  1. More privacy required

    I know about the anonymous option, but this is not my point.
    I would like to have the feauture to everyone to be only your nickname from Waze client, at maximum, to be shown. So, if you're logged in to Facebook, as I am, it won't appear your picture from Facebook or your name either; instead I would recommend to shown only the Waze emotion and the Waze nickname. To avoid any persuit, identity anything else that makes you easy to be track.
    So, only your friends will see your picture on the map and your name.

  4. "more time"

    I need more time to confirm or "not there" hazards, police, etc. Why not 30 sec? There have been a few times when I pressed "not there" only to find that the hazard was just a little further down the road.

  6. Show as Navigation Option

    Waze does not show as a navigation optiot in the Google Navigation System. Other apps, such as, Scout, Google navigation, Google Maps, show as navigation options. Waze does not appear on the Android Navigation option screen.

    It should be an easy fix for the Android system to recognize Waze navigation.

  9. IOS - Please add option for thicker roads

    I am driving in dense areas (Paris in France). Would it be possible to have a thicker road display because sometimes I can't differentiate the purple from other roads. Thanks

  11. I need help to find out why my normal route is not given us an option anymore.

    For whatever reason a couple of days ago my normal option is now not given us a route when I go to navigation. I'm not sure what happened, or if there was an update. I am not happy anymore.

  13. Show distance covered and time passed while driving

    It would be great if waze can display the time passed and the distance i covered in km or miles since i started driving when my app is running. This can be optional and the distance covered display can be turned on and off using settings.

  14. Dynamic exit & reentry for highway driving when accident / standstill up ahead on route.

    When an accident or stand still traffic has been reported on your route, on a highway - recommend an exit and reentry point ahead of time to avoid sitting in heavy congestion or missing an exit opportunity.

  15. Add direction to Gas station names

    When updating prices for Gas statitions if there are two either side of the road you can't tell which is which. Sometimes they have differnet prices (not often I grant you) and its not possible to know which is which. If you added Northbound, Eastbound etc. would make it clearer.

  16. sound for instructions very choppy

    The sound on my saying galaxy s2 is very, very choppy. I hear about 1 of every 3 or 4 words. My roommate's phone, same type, has the same problem. This makes it difficult to actually use the app.

  18. Veterinary Emergency Services Category

    Please add a category for pet emergency services. Having an option to find nearby hospitals is great, but for those of us with pets as well, in a time of crisis it can be difficult to find that information. Thank you!
