  1. 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.

  2. Average speed camera zone - show an icon at the start point

    In Portugal, during last weeks, the competent government entity gave a “gift" to the drives: new average speed cameras on a lot of roads / highways.

    Such type of cameras are new in Portugal, so many URs started to popup on WME where Wazers "complained" about the fact of not being shown an icon of the radar on the APP map.

    Even at the risk of starting to have the map too polluted with icons, like those Wazers, I also think that an icon should be shown in the APP at the start point of the average speed camera.

  4. COVID-19 Outbreak Tracking

    Provide daily COVID-19 Outbreak Tracking. Your app should display red shaded bubbles over areas with outbreaks, with the bubble size proportional to the outbreak size. For example right now on March 19, 2020, there would be a large shaded red bubble over New York City. This would correspond to the current outbreak in New York city, and advise motorist to avoid this area as a stopover or even as a drive-through. This could help motorists avoid contamination and/or travel delays in the future if there are “containment “ areas. (You could get the data feed from John’s Hopkins or others)

  5. "Avoid" option for single track roads with passing places

    When travelling in Devon, Cornwall or anywhere where there is a lot of unspoiled countryside, I suggest Waze make available an option in the Navigation Settings to "AVOID" Single Track Roads With Passing Places.

  6. Waze - Plan my day route scheduling

    A great addition to the Waze App would be to have it plan my entire day or something as simple as errands. Start by entering a start time and a list of addresses to visit (e.g. drop-off kids, grocery store, and other errands....getting me back home in time to pick-up the kids at school at the end of the school day), Waze could optimize my route and schedule based on traffic and ETA. It might even choose the most effective route by reordering the destinations/waypoints. Other applications are for small businesses to do route planning to save time and fuel.…

  8. bridge

    I think an option in the driver settings to ‘avoid low bridges’ would be a useful tool for many.

  11. Affichage nom des rues : très gênant !!!

    Bonjour,

    J'utilise la dernière version Androïd disponible (4.24.0.2), et je suis souvent gêné par les très (trop) nombreuses bulles indiquant le nom des rues sur mon trajet.
    Cela masque fréquemment des intersections, et n'apporte aucune d'aide à la navigation.

    Puis-je les désactiver ? Comment ?

    Merci

  13. Car on right or left side of the road

    Letting drivers know what side of the road the car is on.
    The first report os just "car is on the the side of the road," once reported the next wazer can confirm which side right or left.
    This 2 step reporting is less distracting to drivers

  14. Wrong way driver alert

    Wrong way driver alert. Alert wazers if they enter a freeway on ramp going in the wrong direction also alert other wazers with a loud audible alarm (much like the Amber alert alarm) that there is a wrong way driver approaching.

  15. New instructions for crossroad junctions/interchange

    In the UK, there has been an ongoing debate on the most effective way to map crossroad junctions where drivers have to cross a main road without priority, as shown in this image:
    https://imgur.com/bpKJi9R

    The default instructions do not include guidance for routes that go straight, leading to URs for missing instructions even when no turns are required. As there's no instruction, the driver may not realise they have to give way/stop, leading to a potential accident.

    If we were to add a "Continue" instruction, it may imply priority, which is not the case, and again, this may lead to…

  16. Ambulance / Fire

    You have an option to show where police are visible. Please add the option to show where EMS (ambulance / fire / rescue) are visible.
    This not only can serve to protect the EMS at a scene, it will also protect motorist coming up to an accident scene.

  17. Sloping / inclined streets

    In Latam and some other cities I have known, there are streets with inclines of more than 15° and some vehicles cannot drive up these roads due to several factors.

    1) low power vehicles
    2) Motorcycles
    3) climatic factors that prevent the vehicle to go up this road.
    4) vehicles parked on the sides that prevent other vehicles from passing.

    It would be interesting to make waze as well as avoid freeway roads we can add the inclination and avoid it.

  20. Add Rest Areas to Categories

    Show rest areas and allow users set notifications for distances between rest areas or services (fuel, restrooms, food.) Driver fatigue is a significant contributor to vehicle accidents and some highways have few services or rest areas.
