  1. Gas prices

    Unable to update gas prices now. When I try to update gas prices it says I’m a baby Wazer. So now Waze you’ll rather have inaccurate prices posted. Allow everyone to update gas prices.

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze displays gas prices in many parts of the world. For more accurate prices, choose your gas type under Settings > Gas stations.

  2. A motorcycle-mode that offers courses with turns in place of major roads

    As with Tomtom's motorcycle-mode, it is possible to configure a circuit comprising more small roads with turns than major roads

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze already has Motorcycle Mode included in the app. To change your vehicle type, tap Settings > Car Details > Vehicle type.

  3. WAZE urgently needs updating in Queensland, Australia where in country and coastal areas is is almost unusable! MUST GET speed limits on map

    WAZE urgently needs updating in Queensland, Australia where in country and coastal areas is is almost unusable! MUST GET speed limits on map, about the only App where they are not shown!

  4. #1 IDEA: add Tracking "While Using" option like NOW


    1. Add "While Using" option immediately


    2. Show "Routes" or "Route" as a map! For SAFETY'S sake.

      These are both basic and obvious; and serve us optimally

  6. Waze no CarPlay pesquisa por voz

    Waze no CarPlay deveria ter a pesquisa de endereço por voz igual ao Google Maps. Isso facilitaria muito!

    Waze on CarPlay should have the same voice search as Google Maps. That would make it much easier!

    Other side reporting is available for police and crashes.

    Creating a route from different location is a bit tricky, but possible. Here’s the flow:
    1. Select an address, which would be your starting point
    2. On the preview location page tap on ‘More’ button (three dots), tap ‘Select as starting point’
    3. Select an address which would be your destination
    4. Tap ‘Go’ – Waze would calculate a route from selected start point to the selected destination point.

  9. the option to chose critical overspeeding threshold (in km/miles like 2-5 mph for 70 mph speed limit or use percentage)

    Good idea is to add the option to chose critical overspeeding threshold (in km/miles like 2-5 mph for 70 mph speed limit or use percentage). Flash (with sound) the screen when overspeeding or near of overspeeding occurs. And double/multiply earned points for safe and active drivers :) in dependence of time slot like a rush hour or happy hour or last week :) hope it helps!

  10. "no right on red" avoidance -- avoiding choke points and "queue across intersection"

    "No right on red" avoidance (mentioned in "choke buster") would avoid a route that includes arriving at a major road where traffic tends queue across the intersection during peak hours.

    Waze could also detect and actively avoid or reroute detours around intersections where other fleet movement would indicate the intersection is not clearing traffic during each traffic light cycle.

  11. כביש 6

    אני מציע שאחד המסלולים האפשריים הוא כביש 6 יופיע בצד את המחיר לפי בחירת תעריף (פסקול או מחיר רגיל או משאית וכו') לפי דעתי זה ממש טוב להיעזר להחליט במסלול

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze already takes license plate restrictions into account, in many parts of the world. To enable this feature, add your license plate details under Settings > Car details > License plate.

  12. Make sure the Waze app can send location data even with the app turned off

    Actually, in order to send traffic information data, waze App must be turned on even if without any routing. In my humble opinion it is a big obligation that for example, Google maps doesn't have.

    If i well understand, there is already a privacy statement under the setting section, where the user is asked to send always localization data, but actually it is used only for calendar events. I would like to extend the localization data information also to improve the roads traffic pattern.

    Thanks for your contribution.
    Please go to app Settings – Privacy – Location – Always on. If this setting is not available in app, please go to the privacy settings on your device and give location permission ‘Allow all the time’ to Waze.

  13. Add an option where you can choose whether you will be using a carpool lane so that

    Add an option where you can choose whether you will be using a carpool lane so that traffic and ETA data are more accurate. If many members in a given area are using carpool lanes, they will bring the average speed up and ETA will be sooner than actual. There are times where my ETA has increased by 30 minutes on a 1 hour drive.

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze offers HOV routing for taxis. To change your vehicle type go to Settings > Vehicle type. There are currently no plans to add more HOV options.

  14. Prices of highway tollbooth in México

    Describe the costs of the tollbooth in all Mexico to have the budget of the trip like the app "Traza tu ruta" with the link showed below http://app.sct.gob.mx/sibuac_internet/ControllerUI?action=cmdEscogeRuta

  16. Show cost of travel (toll + fuel + maybe parking values).

    When choosing a destination and between different paths, toll routes could have the cost of those tolls.
    As an additional feature it could calculate fuel cost (having the car/engine information, average speed and total distance).

  18. Adding flooded streets/roads icon

    adding a way to detect if a road in or on your route would certainly help a lot of people since most of them don't understand [turn around don't drown]. You might be surprised but it might save a few lives!

  19. Speaking road name/numbers in other languages

    I am English living in Hungary. Waze in Hungarian does nor speak the road names/numbers. Since Hungarian is a phonetic language, it must be a relatively standard task to write the code for Hungarian.
    I am not just blowing hot air - my partner is a phonetic linguist, and I do IT. So if you want to get this going, we could provide support.

  20. With the new law of headlights on in Brazil would be a useful reminder to turn the headlights on highways and off the end of the route.

    In Brazil, with the new law requiring low headlights on during the day on highways, it would be a useful reminder to turn the headlights on access to highways and to turn off the end of the route.
