      • "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.

            • 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:

              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

                  • 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.

                            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.

                            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.

                                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.

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

                                      The voice navigation is extremely loud... definitely need the ability to balance it with my music.

                                          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.

                                        • 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.
