  3. Electric vehicle charging locations

    Waze should have a navigation option to select electric vehicles charging locations just like gas stations.

  4. Toggle between alerts popping up at bottom of screen

    Alerts for traffic, pulled over cars, crashes and the like used to pop up on a little banner above the app. Now they appear right above where ETA is shown and is honestly a distraction. Alerts at the top of the map were easier to process and less of a distraction. If there isn't already, ability to toggle between two options of alerts in top banner and alert at bottom of map

  5. Avoid areas

    During my drives from home to work and vice versa, I would like to avoid some areas because in this areas the traffic fluctuate really quickly
    Waze is always proposing me to go through them, but once I'm in these area, I'm stuck for a very long time
    And when Waze is proposing me to go through them, I am not able to see how is the traffic on the main road of my drive

  6. Ask for avoiding (or not) tollbooth at the beginning of the drive

    I think it will be better when planning a drive on Waze that the application ask if we want to avoid tollbooth or not for this drive
    Because it's annoying to change the parameter or to check if the parameter is already off or not

  8. Traffic volume (number of vehicles) per road segment per 5-min interval

    It would be great to have a real time information about the number of vehicles that pass through a given location (sensor measuring this info) or through a road segment in five-minute time intervals. Such sampling will give an excellent snapshot of the current status, which is valued by anyone on the road. Especially relevant for city centres but also major highways/freeways.

  9. Waze on Adriod Auto

    Been using Waze for some time on Andriod Auto and find one area that needs help. When trying to alert other Wazers of hazards or other items, I find them buried way down in some menus when trying to find a road hazard for example. Maybe find a way to put the popular ones, like road construction and others as hot buttons when you choose the orange circle to pull it up. Or even better allow the user to put 6 of the most used notices as soon as you touch it. This way you don't have to grind down…

  10. Speed Limit Icon - left or right side display

    Hi Team,
    Ability to select either left or right side screen display.
    For those drivers that are right hand side drive having this on bottom left isn’t practical.

    Also ability to increase size of display

  12. Give the option to choose/prefer shortest distance routes over fastest ones

    There used to be a setting you could change that allowed your app to give you shortest distance rides, rather than fastest. They took it away for some unknown reason. Bring it back - Waze is currently AWFUL for taxi drivers because the app gives us routes that go way out of the way to save a few minutes of time. That's something we can't do.

  14. Google Play Services Permission required

    Prior to first time opening waze you need to ensure that 'Google Play Services' has permission to access 'Phone'. If 'Google Play Services' doesn't have access to 'Phone' then waze will skip the start screen (and thus you won't have accepted the t&c's) and you won't see a map (it will be a blank map) and the guest account will not be properly initiated. You won't receive any error messages and the waze app will act up.

  15. Vista horizontal

    El cambio de diseño de la vista en horizontal es lo peor que habéis hecho, entre la barra de "mi Waze" y la barra de búsqueda, queda muy poco espacio para el mapa. Para los que tenemos pantalla fija en el coche ya no es viable utilizar Waze.

  16. Sending changes on map directly from waze app

    That will be great, when I could send map update directly from app. i.e When I'm riding with waze and there is roadworks with closed road. There should be possibility to put information about closed road, and new driving directions should take it into account.

  18. Tolbadge

    Als ik een route kies waarin ik door de toltunnel ga, kan ik een tolbadge toevoegen. Echter als ik hierop klik, kom ik in een lange lijst terecht. Handiger zou zijn om direct de desbetreffende tolbadge te kunnen selecteren.

    De toltunnel Liefkenshoek in Antwerpen is namelijk onvindbaar voor mij op dit moment. Zoektermen die gebruikt zijn:
    - BE
    - Lief(kenshoek)
    - Tunnel
    - Antwerpen

  19. Low bridge clearance

    I have seen people post about having the ability to set low bridge clearance. This is not a feature being asked for by commercial truck drivers. These are features that the RV driver needs to have. The fifth wheel that I pull to go camping with my family needs 13 ft 6 in of clearance. If I am using Waze I would like to know my route is clear of low clearance Bridges!

  20. Camera

    With dash cams growing in popularity I think a Waze cam offering would be a great idea. It could be embedded with analytics to try to auto detect hazards such as objects on road or stopped vehicles. When the driver stops driving, the Waze app on their phone could then show them pictures of what it detected using analytics and ask the user to verify/confirm those items. Hopefully you guys can do something like this in the future!
