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

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

  5. Remove Waze adding contacts to Phones

    My phone is plagued with hundreds of contacts created by Waze that cannot be deleted or edited. So when I search for my mom in Contacts on my phone, she has mulitple Waze contacts that keep showing up. It really clutters my Contacts.

  7. When I take a call when using waze, after the call ends I get the lock screen instead of goign back to waze.

    When you recieve a call when using waze, after the call ends you get the lock screen instead of goign back to waze. it should go back to the map screen.
    Also, there sould be a button to get to the dialer without leaving waze.
    Other than that - great app. keep up the good work

  8. Correct Multi window (currently pauses)

    Can you please allow waze to work correctly in multi window mode.Android 7.1.1 if you have Waze open in a multi-window configuration, it wouldn't actually work as expected. As long as it had focus and was the last app you interacted with, Waze would work as expected, updating your location and orientation on the map. But if you interacted with another app in multi-window, Waze would stop updating until you go back to it.

    Similar issue with Google maps which just got fixed:

  9. alertar una "zona peligrosa"

    Siempre uso esta app y el otro día para desplazarme al otro lado de la ciudad seguí la ruta que me indicó Wazw pero en el camino me dí cuenta que no habían carros ni gente por la calle que manejaba y era porque estaba en una zona muy peligrosa de mi ciudad....menos mal reaccioné a tiempo y salí de la zona lo más rápido posible. La aplicación debe tener una alerta de "Riesgo" o "Zona Peligrosa" para no exponer a los usuarios a poner en riesgo nuestra "integridad física".Gracias

  10. Ability to select different text scale.

    The map screen seems designed for lower resolution phones. When used on Galaxy S4 the text is too small to read. Suggest adding a scale option.

  11. Better 'ok Google' voice control

    Since its simple enough to configure Google to auto-listen for 'ok Google' and its voice recognition is much faster than the three-finger touch version in Waze, could Waze implement a full set of commands for the 'ok Google' interface?

    Examples:
    * Okay Google, Navigate home with Waze (obvious)
    * Okay Google, Send alert police with Waze (sends notification)
    * Okay Google, Add stop, coffee with Waze (opens the add-stop interface with a search result for 'coffee')
    * Okay Google, stop navigating with Waze (stop current navigation)

    Better touchless controls should be a major priority and the Android voice system is…

  13. Increase visibility area in landscape mode.

    While using waze on my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Note 3), the device is on its side. I like to see the map in landscape mode. With the new update (version 4.0.0.2 installed) any warnings and the display of the names of streets COVERS a big part of the map. I suggest to enlarge the área of the map shown in landscape mode for smartphones at least.

  14. Use contacts

    When suggesting Waze to people I know, why can't I just select them from my contact list? The Android contact list is also a great way to find groups. Please support it.

  17. Enlarge Speed Limit Sign on Android Auto mode

    First, thank you for a truly remarkable navigation app!! And, for the new "Speed Limit" feature, especially when using Android Auto!"

    A suggestion for improvement:

     Please consider increasing the size of the Speed Limit sign. I find it very hard to see and with all the screen real estate available there should not be any reason not to. 
    

    Thank you for your consideration of this idea and keep up the great work!

  18. Add average speed zone indication on screen to Android auto

    In Android auto the average speed zone is announced by voice but there is no indication on screen like in the "normal" waze. So you don't know how long the zone is and if you respect the speed.

  20. Parrot Asteroid Updates

    There is a Waze app for the Asteroid but it needs more updates, support and needs fixes because for example it still has the old design, clicking on the microphone makes it crash, the widget doesn't works and there might be more problems. So please release more updates.
