ONE-CLICK to Send Alert
Thanks for creating such a great app. I use it whenever I drive.
One Waze feature that helps a lot is the alerts --- police, road hazard, etc.
I really appreciate other people giving out the alerts!
How could I not returning the favor to give others the same alerts when I see police and car stopping on the side?
I want to, but it is really cumbersome to do that---there are just TOO MANY clicks in order to send an alert. Driving at 75mile/per hour, the longer the time to do Waze alert, the more danger it becomes.
For example, in order to send road hazard:
- Click the orange circle
- Click Hazard circle
- Click Shoulder
- Click Vehicle stopped
- Click Send
It is 5 clicks, which not safe for me to do when driving at high speed on the highway.
Here is my daring suggesting---ONE CLICK alert.
While it is good that Wave has many alerts, but I am sure many people like myself are only reporting fraction of those alerts. Personally, I only interested 1) Police 2) Road Hazard on the Side 3) Road Hazard on the Road.
So, I am wondering if Wave can allow user to create 3 short-cuts to 3 frequently used, favorite alerts. And put those short-cuts onto the main screen’s “Good morning” area, which I felt is the perfect location, under-utilized area right now.
Once a alert short-cut is created and placed onto the main screen, user can just click that short-cut and an alert is sent; no need to click a send button; one click only.
To be a bit fancy, to prevent sending a wrong alert, clicking a short-cut will pop-up a 1-sec transient message box stating sending “xxx alert” (use a logo is better, because reading takes time), with a big cancel button on the button. If a user accidently hitting a wrong short-cut, he/she can cancel the alert within 1-sec.
Again, thank you for creating such a useful app for the drivers!
poster: just find out there is a voice command feature (thumb up). Ignore this suggestion. I will use voice command. Thanks again.
