  1. Location services change

    Please add an option for location services "when using waze" not just always or off, it really uses a lot of battery and data if its always on and if I switch off location services I have to activate it before using waze and I also have to restart waze before it works again.

  2. Enable waze to turn upside down on iPhone X.

    Enable the Waze app to turn fully upside-down on the iPhone X. Waze can turn upside-down on all other iPhones except the iPhone X. I think it has something to do with the 'notch' but that should be an easy fix by moving the bottom bar to the side when turned upside-down, or move the bottom bar up a little bit.

  4. Add LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) as preferable gas option.

    I am really missing the ability to choose LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) as my preferred choice on my IPhone. The price is about 0.70 Euro compared to about 1.60 Euro for regular gasoline (Benzin) in Germany.

    Stations are no longer rare. Actually there are about 6.000 in Germany and about 20.000 in Europe.

    Why dont you list more gas types from which I can choose 4 for the price reports?

  6. Compass

    Show a compass on the map so the driver can check bearing at a glance. If you are afraid of putting too many widgets on the screen use the compass to reposition or recenter your arrow or avitar instead of the crosshairs.

  7. Sync Waze with iPhone calendar

    Sync Waze with iPhone calendar so I know when to leave for appointment and events according to distance and traffic etc. With an option to have a 10 or 15 minute warning before you have to leave and and option to arrive at your location 10 mins, 5 mins or on time. This would be awesome!!!!

  8. Voltar a opção 'todos os alertas'.

    Essa era uma ótima fução do Waze e não deveria ter sido excluída. Na versão anterior tinhamos como ver todos os alertas e escolher a melhor rota. Sem essa opção eu não estou mais usando o Waze, pois o mesmo passou a ser um simples GPS sem nenhum diferencial. Dei a nota mínima na classificação do app.

  9. Why can't I report a car in my lane that's stalled?

    I currently can't report a stalled vehicle in the road...only on the shoulder.

  11. Route Preview Option

    You select a route, then press the "Route Preview" button. Map view will then zoom to your current location and travel down the selected route as if you were driving. The map pans down the route so that you can see all the things you will be dealing with along the way without having to scroll around the map with your finger. Adding a "preview speed (1x, 2x, 3x, etc)" and a "pause preview" option would be a great addition to this.

  13. Use builtin camera as in-car recorder (dash cam)

    Use the builtin camera to record the drive in the background whilst using the navigation. Would be good to have the video recording with GPS coordinates. So that you can navigate and in the background the dash cam is recording the journey.

  14. Categorizing Favorites

    With my Garmin, I can quickly look at my favorites list relative to my current location. ADVANTAGE: I'm hungry.....it tells me where my favorite restaurants and coffee shops are and how close. Makes it easy to return there when i'm in the area.

    UPGRADE: Ability to share your favorites list with a friend, so that they can choose a place and navigate there as well!

  15. Wazer tracking in real time

    It would be great to track in real time one or two people, with their consent, possibly by pinging them to agree, so you can see their movements at the same time with your own live. It would make it much easier to meet up with someone, etc.  The SpeedFreak App let's you track up to 4 people in real time and works quite well.

  16. Create and consider the type of vehicle

    Here in Brasil, the motorcycles can ride between the cars. This situation influences directly on the route information.

    For us, when we select a destination, the traffic information is not so important than for a car. The time is different too.

    If Waze consider the user´s speed during their navigation, our speed can´t be considered, cause we always ride at the maximum street speed, but the cars, most of times, are slower than us.

    If Waze can consider this type of vehicle, i think it can help too many users, like me.

  19. Provide a way to indicate that police are moving east,west,north or south.

    I can find no way to tell wazers that a cop is moving other than in the comment section. If we had a visible, hidden, and moving indicator (with direction) it would be better. Waze could maybe even reposition icon along direction of travel to estimate current position.

  20. compass direction

    The compass / direction -

    I really wish there was an option to show direction as text instead of the arrow.

    i.e. - N, NE, E, etc.

    Looking at the arrow still requires me to figure out where I am facing relative to North (up). I just want to know which way I am going _at_a_glance_ .
