  3. "Location services" for waze to be on "while using" instead of "always"

    In your next update pls could you change "location services" for waze to be on "while using" instead of "always" as it is draining the battery. Apple suggested this will be one big saving on battery life.

  6. re-route based on upcoming traffic conditions / congestions

    While waze does show upcoming traffic condition on one's route it does not provide facility to automatically re-route the traveler around traffic congestion using surface streets or alternate highway/freeway.

    This is essential to optimizing waypoint ordering/priority:

    http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59223-client-how-can-we-improve-waze-on-your-phone-/suggestions/2360018-navigation-waypoints

    This ought be available in other-than a binary toggle (yes or no). While yes and no are suitable broad options, waze ought provider finer grained control of re-routing as it does now (faster or shorter). These should include

    (1) time windows

    (2) zones / areas

    (3) specific roads / highways / freeways

    (4) density of other Wazers

    (5) using either / both wazer…

  8. Autozoom depending from speed

    I like to have an autozoom depending from my travel speed that shows me a big area when driving fast and a detailed area when driving slow e.g. in the city.

  9. Add ability to report gas prices

    It would be nice if users could report gas prices... This would attract a LOT more wazers.

    I don't mind having to manually enter the data, but reporting it could be as simple as taking a pic of the price sign with your phone, and on the server side, it gets interpreted and organized into grade of gas and price.

    Wazers will then be able to search filtering out stations that have (or don't have) diesel, or if your vehicle requires higher octane, one will be able to filter out specific details to match their needs.

    favorite locations are now saved with your user data on the server.
    When installing a fresh version of waze (and not upgrading), you will get a message asking if you’d like to download favorites from the server.

    while we still need to improve this a bit (work on special scenarios that involve ramps and other special road types), the issue should be fixed. If you still notice problems with it, please writ to alpha@waze.com

  12. Share destination with anoter waser

    It coulb be interesting to add a "share destination" function. You send your destination to your friend and you could see how many km they have to do, when they will arrived etc.

    Sharing location through Waze is now available!

  13. navigation waypoints

    Only mapquest currently features navigation waypoints.

    On a journey from location_A to location_Z one might want to pre-plan gas fill up locations, or additional points of interest. These are waypoints, or places to stop along the way.

    Location_A to location_B to location_C ... to location_Z

    To accomplish this now in Waze is a bit tedious

    location_A to location_B
    location_B to location_C
    location_C to location_Z

    One ought be able to enter all the locations and either specify the order of the waypoints OR allow waze to optimize some- or all of the ordering of waypoints.

    To further facilitate waypoints Waze ought…

  14. Auto return to "Me on map"

    I want a setting in the client where you can choose to return to "Me on map" after 10, 20, 30, 45 or 60 seconds of user inactivity.

  15. Force Reroute Button

    Many times i can see that the freeway/higway I´m about to enter is slow moving, and waze wants to route me into that sometimes even if there is reported trafficjams/heavy traffic etc on that road. A button on screen or easy accesssible (poosibly instead of the bulldozer) to force an alternative route would _really_ help

    Available on version 2.2 and on. To reroute, click on the green bar (after starting the route).
    One of the options is to recalculate the route, i.e. force a reroute.

  16. Limit traffic alerts to same country/smaller area

    There's no point in showing alerts from 2000+ km away. Most people are only interested in alerts in their immediate area.

    You can now search by coordinates! You can use UTM to enter any pair of coordinates. Make sure to use a comma in between. For example, you can search for:
    52.02644,5.58166

    (This location in the Netherlands… but any other coordinates will work)

    Available on version 2.1 and onwards.

  20. Limit search to smaller area

    When I search I don't really want streets from other countries.

    Search is now limited by radius from current location. When the current location is unknown, it is based on last known location.
