  1. Waze for WP8

    It would be great for Waze to release a version for WP8. I love using Waze on iOS and it is one of the limited apps that I would miss on WP8. Thanks!

  2. public transport services

    Please consider the public transport services as a transit option to waze users community (rail services as a metropolitan “backbone” mobility solution for congestion).

  3. Option to keep "battery saver" always on

    Waze has this new "battery saver" feature that dims the screen when there is a long way until the next turn/action. As I understand, currently this feature only kicks in when the battery level is low (<25%). Or you can manually turn it on for a current trip, but it revert to the default behaviour next time you start Waze.

    I suggest to add an option to keep it ALWAYS on. Because I would like to use it all the time... Even if the battery level is not low, I'd like to save it for the rest of the day.…

  4. Interface for linking Waze with MyLink (Chevrolet and Opel multimedia system)

    I like and use Waze every day when I go to work, but watching and tapping the smartphone touchscreen is unconfortable and dangerous.
    Why don't you write an interface for linking Waze with MyLink (Chevrolet and Opel multimedia system) in order to use it through the car touchscreen? General Motors has already released APIs for the purpose, and the only one compatible navigation app is rather expensive and closed source...

    Thank you for your suggestion! We are currently not planning on adding MyLink support, since Waze works with both CarPlay and AndroidAuto, which should be available in most car models. Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s blog and social pages on Facebook and Instagram.

  5. Open up Waze Carpool for Trinidad and Tobago to reduce Traffic

    Big benefits to bring Carpool to Trinidad and Tobago to:-
    -- reduce the number of cars on the road during rush hour traffic (5am-9am) & (3pm-7pm). It is grid-lock at these times and can take up to 3 hours to get into and out of the capital (Port of Spain)
    -- car ownership is prohibitively expensive
    -- public transportation is risky
    -- public transportation is unreliable
    -- be environmentally conscious to the earth by being more economical moving people

    Help our little paradise to become better and more responsible. Help to bring Waze Carpool to Trinidad and Tobago

  7. Be able to "drop a pin" at current location and add to favorites

    It'd be good to be able to drop a pin at current location and give it a name and add it to favorites. The current method of having to do addresses or POI searches is not always workable--especially on small form-factor devices.

  10. 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.

  12. Have an Apple watch app.

    I'm deaf myself. I love the Apple maps notifying me when it's time to turn since I can't hear the gps. But I love Waze because of its features. But I would love it more if it had the turn by turn notifications on my watch. It would be so much more helpful.

  14. Support Pebble watch (getpebble.com)

    The Pebble is a smart watch with an SDK for Android / iOS. Being able to integrate with it would allow users to quickly report traffic instances without using the phone interface. Just click a button on the watch and it reports heavy traffic por example.

  16. Show favorites on map

    In other gps devices, your favorites show up on the map. For example if you have a friends house saved and you drive by you'll be able to see it on the map. So I think it would be nice to have your favorites show on the map all the time or at least have an option to turn on a feature like this.

  17. GPS coordinates

    It would be great to have a GPS dashboard panel, displaying in the same screen:
    - Longitude, Latitude & Elevation
    - Velocity
    - GPS status (fixed, not fixed, ...)
    - Signal's strength
    - Compass

  19. Implement burn-in protection for AMOLED-Displays

    Many users of mobiles with AMOLED-Displays report severe burn-in when using Waze on an regular basis.

    Please implement an option to activate a real good working burn-in protection.

    • Switching off (no dimming, the pixels must really be off!) the whole map if nothing interesting must be shown (no speed camera, no car on shoulder, no turn in 1 km or less).

    and

    • Rasterize next-turn bar, speedometer, report button, ETA-bar AND shift them a few pixels once per minute. (BTW: this is normal behavior on smartwatches used with display always-on for years)

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    The Report button was designed to be noticed while blending in and it’s important to keep it as is.
    However, we will revisit this idea when working on Dark mode, in the future. Furthermore, since this is a physical issue that OLED phones suffer from in different apps, we recommend to use Battery Saver mode to allow your display some rest from bright colors that might lead to this dysfunction.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram.

  20. Keep the Terminator voice!

    I just got a notice from Waze that the Terminator voice is going away. PLEASE keep this voice as an option on Waze!
