  1. LInk up with Highways Management

    HI Waze. I'm guessing you already have a link up with the Highways Management Team. Do they fail to tell you all the work they're doing? Driving home last night there was a large closure (M11 turn off on the M25) which wasn't on Waze and wasn't on any of the M25 warning boards either. Seems odd that it wasn't on either seeing as it was coned off and clearly involved planned works.

  2. Adding stops

    Would be so helpful to add multiple stops in a route and also choose the order desired of the stops.

  3. Plan your own trip

    It would be nice if we were able to plan our own trip, by that I mean, you want to go to A from home but want to go via XYZ and not the routes you give us. Example: Home to Sudbury, Suffolk Via XY and Z ( Bibury )

  4. Simple route option - fewest turns/instructions

    Many times the added efforts of following the maze routes created/generated result in negligible time/distance savings. Why not reduce the driving effort, reduce driving distractions created by the route, and improve attention dedicated to driving safely, instead of turning frequently?

  5. Safest route

    In addition to quickest route, display safest route, incorporating factors like street lights at night, bad potholes, and animal crossing (e.g. deer crossing during dawn and dusk, when deer are out).

  6. Ability to add obstructions offline

    Wish there was a way to add (eg, road closures) offline - currently it seems the only way to do it is to actually drive there until the triangle button appears on the screen. Trying to warn everyone as a closed road is currently showing as roadworks/closed lane.

  8. add the criterion "simplicity of the route" and an option of chosing the simples route

    add the criterion "simplicity of the route" based on the number of crossings, turns, etc., and an option of chosing the simples route

    but currently the choice of three routes does not work at all: just yesterday the service have permanently ignored my choice instead trying to drive me over the route it considered shorter, despite my other choice. No option to complaine to this on the site.

  9. End route at end of closed segments

    When the destination would end on a segment that is currently closed the route ends on the next closest segment (that isn't closed) which in many cases is a road in the back of the property where there's no access to the destination.

    Consider ending the route at the last node that is not closed on the route - at the node the closure ends/starts.

  10. Provide Cost for Dynamic Toll Roads

    When a suggested route includes a toll that has flexible prices based on other factors, please provide the cost for the toll for that route. For example, in and around Washington, DC, there are several toll roads that have flexible prices based on traffic, time of day, etc. It would be useful when selecting when to use a route with one of those tolls if Waze could provide us the amount we will be charged for the suggested route.

  11. Create Waze Vehicle Profiles

    It would be nice to have Vehicle profiles, and change them rapidly on the Main Menu.
    For example:
    I use a Private Diesel Car most of the times.
    I also ride a Gasoline Motorcycle (witch can ride the BUS lane in Oporto - Portugal)
    I can also use an TAXI Electrical Car.

    In this case I should be able to create 3 Vehicle profiles on the Settings, and on the main menu, choose witch one we want to use at the moment, so that routes can be calculated accordingly. Otherwise, I must go to Definitions and Change the Type of…

  13. Being able to add more than 1 stop

    Being able to plan a whole round trip with multiple stops.
    Maybe reordering stops, if a stop is groceries and you would want that being your last stop out of the multiple stops/errands you need to run.

  14. Feature to Avoid Specific Road

    I really do love Waze! You guys are great! But can you PLEASE add an option to avoid specific roads (or steps of a route)? There’s a route that Waze directs me on my commute daily, both ways, that includes 2 roads that are extremely dangerous. I don’t mean difficult intersections or something like that. I mean regularly reported gun violence, car jackings at stop signs/lights, and gang activity. I literally had this map editing option back in the days of printing out mapquest directions… any kind of option would be wonderful! Thank you!

  15. UK time restrictions (School Streets)

    Monday to Friday
    No entry between 8am and 9:15am."
    And 2:45pm and 4:00pm."

    There are loads of these signs in hundreds of cities all over the UK especially London. Can't we allow for local map editors to save time based restrictions into the map?

  16. Put locations at top of 'Where To' list at set time and day

    I often do things same time each week. It would be great to have the option to set a time and a day for saved locations.

    This would mean if I open Waze around 5:30pm on any Tuesday or Thursday, (this) item will start at the top of my 'Where To' list.

    This feature would work best in conjunction with a 'Silent' option for each saved location. Since I go to certain places frequently, I already know how to get there.

    Setting a Saved Location to 'Silent' would mean directions are only read aloud to the driver IF THEY DIFFER…

  17. Tow Mode

    I often tow a trailer for work, and use Waze to go everywhere - but often time saving routes will take me down side streets and laneways that are narrow and difficult to navigate with a trailer. Same would apply for touring with a caravan.

    It would be awesome to have a mode that minimizes tight turns, side streets or intersections without traffic lights.

  18. Custom Routes to avoid Major Cities Centers

    This goes to having customized routes, I was driving from the Northeast to SC, this would make me drive through heavily congested areas like NYC and Waze always wants to make me use the GW bridge, which is a horrible route if you have ever driven it. There should be an option to choose less congested routes, example I would choose to use the Verrazano Bridge route that takes me around the city. This should be an option for heavily congested large cities, Wash D.C., Philly, etc...

  19. Gas station stops by fuel range

    Ability to enter fuel range of your vehicle to automatically suggest stops on long trips. When driving long distances, I have to make the destination a gas station that is *** miles away, then change my destination at that stop to the next gas station, then finally add my final destination at the last gas stop. Would be nice to enter a final destination and then a fuel range of 350 miles and suggest as many stops are needed.

  20. Routes

    When using carplay with Iphone: in oorder to see all the routes, one need to click on the arrow and then a window opens with the initial route already offered, and the request to click again on the screen to see all the routes. The second click on the screen is completely unnecessary because it is clear that if I click the first time to see routes I would like to see all the options (usually 3 ). Maybe you can check its cancellation. Thank you
