choose my custom route!
Have you ever thought that the driver does every day the same way to go to work or home, so he already has his favorite ways? Have you ever thought about leaving the driver predefine these paths and when to consult the routes have a new area for "Custom Routes" and showing the conditions of transit and time for those 3 chosen paths? I would feel more comfortable in knowing how long it would take if I had chosen that MY way specifically. Thanks!
Here is a good news, an additional application can do it (in waiting it will be directly implemented) : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.uxiomatic.shortcutsforwaze
It would be nice to have the option to click on the map to choose a specific road to take on your route. I know that when you choose to look at the map to choose a route there are 3 options but it would be nice to be able to touch a street or highway that you would like to re-route or take on your route.
What if you could enter online and set some path alternatives from home to work? At the moment you leave, Waze will inform the ETA for each of them, and you choose.
כאשר אני יושב מול המחשב בבית או ברכב ורוצה לבחור וריאציה של הנתיבים המוצעים. אישית אני מעדיף זאת על ידי סימון מראש של הנתיב שאני מעוניין לעשות, ולקבל מייד משוב מה אורכו של הנתיב הנבחר, וכמה זמן יקח לבצע אותו.
מבחינת ממשק משתמש, כל מה שצריך זה לתת לי אפשרות לבחור כבישים מסויימים על ידי מגע חץ בהם. ולהשתמש באפליקציה הקיימת כדי לסמן נתיב נבחר על ידי המשתמש.
Function from my old navigation-device:
- locking of actually from waze routed track sections for the next 200m, 500m,1000m, ...
Only while actual navigation, because of traffic jam, road works, accident, demonstrations!
I love it to change my actual routing that way only the next n-meters without knowing which of the next cross streets are the best alternative route and anyone blind alley.
And I love it to know about the alternative route BEFORE I unknowlingly turn off the next street to give it a try, maybe a fail.

Yes, this. I sometimes drive from south of Boston to mid-Rhode Island and I'd like to enter my destination like 123 Main St via 18, 106, 24, 495, 295, post rd and have it use those roads (including realizing that the best way from 495 to 295 is 95S.
I would be really nice if Waze could implement a learn mode. After recommending the same route every day and seeing the user take some other route. Waze should be able to figure out that may be the user doesn't plan to use the route it is recommending and instead suggest the route the user is going to take anyway.

Quick Reroute with user input from main map
I would like to see a quick reroute option on the map area, lets say you are in traffic and you would like to reroute out of that area to get to your destination, currently I keep getting navigated to the same route or need to start driving and ignore the suggestion to turn around to get away from the traffic.
It would be nice if I could just click on the arrow (your car) in the navigation screen and drag right or left to let Waze know to reroute in the direction I would like to get away from the traffic in. Then it could reroute away from that area and not just tell me to turn around. This will make it easier to reroute with less interaction.
This came to me as a feature while waiting in traffic after a football game, none of the routes had me quickly leaving that area other than just picking a road and having it recalculate on it's own.
If I could just tell it the direction to reroute me ahead of time while in traffic and not wait for the loading that happens sometime it would be great. Would be a good feature when in a bumper to bumper area.
Maybe have a menu pop up when you touch the car and drag the direction you are leaving the traffic into that can prompt for things like, backroads, avoid road, route around next mile. Just a thought.
At enter a target i want to choice a waypoint. For example: target: street xxx at town xxx and over street yyy town yyyy
Feature request: let me create a custom route as I go, not necessarily the fastest or shortest. For some reason it's the route I use everyday, and waze will never 'learn it' as its currently implemented. Let me record my route and store it with a name under custom routes.
No need to share it, because its only useful for myself, but anyway waze could pick up nav statistics and users could submit reports as usual.
This would extend functionality and fill a gap that the app is lacking comparing to other products.
Pleaseeee....I would be forever greatful.
Great idea, please consider it a worthwhile candidate
Sometimes it's ok to cross a solid line to make a turn. It's not legal but cops are ok with it for motorcyclists only, not for cars. I wonder if waze can use my navigation records to calculate route with "exceptions".

Add the ability when putting in a destination to add a road or route you want to travel by. If you are going to NYC as a destination Waze client gives you 3 choices, but if you have a specific road you want to travel by you should be able to put that in.
Now you can simply add waypoints

The idea is to make possible the edition of the route by dragging it to where you want it (as seen on the desktop web version of google maps), which could, by addition, work as a multi-stop feature.
I would greatly like to see the option to "creat a route". I have a few destinations that every time I drive there waze takes me on a horrible route and still wont auto learn my routes. When going home waze takes me to the correct address but I cannot park on the street in front of my house. I have to turn on the street before and go around to the back where my driveway is. It should also get the option for when you arrive at a certain destination, you can save and title it as well a save the route driven both while using navigation and not.

Currently when you hold down your finger on the map, a bunch of options come up (add as destination, add as starting point, etc.) Add an "Add as waypoint" button.

As I've been unable to teach Waze the best route for my commute, I'd love to see this added.
I'm pasting the text from my forum post here, since it describes in detail how this feature could work and also adds the route naming capability:
I'd like the developers to consider allowing users to manually record (either by driving or using an online map interface) my preferred routes between common end points (i.e. my commute). Let me name the preferred routes myself. Then when evaluating routes for a commute, choose between the preferred routes if available.
Why? Because the dynamic thing isn't working for me. I'll drive a new route many times and it still won't be considered for subsequent drives, even after asking for alternative routes. I've toiled in the map editor for too long making changes to receive no benefit--it consistently sends me on crazy routes instead of choosing the direct path.
And, even if all of that worked, the auto-generated names for the routes that Waze comes up with are hard to interpret and I'd want the ability to name them too, if they were consistent. Like let me tell Waze at the end of a route what to name the route we just drove.
If this change were done, then it would override all of the error prone reliance on pristine maps, intelligent detection of repeated driving patterns, etc and just let me use Waze for what I want: the fastest commute every day.
