  2. 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?

  3. Set permanent preferred routes for common commute such as: home to work and work to home

    Set permanent preferred routes for common commute such as: home to work and work to home. Most people already have a set route preferred from home to work and back. Also set ways to drive to the everyday shopping stores. For those common commutes, it would be useful if Waze would give you your preferred route for the routes you have established in the favorites menu to location, rather than one based on set rules. It would be even more interesting if waze can learn your preferred routes when you commute to locations set in the Favorites list.

  4. 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…

  5. Speed Limit Change Alert

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add a voice alert of speed limit changes. I am on the highway all the time and the speed limit constantly changes. It would be helpful if the voice would say “Speed limit has increased” or “Speed limit has decreased”. I got a ticket because I thought I was still in a 75mph speed zone and I didn’t realize it changed to 55mph. Yes the image of speed limit changes accordingly but a nice voice alert would be extremely BENEFICIAL!! Thank you!!!

  6. Implement U-turn navigation instruction and ability to allow u-turns at intersection.

    In exUSSR countries it is a common practice to use u-turn. Traffic lights at major intersections may have special arrow to allow only left turns and u-turns. But currently Waze cannot use this feature to build optimal route.

  9. Settings for types of alerts to allow

    There are many types of alerts the Waze client can display as a layer on the map and/or pop up on your screen, sometimes both visual and audible. We would like to see an new Settings area added for the types of alerts we want to see and/or ignore and never have a notification appear or be heard.

    The notifications should include at least, but not necessarily limited to:
    Speed cams
    Red light cams
    Police (speed trap)
    Road Hazards
    Road segment speed condition
    Traffic Jams
    Chit Chat
    Accident

    Great news! For each type of report/alert you’re able to specify whether you’d like it do be displayed on the route. Accessed via Settings – Alerts&Reports – Reports. What’s more, you can choose area (e.g. 5 km around you) for which reports will be displayed on the map.

  10. Rail Road Crossing Ahead Notification

    Give notification when approaching Rail Roads Crossings. This notification could be turned on or off by the user if needed.

  11. Client Suggestion: Voice Recognition

    I was driving from Las Vegas, NV to Fullerton, CA this past weekend. During the trip, I had a few hours to think of what client upgrades could be implemented into WAZE. Specifically, as the title of this thread suggests, I thought about Voice Recognition. This came about as I sent a report, but was unable to type a comment, thanks to texting and driving dangers.

    Here is what I was thinking:
    Voice Recognition would always be active while WAZE is active. Instead of pushing a button to activate Waze, what if a keyword was programmed to start the functionality.…

  13. North = Up!

    PLEASE, for the Love of God, give us a preference that will keep North pointing UP on the device! i practically can't use Waze (tho i REALLY want to) because it keep spinning around on me - drives me crazy - i grew up with paper maps & north was always "up" - having it spin to the direction i'm driving is driving me bonkers! :-)
    aside from that, the app rocks!

  14. Add > Hazard > On road > Vehicle Stopped/Broken down

    There are numerous times when one comes across a broken down or stalled vehicle in the road, and you end up reporting it as "Other" or even report it as "On Shoulder" which is inaccurate.

  15. iOS 8 location services

    iOS 8 - please add the feature in location services to only use location when using the app, not always. Google Maps provides 3 location service options to users: always, never, when using app. Pleased add the option "when using app". Waze doesn't need to always track my location in the background and turning it on when I use the app is a pain.

  16. audio alerts for everything

    It would be nice to have audio alerts for all activity in waze. If there is a traffic jam ahead alert me vocally, same for car on shoulder etc.

    I say this because I ride a motorcycle and am not able to view my screen (also it would take my attention from the bike). I would like to be audibly alerted of everything such as speed cams, cops, blah blah :)

  17. הוספת אפשרות דיווח על בעל חיים משוטט בצידי הכביש

    בתאריך ה 16.1.17 יצאו משפחת אלמקייס מביתם במצפה רמון בשעות הערב במטרה להגיע לאירוע משפחתי בצפון. הם לא חשבו שהנסיעה תיגמר כל כך מהר בטרגדיה נוראה שכזו. כעשר דקות לאחר שיצאו מביתם אירעה תאונה קטלנית בה מעורב רכב המשפחה וגמל ששוטט על כביש 40. בתאונה נהרג ליאל, בן המשפחה, כבן 13 ובני משפחתו נפצעו ונפגעו באורח קשה. תאונות בהן מעורבים בעלי חיים הם דבר נפוץ בכבישים ויכולות להימנע בקלות.
    אם תהיה באפשרותנו, הנהגים ומשתמשי הדרך, לדווח למערכת הניווט ולמשתמשי האפליקציה על גמל או בעל חיים אחר שמשוטט בצידי הכביש, תאונות רבות ימנעו וחיי אדם יקרים מפז יינצלו.

    Animals on the road can be reported in two ways:
    1. Reports – Hazard – Shoulder – Animals (for a roaming animal)
    2. Reports – Hazard – On road – Roadkill (for a dead animal hit by a car)

  18. Voice command reports

    Sending reports using short voice commands. For example: "waze danger car side of the road"

  19. Integrate Amazon Music app

    Spotify is nicely integrated into the waze phone app. It would be nice to also add Amazon Music app for those that don't use Spotify.

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may already know, Waze is now integrated with several audio apps including Spotify, Deezer, TuneIn, iHeart Radio, Pandora and more. Just go to Settings > Audio Player and pick your favorite app.

  20. Siri integration

    Not sure if it's possible, but if there is an API to integrate with Siri to make navigation via voice commands that much easier.
