  1. Mirror link support!

    Most newer vehicles are coming from the factory with mirrorlink, support for mirrorlink would alow me to use waze with my factory touch screen. Much like the pioneer support. Having this as I'm sure for others would allow us to use waze all the time!

  2. Reminder: time to take a break!

    We suggest introducing notifications that would remind drivers to take a 10 minute break when they have driven for 2 hours non-stop, and after a 4 hour drive would suggest taking a 20 minute power nap.

    Research by the Latvian Road Traffic Safety Directorate shows that 11,7% of drivers are at high risk of falling asleep, and 1/3 of all drivers have experienced falling asleep at the wheel for a second in the last year.

    By reminding drivers how important it is to take breaks, Waze can help prevent tragic accidents and save lives.

  3. walking mode button

    Have you thought about a walking mode button.So if you have waze on you don't get false data that traffic is at a stand still when you are walking.

  4. waze for windows phone 10

    Waze was originally build by an Israeli startup and I know you paid approximately $ 3 Billion to buy the App, before the App was bought the app had a great windows phone app updates, I understand windows phone is a small community of users as compared to your monopolized market share of so called ANDROID. however why are you so scared to release new versions on Windows phone platform? you already have beaten Microsoft and you win but show some courtesy to the waze fans who use windows phone OS and they also deserve an latest version. you don't…

  5. police: trailing/leading (in motion vs stationary)

    Reports of stationary police are nice, but reporting highway patrol on the prowl with that feature is untenable.

    Please consider a feature to report actively pacing highway patrol with modifier for leading (ahead of officer), or trailing (behind officer).

    There should be an option to anonymize the report should one be traveling WITH- or accelerating AWAY from- the highway patrol at speeds exceeding posted limits.

  6. Please offer an ad-free version of Waze.

    I'm pretty sick of seeing Taco Bells, Ramada Inns, and Smart Water pop up on my map. I'd pay up to $5 for a version of Waze without advertisements.

  7. 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.

    We are aware the status of “In the works” could be misleading. This is an old suggestion and this status is old as well. For now this is not a priority yet so we are changing the status to avoid confusion. We will discuss that internally again and hope to bring better priority ASAP.

  8. Auto Shutdown at Destination

    When arriving at your destination have Waze prompt an Auto-Shutdown with a 10 second countdown. I always shutdown my Waze when I arrive and instead of having to click menu and then shutdown, why not have Waze offer to do it automatically. This will also save battery if people forget.

  10. Truck route option

    I use Waze everyday both on my commute to work and once I'm working (driving a semi around Chicagoland and all burbs within 50 miles or so). It would be nice to have an option to navigate truck routes when needed but then shut it off for when I'm in my car. MANY streets don't allow trucks due to weight or low overpasses, etc. Just a thought to help fellow truckers avoid getting in a bind! Maybe even reporting ability to post height/weight restrictions on certain roads...

  12. Avoid parkway feature

    Driving a commercial vehicle we are not allowed to go on parkways. A conventional GPS allows you to "avoid part of route" I want to be able to go on all other highways just not parkways. When it gives you a route, you should be able to avoid parkways where all truckers cannot use either

  14. Make waze tolerant of intermittent network connectivity

    Waze relies on a network connection when in use. Many areas I drive in have poor or intermittent network connectivity. Please make the Waze client more tolerant of poor network connections by caching more data of the surrounding map and allow journey data (including new roads) to be cached on the client and uploaded at a later time. Not all areas can rely on good 3G/UMTS network connectivity

  15. Allow the ability to specify the location of a report.

    When reporting an issue, crash, traffic jam, fire, Police activity, the system only gives you the option to report on the road you are on. So for example, if you are at an interchange where you can see the activity on a highway or interstate, but you are not on that road, you can't actually report it properly. Maybe it can be set up that you make a report, and like in google maps, you have a pin dropped on the map that you can move to the correct location, if where you are is not the location of the…

  17. Waze for Trucks

    Trucks are almost 5% of all traffic in the US (1). But there isn't a great navigation app yet. Waze should create an option / app for truckers.
    Editors can give in the following restrictions:
    - Closed for trucks / RV's;
    - Closed for vehicles longer than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles wider than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles higher than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles with an axle load more than X tons;
    - Closed for vehicles heavier than X tons;
    - Closed for trucks with hazardous substances;
    - Closed…

    You can use these for the length of the promotion. When the promotion ends, your voice will reset to the default and the voice will no longer appear in the Sound menu.

    We hope that you enjoyed the voice while it was available and can’t wait to share more exciting voices to come!
