  1. 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.

  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. 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.

  6. recycling Feature

    Dear Waze, I am a sixth grader at Spring Creek Elementary in Dallas, Texas. My robotics team and I are working on our project for the First Lego League City Shaper season. The goal of the project this season is to somehow improve our city. We are acknowledging that the world is having a hard time recycling. Would you help our cause and consider adding a special feature on Waze or Google Maps that shows where recycling bins owned by stores and other buildings that have signed up to have their recycling bin available to the public. Recycling is important since…

  8. 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. :)

  10. Tow Truck ahead/ road side service personnel on shoulder please move over

    Waze is missing the boat. Tow truckers and emergency crews have passed laws in most states requiring drivers to move over for emergency vehicles and flashing lights. Lots of revenue can be made by integrating this app with tow truck operators and DOT. Call me and I'll help u accomplish this. Imagine how many lives can be saved.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Electrical Map in Puerto Rico will attract millions users

    Adding and Electrical Map, will give Waze a millions of users!
    Since Hurricane Maria, hundreds of roads and bridges where destroyed, signs that does not exist anymore, and roads with a mile of holes. Lately it is so dificult to drive on some roads. Specially those without electricuty jet, 7 month later of hurricane Maria.
    Letting people tag place without electricity, not only give the driver the alert, but will atract a thousand, even million ppl in the island, to repport their house or street.
    Also with a so worldwide use app, will make pressure on local agencies to accelerate…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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."

  18. 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.

  19. Get an editing app for Apple iOS and Android.

    Make it so that you can edit Waze on a separate app on iPhone and Android devices.

  20. 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
