Add closure report to Android Auto
There does not appear to be a way to report a temporary closure of a road due to an accident, etc. from within the Waze Android Auto interface. Please consider adding this feature.
This feature could have potentially saved me 30+ minutes on my recent trip. Multiple roads were temporarily closed due to a presidential convoy travelling through the area, but nobody had a way to report the road closures!

I live near the government palace and it's very common to find closed roads due protest and stuff, and I can't report that using Auto interface. It's very annoying that Waze keeps rerouting me to the closed road when I have to change routes.
Need this to mark turnaround areas as closed during construction season!
This is basic functionality

I tried to report a road closure do construction the only option through Android auto was rode missing. Would like to play a part and making sure folks can get to where they're going and not get stuck and have to turn around.
Ryan Dunn commented
I also support adding this feature.

I've seen this issue before, figured it would have been addressed by now but still have to mark as map issue. It only makes sense that the AA / Carplay versions would 100% reflect the Android / iPhone versions respectively.
Ricky Contreras commented
Add road closures to Android auto now.
Beth Brinkley commented
I use CarPlay and I can’t submit road closure reports! I wasted 25 minutes this week driving around lost because Waze wouldn’t reroute me. Please add this to the CarPlay feature!!!

This is an issue that sometimes forces me to switch to Google Maps because the only routes that Waze gives me are through a closed road. If I could mark it as closed, Waze would route me around it and I could use Waze more exclusively.

Why I have still to use the workaround every time I'm standing before a road block, Every other navigation system I used had this "Reroute now" button,
1. Stop at side line
2. pull cable to switch from AA to App mode
3. report road block, getting new route
4. back to AA to rive with this new router
5. continue driving
BTW this has for me same priority as e.g. reporting a police control, or a broken car that stand on road or side lane

Just ran into this. Using Waze to navigate a a new city and it keeps trying to route me on a closed road. Only way I could report from Android Auto that made sense was a map issue. Just ended up creating more work for the editors.

Could this ever get looked at?

There is no possibility to signal a road closure in android auto.
The user need to disconnect his phone and indicate the closure through the app.
This missing feature in very important to my mind

I run into this issue with the factory radios on Ford vehicles.
I transport vehicles for dealerships and fleets. Having to stop and disconnect the phone from Android Auto to report a road closure is a bit of a hassle.
I just want to help other driver's avoid traffic.

It would be incredibly useful. I was told to go down a closed road the other day and had no way to tell my map the road was closed through my Android Auto. The road has been closed for some time and it kept directing back to a road that was not there.
Dennis Burke commented
Yes please do this. Too many times I've been directed to a closed road or ramp

This is an important option for increasing road safety & driving efficiency. Not have it is dumb & make WAZE of less value to the users.
Michael Naulin commented
Hello. Cannot notify via Android auto that a road is closed. When will this feature be available? Thank you
David Foran commented
I am using Android Auto. Once connected to Android Auto, the following functions disappear: gas prices, roadside help, map chat,place, & closure. These greatly decrease the value & functionality of WAZE.
