  2. navigate from within the site

    Hi it would be great if we can use the website to navigate and not just through the app as occasionally I want to check the best route for one of the kids while I'm in the office.

  3. Bathroom Finder on Route

    Have an obvious button and/or a voice command to display (and when selected, route to) public bathrooms along your route. In settings, you should be able to select categories, like "rest area," "gas station or restaurant with restrooms," and distance from route (either in time or miles), etc. in order to establish a default search and display when the "show restrooms" switch is toggled.

  5. Ability to turn off "tool bars". ie. Carpool, My Waze, and Search bars

    We need a way to turn off these tool bars if not being used.
    They make this app mostly unusable, especially in landscape orientation, as they take up a large part of the screen.
    I don't carpool, i dont need the search bar on when I'm driving. Same for My Waze.
    Just a small button to access this would be fine.
    Please make a way to turn these off.

  6. Please make the search bar smaller

    Samsung Xcover Pro. Android 10.0 AT&T
    It seems like after the latest update the search bar takes up 1/3 of the screen in a horizontal orientation.
    I understand this minimizes when a destination is added and followed but the app in not always used for point A to B traveling.
    As an example, I use the app everyday for my 10 minute work commute. I don't need directions just police, safety, traffic, etc...
    I believe the search bar should minimize in all modes (once underway) because drivers shouldn't be typing while driving anyway.

  7. Get rid of the "always on screen" search bar

    Get rid of the "always on screen" search bar. It takes almost 1/3 of the screen when using the app on landscape mode without any active route.

  9. Add options to autohide the omnipresent search and mywaze bars

    The latest waze update relocated the transparent search bar to the bottom of the screen above a mywaze bar which on widescreen displays dramatically reduces the vertical height of the map screen; effectively a vast amount of wasted space dedicated to nothing of use during roaming.
    Add an option to auto hide both until a touch gesture brings them back for users who wish to dedicate their screens to an actual useful map not opaque, poorly designed controls utterly wasting vast quantities of screen real estate.

  13. Make the search bar hideable

    Please make the search bar hideable when using Waze but not navigating to a destination. The ability to use "Hey Google" makes this bar unnecessary and the bar drastically reduces the visible map, especially when using the device in landscape mode.

  14. Please remove (or have a setting to switch off) the search bar at the bottom of the screen

    Please remove (or have a setting to switch off) the search bar at the bottom of the screen when you don’t have a route planned but still want to use Waze. The box is massive and completely gets in the way. It’s only appeared a few updates back.

  15. Reporting Buttons

    Hi. I have been using Waze successfully for a while now, and find it really great until it comes to reporting. The most reported incidents, I'm guessing, are Roadworks, Accidents, Road Closures and Police.
    It would be great if you could put a direct button on the reporting menu for all of the above, as It's hard to get to report roadworks as there are a couple of menus to go through.

    By holding or swiping the Reports button you’re able to bring up the 3 most used report types for faster reports. You’re also able to use voice reporting using Google Assistant.

  16. Flood warnings & alerts to be added to match local gover warning

    Recently hit a flooded road which wasn’t marked in any way in Waze, UK government issues local flooding alerts with affected areas clearly marked & these areas should be reflected accordingly in Waze App

  17. Show highway lanes like Sygic

    Sygic shows the different highway lanes on a popup to know in which lane to be at the time of exiting, that'd be a great addition

  18. I would really like to see Waze available in CarPlay Split Screen

    Now that this functionality has been made available it would be really good to be able to use Waze in Split Screen so that I can see Music and Waze rather than Music and Apple Maps and therefore have to revert back to Full Screen for Waze.

  19. Remove/Change New "Permanent" Bottom Address Bar

    Please make the new bottom search bar on navigation screen disappear once you start a trip. Or take it away all together.
    It’s blocking too much of the screen.
    Sometimes people just want the map without inputting a destination.
    Thanks.
