  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.

  4. 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 …

  5. 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.

  7. הפרדה בין סוגי כבישי אגרה

    בישראל מספר סוגי כביש אגרה
    הצעתי לאפשר לנוסעים באיזה כביש אגרה להשתמש ובאיזה לא
    כביש 6 הינו כביש שימושי ביותר אבל הניווט בכבישי אגרה מחייב חישוב מסלול גם לכביש הנתיב המהיר

  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".

  10. Show compass at all times

    Show the compass at all times on Android. This is helpful for me to keep my bearings. Also useful for learning a new area and at night.

  11. 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.

  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.

  14. 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.

  18. Stop changing language when you cross the border

    I don't know if it's my phone or waze, but I'm taking a trip around Europe and every time I cross a border the voice commands change language. And it's not even the language of the country, I'm in Italy now and it switched to French. My native tongue is Dutch but I'm from Belgium so I speak a bit of French but it would still be nice just to keep the language I selected.

  19. 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

  20. 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:
