  1. 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

  2. put favorites in alphabetical order automatically

    When you add a favorite place it should put it in alphabetical order so you can easily scroll down to find your destination

  3. 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.

  4. Dashcam

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

  5. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
