You should consider extending waze for taxi booking. You do have a distinct advantage. Taxi driver can use as gps, at the same time pick up jobs... after job picked up, you also provide the best route...
If not available already it would be great if you guys would create a magnet the people could put on their cars so when we're driving down the road we not only see the emblem on our phone but we also see the magnet on cars as we go past them. If they are already available, where can I get one? I just think it would be cool
My route is 60 mile long so the bar at there beginning of my route request shows a zillion hazards and traffic reports al bunched together. I'ld like to be able to easily select those reports before I begin my route to see the severity and weather I should alter my route. I also want to see these reports on the All Turns page.
I often see a message box that's hidden behind the search box when starting the app on my Galaxy S4. The message also disappears before the search box does causing me to miss the messaging. Move one of the boxes so both can be visible.
Sometimes the map sets a house so far back that it puts it on the wrong street. Most of the time it involves driving around the block but sometimes it's not that simple. Every minute counts when delivering pizza. Can't be late, lol.
By letting a user show that there is a specific exit with considerable traffic, either waze should automatically give a different option to be chosen by the driver, or the driver may change the route by coming out earlier or mannually look for different routes
I have a small request for using the navigation: can you set it up so that "My Car" is on the opposite side of the screen from the "destination" and that we can always see at least 5 miles ahead? Having the "car" in the center is a waste of space and not being able to see at least five mile out isn't enough notification of traffic troubles (jams) ahead if you are on the highway.... just my 2 cents.
Please provide a Status page like an ISP would provide -- right now you guys have not been working for many days* (weeks?!) now, with people asking what the hell is going on all over the web, and I can't find a single response from you guys anywhere!
*"Searching for network..."; can't connect to server issue (which seemed to happen to a lot of people back in Dec 2013 too).
More often than not, I know where I'm going, but would like to know about traffic incidents/alerts. As such I like to use waze in alerts only mode. However, every so often, waze will decide that it will turn itself back to full voice navigation even though I did not select that. I do not know what triggers it, but it does continue to happen. Just when I think it's going to stay, the settings get switched. It's quite annoying that it can't keep a setting.
