  1. Don't want to have to allow access to my contacts to share a drive

    In the new version, I can't enter an address or number anymore...and I'd really prefer not to sign over my entire contact list to waze. Can you reinstitute the message/email options in "share my drive"?

  2. Enable audio alert for speed cams regardless of the speed.

    Waze currently only triggers audio alerts about speed cams when the driver is above the speed limit of the specific cam.

    Since the speed detection on Waze is very flawed (at least here in Brazil/Rio de Janeiro), and not all cams have their speed limit properly set, it would be MUCH better if Waze triggered it's audible alert for speed cams independently of the fact that the driver may be above or below the limit of the cam.

    Thank you.
    And keep up the good work!

  3. Report « ride against traffic » on highway // signalement dédié "contre-sens" sur autoroutes

    A report “ride against traffic” would be:
    - More easily and faster to report, despite stress.
    - The other wazers know immediately what kind of danger is reporting.
    - Set off the report 1.5 km / 1 mi before the action take place.

    -- français --

    Pour avoir vécu récemment un contre-sens, c'est frustrant de ne pas pouvoir signaler aux autres wazers un danger de ce type, assez fréquent malgré ce qu'on peut croire (1 contre-sens / semaine en France sur autoroutes, sans compter ceux qui ne sont pas détectés).
    Un wazer avait indiqué un "danger sur la route" avec…

  5. expose intents

    for all clients expose an API

    for Android expose:

    • intents
    • broadcast intents
    • application shortcuts

    for the slightly savvier user this allows accelerated navigation by macro (Tasker, Llama, OmniDroid, et al)

    API allows for similar macro- or automation apps on iOS (ipad, iPhone), windows mobile, other platforms surely

    instead of

    ° load waze
    ° click or swipe to open navigate to UI
    ° search for address
    ° select match
    ° go
    ° pick route

    the macro app could accomplish this in

    ONE click

    this is employing merely one of a panoply of time saving waze measures

    add to…

  6. Add car video recorder feature

    TL;DR It would be extremely helpful, if Waze could continuously record and store video from front facing camera.

    Me and many of my friends would install a car video recorder. Main functionality is to continuously record anything that happens in front of your car, storing last few hours of recorded material.

    There could be many uses for this. Mainly - helping in crashes, where you are not guilty, but you cannot prove that.

    Functionality could be minimum. An option to enable or disable continuous recording through road facing camera. Setting, which indicates - how many minutes or hours of recording…

  7. Calculate fuel consumption and show cost of the route

    It would be great to be able to enter the average fuel consumption for certain speeds for your vehicle and then while calculating show also the cost of the route. It can be calculated by known speeds on the road, the need to stop and go on traffic lights, the overall profile of the route. There is an iPhone app that can serve as an inspiration - http://drivegain.com

  8. Display the name of current city / village

    Make the application display the name of the city or village that you are currently in.
    Maybe also the name of the next city / village that you'll reach on your trip will be nice to have displayed with a smaller text font

  10. Time zone adjustment

    Waze should adjust ETA to the local time when destination is a different time zone. When you leave Phoenix for southwest CO, for example, the ETA should be in mountain time, not AZ time. Currently, the ETA only adjusts when your phone automatically adjusts as you cross the time zone. It would be nice to know drive time is 6 hours, but ETA is 7 hours due to time change.

  11. Tasker intergration

    Tasker is a automation system for Android based on profiles that contains states and actions.

    For instance when Tasker sees the bluetooth in my car it begins to reject most calls, reads texts aloud me, and sends a automated reply. Currently that reply just says I will get back to them when I reach my destination. Waze knows that destination and my ETA. I would like to send that in the automated texts. I would also like for Tasker to be able to tell Waze a destination. Using this info it would also be possible for Tasker to do events…

  12. disable "not there" for abusers or non-contributers

    For those who harass police sighting users of waze by FALSELY clicking "not there" the button clicking privilege ought be revoked until they are other than counterproductive

    identify them by their sole use of police related report by not-thefe and entire lack of contributing reports

    Also detect stationary officers who not-there themselves

  13. turn off photo request at destination

    The "add photo" when you reach your destination is annoying, and unnecessary. Please give an option to disable.

  16. Alert drivers of cyclists

    I would love to have a real time weather overlay on the WAZE maps. This would be a GREAT feature to add to aid in knowing more about driving conditions. Please vote and let's see what we can do to make it happen.

  19. "EV Charging" instead of "Gas Stations"

    You can already tell Waze that you're driving an electric vehicle... so why do I still see "gas stations" as an option? Google Maps already has EV charging station POIs - let us select "EV Charging" instead of "gas stations"!

    Thank you for your suggestion! Adding EV charging stations to the map is under consideration.
    Stay tuned for more features and updates on Waze’s social pages on Facebook and Instagram

  20. Allow option to use device's TTS voice synthesis

    The Waze Android client has a decent sounding voice, but Android users can install 3rd party TTS apps. Please give us the option to choose to use the Android Text To Speech synthesis instead.
