Ability to increase font size.
Those of us who see distance fine but need reading glasses could use the abolity to increase street name and POI size. It's one if the reasons why I don't use Waze as often as I'd like to.
I need larger font to drive safely. I can’t read the tiny print while driving...

it is almost impossible to see the font in Waze on my iPhone. I live in Florida and I 4 changes almost weekly. I may have to stop using Waze because it is becoming a liability.
For iPhone even setting the text size to larger doesn't work. It's mostly impossible to see the names of the upcoming cross streets. This would be a useful option.

Why hasn’t Waze provided this ability? The street names are way too small by default and some of us like to know what is on and around the route, not just blindly follow the directions.

I can't see the speed limit. Like WTAF, no one has eyes that good. Need to be a lot larger like Apple CarPlay. Makes switching to Android feel like a mistake... Please change or make an option for those with sight issues. Supposed to make driving safer.
would like to increase font size
So frustrated!! Everything Waze should be larger text... It seems to be ok on Android, but so tiny on iPhone... Very dangerous indeed!!!
What they all said...
Font size on map is definatly should be resizable.
Its impossible to see street names.
I tryed to increaze and scale fonts on android general settings and that affecting evrything except waze.
I dont think this is additionsl feature, font size is a basics of serious products like waze
I love Waze but I can't read the street names without reading glasses. Please give us a way to configure the font size.
Guys, come on! Please make font sizes configurable!
I am on the verge of the exactly opposite problem:
Having Waze installed in car Head units of 2 different cars
The resolution of those tablets is small related to new phones,
on newer tablet (the MM system of Honda Jazz 2018 purchased just 2 weeks ago), the resolution is 480x1024
When navigation is opened, only ~50% of the screen height is available for the map
Android status bar already takes ~10% of the screen
The navigation directions take ~ 20% of the screen,
The status bar takes another 20
This causes the map to be so small, that when driving in the city, I can't even see the next turn 100m ahead
Font size I s not big, it not easy to read.
I need to encrease the font size on the waze map. It's too small.
The SPEEDOMETER and the SPEED LIMIT NEED TO BE CAPABLE OF BEING MADE LARGER.
I consider it very dangerous to have to locate, focus and read these dials and then refocus on the road.
It is a fantastic tool but needs larger speed graphics to make it perfect and saver
The Speed limit display would be very useful, if I could see it. I have looked for a setting that would increase the size of the Speed Limit display but can't find one. I can't begin to see those numbers especially while driving.
I have a navigation screen on my car dash and have the ability to either use Waze or Google Maps. I also wear trifocals, but the unreadable small font size on the street names etc. is one reason I've gone back to using Google Maps where the street names are very visible.

Please have an option to increase font size
I would love an option to increase the size of the speed limit indicator.
By way of explanation, when a person ages their corneas become stiffer, which makes the eye muscles have to work harder to pull in the focus. With the small font used by Waze on the speed limit indicator, it can take my eyes a half second to pull in the focus from the road to where I can resolve the small numbers of the speed limit on the Waze screen, and then a half second to push the focus back out to the road. With a larger font as in my car's dashboard speedometer, this is more like a tenth of a second in each direction.

I also sugest to be possible to increase the icon that tells the distance to the next driver action. Takes me a seccond to focus on it while driving. (Top left corner)
