  1. 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…

  2. Require Place Update Request approvers to confirm deletions & other major changes

    Please add an extra layer of confirmation before saving in WME, if approving a PUR would remove a Place, change it from an Area to a Point, or change it from Public to Residential (all actions that delete a lot of data).

    A change of the place's primary name should also require an extra layer of confirmation before saving, this is even more common than deletion although less immediately destructive.

    Why do I bring this up? A Rank 6 editor, or possibly Waze staff, recently deleted the Area Place for San Francisco International Airport. It had been locked at Rank…

  5. Change icon for items no longer active

    Remove the current crossed out red map pin Icon and replace with a Red Thumbs Down Icon to indicate notification is no longer active. There is tremendous confusion for users as to what the symbols/icons mean. Having “thumbs up” for active and “thumbs down” for inactive is intuitive. I’m not sure who came up with the current use but it is not user friendly and confusing.

  7. High crime button

    Hi
    I use Waze daily both at home and in all the countries I visit and I introduced my family in South Africa to Waze too.
    South Africa, like many countries these days have a high crime rate with hijackings (of cars), hold-ups (holding up drivers at gun point at traffic lights), Smash and grab (smashing car windows and grabbing valuables at traffic lights).
    People (especially tourists) use Waze to navigate unfamiliar places and I have often found myself in an usafe area when following Waze navigation. This was brought home to me on Monday this week when I received…

  8. התראה על כבישים אדומים וקטעי כבישים המועדים לתאונות

    בישראל יש המון כבישים בהם התרחשו הרבה תאונות דרכים מבחינה סטטיסטית. כדי לתכנן את הנסיעה בצורה יעילה ובטוחה בתחילת הדרך הניווט הקולי יתריע על קטע הכביש וגם
    כשלושה קילומטרים לפני הגעה לקטע הכביש המסוכן.

  9. Invert Coordinates in Editor (first Latitude, after Longitude)

    In Waze Map Editor the coordinates appear Longitude and Latitude.
    But in my opinion, this is stupid, because all Maps, GPS, Navigators use the opposite, first Latitude and after Longitude.
    I use the coordinates to search something in another map, and I have to reverse the coordinates.

    So, I suggest invert the coordinates in Waze Map Editor. Showing first Latitude, after Longitude.

  10. New Feature Request - When a photo must be rejected

    It would be nice to have a comment window or a multi-choice button list in WME to send to the Wazer who submitted a rejectable photo so that we can tell them why the photo is being rejected:

    - This photo shows a person's face
    - This photo is too blurry
    - This photo shows a license plate
    - This photo is not helpful in identifying the place

    ...and so forth. It would be something more than just "this does not meet our community standards."

  12. Sperrungen und Fahrzeugauswahl

    Hallo,

    es wäre sinnvoll Sperrungen bezgl. Dieselfahrverbote mit einzupflegen und natürlich muss die Fahrzeugauswahl erweitert werden, wo eben die Spritklasse eingestellt werden kann. Die App sollte dann in der lage sein die gesperrten Teilabschnitte in der Berechnung zu umfahren und Warnungen auszusprechen, bevor man doch in solch einen Abschnitt einfahren könnte.

    Ich wohne in Berlin. Hier wird es aktuell ab kommenden Jahr und in anderen Städten ist das ja leider schon der Fall.

  13. Replace "Police" with "Emergency Vehicle"

    Just an idea to protect our police officers Waze should just list emergency vehicles. This would let me the user know I should approach with caution and would protect our police, fire, etc. from any misuse of our information. Thanks! Maybe also create a Rideshare group. :)

  14. Comments

    Allow permanent comments to be attached to objects (roads, places) i the map editor to pass information to Future Editors to understand why something was done in a certain way, or assumptions made by the editor when a edit is done.

  16. Gas price editor

    I do not know if there is a function that allows advertised gas station prices to be edited by the user, but it has happened to me, twice now, that I come to a gas station that is supposed to sell cheap gas, but the price is grossly inaccurate. I would want to see options within the gas station interface where price corrections could be submitted and up/down-voted for their accuracy.

  17. High risk areas

    I am grateful for your free app.
    I have an idea to enhance the maps: people should be able to mark streets as a dangerous place to drive. We should be able to turn down a switch in order to avoid high risk routes.
    Just take it into consideration please.

    Kind regards,

    Jorge Luis

  20. Placeable reports once youve passed a hazard. Not just where you are right now

    Im unable to accurately place a report unless i report it at the precise moment i pass it. Which isnt always possible or safe to do so.
