  1. walking mode button

    Have you thought about a walking mode button.So if you have waze on you don't get false data that traffic is at a stand still when you are walking.
    Many thanks Andrew warren

  4. Samsung Gear S2 integration

    I'd like Waze to integrate with the Samsung Gear S2, which is on the Tizen OS. Most particularly, I'd like vibrate reminders of upcoming turns. Also, navigation initiation and address lookup would be useful.

    I'm using the device with a Nexus 6 on Marshmallow.

  5. Make Waze continue running in background untill it is turned off

    I use my phone for more than just Waze when I'm driving. Waze does not consistently run in the background when I switch to control another app (even when I'm driving on the highway at 65 mph). I'd really like to see an option in settings to keep Waze active until I manually exit. Alternatively, how about an option that keeps Waze active as long as my phone is in the car dock?

  6. Tasker intergration

    Tasker is a automation system for Android based on profiles that contains states and actions.

    For instance when Tasker sees the bluetooth in my car it begins to reject most calls, reads texts aloud me, and sends a automated reply. Currently that reply just says I will get back to them when I reach my destination. Waze knows that destination and my ETA. I would like to send that in the automated texts. I would also like for Tasker to be able to tell Waze a destination. Using this info it would also be possible for Tasker to do events…

  7. I would love to see Waze on the Samsung Gear S3.

    As far as I can tell, the Gear S3 can be purchased with a Data plan via AT&T, so theoretically it would be possible to use Waze on a smart watch with both GPS and Data. I would absolutely pay for a smartwatch version of your app, as would many other people! Having my phone out to use Waze when commuting daily is a bit cumbersome, but using it on a smart watch just to keep an eye out for traffic / police would make me use it every time I step foot in my car. I truly hope you…

  8. Allow option to use device's TTS voice synthesis

    The Waze Android client has a decent sounding voice, but Android users can install 3rd party TTS apps. Please give us the option to choose to use the Android Text To Speech synthesis instead.

  9. Display address you're navigating to when you get near your destination

    Often times I get close to my destination and I don't remember the exact house number I'm looking for. It would be nice if when Waze prompts that you're nearing your destination, that it would display the address you put in to navigate to so you can look for the house number as you get close to your destination.

  10. audio alerts for everything

    It would be nice to have audio alerts for all activity in waze. If there is a traffic jam ahead alert me vocally, same for car on shoulder etc.

    I say this because I ride a motorcycle and am not able to view my screen (also it would take my attention from the bike). I would like to be audibly alerted of everything such as speed cams, cops, blah blah :)

  14. North up should be persistent between sessions

    I want to be able to use North up as default map orientation. This can be set manually in the client, but has to be specified every time the program is started. It would be nice if this setting could be persistent, or could be set in settings.

  15. Waze Support for the Parrot Asteroid

    The Parrot Asteroid is a great car stereo based on android, however the unique nature of the device limits it's online apps to those that specifically support it. Currently the Asteroid has no turn by turn navigation. Waze's powerful mapping and reporting features would greatly benefit users of the Parrot Asteroid and raise awareness for both Parrot and Waze.

  16. Using the smartphone's front camera for alert about driver's tiredness

    In Android there is a feature named "smart stay" which allows the smartphone to recognize, using the front camera, if the user is watching the screen (in order to turn off the screen when not in use) - see
    http://www.androidcentral.com/how-use-smart-stay-galaxy-s3

    I wonder whether it would be possible to create a similar function in Waze, that would recognize (by visually recognizing when the eyes close for longer than a fraction of second) and alert if the driver falls asleep. If this is possible (even partially), it can save lives.

    באנדרואיד יש אפשרות בשם "שהות חכמה" שמאפשרת לסמארטפון לזהות בעזרת המצלמה הקדמית…

  17. When reporting police / speed trap, offer "middle" or "median" instead of only "my lane" and "other lane" so both directions can be notified

    Many times police sit in the median and are watching both directions on a highway, a "middle" option for lane would be beneficial so both directions can be warned of a speed trap.

  18. Automatic start Waze when connect to car bluetooth (and turn off when blutetooth is off)

    Automatic on/ off waze when connect to paired bluetooh adapter.
    This is best way to have waze on when is needed in car.
    Leave the car - waze goes off.
    This bulid in feature have a Yanosik app (waze clone in Poland)

  19. What about electric cars

    Add gaz preference as: Electricity

    this would triggers the networks of CS [charging stations] (and/or connector type) to appear in the favorite company and display the CS.

    you could also ask what kind of EV and display CS accordingly (i.e. if Tesla, show only the tesla's CS and J1442 connectors; if a Nissan Leaf, DO NOT display the Tesla's CS and display CHAdeMO and J1442 CS) ...

    Lots to do... be the best for everybody!

    Love your app, but not with my EV :(
