Rest Stop information
Could you either add rest stops, or allow us to report rest stops, as well as distance to the next one as reported/displayed?
Do eeeet plz waze

I'd like WAZE to have the option to display how far it is to the next rest stop so I know if I need to get off at the next exit and go to a gas station or go on to the nearest rest area. Going to a rest area always seems so much faster and easier.
Sometimes I'm driving a motor home and a rest area is just much easier to navigate than some gas stations or fast food restaurants.
So I'm curious as to why you have a Uservoice Forum but you don't seem to act on suggestions?
This was suggested almost eight years ago and still hasn't been integrated into the app.
This would be great!
also with the current pandemic local stores and restaurants are closed to customers who want to come, so when traveling sometimes the rest stop is the only place you can use a restroom

This would be great, having a standalone rest stop category with facility options (toilets, showers, undercover, etc) as well as any restrictions (truck only, car only, etc) could then be combined with an in app option to "Find nears rest stop, include X feature" or have an on screen indicator that shows the rest stop and its features on map.
Next to finding where to go ... finding somewhere to stop along the way can be equally important at times.

Waze should have this!!!
Depending on the country, doesn't have to be a fully-blown service area. On the German Autobahns, there are service areas or the so called parking areas which are just a place to pull over, sometimes with toilet, sometimes with nothing.
So please show something like:
Shell Service Area (Burger King) ---- 7m
Parking (WC) -----14 m
Parking ------ 25 m
BP service Area ---- 35 m
Maybe also if the rest stop is closed.
Very important in Aus with long distances especially as councils have provided some great ones
Please add when you are older you will find out fast when up need one. Sometimes we HAVE to stop beside the road just to relive.

Agree. Also, allow Wazers to report whether or not a Rest Stop is Open or Closed. Other Wazers... please vote this one up and share on your social networks!
I came to ask the same question and stumbled upon this. My family travels A LOT and we're constantly looking for rest areas because someone's always gotta go.

I agree rest stops should be added to the maps. Invaluable for those of us driving long trips - would need the ability to mark them as closed, since many states are closing them for budget reasons.

Great idea. I was just going to suggest the same thing.
