  1. Take advantage of AMOLED screens

    AMOLED screens have the capability to reduce battery life when used correctly.
    When a user either selects Night Mode or Waze automatically selects Night Mode, please change the background to solid black instead of dark blue. This will greatly reduce the amount of LEDs being used by the screen, thus saving battery life.
    Or if a users wish to keep the dark blue background, have an option to select "Dark Night" mode.

  2. Activate "picture in picture" (PIP).

    Activate "picture in picture" (PIP). With Gmaps you can have the map superimposed on another application

  3. Option to upload a picture previously taken instead of just taking them from within the client.

    I took a picture of an accident the other day. When deciding to report it to Waze right as I was passing it, I wanted to attach my picture but couldn't. Since I had just passed it, I also couldn't take a new picture.

    I think the option to attach a picture stored on the phone would be very useful.

  4. return or reverse route option

    I would like to see a return or reverse route option. When I use waze to go somewhere new from work or home then want to return to my starting point, Waze never takes me back the same way I came sometimes taking me way out of my way or getting me lost. I have used other navigation apps that have this feature and it is very helpful.
    Thanks
    Michael

  5. Integrate support for KML files into the app

    Add option to import favorites from a KML file (talking about 1500+ points of interest). Only reason today I'm using iGo instead of 100% waze is the option to use KML files.

  7. Search for wazer / share / navigate

    It would be great to have possibility to search for a wazer using its pseudo...
    We can imagine to ping it, locate it and navigate to it !
    We can also imagine a new entry in setting like "Permit my location on ping" on/off (so we can preserve personnal life).

  8. Allow the use of bluetooth controls while Waze is in the foreground.

    When Waze is running in the foreground, my bluetooth controls don't work. So I have to do a whole bunch of on-screen gymnastics just to skip to the next track in my queue. This is potentially dangerous while driving. I should be able to use the button on my steering wheel. (It works fine when Waze isn't running.)

  10. Android Bluetooth

    I just changed from iPhone to Android and used waze frequently on my iPhone. I had set up my blue tooth in my car so that when waze wanted to report or tell me directions it would cut in like a phone call, do its thing, and then music back on.

    Android doesnt offer this capability.

    I suggest making the apps the same. Make it possible for us Gallaxy S3 users to play over Bluetooth to our car sterios.

  14. Variable notification distances for hazards/police

    Similar to how the zoom is variable based upon speed, I would like to see the notification distance for hazards/slow downs/etc. be variable. The faster you are traveling, the further ahead the app would notify you.

    When traveling at, say 35 MPH, 600 feet is probably adequate for most alerts. When traveling at 65-70 MPH, you will fly by the hazard before Waze can get the alert spoken.

  15. bigger speedometer for riding motorcycle. it's just too small to see when you want to just glance down to speed check

    I use my gps on my phone as my speedometer for my motorcycle. When you only have a second here, or a second there to check speed, it needs to be big enough to see. You guys make a great app!

  20. More obnoxious speed limit warning

    Sound when exceeding speed limit by set amount is a great option, but very easy to miss the warning. Instead of a short beep, Please add an option to select the sound, option to repeat sound until under set speed overage, and a flashing screen or other obnoxious ongoing visual warning. This would have saved me a ticket and be very beneficial as no other app does this.
