  1. Have music control buttons on the UI or as a fly-out.

    Have music player interface buttons in the UI. I use my phone for entertainment and NAV guidance. Having to switch between is a pain.

  2. Shipping Locations: Optional Photo

    By submitting via a local application, make mandatory the address location of the fill and make sending the photo an optional, because sometimes we have the time and calm to report when we got inside the place, or parked in a location that does not have the ability to send the photo of the facade, or is night, it's raining etc ...
    This prevents photos "nothing", interior or wrong.
    Thus, passing the place, you could have an option to skip the photo, in the address field, making it mandatory.

  3. samsung's car mode

    Could you make Waze an option to set as the default navigation app and have it so it can be loaded into Samsung's Car mode. Currently can only use Google Maps and another Samsung app. Would much rather have waze be the default navigation app.

  4. 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.

  6. Custom Alert Notification Sounds

    Add the option to set specific sounds from the phone's notification sound files for specific alerts. e.g. set a specific notification sound for the over speed limit alert

  7. Long distance routing

    I use Waze frequently around town and short trips, its GREAT! I also travel longer distances and Waze will not allow me to setup a route for those trips. Google Maps does, so it is certainly possible. Id love to be able to use Waze for this. Currently I run both simultaneously but switching back and forth while driving is dangerous.

  8. Android Auto app without head unit

    Please update Android auto functionality to include those of use just using the Android auto app on our phones and not through a vehicle head unit. I would love to finally be able to use Android auto, as I have been waiting for Waze to be supported, but I don't have an Android auto head unit.

  9. App2sd support for waze android-version

    Android-based mobile phones have started to get 2.2 (FroYo), which brought support for moving applications to SD card. Since Waze is quite a big application (~6 mb for me), it would be really good to be able to move it to the memory card.

  10. Android Auto Waze: Navigate to Contacts

    If I use the regular Android Waze app, I can search for contacts and navigate to their address. If I use Android Auto Waze, contacts are not returned in the search. This would be an incredibly useful feature, as my customers I need to visit are all in my contacts.

    I am using Waze 4.27.0.1 in Android Auto mode with Ford Sync 2.2.

  11. Offline Usage

    I really liked your app and interface, but unfortunately I deleted my account as it does not work offline.
    I wish you had the option of using it offline as HERE We Go maps does. I know real time traffic and updates would not be available, but the directions would still be.
    Maybe look into this and I, and I believe others, would come back/join.

  12. More info in notification text (e.g. ETA, distance to destination, etc.)

    A lot of time I have waze in the background and just listen for audio reports of hazards, etc. However, I also like to know my ETA. I think it would be useful to put the ETA, and perhaps other information, in the persistent Android notification. Right now it just says "waze ... return to waze" which isn't really useful. If the ETA were in the notification, I could check it without having to open the app, and then go back to whatever else I was looking at.

  13. A minha ideia é que em vez de aparecer a bandeira do posto no aplicativo, colocar para aparecer o nome do posto. Seria mais fácil.

    É que quando colocamos para atualizar os preços dos posto na hora da procura só aparece a bandeira em vez do nome.
    E isso dificulta um pouco para saber qual posto ele se refere.

  15. bikes and disable people

    1-you can include the draw of BICYCLE inside MY WAZE, togheter with the other car's, because sometimes i use waze riding my bike.

    2-include the design of a DISABLE PERSON over a car draw, to tell to the other wazers that in that car there is a disable, so when that person needs help they already know whose the car is.

  18. moving waze folder inside Android/data

    Can you move the waze folder from memory's root to a folder like Android/data/com.waze)

    The reason is to keep clean the memory's root to makes easier for user to find important folders like DCIM, Downloads, Music and such on a glimpse. Also, folders in this form are deleted automatically upon app uninstallation, making it cleaner and may make it compatible with app2sd.

  19. Put a report button on the main screen of the Android UI

    The iPhone UI has a report button on the main screen... why make Android users go through the extra step of hitting Menu before going to the reporting screen? I would love to see a "report" button somewhere on the screen so it's one press, no fumbling around for the menu button.

    An idea would be to place the reporting button to the right of the user icon at the top of the title bar. There's quite a bit of unused space between that icon and the GPS/internet status icon.

  20. Allow color themes for the night mode

    While we can swap between various colors themes in the day mode, this is not available in the night mode. Unfortunately, the colors displayed on my mobile are not offering an easy navigation, as the difference in color between roads and the way to follow is hard to distinguish.
