  1. Full screen buttons for reporting (or even the menus)

    Make the reporting menu fullscreen and rearrange the layout so that it becomes easier to press a button.
    You could do the same thing to the main menu as well. Makes it easier to navigate through the menus while driving...

  2. Add ability to report gas prices

    It would be nice if users could report gas prices... This would attract a LOT more wazers.

    I don't mind having to manually enter the data, but reporting it could be as simple as taking a pic of the price sign with your phone, and on the server side, it gets interpreted and organized into grade of gas and price.

    Wazers will then be able to search filtering out stations that have (or don't have) diesel, or if your vehicle requires higher octane, one will be able to filter out specific details to match their needs.

  4. Alerta de farois ligados em rodovias

    Com a nova lei no Brasil que obriga o farol baixo nas estradas ainda que de dia, o waze poderia emitir um alerta para confirmar que os faróis estão acesos sempre que acessar uma rodovia.

  5. Train crossings and train stoppage.

    Okay, I thought your app had everything until today. I ran into a slow train crossing. This is a difficult one because trains are there and then not there. I would like the ability to report trains and maybe speed/length in general terms. Then there are the trains that just stop on the crossing for an extended amount of time. Those would be very helpful to report. But, at least being able to report the train is crossing and direction of movement will help people I think.

  6. Allow longer routes

    Waze should really start to allow longer routes, if the money is a problem then there should be a additional subscription possible so people that want to go on longer commutes can do so. This just sucks, If you live in The Netherlands it's not even possible to navigate to the middle of France. So any work stuff there and also vacantions are impossible to navigate.

    MAKE IT POSSIBLE! I'm sure I and alot of other people are willing to pay at the moments they need to do longer routes. Let's say 5/10 dollars for a month subscription to do…

  7. Keep waze on top

    When making a phonecall via hands free, waze should stay on top. It's pointless showing the call app, because 1. My screen then locks, so I can't unlock without touching the phone. 2. I can't get directions while I am on the outgoing call...

  8. Help save children lives

    Due to the widespread phenomena of children left in vehicles, you can add an option for parents, when you say 'you have reached your destination', to add 'make sure you didn't leave anyone in the car'.

  10. Auto return to "Me on map"

    I want a setting in the client where you can choose to return to "Me on map" after 10, 20, 30, 45 or 60 seconds of user inactivity.

    Now available  ·  krankyd responded

    favorite locations are now saved with your user data on the server.
    When installing a fresh version of waze (and not upgrading), you will get a message asking if you’d like to download favorites from the server.

  12. Share destination with anoter waser

    It coulb be interesting to add a "share destination" function. You send your destination to your friend and you could see how many km they have to do, when they will arrived etc.

  13. Option of "Traffic Lights not Working" under Hazard reporting

    Add a additional option under "Hazards" for traffic lights not working. This is a very real hazard and also has the effect of creating traffic congestion. With this feature the cause for a traffic jams can be better determined and the start/end point more accurately defined.

  14. Location services

    Under Locations in our phones Waze has to be set to Always or Never while apps such as Maps and Lyft has the choices of Never or While Using. I think waze should also only use or location services while we are using the app. We don't need Waze to be tracking our location and wasting our battery every second of the day but only while we are using the app. This can obviously be made possible. If Maps and Lyft allows us this common sense option, then Waze should too.

  15. Replace "accident" with "crash"

    The term "accident" implies that no one was at fault. This is an inaccurate word choice, unless you know for a fact that no one involved did anything negligent to cause the crash. Widespread use of the term "accident" implies that road injuries and deaths are unavoidable, and creates an environment where they are simply accepted as a cost of doing business, when in fact, there is a lot that can be done to prevent such carnage. The terms "crash" and "collision" are much more accurate, as they do not imply fault or lack of fault.

  16. Stop automatically reading contacts and sending sms messages without express permission.

    It is very sleazy to "harvest" or contacts and down then with text messages. You never asked express permission to do this. It should only be something you offer to opt into for specific contacts.

  17. Create a "dangerous spot" alert

    I live in São Paulo - Brazil, and unfortunately we have a serious problem with violence in traffic.
    Just a few days ago I was a victim of an armed robbery in a very know avenue, and we have a lot of spots that this kind of action is frequent.
    So, my suggestion is that drivers can allert and input information like this so waze can identify this spots and maybe even suggest a detour depending on time day (since this actions are much more frequent at late hours).
    These kind of data would also be very helpsful to police…

  20. Compass

    Could you please add a very simple compass to the view? I know that I can set the map to have north up, but I would like to have a little compass in the other view (that is like more) just to know the bearing. thank you. Waze is now my default navigation app.
