using an official email or by requiring users to receive a minimum # of matching alerts (police roadside) at the same location as a wazer who has selected 'law enforcement). I have a number of cop friends who would love to be able to use waze while on duty and the public know where they are. I suspect this would also give other government…

  14. Fix vocal guidance on Nexus 4 running Android 4.3

    It's been MONTHS since the vocal guidance doesn't work any more on many if not all Nexus 4 devices.running Android 4.3 ! Many forum threads talk about it, but there is yet no fix!
    I'm French, but the issue also occurs in english : "in 200 meters, take left on Churchill Avenue" becomes "meters........... on"
    Please don't let Waze become that pointless...

  17. INCREASE size of the Exit number while driving on highways, etc.

  19. Change the way Waze avoids tolls

    Waze does not work well to route to locations that require a toll if you have the avoid tolls setting on.

    My current understanding is that waze chooses the route with the fewest segments marked as toll segments. Instead it should count a continuous segment without exits or intersections as one toll and choose the fastest route.
