  1. Stop crashing when using widget as a shutter in Action Launcher, on a HTC One

    When using the launcher "Action Launcher" on a HTC One, there is a feature that shows widgets with a swipe up of the app icon. If I try to refresh my journey home time from within this shutter, Waze force closes.

    • Add a buzzer to the speed metering

      Since Waze application presents the driving speed + the allowed speed, I suggest to add a buzzer capability that will be activated in case the driving speed exceeds the allowed speed.

      Such vocal alert will assist the driver in being aware that the driving speed is illegal. This way Waze will contribute not only to safety but will let the driver be careful and avoid speed reports.

      I suggest to add another feature to the above capability: to let the driver set 2 buzzers – the first one if the driving speed exceeds the allowed speed by up to 5%,…

      • WME Restriction Layer and Invisible chat for newbies...

        Hello everyone:

        I don't know if there is a existent proposal (I checked it at the suggestion box and the forum) about a layer of the WME for newbies editors with Ranks 1 & 2.

        For these ranks I propose remove avtivation layers (Connected users) and the Chat Invisible option.

        ¿Why?

        Because some times when a newbie editor messes up the map and the advanced editor interacts with him does not respond the WME Chat instead following him elsewhere in the map the newbie does not see us because of the "Connected Users" layer is deactivated.

        • Loved the Arnold Schwarzenegger voice, but now I can't use it. Change the app to allow voices to be downloaded and kept perpetually.

          Allow voice navigation personalities to be downloaded and kept perpetually on the phone. I understand you may only be able to have so many voices available on the phone at any one time. I loved the Arnold Schwarzenegger voice, but it was removed. Makes me not want to try new voices because then I'll get attached to them only to see them removed. Being able to download a nav voice to keep would make Waze truly stand out compared to the other nav apps out there. Thanks for considering this improvement!

            • GPS location always on!

              I really wish you would have the choice of location sharing when using the app only. I don't like the fact that it's always on. I am sure that I am not the first person to day this!

              • Sort petrol prices on last updated date and price

                It would be good if you could sort petrol prices on their last updated date as well as their price. Any petrol price not updated in last 5 days is probably wrong

                • Add ad

                  When you click on an advertiser -- you have option to "add' stop to your route and not to replace your existing route.

                  If I see an advertiser and decide to stop and click on the link, I am still on my previous route and would like to "add" in the new stop (just as we can do on our own) versus replace the existing route. A bit frustrating to have to re-initiate pre-existing route just because I selected the option to visit an advertiser's establishment.

                    i would like to offer Wazers free fuel loading while they are in the office. We will fuel up their cars at current pump prices - No extra Charges. A minimum number of Liters is the only requirement.

                      • Roam free in parking lot

                        If a parking lot is marked as a landmark in WME, let the client roam freely within the area without 'snapping' to the nearest road. The advantage is that your location relative to entry/exit can be seen and the screen doesn't jump all over the place trying to guess which lane/road you are nearest.

                          This is in order to be able to equalize levels with Spotify (to high) and car radio (to low).

                              • לגרסאות העתידיות: כדאי לאפשר דיווח מהיר על הגבלת מהירות לא נכונה.

                                רצוי להוסיף רשימת מהירויות ולא לדרוש שימוש במקלדת להזין מהירות כמלל.
                                כך אפשר יהיה לדווח בשלוש לחיצות בלי להסיר את המבט מהכביש ליותר משתי שניות

                                  Deveria ter a funcionalidade de reproduzir os alertas como chamada telefônica. Desta forma os alertas seriam reproduzidos mesmo quando estamos escutando rádio, CD, DVD, USB ou qualquer dispositivo no modo Bluetooth. Esta funcionalidade já existe no Sygic e é muito boa.

                                  • Go back to the directional method prior to this last upgrade. It takes more concentration to consider which way is right or left .

                                    I don't like the new directional arrow. I now have to concentrate on which way is right or left while I'm driving. Im somewhat direction challenged as it is. If your in heavy traffic, its one more thing to worry about.

                                    • Concentrating on driving mode

                                      Hi
                                      I would like you to add an opening window which will ask me if I want to disconnect from texting apps while driving before I start driving with waze.
                                      Lately we are witnessing too many car accdidents that happen because of texting while driving..
                                      I would like to drive only with wasze working and having the opportunity to answer important phone calls with out texting.
                                      I don't want to see the text messages popping in my phone while driving with waze
                                      Thanks
                                      Ilana

                                        I work from home, so I have an empty "work" slot taking up space in my favorites. It does no good, so it's just a wasted spot that could be better used with a different favorite.

                                        • קול של גבר שנותן הדרכה בלשון נקבה

                                          אתמול נסענו יחד ברכב אני וחברה וברגע של הומור היא ביקשה שאסדר את וויז כך שגבר יקריא עבורה את ההוראות בלשון נקבה. אמרתי: ברור!מיד אני משנה עבורך את ההגדרות! אך להפתעתי ראיתי שאין כזו בין ההגדרות והתאכזבתי מאוד. האם לא לגיטימי לחשוב ,שבשפתנו היפה,בה יש לשון לזכר ולשון לנקבה יהיה שיווין בין האפשרויות? תרשו לי אפילו לומר-האם לא הגיוני שגבר ישב במושב שליד הנהג וידריך אישה נהגת?

                                          לטיפולכם אודה!
