  1. Increase police warning distance

    Waze users are warned of speed traps or police presence only about 600 feet ahead of time. This is far too late of a warning. With a clear line of sight, law enforcement can detect speeders at 1-2 miles out.

    By the time the Waze warning pops up, you could have already been detected.

    This feature – while very well intentioned and thought out – is useless with so little warning.

  2. track buddy

    Ability to be buddies with other wazers, and track them. If they want to have a multiple car roadtrip, they would always be able to find eachother

  3. Time zone adjustment

    Waze should adjust ETA to the local time when destination is a different time zone. When you leave Phoenix for southwest CO, for example, the ETA should be in mountain time, not AZ time. Currently, the ETA only adjusts when your phone automatically adjusts as you cross the time zone. It would be nice to know drive time is 6 hours, but ETA is 7 hours due to time change.

    We plan to work on adjusting the ETA on the local destination if it is in a different time zone in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

  4. automotive

    Hi,
    when can we expect Waze be compatible on the Android Automotive OS (so not Android Auto, but Android Automotive as the new OS for the Polestar 2 car).
    thanks for you reply

  5. Lane closure reports made easy

    I'd like a report button that would indicate lane closures.

    Could press to report the beginning of the lane closure, then press again to report the end.

    Then you indicate whether it's the left, right, or center lane.

  7. Average speed camera zone

    When in an average speed camera enforced zone it would cool if the green progress bar turned red when my average speed exceeds the limit

  8. It would be great if School Zones were added.

    I gave votes to the others. I do understand there are time management issues. This would be a huge plus.

  9. Night Mode on all User Interface Elements

    When you're in Night Mode the map is, essentially, reversed in color; light things are dark, dark things are light. This is not true for any of the other user interface elements. Search, popups, reporting... all are very bright and very distracting. These interfaces should also be reversed, that is, dark grey backgrounds with light gray text.

  10. Time dependent Speed Limits

    We really need the ability to add time dependent Speed Limits for school zones or other times of the day where the maximum speed limit changes, this would not only help with navigation slow downs (which most school zones wouldn't affect too much anyway) but would also increase safety for drivers and pedestrians in the area.

    If we were able to set speed limits during specific times of the day it would mean a popup warning for a changed speed would mean users would be aware and slow down and hopefully prevent accidents from occurring in this speed sensitive zones.

  11. Temporary Speed Limits for construction

    Allow editors to set Temporary Speed limits, similar to a closing, that will time out to the default, road set limit, after the time period has lapsed. It would be able to be set for the same time period as the closure, if desired, or during events, if necessary.

  12. Toll roads

    When entering in a destination, please put the toll roads option there instead of in the settings. I am a driver in New York City. All day long, I would need to go into settings and check/uncheck toll roads. When I drive a passenger, of course, all the toll roads are taken, but when returning, I avoid as much as possible. Please change the tolls feature to somewhere when entering in the destination. Thank you

  13. Follow friend.

    Sometimes share one trip more cars (users). For example Business trip or holiday etc. it means two or more cars with the same destination. One of them knows WHERE to go (where is destination) and the others follow him. One car is the leader. In this case could be very useful to add feature called "Follow friend". In MENU where are Friends, add this feature (click on name of leading user and choose "Follow friend") and when the leading user accepts the request, he becomes as a "Moving destination" for user (users) who asked him. The other use of this…

  14. Multiple vehicles

    A quick way to toggle settings between two or more vehicles. When I drive my truck I use the expressways, I use alerts only, and diesel is preferred. When I ride my motorcycle I don't use expressways, I turn on navigation since my phone stays in my pocket, and premium gas is preferred. A way to save particular settings when toggling between private and motorcycle would be appreciated.

  15. Making clear weather conditions

    It may be useful to show the weather conditions with an appropriate icon instead of the yellow triangle.
    Furthermore, the user could add the temperature.

  18. Waze - Plan my day route scheduling

    A great addition to the Waze App would be to have it plan my entire day or something as simple as errands. Start by entering a start time and a list of addresses to visit (e.g. drop-off kids, grocery store, and other errands....getting me back home in time to pick-up the kids at school at the end of the school day), Waze could optimize my route and schedule based on traffic and ETA. It might even choose the most effective route by reordering the destinations/waypoints. Other applications are for small businesses to do route planning to save time and fuel.…

    We plan to work on having multiple stops on a planned drive in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

  19. When traveling across time zones, have the ETA show the correct time in the time zone you’re goi g to.

    I’m traveling across time zones. Can you make the ETA show the arrival time in the time zone I’m traveling to??

    We plan to work on showing the ETA with the correct time zone of your end destination in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

  20. Tracking in Tunnels

    When the GPS signal is lost in a tunnel, Waze sometimes locates your position with the phone network signal. This location can be nearby the tunnel or in a Town center. Sometimes it tries to recalculate the route
    .
    I suggest to the Waze team that inside tunnels, when the GPS signal is lost, the Navigator should keep giving indications based in the maximum speed in the tunnel (or last speed recorded).

    This could be very useful when you have exits in the Tunnels (for example M30 in Madrid) or the Exit is just after the end of the tunnel.
