  1. 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".

  2. 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.

  4. night icon

    The car icons are not very visible both on the day and the night maps. It would be helpfull if I would be able to select two icons: for day/night maps
    Another work around would be a white silhouette around the icon, so that a blue icon will be more visible over a a blue route, and a red one will be visible on a traffixc jam.
    A Zebra icon (like a British police car) can also be visible - yet less populare...

  6. Option to Ignore Construction Zones

    It would be tremendously helpful to have the ability to ignore construction zones/certain stretches of road. And if possible with the option to automatically ignore if speeds are less than a certain threshold.

  8. Make lock button switch off the screen without locking it

    It would be great if switching on/off the screen could be realized by the lock button with no need to unlock the screen. Code:

    KeyguardLock kgLock;

    public void onCreate() {
    KeyguardManager kgm = (KeyguardManager) getSystemService(Activity.KEYGUARD_SERVICE);
    kgLock = kgm.newKeyguardLock(TAG);
    kgLock.disableKeyguard();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onDestroy() {
        kgLock.reenableKeyguard();
        super.onDestroy();
    }
    
    @Override
    protected void onPause() {
        super.onPause();
        kgLock.reenableKeyguard();      
    }
    
    @Override
    protected void onResume() {
        super.onResume();
        kgLock.disableKeyguard();
    }

  9. Add north south west east direction when reporting from iPhone

    Add preset when reporting anything to waze via iPhone to show which direction drivers will see the report. Accident. Police etc. This also should show in the text description of the report. Same lane or other can help and this may show on the map. But it's hard to tell exactly what lane it's in. Ie, car stopped on shoulder may look on map like it's northbound lane when it's really south. Add direction of travel preset similar to same lane button.

  11. add a plugin method, e.g. radar detector

    There is an iPhone app called "radar active" that allows realtime updates of speed traps. The sounds various radar detectors make (or dataports like on the Valentine V1) could be used to automatically add speed-trap / false alarm information to the map. Android has easy ways to add external hardware, but the microphone could be used on any platform with the right audio processing software.

  15. Speedcam reporting in Client.

    Please add possibillity to set speed limit of road when reporting speed cameras. This will make it 10 times easier to get quality data. Perhaps even when reporting the speed cam, an quick enter speed limit dialogue with the road signs of the country. Something that could be downloaded with the voice files perhaps?

  16. Ask user on which street he is if GPS accuracy insufficient to determinate it automatically

    Sometimes in the beginning of driving or if you driving differently from Wase suggestion Waze can lock on wrong street, if it is two close streets inside GPS accuracy region. I think it will be good if Wase will ask on which street you are exactly if it detects that GPS accuracy is insufficient to determinate it automatically.

  17. Use acceleration sensors to improve navigation

    I think it will be good idea to use acceleration sensors to improve navigation when GPS signal is weak. For example in tunnels. Also it may help in situation when GPS accuracy is insufficient. For example to better determination of position in roundabout.

  18. Not there outside routing

    We need an option to report "Not There" on incidents, even if it's not on the planned route. Now it's only possible when a popup comes up for the planned route. The "Not There" option should be present on any popup when clicking on an incident icon, even if it's on the other lane or outside the planned route, but within viewing distance.

  19. Signal deviation from "normal" work-home route

    So I am using Waze mostly for avoiding traffic going to and from work, I suppose like most people. It would be helpful to have a feature where it gives an audible alert if it is plotting a course that is different from the "normal" one to avoid traffic. I imagine this could work by determining the best route assuming no significant traffic, and giving an alert if it is plotting a different course than that. Same thing goes for changes in mid-course due to accidents, jams, etc., that occur after I start. Normal navigation announcements aren't too useful on…

  20. Wazer tracking in real time

    It would be great to track in real time one or two people, with their consent, possibly by pinging them to agree, so you can see their movements at the same time with your own live. It would make it much easier to meet up with someone, etc.  The SpeedFreak App let's you track up to 4 people in real time and works quite well.
