  3. Please provide an option to turn off the "car stopped on shoulder" warning.

    This is the most common warning yet doing nothing more than distracting. People stop on shoulders for few minutes all the time so why do I need to care unless I am planning to drive on the shoulder?? Turning off road hazards does not help.

  4. Dangerous areas in Brazil

    Unfortunately we have some problems about some dangerous areas... Another person got killed because of a bad route... http://g1.globo.com/rio-de-janeiro/noticia/2015/10/relembre-ataques-de-bandidos-do-rj-motoristas-e-passageiros-perdidos.html
    I think waze could have an option to avoid these unsafe areas...

  5. House numbers with slash

    Allow add house numbers with slash. For example: 631/29. 639 is for building, 29 is for entrance (Distance between entrances can by big). All block-buildings in my country has this double numbers.Also houses can be marked 10/a 10/b. It is not possible to add this type of number to editor, so usually we have just streets but no one is adding house numbers - as it would be inaccurate to put just first or second number.

  7. Auto Shutdown at Destination

    When arriving at your destination have Waze prompt an Auto-Shutdown with a 10 second countdown. I always shutdown my Waze when I arrive and instead of having to click menu and then shutdown, why not have Waze offer to do it automatically. This will also save battery if people forget.

  8. קריינות בלשון נקבה הכוללת את שמות הרחובות

    waze שלום!
    רציתי לבקש שתוסיפו אפשרות של קריינות הפונה אלי בלשון נקבה וגם מקריאה את שמות הרחובות.
    נכון להיום, מתוך 6 אפשרויות קריינות, חמש פונות לגברים, ואילו רק אחת פונה לנשים, והיא לא כוללת את שמות הרחובות.
    אני נוטה לנחש שהיחס בין המשתמשים למשתמשות בWAZE אינו אחד לחמש.
    אודה לתיקון ושדרוג האפליקציה כך שאוכל לשמוע הוראות הפונות אלי במגדרי הנכון וגם מאפשרות לי לשמוע את שמות הרחובות, כך שאוכל לנווט ביתר קלות ולהשתמש בכל התכונות המעולות שWAZE מאפשרת לניווט קל.
    אני בטוחה שיש ברצונכם ליצור תחושת התייחסות שווה ואכפתית למשתמשות בWAZE .
    תודה,
    אחת שאכפת לה.

  9. dead reckoning (when neither data nor GPS available)

    There are zero map apps that offer dead reckoning:

    continue navigation when neither GPS nor data (mobile or wifi) are available. Useful also when insufficient GPS birds viewable.

    + compass
    + accelerometer
    + time

    optionally

    * orientation (for fixed mounts)

    Given availability of map data those are enough to continue navigation:

    . in tunnels
    . in parking structures
    . in box canyons

    This is especially beneficial for those who do not have (no longer have) aGPS [assisted GPS] features.

    But dead reckoning will benefit even those with aGPS.

  10. Truck route option

    I use Waze everyday both on my commute to work and once I'm working (driving a semi around Chicagoland and all burbs within 50 miles or so). It would be nice to have an option to navigate truck routes when needed but then shut it off for when I'm in my car. MANY streets don't allow trucks due to weight or low overpasses, etc. Just a thought to help fellow truckers avoid getting in a bind! Maybe even reporting ability to post height/weight restrictions on certain roads...

  11. Please add suburbs / neighborhoods / sections

    In many many streets in Latin America as in other Europe countries, in the same city could be a lot of different streets with the same name, the only info that differs them is the name of the neighborhood or suburb. It would be awesome if you guys could fit that info.

  12. Police Heat Map

    What about a feature that shows popular police trap locations. There are locations in my town that are popular with police to setup speed traps. If those areas could glow blue like traffic areas glow red, I think that could be a great feature. If you could use the information that wazers report, then that info could be processed through an algorithm that show the high probability areas.

  13. HUD Mode

    The app needs a HUD mode option.
    Waze is by far the best navigation app around at the moment but is missing a HUD mode to make it safer to use on the road.

  15. display only live-info and events relevant to the current route

    Add option, that would:
    - enforce event pop-ups (such as accidents, etc.) to show only if they happen on the current route to destination (no need to se events in radius when not on the route)
    - display only number of events (under the icon with the red excl. mark) relevant to the current route to destination (this would help user open the live info only when there is a number indicating something going on on the route

  16. Tammy Dombeck - The Gridlock Buster

    I am nominating my beautiful bride Tammy Dombeck to be one of your voices. Tammy was the Traffic reporter on the NBC affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth for 14 years. After she left, she spent 3 years at the CBS affiliate as their morning and afternoon traffic reporter. We live in Fort Worth and I commute to Dallas during the week so I have been using yoru app for a couple of years. Love it. What I do miss is seeing and hearing Tammy give her traffic reports. I also am guessing that there are thousands and thousands of people here…

  17. Use the voice of Sam Heughan (star of "Outlander") - the show is a big hit in UK, USA, Australia, etc.

    Use the voice of Sam Heughan (star of "Outlander" TV show) - clear scottish accent - the show is a big hit in UK, USA, Australia, etc. Would be good idea for a sales pitch.

  18. 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.

  19. Waze response to suggestions

    There are currently 31 suggestions with more than 500 votes.
    Only 11 have an answer from Waze and some of those have been in the suggestion box since the year 2010.

    Can Waze show more involvement with the community suggestions by trying to respond to all suggestions that reach 500-1000 (higher?) suggestions?

    "No" or "Not planned" is an acceptable answer as it is BETTER than no answer at all.

    Thank you
