    Great news! The Waze Beacons Program is in the works and constantly expanding.
    The Waze Beacons Program is the first scalable, affordable solution in the world to power navigation in tunnels. Currently available in select tunnels throughout Pittsburgh, Haifa, Israel, Paris and Rio de Janeiro – seamless navigation is available to Wazers underground simply by turning on Bluetooth functionality.

  2. House numbers with slash

    Allow add house numbers with slash. For example: 631/29. 639 is for building, 29 is for entrance (Distance between entrances can by big). All block-buildings in my country has this double numbers.Also houses can be marked 10/a 10/b. It is not possible to add this type of number to editor, so usually we have just streets but no one is adding house numbers - as it would be inaccurate to put just first or second number.

  3. Please add suburbs / neighborhoods / sections

    In many many streets in Latin America as in other Europe countries, in the same city could be a lot of different streets with the same name, the only info that differs them is the name of the neighborhood or suburb. It would be awesome if you guys could fit that info.

  4. Create lane assistance like Tom Tom.

    I have iPhone 5 with iOS 6 and as its a bigger screen and faster chip I think waze should create lane assist like Tom toms. This would be big but could be completed by wazers on editor for points, it would soon catch up. Lane assist can tell you which lane to use for a direction.

  5. Client Suggestion: Voice Recognition

    I was driving from Las Vegas, NV to Fullerton, CA this past weekend. During the trip, I had a few hours to think of what client upgrades could be implemented into WAZE. Specifically, as the title of this thread suggests, I thought about Voice Recognition. This came about as I sent a report, but was unable to type a comment, thanks to texting and driving dangers.

    Here is what I was thinking:
    Voice Recognition would always be active while WAZE is active. Instead of pushing a button to activate Waze, what if a keyword was programmed to start the functionality.…

    Currently available in English and in U.S and Canada.
    Will be available to other countries as well soon.

  6. Display interstate/highway shields on client map.

    Right now the live maps can display highway shields with limited functionality. Adding this ability to the client maps (and expanding its scope, as right now it is only partially functional) would really make it easier to orient yourself when viewing the map.

    It would be nice if it was an option, as well... so you could disable it (like you can disable road goodies or other things) if you don't want to view them.

    Currently working on N. America. will be implanted in the world server in the future.

  7. Force uploading maps recorded without internet connection

    It would be really helpful for cities that are wazed poorly or have only a few waze members for now. Especially considering that there I've got no unlimited mobile internet plans and keeping connection always on is just a waste of money.

    this is working partially – for some devices and on some scenarios. In any case, you will need to start the session with a connection.
    We are working to improve it as we realize some areas simply don’t have good internet connectiivty.

  8. Hitch hike - (Carona)

    Add the option to switch from “driver” to “hitchhiker” in the app. As a hitchhiker, you inform to Waze where you want to go. When a driver do the same, it will show on the map all the hitchhikers that could be benefited by his route. It’s now up to the driver if he want to pick them up.
    It could be possible to change the privacy preferences for:
    - showing your routes for all the hitchhikers;
    - show only for hitchhikers that are in a specific group;
    - show only to your Facebook friends;
    - or hide for everyone…

  9. create a button to delete all browsing history, at once

    in the current version to remove all paths, you must remove one by one! at the end of the historical relationship could have a "remove all"

  11. Overcast

    Would love to have integration with Overcast and other podcast apps with waze. It’s great to have Spotify but having the same integration with other podcast apps.

    The lesss distracted driving the better :)

  12. carpool match

    I would like to use Waze to match me with carpool buddies. Waze has a large community of active users, already knows my origin and destination as well as time of day that I leave for and from work. It also has all this information for people in the neighborhood.

    If Wazers can indicate if they are open to carpooling, then Waze can help connect them.

    There are some apps like Avego that try to help, but because they have such few users, they aren't useful.

    Would you prefer to carpool if you could ?

  13. red light camera alerts less frequent

    I have two red light cameras on my commute. They appear the same way as alerts for police or accidents >>with a request to confirm it<<....every single day.
    For alerts that seldom change, I suggest an alert without the confirmation request. Or perhaps request to confirm it once/month.

  14. 2 Ideas!

    Hi, ive got two ideas: 1. When starting a new ride from a parking car, Waze does not know which direction the vehicle is facing. And because of Murphy's rules, most of the time it will plan the opposite route :) My suggestion is: before starting navigation I will have the option to calibarate the direction my vehicle facing (button that using the internal compass) . and now that Waze can understand that im facing east for example it can plan the right route. 2. adding an option so Waze know im driving a motorcycle so it can plane the…

    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.

    As for the idea with adjusting car facing direction, it is under consideration.

  15. carpooling

    It would be great to couple waze with a carpooling app (short and long distance).

    A driver, who agrees to give people a ride (for free or not), takes a ride from point A to point B. His route is calculated and defined by the GPS. Then a person living close to the route willing to travel towards B would receive a notification and could join the drivers' route.

    This would probably reduce the traffic jams around cities in peak hours.

  16. voice search

    When using the voice search function, there needs to be another button to hit "enter" and make it search. Currently, when I say an address (which I do often, because I don't want to type while driving), the address goes into the search bar, but nothing happens. I still need to click on the search the bar, then click enter, which completely defeats the purpose of voice searching, as I have to take my eyes off the road and find which buttons to hit. It also takes more time, is more cumbersome, and makes me less likely to use the…

    Thank you for your suggestion! Waze will soon support Google Assistance voice control. To know more about this feature, stay tuned on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram

  17. Waze me

    I think about a features for helping to carpooling. All wazers could suscribe to this service.
    The car driver submit the number of place, the capacity for luggage etc...
    The searcher submit the number of people, the luggage size etc...
    If the searcher is one the way of the car driver the service related puts both.
    This features can be improve wih a note for the car driver/the searcher. Also with a distance to walk or to drive allowed to go for carpooling, eventually with the possibility to go to the destination with several driver etc...
    It could be also…

  18. Speed trap

    I go to work same path every day, Waze notifies me about same speed trap every day too, can you make a button “do not show again”? Second if ignore thanks click, message stays, it definitely should disappear after 1 min.

  19. Waze carpool online

    I want to signin and setup rides online in the web as well. It is not letting me create my rides online. It is only directing me to use only the app.

    I am anyway signing in the app and the web as well. Please integrate both so that waze carpool could be done using browsers as well instead of only the app.

  20. Очень нужна интеграция навигатора с сервисом поиска попутчиков внутри города

    Очень нужна интеграция навигатора с сервисом поиска попутчиков внутри города. Проложил маршрут - сразу видишь, кого, откуда и куда можешь подвезти. Вполне возможно, что многим людям, которые мокнут на остановке, с тобой по пути. Но как водителю не хочется брать на борт кого попало, так и пассажиру боязно садиться неизвестно к кому.
