  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. Alphabetize favorites

    It is so hard to find a favorite address that you have saved and would be great if they were in alphabetical order.

  8. Prevent Waze audio if a call is active

    With the Text to Speech navigation active and a call comes in, the application will continue to speak over the caller on the speakerphone. Other audio applications like the audio MP3 player, will mute the music during the call and then resume after the call. Waze client should do the same.

  9. 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?

  10. Warning: Vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead

    Disable warnings for vehicles on shoulder. In high density areas there is always a vehicle on the shoulder. To the point that it will stop my internet radio every 5 minutes for another warning. This is especially annoying when the vehicle is 30 feet off the road and NOT a hazard. Yes, you can click "not there", but that in itself is a hazard every 5 minutes to click it off. It's a nuisance, a danger, and just not useful for many.

  11. Aviso de lombadas (quebra-molas)

    Muito importante o aviso da existência de lombadas ou Saliências, uma vez que a maioria não possui sinalização adequada. Fato que pode até mesmo causar acidentes ou sérios danos ao veículo.

  12. Alerta de farois ligados em rodovias

    Com a nova lei no Brasil que obriga o farol baixo nas estradas ainda que de dia, o waze poderia emitir um alerta para confirmar que os faróis estão acesos sempre que acessar uma rodovia.
    Noticia da lei: http://g1.globo.com/carros/noticia/2016/05/lei-torna-farol-baixo-obrigatorio-em-estradas-durante-o-dia.html

  13. 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.

  15. Offer a satellite view of the map.

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

  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!!!!

  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.

    באנדרואיד יש אפשרות בשם "שהות חכמה" שמאפשרת לסמארטפון לזהות בעזרת המצלמה הקדמית…

  20. Allow longer routes

    Waze should really start to allow longer routes, if the money is a problem then there should be a additional subscription possible so people that want to go on longer commutes can do so. This just sucks, If you live in The Netherlands it's not even possible to navigate to the middle of France. So any work stuff there and also vacantions are impossible to navigate.

    MAKE IT POSSIBLE! I'm sure I and alot of other people are willing to pay at the moments they need to do longer routes. Let's say 5/10 dollars for a month subscription to do…
