  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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. adding "I'm a motorcyclist" mode

  6. Sound alerts before police and radar

    I think that having a sound ringing before radar or police could help us. That's better than looking to the phone to see what's on infront. That's would give a safty driving and a secure alert.
    That's important for me
    I hope you'll do that.

  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.

    Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze offers HOV routing for taxis. To change your vehicle type go to Settings > Vehicle type. There are currently no plans to add more HOV options.

  13. 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

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. can you put ukrainian as one of the languages

    ... i respond better by hearing the directions in this language. thank you

  17. 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.

  18. Alerta de farois ligados em rodovias

    Com a nova lei no Brasil que obriga o farol baixo nas estradas ainda que de dia, o waze poderia emitir um alerta para confirmar que os faróis estão acesos sempre que acessar uma rodovia.

  19. navigation waypoints

    Only mapquest currently features navigation waypoints.

    On a journey from locationA to locationZ one might want to pre-plan gas fill up locations, or additional points of interest. These are waypoints, or places to stop along the way.

    LocationA to locationB to locationC ... to locationZ

    To accomplish this now in Waze is a bit tedious

    locationA to locationB
    locationB to locationC
    locationC to locationZ

    One ought be able to enter all the locations and either specify the order of the waypoints OR allow waze to optimize some- or…

    while we still need to improve this a bit (work on special scenarios that involve ramps and other special road types), the issue should be fixed. If you still notice problems with it, please writ to alpha@waze.com
