  1. WAZE OFFLINE

    Gostaria de saber a possibilidade de o Waze ter a opção de ficar Offline, pois no Brasil, no interior o sinal é muito fraco.

  2. Refined Parking Lot Designations: Customers Only, Employees Only, Visitors, etc.

    I suggest to refine the designations of Parking Lots to include Customer Parking Only, Employee Parking Only, Faculty/Staff Parking Only, Visitor Parking, Event Parking Only, etc.

    With the specified designations, the parking lot suggestion would not show up in the suggested parking lots unless the user had selected the attached destination.

    Use cases:

    -In an office park there are many parking lots, most of which are for employees only. There are areas designated for visitors, which would be a good thing to indicate on the waze app.

    -There is a stadium where parking is for events only, and whenever one…

  4. Flagged Place reject reason

    It would great if you could communicate with Flagged place request to tell the Waser why their update request is being denied or feed back to educate the Wazer. I keep getting flagged Places because the gas price is wrong. Wish I had a way to educate the user on how to update the price.

  5. Team up with Pokemon for rare pokemon locations.

    Rare pokemon are hard to find, but they are always in set locations for a small period of time, just like a traffic accident. You could easily piggypack the popularity of Pokemon Go and get a ton of people to use your app for finding and reporting rarer pokemon locations.

  6. Implementation of new country names

    Some countries have changed their names recently and on the Waze maps are still these outdated names:
    Czech Republic - > Czechia
    Macedonia - > North Macedonia
    Swaziland - > Eswatini

    Today the other map providers show these new country names.

  10. AskWazersBox - a hybrid reporting tool enhancing Wazers and Map Editors cooperation

    As StreetView is often outdated or just does not exist when trying to keep Waze Maps updated with latest road constructions or changes, road configurations/restrictions/speed limits/signs etc. needs to be checked and verified on-spot. There's no chance Waze Map Editors will go and check everything themselves. We have so many Wazers driving around that could help them answering specific questions.

    I suggest creating a hybrid reporting tool that would extend existing reporting functionality and help Waze Map Editors gathering specific answers they need directly from Wazers who are on-spot. This would let to keep Waze Maps updated as fast and…

  11. Automatic forum login when in WME.

    Recommend that whenever a user logs into WME Production then they automatically get their forum account opened. You use the same user name and password.

    This way editors don't have to catch a new editor's attention in WME chat or via a UR or "red roads".

    Since the feed shows that you have a new PM when in WME this would seem to be a logical next step.

  12. Exposing mobile camera speed locations

    Today we saw a flash from what turned out to be a very well concealed speed camera that was not reported on waze. I have just discovered that the Police force (here in WA) publish the locations of their mobile speed cameras, in terms of the road and the suburb that it is in. I think it would be a great idea if this information could be uploaded, and if Waze could introduce a feature that announced the possibility of a mobile speed cameras in the area by allowing the map to change colour. The link is here - https://www.police.wa.gov.au/Traffic/Cameras/Camera-locations

  13. Aviso de aprobación de FOTO, LUGAR, ETC, al usuario waze que la reporto.

    Sería muy bueno, que los usuarios que reportan FOTOS, LUGARES, ETC y que no lo pueden aprobar por tener un Nivel Bajo, reciban un mensaje automático cuando un usuario superior (Ej. L4, L5, etc) les apruebe dicho reporte. Creo que de esta manera, el usuario estaría viendo que su esfuerzo fue valorado y lo incentivaría a nuevos reportes. Gracias.

  16. Import map road closures from official sources

    Automatically import road closures from official government sources available on the web.

    In my area there are several government website that report road closures during storms or natural disasters. Scripts could be built to get the information from the web page, and automatically close/open/update road closures.

  17. Automatic flag on unused places

    Many places in the WME are not used for various reasons: The place was closed or moved, the place was created for an event that has passed, the place was wrongly created, the place exists but nobody uses it for routing. During the years, the number of such "garbage" places is growing, and will continue to grow forever.
    There must be some way of cleaning these places from the map.
    It is suggested that every place (excluding RPP and natural features) that nobody set it as a destination for 15 months, will be automatically flagged, with a reason that the…

  20. Comments and Notes as separate layer

    I think it would be very useful to have a option to add/edits comments/notes in a manner such as a "Venue type" (place type) point/area. The difference from the existing venue functionality is that the comment/note would be on a different layer, and would not be rendered in the livemap or in the app (i.e., only visible on WME).

    The idea is that in WME, this would allow longer term notes to be made, edited, locked, and deleted in a manner similar to existing place points/area functionality, in order to explain certain unusual mapping issues.

    For instance:
    - temporary/construction related…
