  2. volume control

    Unable to control the volume of Waze when taking a phone call. This results in Waze shouting at me. Waze should be able to drop down a minimum of 3db, when taking a call.

    Right now, the only way around this is to use another app and adjust media volume. It is rather dangerous to be messing with another app, while driving.

  3. Configurable sound outputs in Android App

    Currently, the Android App is working in an unsatisfying way:

    In the Settings menu, under Sound, I've enabled the option to play sounds using the phone's speaker.
    When I plug in my earphones in my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S6) I expect all sound to be diverted to the earphones, not being played in the public speaker.

    Waze does not behave like this. It plays the sound in the speaker regardless of the cable.

    My request is to let the user configure, in detail, where the sound should go.

    Output sound to:
    [ ] Speaker/headphones
    ( ) Speaker OR headphones …

  4. Add multiple widgets for different addresses

    It would be great if I could add a widget for a specific address. Like the Google Maps Directions widget, it's a 1x1 widget that asks for an address and clicking that starts navigation to the specified location.

  5. Set-up - changing country

    Not an idea as much as a question. How I change the country if I picked the wrong one in the beginning? This app is useless with current setting and I can't seem to change it.

  6. Update reporting location

    It would be great to mark where the report is, example, after observing a police speed trap, we should be able to mark where the trap is. Now Waze assumes it is right where I am when making the report, but that is not accurate.

  8. Set existing favorite as "Home" or "Work"

    Right now, you can only set "Home" and "Work" by searching for an address. Most of the time, New Zealand (and I'm guessing other international addresses too) do not return an accurate result.

    The work around is to create another two favorites called home and work that are based off GPS position and use those.

    As a user, it would simply make sense for Waze to allow me to set a favorite as my "home" or "work".

  11. 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:

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. keep Waze always on top

    After android 10 upgrade option "keep Waze always on top" is gone.
    Please re-enable this very useful option back.
    It's not safe for users go back to the phone after a call and reopen waze

  20. 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
