  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. 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.

  3. 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    Some countries have changed their names recently and on the Waze maps are still these outdated names: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.

  5. Overlay a weather radar map into the waze map

    Would be amazing to have an overlay of the weather. This feature could allow users to avoid weather patterns when necessary.

  8. 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.

    Sempre uso o Waze, mas sinto falta dos Postos GNV no Cadastro.

    Logo, tenho que recorrer a outra fonte: http://www.gasnet.com.br/postos_gnv.asp

    Será que não teria jeito de cadastrar, amigos?

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Mark bad quality road

    There are so many roads witch are paved, but the quality is so awful, its more like driving on dirt road or trail. Would be great to mark bad quality roads so I could avoid driving there and save my car instead of braking it driving trough. Of course there should be an option to avoid bad quality roads also in the Waze app. I hope to see this feature in soon future. Best regards

  14. Edit Favorites

    Allow users to edit 'favorite' locations after adding them, so that users can update addresses or rename 'favorites'. That way, when friends move, for example, users can edit the 'favorite', instead of having to delete it and re-add it completely.

  15. Simulator to test editions

    Sometimes when we make changes to the map, we need to wait for it to update to see if it had the desired effect.
    It would be nice to have some type of simulation in the WME and thus be able to avoid various changes until the expected result is obtained.
    Because of COVID, many editors have not been able to check if the changes we made had the impact we wanted, so we had to wait for a report that warns us of the error or not.

  16. 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…

  17. Add Amazon prime music to music options

    It would be nice to have amazon prime music in the list of music options. I pay a monthly fee and like it best. So it would be nice to be able to use with the map app I use as well.

  18. 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.

  19. Avoid roads that don't allow trailers and propane.

    We will be purchasing our first travel trailer. We don't want to come to a parkway or a tunnel and find out we are not allowed to travel the road. PLEASE add an option for towing trailers.

  20. 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.
