Waze Suggestion Box

Welcome! Thanks for your interest in improving Waze.

There’s power in numbers! Search through existing suggestions before adding new ones.

  • If you agree with a suggestion, vote to show your support and use the comment section to add to the idea.
  • When beginning a new suggestion, be sure to select a category so it can be sent to the right team.

This forum is intended for user feedback and ideas. If you have an issue which needs support, visit our help center.

Use this forum to vote on and add ideas to improve Waze.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      was not uploaded on 2.2, but still under consideration for the next version.

    • New Report options

      Please add following option for reporting:

      Hazard -> Weather -> Ice On Road - REALLY important in my country

      Hazard -> Weather -> Flooded Road - also REALLY important

      Hazard -> On road -> Road Closed ahead - this could be abused, so should be discussed in function

      Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Curve - most are marked by road signs but driver could choose to get extra warning from Waze! for example it would really help when visibility is poor!!

      Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Intersection - maybe Black Point (a point where a lot of accidents…

          • Add a traffic bar to map

            Have a "Traffic Bar" that appear in the routes screen overlayed on the main map.
            add a car to the bar that moves along with your journeys completion.
            So when you are 85 percent home, the car has moved 85 percent up the bar.

            Also when the Bar-Car (Maybe we should think of a better name) gets near an event an audible alert gets triggered, like when you near a Cop it could say “Oh cock, its the Rozzers!” Or just “Police reported ahead”) Or when you are near a obstacle on road you could be warned – e.g. “Johnny…

            • Waze response to suggestions

              There are currently 31 suggestions with more than 500 votes.
              Only 11 have an answer from Waze and some of those have been in the suggestion box since the year 2010.

              Can Waze show more involvement with the community suggestions by trying to respond to all suggestions that reach 500-1000 (higher?) suggestions?

              "No" or "Not planned" is an acceptable answer as it is BETTER than no answer at all.

              Thank you

              • Waze API

                Unsure in which forum this falls, but the idea is to have an API which developers could use to use Waze information on their websites or apps.

                • Search for wazer / share / navigate

                  It would be great to have possibility to search for a wazer using its pseudo...
                  We can imagine to ping it, locate it and navigate to it !
                  We can also imagine a new entry in setting like "Permit my location on ping" on/off (so we can preserve personnal life).
