  1. Add a traffic bar to map

    Have a "Traffic Bar" that appear in the routes screen overlayed on the main map.
    add a car to the bar that moves along with your journeys completion.
    So when you are 85 percent home, the car has moved 85 percent up the bar.

    Also when the Bar-Car (Maybe we should think of a better name) gets near an event an audible alert gets triggered, like when you near a Cop it could say “Oh cock, its the Rozzers!” Or just “Police reported ahead”) Or when you are near a obstacle on road you could be warned – e.g. “Johnny…

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze already displays a speedometer, including both your driving speed and the speed limit for the road you’re currently on.

  3. Support CarPlay Integration

    Now that CarPlay is live on Pioneer head units, when will Waze support CarPlay integration? I really don't want to switch to Apple Maps, but the CarPlay system can't be beat, even by Waze.

    Great news. Setting to avoid toll roads is already available globally. It is also possible to mark dangerous zones on map editor level, so the app could warn you if your route goes through one of dangerous zones.

  8. Speeding alert for drivers

    Waze should make a sound to alert the driver when they are speeding.

    Waze already shows you how fast you are currently driving, and it knows everything about the road you are on, so it should be simple to compare your speed to the listed speed of the road.

    Waze has always been about saving time and money for Wazers, and about creating features to attract and keep people on their service. This allows Waze to on-sell quality map data to other businesses, such as Apple. Many other SatNav clients have speeding alerts to save the driver from getting a…

  9. Make Waze continue running in background untill it is turned off

    I use my phone for more than just Waze when I'm driving. Waze does not consistently run in the background when I switch to control another app (even when I'm driving on the highway at 65 mph). I'd really like to see an option in settings to keep Waze active until I manually exit. Alternatively, how about an option that keeps Waze active as long as my phone is in the car dock?

  10. iOS version - Please add the display of the maximum speed limit.

    The user should always see the maximum allowed speed, so he won't exceed it.

  11. show street name currently on

    It would be great to show the name of the street you're currently on, as well as that of the next turn. Also, show the name of the street you're on when not in navigation mode.

  12. Apple CarPlay

    With the release of iOS10, Apple's stock apps can be removed from the CarPlay screen, including Maps. Now, there's room for Waze to reside on all of our CarPlay home screens.

    Dear Waze, please bring your awesome nav to CarPlay. Reports have said that you're working on it, so my request is redundant. But @waze itself suggested I post here, so you know you want this too.

    Let's send Waze some encouragement and vote for Waze on CarPlay! Thank you.

  14. Home and Work favorite should have "use current location" to add, not just search for address

    This favorite is great. But it should have a "Use current Location" button to add your Work and Home. Searching for an address it will not show exactly where the house is, in this case in Ecuador, if it's a new home or not on the database.

  15. route overview

    Please add an option to see either a birds-eye overview or a turn-by-turn list (or both?) of the route Waze is taking me on.

    Sometimes I know I want to avoid a particular road. So when Waze plots a route for me at the start, I can review the proposed alternate routes and choose one. But if I need to deviate from that route to make a side errand maybe, Waze will recalculate my route on the fly, going back to its #1 preferred route. If I'm not paying close attention, this sends me back over to the road I…

  16. Create lane assistance like Tom Tom.

    I have iPhone 5 with iOS 6 and as its a bigger screen and faster chip I think waze should create lane assist like Tom toms. This would be big but could be completed by wazers on editor for points, it would soon catch up. Lane assist can tell you which lane to use for a direction.

  17. Create a Report category for "Faulty Traffic Lights"

    Traffic lights are a major cause of traffic delays when out. Currently there is no way to report this specific problem.

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze offers HOV routing for taxis. To change your vehicle type go to Settings > Vehicle type. There are currently no plans to add more HOV options.
