Offline map and directions available.
Offline map and directions available for driving abroad without the use of internet (roaming).
Great thinking! We’ll share with the team; they’re always interested in new feature ideas.
My idea is to get waze working because a lot of people can not get GPS
I'd like to be able to use Offline maps that are already indexed for Long. and Lat. Hope this helps.

Dear Waze company, can you please make this app were some of u can download offline maps so that way we can still use the app when driving? it would be nice to have that as a feature as well.

Warum funktioniert das Programm nicht offline?

I really like Waze but It consumes a lot of data by not loading the map on the mobile.
I find restaurants easily and your phone.They should put an option to download a map of the country of interest.

I have an Android with a 64 GB SD card. I think it would be a great idea to be able to direct the download of maps to my SD card. //JC.Loui
For phones that have a limited data plane , let us download maps so we can use offline and get traffic as well. This would be very helpful for phones that have a limited data plan.
Provide an option for Waze Users (WU) to download the map details grids in advance of travel. This would be likened to Google Maps feature of downloading map grids in advance of travel from Pt A to Pt B that it detects signal connections could be challenging. Waze could make it even better by allowing WU to force the download of map grid details regardless if "computer" detects questionable download connections or not. Obviously there is still a LIVE data input for the WU (e.g. police, hazard, etc.) but having the map data would greatly curb future download data needed by the app. Thank you in advance for considering, "LT"
Tu idea es excelente! Sería una gran solución para mantener actualizadas aquellas zonas en las que no hay cobertura.

There are several ideas about having offline maps, so I won't extend much in that.
I think that something that could be useful for other drivers is to have the areas without phone coverage displayed on the map, or at least get a notification when you are approaching it.
If someone looses coverage, the client should track the point where it lost it, then track everything locally (tracks, user notifications, etc), and when it has coverage again, send the offline navigation data + start and end of coverage locations.
After several users enters the same are, you can average these points and show something in the map, maybe a grayed out overlay, or a notification warning the users.
Also, users entering the dark zone will see the reports from other wazers that already left the zone, they could be outdated, but sometimes it's better than nothing.
For example: You driving in a mountain road, no coverage, and you see a road block because of rocks or snow. You report it, turn around, and when you get coverage all following users will know that that road is closed.
Some other users could find the same issue if they enter the dark zone before you leave it, but at least you are helping the ones that haven't entered the zone yet.
Should make this app to work as a real gps on offline mode with this will be perfect. Good job
To keep an offline cache of route travelled to allow areas where no cell coverage to later be edited in Wme.
Another option would be to be able to “record” a ride. So normal day to day rides would work al usual, but if a person wants to documet a ride for future aspects, tomhave a “record” option and afterwards to be able to send the report via mail to a predifoned mail.
Uber sends to the users email a report of the route, distance, time, etc. Something similar would be a great tool for Waze. This way it can be used as a business reporting tool.
To be able to print to pdf o send via email a ride that was finnished. This would be helpful to use Waze as a work tool and report a ride to a supervisor. For example for salespeople who visit clients. This way the supervisor can verify the rout, distance, time and schedule.
Please do add downloaded maps Waze! That would be a great addition!
Outside data use, this would allow for Waze to work when outside cell service. I had TomTom app that stored all data and was a great app, but they just broke their app to force people off their purchased product into one of their subscription apps. I am often out of cell service and need to turn on a GPS product but can't if it requires cell service. Please consider adding the option to download and store maps locally by manual toggle selection per region.

Ability to either download a route map or easily alter one created by Wave; for example ability to use Tappan Zee bridge around NYC rather than the GW bridge.Use intermediate points in route creation, or drop and drag on route view (difficult on a phones small screen.

Porque vocês não disponibilizam a opção de áreas offline?
Waze é muito bom só está perdendo do Google Maps por isso.
E o Google Maps só perde para vcs por não disponibilizem a localização de radares.
Então porque vocês não se tornam o Navegador Melhor do mundo juntando as 2 coisas?
