  1. Other Side Reporting

    You used to have "Other Side of Road" for reporting. It was *AWESOME* and I used to report vehicles on the other side on the shoulder, and appreciated getting the notification about that. It's only available with the Police now; please bring that back. Why did you take it away?

  2. Add option to prefer beautiful way (scenery) over short/fast way

    When on a trip we sometimes prefer a beautiful way (view, atmosphere, interesting villages etc.) over the short/fast one. (I noticed that on our last trip abroad).

  5. The ability to plan a trip with multiple stops

    The ability to enter a starting location, an ending location, points in between and have waze provide the route and order.

  6. Make waze tolerant of intermittent network connectivity

    Waze relies on a network connection when in use. Many areas I drive in have poor or intermittent network connectivity. Please make the Waze client more tolerant of poor network connections by caching more data of the surrounding map and allow journey data (including new roads) to be cached on the client and uploaded at a later time. Not all areas can rely on good 3G/UMTS network connectivity

  7. Allow the ability to specify the location of a report.

    When reporting an issue, crash, traffic jam, fire, Police activity, the system only gives you the option to report on the road you are on. So for example, if you are at an interchange where you can see the activity on a highway or interstate, but you are not on that road, you can't actually report it properly. Maybe it can be set up that you make a report, and like in google maps, you have a pin dropped on the map that you can move to the correct location, if where you are is not the location of the…

  8. Samsung Gear S2 integration

    I'd like Waze to integrate with the Samsung Gear S2, which is on the Tizen OS. Most particularly, I'd like vibrate reminders of upcoming turns. Also, navigation initiation and address lookup would be useful.

    I'm using the device with a Nexus 6 on Marshmallow.

  9. Optimized functionalities for motorbikes

    It's too bad Waze doesn't offer any of these functionalities for riders/bikers:
    - deactivate traffic jams in the time calculation (or consider we are at around 50 km/h on these parts of the path)
    - proposing winding/twisting roads with different levels, just like Tomtom and Garmin already do with their devices
    - allowing to create more than one step point to get the perfect itinerary
    - allowing the load of external files (such as .gpx for example) to create roadbooks on our computer (with Google Maps or else) and then send it to our smartphone.

    In brief, just a few…

  11. Waze for Trucks

    Trucks are almost 5% of all traffic in the US (1). But there isn't a great navigation app yet. Waze should create an option / app for truckers.
    Editors can give in the following restrictions:
    - Closed for trucks / RV's;
    - Closed for vehicles longer than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles wider than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles higher than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles with an axle load more than X tons;
    - Closed for vehicles heavier than X tons;
    - Closed for trucks with hazardous substances;
    - Closed…

  16. send XMPP message when nearing destination (Jabber)

    some people are offended by outdated technology that requires one to pay for unwanted messages (sms).

    It is beyond inane to use sms on a smartphone when XMPP is far more featured, FREE, secure.

    Waze could further advertise the service with its own XMPP server. This would facilitate such messages, enhance social features, and expand the wondedful world of federation. Prosody and Tigase are great server options.

  20. Don't want to have to allow access to my contacts to share a drive

    In the new version, I can't enter an address or number anymore...and I'd really prefer not to sign over my entire contact list to waze. Can you reinstitute the message/email options in "share my drive"?
