  1. Display icon at intersections with traffic lights making it much easier to know where the turn is when in unfamiliar territory

    Indicating traffic control signals on the map would make navigating in a city Im not familiar with much less stressful!

    • חישוב זמן הגעה על פי מהירות מוגבלת של הרכב במקום מהירות מותרת של הכבישים

      למשל במשאיות, המנוע של חלק מהמשאיות מוגבל ל 90 קמ"ש, ובמשאיות צבאיות המהירות שמותר להן לנסוע היא 80 קמ"ש. חשבתי על אפשרות להזנת הגבלת מהירות בווייז, ולפיה הווייז יחשב את זמן ההגעה ולא על פי המהירות המותרת של הכבישים (אלא אם המהירות המותרת של הכביש היא מתחת למהירות המוגבלת שהוזנה).
      לדוגמא, בכביש 6 אני נוסע 80 קמ"ש בגלל ההגבלה... בתחילת הכביש בצפון רשום לי שאגיע לבאר שבע בעוד כשעה ועשרים, ובפועל אני מגיע כעבור שעה וחמישים כי נסעתי הרבה פחות מהמהירות המותרת של כביש 6.

        This app is good but there are tow important things need to add or fix.
        1. It's doesn't tell you right or left when you get your destination. And 2. When turns are more than one it's should be able to tell you the 1st, 2nd or 3rd. You may not see these important if you're not using it at a busy city.

        • The English (UK) male voice has changed for the worst

          Please bring back the previous English (UK) male voice. The current version does not say the STREET NAMES in the directions. This causes me to constantly look down at my phone to confirm where I am turning. I actually missed my exit on the freeway a few days ago because of this.

          Secondly- the new voice is very soft and "sing-songy" and sounds like the voice that does the Boy Band voice. I find it very annoying. Please bring back the original English UK male voice with STREET NAMES!

          Make WAZE my favorite GPS again!

            • Closed road segment indicator

              Due to road reconstruction, since the 16th of August and until , at least, the 22nd of December, the "rue nationale" in Charenton-du-Cher (France) is totally closed to both way traffic between, at the west, the crossroad with "rue neuve" and, at the east, the crossroad with "D41e".

              Alternate local trafic is possible for light vehicles by "rue neuve" and "D41e". 

              Trucks trafic, totally forbiden through Charenton-du-Cher, has to follow signs to alternate routes.

              The Android Apps doesnt allow to indicate a closed road "long segment" which in this case would be very usefull !

              Could you also put a…

              • Ability to Submit Report from Notification Shade

                When Waze is in the background, the only option in the Notification Shade is to "Switch Off". It would be nice to also have a button that would bring you straight to the Report options (i.e, Police, Road Hazard, etc...). This would make it easier to contribute while using other prevalent driving apps like a music player.

                            • Botão de "não existe" quando se clica sobre um ícone

                              Quando nos aproximamos de uma ocorrência, a caixa de mensagem abre para que possamos agradecer ou indicar que não existe. Mas quando há dois eventos subsequentes próximos, ou mesmo quando clicamos sobre uma indicação de perigo para ver detalhes, não há mais a opção de indicar que não existe. Assim, seria ótimo se pudéssemos indicar que um alerta não existe quando se clica sobre o ícone, especialmente depois que passamos pelo local.

                                • Plot your chosen route by drawing it on, just like you would do with a traditional paper map.

                                  I mostly know how to get where I'm going, except for the last 200 yds.
                                  So, what I currently do, is to programme in a destination, then ignore the sat-nav until that last few streets.
                                  But if I'm mid-journey (on my chosen route) and I hit a big delay or something, I have to try and read my paper map to get me a decent alternative "cross-country", then get back to actually heading towards my destination.

                                  • School/Teamk/event emoticons. Lost on way to game? See the similarly clad Wazers in team gear!

                                    Say you're traveling down Interstate 75 headed for Floida A&M University in Tallahassee, but you get lost near a well-known shortcut in Tifton, Georgia. Never fear! Your Waze app shows nearby drivers clad in FAMU gear, and they are all headed in the same direction! Follow them, sort of how you might notice groups of FAMU license plates headed in the same direction. But Waze allows you to look for your fellow FAMUans further down the road! This concept could also work for events/conference, etc. Thanks for considering this idea!

                                    • App para monitorar o transporte público

                                      Gostaria de um app que possibilitasse prever quando um ônibus vai passar por determinado ponto. As pessoas poderiam participar dizendo se aquela linha está cheia, se o ônibus está atrasado ou quebrou.

                                      • Description of historical significance associated with places we travel

                                        Hi As I drive, sometimes I am intrigued about the places I travel or going through places. It will be helpful if my friendly incident can provide laconic descriptions of places. People can turn off this feature if they want but this will help.

                                        • Can the CHP app be part of waze?

                                          I like to find out the progress of accidents on the road with the CHP app and have often thought about hitting the accident icon and getting the CHP report in waze.
