  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Save and later upload client data for areas with limited cell and/or Wi-Fi only users.

        The amount of data saved currently is insufficient to allow mapping of vast rural areas. Saving this data when storage is available and later uploading will speed the completion of your goals.

          This is already working, though not properly and all devices. We are working on improving waze behavior in areas where the connectivity is not good, however, you will still have to start a new waze session with a connection .

        • 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.

          • Allow declaring Toll Roads and the option to not navigate through them

            Waze wants to route me through a toll road every day and can't seem to find an alternate route until I actually drive it. I want to be able to avoid Toll roads, which means tolls roads need to be able to be declared in the editor.

            • 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.

              • Multi-stop route feature

                When you want to stop at several points along your route you should have the ability to set multiple destinations
