  1. report lane changes in yards not feet

    when distance is set to miles, small distances are reported in feet, yards is more commonly in use ( at least for significant distances of say 1000 feet (300!yards)) in uk

  2. Partner with Chrysler so Waze can be one of the apps displayed on the screen of the new Uconnect systems in 2013 Rams etc

    The new Uconnect system supports some mobile apps and I think Waze would be awesome to use on it instead of just merely hearing Waze through the speakers.

  5. Add option to avoid low bridges based on vehicle height.

    Low bridges need to be avoided. Need an option to route based on avoiding low bridges. Vehicle height or minimum bridge height could be used to route.

  6. "Do not disturb" - silence for safety

    There are apps that block or mute messages and calls that interrupt the driver. Though, One must be aware, remember and start these apps before every ride. I recommend Adding a "silence" option in waze setting. The option should allow to block calls,messages, FB etc. individually or all at once.

  7. Uso obrigatório de farol baixo em rodovias

    Além de um alerta via popup seria legal se o(a) assistente falasse "Você está entrando em uma rodovia, lembre-se de ligar o farol baixo!" Um aviso igual é com radar (Radar reportado à frente!)

  8. In states that use IPASS & similar toll systems, modify Waze to indicate that cash lanes or toll pass lanes are an option

    The app currently routes us to the cash lanes - it doesn't take into account that IPASS lanes (& similar state toll lanes) are an option; please change

  9. Street blacklist

    Unfortunately in some countries we face the reality of violence and sometimes the fastest route is not safe. So, my proposal is that we could have a "Street blacklist" in order to be able to add streets that we don't want to be in the route, preventing us to check all the route and try to find a new route every time or in a situation when we want a new route fast and during the route we notice that the navigation is going in the way that we don't want.

  11. Have a manual option to modify route of travel

    WAZE gives a route for fastest or shortest trip which is great in most cases . But could we give user's the option to take a less congested or more scenic route as a user's choice by allowing changes to the route instructions or on the map like Google maps with a drag and drop option.OR better yet allow import of Google saved maps into WAZE.

  12. Differentiate "dirt road" of "4x4 trail".

    "Dirt road / 4x4 trail" should be called "4x4 trail" only, and keep the same navigation capabilities as now, only to be allocated as such the badly damaged roads that only 4x4 vehicles are able to travel it.
    In the "street category" should be added a new type of segment called "dirt road", which would be passable streets for any vehicle but their ability to circulate them may vary due to various external factors such as weather. Because of this, they should suffer some level of penalty in the routing, and allows the "avoid dirt roads" in the application for…

  13. A Known Jamaican Guided Voice on Waze - In Support of a non profit, KiDz HuB Media

    Currently Waze has a number of voices for guided voice. However, there is no Jamaican Voice, though lots of Caribbean nationals living in the USA and Canada use Waze as a means to get around. I think i would be really cool to have a reggae artist like a Shaggy, Tessanne Chin, or Machel Montano as an option for guided voices. This could be a great way for Waze to also support or bring awareness to a non profit that one of these entertainers support/endorse.

    Our non for profit KiDz HuB Media Network's partnership with Estella's Brilliant Bus will serves…

  14. Automate road closure Report

    It is difficult to report road closures in real time - especially on a freeway - because of the approach speed and unexpected driving adjustment. If Waze inquired why I missed a turn/off-on ramp it would be helpful. This is similar to when Waze asks "you slowed down - are you in traffic?" If Waze notices that I missed a turn/off-on ramp it should ask "you missed a turn- was there a road closure ?" This way I can report later ( give me 60 secs) when safe. If I just missed the turn because I was distracted or chose…

  18. The new “road shield” symbol reduces text legibility

    New “road shield” symbol means the font size is reduced making it harder to read whilst driving. I’m a UK user. The road number is now shown in a box with a smaller font than it was previously. Please revert back to the previous, larger font size

  19. S-Turn penalties

    In case of traffic even light, some ways become impossible to cross, mainly ave. with more than 3 or 4 lanes.
    Proposal to include a S-Turn routing penalties in case of traffic in the crossing street.
    This will avoid routing in ways with less than 200m (safe length for lane change is S-Turn even with traffic).

  20. Expire events option

    Give a general or category specific option to delete/expire events. e.g. most crashes/accidents are cleared in 30 minutes or less, yet the event lingers in Waze for 2 hours or more. So let the user chose how old an event will be displayed.
