  2. Re-enable the option of automatically going home or work

    Re-enable the option of automatically going home or work. Annoying to hit NO every time I use waze now. What were you thinking?

  5. Add chime in/out when someone is checking status and change indicator colors.

    Add a chime IN and chime OUT sound when someone is checking status of your arrival.

    Also, because the indicator is yellow with white numbers its hard to see how many are really checking. Change the contrast. Darker number with yellow background.

  6. Share my ride

    Sharing my ride with other waze members for example start a group "westchester to east side manhattan " once they join they get a warning befor you are leaving or can see on smartphone where to wait for the ride
    The rout will have few stops and each rider will contribute to gas cost through waze leaving a service fee with waze
    This is a nice way to share and save energy

  10. Taxi

    I use waze for cab rides as I don't own a car. It would be great to include the "find a taxi app" in waze.

  11. Add mood icon to Drive sharing

    I love to send my family my route when I'm commuting home. But the icon is always the "smiling face", even when i'm stuck in traffic. Couldn't the "mood" icon be shared along with the driving route?

  16. Driving contact location would be nice.

    My wife is a waze and I see that she is driving now but I can not locate her anywhere on the route she is taking. A quick like to show her present location would be nice. You never know when your going to have to drive to pick her up cuz she broke down somewhere along the way.

  17. Sometimes screen gets grayed out after some alert pops up and I become unable to tap and move the map

    When an alert pops up, the map gets grayed out, and after it closes out, sometimes the map stays grayed out forever, so it is inaccessible and I cannot scroll it to see the route ahead. The only way of fixing this is by closing Waze, removing the running app from the memory and opening Waze again, and then it needs to recalculate the route.

  18. Allow the same place to be set as HOME and WORK

    I (and I guess several other waze users) work and live at the same building/address. Home office or shared use, it doesn't matter. There could be an option to set them as the same place.

  19. Unite with Facebook and create a social app called "Ride"

    Unite with Facebook and create a social app called "Ride" in which people publish their route and other people with cars can afford a ride to those people and help each other, with the help of Facebook you can know about the person you want to deal with. It can reduce traffic jams and it improves our society (because we help each other) and we can meet new friends.
    Thanks,
    Sergey.
