  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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.)

  5. 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.

  8. 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

  12. 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.

  14. Sound alert more configurable

    it would be nice if you could add an option that you choose how far you get the alarm (500m , 1km, 2km before the spot)
    .. Even add a option that you choose when you get the alert (everytime, above the speed, never)

    And it would be nice if you make a sound alert for other report, not just the radar.. everything that we can choose to get the alart or not in settings.

  15. I would like to see an option to add altitude and temperature

    I drive in the mountains quite often and would like to see the current altitude and temperature change. This would be an option in the same section as the speedometer that you could turn them off.

  16. Dashcam

    Dashcam functionnality would be nice, keeping automagically the last 30 minutes of video. The start and stop should be automatic.

  17. Inclusão de recurso Desviar de rota

    Sugiro a inclusão de um recurso que possibilite aos usuários evitar determinado trajeto ou via, uma opção em que se possa marcar uma determinada rua, avenida, estrada etc onde o planejamento de rotas do aplicativo evitará ao programar a rota para o destino solicitado. Locais de difícil acesso, com muito buraco, ou em áreas consideradas perigosas poderiam ser marcadas pelo usuário e até mesmo repassadas a outros usuários que seguissem rotas semelhantes.

  18. 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. When the volume bar is dragged to zero, the navigation voice directions still lower the volume of my music. Please change this.

    I use the navigation, visually, but not the voice. As I can not find a mute button, I have instead dragged the volume slider all the way to 0.

    I then listen to music on my phone in the background through car speakers. Whenever there is a voice navigation queue, although the voice has no volume so I can't here it, waze still lowers the volume of my music for the duration of the direction, as such, my music seems to just lower the volume periodically which is rather annoying.
