  1. Lane Guidance

    While using Waze on highways lately, I have begun to think that having the ability to see what lane becomes the off ramp would be great, especially in complex city interchanges.

    Portuguese: Estava usando o Waze em rodovias e comecei a pensar que seria ótimo ter a capacidade de ver qual pista pegar, especialmente em trevos complexos dentro das cidades.

    Spanish: Últimamente me he dado cuenta que al utilizar waze en capitales se hace muy necesario que waze indique cual carril de una calle, avenida o autopista, llega a ser una rampa, especialmente en complejos intercambios.

  2. Mute navigation during phone call.

    When making or taking phone calls using bluetooth, waze navigation prompts often interrupt me. The person on the other end of the line can't hear the prompt, but it means either I miss what they're saying, or my train of thought is interrupted mid-sentence.

    It would be useful for the client to auto-mute during a phone call.

    Thank you for this suggestion. As you may already know, Waze supports the option to mute during calls. To set that, go to Settings > Voice & sound and toggle Mute during calls.

  4. re-route based on upcoming traffic conditions / congestions

    While waze does show upcoming traffic condition on one's route it does not provide facility to automatically re-route the traveler around traffic congestion using surface streets or alternate highway/freeway.

    This is essential to optimizing waypoint ordering/priority:

    http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59223-client-how-can-we-improve-waze-on-your-phone-/suggestions/2360018-navigation-waypoints

    This ought be available in other-than a binary toggle (yes or no). While yes and no are suitable broad options, waze ought provider finer grained control of re-routing as it does now (faster or shorter). These should include

    (1) time windows

    (2) zones / areas

    (3) specific roads / highways / freeways

    (4) density of other Wazers

    (5) using either / both wazer…

  5. Allow declaring Toll Roads and the option to not navigate through them

    Waze wants to route me through a toll road every day and can't seem to find an alternate route until I actually drive it. I want to be able to avoid Toll roads, which means tolls roads need to be able to be declared in the editor.

  7. Add a traffic bar to map

    Have a "Traffic Bar" that appear in the routes screen overlayed on the main map.
    add a car to the bar that moves along with your journeys completion.
    So when you are 85 percent home, the car has moved 85 percent up the bar.

    Also when the Bar-Car (Maybe we should think of a better name) gets near an event an audible alert gets triggered, like when you near a Cop it could say “Oh cock, its the Rozzers!” Or just “Police reported ahead”) Or when you are near a obstacle on road you could be warned – e.g. “Johnny…

  8. show street name currently on

    It would be great to show the name of the street you're currently on, as well as that of the next turn. Also, show the name of the street you're on when not in navigation mode.

  10. Implement U-turn navigation instruction and ability to allow u-turns at intersection.

    In exUSSR countries it is a common practice to use u-turn. Traffic lights at major intersections may have special arrow to allow only left turns and u-turns. But currently Waze cannot use this feature to build optimal route.

  11. Conditional use of toll roads if saves more than set percentage of time

    I live in Northern Virginia (US) where we have a growing network of high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes paralleling existing roads. These come up as separate roads in Waze as they have their own on ramps and off ramps. Just to make them more fun, they have variable tolling so when traffic is more congested on the "free" lanes the toll lanes cost goes higher. The speed limit is also higher on the toll lanes so they always come out as preferred over the regular lanes for navigation.

    The current Waze app allows selection to avoid or not avoid toll…

  13. Avoid express lanes

    It would be nice to be able to turn off Express Lanes, with the same toggle switch as the "Avoid Toll Roads" option. I almost never have passengers in my car, and therefore cannot ever take the Express Lanes, but the app keeps directing me to them. Express Lanes also occasionally have different exiting options, so it can sometimes change your entire route and make you miss exits you needed to take.

  14. Calculate total tolls for each route option

    Some tolls are very high, others reasonable. Now I can only see if there are tolls or not, but not to decide on a reasonable toll road.

    In NY, this can be as much as $13 (George Washington Bridge) and $1.50 (Henry Hudson), for example.

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze calculates and displays toll prices in many parts of the world. To know when this becomes available in your country, stay tuned on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram

  15. - Include “Avoid hazardous area” as route options.

    We have seen many drivers get into slum areas that are really dangerous, with many episodes of people getting killed when entering on those areas in Rio de Janeiro, for example. I experienced this on other cities in Brazil and, sometimes, I really avoid using Waze because of this.

  16. Time Based Restrictions, can we make this happen guys?

    "No left turn between 7am and 10 am."
    "Do not enter between 3pm and 6pm."

    There are thousands of these signs in hundreds of cities all over the US. Can't we allow for local map editors to save time based restrictions into the map?

  17. Ukrainian

    Hello Waze,

    First off, you guys do a wonderful job. I know that in my community of Ukrianians, there is a need for Ukrainian spoken directions.

    If there is potential for it to happen, it'd be absolutely fantastic!

    Appreciate your work.

    Best regards,

    Slavik

    Great news! You’re able to choose Марічка (including street names) or Дмитро voices for voice directions. What’s more, you can record your own voice via the Voice recorder functionality – can be accessed in Settings – Voice&Sound – Waze voice – Voice recorder.

  18. Warning: Vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead

    Disable warnings for vehicles on shoulder. In high density areas there is always a vehicle on the shoulder. To the point that it will stop my internet radio every 5 minutes for another warning. This is especially annoying when the vehicle is 30 feet off the road and NOT a hazard. Yes, you can click "not there", but that in itself is a hazard every 5 minutes to click it off. It's a nuisance, a danger, and just not useful for many.
