  1. Stop using location services when the application is "Sleeping"

    Even when the app is "Sleeping", Location Services are still being used and the battery is being drained.

    Notice that this is NOT a request to change the settings to "Only when using the app". It's perfectly clear why it's either "Never" or "Always".

  2. let users turn off "Directions" permanently (instead of having it launch every time!!)

    Currently, EVERY time I launch Waze, it asks me if I want to start directions. If I don't respond (by selecting "Cancel" it will launch without me wanting to. Guess what? I don't need directions to get home EVERY day!! This feature is so annoying. Please change this part of the app so that it doesn't think for you (and launch directions automatically) or have the question remain on the screen until someone answers the question.

  4. חיצי כיוון התנועה שיש גוש תנועה

    החצים של כיוון הפקק אינם ברורים, הם בצבע הפקק וכאשר על הפקק נוסף צבע המסלול בסגול, לא ניתן להבחין בהם
    בייחוד כשהנתיב עובר ברחוב צר יותר לא ניתן לדעת מה כיוון הפקק האם הוא בדרכך או בנתיב הנגדי....זו בעיה מתחילת דרככם....

  6. New area

    I live in a new area. I just edited the map to track the new roads, but I'm unable to set up my home location. What about giving us the opportunity to set up the house location just tapping on the map?

  8. Cant use Google Assistant when on Waze

    Am a Pixel 2 user. I realized, that while driving around with Waze, being enabled, i am unable to use Google Assistant. When i contacted Google support team, they advised me to reach out to Waze, since i am told this is an App related issues.

    In my opinion the ability to use Google assistant is very critical when we are on HIghways, since, there could be any critical reason you may want to communicate to the Assistant to read a text or send a message to a person about any critical update while enroute to home or office. I…

  9. Verbiage when alerting drivers

    ‪@waze Team I believe the wording when dealing with alerts should be changed. Instead of "Watch Out" it should be changed to"Be advised". "Watch out" is more of a right in your face type of thing. "Be advised" let's us know there is still time to get to whatever it is. ‬

  12. allow scheduling drive without loading times

    While Waze is loading the traffic times for the selected day, the user can't select a time to arrive by. In the vast majority of cases, I don't care what the traffic looks like, I just want to set up the planned drive no matter what. Please allow for the user to select their arrival time without having to wait for Waze to load the projected traffic.

  13. Be a car standard

    Volkswagen (in 2015) is known to build a good drivetrain and a safe car, but their electronics has been behind the times. Can Waze become their navigation standard? VW would not need to employ so many people in a marginally profitable area (at best) and clients get updates for years to come.

  20. Turn you smartphone to camera

    Greetings
    I would like to suggest a new function which makes it possible to turn your cell phone into a camera through using WAZE
    That is to add the camera button in the application screen and when pressed, it activates the back camera of the smartphone and records the way.
