  1. Stummschaltfunktion auf Display

    Hallo, eine Stummschaltfunktion auf dem Display wäre hilfreich. Ich benutze Waze auf meinem Telefon als Navi, jedoch wenn ich telefonieren muss, über Bluetooth Freisprecheinrichtung, werden die Navigation Hinweise auch angesagt.
    Somit ist der Teilnehmer nicht mehr zu hören.
    Audioausgabe ist über die Handylautsprecher eingestellt.
    Mfg Hendricks

      • Don't recalculate my route so casually

        I start my morning by starting Waze, selecting my route, then start my commute. No sooner than when I pull out of my garage, Waze recalculates my route, selecting a significantly different route then I just selected. So, I have to pick up my phone and select the original route, again.

        • Utilise Google Maps Lane Control Intelligence in Waze Route TTS

          Google Maps is starting to become superior to Waze for 'directions'.

          Lane control is starting to become an elephant in the room for Waze.

          To avoid re-drawing all our maps, it would be ideal to have 'cross system intelligence' when it comes route directions.

          Waze selects the route and where 'lane control/lane choice' instructions exist for route segments, we use the Gmaps 'intelligence' to enhance Waze provided directions.

          These added instructions would enhance and improve the Waze experience.

            • Bring back the speed limit indicator that was taken away and more celebrity voices more often

              Bring back speed limit option. It was very handy now it's gone. Also I'd like more celebrity voices more often.

              • Trafic preview

                At weekends and holidays it's common heavy traffic in certain times so the idea is each one choose a departure time and a destination that will create a table with the estimated time and if the one you want is too long you choose a more convenient so the idea is the traffic be more flat. If you don't departure the time you've scheduled you will loose points and be a bad wazer

                  • Dont go there

                    Let my choose road or junctions that I don't want to drive thru. If a lot of people will use it the authorities could use the information and plan the roads better.

                    • I think there should be a " avoid steep hill" option

                      My Chrysler 300 doesn't do well in the well and I can't afford to just switch vehicles so making a "
                      Avoid steep
                      Hills" option would be great because it would prevent collisions

                        • Locator / Distance Meter between two people

                          Hello ... My idea is: to show the distance between two people. In Kilometres and meters. It would be very useful between loving couples, parents and children, Waze users in general, etc. This idea I want to patent. It can be useful in smart phones, or any electronic device. If you use Waze, remember that this is my idea. I want my rights Royalties: D

                            When you're driving it's handy to know where a highway police station along the highway is, that's where police activity is usually highest

                            • Hi

                              I use Waze when I go on holiday. My request is, is it possible to have the facility to avoid narrower roads which would be especially useful for drivers towing caravans such as predominately using motorway and class A roads for the majority of the journey?

                              • Say which direction to go at a fork

                                Waze never says which way to go when there is a fork in the road. Yes, for the most part, one way is staying on the road, but there is usually no way of knowing without looking at the gps. This of course is dangerous because you are taking your eyes off the road.

                                  Idea: what if you could make a sound based on your mood? Nearby drivers could hear it if they opt to...happy people could "woot" for example.

                                  • Rerouted away from school bus stops at morning and after school

                                    People on waze have decided to go down our street phone and coffee in hand at the same time as the morning bus nearly hitting kids. Can we please adjust maps for school bus routes ?

                                      Apos atualizar meu sistema Android - Versão 5.1.1 em meu SONY, meu GPS funciona para (Menos não Waze) Perde a Rede Várias vezes, trava o mapa! Já efetuei de Tudo, Segundo a SONY o Problema pode estar no Aplicativo WAZE ! Não tenho Onde buscar Solução? Ou “UM CHAT” para Ideias, o que seria muito interessante , Hoje meu WAZE não e mais confiável.

                                      • Pointer arrow options for different vehicles

                                        Hi team! Love the app I have one suggestion for future update: with the current version we cannot change the blue car, can we get different arrow options to choose from? Maybe sports car, truck, spaceship, tractor, boat, police car, limo, Android auto arrow?

                                        • Searching without city and state should default to current gps location

                                          When you search without a city state or zip code the search results come up with some areas 900 miles away when in fact the address is local. Use the GPS location or cellular location to identify and start the search near that area. We shouldn't have to type city and state when a majority of the time is within our area.
