  1. Alerting people about highway emptiness

    One thing that could make it better would be to have the ability to say streets or highways are empty so people know before hand where to go if they should get on the highway or not.

  2. Share and listen what others are listening to or personal radio station

    How about an option to share with others what I'm listening to. Even going further and this one would catch like wildfire listen to people while they are driving like tuning in to their personal station, so if a person wants to share something they turn on their personal broadcast on . Sometimes advise , idea , entertainment comes while UR driving or u want to share with people whatever. So if a person likes a station they can like them and book mark them so they can listen to them next time.

  3. Icons as option

    iPhone app: can you please give an option to hide other people icon but I still want to get their data for road condition and warning. Some times there are always too many icons on freeway and its preventing to see road condition and other warnings! So it would be cool option to show or hide others

  4. iPod assess while navigating

    waze is an excellent navigation app. I waze is a great navigation app. I even think its better than google maps and motion gpx. The only feature that it is missing is access to your iPod on the iPhone while navigating, like motion gpx has . Please add this feature on.

  5. Pausing Waze when there's an incoming call.

    When someone calls, Waze keeps saying the navigation instructions, and therefore making it impossible to hear the person you're talking to!
    It should be possible to automatically pause it everytime the phone gets calls.

  6. Pls create waze map for Philippines

    Philippines is not included yet in your list of countries. This would really be very helpful to commuters navigating thru traffic in this country.

  8. Waze needs to understand letter streets in cities (e.g. N St. is not North St.)

    In cities all over, letter streets are common. Waze consistently voices N St. as North St., S St. as South St., etc. I guarantee you, in 99% (at least) of cities, N followed by St. will always be N St. not North St.

    Allow push notifications for hazards or police. I tend to lock my phone by habit and I don't find out about them until it's too late.

  10. Locking against editing sucks

    The locking against editing of streets is very annoying. On my way to work (about 30km) i found more than 10 errors, and very often I'm not allowed to correct them. It is too complicated to set an unlock request before being allowed to edit. So how can your maps improve if the normal user is not able to correct map errors?

  11. I would love to see the ability to plot a holiday lights display on the map.

    I'd like o be able to plot the great holiday lights displays in my area so I can tell other Wazers about them. Additionally one could have Waze plot a lights tour path to follow.

  13. Need a practice mode. Why? Read on...

    After using it for couple of months, I still trying to get used to using it.

    One thing I wish it have is a practice mode where we can play around with it and make traffic reports.

    Yes, I know there are online instructions on how to use Waze.

    Why?

    Some people like me like to play around with it. If we have a chance to play around with it, we can get used to using it.

    That way, when we drive, we already know what we are doing.

    As it is now, I sometimes have to take my eyes…

  15. Privacy: Exposure Minimization Technique

    A nice privacy enhancement would be to set this up so that when you are within a half mile, or (even better) within a user defined radius of your destination, to automatically go invisible. Another alternative would be to set it up so that if Δ(X,Y) is all within a small area - such as 10 feet to the toilet and 10 feet back (for those that can’t let go of the phone) that the client stops reporting user data.

    I understand that the 2 minute delay is a way of mitigating privacy… However, my wife got home last night…

    Please consider adding the number of drivers to the traffic speed display. The greater number of drivers the greater the confidence in the speed displayed. Conversely if a speed along a corridor is based on only a few drivers the accuracy is questionable.

  17. A more credible alert...

    The following factors would give a "certainty" rating to each report:
    * Number of wazers ahead of me (within .5-2 miles)
    * Number of minutes since the alert was posted
    * Number of "thanks" attached to report
    * Whatever logic Waze uses to determine more credible users...

  18. Repetitive Alerts Should be Summarized

    Recently, I was using Waze on Northbound I-280 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The traffic was pretty bad. Waze is pretty popular around here and folks were reporting the bad traffic. So much so in fact that you could barely see the map. It seems to me that if you have more than two or three people basically reporting the same thing (in this case stopped traffic) you can simply summarize and say "multiple bad traffic reports" or some such. The current extremely cluttered screen is basically useless.

    In this case, I was using an iPhone, but I think…

  20. The time to reply when asked if hazard or police were at location. Need to add 10-15 second. Usually run out of time before hitting button.

    The time to reply when asked if hazard or police were at location is too short Need to add 10-15 second. Usually run out of time before hitting button. People are going to drop way points a few seconds after the obstacle usually.
