report lane changes in yards not feet
when distance is set to miles, small distances are reported in feet, yards is more commonly in use ( at least for significant distances of say 1000 feet (300!yards)) in uk

I have just tried waze and really liked it apart from using feet instead of yards. Not going use it until this is sorted as I an option is.
James Farrar commented
Add me to the list of people not using your app until this essential and simple change is made.

The requests to change the imperial measuring unit from feet to yards have been ongoing since at least 2016. It is now 2023, how difficult is it to do? Do you actually have a development team that are capable of making such a small enhancement?
It's pathetic that this STILL hasn't been done.

Not everyone lives in the USA
Stating distances to go in feet is very irritating. It has put me off an otherwise excellent application
Richard Ager commented
Please give option in settings of using yards instead of feet. Nobody in the UK uses feet for road distances.
Please do this ASAP
Peter English commented
It's my bugbear, too. I have a good idea what a distance is in yards; but not in feet. (Unless I do the mental arithmetic - not a good idea when driving and navigating.)
Kevin Morgan commented
I would like to use Waze, but I won't until this thing of using feet instead of yards is sorted...
Neill Mitchell commented
Came back to Waze again after 3 years to see if they have implemented yards instead of feet. It's the reason I stopped using it because it used to drive me crazy. Amazed to find that this serious shortcoming has still not been addressed. Large distances in feet mean nothing to UK users. The standard unit used here is yards. Why is this simple request still not been implemented? Ridiculous. Every other sat nav supports yards. Uninstalling. I'll try again in another 3 years.

I just started using Waze yesterday. I've had enough of it already after just one day. I found these forums while looking for the (surely it must be there but I just can't find it) option to sort my saved places alphabetically. It's looking a lot like the basic things which a huge number of people are asking for, are also things which would be so easy to implement (e.g feet / 3 = yards, there, that was easy Waze wasn't it). Yet these are the things that Waze refuses to implement. How hard is it to divide by 3? How hard it is to sort a list alphabetically? I think I'll switch to an alternative.

In the UK we do not measure driving distances in feet but yards and miles.
Ian Webb commented
Please. Add yards
Agreed - feet are useless units on UK roads
Alexandre Leprêtre commented
Miles and yards are the standard distances used on UK roads, satnavs and roadsigns. Feet aren't intuitive.
How hard would it be to have the option of Km or Miles and fractions of, for UK users .
Feet is used in the US.
They may be used to that but we in the UK are not

Feet as a reference to distance means nothing in the UK, Please include Yards as a reference.
We had the 100 yard race at school so we know what it looks like! We never referred to it as the 300 feet race!
Just tried Sygic which uses yards, so much easier to understand!
Provide miles and yards option for UK users.
I agree. Feet is weird they should change it to yards so that we can tell exactly how far until we have to turn!
Change feet to yards ! I am a professional driver and do not enjoy using feet as a measurement. Please change it to yards............
