  1. Make map icons easier to identify!

    When looking at the waze map, it is difficult to tell what direction the traffic/police/accident icons are positioned for. There should be something included on the icon that indicates if the report is for Eastbound/Westbound traffic; maybe just a "W" or "E" included in the icon? Maybe add an arrow pointing in the direction of traffic flow that the report is effecting?

    • I am in South Florida with no power and I haven't seen any utility trucks in my area.

      I am in South Florida with no power and I haven't seen any utility trucks in my area. Since your app allows for reporting of roadside hazards could you add the feature of reporting where the utility trucks/workers are located. We don't have a lot of information on when to expect power and I understand that it doesn't mean power will be restored because they are in the area, it would be nice to know that they are closed

      • Folders in Waze

        First of all, I will just tell you that i really enjoy Waze.

        It helps me alot when I am out travelling.
        But I have one question.
        I am travelling veryvery much so my work would be much more effective,
        If it was possible to make some folders in Waze, where I Can write in all the adresses that i am going to,
        The best would be if I could fix some maps on your website.

        For example. I am going to Gothenburg, and will see 20 customers, than would it help me alot if I could fix the adresses…

        • The application does not change the orientation if the phone is held upside down.

          Sometimes you have to put the phone upside down in the car because the charger is on the bottom. However, the map does not orient to being held in that position (it did previously).

          • Vagas para estacionar em ruas

            Uma opção para que seja possível estacionar em ruas próximo a seu destino. A ideia se resume em definir uma distância máxima do destino e o Waze iria sugerir ruas próximas ondr seja possível estacionar, seja por zona azul ou gratis, de forma que o usuário não se distancie da região do destino porém passe por ruas onde o índice de vagas seja alto para o horário em questão. Para mercado brasileiro seria bem aceito e muito utilizado. A nova versão do Waze já guarda a localização onde as pessoas estacionaram os carros, então acredito que realizar o levantamento desse…

            • Notification sonore

              Il serait plus confortable et plus sécurisant d'avoir une notification sonore lors d'un dépassement de vitesse .
              Merci pour votre travail et aux wazers :)

                  During long distance travel "Add a Stop" feature spreads options (eg cafe) too widely apart without asking for more input as to which side of travel this Added Stop would be searched for.

                  I have done long routes in the past and half of the Stops that it finds are near my end point far in the distance and unnecessary for what I'm looking for at the time.

                  So an additional question "Close, or futher down" OR "Within the next __miles or __ minutes " would get better results for folks looking for a good stop either now or later…

                    • Announce turns with street names

                      When I am using waze directions and a turn is coming up, I am usually prompted with "in 1000 feet make a left". To me, and most people, this means nothing and I make a wrong turn 90% of the time, unless I am staring at the screen. Instead of this vague guidance, there needs to be a specific turn announced - "In 1000 feet, turn left on Green Lane" etc. this would save me and my friends so much frustration! Also, it would make Waze more hands free, which a driving app should be.

                      • Concert of Venue traffic avoidance mode

                        A few weeks ago I went to the Daytona 500 and when it was time to leave I selected avoid freeways in an effort to avoid some of the traffic. What I could have used is a mode or feature that takes you down subdivision roads or back roads no one knows about. I ended up going down a bunch of roads that ran parallel to one of the roads I was on and it saved me over 20 minutes that I would have been stuck in traffic.

                          I deliver flowers. Is there a way to put in addresses and waza organize them form closest to farthest or vis versa. Would be huge for deliveries. Save a lot of time.

                          • Turn Signal about 200 feet sooner. 350 Feet Perfect!!

                            I was using Waze and I was having issues with the turn signal at 150 ft. I was missing turns. I drive for Uber. Please give me another 200 feet like google. 350 feet is perfect I'm not distracted by watching the Waze GPS.
                            At 350 feet I know it's time to slow down and put my blinker on. Now Waze gives the signal to turn at 150 feet I have to put my blinker on and turn immediately. I've missed a few turns. I feel it is unsafe when driving at Rush Hour or through crowded areas like Jersey…

                              • Option to mute incoming calls while driving

                                While one drives one should be totally focuse on driving and needs the option to filter noises. Some drivers wouldn't want to get incoming calls or messages while they drive.
                                The suggested solution : add a button "filter noises" in order to decline incoming calls with an sms message and not get notification for messaging apps until the driver gets to his destination.

                                        • Indicate the main road

                                          It would be great to see the main road ikon next to the speed indicator.
