walking mode button

Have you thought about a walking mode button.So if you have waze on you don't get false data that traffic is at a stand still when you are walking.
Many thanks Andrew warren

        Walking mode would be great if you want to update map in your position. You have plenty of time then for correct URs.

        +1 Dzons - Use Google Maps for walking mode. Waze is for real-time traffic that obeys DRIVING rules. Keep it simple and uncluttered from unnecessary features.

        Why do you people need walking mode? Waze is for driving. If you need directions whilst walking use google maps.

        I’ve wanted to use walking mode often, after parking for my destination or just having to walk around a strange city. It would be great!

        Walking around Dublin yesterday, Waze directions to location brought us in the direction of one way traffic rather than shortest route. Please consider walking mode button. Thank you for a fantastic app!

        In London getting around between Tube Stations can be frustrating havin a walk mode on Waze would be really useful.

        I’m using a mobility scooter but waze only seem to do one for the roadways which would take me too long to get from A to B

        Would love this option, recently switch from tomtom go to waze, got 2 years of tom tom go free still out in voice desitnations or by store name is something tomtom fails to do, tough tomtomgo got walk mode ect its handy when road to your destination end by car bit continues by foot, specialy in store arears where cars are forbidden. Easy to get lost if your not well known in a city.

        Ofc other apps do the job but would be easier of you could use 1 prefered app instead of 50 apps

        Sure it will be great to be able to choose walking mode. It is really good to walk to the car's parking place!!!!

        I use waze all the time. I'd really like to use it in pedestrian mode,I'm really surprised it's not available??

        Waze is great navigator in driving. it would have been great if we could use it while walking.

        Obvious improvement. And if already engineered, too difficult to access. Where's the button that asks me to choose between "drive" and "walk"?

      • Vlado commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I wanted to switch my Waze to walking mode several times. But I did not find this option. So I decided finally to google. And found out it is not there.
        I can not believe it!!!
        Such a great app like Waze does not have walking mode? Why???
        Is it so difficult to add it? I am sure not.
        Please add it ASAP.

        One of thousands of users who need it.
        Thanks in advance.
