Enable audio alert for speed cams regardless of the speed.
Waze currently only triggers audio alerts about speed cams when the driver is above the speed limit of the specific cam.
Since the speed detection on Waze is very flawed (at least here in Brazil/Rio de Janeiro), and not all cams have their speed limit properly set, it would be MUCH better if Waze triggered it's audible alert for speed cams independently of the fact that the driver may be above or below the limit of the cam.
And keep up the good work!
the only thing why i'm still using other prog that keeps popping up over waze
I would use this more often , if the speed camera alert gave a audio warning, and also displayed speed limit.
Please add the following option: even when I drive below speed limit, I want to be able to have a sound alert that there is a speed trap ahead!
This would buy me a lot of peace of mind as I drive with the flow, not checking my speed or waze for upcoming speed traps.
In France, the Coyote app has this and it is crucial... Though waze is better on all other counts.
I would also like to see an enhanced audio alert for police, as well as some of the other suggestions about both lanes and moving. May I suggest that the alert activate quite a distance from the point than it currently does. I get a voice alert now that is way too close to the point to avoid discovery. Mind you, by alerting, Waze keeps the roads safer.

Custom detailed audio from thosE on your XMPP TEXTING roster or waze groups

A much more popular/earlier idea covers this (had you searched you could have moved it to page one)
and use OPEN Standards to provide detailed description without life risking typing:
(not a suggestion for googlevoice which is NOT an open standard)

I would also like this to work even if the screen is off. My Xperia Z can't charge fast enough in the car dock with the screen on, but I would like police notifications.
Would be great if I could get any sound while approaching speed cameras, Some users say that there is a audio warning but I cant get any sound from mine, using nokia n8 having to watch the screen all the time rather than the road ahead.

oui en France sur l'A 11 certains radars sont signalés graphiquement mais aussi par la voix (ex au Km 167) mais d'autres ne sont signalés que graphiquement (exemple à la sortie d'Angers vers Nantes - dans les 2 sens, ou bien vers Paris après le péage de Saint Arnoult, au Km 5). La signalisation vocale est un plus énorme
I have noticed that vocal warnings or speed camera, etc only happen when navigating to a destination.
If just using Waze without directional navigation you only see the alerts on the map but hear no vocal warning.
Please can this be added?
il serait bien qu'il y ai une alerte sonore à l'approche d'un radar , car pour l'instant sans alerte sonore ça nous oblige à regarder régulièrement le GPS donc à quitter régulièrement la route des yeux donc dangereux.
Merci d'avance vos amélioration
If all Wazers have Waze in the pocket, of the jacket, what is the use of Waze ?
You want hazard warning but you don't warn other users ?
Serge Muccioli commented
Please, a sound and a voice warning for each hazard (fixed or mobile radar) and whatever our speed. Think of bikers who have headsets connected to the phone in the pocket of the jacket and not the eyes on the screen.
A new option to choose when Waze alerts for speed cameras by sound and popup:
- if current speed is greater than the speed limit
Yes a loud audible high-pitched alert, something that would go off before the watch out notification. You could turn it on or off under settings. If you wanted to get fancy you could have a different sound per alert....Police car, radar, hazard, traffic, accident.
At least give us the most important, police and radar alert sound
Permitir avisar por alarma el exceso de velocidad sin necesidad que haya un radar cercano
I think that saying you are approaching speed cameras should be done automatically instead of only being said if approaching at a high speed. Waze says always when approaching red light cameras. The same should be done on speed cameras. I often notice also that when approaching at higher speeds that im not informed of cameras till I am already at the speed camera.
