Extend Vehicle Type to allow custom config settings and specific vehicles
I spoil myself and so I own and use multiple vehicles. I have a daily driver car, a pleasure car and a motorcycle. There are multiple settings I change for each vehicle and style of driving.
For daily commutes, I want routing on fastest routes including tolls, as well as only alerts to be announced by voice - otherwise I glance at the map for routing. My daily vehicle has a SpeedPass for automated tolls, so I want these routes considered. My daily driver does not paid with bluetooth very well, so I need the audio to come from the phone.
For pleasure driving, I prefer to avoid difficult intersections and toll roads because I don't have a SpeedPass. I don't need to get to where I'm going by the fastest route - scenic routes are better. My pleasure car pairs with bluetooth and so I prefer to have the audio from Waze to come over the speakers of the car.
For the motorcycle, I need to keep my hands on the handlebars and my eyes on the road much more than in a car - so I need my routing directions spoken, not just the alerts. I also want to avoid freeways, and definitely need to exclude tolls, because I do not have a SpeedPass, and to pay I toll, I would need to take off my gloves and dig around in my pockets for my wallet - and then put away the wallet and redo my gloves, which is very time consuming at a toll gate, so very inconvenient for me, other drivers, and the toll gate operator. I have an in-helmet bluetooth audio system, and so I need the alerts and directions to go to bluetooth, because I have no chance of hearing them from the phone speakers.
Currently, there is several different settings in different areas of the Waze configuration that I need to change when switching from one vehicle to another, and sometimes I switch from one vehicle to another multiple times in a single day, and it is irritating to have to go through those multiple steps - especially if I'm in a hurry and the previous vehicle's settings are just "wrong" for my immediate needs.
I've considered having different routing applications, Waze, Google Maps and others, one for each vehicle - but Waze is just such a great app by comparison to anything else I've tried that using something else feels like a downgrade.
