  2. Offer a satellite view of the map.

    I like how Google maps gives me the satellite view. Why doesn't Waze do that?

  3. Remove Chit-Chat option for Iranian users

    The Iranian people use this option for political purposes and insult to each other and racism. This has led Iran's government to ban this great app in the country.

  4. Waze commercial vehicle option

    How easy would it be to have editors report when roads are or are not for commercial vehicles?
    Is there a reason why this hasn't been done already?

  5. In honor of White Cane Safety Day, create a alert to drivers that notifies the driver a person using a white cane is ahead.

    A person with a visual impairment can log on to the app and WAZE will track the user as they walk.
    A driver using the app is notified when a person using a white cane is nearby.

  6. Protest the removal of the police warning feature!

    The Sheriff's association is using the tired old excuse that the police warning feature in the Waze app "could be used by terrorists." That is a RIDICULOUS excuse! The truth is that they just don't want us having the ability to warn others about their friggin' speed traps, and they don't want us avoiding tickets! Terrorists my shiny white butt! They use all of their technology against us, and then when we have something to use against them they just don't like it. This feature in Waze is just the next step above radar detectors. Well we got those and…

  7. Destination house number appear

    I have noticed many times that once you arrive to your street destination, it doesn't display the house number. This is really annoying, because I am a delivery driver. So once I hit the street, I have to grab my clipboard and look at the invoice to see the house number.

    I would imagine this is a easy fix and would help wazers out.

  8. animal road kill

    We think that waze should add to their warning menu a button that would make an area that's calle: animal danger zone when you see dead animals there, and after 10 votes that would happen. We believe that this would save many animals.

  9. Open up Waze to developers so we get third party plugins!

    Would be amazing if Waze allowed other developers to integrate their software AND hardware to use with Waze.

    Escort radar has their own app where if you hold a button on their radar detector, it'd report it on their cloud to other Escort users that a police is spotted.

    However, having to have two apps loaded at a time makes it very difficult to catch alerts from both apps at the same time. Opening up an SDK or API on Waze and allowing other companies and developers to integrate with Waze would allow Waze to dominate the industry.

    With this…

  11. Radar alert with visual speed information

    I suggest inserting the speed information into the radar notification. The notification now only reports that there is a radar a few meters ahead, not to mention speed. The radar speeds are all set up in the Waze maps, being information that can be easily extracted. The feature would certainly help many users, even eliminating the use of applications that perform this function. I also recommend that in settings there be options to "always be notified", "be notified only when above speed" or "never be notified." Allowing the user to decide on notifications.

  13. TRIP LOG

    TRIP LOG
    Trip Log records and saves the information within the application. You can easily have the access to ALL the trips with just one click.

  15. Timezone Changes included in the ETA

    I constantly go back and forth between two timezones and wish that Waze would take this into account when showing me the ETA in the new timezone instead of showing me the current timezones ETA that I am leaving. It does update on the fly, but it should show up at the beginning if it knows I am crossing timezones.

  16. Keep Arnold Schwarzenegger Voice Forever.

    I've noticed voices disappear which I really loved (like Sleepy Hollow's Ichabod Crane). And I'm dreading the day Arnold disappears... I love the T-800 giving me directions "if I want to live." Is there any way we can keep the voice forever? Damn the licensing!!!!

  17. Can waze add the option to users give some road alerts even when they are offline, and share this as soon the have signal back? Is often no

    Can waze add the option to users give some road alerts even when they are offline, and share this as soon the have signal back?

    Is often not sharing something in the road because I don't have 3G on my iPad at that moment. It should be possible to waze to keep the gps position and send it to the network when possible.

    Better could be to pass some police control and later set the correct position of the police alert.

  20. Waze debe proteger la integridad física y síquica de sus usuarios

    @ChileWaze Waze no está identificando los lugares en que hay manifestaciones!! Ayer me llevó por Avda Providencia, en Santiago de Chile, con calle Seminario, donde CASI ME AGREDEN con piedras y artefactos cortantes.
    La app no tiene una opción que permita avisar de estas situaciones de peligro, y lo peor, sugiere transitar por calles y avenidas, ocupadas por manifestantes agresivos.
    En todas las ciudades importantes del mundo, hay protestas pacíficas o violentas, y la aplicación no advierte su presencia, poniendo en peligro a sus usuarios
