  1. Interval Tone for Speeding

    Pls provide a setting for interval tone warnings for a selected speed threshold - ex. if/when I go >/= 70mph give a tone every 5/10/15/30 seconds. Doesn't have to be anything fancy - a simple beep or boop will do.

  2. Logging Options on Waze (distance, driving time, gas costs)

    It would be great that Waze could log some data about your trip.
    So you could include a kind of dashboard that could display your speed, average speed, distance driven, a kind of trip distance resetable by user, as well a fuel logging calculator.
    The fuel logging calculator should enable you to register the price spent and the ammount of fuel you've filled. This would be great for drivers to make some stats in order to reduce costs.

  4. Possibly Clear Up what is meant by the "Traffic Jam" reports

    Instead of having "Moderate", "Heavy" and "Standstill", why not clarify these categories a little more. They could possibly be instead "Congestion", "Slow Down" and "Standstill". I think these adequately reflect the different degrees of traffic jams that occur. Congestion is still dangerous but might not reflect a great decrease in speed. When drivers will have to decrease their speed that is useful to know, and of course "Standstills" are self explanatory.
    An alternative option could be to elaborate on the provided categories more instead of changing them. They just seem a little ambiguous.

  5. Fading Report Icons

    After a report is added to the map, the icons should slowly begin to become transparent. This way the age of upcoming reported incidents can be determined at a glance. If a fading report icon is reconfirmed by another Wazer, it should regain 100% of its opacity and the fading cycle should begin again.

  6. iPhone4G - landscape mode not correct at time zero

    more of a bug really.
    If Waze is running before I rotate the phone then the switch to landscape mode works. If I launch Waze after rotating the phone (like I do when I snap the phone into my car mount before starting Waze) then the display is stuck sideways.

  7. Eco mode

    How about an Eco mode that would give you a warning beep if you accelerate or decelerate too fast or drive over the posted speed limit? Of course, the driving speed (for traffic) would need adjusted (because if you're driving 10 under the speed limit for MPG reasons that doesn't mean that there's traffic issues).

  8. REVERSIBLE ROADS

    There are some countries (At least in Santiago, Chile and Mexico City where I live) that due to a high traffic times, some of the main streets gets REVERSIBLE, meaning that from certain times of the day the regular way of the street is REVERSED so the traffic can be more fluid. I would like to propose the facility of making REVERSIBLE roads

  9. Add shields to on and off ramps

    When a road type ramp has a route number on it, a shield should be generated for the navigation instruction. For example, a on-ramp named "to US-27" should produce "to <US-27 shield>". Similarly: "Exit 29: US-19 / US-23 / SR-43" should produce "Exit 29: <US-19 shield> <US-23 shield> <SR-43 shield>.

  10. Indicator on alert for direction

    When an alert is displayed on the map, it is generally impossible to tell whether the alert applies to the current direction of travel or the opposite.

  11. Add more levels too Avoid Highway option

    With the Avoid Highway option off, Waze is way too aggressive in routing to freeways. The the Avoid Highway on, all types of highways are avoided from minor to freeway. There should be additional options to Avoid Freeways, Avoid Major Highways and Freeways.

    Yes, Waze is supposed to figure out the best route based on information without this level of direction, but in fact it does not, at least in some areas. These options would allow some user input based on experience in directing the routing.

    This would be especially useful for trips that include multiple type of environments such…

  12. "Stop running in the background" switch on iOS

    Hi. I found that Waze continues to run and use GPS and 3G signal while backgrounded on the iPhone. This is catastrophic in our country for two reasons: 1. It keeps the phone very hot. 2. it uses data at about 0.15 USD/MB, thereby ticking down your data and using up your money. You have to explicitly turn it off or explicitly quit the app. There should be a switch that says, and is by default, set to "Do not run or use data or GPS in the background". My experience: I used Waze to get to a destination. I…

  13. Auto-Brightness Bug

    I've uncovered a bug in the iOS version. Somehow, Waze is disabling the auto-brightness feature on my iPhone. I've restored my phone twice now due to this issue, and the last time I did so I installed no other apps other than Waze to see if it would happen again....it did.

    The phone shows that auto brightness is turned on, but it does not function - i.e. it simply stays at whatever brightness it is set to regardless of the ambient light. Couldn't find a place to post the bug on your site, so thought I'd put it here!

    Thanks!!!

  16. Vehicle "attaches" to road

    I have noticed that the vehicle icon "attaches" to the road on the map. There are a couple of issues with this. When I am in an unmapped area, such as in a parking lot, the vehicle tends to jump back and forth between its actual location and the nearest road. Also, the exit I take on my morning commute has not updated yet, so WAZE tells me to take the exit prior to it. Even though I do not take that exit the vehicle icon does and shows me driving on the service road rather than on the interstate.…

  18. There should be 2 categories of choosing Zoom settings, when navigating and when just driving

    When I'm navigating to a specific place, it makes the most sense to zoom based on the distance to the next turn because it makes a visual reminder for the turn coming up and shows the most detail. If I just have waze open, however, it doesn't know when I'm turning, so it should zoom based on speed. I realize not everyone may want this, however, so make 2 categories of zoom options: choose how you want it to zoom when navigating and how how you want it to zoom when just driving.
