  1. Do not send a message to my in inbox when I'm "thanked."

    I don't want a message in my inbox when I am thanked by another user for a road report. Quick on-screen message? Fine. I hate seeing that notification that I have a message only to see 52 people thanked me for reporting the cop on the side of the road.

  2. Automatically sleep Waze when disconnecting from CarPlay

    Hi, can an option be added to automatically put Waze to sleep after unplugging it from CarPlay? I don't need Waze to remain active once I've reached my destination, and when I get back into my car I usually start it manually myself.

  3. mute/disable whatsapp notifications while waze is on

    Waze stops its navigation and/or voice directions when Whatsapp messages are sent. There should be a way of disabling such notifications so that Waze can do what it does best

  4. Additional reporting options.

    Two immediately spring to mind:
    1. when reporting a weather hazard, it would be great to be able to report "sunstrike".
    2. the only way to report a stopped car is as an object on the side of the road. The only hazards on the road are things like construction. I have had multiple occassions where I have come across a vehicle stopped on the road. These have not been an accident, rather they have been due to breakdown. An option in the "on road/in lane" category to advise of a stopped vehicle would be great.

    I love the app…

  6. Allow one-button reporting of the most common hazards. I suggest one-button for: a) car stopped on shoulder, b) police, c) hazard on road.

    One-button reporting would allow fast, safe reporting of the most common hazards without having to navigate menus. Today, reporting a car on the shoulder is a 5-button press navigation - hardly safe at 70 mph. I suggest one quick click, and it is reported.

  7. Please add "wind" and sleet as a hazard.

    Any chance you guys can add Wind as a hazard? Was driving on Hwy 152, and felt my car was about to take off.

    Also, I think sleet would be good add as well. Thank you.

  8. no thumbs down option anymore

    What happened to the thumbs down option? I only have 2 buttons- leave a comment or thumbs up. If the hazard is not there I want to be able to let other drivers know and did so by using the thumbs down.

  9. Pause audiobooks during Waze alerts

    I listen to a lot of audiobooks (via Overdrive app) while using Waze to navigate, when I get a Waze alert or prompt though Waze will talk over the audiobook rather than pause/resume it. It's very annoying and I often miss what the narrator is saying and have to back it up. I wish the audiobook could be paused while the Waze alert is given and then pick right back up again afterwards.

  10. Map Overview

    Please add a map overview so that you can see the entire route. I don't like having to scroll ahead all of the time to see the route. I know that you can see it written out, but I would like to see it on a map.

  11. Disable/option iPhone touch-rotating map

    When navigating with my iPhone I usually want to zoom in and out using the pinch movement as most apps use, but half the time trigger the touch to rotate map feature, which I never really need to use.

    My suggestion: Disable this (the map will still rotate when you are heading in a certain direction, which is all anyone should need it to do) or at least have an option to turn it off.

  12. Disable face proximity sensor.

    The face proximity sensor is enabled. Since I place my iPhone in the console of my vehicle, every time I move my hand down to perform an action, the display goes black. I have to gingerly reposition my hand before I can do anything.

    I suggest disabling the face proximity sensor while in an operational mode. If necessary, you can enable it right before going to a phone call (if not speakerphone).

    iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1

  13. The ability to say which side of the road a car is stopped on. Also have an option for car stopped IN the road.

    The ability to say which side of the road an object or stopped vehicle is. For example: animal carcass on inside shoulder. Or car stopped on outside shoulder.

  14. Show address in final navigation screen when approaching.

    I LOVE that Waze now accesses my Apple calendar to see my appointments & the time. SO very helpful, as Waze is my go to map app (I am an on the road sales rep). But I have to exit Waze & return to my calendar entry to see the exact street address I am looking for. The final navigation screen will have the name & phone number of the person I'm trying to visit, but not the address, the most important part. Really annoying!

  15. I do not like the new sleep feature! I want to be able to turn waze OFF! Please switch it back

    I like the old feature allowing us to turn waze off when we get to our destination, not the sleep mode. Can you please put back the option to turn off waze

  17. Disable POP-UPS while stopped

    Whenever I am at a red light or stopped in traffic, Waze keeps popping up messages from all over the place. They are not helpful to me, they are distracting. Especially when it is reporting things 10+ miles away. (I'm in the city, so 10 miles is a long ways)

    I looked though the menus and have tried disabling these screens but they are still appearing.

    I posted this on the forms, and there are several others sharing my frustration, so I hope this change can please be added to the next update.

  18. Slave GPS/GPS Sharing over personal hotspot.

    Have the ability to run the Waze as a slave on another device.

    When driving I have a mount for my iPads (mini and iPad3) and use the 'Personal Hotspot' on my iPhone to give them network connectivity. When it is in this mode I would like my iPhone to supply GPS data to either/both the iPads (they are wifi only so have no GPS data) In personal hotspot mode approximate location is given to the iPads but this only works well in city areas, in rural areas there is not enough data for the iPads.

    There are 2 possible…
