  2. Suggestion to generate more value and Products in Waze company.

    Hi Man,
    There are some GPS like Garmin that offer a traffic information by radio in real time, but the information that they provide is not so real time like the Wase information. I suggest you to sell this service to the final customers or to Garmin and another GPS companies. It will generate a new way to gain money at Waze company. Another interesting thing is to sell them the information of POIs and general informations like radar, accidents, etc with radio update. I'm sure that is a easy way to generate more value to your company. Best regards,…

  3. Ability to increase font size.

    Those of us who see distance fine but need reading glasses could use the abolity to increase street name and POI size. It's one if the reasons why I don't use Waze as often as I'd like to.
    Many thanks

  4. Add option to Avoid Tunnels

    For various reasons drivers may wish to avoid tunnels when navigating. This should be an option along side with Avoid Highways and Avoid Toll Roads.

  5. Enhanced Hazard Reporting by adding "Affecting Flow of Traffic" option

    Everybody has seen a car on the side of the road but how many of those are actually affecting the flow of traffic? People post them to gain points but often times it is not useful information.

  6. Would like to be able to move a marked hazard.

    Sometimes I can't report a hazard in the exact location due to having to drive. When I finally am able to mark a location, I am often far away from the actual event.

  7. Make pop-up traffic notifications smaller or more discrete.

    Pop-up traffic notifications are too big. I can't see the road in question, especially since many roads in don't have names and I need visual clues to know exactly where the congestion is. It would really help to have a more discrete notification in a bar above or below the main view while the map pans over to the road in question.

  8. Hazard on the Shoulder

    When selecting a hazard on the shoulder, there is only an option for a car on the shoulder. How about adding truck on the shoulder?

  9. Time lapse photos

    On road trips it would be a cool feature to have a time lapse photo feature that can post to Facebook or Twitter as I am heading to my destination.

  10. I would like to tap the ETA to iMessage my ETA to a preferred recipient (three buttons - most used, most recent, or from Contacts)

    Tap the ETA button and a menu would pop-up with three buttons - 1. the recipient most frequently sent an ETA, 2. the recipient (different from 1.) most recently sent an ETA, and 3. Field that searches Contacts. Then iMessage the Wazer username, destination address, and ETA. Example: WazerUser1 will arrive at 531 17th Street, Milwaukee, WI at 10:25PM in 15 minutes. See you there!

  12. China SNS Market

    As you may already noticed Waze client in china is not very popular. One reason was translation quality is not acceptable, the other main reason is Waze integrated SNS function is not fully functional since China GOV is blocking facebook and twitter connections. To work around this Waze may just try integrate chinese based SNS network into client as plugins. Mentioned SNS providers includes "Sina WeiBo", "Netease WeiBo", "Tencent WeiBo" etc...

  13. Allow Social Network Reporting of Speedlimits to improve accuracy of speedlimit database

    If you allow the user base to report speed limits it would be more accurate than having a static database of speed limits. Also there should be an option for "Variable Speed Limit" for places where the speed limit changes depending on traffic (for example, I-90 and I-5 in Seattle, WA have variable speed limits that range from 30 to 60 mph). There should also be a temporary construction speed limit option in areas where there is construction--you can pop up a verification screen so users to confirm whether the construction speed limit still applies once or twice each day.

  14. road alerts popups at red light

    Make road alerts more gentle. I mean, a big opaque window eats up half of the screen, and waze scrolls back and forth.

    My idea:
    * make the popup smaller (just pictograms, smaller fonts)
    * make it translucent
    * don't scroll, just zoom out a bit, and show the direction if it won't fit on the map (like a cartoon bubble)

  16. fewer touches to get navigation started

    it seems to take a lot of clicks (er, touches) to get navigation started.

    1) Enter (or speak) address
    2) Choose from list of addresses (even if there's only one address)
    3) Touch GO
    4) Touch GO (again, can be skipped)

    tough to do if the car is already in motion. Or so I hear. I would never be mucking with my phone or tablet while in motion.

  17. when showing the direction list, DON'T resize the text to fit in the box.

    Resizing the text leads to some very small text. Instead, resize the box.

  19. Option to upload a picture previously taken instead of just taking them from within the client.

    I took a picture of an accident the other day. When deciding to report it to Waze right as I was passing it, I wanted to attach my picture but couldn't. Since I had just passed it, I also couldn't take a new picture.

    I think the option to attach a picture stored on the phone would be very useful.

  20. 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.
