  1. 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

      • 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...

        • 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…

          • 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…

                • 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.

                  • 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…

                      It would be great for Waze to release a version for WP8. I love using Waze on iOS and it is one of the limited apps that I would miss on WP8. Thanks!

                      • 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

                                • Ability to increase font size.

                                  Those of us who see distance fine but need reading glasses could use the abolity to increase street name and POI size. It's one if the reasons why I don't use Waze as often as I'd like to.
                                  Many thanks

                                  • 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!

                                    • remove Lake Shore Ave and Baxter St. from rush hour routes

                                      someone is going to be seriously injured. the street is a 32% grade and scares many drivers. during rush hour it's a DANGEROUS disaster waiting to happen.

                                      • 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.
