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
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.

Definitely. Please add!
What Andrew said. How do I get to walking mode with your program?
Waze had in the past in the symbian operating system Walking mode
I recommend to add it to Android version
When near destination the client could calculate walking distance to the destination (by navigation through walking trails and considering all segments as two way street [but not highways..])
This way I can choose to park the car and walk 50m instead of driving 300m to go around... and find no parking spot!

When will we hace a qalking mode?
I actually do like this idea. However, I do see some concerns, such as creating walkways, which will make the maps look congested. I can see some benefits to this though. I would suggest the following for when Walk mode is on:
1) Tracking and speed would be disabled so no false positives are reported. GPS will still work.
2) Walkways and such would not be added to the map.
3) Navigation would be disabled.
4) Reporting in Walking mode would still be active. (Just because you are walking doesn't mean you can't notify other users of incidents) Considering you are walking at a slower speed than if you were driving, this may help pin-point those reports more accurately.
If you are walking, just put it to SLEEP

Check the ones that I created and voted to make good improvements.
I already tought on this before, but now I am writing down my ideas... And I just saw one already created. Hope we make this happen.
I use sometimes when I walk after park my car and it's annoying because it keeps telling you as you would be a car. Lol
This is stupid, Waze is for COMMUTING in a CAR. If you commute by walking, why the hell do you need to know the traffic and/or be rerouted around congestion?
Localizaçao modo pesso, a pé
I would love to have a walking or tourist mode option, where i could enter specific locations, restaurants, museums, trains or subways, etc and have them displayed on a city map as I transverse the city either by foot or on the subway. An option could be provided whereby one could prepare the locations of interest and upload them to the phone app.
Just came back from Paris and something like that would have been really helpful.

I go to Google maps when I need walking directions to my car, and then I switch to Waze, which isn't ideal, a walking mode would be wonderful and will probably open business opportunities for you.
I second Keith's comment.
Keith Williams commented
If you do add this feature, you will have to add walways that go where cars cant. I feel that this would clutter the maps. I VOTE THAT A DIFFERENT APP IS CREATED FOR WALING AND BIKING. We have what are called greenbelts in my city. You can go almost anywhere on these, but motor vehicles aren't allowed. These are in other places as well. It's a great idea, but, even Garmin doesnt provide those special walkways on their walking feature. Waze could top the industry with that.

It would be pretty useful to add the ability to zoom a location like a mall, theme park, convention hall where wazers that are your friends can find you by turning on WAZE and walking towards that person. dont think you would even need a map of the location just walking distance from one wazer phone to the other. could be useful?

When I walk to my car, I start waze, because getting GPS lock needs some time. So in that time I may cause some false traffic alert. So yes, walk mode please
