  1. A real-time weather overlay - live radar maps for weather conditions along a planned route

    Why is a real-time weather overlay not available on any generally available GPS navigation app? This would allow us to see real time weather map data/weather conditions overlaid along our planned routes so we can decide whether to re-route, stop for a while, avoid hail/tornadic weather, etc. It seems that this should have been available along time ago. To me it would be a feature that I would pay for if necessary.

  3. Destination location

    If when navigating waze told you whether your destination was on the right or left side of the street would help. Also the lane assistant would be nice.

  4. Set screen rotation within app

    Add a display option to specify screen rotation behavior (e.g., normal, portrait, left, or right), so I don't have to change the system settings to keep Waze behaving the way I want. For example, I like having screen rotation for my photos and browser, but I want Waze to always stay in portrait mode (not rotating the display when I turn a corner).

    In Objective C, adding a preferred screen rotation behavior like this is very easy.

  6. Lockscreen Route View

    After using the new maps on iOS 6 I could only come up with a little amount of good new features the maps app has. The most helpful one is that the route you are following is displayed on our lock screen, so you can lock your cellphone to avoid people to use your phone while using the gps to get to a please, and also to save some battery. So adding this feature of showing the route on the iPhone would be a great idea, just by the fact that on the road you want to have the information…

  7. Allow a longer delay before voice prompts

    When using my iPhone with bluetooth handsfree kit, I miss the first word of each prompt while the kit detects bluetooth audio and mutes my radio in the car. Please increase delay between starting the announcement (or add a selectable option to do so) to overcome this problem.

  8. Allow for a Maximum Speed setting to be used for ETA calculations.

    Currently, ETA is calculated using the average speed of Waze users along a route. There are many, for various reasons, who do by choice or necessity drive below some maximum speed. For purposes of ETA calculation for a Navigation route, having the option of setting a MAXIMUM SPEED for the route will help those of us who drive below a given maximum speed see a more realistic ETA.

  9. Banner notifications

    I would be great if a banner notification would show if the app was running in the background and a turn was approaching. Apple maps does this, and if Waze did it, there would be no reason to use Apple maps ever again.

  10. Display current location GPS Coordinates and share them with friends

    when it comes to navigation gps coordinates play an important role as it pin points the location you want other's to know if all else fails, like street names and landmark. Everything will change but not gps coordinates

  12. Toll roads

    When entering in a destination, please put the toll roads option there instead of in the settings. I am a driver in New York City. All day long, I would need to go into settings and check/uncheck toll roads. When I drive a passenger, of course, all the toll roads are taken, but when returning, I avoid as much as possible. Please change the tolls feature to somewhere when entering in the destination. Thank you

  14. Add DUI check point report button

    Add a DUI check point alert, report button that is seperate from police reports. This can be linked with online area reports plus waze drivers can report. But it would help if could say which direction on the street the checkpoint is set up on.

  15. Option to automatically disable WiFi

    When transitioning from WiFi to 3G or vice versa, Waze often loses a connection and becomes useless, requiring us to restart the app. I imagine this would be a problem for anyone who drives by a wireless network that they use often (home, work, school, etc.) This could be avoided by giving the user the option to automatically disable WiFi connections within Waze. This option would prevent users from having to disable WiFi before starting Waze every time.

  16. Place Photos

    To report a Place via the client, the user is required to first take a photo before entering any details.

    This process should be changed as it:


    • discourages Wazers from adding a Place if it is dark/raining or other factors prevent them from taking a satisfactory photo, and;


    • results in ineffective photos (blurry, dark, inappropriate) being added which do not fulfil the intended purpose of assisting other Wazers to identify the Place.


    Making Photos optional when adding a Place, and adding the ability to upload from the Camera Roll/Computer/etc, would improve the Waze map by enabling Wazers to add Places…

  17. Randy Marsh (South Park) navigation voice.

    Hi, if you could make a Randy Marsh from South Park navigation voice, it'll be one of the very few things you could do, to improve Waze.
    Thank you for one of the best apps/navigation service I have ever seen :)

  18. Zoom button in landscape orientation

    The zoom button doesn't appear in landscape orientation, just in portrait (when users tap the screen). It appeared in Waze's old look, but with the update (some monts ago), developers made it disappear, I can't guess why. Please, bring it back in landscape orientation.

  19. Dash Cam

    Please consider adding a dash cam option. I use a LifeProof case and suction mount. The camera could work as a dash cam.

    I would suggestion a 5 minute (or settable time length option). It could cycle through as a loop so the memory is not used up. An option of telling Waze to load up a clip then start a new loop would work well. Also, you could have this option start with motion and stop after a pre-assigned time after motion stops (so it does not stop at lights, drive-thru, etc.).
