  1. Why can't I drive the different routes I wish to use for work, whilst recording the route with something similar to the pave roads option.

    Why can't I drive the different routes I wish to use for work, whilst recording the route with something similar to the pave roads option. i.e before I start driving turn "route recording mode" on. I drive so many times to my job but EVERY time it tells me to take a ever so slightly different route, that I know takes longer. I am being patient, i have been told it will learn my route eventually, but I can imagine that lots of people will get frustrated and leave Waze very quickly by this situation.

    I'm sure that if more…

  2. Offer a "Known Enforcement Point" report

    Offer a "Known Enforcement Point" report the way trapster does it. Report an area where police tend to hide and take radar.

    1-you can include the draw of BICYCLE inside MY WAZE, togheter with the other car's, because sometimes i use waze riding my bike.

    2-include the design of a DISABLE PERSON over a car draw, to tell to the other wazers that in that car there is a disable, so when that person needs help they already know whose the car is.

  4. On an iPhone - If I starting entering a destination to search, the message will pop up asking me to resume navigation.

    On an iPhone - If I starting entering a destination to search, the message will pop up asking me to resume navigation. I can't hit yes or no, because the keyboard is in the way. I need to hit search on the keyboard, then hit no, then go back and redo my search. This could be fixed by closing the keyboard when messages popup.

  5. Reports block area of interest - perhaps have it float off with arrow pointing to location?

    I love the reports but when the app floats to the AOI it's blocked so I'm not really sure where the report was made, sometimes it's very ambiguous and it names a street in the report. If the image of that report could float off leaving an arrow or something marking the area so we can see where on the map it is would be very helpful :)

  6. Have music control buttons on the UI or as a fly-out.

    Have music player interface buttons in the UI. I use my phone for entertainment and NAV guidance. Having to switch between is a pain.

  7. . Add a feature to log the miles traveled

    Add a feature to log the miles traveled using this great program.
    Add the ability to save it to a, comma separated values file on the sd card . This would be very helpful for sales people in tracking miles for tax purposes . Start point and endpoint would be very useful for tax purposes

  8. Heads up Display (HUD)

    make an heads up display icon so that the user can place it on their dash and the reflection will show up on the windshield.. for night time driving whee it is safer to stare closer to the road versus looking down...other apps use this idea but they dont have the GPS ability..it will set waze apart from all other GPS systems..and make it look extra cool!

  9. WIFI broadcasting in a P2P like network

    When having problems getting to the network. Waze can WFI brodcast you report and bounce it from client to client until it gets to the server and in the way you just notified all the cars near by that are the once they need the information.
    ie. Broadcast an accident you just reported to the cars going on the other direction and just passed near you.

  11. Limit voice direction repeats

    We need an option where we can limit the number of times the Voice directions tell us to "Keep right," etc. If you tell me the exit to take, I don't need you to tell me to "Now exit," and then "Keep the left." It becomes extremely annoying. If some people like it, that's fine, but we should have the option to limit.

  14. Access to view live traffic cameras where available publicly on the internet like around Pittsburgh, PA..

    In many cities there are traffic cameras posted on major routes. These are available over the internet and mobile phones so drivers can see live feeds. It would be great if Waze showed those along routes or on the maps so drivers can quickly view current conditions.

    We should also be able to add these to the maps through the editor and link to the published URLs of the cameras.

  15. "Open in Waze" - modify the Waze code so a user can click and hold on an address and be given the option to "Open in Waze" for navigation.

    "Open in Waze" (or "Navigate to in Waze") would merely allow the user to click and hold on an address in their phone and be given the option to open the address within Waze itself.

    A user currently can open an attachment in an email in numerous different downloadable programs. The same is true for address which currently default to the Maps app. It would be nice to see the same integration with Waze.

    Then, whenever a person receives a text, email, or other message with an address within it, the user would be able to click and hold on…

  16. Routing server timeouts - retry in the background

    Sometimes everyone of us experiences routing server timeouts with an Oops/OK prompt. Then one needs to reclick the destination while driving, which is disturbing. Perhaps the client could have an option to retry a couple of times in the background, and then notify if all retries failed?

  17. Less than 20% battery dialogue box options

    On Android less than 20% battery dialogue box says "Would you like to keep waze on?" With Yes and No buttons. However, when driving it's hard to read the question and often I end up turning off Waze cause I tapped "No". Since it's hard to read the question when driving, if dialogue buttons should said "keep on" or "turn off" instead of y/n, the decision is a lot faster.

  18. Show all villages in Israel "behind the green line"

    In Israel, I drive a lot in the area that has been marked a "behind the green line". All roads are marked well in this area, and so are Jewish settlements are indicated well on the map. I would like to have the names of the Arab villages that I pass along the road mentioned on the map. That helps for orientation purposes.

  19. My Rank and the scoreboard

    I'm bummed that you only show the top 50 wazers on the scoreboard. I'm ranked 299 (kinkstone) currently and I want to see the spread of points above and below me.

    Please add a pair of options at the top of the list (where you show all v. state and all times v. weekly) where I can choose between "top" or "around me". When showing the scoreboard around me, show the 50 wazers with me centered in the list.

    That way I can see the movement and score distribution of people like me.

  20. Option to shut off nearby event popups

    Add an option to the client in order to lock the event popup to only show the events on our route and NOT on all the nearby streets. We don't care about other streets problems, but we need the ones on our routes.
