  1. Waze only friends

    Hello, I would like to be able to make friends with Wazers without having them also be facebook friends. To me they are seperate applications and do not want to mix them. Eg. work aquaintainces who I don't necessarially want to facebook friend them but use Waze. Also I have "real" friends who refuse to use facebook but I want to have them use Waze and friend them that way.

  2. William Daniels voice as KITT from Knight Rider

    Since Arnold Schwarzenegger voice was introduced as the Terminator, why not use KITT's voice as well? I think it would be a great idea, since he was one of the first talking cars! I'm pretty sure a lot of people would like to have KITT by his side while they're in the road.

  3. Open up Waze Carpool for Trinidad and Tobago to reduce Traffic

    Big benefits to bring Carpool to Trinidad and Tobago to:-
    -- reduce the number of cars on the road during rush hour traffic (5am-9am) & (3pm-7pm). It is grid-lock at these times and can take up to 3 hours to get into and out of the capital (Port of Spain)
    -- car ownership is prohibitively expensive
    -- public transportation is risky
    -- public transportation is unreliable
    -- be environmentally conscious to the earth by being more economical moving people

    Help our little paradise to become better and more responsible. Help to bring Waze Carpool to Trinidad and Tobago

  5. Option to disable route recalculating alert. That nerve wracking chirp is driving me crazy!

    Whoever approved that grating & obnoxious squawking route recalculation alarm should be fired. I drive a cab and even my customers cringe when they hear it and say "what's that awful noise". PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET US TURN IT OFF! Alerts only should mean alerts only. Hearing that damn noise screech and grate 5 times when I'm driving through a parking lot is maddening!

  6. Count TURNS, not distance to the next turn

    when people give directions to each other, naturally they will say 'on the 2nd turn, take a right turn'.
    We are better at counting turns, than meters or miles...
    if Waze could do the same, instead of 'in 500m turn right', it would be great

  7. Accident alert

    If something happened to a driver and it was an accident, Waze should detect the drastic "Stop" of the driver and after that if in th next 5-10 second no movements are done, should pop up a message asking the driver if he was in an accident, if the driver doesn't answer in 20-25 second, the "Alert" should appear on the map alerting the near user of Waze. What do you think?

  9. To mark street - Kids are playing

    Dear Waze Maps,

    My friends and I have come across a problem. This problem is kids playing on a community road/street. This presents a risk to kids , drivers , and property. For example , a kid who is playing on the road could get injured by a car hitting him/her. The car could also swerve and hit another car , injuring the driver and/or car. Another possibility is for the car to hit property like : signs , decorations , houses , or light posts.

    A person who is familiar with the road usually doesn't use Waze maps ,…

  10. "Open in Waze" - modify the Waze code so a user can click and hold on an address and be given the option to "Open in Waze" for navigation.

    "Open in Waze" (or "Navigate to in Waze") would merely allow the user to click and hold on an address in their phone and be given the option to open the address within Waze itself.

    A user currently can open an attachment in an email in numerous different downloadable programs. The same is true for address which currently default to the Maps app. It would be nice to see the same integration with Waze.

    Then, whenever a person receives a text, email, or other message with an address within it, the user would be able to click and hold on…

  11. Trip summary

    Can you add a trip summary button to show how long trip took. I enjoy that feature on my regular gps so I can see how long it took each day to get home from work for example.

  12. Avoid a specific road

    I've seen a number of posts regarding this, and myself have wanted this on various occasions for a number of different reasons. The alternatives (avoid highway, avoid toll, avoid dirt) are useful in many cases, but there are also many cases where they simply don't serve the actual need.

    For example, this reddit post (https://www.reddit.com/r/waze/comments/6vfd6m/canistopwazefromreroutingorselecta/) is from a user that wants to specifically avoid the Capital Beltway (I-495). Not because it's a highway, and not because of a perceived inability for Waze to determine traffic, but just as a personal…

  13. Average Speed / ANPR Camera Reporting

    As well as normal Gatso type speed cameras, increasingly automatic number plate recognition / average speed cameras are used in the uk. Being able to report them & their speed limit, and having a notification that you're within the average limit would be priceless.

  15. Recurring Weekly Planned Drive

    Have the ability set a planned drive to repeat every day, weekly. With a starting date and til a set date or never to expire.
    I go to work every morning at the same time, to the same place and there is a bunch of traffic: is a pain to have to set up this great feature every week

  18. Aviso de lombadas (quebra-molas)

    Muito importante o aviso da existência de lombadas ou Saliências, uma vez que a maioria não possui sinalização adequada. Fato que pode até mesmo causar acidentes ou sérios danos ao veículo.

  19. Waze API

    Unsure in which forum this falls, but the idea is to have an API which developers could use to use Waze information on their websites or apps.
