  1. the time of arrival

    the time of arrival is often wrong because waze does not take into account the stop and the traffic light of the streets
    it's stressful to arrive late.
    It would be necessary to add time for the cities.
    To arrive before it is well, arrived after not well
    Sorry for the write i m french

      • Being able to set a radius of what specific area you want to avoid AT ALL TIMES

        In Toronto, the area around the ACC and Rogers centre is a constant cluster f**k. It would be great to be able to tell waze to always avoid this area since the beginning and end of games is always a disaster. Just today we were on our way home and instead of giving an alternate route home, it brought us to the centre of the disaster area of pedestrian traffic right when a blue jays home game ended, which extended our travel time by 2x.

        • Live suggestions for avoiding heavy traffic

          Waze to suggest route changes and alternative route live when driving and some heavy traffic is happening ahead. - Last week I was driving home the usual route but a friend of mine called me to report heavy traffic on the usual route, so I changed the road, and when I reached home Waze showed me that there is heavy traffic around me but did not offer me to avoid it some 20 kilometer earlier.

          • Add Rain to the hazard category

            The condition of rain occurs more throughout a year than ice or fog does. I would think fellow travelers would love to know if they traveling in to areas impacted by rain especially the millions of people who travel in convertibles, pick up trucks that they be hauling goods that cannot be exposed to rain conditions. There is plenty of room to add this condition on the hazard drop down screen, why limit our options?

            • Signalements zones de contrôles état d'urgence

              Bonjour,
              En raison des récents événements tragiques qui touchent la France et nous heurtent profondément, l'Etat d'Urgence a été décrété par le Gouvernement, ce qui signifie que durant n'importe quel contrôle routier, les véhicules ainsi que ses occupants peuvent être fouillés.
              Il serait nécessaire voire primordial de bloquer la possibilité de signaler les zones de contrôles routiers et barrages de polices aux utilisateurs afin de ne pas permettre aux personnes ayant un lien avec ces actes de barbaries sans nom, d'être au courant de ces actions coordonnées et rendre facile la découverte de personnes impliquées de près ou de loin…

                Add the ability for a user to click on the route and click on the event to see where it actually is. Is is almost impossible to select a new route without knowing what to avoid

                  • Report dangerous driving

                    Would be super Helpful having an icon to report DANGEROUS DRIVING on Brazilian maps. Too many drivers do not drive safely and overpass de speed limit letting others drivers in danger.
                    Would be SUPER if Waze could add this service for thee good of all carefully drivers.
                    Thank you.

                      • Colour of numbers

                        My WAZE is on my iPhone on the windscreen. I can't read the red on black number of my speed - red on white would work.
                        Also, I can't read the text on messages of hazards, could they be a fraction larger?

                          Good Morning.
                          I would suggest that the application also identify if it were a TAXI and may indicate Bus Corridors as a good alternative.
                          Here in São Paulo, the TAXI can walk in some exclusvias lanes for buses.
                          it certainly would help a lot.

                              • Risking my life in the favelas

                                The app always drives me to the Brazilian favelas in São Paulo. It is very dangerous. I don't want that happen to me the same that happened with that couple of elders in Rio when the app drove them into the streets of a favela and they got shot. Uber or Taxi drivers that follow Waze frequently don't know alternative routes, been vulnerable to assaults. The most frequent route I use is Av. Almirante Dellamare that connect São Paulo to São Caetano do Sul. This street has an average of 2 assaults per day in about 1 mile of extension.

                                  • report lamp failure

                                    I'd like to be able to report that there's a car with a failed brake lamp or turn signal lamp. Conversely, I'd like the app to use other people's reports to alert me when I have a failed brake lamp or turn signal lamp. How it would work: It would alert me when there have been, say, two reports near me in a week. Optionally the app would let the reporter shoot a quick photo of the car, and from that your server would try to grab the license plate or the make, model, and color, if any of those…

                                      • Allow users to keep celebrity voices via in app purchase

                                        Continue having a free voice that rotates out every so often but allow users to both keep the ones they like and download previous featured voices via in app purchases. Would both please the user and bring in income for an otherwise free ad supported app.
