  2. Allow option to use device's TTS voice synthesis

    The Waze Android client has a decent sounding voice, but Android users can install 3rd party TTS apps. Please give us the option to choose to use the Android Text To Speech synthesis instead.

  3. Favorites in iOS widget

    It would be awesome to see more than just work and home in the iOS widget. I would like to see my favorites listed as well with the same functionality offered for home and work.

  5. Different scoreboards for editors, drivers and forum

    It has been noticed before that the Waze-community is divided between editors and drivers; editors being the users that earn most of their points by editing, drivers are those that earn most of their points behind the steeringwheel.

    Currently, the scoreboard seems to be dominated by drivers - the topnotch of these are probably truckers, spending their live on the road, driving maybe thousands km per week, making up to 20.000 pts. There is nothing wrong with that, we NEED drivers, and I do not want to suggest that they do not earn their points.

    But for editors these are…

  7. Time zone adjustment

    Waze should adjust ETA to the local time when destination is a different time zone. When you leave Phoenix for southwest CO, for example, the ETA should be in mountain time, not AZ time. Currently, the ETA only adjusts when your phone automatically adjusts as you cross the time zone. It would be nice to know drive time is 6 hours, but ETA is 7 hours due to time change.

  8. Jai Haze for New Waze Voice

    Jai Haze is a well known YouTube Vape Reviewer with a comedic voice that’s a cross between Vince Vaughn and Jersey Shore, let’s get Jais Voice on Waze, Jammies and all, to bring his comedic wittiness to our morning commutes! Can you just play him in the backround of Waze? Yes you can obviously but wouldn’t it be more of a fun matrix like commute with him reviewing the new Vape Device in the backround and him also telling you to turn your Jammy left?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  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.…

    Currently available in English and in U.S and Canada.
    Will be available to other countries as well soon.

  12. Weather overlay

    I would love to have a real time weather overlay on the WAZE maps. This would be a GREAT feature to add to aid in knowing more about driving conditions. Please vote and let's see what we can do to make it happen.

  15. 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

  16. Saving 'preferred routes'

    Would be great to have the ability to save preferred routes, especially for commuters who take the same route every day -- despite what routing appears in navigation.

  19. "EV Charging" instead of "Gas Stations"

    You can already tell Waze that you're driving an electric vehicle... so why do I still see "gas stations" as an option? Google Maps already has EV charging station POIs - let us select "EV Charging" instead of "gas stations"!

  20. Android Auto - Use Car Antenna

    Right now, when connecting to Android Auto, Waze still uses the phone GPS antenna. In comparison, Google Maps pulls the location from the headset/car antenna, which is often placed optimally to maximize GPS signal strength from within the car.

    Please set Waze to use the car's GPS antenna when connected via Android Auto
