  1. Can waze add the option to users give some road alerts even when they are offline, and share this as soon the have signal back? Is often no

    Can waze add the option to users give some road alerts even when they are offline, and share this as soon the have signal back?

    Is often not sharing something in the road because I don't have 3G on my iPad at that moment. It should be possible to waze to keep the gps position and send it to the network when possible.

    Better could be to pass some police control and later set the correct position of the police alert.

  4. Support Pebble watch (getpebble.com)

    The Pebble is a smart watch with an SDK for Android / iOS. Being able to integrate with it would allow users to quickly report traffic instances without using the phone interface. Just click a button on the watch and it reports heavy traffic por example.

  6. VW (and other carmakers...) App Connect

    As many carmakers are working on solutions to connect smartphones to vehicles it would be a good idea to make Waze compatible with those systems. Personally I intend to buy a new Skoda (Volkswagen Group) and I had to learn Waze is not among the apps which can be mirrored to the new touchscreens in the 2015 models.

    On their pages Volkswagen puts it like that: "Smartphones are handy, always with you and for every situation there is a suitable app. With MirrorLink™ you no longer have to be behind the wheel without this practical tool. Simply connect your smartphone…

  8. Display interstate/highway shields on client map.

    Right now the live maps can display highway shields with limited functionality. Adding this ability to the client maps (and expanding its scope, as right now it is only partially functional) would really make it easier to orient yourself when viewing the map.

    It would be nice if it was an option, as well... so you could disable it (like you can disable road goodies or other things) if you don't want to view them.

  10. Integrate Amazon Music app

    Spotify is nicely integrated into the waze phone app. It would be nice to also add Amazon Music app for those that don't use Spotify.

  11. Store reports created offline for short period. I.E. Police reports and accidents, see comments

    I travel a lot in weak cell service areas on major interstates. I will see an accident or Police situation when I have GPS but not network it says sorry you can't report do it later. However it might be 5 or 10 miles down the road before I can then the event isn't in the right location. Suggest storing the location information along with the time so that when network returns it can be posted.

  12. Night Mode on all User Interface Elements

    When you're in Night Mode the map is, essentially, reversed in color; light things are dark, dark things are light. This is not true for any of the other user interface elements. Search, popups, reporting... all are very bright and very distracting. These interfaces should also be reversed, that is, dark grey backgrounds with light gray text.

  14. Arrival Time Should Reflect Destination Time Zone

    I live near the line between Eastern and Central time. I'd really like the estimated time of arrival to take time zones into account. Right now, my arrival time jumps up by an hour when I go from CDT to EDT and down an hour when I go the other way.

  15. Location services

    Under Locations in our phones Waze has to be set to Always or Never while apps such as Maps and Lyft has the choices of Never or While Using. I think waze should also only use or location services while we are using the app. We don't need Waze to be tracking our location and wasting our battery every second of the day but only while we are using the app. This can obviously be made possible. If Maps and Lyft allows us this common sense option, then Waze should too.

  17. Replace "accident" with "crash"

    The term "accident" implies that no one was at fault. This is an inaccurate word choice, unless you know for a fact that no one involved did anything negligent to cause the crash. Widespread use of the term "accident" implies that road injuries and deaths are unavoidable, and creates an environment where they are simply accepted as a cost of doing business, when in fact, there is a lot that can be done to prevent such carnage. The terms "crash" and "collision" are much more accurate, as they do not imply fault or lack of fault.

  18. Please open Carpool for Guatemala to reduce traffic

    Please open Carpool for Guatemala to reduce traffic

    Great benefits to bring Carpool to Guatemala: -

    - Reduce the amount of cars on the road during peak hour traffic (4 am-10am) and (4pm-9pm). At this time, it is blocked to the network and can take up to 3 hours to enter and leave the capital (Guatemala City)
    - Car ownership is prohibitively expensive
    - Public transport is risky and not reliable.
    - be environmentally conscious of the earth because they are more economical people in movement

    Help our little Country to be better and more responsible. Help to bring Waze…
