  1. Option to use Bluetooth HSP or A2DP

    Waze uses bluetooth A2DP for navifation instructions. But a lot of car sets only uses bluetooth HSP. There are apps that convert A2DP to HSP but these apps always mute the car radio. So it would be great, if Waze can send navidation instructions via HSP to a bluetooth car set. So it will mute the radio, give the navigation instruction and then unmute the radio. I think that would be a big feature, cause google maps can't do this right now.

  3. Waze RoadTrip- A New Option for Wazers

    You will likely want to hear an idea that will expand your audience and retain your current customer base.

    Recently, I embarked on an excursion from Orlando, FL to Charleston, SC. It’s a fairly short road trip, but within those 6 hours, I wondered to myself how great it would be to see more than just the highway in front of me and the trees that lined the road. I quickly grew exhausted from seeing the same paved road, white lines, and billboard signs over and over again.

    I turned to my boyfriend with two hours left on our trip…

  4. CyclistsWaze - waze for Cyclists

    Dear Waze,

    The Holidays are just over here in Israel, and like most people i spent alot of this time driving

    around.

    On the road i noticed, that there are a lot of cyclists and cycling groups on the road and on the

    side of the road.

    Seeing them made me realize that there is no way to warn the other drivers from the cyclists

    group on Waze, even though EVERYONE uses Waze to get around.

    So, here's a thought, why not create a "CyclistsWaze"?

    My idea is very simple. Create a form of "mini" Waze that designated only for…

  5. Suppress public parking lots unless the destination does not have the "Customer Parking" box checked

    The app far too often shows parking lots illogically, resulting in clutter and confusion. There is no need to show a public parking lot for a destination that has its own lot.

  7. Add "avoid border crossings" setting, just like avoid toll roads or ferries.

    Navigating from New York to Detroit, there's a route that crosses through Canada. I didn't bring my passport and wish to avoid this, but if I manually force another route, I might miss out on traffic-responsive optimizations. It should be possible to avoid border crossings just like any other route preference.

  8. Add option to Avoid Tunnels

    For various reasons drivers may wish to avoid tunnels when navigating. This should be an option along side with Avoid Highways and Avoid Toll Roads.

  9. EV mode

    I am driving an electric vehicle and have a few ideas:
    1. route for least hills
    2. fleet learn from other EVs to improve range
    3. Tesla already uses Google Maps -- integrate with their EV (API?) to get range and utilization (efficiency) data to improve commutes and feedback on battery state
    4. Allow users to manually set up their EV in the app and prompt for "did you get a full charge overnight" or "please update actual battery % or rated range estimate, currently 288 miles, actual?"
    5. Learn "destination charging" and "destination parking" for manual EV setup behavior…

  12. Map scale indicator

    Have you ever wondered how many miles long that traffic jam is up ahead? I sure have, but Waze gives no indication of distances on a map. How about one of the little bars that indicates the scale of the current map view - you know 1 inch equals a mile, etc.

  15. Multiple selections on prefered fuel/gas/petrol stations

    It is now possible to select all or just one as preferred fuel/gas/petrol station.
    I would suggest a selection list where you can select multiple preferred gas/petrol stations in your settings/fuels list depending on your own choice or preference

  17. Display current location GPS Coordinates and share them with friends

    when it comes to navigation gps coordinates play an important role as it pin points the location you want other's to know if all else fails, like street names and landmark. Everything will change but not gps coordinates

  18. Irish dialect voice

    Defects in machines speech can often be obscured by the machine speaking in a different dialect you speak. Irish are romanticized by Americans and this will be very popular Stateside.
