      Please amend the visitors entrance on the GPS from Andrea Lane to US 41. At present drivers are directed to the owner's entrance and cannot gain access. They need to be directed to the US41 entrance where they can talk to Envira Security.

      • Is there support? I'm trying to verify my account to enable access to my phone's contacts and there's no place to enter the verification cod

        I'd think this would be something that you'd receive notices about and want to fix. It's a major capability I used in previous versions, but when I moved to a new phone, I can't get access to my contacts.

          • Create a 'familiar route' mode

            I use Waze for my commute and repeatedly hearing the detailed descriptions of the same road names is driving me mildly crazy. Would prefer to pare down the verbal contact to alternate routes necessitated by congestion and road alerts like "debris in road," "police ahead" etc.

              • Just want to add my name to the list for users to be able to create folders in the favorite folders.

                It would be less annoying when we are in the editor for favorites if the favorite we are editing cannot be sent to drive map. Currently when in the edit mode all you can do is click and hold the three bars to relocate the favorite. If I accidentally tap anywhere on the favorite besides the three bars I get set to an active drive. To simplify editing use the three bars to provide a drop down list of edits, e.g. move, edit the favorite name, address, etc. This is how most three bar functions work on apps and pc's…

                • put the feature back knuckleheads

                  before the update, Waze had the simple, one click feature to search an address on the main screen, now its gone!

                  This means there is one more click involved to enter an address in the search box or to click on the voice entry window.

                  While there are many good changes, this one takes you backwards!!

                    • make your features actually work correctly

                      I like my maps oriented so North is up. You have a feature that does this. But after a recent update, if I touch the map in North Up mode to either look ahead on the route or zoom in/out, north up stops working entirely. Also, it's not great that the driving icon is now towards the bottom of the screen instead of centered. It makes driving south in "north up" mode incredibly frustrating. Everything used to work better months ago.

                              • drive scheduling

                                The only problem with the new "drive scheduling several days in advance" feature is that the display takes so long to refresh after the day is entered and before the hour is entered that I originally thought the program got hung!! I discovered that I have to leave it alone for about a minute, and it will process the command and continue eventually. SO MY SUGGESTION is either to shorten the processing time, OR to display a status message every 10 seconds, so the user knows that the app is still processing and has not hung up.

                                • It will be great to have a park location memory which could be activated by the user at the end of a path.

                                  A park location option could be implemented. The user could activate it when he parks and then find his car easier waze knowing its exact location.

                                    I love Waze! But I would love if my guys that work for me would also have such an app for my y trucks.

                                    • הצגת שמות רחובות

                                      משהו שהשתבש בגרסאות האחרונות. לפעמים לא ניתן בשום אופן לראות שמות רחובות מסויימים, אפילו ראשיים. מזיזים ימינה, שמאלה, קדימה, אחורה, למעלה, למטה, רחוק, קרוב. נאדה. מת. שכחתם שזו אפליקציית מפה? יכול להיות שאחד הטאלנטים שלכם הגה רעיון של יוזמה מבורכת במרכאות שנועדה לצמצם עומס מלל. לגיטימי. אבל עם קצת הזזה שם הרחוב צריך להופיע. ולא לגרום לנהג להשתגע, לצאת מדעתו כדי לנסות להתמצא. בנוסף שם הרחוב או מספר הכביש שנמצאים בו כעת, תמיד חייב להופיע למטה! או בסגול אם יש מסלול או בשחור קטן אם לא. מידע אלמנטרי שהמשתמש לא צריך לצאת מדעתו כדי לגלותו אלא שיהיה נגיש תמיד. תודה.

                                        • Add "Electronic Sign with Radar" as an alert category

                                          I use Waze and a radar detector. It seems like every electronic informational sign in New York State has a radar gun built into it. It would be great if Waze showed these as semi-permanent installations. Then when my detector goes off I will know it's just a dumb sign up ahead and not a cop. BTW, photo radar is illegal in NYS.
