  1. North = Up!

    PLEASE, for the Love of God, give us a preference that will keep North pointing UP on the device! i practically can't use Waze (tho i REALLY want to) because it keep spinning around on me - drives me crazy - i grew up with paper maps & north was always "up" - having it spin to the direction i'm driving is driving me bonkers! :-)
    aside from that, the app rocks!

  2. 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 :)

  3. Notifications when screen off, like Google Maps

    Google Maps has a very practical feature for travelers who frequently use the same route over and over: Turn your phone screen off, and you'll be notified whenever turns are coming up. If you know the route, maybe it's a long one and you just want to be reminded not to miss turns, it's really useful to have these notifications.

    In Google Maps, this notification feature extends really well onto Pebble watches, so your wrist gets a gentle vibration for each upcoming turn while the phone screen is off.

    Could Waze please raise turn notifications when the screen is off?

  5. Allow minimize or stay on top during incoming call in iPhone!

    Very annoying and dangerous to try getting the navigation screen back to front when a call is being received during driving. I know Android version has "keep Waze on top", unfortunately not on iPhone

    Thank you

  7. Waze "screen mirroring" capability

    Greetings, I own an iPhone 4S and I have also a 7" screen on my car. I also have the genuine Apple RCA cable, which I use to plug the iPhone into the RCA jack of my screen to watch videoclips.

    I was thinking, it would be AMAZING if Waze app could recognize when the cable is conected into the iPhone and asks if I want to mirror the ap on the conected screen. Waze GPS system is way better than my car's, and if it could be shown in the car's 7" screen would be certanily awesome. I wouldn't…

  8. Adding current location as a waypoint

    Is there a way to add ones current location (ie via long/lat) to be saved as a favorite? For example, the parking lot we use at the Citrus bowl doesn't have a "street address", however, it does have a "long/lat" address.

  11. 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.).

  12. Location services ALWAYS On

    I'm sure this has not always been the case as i've only noticed it recently but can you please sort the privacy settings on the next up date! I am having to manually turn them on and off as its killing my battery that you only have ALWAYS or NEVER as options on the location services settings. Sort it out!

  14. Use compass to know direction facing

    Use built in compass to work out which way car is facing when calculating best route answer -preferably during the route too.

    So for example, if I'm facing west when I enter my route, waze should not suggest driving east down the road to begin with. It should either recommend west or a u-turn followed by east.

  15. Add "Flood" to Hazard

    This will alert Wazers of impassable roads due to floods. An alert notice will help them find alternate routes for their safety and benefit. This qualifier can be added to either On Road hazard or Weather hazard. Can be both too.

  16. Overcast

    Would love to have integration with Overcast and other podcast apps with waze. It’s great to have Spotify but having the same integration with other podcast apps.

    The lesss distracted driving the better :)

  18. LOCATION SERVICES

    Please give the option in settings->privacy->Waze for "While Using App". I see and know that this is a big request and don't understand how this can't be implemented. Waze is one of the few apps that i have that run location in the background and i love to use wake but don't need it constantly on in the background. Please fix this.

  19. location when using

    It would be really nice if Waze could work in the background and not always have to access your location. Do like Apple Maps and Google Maps and access your location when using it, but still work in the background with navigation. With that, it would be nice to be able to see my navigation in the lock screen while getting directions so I can keep hands free while using the app
