  1. Privacy zone: stop reporting *near* home/work‏

    Having read the Waze ideology of location reporting at journey endpoints with respect to privacy I have deemed it wanting greatly.

    Please consider a feature to allow one to create flexible (arbitrarily variable) zones around one's home, workplace, church, etc, where upon entering one's position is no longer publicly visible.

    I am confident a variation of this will mitigate privacy journey endpoint concerns

      • אזהרת תינוק באוטו

        בתחילת נסיעה תיהיה לך אפשרות לבחור בפונקצייה שאתה אומר לאפליקצייה ששמת את הילדים איתך באוטו, ובסוף הנסיעה האפליקצייה תשלח הודעת תזכורת לא לשכוח את התינוק/ילדים. חשוב מאוד במיוחד בימים כאלה חמים ושכולנו לא שמים לב כל כך.

        • 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.

            • Other Side Reporting

              You used to have "Other Side of Road" for reporting. It was *AWESOME* and I used to report vehicles on the other side on the shoulder, and appreciated getting the notification about that. It's only available with the Police now; please bring that back. Why did you take it away?

              • accept GPS coordinates as destination

                Most apps which derive GPS. location express numerically as

                latitude comma longitude

                please accept each with decimal precision to 19 digits

                also add logic to accept paranthetic coordinates

                • Add option to prefer beautiful way (scenery) over short/fast way

                  When on a trip we sometimes prefer a beautiful way (view, atmosphere, interesting villages etc.) over the short/fast one. (I noticed that on our last trip abroad).

                  • Samsung Gear S2 integration

                    I'd like Waze to integrate with the Samsung Gear S2, which is on the Tizen OS. Most particularly, I'd like vibrate reminders of upcoming turns. Also, navigation initiation and address lookup would be useful.

                    I'm using the device with a Nexus 6 on Marshmallow.

                    • Make waze tolerant of intermittent network connectivity

                      Waze relies on a network connection when in use. Many areas I drive in have poor or intermittent network connectivity. Please make the Waze client more tolerant of poor network connections by caching more data of the surrounding map and allow journey data (including new roads) to be cached on the client and uploaded at a later time. Not all areas can rely on good 3G/UMTS network connectivity

                      • Avoid parkway feature

                        Driving a commercial vehicle we are not allowed to go on parkways. A conventional GPS allows you to "avoid part of route" I want to be able to go on all other highways just not parkways. When it gives you a route, you should be able to avoid parkways where all truckers cannot use either

                          Now that CarPlay is live on Pioneer head units, when will Waze support CarPlay integration? I really don't want to switch to Apple Maps, but the CarPlay system can't be beat, even by Waze.

                          • Optimized functionalities for motorbikes

                            It's too bad Waze doesn't offer any of these functionalities for riders/bikers:
                            - deactivate traffic jams in the time calculation (or consider we are at around 50 km/h on these parts of the path)
                            - proposing winding/twisting roads with different levels, just like Tomtom and Garmin already do with their devices
                            - allowing to create more than one step point to get the perfect itinerary
                            - allowing the load of external files (such as .gpx for example) to create roadbooks on our computer (with Google Maps or else) and then send it to our smartphone.

                            In brief, just a few…

                            • 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…

                              • Allow the ability to specify the location of a report.

                                When reporting an issue, crash, traffic jam, fire, Police activity, the system only gives you the option to report on the road you are on. So for example, if you are at an interchange where you can see the activity on a highway or interstate, but you are not on that road, you can't actually report it properly. Maybe it can be set up that you make a report, and like in google maps, you have a pin dropped on the map that you can move to the correct location, if where you are is not the location of the…

                                    • The ability to plan a trip with multiple stops

                                      The ability to enter a starting location, an ending location, points in between and have waze provide the route and order.

                                      For example if I am going on vacation and want to stop at three stores and get gas on my way there...

                                      • send XMPP message when nearing destination (Jabber)

                                        some people are offended by outdated technology that requires one to pay for unwanted messages (sms).

                                        It is beyond inane to use sms on a smartphone when XMPP is far more featured, FREE, secure.

                                        Waze could further advertise the service with its own XMPP server. This would facilitate such messages, enhance social features, and expand the wondedful world of federation. Prosody and Tigase are great server options.
