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    some people are offended by outdated technology that requires one to pay for unwanted messages (sms).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

  5. Waze for Trucks

    Trucks are almost 5% of all traffic in the US (1). But there isn't a great navigation app yet. Waze should create an option / app for truckers.
    Editors can give in the following restrictions:
    - Closed for trucks / RV's;
    - Closed for vehicles longer than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles wider than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles higher than X meter / feet;
    - Closed for vehicles with an axle load more than X tons;
    - Closed for vehicles heavier than X tons;
    - Closed for trucks with hazardous substances;
    - Closed…

  9. 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"?

  10. 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.

  13. 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…

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

  16. Make Waze continue running in background untill it is turned off

    I use my phone for more than just Waze when I'm driving. Waze does not consistently run in the background when I switch to control another app (even when I'm driving on the highway at 65 mph). I'd really like to see an option in settings to keep Waze active until I manually exit. Alternatively, how about an option that keeps Waze active as long as my phone is in the car dock?

  17. 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

  19. 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

  20. 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.
