Add dash cam features in background, auto record when car is moving, just enable feature and everything runs in background. Similar to app called witness. Record 10 segments, 6min each. Store date,time and GPS. Thought of this after learning that every car in Russia has a dash cam (all those meteor recordings).
Great thinking! We’ll share with the team; they’re always interested in new feature ideas.

I use a separate Dashcam app that runs in the background with waze on top - life would be easier if waze incorporated its own Dash cam facility.
Use autoboy or Dashamtravel
I'm up for this suggestion, 100%.
This cam corder is light on the mobile & synched with the waze on all its location. Very useful in cases of accidents where the incidents r all recorded on video.
existing navigation add on.
While I was driving home this afternoon I came up with an idea to include a dash cam as part of Waze.
South Africans are notorious at driving illegally and including a dash cam in Waze which would serve as a record of the incident(s), date, time and location, plus a recording which could be used in any potential court case.
I know many people would use this functionality on a daily basis.
I would recommend continuous recording to capture events that occur while stopped at stop signs/red lights etc.
It would be great if we could get directions coming up on our Ford Sync system on the dash behind the wheel as well. Currently you get it all on the touch screen, but not on the display behind the wheel. The Ford original sat nav brings up the "next directions" on the dash. Please see my post on the forums:

Really good idea, especially if you can buy some kind of window sticker...." Waze cctv in operation " as an example. It'll be on a par with others, like Sygic
Would definitely like and use this function.
And as commented by someone else, please ensure the option to record to SD card is provided.

As an iPhone user, I am not able to have the camera recording in the background. The initial implementation of the feature could be as simple as a "record my journey" button. Simple options, such as, how much disk space to use, video quality etc.

I would like to suggest a new function which makes it possible to turn your cell phone into a camera through using WAZE
That is to add the camera button in the application screen and when pressed, it activates the back camera of the smartphone and records the way.

IMAGINE WAZE DOING ALL THE DRIVING ON THE CAR ITS CONNECTED TO THE CAR ALWAYS AND RECOGNIZES PEDESTRIANS AND STOP SIGNS VIA SMARTPHONE CAMERA ON DASHBOARD IMAGINE WAZE SAFE NEVER DO AN ACCIDENT AGAIN AI WAZE ALWAYS WITH U
dash cam !!!
If this feature is done, please allow to specify where the data will be recorded. Internal memories of phones will be killed by the constant rewriting (flash memories can only handle a limited number of rewrite cycles). Using an external high-endurance microSD card will allow to spare the phone internal memories by using a dedicated and purposely manufacturer microSD card.

Pleas add Augmented Reality display with dash cam and collision worning... so that all this essential feature be in one app!

Please integrate this. I have 2 use 2 apps every time autoboy and waze. Just integrate it
There are no camera apps avalible for iPhone that record whilst the app is minimised (I presume for security purposes). It would be very useful if you added a video recording function so that the Waze app would double as a dashcam as well as a sat nav.
Have the ability to download WAZE on the car system touch screen. Eliminating the need to have the smart phone mounted on the dash.
I would also like to see waze be able to save a drive during the drive or at the end. By this I mean saving each GPS position update along the drive. Then it should provide the ability to see the complete drive and show the speed at any point along the drive. This would make it possible to defend from tickets that are inappropriately issued where the police's "word" is all the evidence it takes.
