  2. That the expected arrival .... o'clock.

    Dear developer!

    Fuckit a very long time I use the application, is extremely proud of.
    My question would be:

    I often use this application so that it runs in the background and the display is turned off.

    It would be helpful if certain point of time as the application is expected to announce the time of arrival.
    Not too often to be annoying, but it can be switched off, this option could also be an option.

    I think that the destination is entered after the text greeting when the program thanks and good wishes your way, announce to the expected…

  3. Aide aux usagers

    Serait-il possible d'ajouter une option lorsque nous sommes en difficultés ou avons besoin d'aide sur la route. Exemple: une personne fait une crevaison mais aurait besoin d'aide pour installer la roue de secours aux abords d'une route à laquelle les gens ne peuvent pas arrêter l'aider en la remarquant trop tardivement. En sachant d'avance, les gens pourrait venir en aide plus fréquemment.

  4. U TURN BUTTON

    Hello guys ! I work as an Uber driver in London, and I do many u turns . It takes a while, sometimes, untill the gps system recognises that . I think a U TURN button will be more than useful , if it will work in the background permanently and ready anytime to be pushed :) What do you all think about this ?

  6. I think having a weather radar and/or show weather warnings would be helpful.

    I think having a weather radar and/or show weather warnings would be helpful. Many times I have been driving and hear on the radio about storms or heavy rain and if I could see these on the map it would give me the ability to either exit the highway or detour around it.

  7. Real Estate Broker Service

    I am a realtor-What if you did a pay service to brokers that they could plug in the Home Tour each week. Different cost scales-
    1. Level One- Waze provides service but is allowed to advertise
    2. Level Two- Paid service with no ads.
    3. Level Three- Paid service, but the realtor/broker can do own advertising/information that they provide for the tour.

  9. Use the accelerometers from the smartphones to get data of the pavement conservation.

    Like a small seismograph, the app can use a smart algoritm to monitor the quality of the pavement. This data can be used an accessed by user and can be sold to the government, mayors and engineering company's.
    You can make money using it. Send me some. Thanks a lot and good luck.

  11. Add an option to select a certain turn from which waze will start talking/turn silent

    Sometimes I want to start talking only from a point further on in my navigation(because I know where to go until that point).

  12. Optimal location for meeting

    Optimal location for meeting
    The purpose of my idea is to allow few people who arrived from different locations to meet in optimal location/s ( eg. Pub , restaurant …etc.) , optimal location means time take to arrive to optimal location will be more or less the same for all the people.
    I got this idea due to long discussion I manage with my friend every time we want to meet and each of us arrive from different location

    Few guidelines / comments regarding algorithmic:
    - Flexibility is required to allow to enter as much as possible number of people…

  13. Problems with road hazard

    In my country, after the winter snow, appears big holes in the road. So, everytime when i use "Waze" on the same place i must put the "Hazard - -> groapa (in romanian language)". And the next day, the same thing again. It must be an option to mentain that "hazard" until is fixed (one week, one month, etc), and a user to correct the problems.

  14. Demonstrations ahead

    For the safety of the demonstrators, and drivers, please allow Waze users to indicate demonstrations ahead. Goal is to have users avoid demonstrations to reduce and or eliminate traffic related injuries due to demonstrations.

  17. Advise distance to next speed camera - on main display - could be miles away

    Rather than *just* alert me .3 of a mile away, why not tell me "miles to next speed camera" - so I might know "on the current route, I've 10 miles to the next (known) speed camera - helpful!

  19. Removing C3PO

    Please tell me how to remove the C3PO voice and revert to the original. This is really getting on my nerves. This is a lesson in how to screw up a great app. It should be a configuration option. Bad Google!!

  20. Idea that improves exponentially your application

    I am a user of the application and I use this app almost daily.

    Recently it got an idea that improves exponentially your application and will increase very much user interaction with the application and will further increase the safety of drivers who use the application while driving .

    My idea will improve :

    - The accuracy of reports ( police , hazards, traffic congestion , accidents ) . My idea will enable users to accurately indicate the location (accident, crowded room , threatening)
    -will greatly increase the number who will report traffic jams , police, accidents, danger ( all…
