A real-time weather overlay - live radar maps for weather conditions along a planned route
Why is a real-time weather overlay not available on any generally available GPS navigation app? This would allow us to see real time weather map data/weather conditions overlaid along our planned routes so we can decide whether to re-route, stop for a while, avoid hail/tornadic weather, etc. It seems that this should have been available along time ago. To me it would be a feature that I would pay for if necessary.
This would be such a useful improvement in any climate but very useful in areas where snow, ice, flooding,and poor drainage, etc. are likely to occur.

This would be my number 1 or 2 most wanted feature
You could make this an option to use. Those not wanting it could disable it, but I would LOVE this feature. I currently have to use a separate app and try to estimate where we are on the road. If bad weather is ahead I could choose to exit the road and get to a safe location rather than having to pull off on the side of the road during bad weather and possibly put us in harms way.
Please, please, please...make this feature available.
Being an OTR trucker, the ability see the weather in front of me real time is vital. As it is, I have to switch to a weather radar app then back to Waze. One would think that this feature would be top priority in a navigation app.
Agreed! Have had to combat strong winds over a bridge in the past and it would have been nice to have alerted drivers to prepare for it!
