  2. Semaphore optimization of speed, driving time and fuel economy.

    To drive faster and keep fuel try to know the semaphore timing.
    In this case can advise drive slower or faster (if possible) to drive non-stop in the semaphore green corridor, when possible.

  4. Waze's own chat

    I was picking up my little brother yesterday and in the meanwhile i noticed that if i didnt have to switch between whatsapp and waze in order to chat with people not interested in waze, it would be even cooler!

    I mean. I may log in so i could contact "a friend" that i know is connected to waze for example, just to chat. The facebook friends list is awful, because .. what? 30% of your list uses waze? and when they wanna chat with you, they dont think of the waze-3.5-facebook chat a a good system, so i have…

  6. Brackground

    As all iPhone users know, each time you make a call or use the maps application, and you exit the application to go see something else, the iOS will display on the top of the screen a colored bar showing that the process on the app you exited is still going; and by just touching that part of the screen it will return back to that app to whatever is doing (calling, following a route, etc) this is a helpful suggestion because while driving you want to have your eyes on the road and not on your phone trying to…

  7. Lockscreen Route View

    After using the new maps on iOS 6 I could only come up with a little amount of good new features the maps app has. The most helpful one is that the route you are following is displayed on our lock screen, so you can lock your cellphone to avoid people to use your phone while using the gps to get to a please, and also to save some battery. So adding this feature of showing the route on the iPhone would be a great idea, just by the fact that on the road you want to have the information…

  8. Show traffic, not map for regular trips

    For routes I take every day, I'd prefer to see a stacked, summary of each turn together with anticipated delays for each turn.

    Almost like the list view at the top right of the map, but with traffic on it and with the non-congested parts, diminished.

  9. Hide work line on favorites list

    I work from home, so I have an empty "work" slot taking up space in my favorites. It does no good, so it's just a wasted spot that could be better used with a different favorite.

  10. Custom Road Hazard tags

    Allow for custom Road Hazard labels. The current selection is quite general, but it would be nice to have the ability to pre-create custom hazard tags for those times when adding a description isn't possible.

  11. Aggregated traffic/report data to see Trends!

    Online or in the app, provide a feature to show aggregated data. This will allow us to see all reports for say, the past month, in our area. We can spot areas that have traffic on a recurring basis, places with repeat police reports.

  12. Color Coding for "Traffic" Reports Indication

    To Use different Color Codes for :

    "Moderate" - "Yellow" Color
    "Heavy" - "Orange" Color
    "Standstill" - "Red" Color

      This will indirectly help us to minimize our attention to the Screen without touch the Icon for Status of that Traffic in that location. It is good to Ease of Reference as Currently, I need to Press on that Icon Everything while on the move which is quite dangerous sometimes.

  13. Announcements depending on speed

    I recommend that Waze adjust the "trigger distance" for pre-alerts when traveling quickly.

    For example, currently Waze pre-alerts "In one-tenth of a mile ..." regardless of speed.

    If you are driving 60 MPH, you cover the one-tenth of a mile in a mere 6-seconds ... by that time, Waze is already alerting you (AGAIN) that it's time to make the turn.

    I'm all for voice alerts ... but when the app gabs for 10-seconds straight because of back-to-back announcements, eh....

  15. Show direction that other wazers are travelling on the navigation map

    When viewing the navigation map, what if you showed a little arrow indicating the direction that the other wazers on the map are traveling? I can't tell if the wazer ahead of me is traveling the same direction as me and I am just catching up to them or they are on the other side of the road driving towards me. You could put a little black direction arrow in their icon.

  16. Roam free in parking lot

    If a parking lot is marked as a landmark in WME, let the client roam freely within the area without 'snapping' to the nearest road. The advantage is that your location relative to entry/exit can be seen and the screen doesn't jump all over the place trying to guess which lane/road you are nearest.

  17. Give option to specifically show nearest "pac-man" roads, if we want to do extra munching and not have to search for them.

    There are times when I might have a few extra minutes, not in a rush, and wouldn't mind doing some munching for extra points (and to help your maps). Would be cool if there was an option for something like that (e.g. "show nearby munching roads" or "show munching roads in red/highlight them"). Thanks for reading!

  18. support alternative partitions: EXT, UDF (motivate SD Alliance policy change)

    The risk of sdio / Sdcard corruption radically increases with respect to capacity (>16gigs).

    SD association foolishly continues to mandate fat32 instead of defaulting/allowing EXT2 - EXT4 or newer.

    https://www.sdcard.org/

    relying on binary mysticism instead of publishing formatting parameters for command line

    https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/

    Yes, many leveling algorithms CURRENTLY geared for FAT32 but it would be mind numbingly simple to add both UDF- and EXT capacity to support reformatting/repartitioning ... or support for various file systems / volumes.

    Take a moment to request support for at least both UDF- and EXT

    https://www.sdcard.org/about_sda/contact_us

    EXT with journaling

    UDF 1.50, plain volume, cross…
