  1. 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.

  2. Bicycle navigation and bike routes for waze!!! Please!!

    Can you please add bicycle routes to the app and ways to avoid roads that go over a certain speed limit? The option to set your vehicle as a bicycle and find routes like that avoid high speed roads and roads that dont allow bikes conbined with all of the other great functions of the app will be fantastic...

    But since you don't have the feature so many bicyclists won't get to navigate with your app and get the same benefits that car drivers have... I really need a navigator for bikers that shows the speed limits of the roads…

  3. Clearly show speed limit when approaching speed camera

    When you are approaching a speed camera, waze client should show a big speed limit sign (I mean a really big sign, covering the hole screen!) that shows the current speed limit.

  4. Judge Judy as a navigation voice

    Judge Judith Sheindlin of "Judge Judy" fame giving her acerbic, vitriolic instructions just like she does in the courtroom but only as a navigator.

  6. Stop routing traffic down quiet residential streets

    Your app has a very narrow focus. It doesn't take the actual street or the people that live on it into consideration. I have lived on a very quiet residential street until your app has increased in popularity. Thanks to your app, our street is now like a mini-highway and two neighbor pets have recently been killed. Additionally, your ignorant app doesn't take into consideration that it is directing traffic to take a very dangerous left turn onto Briarcliff Road. The results have been numerous accidents. Please take Stephens Drive, 30329 off your cut throughs at once.

  8. Speed limit

    Please allow us to remove the digital speedometer, and instead show a much larger speed limit for the road! The current speed limit sign is very small on some displays, and since every car already has a speedometer, I would like the option to remove it from the app and just show a large icon for speed limit only

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    some people are offended by outdated technology that requires one to pay for unwanted messages (sms).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

  13. 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"?

  14. Tracking stop signs and stop lights

    In addition to "Difficult intersection" it would be very handy for two features:
    1) Waze's map to record if there are stop signs (2, 4 way), and lights at an intersection. This would (hopefully) include separate turn signals; some intersections are VERY difficult to turn left at even with a light, for example.

    2) A setting for navigation (in the app) for "Avoid unguarded turns/intersections". This would then allow a driver to NOT have to turn left across 6 lanes of traffic, for example, as the app would know there was no light at that crossing (or even going directly…

  15. Quick-report presets

    The amount of phone interaction required for reporting is a bit onerous while driving. Tap to Report > select category > add optional additional info > send. I often skip reporting altogether to avoid distracting from driving.

    I would love to see the ability to have one-touch presets for making reports from the main screen. A single tap to mark & send a report on an accident, hazard, or speedtrap, etc.

    User might even be allowed to customize which presets are present and/or include specific text (i.e. "Left lane closed") for frequent events.

  16. 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

  18. 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…

  19. 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…
