  1. In French, there are accents on some letters. When an accented letter is at the beginning of a sentence or a proper name, it is capitalized.

    In French, there are accents on some letters.
    When an accented letter is at the beginning of a sentence or a proper name, it is capitalized. With or without an accent, depending on usage. Normally, the emphasis is on the uppercase, however some speakers do not put it.
    When searching for an address, Waze searches for the exact word and makes suggestions, ignoring capital letters without accents when there is one in lowercase.
    Many users search in lowercase, while the names of the tracks include uppercase letters, which distorts the results.
    Example: "Rue des Ecoles" will not be proposed for…

  2. RV Parks / Campgrounds

    Add RV Parks / Campgrounds into the Categories list of searchable places. People with RV's and campers etc don't need hotels.

  3. Show Waze result when searching full road name

    Currently if you search the full road suffix instead of the abbreviated one (e.g. Street instead of St, or Road instead of Rd) it will only show Google results and not Waze ones since the roads names are abbreviated when mapped. This can lead to the Wazer not finding roads if they are not mapped in Google Maps or being routed poorly.

    Waze should instead recognise the full name of an abbreviated name and continue to show Waze results.

  4. Where you'll be along route at a certain time

    I'm on a 34 hour road trip currently and it occurred to me that it would be nice to see where exactly along the route we'll be at a certain time. For example, I just drank a coffee and need to find a bathroom 1.5 hours away. A sliding scale to select that time frame and see what destinations are around would be great!

  8. Block search results

    When I search, for example, 123 Main St, without fail, the first search results are for the United States.

    I live in Canada
    I will NEVER be driving in the United States.

    I literally lose a significant amount of time having to type in the complete address to get rid of the American search results.

    Why is there not a button to limit search results to "National results only" or "block international search results"?

  9. Aged gas prices. The icons of gas stations on the 'search gas station map' could be 'shadowed' or marked with vertical (may coloured)

    Aged gas prices. The icons of gas stations on the 'search gas station map' could be 'shadowed' or marked with vertical (may be coloured) side bar indicating that available data is aged.

  15. Expand search results

    Make search results expandable. I was searching for the Physicians Offices at a large hospital. Search results showed ~ a dozen entries for that hospital, but you could only see the name of the hospital in the results. Had to select each result until I found the one I needed. Any result would have got me close enough, but there was one address for the main hospital, one for ED, one for PT, one for Physician Clinics .... Each at the same general location, but takes you to the correct faciility entry for the desired department. It would have made…

  17. Huisnummer toevoegen aan zoekresultaat

    Als ik een adres intypt heeft waze een suggestie weer, als ik vervolgens deze suggestie selecteer kan ik geen huisnummer meer toevoegen. Ik ben dan dus genoodzaakt om het hele adres uit te typen. Zou het niet slimmer zijn dat je na het selecteren nog een functie krijgt om een huisnummer toe te voegen?
