    Why on F earth should a navigation decide to start a route without my consent? WAZE has made me lost 5 rides while I am driving for Lyft. While I think I am driving to pick up my rider, the passenger calls me and complains that I am driving away, or I get a sudden cancellation by a client and I realize I was not driving toward their location. Why should such a high tech app be so dumb? Don't you think that people will select their home or office destination on their own if it's in favorites? Why does…

  2. Event Broadcasting

    It would be great if you could add a feature for users to temporarily mark and area for an event and broadcast or share with friends and family or make it temporarily searchable so people can find the location. Especially for places that are not labelled eg labelling my house Tini’s House for a day for a wedding event.

  3. Recurso para congelar rota

    No Rio de Janeiro temos muitas áreas de risco, sempre antes de de iniciar o trajeto analiso a rota sugerida e verifico se não há risco porém, muitas vezes por conta de trânsito, o waze recalcula a rota e dirigindo não consigo verificar se a rota recalculada é ou não segura. Mediante exposto, sugiro uma função de CONGELAR ROTA, com isso sempre seguirei pela rota inicialmente escolhida e verificada. Sugestão baseado em medidas de segurança.

  4. Lunch time

    Dear @waze thank you for your work. I have a suggestion: could you add a voice asking “Is lunch time?” When a driver do not follow the way and goes to a restaurant. And when the app detect movement again, ask: “do we continue traveling?” Thanks again.

  5. Editor-set time penalty on a segment

    Waze currently routes by finding the fastest route, considering both the expected travel time and certain penalties. For example, navigating onto a private road adds a 2-hour penalty to the route, effectively forcing travel around that segment unless there is no other route.

    My suggestion is that all segments have a Penalty attribute that editors can set in WME. Used thoughtfully, this penalty attribute could give the routing engine a nudge away from areas where, based on editors' local knowledge, traffic should generally not be sent.

    For example, if all the segments into a residential neighborhood were assigned a 5…

  7. While browsing, if I have to report something on my way, but at that time I have no connection, waze does not send that report

    While browsing, if I have to report something on my way, but at that time I have no connection, waze does not send that report, but in the car moving in the territory happens to have no signal for so minute. It would be useful for waze to memorize that report, to send it as soon as the signal returns. Obviously in a short period of time, if within 5 minutes, the signal is not returned, the same will be automatically discarded. It would be very useful to be able to make even reports of danger if that area does…

  10. Track parking garage exit and use when GPS isn't available.

    Waze always tries to start me off a block or two away, and in downtown rush hour traffic, this is useless. I'm always going to exit my parking structure the way I came in.

  11. Addresses should be closes your area and should be listed first

    When typing in an address the options list should pertain to the area your in, for example if i’m in Venice Beach CA when I type in Broad Street, the Broad Street in New York City should not be listed first. It should go off the location you are in at the time.

  12. Sound check and select way

    1 - It would be nice to have a "test audio signal" when you open the app. Sometimes when I start using the app I´m not sure weather the bluetooth audio connection is working in the car until I hear (or not hear) the next direction.

    2 - Suppose you stop on a shoulder or are parked on a two way street. You start Waze and select your destination. Waze will asume you are going in one direction. Many times you are going the other way and you have to wait till Waze recognizes it, recalculates and makes you go…

  14. I'm constantly getting ''Routing Server Timeout'' when I want to calculate a long route (in my case, 1050 KM). Could you please fix this?

    Could you please fix this? I'd love to add more information as needed, but this is the first time that I'm using this website so I don't know if this will be possible. The route does cross a few country's though.

  15. Accessibility

    The company may be available for complaints, while you brag that your costumer service is comfortable and easy in reality you do not handle complaints properly. I've been trying to change my business's path in your application because the current path is not accessible and even dangerous, but we get no treatment whatsoever. We're very disappointed of your customer service

  16. Change your mapping for Astros day games.

    You need to change the route from Minute Maid to Chartres onto the freeway. A change of having cars move west from Minute Maid to alternative routes to freeways will free up traffic especially for day games such as today. The games get over during rush hour traffic and causes huge traffic jams.

  19. INFO on very recent speed limt changes

  20. I'm using Waze on an in-car Pumpkin Android stereo. It goes well, except it has a lot of trouble understanding my voice if the radio is play

    I'm using Waze on an in-car Pumpkin Android stereo. It goes well, except it has a lot of trouble understanding my voice if the radio is playing. Can a setting be added that will mute/reduce volume of other audio outputs while in listening mode? Activating Google voice input is an example of how it should be.
    Thanks.
