  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    שלום , אני נהג משאית ומשתמש בוואיז באופן יום יומי , האמת היא שזאת אפלקציה נהדרת , אבל אני וכל החברים שלי יש לנו בעיה אחד , או דבר שאנו רוצים להציע לכם לעשות , בהרבה מקרים אנחנו נתקלים בכבישים שאי אפשר לעבור אותם עם רכב ציוד כבד , אתם נותדים את המסלול לפי אוטו פרטי , אז אם אפשר לעשות אופציה להגדרת הרכב כי רכב משאית כבד ואז להתרחק מכבישים צרים ...

  6. 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…

  9. Tourist arriving at israel who are renting a car; be willing to use Waze in order to get to the nearest gas stations that are oparating duri

    Tourists arriving to Israel who are renting a car, may be interested to use Waze in order to get to the nearest gas stations that is open during weekends.

    רבים בציבור מעוניינים לתדלק אך ורק בתחנת דלק שפעילה גם במהלך סופי שבוע וחגים. נשמח אם תאפשרו הוספת פונקציה לאפליקציה שתציג בפני המנווט/ת אך ורק תחנות דלק כאלה, גם אם התדלוק הוא במהלך השבוע.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.…

  15. automotive

    Hi,
    when can we expect Waze be compatible on the Android Automotive OS (so not Android Auto, but Android Automotive as the new OS for the Polestar 2 car).
    thanks for you reply

  16. Timezone Changes included in the ETA

    I constantly go back and forth between two timezones and wish that Waze would take this into account when showing me the ETA in the new timezone instead of showing me the current timezones ETA that I am leaving. It does update on the fly, but it should show up at the beginning if it knows I am crossing timezones.

  17. 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?

  19. Sync with Google "my places"

    it would be great to be able to sync the places already stored in google's my places. So you don´t have to search for them separately and have them at hand even quicker.

    more advanced: sharing your places with friends or family members across devices would be great.

    finally: being able to save places on the webinterface and syncing to user devices would be nice

    waze rocks - keep up the good work!

  20. Add a feature to announce or indicate the side of the street the destination is on.

    It would save so much time and be safer if I knew what side of the street my destination was on. The address should tell waze anyway so I believe this data is already available.
