Waze for Trucks
Trucks are almost 5% of all traffic in the US (1). But there isn't a great navigation app yet. Waze should create an option / app for truckers.
Editors can give in the following restrictions:
- Closed for trucks / RV's;
- Closed for vehicles longer than X meter / feet;
- Closed for vehicles wider than X meter / feet;
- Closed for vehicles higher than X meter / feet;
- Closed for vehicles with an axle load more than X tons;
- Closed for vehicles heavier than X tons;
- Closed for trucks with hazardous substances;
- Closed for vehicles with more than X axles.
Truckers give in the data of the truck and the max. speed (ETA).
This feature creates a whole new audience for Waze.
Thank you for your suggestion!
We are currently not planning on adding truck suited routing options.
Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram
But a lot of users are truck drivers and there is a high demand for the app to personalise for trucks
Agree that low clearance is needed. I currently use WAZE for basic travel but have to check other apps such as rvparky to ck for low bridges for my RV. I keep looking for an alternative. Hammer by Trucker Report may help.
One of the biggest concerns of an RVer is low clearance. Adding this feature would greatly help a quickly growing segment of the population. Please consider this for the safety of many of your users.

Is not useful only for truck, my car with roof boot, some time you cannot pass trough some tunnel with height limit at 2m...
I am a non Commercial driver. it will be good have the option to avoid the width Resection roads.
Height restrictions is a HUGE deal for Professional drivers, RVrs and "van lifers" I don't understand
Please add this option for Waze, I had to figure the other way around before. It took the time for me to figure out a different way around if that route works for my RV. This would be a huge help. Please add this feature to save time and avoid traffic congestion. Thanks so much!
Need height restriction.

Would love this as I'm new to RVing. Plus we cover a lot of ground.
Height, weight and size ! Make driver vehicle customizable!

PLEASE!! Waze NEEDS an RV/Trucker mod/app/option. My 12.5ft high, 31ft long Class A RV towing a 20ft enclosed trailer often can't go where the auto re-route sends you.
Please add restrictions for RVs. I use waze in my vehicle all time, but can't when I'm towing my RV.
Width and height of 3.5 ton trucks and other trucks

A professional HGV driver's height, weight and length restrictions incorporated into the WAZE would be a godsend !

Would LOVE to have this option for Waze. PLEASE add it!!! :-)
So wish I could setup the parameters for my travel trailer
We would be using this for RV driving. Need the height restrictions.
This app is most useful but it is a bit limited for trucks .To be able to setup for trucks would improve the usefulness emensly
In Mexico City we need the cargo vehicle option please, because in the primary circuit roads are forbbiden to drive inside (except metropolitan residents), so in the WME needs to place TBRs only for cargo vehicles (pickups and trucks).
I have just upgraded my car. As a result, I have had to ditch Waze as my satnav because my car is too wide to fit through some width restrictions here in the UK and I do not want a dent in it(!).
This is a big loss - I have used Waze continuously for about 4 years, and it has never missed a beat. But I simply cannot trust it now not to try to take me through the Rotherhithe Tunnel (and into other roads) - when I will not fit.
It would be a HUGE benefit to be able to tell it to avoid restrictions under 7ft. Sygic (Truck) can do it, but Waze is a much better app otherwise. Shame I'm stuck with Sygic now...
