Speed Limit Change Alert
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add a voice alert of speed limit changes. I am on the highway all the time and the speed limit constantly changes. It would be helpful if the voice would say “Speed limit has increased” or “Speed limit has decreased”. I got a ticket because I thought I was still in a 75mph speed zone and I didn’t realize it changed to 55mph. Yes the image of speed limit changes accordingly but a nice voice alert would be extremely BENEFICIAL!! Thank you!!!
Exactly - must have feature! Add voice speed limit change alert.
+ It would be nice to know the speed limits in advance.
+ Also let people to turn ON this feature by themselves so they can't complain it's annoying
I double what Anonymous has commented on Aug 6th 2018. Please make the speed limit changes in advance. I like to coast to a decreasing speed limit. That's because legally you have to be driving under the limit at the sign anyway (at least this is the case in Finland) and just letting off the gas pedal saves fuel, brakes and lowers the chance of sudden need to hit the brakes and that in turn lowers the chance of accidents. My car has CVT transmission so I it coasts quite far and I have to let go of the gas pedal in good time. This works well if I know the limits or if they are visible. But this feature would be a good addition for unfamiliar routes.
Also, the new PHEV's and EV's coast quite far too if regeneration is set to low (which is more economical IF you can anticipate and reduce speed without using the brakes) so I guess the need for this feature is going to rise in the future.
I've been looking at other navigation apps and devices for this feature and just found the first app where this feature has been implemented. Sygic has it (https://www.sygic.com/what-is/speed-limits), but I wouldn't want to give up all the good stuff Waze has! There's a lot. I like it very much in general.

Yes! Even an annoying sound alert would work. It could be an option for those who want to use the feature.
This is almost exactly what I came here to ask for so I won't duplicate. However I would like the alert to be a short distance before the actual speed limit change as for other features so something like "In x yards the speed limit changes to xx mph". This gives a change to slow down before the actual change and reduces the chance of being snapped by a mobile speed camera hiding just behind the speed limit sign!! (Voice of experience here!)
