  1. Heads up Display (HUD)

    make an heads up display icon so that the user can place it on their dash and the reflection will show up on the windshield.. for night time driving whee it is safer to stare closer to the road versus looking down...other apps use this idea but they dont have the GPS ability..it will set waze apart from all other GPS systems..and make it look extra cool!

  2. Please offer an ad-free version of Waze.

    I'm pretty sick of seeing Taco Bells, Ramada Inns, and Smart Water pop up on my map. I'd pay up to $5 for a version of Waze without advertisements.

  4. Please provide an option to turn off the "car stopped on shoulder" warning.

    This is the most common warning yet doing nothing more than distracting. People stop on shoulders for few minutes all the time so why do I need to care unless I am planning to drive on the shoulder?? Turning off road hazards does not help.

  5. Make waze tolerant of intermittent network connectivity

    Waze relies on a network connection when in use. Many areas I drive in have poor or intermittent network connectivity. Please make the Waze client more tolerant of poor network connections by caching more data of the surrounding map and allow journey data (including new roads) to be cached on the client and uploaded at a later time. Not all areas can rely on good 3G/UMTS network connectivity

  9. disable popups

    Please provide the means to disable popups. I like the flags. The popups block half the screen, are irrelevant, and recenter the map.

  10. iOS version - Please add the display of the maximum speed limit.

    The user should always see the maximum allowed speed, so he won't exceed it.

  11. Ability to increase font size.

    Those of us who see distance fine but need reading glasses could use the abolity to increase street name and POI size. It's one if the reasons why I don't use Waze as often as I'd like to.
    Many thanks

  13. Home and Work favorite should have "use current location" to add, not just search for address

    This favorite is great. But it should have a "Use current Location" button to add your Work and Home. Searching for an address it will not show exactly where the house is, in this case in Ecuador, if it's a new home or not on the database.

  14. route overview

    Please add an option to see either a birds-eye overview or a turn-by-turn list (or both?) of the route Waze is taking me on.

    Sometimes I *know* I want to avoid a particular road. So when Waze plots a route for me at the start, I can review the proposed alternate routes and choose one. But if I need to deviate from that route to make a side errand maybe, Waze will recalculate my route on the fly, going back to its #1 preferred route. If I'm not paying close attention, this sends me back over to the road I…

  15. Apple Watch app

    I would like an Apple Watch app that shows you turn by turn directions on the watch. The watch app should also allow you to enter in events such as road closures, cops, etc. You should also add a reroute button thay quickly reroutes you through another route in the event of a road closure or blockage on the current route.

    I love Waze but it needs a Watch app. I have been using Apple Maps because of its watch app and I can't explain on this forum how nice it is to see the next turn on your watch.

  16. turn off photo request at destination

    The "add photo" when you reach your destination is annoying, and unnecessary. Please give an option to disable.

  18. Create lane assistance like Tom Tom.

    I have iPhone 5 with iOS 6 and as its a bigger screen and faster chip I think waze should create lane assist like Tom toms. This would be big but could be completed by wazers on editor for points, it would soon catch up. Lane assist can tell you which lane to use for a direction.

  19. Favorites in iOS widget

    It would be awesome to see more than just work and home in the iOS widget. I would like to see my favorites listed as well with the same functionality offered for home and work.

  20. Siri integration

    Not sure if it's possible, but if there is an API to integrate with Siri to make navigation via voice commands that much easier.
