  2. Let users add speed camera locations

    I noticed with the newest update that you omitted letting users update red light/ speed camera locations from the app .. not sure- why but I’d like to petition you to please add it back ..... we here in NYC are getting bombarded with cameras that have nothing to do with driving safe ( not near schools - hospitals etc) they are just another way for this city to take money from its hard working overtaxed citizens..

  3. Indicate walking distance.

    When near destination the client could calculate walking distance to the destination (by navigation through walking trails and considering all segments as two way street [but not highways..])
    This way I can choose to park the car and walk 50m instead of driving 300m to go around... and find no parking spot!

  4. Using the smartphone's front camera for alert about driver's tiredness

    In Android there is a feature named "smart stay" which allows the smartphone to recognize, using the front camera, if the user is watching the screen (in order to turn off the screen when not in use) - see

    http://www.androidcentral.com/how-use-smart-stay-galaxy-s3

    I wonder whether it would be possible to create a similar function in Waze, that would recognize (by visually recognizing when the eyes close for longer than a fraction of second) and alert if the driver falls asleep. If this is possible (even partially), it can save lives.

  5. Toll roads

    If user could use settings to set something like "use toll roads if it shortens the time on the road for at least XX minutes" or "use toll road if fuel economy if more then $XX". Waze gives us multiple routs from A to B, sometimes it is better to use toll road, sometimes it cuts only about 5-6 minutes from the trip (or less) - still not the reason to use toll road, too expensive for this outcome. But sometimes toll road is way better, so we don't want to forbid waze to suggest us toll-roads. I think you…

  6. App radio One Compatibility

    Please update Waze to be compatible with Pioneer AppRadio One car stereos. This was one feature I really wanted and thought I'd be getting with my new car deck, I was disappointed to see it was only compatible with older versions.

  7. Ok Waze

    Bring back the ‘OK Waze’ voice search.

    This was an extremely useful feature to enter a new destination whilst driving. Unsure why it was discontinued. Now you have to touch your device to enter a destination.

  8. Premium Option - I would rather pay than see the annoying ads pop up

    The ads are annoying. I don't like having local businesses pop up on my screen when my attention should not be diverted away from the road more than it should. I would much rather pay a premium for the service to be able to opt out of the ads.

  9. Waze augmented reality option

    Most devices are mounted on a windscreen mount in the car, with a camera facing forward.

    Maybe add an Augmented Reality option (like 2D and 3D view), so you see the routing overlayed over camera data. I got this idea from another driving app: iOnRoad. My first thought was "It would be awesome if waze had this!!"

    Please make it happen!!

  10. Waze "screen mirroring" capability

    Greetings, I own an iPhone 4S and I have also a 7" screen on my car. I also have the genuine Apple RCA cable, which I use to plug the iPhone into the RCA jack of my screen to watch videoclips.

    I was thinking, it would be AMAZING if Waze app could recognize when the cable is conected into the iPhone and asks if I want to mirror the ap on the conected screen. Waze GPS system is way better than my car's, and if it could be shown in the car's 7" screen would be certanily awesome. I wouldn't…

  12. Android Auto app without head unit

    Please update Android auto functionality to include those of use just using the Android auto app on our phones and not through a vehicle head unit. I would love to finally be able to use Android auto, as I have been waiting for Waze to be supported, but I don't have an Android auto head unit.

  13. Problem with new version. Please, please, please...

    I own an AppRadio car stereo, which worked perfectly with Waze on my iPhone until last week when I updated Waze (now, two versions ago). Now, some Navigation lists won't not scroll on my AppRadio touchscreen (ie. I can no longer touch-&-drag 1) my Recents list on the main "Navigate" screen, 2) my "Favorites" list, and 3) any "Search results" list after I pick a Category. All other touch functions work (as far as I know), and I am still able to touch-&-drag through the "Categories" list itself (for some reason).

    Please, please, please revert to the old scrolling code…

  14. Disable irrelevant ads POI

    I understand ads are the most important thing in your business model, but wouldn't it be better to have targeted ads?

    Please allow us to disable irrelevant ads. I'm sick of seeing fast food POIs. I won't go, ever! Give me fancy restaurants instead!

  15. replace top bar with reports buttons

    The top bar displays some information which is useless for navigation. Maybe it would be better to replace these with buttons for reporting issues. Make it bigger, too, so those buttons can be pressed easily.

  16. At this time is there any way you could link to stores to find out who has water, bread and toilet paper available

    Is there any way you could link with major food stores and we could be updated with what ones closest to us has water, bread formula and toilet paper? Possibly how much they have in stock?

  18. He exits the stall in the restroom, never stops to wash his hands! Yuuch!

    He exits the stall in the restroom, never stops to wash his hands! You must now use the same restroom door handle...YUUCH! WAZE is the perfect format to rate restaurant restrooms as follows.

    A. Door opens outward. Paper towels are available.
    B. Door opens inward. Paper towels are available.
    C. Door opens inward. No paper towels available.
    D. Door opens inward, No paper towels. Filthy mess.

    I will not eat in C or D establishments. I check the restroom first and then make a decision. Every person I have talked with likes this idea.

    Good Health makes sense....this restaurant rating…
