Add a wireless OBD2 sensor for additional vehicle safety information
Suggest adding a wireless Bluetooth OBD2 device (BlueDriver or OBDLink MX+) so Waze can access safety features from your vehicle such as:
1. Blind spot warning
2. Accidental lane departure
3. Show when turn signals are on - for those that forget - optional beep after 5 seconds and before my wife says “YOUR BLINKERS ON!!!”
Option - For lane departure and blind spot warning above - when the two are triggered the Waze display or the hud display below could kick in the appropriate mirror camera video (if the vehicle has mirror cameras) so you see the situation at hand without needing to jerk your head around. And if both are triggered at the same time the mirror camera image could add a red bar across the top of the image.
Accessing an optional Bluetooth OBD2 sensor would also give Waze an accurate vehicle speed so that issues such as the CarPlay/Ford speed discrepancy could be fixed without calling the vehicle manufacturer into play for a solution.
If there was a display mirroring option to use our phones as a heads up display or if
Waze this could be linked to one of the new TFT full screen heads up display projectors then all of the important gps and safety information could be displayed front and center for the driver.
I drive a big 1 ton dually and the vehicles around me are my primary concern and keeping my eyes on the road is essential
Every aftermarket Heads Up Display on the Market is Lacking in showing safety features and none have the strength of information that Waze has. I believe combining all these features along with the latest HUD Technology would make Waze the best vehicle GPS and Safety device on the market.
Thanks Waze and Waze Community
