  1. Please let us have the option to turn off THANK YOU notifications

    Please, please remove the constantly nagging. "Thanks" from the notifications. You're making it hard to want to use the app to report anything and turning being thanked into a punishment.

  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. 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. Voice Command to Say "Thank You" to Notifications

    Notifications by Fellow Wazers are really helpful. Waze should, accept THANK YOU voice Command and "Not there" Voice Command.
    "Pothole Ahead", Vehicle on Shoulder" are great notifications, however taking your eyes of the road to touch input the small ThumbsUP, is very unsafe.

  7. נא להגדיר שהאפליקציה תסמוך על תעודות האבטחה של המשתמש

    שלום,
    כרגע האפליקציה משתמשת במאגר תעודות אבטחה נפרד, ולא בתעודות המותקנות במכשיר.
    דבר שגורם שלא ניתן להשתמש באפליקציה כשמחוברים לרשת שדורשת תעודה משלה
    כפי שניתן לראות כאן:
    https://netfree.link/wiki/%D7%94%D7%AA%D7%A7%D7%A0%D7%AA_%D7%AA%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%93%D7%94_%D7%91%D7%90%D7%A4%D7%9C%D7%99%D7%A7%D7%A6%D7%99%D7%99%D7%AA_Waze
    לדוגמא.

    אפשר לפתור את זה אבל רק אם יש למכשיר גישת רוט.

    האם תוכלו להגדיר שהאפליקציה תסמוך עת תעודות המשתמש שמותקנות במכשיר כך שזה יאופשר לכלל המשתמשים?

    אני לא רואה סיבה שזה לא יאופשר.
    תודה

  10. toggle off carpool.

    Please find a way to toggle carpool option on or off. It is quite easy when checking your route or options available to pull up carpool by mistake and it adds a few extra seconds of distraction to get back to directions (safety hazard). I work for a limo company so obviously I cannot use the carpool option. Other than that I appreciate all the time that Waze helps me stay safe and save time

  12. 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

  13. Toll roads alert

    A great feature would be the possibility to keep toll roads enabled but receive an alert when a route includes that kind of road (toll road)

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  16. Allow a negative answer to carpooling

    I do not want to carpool. It won't work for me. The ONLY options that I have are to say that I do want to carpool now, or that I want to carpool later. I need to say 'no' and be done with it.
    Not to mention, I have been en route and the ad for carpooling obscured my screen. I think that's dangerous. Please let me say 'no' and enjoy a safe ride.

  17. 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…

  19. Please add Sirius XM app to list of integrated music players

    Any chance the Sirius XM app can be added to the list of music player apps that can be used within Waze? If functions almost identical to Pandora. Thanks in advance.

  20. 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.
