    • Speeding alert for drivers

      Waze should make a sound to alert the driver when they are speeding.

      Waze already shows you how fast you are currently driving, and it knows everything about the road you are on, so it should be simple to compare your speed to the listed speed of the road.

      Waze has always been about saving time and money for Wazers, and about creating features to attract and keep people on their service. This allows Waze to on-sell quality map data to other businesses, such as Apple. Many other SatNav clients have speeding alerts to save the driver from getting a…

      • 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"?

        • disable popups

          Please provide the means to disable popups. I like the flags. The popups block half the screen, are irrelevant, and recenter the map.

          • 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.

            • 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...

              • iOS version - Please add the display of the maximum speed limit.

                The user should always see the maximum allowed speed, so he won't exceed it.

                  • 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 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…

                      • Apple CarPlay

                        With the release of iOS10, Apple's stock apps can be removed from the CarPlay screen, including Maps. Now, there's room for Waze to reside on all of our CarPlay home screens.

                        Dear Waze, please bring your awesome nav to CarPlay. Reports have said that you're working on it, so my request is redundant. But @waze itself suggested I post here, so you know you want this too.

                        Let's send Waze some encouragement and vote for Waze on CarPlay! Thank you.

                                  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

                                  • 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…

                                    • route overview

                                      Please add an option to see either a birds-eye overview or a turn-by-turn list (or both?) of the route Waze is taking me on.

                                      Sometimes I *know* I want to avoid a particular road. So when Waze plots a route for me at the start, I can review the proposed alternate routes and choose one. But if I need to deviate from that route to make a side errand maybe, Waze will recalculate my route on the fly, going back to its #1 preferred route. If I'm not paying close attention, this sends me back over to the road I…

                                      • Home and Work favorite should have "use current location" to add, not just search for address

                                        This favorite is great. But it should have a "Use current Location" button to add your Work and Home. Searching for an address it will not show exactly where the house is, in this case in Ecuador, if it's a new home or not on the database.

                                        • 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!
