  1. 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.

    • Ability to increase font size.

      Those of us who see distance fine but need reading glasses could use the abolity to increase street name and POI size. It's one if the reasons why I don't use Waze as often as I'd like to.
      Many thanks

          • 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!

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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

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

                    • 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

                      • Alert drivers of cyclists

                        As a cyclist I would love to see a feature in which drivers are alerted of cyclists in advance using real time data from other apps like strava, endomondo or mapmyride.

                        • Waze for WP8

                          It would be great for Waze to release a version for WP8. I love using Waze on iOS and it is one of the limited apps that I would miss on WP8. Thanks!

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

                              • Make Waze continue running in background untill it is turned off

                                I use my phone for more than just Waze when I'm driving. Waze does not consistently run in the background when I switch to control another app (even when I'm driving on the highway at 65 mph). I'd really like to see an option in settings to keep Waze active until I manually exit. Alternatively, how about an option that keeps Waze active as long as my phone is in the car dock?

                                • Paid Voice after Free Period Ends

                                  We loved having Stephen Colbert as our chosen voice on Waze. We want to suggest offering the limited voices for payment after the free period ends. We absolutely would pay to keep Stephen on our Waze. You have a lot of Wazers. If a portion purchased for $.99 or $1.99 each voice, it could add up. It would make your customers happy and earn you some revenue.
