  2. Waze distress signal

    As a Wazer, wouldn't be great to be able to send out a distress signal. Tyre change, out of gas, need engine help, etc. Perhaps also car make specific help, in that case a personal setting including car make could be needed.

    If another user helps you out he or she would gain some 100 p. To avoid misuse the extra points only should apply when you help a non friend Wazer.

    Or turn the other way around and let users state what type of help he or she could provide. No need to get flagged for help if you…

  4. Mood-related noises

    Idea: what if you could make a sound based on your mood? Nearby drivers could hear it if they opt to...happy people could "woot" for example.

  5. On map edit, turn speed camera image 180 degrees

    The current solution where we put the red dot in the direction BEHIND the camera to set camera direction, the image indicating the direction of the lens is backwards. Perhaps turn the image 180 degrees? It adds a lot of confusion...

  6. Car care features implemented in to the Waze

    Waze could have same kind of an fuctionality as there are in many car care apps in the market.
    -Counting mileages and fuel consumption.
    -You could set up odometer reading when u should change oil etc etc and Waze could remind you of that.
    -When navigating to a far away destination Waze could warn u if gas should run out before you reach there and suggest gas station en route.

    For example on iPhone there is app called Gas Cubby that can count mileages and costs for running your car but you have to put in mileage and gas price…

  7. Make https://world.waze.com/livemap/ to show all Wazers that are online.

  9. Google as search engine

    Please set google as the default search engine as they have much greater database. That way, we can utilize Waze as our primary map on our iPhones (thanks to Apple map). Thanks :)

  11. Monitize via radio

    Waze should look to monetize by partnering with radio stations for up to date traffic reports, get someone to sponsor the report (like they do with today’s helicopter based reports) and split the fee. Would be more profitable for both and save on the carbon footprint of flying multiple helicopters over every city.

  12. It would be great to put toll booths and customs check points on the maps. I have to put 'heavy traffic' every time I go through one. Thanks

  13. The dependence of the color bands of the route from traffic jams

    When driving on the lane route, the route covers the color strip road on which it runs. It is not clear, red or yellow road. Propose to change the hue (color) of the band route, depending on the color of the road on which it runs.

  14. Integrate Waze for iOS into Google voice search on the Google app

    Would it be possible to use Google to search the Waze map database and open a URL to navigate to the destination? Using the same idea as when you click a facebook url, it opens the app and navigates to the relavent page or event etc?

  15. Visualize BEST TIME TO LEAVE for a given destination (red to green). Save time if you know the peaks.

    Problem
    You know where to go, but want to know what would be the best time to leave to avoid peak traffic.
    At the moment you a ETA, which is nice to know but doesn't help you to plan.

    Idea
    You plan a route, get an ETA and a option to choose the best time for leaving. Could be a color coded (green to red) 24h hour-by-hour "forecast" of expected travel time (graph or simple list). This could include current traffic situation for the next few hours, averages for the rest. Also the next 2 hours could be split into…

  16. Use BIG red and green arrows to correct turn restrictions right away when you report a map issue.

    Problem now:
    You report incorrect turn restrictions in your app, someone will find it in the web editor and blind changes them mostly based on fuzzy or even no notes.

    Idea
    You mark a turn restriction map issue in your app. A simplified junction pops up with BIG red and green turn restrictions for your current view/street. You can toggle the arrows by tapping them allowing or disallowing turns.
    Press save and forget. The changes will be kept locally in the client in order to avoid being routed the wrong repeatedly until the next map update.

  17. Make Wazer clients help with map recalculation. Save on server cost by facilitating the power of each client.

    Basic idea: Distribute server tasks like map recalculation to Wazer clients.

    Benefit for Wazers
    - shorter map update cycles
    - the more wazers we are, the faster we get updates
    - "better service"
    - mooooore points ;-)

    Benefit for Waze
    - save on server costs
    - CPU power will increase over time (more Wazers; continuously improving client hardware)

    Important
    Calculation should only commence if
    - Wazer agrees to take part
    - Waze client is on power
    - Client battery is filled to a minimum level (e.g. 80%) - charge your phone first, then help other Wazers :-)
    - Data: Use…

  20. 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.
