  1. One Touch Reports in Car Play / Android Auto - Customizable

    It would be great to have the ability to customize one-touch reports.
    See the attached imgur photo.
    In this case, I made vehicle on shoulder, police, and object on the road as my "One Touch."
    I also added a compass to the navigation bar on the bottom left. (The compass I used is far too busy for Waze.)

  2. Run app on locked screen, so if phone is stolen other apps can’t be accessed

    In Brazil, many cellphones are stolen from inside the cars while waze is open, which allows criminals to have full access to other apps.
    It would be nice if there was a way for waze to run on the locked screen, so that we can still see the map, but the phone would have to be unlocked in order to access anything else.

  3. Burn-In Protection for organic displays (OLED / AMOLED)

    I drive 30-40k Kilometers per year and now I have the Top Direction Box and Red Button burned into my Phone.
    Please Implement a Burn-In Protection, a lot of high end Phones use Organic Displays theses days.
    I Do not really want to use Waze with my new Pixel until fixed!

  4. Interface suggestion

    When asking if police or disabled car on side of the road, perhaps separate the “still there” and “not there” buttons. Perhaps one on the top and one on the bottom. Sometimes I accidentally click the wrong button as the car is bumpy and the buttons are too close together. FYI. This is on Apple CarPlay.

  5. Group toll passes & exemptions by country and/or state

    It would be great that if in the app the Toll passes and exemptions would be grouped by country and/or state. As there are a gazillion ones in the list it's hard to find the ones you want to choose.

    Ex. Belgium -> LEZ Antwerp, LEZ Bruxelles, LEZ Ghent and etc.
    France -> Crit'Air 1,2,3,4,5,E
    Germany -> Umweltplakette Grün, Umweltplakette gelb.

    Regards

  6. Optimize UI for 2din car navigation, remove "Where to" searchbox

    Hello,

    I have car multimedia that has 2 din rack. This is pretty common size for older cars with additionally bought multimedia devices and unfortunately the resolution for such devices is rarely over 1024x600.

    These devices are always positioned in landscape mode. Sadly waze looks really bad with such low rez and in landscape ... the searchbox "Where to" takes half of the screen. The navigation arrows/directions are also taking a lot of space. This leaves only small portion of the map visible and the app is not easy for use as well.

    Please optimize the UI for low rez…

  7. Speedometer size

    The speedometer size and placement should be a user setting. Along with Apple Watch app that displays the current speed and vibrates when over the speed limit threshold.

  8. Cuadro negro de indicaciones

    Se debería poder ocultar el cuadro negro de indicaciones de ruta ya que tapa casi el 50% del mapa en la pantalla cuando esta horizontal y me es más útil poder visualizar el mapa completo. No se si sea el software del celular por esto debería ser opción que se pueda ocultar.

  9. Show "Where to?" Only when the app is Fully loaded

    Sometimes when opening app (mobile), you can immediately tap "where to?" And start choosing the destination, but then while typing, suddenly input view closes back to main view and you accidentally tap on something and app starts calculating routes you dont even want to go to. That is annoying! Better do not show the "Where to?" Untill the app is totally loaded and ready. It would make overall UX more pleasant in a rush.

  10. I know most of the time I just travel within 20 to 30 miles and I know where I'm going. I just like to monitor what's ahead of me. I don't e

    Most of my driving involves within 20 or 30 miles. I usually know where I'm going and don't need directions I would just like to monitor what's out in front of me like accidents construction police and so forth. On my small mobile app screen real estate is prime and that search box which I can't seem to move out of the way takes up a good portion of the space on my phone. It would be nice if we have the option not to have to select the drive destination just get in and drive I thought it worked…

  11. Search bar for Tolls and HOV passes

    In the Tolls and HOV passes menu, there are a lot of passes for a while (in the past there were only passes for my country), and I have to scroll through them to find the pass I'm looking for. It is really a lot, I guess for the whole of Europe. It would be beneficial to have a search bar for this menu to be able to filter/search passes.

  13. Waze share route problem

    Good morning everybody! My Waze isn't working correctly on share route resource, redirected from others apps. I use apps for Driver like Uber and 99 Taxis. When I receive a new route, the app redirects to Waze, but with problem. My Waze not showing the vehicle, names of street and arrive point. I've printed this.
    Thanks at all

  14. Bigger Inbox reply’s input box

    Please make the inbox reply’s input box bigger on the iPhone. Since it is currently just one line, it is hard for me to see and scroll up and down to review and input the rest of my entered reply

  15. Combine waze and google maps

    It would be better to allocate servers for long trips as well. It would make Waze better. Also, why not incorporate the waze reporting and crowdsourcing features into Google maps?  I would even pay a monthly subscription for that.

  16. Integration Customised Audio Applications

    Dear Waze Support Team

    I would like to include the audio application "Neutron Music Player" to my Waze.
    If it was possible to customise application like these by allowing access to have them included.
    This application is the only music application I use on any device platform.

  17. [Re-add] "Plan a Trip" option when selecting a location's options.

    Hi; I used this feature a lot and now it's gone unless i start navigating to the location and hit the "show more" option. Why make us go through this extra step to do something we've been doing using the app for years? It seems to me to have been a completely unnecessary change.

  18. Big "stop Waze" button

    Sometimes (often) you just want to stop and close Waze. But you have to go through menus, which is DANGEROUS while driving. There should be a big readily-visible X on the main navigation screen. Or alternatively, a big readily-visible MUTE button.

  19. Good navigation only, do not patronize your users

    Please stop showing messages and alerts saying things like “turn on your headlights” or “ drive with attention, requiring users to press OK” User are not children that need to be raised. Just keep on giving us excellent navigation, nothing else. Come on WAZE, you can do it
