  1. Simplify UI for lite users

    I know this may seem like a facepalm moment for many users, but trust me, I have friends out there who have given me feedback that Waze is 'too complicated' and find Google Navigation far simpler. I see one option is the first screen could ask 'Would you like to "Enter a Destination" or "Just drive around"?' just to make the first impression simpler.

    Other tweaks could also be made for our tech-not-so-savvy users. This could have a major impact on retaining users.

    • מיפוי מגורים בקיבוץ

      ניווט בתוך קיבוץ הוא לפעמיים לא פשוט ולא תמיד יש ילד על אופניים שיכול לקחת אותך למקום או משפחה .
      מציע שתהיה לקיבוץ אפשרות תת מספרים למבנים כך שכדי לבקר את דודי בקיבוץ אייל מספיק שארשום אייל 43 ואגיע.

      • Ambulance / Fire

        I think to improve the communication when an ambulance is passing from me ... you are always open the way to ambulance pass and to give them the freeway - no stop ... the idea is to communicate the wazers that are in front of me that the ambulance is coming fast on the same road. With this pop up, wazers can change the lane before the ambulance be close them, given the priority to ambulance.

            • Minimize turns setting

              iPhone - I wish the minimize turns setting get saved when I exit the app. The minimize turns setting seem to map the routing more logical when set to off.

              • Adding addresses needs to be user friendly

                When adding an address to "Favorites" it's almost impossible. Once you type in the address, there is not "Add" button only "Back and "Close". I tried to follow the instructions it says to touch to add and I add the address and nothing happens. Impossible to add "Home" or "Work". Frustrated.

                    • Police warning should be Speed dependant

                      Police warnings should be either speed or road type dependant. There is no point warning me about police speed trap 200 yards ahead when their optical devices can see about one mile. I think if this was added it would be perfect app.

                        • Shorter Alert Sounds

                          I often listen to podcasts while driving but get frustrated when the Waze alerts are long and tend to block the audio of the podcasts. Could we get a custom voice that says simply "Traffic" instead of "Heavy Traffic Reported Ahead", etc.

                            I would love it if you guys could make a Waze app that would be best for Mardi Gras and other parades that we have a New Orleans so that we can maneuver around road closures and other types of obstacles and that the GPS can guide us around these to the we can get to our destinations without any problems

                            • Change the blue color under the mileage which is white to yellow or white when driving it is difficult to read and phone is 18 inches away.

                              Difficult to read exit info which is the color blue change to yellow or white .
                              Even a second or two longer to read not good takes my eyes off road

                                  maybe you can make the control bars moveable for left and right hand users
