  1. I would love to see WAZE as an option for Android Auto!!! Will Waze ever be an option on Android Auto??

  2. show street name currently on

    It would be great to show the name of the street you're currently on, as well as that of the next turn. Also, show the name of the street you're on when not in navigation mode.

  3. Navigate shortest route

    With the new update you all took away the option to search by shortest route available or Fastest route available. Please bring this function back.

  4. Enable audio alert for speed cams regardless of the speed.

    Waze currently only triggers audio alerts about speed cams when the driver is above the speed limit of the specific cam.

    Since the speed detection on Waze is very flawed (at least here in Brazil/Rio de Janeiro), and not all cams have their speed limit properly set, it would be MUCH better if Waze triggered it's audible alert for speed cams independently of the fact that the driver may be above or below the limit of the cam.

    Thank you.
    And keep up the good work!

  5. Add car video recorder feature

    TL;DR It would be extremely helpful, if Waze could continuously record and store video from front facing camera.

    Me and many of my friends would install a car video recorder. Main functionality is to continuously record anything that happens in front of your car, storing last few hours of recorded material.

    There could be many uses for this. Mainly - helping in crashes, where you are not guilty, but you cannot prove that.

    Functionality could be minimum. An option to enable or disable continuous recording through road facing camera. Setting, which indicates - how many minutes or hours of recording…

  7. Tasker intergration

    Tasker is a automation system for Android based on profiles that contains states and actions.

    For instance when Tasker sees the bluetooth in my car it begins to reject most calls, reads texts aloud me, and sends a automated reply. Currently that reply just says I will get back to them when I reach my destination. Waze knows that destination and my ETA. I would like to send that in the automated texts. I would also like for Tasker to be able to tell Waze a destination. Using this info it would also be possible for Tasker to do events…

  9. Home and Work favorite should have "use current location" to add, not just search for address

    This favorite is great. But it should have a "Use current Location" button to add your Work and Home. Searching for an address it will not show exactly where the house is, in this case in Ecuador, if it's a new home or not on the database.

  10. route overview

    Please add an option to see either a birds-eye overview or a turn-by-turn list (or both?) of the route Waze is taking me on.

    Sometimes I *know* I want to avoid a particular road. So when Waze plots a route for me at the start, I can review the proposed alternate routes and choose one. But if I need to deviate from that route to make a side errand maybe, Waze will recalculate my route on the fly, going back to its #1 preferred route. If I'm not paying close attention, this sends me back over to the road I…

  11. Calculate fuel consumption and show cost of the route

    It would be great to be able to enter the average fuel consumption for certain speeds for your vehicle and then while calculating show also the cost of the route. It can be calculated by known speeds on the road, the need to stop and go on traffic lights, the overall profile of the route. There is an iPhone app that can serve as an inspiration - http://drivegain.com

  13. 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

  14. Apple Watch app

    I would like an Apple Watch app that shows you turn by turn directions on the watch. The watch app should also allow you to enter in events such as road closures, cops, etc. You should also add a reroute button thay quickly reroutes you through another route in the event of a road closure or blockage on the current route.

    I love Waze but it needs a Watch app. I have been using Apple Maps because of its watch app and I can't explain on this forum how nice it is to see the next turn on your watch.

  15. I would love to see Waze on the Samsung Gear S3.

    As far as I can tell, the Gear S3 can be purchased with a Data plan via AT&T, so theoretically it would be possible to use Waze on a smart watch with both GPS and Data. I would absolutely pay for a smartwatch version of your app, as would many other people! Having my phone out to use Waze when commuting daily is a bit cumbersome, but using it on a smart watch just to keep an eye out for traffic / police would make me use it every time I step foot in my car. I truly hope you…

  16. turn off photo request at destination

    The "add photo" when you reach your destination is annoying, and unnecessary. Please give an option to disable.

  17. Create a Report category for "Faulty Traffic Lights"

    Traffic lights are a major cause of traffic delays when out. Currently there is no way to report this specific problem.
