    • enable copy and paste from Iphone calendar

      it used to work, but with the new IOS all you get is the url when you do that. I have too many calendars and Waze cant always get the right appointment for me.

      • Waze on top of everything

        Wouldn't it be cool if you can get a minimized version of waze that is on top of everything? I drive a lot but sometimes want to change music and such and having to exit Waze to do so and come back can be a pain. What if, and hear me out here, we have a version of waze that works like a widget that is on top of everything and we can only see the next turn, kind of like the top portion of it ONLY?

        • Fix the C3PO voice advice.

          The voice suggests, "Turn right (or left), Master." This is offputting to many of us, sensitive to the term, 'Master', implying slavery. Perhaps if he said, "Turn right (or left), Master Jedi, it would be more acceptable. As an Uber driver, I've had riders complain about that, so I went back to the generic voice.

          • do you want to take the creepy roads?

            There should be a "Do you want to take the creepy roads?" Option.

              • WAZE needs to add REMOVE A BAD REPORT to your SEND A REPORT.

                I am TRYING to get people interested in how helpful WAZE is. This HURRICANE had made me question how useful WAZE is. People are putting up BARRICADES on the APP in places where the roads are CLEAR. Bad reports NEED to be deleted. I would LOVE to help, but i have to sit there and look at BAD INFO. When your town is partially under water like mine, having BAD INFO on WAZE adds to an ALREADY DEPRESSING SITUATION.

                • There needs to be a warning or verification process if an ad is clicked and the destination is changed!!!

                  The other day, I must have accidentally hit an ad and it changed my destination. There was no warning that my destination was changed. There was no "Click here again to confirm change of destination" warning. It just changed. I had no idea where I was going so I simply followed instructions. Because I didn't know where I was going I had no idea I was going completely in the wrong direction. I didn't realize it until it brought me to my destination. A Red Roof Inn 20 minutes from where I was supposed to be...causing me to be over…

                          • Show speed limit range (90km/h - 1.4km) then 60km/h

                            I'm going 90km/h
                            Waze shows the speed limit will 60km/h after 1.4km.
                            I know I'll have to slow down 60km/h after 1.4 km

                              The speaker icon when waze is idle is huge when I don't want to use it, and when routing when I do it is tiny.
                              Make it large all the time on screen in an easy place.

                                    • updating more voices

                                      To help with breaking the ice with new passengers, how about giving us more options to change voices instead of having the same ones. What happened to Arnold's and Morgan Freeman's voices??

                                      • Add option to swap :Menu & Report icons/buttons

                                        It will be transparent for most of users. So I assume implementation is really easy. This will allow drivers like me ( who put the smartphone close to the speedgear to better report incident without being distracted on driving). Thank you very much.

                                        • Ideas to increase engagement with waze user (and improve waze ads value)

                                          What I've noticed that sometimes Waze 'recommend' a certain plaze to visit.
                                          I realize that this is an ad.
                                          But since I don't have any need for it, so usually I ignore it.

                                          But how about waze also give a certain benefit / added value to the deal that is exclusive ONLY in waze. Example: Disc 10% or buy 1 get 1 (and so on) from the mercant.

                                          (If Exclusive deal is hard, then waze can work together with deal sites, like groupon and so on... but I don't know if its possible yet)

                                          Then if the wazer go to…
