  1. Bicycle navigation and bike routes for waze!!! Please!!

    Can you please add bicycle routes to the app and ways to avoid roads that go over a certain speed limit? The option to set your vehicle as a bicycle and find routes like that avoid high speed roads and roads that dont allow bikes conbined with all of the other great functions of the app will be fantastic...

    But since you don't have the feature so many bicyclists won't get to navigate with your app and get the same benefits that car drivers have... I really need a navigator for bikers that shows the speed limits of the roads…

  2. Alternate Route

    Very frustrating when Waze updates the route with a bunch of turns,including a few difficult left turns, and it results in a time savings of a minute or two. Sometimes it doesnt save any time at all. I suggest an option were you can choose a time savings minimum before waze will take you off your current route. For example I would prefer to stay on my current, more direct route, unless a time savings of 5 min is available then please change my route.
    Thanks

  5. William Daniels voice as KITT from Knight Rider

    Since Arnold Schwarzenegger voice was introduced as the Terminator, why not use KITT's voice as well? I think it would be a great idea, since he was one of the first talking cars! I'm pretty sure a lot of people would like to have KITT by his side while they're in the road.

  7. Calculate the best route based on both shorter time and distance. Not just one of them.

    I prefer the fastest way, but only when it is reasonable.
    I can never trust the option automatically suggested for me and I always find myself checking the routes. In many cases I switch to the second option.
    For example:
    Option 1: 49 minutes, 58 Km
    Option 2: 50 minutes, 47 Km
    I would rather spend 2% more time than spend 21% more fuel...

    Most people would prefer spending another minute in this case. Why do we always have to bother going to the routes to find out.

    The user can select his preference for either shortest or fastest way…

  8. Jai Haze for New Waze Voice

    Jai Haze is a well known YouTube Vape Reviewer with a comedic voice that’s a cross between Vince Vaughn and Jersey Shore, let’s get Jais Voice on Waze, Jammies and all, to bring his comedic wittiness to our morning commutes! Can you just play him in the backround of Waze? Yes you can obviously but wouldn’t it be more of a fun matrix like commute with him reviewing the new Vape Device in the backround and him also telling you to turn your Jammy left?

  12. It would be great if School Zones were added.

    I gave votes to the others. I do understand there are time management issues. This would be a huge plus.

  13. Please put in place a repeat command/direction.

    Directions/commands are sometimes hard to hear or missed. A repeat function is essential and absolutely necessary!

  14. Matt Berry Voice Navigation

    Matt Berry Voice Navigation

    Esteemed actor, musician, performer, and artist, Matt Berry, would make a stupendous addition to the Waze program and community. With a confident, sultry, and seductive presence, Matt Berry would guide thousands of drivers to their destinations in the comfort of his soothing, tenor voice.

    We, the people, recognize that Matt Berry is busy with his numerous endeavors and that Waze has countless features they strive to add to an already vigorous navigation system. It is with this in mind that we humbly suggest a few lines pulled from his revered catalog of work along with new…

  15. Mr. T's Voice

    Mr. T's voice would be truly amazing and esp popular. My bet is you would get addl users just for going there.

    "Turn Now, Sucka!" "Rerouting, I pitty you fool"

    and an amazing easter egg for those going to the airport "I ain't gettin' on no plane!"

  18. Add an "Avoid traffic" routing option

    I don't mind adding a few minutes to my trip if it means I can keep moving and not get stuck in traffic. Waze already has the data to make this type of routing possible.

  19. Routing server timeout on long drives

    Since the app seems to consistently time out looking for long drives, I would recommend allowing more back end resources be used for drives over a certain mileage or time. This might require an upgrade based on the high number of users.

    Instead of having just one option, I would like to be able to choose between options since there are riskier routes for adding traffic.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one with this issue since I can have perfect service on an iPhone 6S and consistently have your servers time out.
