  1. Add Electric Charging station location info.

    As as EV driver, it would be nice if electric charging station locations was built into the app so I don't have to go to yet another app just for this info. The data is widely available from here

    http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_locations.html

    and here

    http://www.plugshare.com/

    and here

    http://www.chargepoint.com/

    One problem is there is not one site that has all the info, so I'm forced to check all three. Having all this data within Waze would allow me to stay inside the app without having to leave it.

  2. Add pause option for stops

    Add pause option to client, that could be activated when stopping by at a gas station or other places, so that heavy traffic is not indicated. It could unpause automatically when the car start moving

  3. New Report options

    Please add following option for reporting:

    Hazard -> Weather -> Ice On Road - REALLY important in my country

    Hazard -> Weather -> Flooded Road - also REALLY important

    Hazard -> On road -> Road Closed ahead - this could be abused, so should be discussed in function

    Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Curve - most are marked by road signs but driver could choose to get extra warning from Waze! for example it would really help when visibility is poor!!

    Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Intersection - maybe Black Point (a point where a lot of accidents…

  5. Add friends without facebook

    Why am I forced to use facebook in order to add friends to Waze?? I don't use facebook, 75% of the world's population does not use facebook at all (and more with every day). Is keeping fb afloat Waze's most important purpose?
    Anyway, I don't want facebook friends on Waze, I want Waze friends on Waze and facebook friends on facebook, don't try to mix a driving app with a social network.

  7. "EV Charging" instead of "Gas Stations"

    You can already tell Waze that you're driving an electric vehicle... so why do I still see "gas stations" as an option? Google Maps already has EV charging station POIs - let us select "EV Charging" instead of "gas stations"!

  8. Mr. T's Voice

    Mr. T's voice would be truly amazing and esp popular. My bet is you would get addl users just for going there.

    "Turn Now, Sucka!" "Rerouting, I pitty you fool"

    and an amazing easter egg for those going to the airport "I ain't gettin' on no plane!"

  9. Have the option of showing public EV charging stations.

    Have the option of showing public EV charging stations. As a EV car owner I have to toggle between my chargepoint and Waze app when driving to find spots to charge my car. Also make EV avatars for us electric car drivers :)

  10. Irish dialect voice

    Defects in machines speech can often be obscured by the machine speaking in a different dialect you speak. Irish are romanticized by Americans and this will be very popular Stateside.

  14. More Special Voices! Deadpool for example

    How awesome would it be to have Deadpool telling you what to do?! There hasn't been a special voice since C3PO and he would be a great one :) I love the special voices!

  15. EV mode

    I am driving an electric vehicle and have a few ideas:
    1. route for least hills
    2. fleet learn from other EVs to improve range
    3. Tesla already uses Google Maps -- integrate with their EV (API?) to get range and utilization (efficiency) data to improve commutes and feedback on battery state
    4. Allow users to manually set up their EV in the app and prompt for "did you get a full charge overnight" or "please update actual battery % or rated range estimate, currently 288 miles, actual?"
    5. Learn "destination charging" and "destination parking" for manual EV setup behavior…

  18. EV Cars

    It would be great to choose Electric Car instead of thermic car and to add automatically the EV Charging Points.
