  1. update alerts for other side of road

    I would like to be able to update alerts on either side of the road as no longer there, not just the side of the road I'm traveling on. Just like how Waze currently asks if a hazard is still there if it's in my traveling direction, it'd be nice to be able to click on a hazard or alert on the opposite side of the road and delete it if it's no longer there or relevant.
    Also, what happened to reporting hazards/traffic on the opposite side of the road after this newest android update? It's awful! It needs to…

  2. why is there no ambulance car option? and option to show hospitals on map? I am an EMT who uses Waze at work all the time!

    Add ambulance icon to car options, and an option to show hospitals, maybe even the closest ER facility to current location! I use Waze all the time at work as an EMT, and while the first suggestion would just be a treat for those, like me, in the EMS field, the second option would have the ability to assuage new EMTs fears of not knowing the closest hospital facility (we cover ALL of Colorado, though mainly Denver metro area, but still a huge area to learn when you're new).

  3. Traffic lights option button

    Hello wazers. There are some traffic lights that are fast enough to pass through and some others that are extremely slow (2-3 cars per time). Waze commonly proposes directions through traffic lights (Even when there are other options).
    I think that a “traffic light” option button that characterizes it as slow or fast, would be a good addition in order to accelerate our proposed roots

  5. Need improving favorite / search

    I have idea about favorite / search

    1. Why not let Waze search address from my contact list?
    2. Why not create folder in favorite? Like Friend, Company, Restaurant, etc.
    3. When click address on contact, link to Waze instead iPhone's map

    That would be great!

  6. Radar Traject Control android auto

    When you use Android Auto you can't see how long Radar Traject Control is or when it is finished. (green bar when you use Waze on smartphone)

    It could be nice to implement it (below the traject info) in Waze Android auto.

    I use an samsung phone and ride with an Peugeot 203

  7. Average speedcheck or traffic jam progress bar in horizontal mode or when using android auto

    Currently the progress bar is only available in vertical mode.
    If you hold you phone horizontal the progress bar goes away. For traffic jams this is not really a big problem. But when driving through an average speed check, it is handy to see how far along the average speed check you are. There is also no notification at the end of an average speed check. This would already make it a lil handier to hear when an average speed check zone has ended.

    Android Auto Proected is a major focus for us in this year, and we encourage you to read more about it in the Android Auto forum for updates and latest releases.
    Thanks!

  9. Be able to show an accident or hazard for the opposite side of the road. Many times, we'll see it on the opposite side.

    Many times, we see accidents on the opposite but when we report it, it says our side.

  11. 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.

  12. option to disable the "This route is x faster than this other route"

    Currently, after choosing a destination in Waze, it will also tell you that the route it's telling you is faster than some other route.

    Why is theere a need to tell me that the current route is 6 minutes, 10 minutes, 17 minutes faster than the other route? It's a waste of time waiting for it to stop describing the slower route's time and streets/highways.

    I would like an option to disable the post-selection vocal description of slower routes.

  13. ALWAYS display the destination address please! It helps when driving for Lyft & Uber.

    If it's always displayed I won't have to switch off the waze app and go to my Lyft or Uber app to verify address. PLEASE include in next update! It can be a SAFETY HAZARD! Thank you!

  14. Change the route color from purple to green, yellow or red, depending on how recently the route has been 'swept' by another Wazer.

    Change the route color from purple to green, yellow or red, depending on how recently the route has been 'swept' by another Wazer: Green = route traversed by another Wazer no longer than 2 minutes ago; yellow = 2 to 5 minutes; red = no Wazer traffic within the last 5 minutes.

  16. Police Car in the middle

    On the open interstate highways in the USA the State Highway Patrol sit in the middle but I don't know which direction the police is shooting. If there is a "middle" option, it would alert Waze users of either direction. Not only one side of the highway

  18. Disable irrelevant ads POI

    I understand ads are the most important thing in your business model, but wouldn't it be better to have targeted ads?

    Please allow us to disable irrelevant ads. I'm sick of seeing fast food POIs. I won't go, ever! Give me fancy restaurants instead!

  19. Indicate both start and end of roadworks / traffic

    For users that mark the beginning or roadworks / traffic, leave up an icon that they can press to indicate the end of the traffic. From this, work out how long it took me to get through the zone and pass on the info to other users.
