Finger hold for icon placement
When placing a hazard or police location on the map, currently you have to tap on the screen to bring up the choices, tap for police, tap again for their location and then tap again to place it on the map. Why not after the first tap, if you keep your finger on the screen, automatically show the options, slide your finger to the one you want, and then once your finger is released, the icon drops straight into the map.
Simple and less steps to get the right icon on the map and also lessens the time concentrating on your phone rather than the road.

GPS apps don't want to add to distracted driving. Alerts for most reports appear 1/2 mile (1km) from the reported spot - it's better to report the issue (whether a hazard report or a map issue (wrong address, road closure, turn not allowed) as close to the problem as possible.
