  3. 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. 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.

  5. Time dependent Speed Limits

    We really need the ability to add time dependent Speed Limits for school zones or other times of the day where the maximum speed limit changes, this would not only help with navigation slow downs (which most school zones wouldn't affect too much anyway) but would also increase safety for drivers and pedestrians in the area.

    If we were able to set speed limits during specific times of the day it would mean a popup warning for a changed speed would mean users would be aware and slow down and hopefully prevent accidents from occurring in this speed sensitive zones.

  6. Add "Residential Street" as an Additional Road Type

    There tend to be situations in which neighborhoods and suburban communities have systems of roads such that there are a few feeder roads that are intended to serve a network of smaller residential streets. In the current state of the map editor, it can be difficult to map such areas so that traffic is generally directed along the streets with higher speed limits and fewer driveways. Usage of the prioritizing functions and setting certain segments as private roads helps a bit to alleviate this problem. I am suggesting a new idea.
    Create a road type "residential street" for roads that…

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  12. 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…

  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.

  15. 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…

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Faróis nas estradas

    Por ter tornado se lei ter que ligar os faróis mesmo durante o dia nas rodovias, acho que o waze poderia nos alertar, para acendermos os faróis auxiando seus usuários para que evitem ser atuados com multas.
