  1. Add a "Can't do that !" button

    Sometimes, Waze tells me to take a road and I can't, because it is blocked for construction, or because of a map error (road recently became one-way). When I pass the road, Waze recalculates and often, tells me to make a U-turn and take that same road. Which I still can't.

    When Waze tells me to turn where I can't, I'd like to be able to press a "Can't do that" button which would have 2 effects :
    - Report a "Wrong driving instructions" map problem.
    - Recalculate an other way to reach my destination, without this particular road.

  2. Highway exits!

    Can you make it so exits on highways give you the name of the road and not exit number?

  3. ETA Only, Time Remaining Only or Both.

    In the Settings there should be a feature to have the Main Screen show ''ETA Only'', ''Time Remaining Only'' or Both.

    As it is now, the display switches between the two and the user has to keep looking at the screen to get the results they need.

    This is NOT SAFE!

    As noted on the Android Market, a lot of users want it to display just one or the other, not the schizoid way it is now.

  5. Suggestion on Live Reports (Cross Streets)

    It would be nice to know the closest cross street or major cross street of the report. Currently I see only the street that the user reported it on. Some of those roads are miles long and it would help to know where so I may change my route.

  6. Create a "soft warning" for known situations.

    For example: A location where speed traps are consistently reported would have a warning in a radius such as "speed traps have been reported here." The color of the warning could fade from red to orange as reports decline or vice versa. There's one street I travel where there's a cop shooting radar 80% of the time. There could be a warning about that regardless of if a Wazer had been through recently.

  8. option for automatic bug reporting

    When waze displays a message that it has encountered a bug and asks me if I would like to send it the timer is very short and I often cant tap OK in time while driving.

    It would be great if there was a setting that allowed the user to select "always send bug/error reports"

  9. navigation waypoints

    Only mapquest currently features navigation waypoints.

    On a journey from locationA to locationZ one might want to pre-plan gas fill up locations, or additional points of interest. These are waypoints, or places to stop along the way.

    LocationA to locationB to locationC ... to locationZ

    To accomplish this now in Waze is a bit tedious

    locationA to locationB
    locationB to locationC
    locationC to locationZ

    One ought be able to enter all the locations and either specify the order of the waypoints OR allow waze to optimize some- or…

  10. Privacy zone: stop reporting *near* home/work‏

    Having read the Waze ideology of location reporting at journey endpoints with respect to privacy I have deemed it wanting greatly.

    Please consider a feature to allow one to create flexible (arbitrarily variable) zones around one's home, workplace, church, etc, where upon entering one's position is no longer publicly visible.

    I am confident a variation of this will mitigate privacy journey endpoint concerns

  11. police: trailing/leading (in motion vs stationary)

    Reports of stationary police are nice, but reporting highway patrol on the prowl with that feature is untenable.

    Please consider a feature to report actively pacing highway patrol with modifier for leading (ahead of officer), or trailing (behind officer).

    There should be an option to anonymize the report should one be traveling WITH- or accelerating AWAY from- the highway patrol at speeds exceeding posted limits.

  13. Improve spoken voice prompts speed

    I often find that when driving at speeds faster than 50mph and approaching roundabouts(slowing down of course) off slip roads from dual carriageways/ Motorways often the voice prompts are to slow in mentioning in what turn I need resulting in me needing to go around the roundabout twice to understand the given direction or as the case in the last few days actually being told which turn whilst on the roundabout going past the turn I needed!!

    Please look into this as my Garmin unit still gets used a lot because of this problem making it sometimes unsafe to consider…

  14. navigation list

    bring back the navigation list. WAZE is good but occasionally makes mistakes and support and be able to know where you are being led. I would suggest the list pop-up when you touch the bar of the current next turn.

  15. [iPhone - Waze 3.0] Add back your Waze mood icon & badge.

    With the iPhone 3.0 upgrade, I miss seeing my mood icon with group badge and status badge. Perhaps you can replace the large waze icon on the bottom left corner with your mood icon with the appropriate badges.

  16. Optional "no map" (trip computer) view when route is known

    8 out of 10 times I use Waze driving to and from work, a route I know very well so I don't need Waze to show me my position on the map.
    What I instead would like is a "trip computer" kind of interface, showing me things like my current speed, current speed limit (if known), maybe a color code for traffic ahead on route (green, yellow, red), ETA, current road name (nice to have, not need to have - I know where I am), live updates of incidents (needs to update themselves automatically), textual navigation instructions like "turn right…

  17. referal

    There is available an access to 20 sites (further - more), would like to put on them referal the reference for downloading Waze.

  18. Show more navigation instructions when losing GPS signal

    It would be nice if the client could show more than the next turn (on the screen) when driving by navigation and the GPS signal is lost.

    The next turn is shown in green on the bottom left corner, and the 3 following driving instructions could show up in orange above this when GPS signal is lost.

    If there is a speed cam between two of the next turns, is should also show up in this "navigation list".

  19. Using of G-Sensor

    If Waze will collect data from G Sensor, than it can automatically detect holes on the road, crashes and bad roads (4×4). Program may ask user what kind of hole it is - is it mistake, real hole, etc. If sensor detects constant shakes, than Waze can mark road as bad.
