  1. Using the smartphone's front camera for alert about driver's tiredness

    In Android there is a feature named "smart stay" which allows the smartphone to recognize, using the front camera, if the user is watching the screen (in order to turn off the screen when not in use) - see

    http://www.androidcentral.com/how-use-smart-stay-galaxy-s3

    I wonder whether it would be possible to create a similar function in Waze, that would recognize (by visually recognizing when the eyes close for longer than a fraction of second) and alert if the driver falls asleep. If this is possible (even partially), it can save lives.

  2. Toll roads

    When entering in a destination, please put the toll roads option there instead of in the settings. I am a driver in New York City. All day long, I would need to go into settings and check/uncheck toll roads. When I drive a passenger, of course, all the toll roads are taken, but when returning, I avoid as much as possible. Please change the tolls feature to somewhere when entering in the destination. Thank you

  4. 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

  6. Provide option to make speed limit sign bigger

    Thanks for the great guys. Can you please make an option in settings to make the speed limit sign that is displayed in the lower left corner of the app bigger. I have trouble seeing it and if there was a switch in settings to make the speed limit sign bigger that would be awesome. Thanks.

  7. Mute re-routing sound

    The constant re-routing sound waze makes when I choose not to take the exact route she wants me to, or because I kiss a turn is loud in my Bluetooth and even though I have the sound turned down its still annoying. I know she is going to re-route me so I don't need that loud Beep she makes. No other GPS device does this. If we could please have an option to mute this, then that would be amazing. Thanks.

  8. Choosing personal max speed highway

    hello, I wanted to know if it was possible to set on Waze a maximum speed on the highway lower than the maximum speed in order to obtain the correct durations of the route. indeed I do not drive at 130km/h but at 110km/h. I don't know how to fix it. Thanks in advance.

  9. Mute voice guidance near home/work‏

    Please have an option to mute the voice guidance in a radius of [X] distance from my home, and/or from work. Alerts should not be muted by this setting.

    It's annoying that I have to listen to voice guidance near my home -- I know how to get from my house to the main road, thank you very much! But turning the voice off and on again during the drive (during every drive!) is a nuisance and a safety risk.

  10. Ok Waze

    Bring back the ‘OK Waze’ voice search.

    This was an extremely useful feature to enter a new destination whilst driving. Unsure why it was discontinued. Now you have to touch your device to enter a destination.

  13. App radio One Compatibility

    Please update Waze to be compatible with Pioneer AppRadio One car stereos. This was one feature I really wanted and thought I'd be getting with my new car deck, I was disappointed to see it was only compatible with older versions.

  14. Option to have the "menu" and "report" buttons to be invisible so as not to have a burn in ghost image of the buttons on screen.

    The screen is usually ON through out the duration of driving. The MENU and REPORT buttons have a high likelihood to be "burned in" screen, creating a "permanent" ghost image.

    Having the option to replace it with invisible hotspots (frequent users will know where to touch anyway) will minimize this because of moving images.

    AMOLED screens are fairly prone to "burn in"

  15. Elevation on map screen

    Add elevation to the main screen, perhaps as an option like having the speedometer.

    Not sure if it is possible, but I assume it is, as my old Garmin gps could do it.

  17. police

    Please reinstate the "Police on Other Side" feature. Reporting speed traps is the most useful reason to report police, and traffic moving in opposite direction will always be better suited to identify and report.

  18. Setting to turn off big purple road names

    Many times these "new" big purple road names block the map at intersections and make it difficult to know if you are turning onto the correct street.

  19. Lane Guidance on Roundabouts

    When approaching a roundabout in the UK, waze will not tell me which lane I need to be in, to take my desired exit.

    This is something that Google maps does so WELL! Please consider adding this on waze.

  20. Wazer tracking in real time

    It would be great to track in real time one or two people, with their consent, possibly by pinging them to agree, so you can see their movements at the same time with your own live. It would make it much easier to meet up with someone, etc.  The SpeedFreak App let's you track up to 4 people in real time and works quite well.
