  2. Addind a "Facing the opposite direction" button

    When I get to the car, many times Waze suggest a route in the oposite direction of how the car is parked. This causes a major time loss as the app needs time to realize I'm headind the opposite way, recalculate and offer a new route. Therefore a banner "facing the opposite lane?" is necessary and would upgrade the app signifully.
    Sorry for my English.

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    Setting the Car’s direction when starting the app and navigation is a known matter which will be addressed in the future.
    There are many complexities in location tracking which cause this issue and hold us from providing a solution.
    It’s currently on the back burner, but definitely a part of the backlog.

  3. please bring the arnie voice back

    Please bring arnie back as all the voices are really annoying and put me off driving. I would be happy to pay a subscription fee for this service.

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    As you probably know, some of the voices we feature are promotional, meaning they are only available for a limited time.
    We offer special voices for holidays, events, and just for fun.
    You can use these for the length of the promotion. When the promotion ends, your voice will reset to the default and the voice will no longer appear in the Sound menu.

    We hope that you enjoyed the voice while it was available and can’t wait to share more exciting voices to come!

    Want to try another voice?

    Tap Menu and tap the Settings wheel.
    Tap Voice & sound.
    Tap Voice Language and select the voice you’d like to use.

  4. ALWAYS starts me going the wrong way...

    I have never once started Waze and had it tell me that I'm going in the direction my car is facing. There is no way to turn my car around when this happens (on the map) and sometimes because I can't do that, it makes it dangerous because I'm messing around with trying to figure out where to go. THIS is the single most annoying thing about Waze.

  5. Waze for Emergency vehicles.

    Not for the common Waze market. But might be useful for Public safety and emergency situations. Give the "ambulance"(example) Waze and it can help alert all other vehicles of the incoming emergency vehicle and its route. Also it can help navigate the Emergency vehicle to easier routes.

  6. Hazard Locations

    Hazards are currently listed as "on my side" or "the other side". Many hazards are in the median - I'd like to see that as an option.

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    This suggestion will not be implemented for the time being. Adding more and more options to reporting, especially for less popular types of reports such as other side which will also require another window/card, is not something we are aiming for at the moment. Please be aware that other side reporting is already available by voice using the Google Assistant! We believe investing in voice can create essentially a better and more scalable experience and we hope to bring it to more languages soon.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram.

  7. Add the ability to create 'Here' as a favourite

    Not all destinations have a clear address or you want to be able to use a specific entrance. It would be great if when adding a favourite Waze would let you select the place you are right now. Most GPS allow this feature.

  8. Build a desktop route planning site where users can plan out a long road trip with different points along the way.

    Users could then download the route to Waze and use the standard app to follow the preferred route.

  11. Bring back Tom

    Please bring back the "Tom" voice. Jane mispronounces streets, and at times she is very difficult to understand. The Tom voice was articulate. Not sure why you discontinued this voice. A contract expired? Hey, pay him whatever he wants and get him back please.

    Thank you for your suggestion! We are currently not planning on adding support for Watches or other wearable devices.

  13. How about making voice navigation work in WP8 again.....

    worked great til two weeks ago, No mention of discontinuing support for WP. If you are - fine -be a man and post it to the forum so we know. If not - how about giving instructions to fix? (reinstalling didn't work).

  15. Rachel navigation voice back

    The Developers have change the standard Brazilian navigation voice from Rachel to Alessandra.
    The new voice it's to low. The voice misses some intonation.
    This causes many navigation/driving mistakes to the user, including me and my friends that I talk about it.
    Please, we need the Rachel voice back.

  20. Keep Waze on top of Lock Screen

    This is an option to keep waze on top of the lock screen because I shut the screen off during my commute to save battery and when I press the button to turn it on, it still requires me to unlock my phone before getting back to the Waze navigation screen
