  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  6. 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!!!!

  7. Matt Berry Voice Navigation

    Matt Berry Voice Navigation

    Esteemed actor, musician, performer, and artist, Matt Berry, would make a stupendous addition to the Waze program and community. With a confident, sultry, and seductive presence, Matt Berry would guide thousands of drivers to their destinations in the comfort of his soothing, tenor voice.

    We, the people, recognize that Matt Berry is busy with his numerous endeavors and that Waze has countless features they strive to add to an already vigorous navigation system. It is with this in mind that we humbly suggest a few lines pulled from his revered catalog of work along with new…

  10. Option to keep "battery saver" always on

    Waze has this new "battery saver" feature that dims the screen when there is a long way until the next turn/action. As I understand, currently this feature only kicks in when the battery level is low (<25%). Or you can manually turn it on for a current trip, but it revert to the default behaviour next time you start Waze.

    I suggest to add an option to keep it ALWAYS on. Because I would like to use it all the time... Even if the battery level is not low, I'd like to save it for the rest of the day.…

  11. Truckers need food/restroom help during Covid-19 shut down

    Truckers need help finding restrooms and food that is open and will accept phone orders and walk food out curbside. Their large trucks cannot access drive thrus and they’re not allowed to walk up through the drive thru for safety reasons. With closed dining spaces truckers are going hungry trying to get food and supplies to us during the Covid-19 epidemic. We need a way for them to find open restrooms they can access and food that will walk it out to them as needed. Please Waze, these men and women are heroes. Working their butts off when many of…

  12. 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.

  13. Automatic start Waze when connect to car bluetooth (and turn off when blutetooth is off)

    Automatic on/ off waze when connect to paired bluetooh adapter.
    This is best way to have waze on when is needed in car.
    Leave the car - waze goes off.
    This bulid in feature have a Yanosik app (waze clone in Poland)

  14. Let users add speed camera locations

    I noticed with the newest update that you omitted letting users update red light/ speed camera locations from the app .. not sure- why but I’d like to petition you to please add it back ..... we here in NYC are getting bombarded with cameras that have nothing to do with driving safe ( not near schools - hospitals etc) they are just another way for this city to take money from its hard working overtaxed citizens..

  15. 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

  16. Drive Summary

    At the end of a drive, give a quick overview of drive time, distance covered, amount of time spent in traffic. Bonus would be how much time it would have taken on an alternate route or "This is record time for your commute!" +6pts.

  17. When reporting police / speed trap, offer "middle" or "median" instead of only "my lane" and "other lane" so both directions can be notified

    Many times police sit in the median and are watching both directions on a highway, a "middle" option for lane would be beneficial so both directions can be warned of a speed trap.

  18. Using the smartphone's front camera for alert about driver's tiredness

    In Android there is a feature named "smart stay" which allows the smartphone to recognize, using the front camera, if the user is watching the screen (in order to turn off the screen when not in use) - see

    http://www.androidcentral.com/how-use-smart-stay-galaxy-s3

    I wonder whether it would be possible to create a similar function in Waze, that would recognize (by visually recognizing when the eyes close for longer than a fraction of second) and alert if the driver falls asleep. If this is possible (even partially), it can save lives.
