Please, give us an option for caravan, camping-car and big véhicule, to have large and cool road !!!!
I have a big old caravan, ad sometimes, road are not ridding easy with it.
It's possible to have an option like motorway or not, for ridding cool and secure with big and large truck, caravan or camping-car?
Thanks for your feedback. At this time, this doesn't fit on our roadmap, but we'll keep it in mind for future product planning.

Poderiam incluir tipo de veículo tipo carro/caminhão/ moto e seus respectivos tempos de viagem. O mais interessante seria a de veículos pesados, mais utilizados.

Why are you shutting down all the good ideas while saying you'll consider adding more voices?
Did all the coders at waze quit except the guy working on voices?

Ability to add customised vehicles with limited top speed in order to have travel time to destination calculated correctly on that basis rather than the allowable top speeds along the route. Example: Travel time for a passenger car would be based on the allowable 50 km/h on urban streets and 130 km/h on motorways. However, when travelling with a caravan or a truck, one would perhaps want to limit his speed to 80km/h on motorways. Thus, 50 km/h would apply for all urban streets, but anything above 80 km/h would be limited to 80 km/h, which will result in a correct time to destination / arrival time.
Bonjour, j'utilise beaucoup Waze mais je tracte une caravane. Serait-il possible de renseigner "voiture avec caravane" dans les informations du véhicule pour que le choix de l'itinéraire prenne en compte le gabarit de la voiture avec sa caravane. Ça me serait d'autant plus utile que je voyage aussi à l'étranger. Merci.

Today many travel with bigger motorhomes / Gooseneck Trailers etc. Not a category for big trucks or lorrys, but well over 3.5 ton combination. There is many restricted bridges / roads to max 3.5 ton. Waze keep on telling me to follow a road after I've passed a sign " 3.5 ton max total weight " Couldn't there be a setting option in vehicle to car with boat trailer, caravan or bigger motorhome for to avoid this very annoying problem. Google map have the same issue, be first with this future and get all bigger combo users over . Kind Regards Peter
Add routes that trucks of certain length, weight and height can go on. As trucks can’t drive on every road that a car can, with certain roads or bridges and tunnels having restrictions. It’ll allow for less congestion and accidents happening when the truck is able to go a more desirable route
I'm a truck driver, and there's a lot of roads I simply can't take in my truck. It would be excellent to have a vehicle type for Large Vehicles that avoids unsuitable roads.
This idea would require a lot of implementation and a lot of users adding data to the map. Map data required would be:
- Load / weight limits: Ability to mark a road as an unsuitable route for vehicles over a certain weight (i.e. 10 ton load limit, as many roads in my area are signposted) unless that road MUST be driven to reach the destination. This could also be used to set bridge load limits.
- Length limits: Some roads in my area are restricted to vehicles under a certain length (i.e. vehicles under 10m only) and cannot be driven on in larger vehicles, unless that road is unavoidable to reach the destination.
- Height limits: There are many low bridges in my area, and the ability to mark a place on a road as low clearance (i.e. 3.4m ) which must NOT be passed by a vehicle of greater height, would be excellent.
The vehicle selector would also need a new vehicle added. The "Large vehicle" selection would ideally have parameters you can set, these would be:
- Speed limit
The first three items would be used to avoid roads with lower weight, length, or height limits than the vehicle (i.e. an 8 ton truck would still be allowed on a 10 ton limited road but a 16 ton truck would be given a different route)
The fourth item would be used to adjust ETAs and modify the speed limit display. This would ideally be customisable; In my country, vehicles over 4.5 ton are limited to 100km/h, with some larger trucks limited to 90. Cranes are generally limited to 80.
Additionally, rest areas could be marked with length or weight limits (Or simply marked "Truck Friendly" or "Truck Parking Available" to allow truck, caravan and RV drivers to plan suitable rest stops.
The addition of Heavy Vehicle Inspection Stations (both permanent and temporary - reportable) would be beneficial, but not essential.
The implementation of the vehicle type would in theory be fairly easy; the difficult and time consuming part will be gathering the user data for length, height and weight limits. I would suggest marking this feature as Beta until substantial data has been added by users.
Even in Beta this would be useful: A route that avoids some unsuitable roads is still better than a route that doesn't avoid any unsuitable roads.
I'm a heavy vehicle driver, and having a GPS that automatically avoids roads with weight limits, length limits etc. would be absolutely incredible.
Currently, Waze only has regular cars, taxis, and motorcycles, but we would like to add large vehicles.
Large vehicles are slow and slow, causing traffic jams. Waze reflects information about large vehicles, allowing users to avoid roads where there are many large vehicles. This is expected to ease traffic congestion and shorten travel time for users.
I hope this reaches the right persons . Waze is a wonderful application and my go to maps for driving my car. But I believe whole heartedly this could be the BEST map out if it was also trucker friendly. With an option to select the type of vehicle ( such as 18 wheeler ) to adjust to the routes provided. Typical trucker gps are unreliable , hundreds of $ and do not provide up to date traffic info like Waze does for non semi drivers . If there was a option to select a category of semi truck with sub sections to select weight , length and height of said tractor trailer I could almost guarantee Waze would take over not only the typical car gps navigations but the trucker community as well. I hope this reaches you well and this idea is input into action . Best regards .

Id love this idea. I have a moped that maxes out at 40mph downhill. I'd love to be able to find routes that I can go within that speed.

Please provide RV Safe routes and allow us to choose “RV” as a selection choice under “vehicle Choice”!
I would be happy if there was an option to create another Car Profile.
Car with trailer 80 km/h
Car with trailer 100 km/h
or to specify a maximum km/h.
Advantage would be that then the calculation of the planned arrival time would be better.
Thanks and greetings
Ich würde mich freuen, wenn es eine Option gäbe ein weiteres Auto Profil anzulegen.
Auto mit Anhänger 80 km/h
Auto mit Anhänger 100 km/h
oder eine maximale km/h anzugeben.
Vorteil wäre, das dann die Berechnung der geplanten Ankunftszeit besser stimmen würde.
Danke und Grüße
This would plan routes that won’t take you in tight turns or short cuts that are through subdivisions or city centers

Our street ,South Border Rd,Winchester,Ma ,has a no truck sign posted at both ends yet wake sends you down the street. How do you stop that?
Brian Creelman commented
Option to set maximum speed of vehicle for better trip planning!!
Gemma Foulds commented
Be able to specify your vehicle specifications so that you can see of the route is suitable, especially for motorhomes and caravans. Also bridge heights would be helpful
Would love to see Waze add RV routes for suggestions for best towing routes. Wider roads or avoiding congestion and low bridges.

Por favor, coloca opção para rota para caminhão aqui no brasil vai ajudar muito nós caminhoneiro brasileiro
De optie om bepaalde precentages qua stijlheid van de wegen te vermijden. Dit is een ideale optie voor vrachtwagens, auto's met aanhangers/trailers/caravans.
Bijvoorbeeld 2 opties; stijging tot 5% / stijging tot 10%. Wanneer je dit aanvinkt, dan wordt je omgeleid bij deze wegen.
