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.
Ween you drive in a group you need one car to declare "follow me" and the others can be invited by the driver to follow him and see his location on the map to follow him, and also the route he took to get there. If they want to use the same route.
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

הרבה פעמים, כאשר קובעים להיפגש עם חברים, מכרים וכו' במקום מסויים, תמיד יהיו כאלה שיקדימו וכאלה ש... מה לעשות? יאחרו! אלה שמקדימים נוטים להציק לאלה שמאחרים בהודעות טקסט ושיחות טלפון בהם נשאל האדם המאחר: איפה אתה? מתי אתה מגיע? באיזה רחוב אתה נמצא? באיזו שעה תגיע? ע"מ למנוע את כל השאלות הללו, אני מציע פתרון פשוט:
שיתוף מסך הניווט של האדם ה"מאחר". איך לעשות את זה טכנית? זאת אשאיר לכם. אבל בגדול:בגוגל דוקס קיימת אפשרות לשתף אדם ספציפי בעריכת הקובץ ע"י מתן הרשאה. זה ממש פשוט, ובעיקר: יעיל!!!!
אשמח לפידבקים :-)
a. Display the cars in different colors, so they can track each other while driving to the destination.
b. If one car gets lost or pulls over the other car/s are alerted.
d. The passenger (not driver) will be able to text through Waze to the other car/s to communicate instead of using walkie talkies.
d. Waze can offer, during the trip, gas stations, road side attractions, and restaurants via icons on the road map.

Allow me to track family and friends (who share permission and/or Waze ID) so I can see how they are doing, especially on long journeys.

No thanks, not if google continues to demand a phone number "for verification" *cough* bs *cough*
Glympse is perfectly suited without harvesting my information
I don't share my mobile number easily. Google can promise whatever. The fruits of their philosophy renders claims comical at best.
My friends DON'T NEED ME TO VERIFY with google. They receive ZERO BENEFIT.

Glympse already does this well

Multi car drive sharing. While on trips with family in multiple cars, I would like to be able to track if one car gets stuck in traffic or lost.
I was following a fellow Waze user. Neither of us knew the address but he knew the destination by habit. I had to ride his rear. I thought we could use an option to link and follow another user. I could follow behind a mile and still make all the right turns via my Waze and his.

Oh damn.. you stole my idea haha good work! ;)
Vote for integrated support of Xmpp Texting, then export- or share to that
I belong to a car club for Honda S2000 we like to drive our cars and will plan a monthly drives. Waze could be modified to allow tracking of a route by the route organizer during the planning of the route. He should be able to modify the route during the planning. the route should be able to be saved and shared with other Waze users in the group. This type of App modification would allow the driver to pay attention to the road and not have to deal with written instructions to stay on route. This would also be a way to get more Waze users and I would think an upgrade I would be willing to pay for.I also think there are a lot of car and motorcycle clubs that would love a feature like this to keep their driving groups together.
I'm a member of a Search and Rescue team. Currently members have Garmin, Tom-Tom's and other GPS' to assemble at predetermined rally points. As one of the communications officers I'd like to set a private group with all our rally points per-entered and recommend members with smart phones use Waze, this will be easier to maintain general group related rally points, and save our member money and time having to enter them on multiple vehicle GPS devices.

Even better, use facebook / google+ for this where I can select with which facebook group or google+ circle to share.
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.
Have the possiblility to follow a friend using waze and sharing the road with me (helpfull when you tavel with several cars to the same location)
Having the possibility to send pre-define basic massage. (Need gaz, Need a pause,...)
A group of friends are heading on a trip. We'll be visiting multiple locations during the trip. It would be great if everybody had all of the addresses already in their phone and could just select them when they were heading to the next location. (If everybody has the app, we can also see where they are!)

The Facebook button is now missing when I share my drive.
