  1. Add AED Locations to Waze ❤️⚡️

    #DoYouSeeAnAED
    It would be amazing if Waze could add the locations of AEDs to the app. Minutes count in the survival of Sudden a Cardiac Arrest and EMS response times aren’t as great as desired. No training is needed to use an AED. Just turn it on and it tells you what to do.

    Thank you, Waze, for your willingness to add the locations of these life-saving devices. #LetsSaveLivesTogether

  2. Please add "Lane Closure" to Hazards. You only have road closure right now.

    The closest thing you have is "Construction" "On Road"

    I searched for "Lane Closure" but it's missing. Traffic can get backed up quickly when there's a lane closure, so it's important to let drivers know that it's coming up.

  4. Map Zoom

    If I am on a Waze path trying to see where I go next, the zoom feature does not work all that well. I'd like to be able to zoom out to see where I am going and to check traffic, but the zoom only will go out for a second, then zooms back in. NOt a fan of this feature and finding myself using Google maps to check traffic and see a path on the map as opposed to Waze zoomed in on the next 500'. I cannot get the map to zoom out to a decent level.

  5. Have an option to see the year of the Satellital Image shown in the WME

    Always shows the actual year but not the year when was taken that Sat Image. Will be really helpful to know that.

  8. Parking zone layer

    You know the difficulties of finding a parking spot around your destination. Especially when you want to find the cheapest and not too restricted spot around your location.
    I think it would be a great idea if there is a layer where you can draw parking zones. In each zone you can add a schedule wherein you can add parking time restrictions, vehicle restrictions, period when parking is free, cost per set time interval and maximum cost (for each day) and times when you're not allowed to park at all.
    With that information the waze app could be made able…

  9. Reward helpful information in Update Requests

    When reviewing Update Requests in Waze Map Editor, it is very helpful and satisfying when the user making the report provides enough information that I can identify and fix a problem without asking for additional information. When this happens, as a reviewer of the Update Request, I would like to be able to reward the user for their helpful information. I envision this as some sort of check box when I mark the Update Request as Solved that would drop a road goodie for the reporter. This is just an idea for implementation and it could take a different form…

  10. App for map editors

    There should be an app for map editors so that they can edit the map away from a computer.

  13. Any way you can develope a way for RV usage? Some roads are not usable for larger vehicles. When we are RVing we are 40 feet plus towing.

    Would like a way to indicate we are traveling by RV and also towing a car so we are extremely long and can not navigate certain roads. Also can not just turn around.

  15. School Zone time difference

    School Zones should have times when the lower speed limit is active. This should also allow Waze to route around school zones if needed. When school is not in session the regular posted speed limit should be shown.

  16. Police are removing Waze warnings...

    Police are removing warnings about them as they sit idle in their spot to avoid detection of us Waze users. I think police warnings once placed should act on a timer expirey system; permanently placed for at least 3 hours once reported and then it's auto removed. That way cops can't cheat this amazing feature and at least after the 3 hours or so another user has to re report thier spot. So both parties get a "chance" without the game going back and forth between users reporting, cops removing, on and off again...

  17. Avoid Dangerous Areas

    Please add a new option under Navigation settings or Maps views called Avoid Dangerous Areas.

    This option should allow the map's builders to mark this areas that could be dangerous for the drivers. Sometimes the best road is not the faster if not the more safely....

    Then if the option is active avoid this areas.

  19. Edit favorites on the map editor

    Enable favorite editing in map editor. This would be an easier way to make include of several favorites or POIs help in planning a trip.

    Ideally it would allow planning with historic traffic data (similar to Google Maps) allowing to establish the travel time between them and estimate the arrival time .

    Alternatively the Waze can import the saved locations from Google Maps, so it should be possible to link the Waze has Google Maps account.

  20. Allow adding temporary road/lane closures thru online map

    When there is a major even such as a parade the only way to indicate road closures is to drive to the area and enter the closure thru the app. When a large area is involved you have to drive to all the areas or depend on others to indicate the road is closed. If we could use the online map editor to mark the roads as temporarily closed it would save a lot of time, gas, and frustration since we could mark all the affected roads at once. This would also be helpful when we see something on the…
