  1. Retour d'experience en vu d'amelioration de l'appli WAZE apres 3 mois d'utilisation sur les routes avec un SAMSUNG GalaxyS2

    **** radar

    - afficher la limite de vitesse surveillee par le radar de vitesse
    - annoncer si depassement de vitesse et vitesse limite.
    - manque avertissement a l'approche des radars de feux rouges.
    - icone radar peu visible sur le plan il faudrait les metrent en surbrillance à l'approche
    (l'appli Glob fait tres bien tout cela sauf qu'il n'y a pas de navigateur !)
    (La communauté Glob est plus belge que Francaise)


    **** limitation de vitesse

    - afficher les limitation de vitesse sur la portion de route en cours de parcours.

  2. App radio One Compatibility

    Please update Waze to be compatible with Pioneer AppRadio One car stereos. This was one feature I really wanted and thought I'd be getting with my new car deck, I was disappointed to see it was only compatible with older versions.

  3. Categories on Save Favorites

    Dear Waze, i'm glad this maps much exciting to use and really fantastics for my navigation,

  4. Sound alerts

    I think that having a sound ringing before radar or police could help us. That's better than looking to the phone to see what's on infront. That's would give a safty driving and a secure alert.
    That's important for me
    I hope you'll do that.

  5. Option to use Bluetooth HSP or A2DP

    Waze uses bluetooth A2DP for navifation instructions. But a lot of car sets only uses bluetooth HSP. There are apps that convert A2DP to HSP but these apps always mute the car radio. So it would be great, if Waze can send navidation instructions via HSP to a bluetooth car set. So it will mute the radio, give the navigation instruction and then unmute the radio. I think that would be a big feature, cause google maps can't do this right now.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Routing overview

    I would like a routing overview option to easily access when driving for two reason:
    1: For longer routes to see were I am in the country.
    2: For shorter routes to have an overview of the traffic situations.

    This option could be a button directly on the map, maybe as an option to turn on/off from Settings or as an option in the pop up window where the mute, stop navigation, navigation list and recalculate route are.

  11. 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).

  13. 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.)

  15. 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.

  17. Add closure report to Android Auto

    There does not appear to be a way to report a temporary closure of a road due to an accident, etc. from within the Waze Android Auto interface. Please consider adding this feature.

  18. Add common objects to Hazard:Road

    To reduce the possibility of the user becoming a potential road hazard, update the Report:Hazard:Road option with a submenu so that we don't have to type out what's in the middle of the road. There is already an option to report cars stopped on the shoulder, but none to report cars stopped in lane, or tire treads, or deceased animals.

    It doesn't need to be fancy, just something so that we don't need to type, unless it's something really unusual.

  20. 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.
