Sometimes share one trip more cars (users). For example Business trip or holiday etc. it means two or more cars with the same destination. One of them knows WHERE to go (where is destination) and the others follow him. One car is the leader. In this case could be very useful to add feature called "Follow friend". In MENU where are Friends, add this feature (click on name of leading user and choose "Follow friend") and when the leading user accepts the request, he becomes as a "Moving destination" for user (users) who asked him. The other use of this feature is "Follow ME" when leading user invites friend (friends) to follow him. When friend(s) accept it, they can follow him.
Please note we're changing the status of this suggestion to Not right now, since we finalized our plans for 2023 and this idea won't be implemented this year. We hope to have it included in our plans for later years and will keep you posted.

Caravan or convoy mode
Allows groups of wazers that are friends that are going to the Same place to have group directions and share group information
See the slowest convoy member (the slowpoke)
Allow for group messaging
Alerts when convoy members join the convoy or get off the route or stop for gas

Indeed, a Convoy or Roadtrip mode for when you have a group of cars all on the same trip(multi family vacations), there should be a Leader or Route controller. This is the person who can invite others and alter the route being taken. The people invited should only be able to view the route but not alter it. Also they should be able to suggest a stop or send a quick notice when a pit stop is needed. There should also be an alert for the Leader if someone drops too far back ( distance set by the route leader).
שתי הצעות: הצעה ראשונה היא שיתוף נסיעה לאותו יעד כמה חברים ואפשרות לראות את מוביל הדרך על גבי המפה כך שאם הוא עצר להתרעננות כולם יוכלו לראות ולעצור באותו מקום ומבלי צורך להודיע אחד לשני בוואצ או בשיחה. הצעה שניה היא אפשרות לבנות מסלול נסיעה אישי כך לדוגמא אם אני נוסע לאילת האפליקציה מציעה כניסה לכביש 6 בתשלום אך אני מעדיף חצי דרך לנסוע רגיל כי אני יוצא מוקדם בבוקר ולהשתלב אחכ בחצי הדרך לכביש האגרה ולא מההתחלה שלו שאז זה יקר מדי עבורי. צריכה להיות אפשרות שאבחר על גבי המפה מס כבישים בהם אני בוחר לנסוע.
It would be great to be able to invite friends using a code to a convoy - to be able to have the same destination and see where each other are along the route - maybe even their speed too? Let me know if anyone else likes this idea but would be cool.
Life360 is great for this. Create a circle of friends or family and you can all find each other in real time.

This is great, i really need this.

It would be super cool, when a group of friends are going to a trip, to share the destination and to be able to track on the same map where each one of them and gets an estimation for how long is it going for him to arrive

Já pensaram em subir uma feature para o usuário seguir outro usuário pelo GPS? Estamos seguindo nossos primos aqui na cidade deles e isso fez falta
Pouvoir passer en mode convoi pour partager un même itinéraire entre plusieurs véhicules, se proposer des pauses à un endroit donné, proposer des changements d’itinéraires, et retrouver les autres véhicules du convoi sur la carte quand quelqu’un se perds
You should be able to link your Waze with someone else’s, this way if you’re driving somewhere in different cars you can see how behind/ahead of you they are.
I think its a grate idea.. sometimes my parents follow me with their car and i lose them.. than i need to stop somewhere in a dangerous roads.. and that could be very helpfull
Sometimes when you drive with friends in different cars you follow the car as a convoy of vehicles. There are times you lose them because you are stucked behind at a traffic red light and you lose the car from your sight... that causes many dangerous situations when you trying to catch him up by driving fast or drive through orange traffic light. Sometimes in long ways its very stressful situation. I suggest to make a "follow me" option that will mark the car you want to follow and wherever you are your destination is where the car at. Think its a really good idea that could save lives , please consider it !

Waze be able to share your path to another user just for safety. If this path changes it sends a warning to other user as potential Kidnapping.

Em situações em que grupos de amigos vão viajar porém em carro separados, poderia haver uma opção de cada carro (1 usuário do waze em cada carro) pudesse se conectar com os outros e mostrar o mesmo grupo em todos os celulares conectados entre si! Assim poderíamos ver onde o outro carro está, se está na frente, atrás, se devemos ir mais devagar para esperar o colega. Evita que seja necessário fazer ligações ou mandar mensagem
Option similar to the app JoinR that people can be invited to a group and you are able to view location of everyone in group with ability to turn on and off. This is verify useful when traveling in groups such as car rallies to keep groups together. With option to add start and stop destinations with user option to request stops in between. Look at JoinR app for examples. Thanks

When going on a trip with a group of people and two or more cars are needed, usually there is one car that stays in the front, which the other cars follow. This car could set its destination on Waze as normal, but the others that follow it would have a "Follow me" function that allows them to set on the map the 1st car as the "Destination". This "destination" will always show the current location of the "front car". This way, even in crossroads, intersections and such, the other cars will know if the 1st car has turned left or right etc. without having to follow it visually on the road up to that specific point.
ניווט של כמה כלי רכב בבת אחת כגון טיול קבוצתי המחולק בין כמה רכבים יש את מי שמוביל שהוא משתף את עצמו לחברים והוויז של המשתתפים יסע רגיל כמו וויז לפרטי ואם הוא ישנה מסלול כם אצלם ישתנה כלומר בדיוק מה שמופיע אצלו יופיע אצל כולם
An option that can share a calculated route to a list of identified friends also using Waze, including detours taken, stops etc. This would be useful for groups of riders where one has the 'master' route and can send it to others on the same ride, so if they get lost/stopped behind they can follow the route to the next meeting point, even if the leader had to take a detour (planned route/stopping points not available). If it could update each of the riders in the group with their location to the others that woudl be swell

Would be an amazing helpful add-on to this app if we could get this done cause it would help many many car meets and cruises all around everywhere! 💙
