  1. 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.

  2. Set max travel-speed

    When towing my caravan, I do not travel on the highway at the speed-limit of 120km/h but rather in the vicinity of 100km/h. This means the ETA is out. It would be a nice feature if I can set my max speed limit for a trip, with my towing combination, and the ETA is calculated based on that.

    Great news! This feature is already available in Waze. It’s called Personalized ETA.

    Personalized ETA setting is turned on in Settings – Navigation – Personalized ETA. Waze would analyze the drives you took in the past, calculate how long it took you to drive sections of the route, and compare this information with Waze’s estimates. Then, it uses this info to personalize your ETA whenever you search a route in Waze.

    Important: Waze won’t analyze drives that you delete from your drive history. Deleting drives may disable Waze from personalizing your ETA until you take more drives.

  3. Automatically switch off 'Record new road' feature

    As an area manager, it is a headache to keep deleting small segments of road alongside existing roads, caused by GPS inaccuracies where a user has left the 'record new road' feature switched on. I think it would be a good idea to have the client automatically switch off the feature if the user has been travelling on an existing road for a set period of time, for example, 2 minutes.

  5. 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 :)

  6. 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)

    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.

  8. 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.

  11. upload route (gpx) - bicycle mode

    In the Netherlands and Belgium people really like to cycle. Therefore it would be great if people could upload there gpx routes they have created from other applications or websites. Then we would have the nicest routes instead of the fastest or shortest. The bicycle mode could help to distinguish special bikeroutes and carroutes, and will make sure waze is not showing a traffic slowdown.

  12. 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.

  14. Quick report buttons

    It would be a good idea to place some (2??) customizable quick report buttons on the main Map/interface; in such way we can report speed traps/ dangers/ police while we are driving with a single touch (or double to exclude unintended reports)!
    There are too many menu/options to make a report... the only way to put them live is to stop the car and going trough a jungle of options... ( :geek: and I'm used to that! I'm an android user)
    Heavy traffic is fine... you're stuck in your car and you've all the time to browse the options but…

  16. North up should be persistent between sessions

    I want to be able to use North up as default map orientation. This can be set manually in the client, but has to be specified every time the program is started. It would be nice if this setting could be persistent, or could be set in settings.

  17. Aviso sonoro limite de velocidade

    Com a redução do limite de velocidade para 50 Kms, em diversas vias da cidade de São Paulo, sugiro que o WAZE adote um sinal sonoro, sempre que a velocidade do carro superar os 50Kms, independente da velocidade permitida na via trafegada.
    Recebi diversas multas por excesso de velocidade, muitas por distração, e tenho utilizado outros aplicativos com esse recurso. Acredito que se o WAZE adicionar esse mecanismo, a fidelidade e frequência de uso será ampliada, pois eu, por exemplo, acionarei o aplicativo antes mesmo de entrar no meu veículo (sem mesmo ter a necessidade de ser orientado pelo trânsito).…

  20. Prevent Waze audio if a call is active

    With the Text to Speech navigation active and a call comes in, the application will continue to speak over the caller on the speakerphone. Other audio applications like the audio MP3 player, will mute the music during the call and then resume after the call. Waze client should do the same.
