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.
We plan to work on Follow a friend feature in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

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
Wondering about creating a feature on Waze for Purim to make delivering of shalach manos packages easier. We find that it is almost impossible to deliver to our kids friends as they are also always delivering. Short of parking next to a teachers house where everyone delivers too, or constantly calling/texting to see where en route people are, in the end most packages end up being left on the doorsteps. Wondering if Waze could add a city specific feature where people could upload the names of people they want to deliver to and then if the people are also using this feature, they could see where each other is so meet en route to exchange packages.
When you drive somewhere with multiple cars it would be useful if you could link multiple waze clients. Make one of the clients route leader so when waze proposes a detour to avoid traffic the route is synced to the other devices in the group. So you can stay together on a long drive. You could call it some sort of navigation convoi
Works same as pin but pin is moving.
This is an obvious feature, has it been added?

If I have friends in Waze I would like to click on them and see exactly where they are. This should be optional and friends need to approve each other and it should only be used when both have their app on.
Function to turn it off for a period of time should be a good idea maybe.
Today AFAIK I can only see that they are driving unless they share their route with me.
Gostaria de Poder Seguir um amigo (com aprovação DELE, claro!) Isto É seria interessante Pará PESSOAS Que viajem em Mais de um carro e SOMENTE UM SABE Os Melhores Caminhos.
MUITOS VAO Dizer Que basta Colocar oMESMO destino mas Já passei POR Situações Onde Uma pessoa acost Que ESTÁUmada uma Dirigir em hum Conhece Mais locais Que o Waze e POR MUITAS vezes acabamos POR NÃO conSeguirAvistar Mais o Seu Guia e NÃO sabre Pará Onde Virou. Se o Waze tivesseUmaManeira de Mostrar o Caminho Desta pessoa pra mim Eu Não precisaria Ficar "colado" na Traseira DELE e me preocupando em NÃO Perde-lo de vista. Quem passa POR ISSO SABE O Que Estou dizendo!
Follow me button for a friend who doesn't know the way. You have to activate it and friend has to push 'OK'

I was also going to add this as an idea, after having a road trip with my friends. suggest to also add a push-to-talk button in exchange to typing messages and emergency button in case of car broken down, flat tire, etc

We've all been asked to follow someone before. Suddenly, the trailing car gets stuck at a red light. Now you are panicking to find your friend.
Waze should introduce a Follow Me SMS request feature. Lead car will send the follow-me request via Waze App. This will increase the Waze adoption and social media connections.
I was going to add this as an idea. I think it would be really good for those in convoy. You could add a set of messages you could send to those in convoy such as 'stop at next gas', 'i have broken down'.....

Muitos vão dizer que basta colocar o mesmo destino mas já passei por situações onde uma pessoa que está acostumada a dirigir em um local conhece mais que o Waze e por muitas vezes acabamos por não conseguir avistar mais seu guia e não saber para onde virou. Se o Waze tivesse uma maneira de mostrar o caminho desta pessoa pra mim eu não precisaria ficar "colado" na traseira dele e me preocupando em não perde-lo de vista. Quem passa por isso sabe o que estou dizendo!
Is there a way to be able to make a route (on my computer) then post or list it to other people I am in a Car Club with (Porsche Club of America) so that we can all see and follow the same route in real time.
PS love Waze

Oh damn.. you stole my idea haha good work! ;)
Often travel in convoy going to the butt and Ben with family.... Would be useful knowing seeing each of there locations on screen - without using Facebook

Please add feature to display your location on the map to as close to real time as possible for situations like driving with friends. It could be limited to only increasing the update frequency to people you are friends with on waze to save resources. You could also prompt to turn it on when navigating to the same place as friends and prompt to turn off again when reaching destination. This feature would integrate really well. Would make following and leading people a much more enjoyable experience.

Create a "Follow Me" feature that sets your location as the destination for another waze user. If you want a fellow waze user to follow you, send them a "Follow Me" request. If they accept, their destination is set as your location and their route updates dynamically as your location changes. Way cool! - AP
