  1. City display size in relation to number of inhabitants

    At this moment it is difficult to find big cities on the map to orient yourself.

    With the text size of the city name in relation to the city size the readability of the map would improve a lot.

  2. No ridiculous short cuts

    I'd like to see a way to have a check-box type setting to turn "shortcuts" on/off. Sometimes I would swear that waze is just messing with me, taking me on zig-zag routes that are in no way faster than just going straight. I don't want to do this.

  3. Wazer vehicle description so we can actually wave to other wazers

    I can see the little Wazer icons on the map, but I am always wondering who around me is actually using Waze. How about an option to show our vehicle type or photo of our vehicle? If not that, what about a "Sonar" button to see how close we are to other wazers at any given moment? (think sonar on a submarine)

  5. Waze app for Adroid 7

    I recently replaced my Android 4.2 phone with a new Android 7 (Nougat) phone and to my dissappointment that there is not a Waze app available for my phone. Waze is such a useful navigation tool, now I have use a second rate nav aid.

  6. Share route from web to app

    Sharing a route from the waze web let's you send only a link to open in browser. Would be helpful to share a link that will open in your app.

  8. Safe Routes

    I live in Southeast Michigan, but am not from there originally. I traveled to Detroit for work, and the event ran into the late evening. Though Detroit is beautiful, and improving in a lot of ways, there are still a lot of really unsafe areas.

    The Waze app took me down a bunch of side streets to get me to the interstate. It was terribly unsafe, and by the time I realized it was too late to turn around.

    Please. Please.. add safe routes!!!!!!!

  9. Practical algorithm for police "heat map" implementation

    I realize that the "heat map" concept has been mentioned in the past and there are frequent postings about this concept. I did not find in my search of suggestions a practical algorithm to make this useful.
    I think that the postings of random cars on side of road and detritus in the road result in too frequent notifications that are distracting. I do not think that simply adding alerts for every known speed trap is useful.
    A useful modification would be to alert users of locations with frequent police sightings in the past say 30 days only if there…

  10. זיהוי כיוון הנסיעה, הגייה נכונה של שמות הרחובות

    זיהוי כיוון הנסיעה ולא אחרי כמה דקות שאשמע את הצלצול "מחשב מסלול מחדש". הגייה נכונה של שמות הרחובות כמו Ibn Gvirol

  11. Police Officers & Traffic Officers.

    On U.K. motorways we have Police Officers and Highways Agency Traffic Officers. The Police enforce the law and deals with motorway incidents and Traffic Officers are there to help with incidents and assist motorists, but NOT enforce the law. Wazers are constantly highlighting Traffic officers instead of Police Officers when there is no need at all to point them out!! Yes they may look similar but they do not have the same responsibilities, their cars are different colours and their cars are not the same as the police. Please put a button on the hazards page for Traffic Officer or…

  14. "You have arrived at 'HOME'''

    “If I click "Home" to go there, I would like to hear, "You have arrived at 'HOME', instead of what it says 'You have arrived at your 'DESTINATION'". It's much nicer to hear that I have arrived at home. Thanks”

  15. Add voice commentary at the end of your drive when the route you actually went was slower\quicker than what Waze originally presented.

    I want Waze to say, "Good job! You found a faster route! You saved 5 minutes. Other Wazers will thank you." or "The route you chose took you 5 minutes longer. Maybe you should listen to me next time?"

  17. Over speed signal

    When over speed, the app just makes an usual (not alarming) sound and that is it. It would be better if the app continues to make alarming sound (could be an option) each 10 seconds, until speed goes back under the limit. Besides alarm, it could be said in form of repeating warning message like "over speed" (another option).

  18. Waze road works and and blocked roads

    Currently Waze seems to miss many blocked roads and road works (I encountered this problem again in the West End this morning). A bad example was Waze not knowing about a collapsed suspension bridge on an Italian motorway for at least a week while we were there not long ago, so we didn't know we had to take long diversions in the mountains. So could Waze have a 'road works/road closed' button in the system? And could your team assign some people to monitor the media for reports of major disasters etc.?

  20. BUG: Start of trajectory speed control is not in the correct language

    Situation: I live in the Netherlands, but both my iPhone and Waze are set to English (male voice in Waze). But when I approach a trajectory speed control, the warning is spoken in Dutch (female voice). I've seen several mentions of this when searching on Google, so I'm not the only one with this issue.
