  1. I495 on long island

    When driving to Long Island, waze insists on traveling on I495. There are so many parkways without trucks on Long Island that you can make better time, yet every time I travel to Long Island it heads towards 495. Today I headed up Northern Parkway,, which waze was heading to eventually, in 8 fun filled miles of sitting. I got off when I saw a sign to Northern Parkway, 4 miles earlier, and took 3 minutes off of my time. I love waze, but Long Island driving is not waze driving. It stears you towards the interstate!

  2. Markers for Emergency Service Stations

    An awesome addition to the waze map editor would be the addition of emergency service station markers and permanent building markers / icons with two types for example:
    Emergency tap (single tap on any of the icons will add it to your route)
    - Hospitals (Marked with a red and white "H")
    - Police Stations (Marked with a house shape outline & a badge inside)
    - Fire Stations (Marked with a house shape outline & Fire Axe or fire truck inside)
    Passive Icons
    - Schools (that have a highlighted zone area around them when route passes though and an alert…

  3. Add On Road Hazard “slow vehicle”

    We passed two vehicles going less than 50 in a 70 zone with their flashers blinking in the right lane. Allow to add “slow vehicle” hazard in road to alert truckers and others traveling the speed limit.

  4. Roundabout instruction at dead end streets

    Disable roundabout instruction at the end of dead end streets. In our country it is extremely rare to have a dead end street (cul-de-sac) ending with a roundabout, at the same time Waze app often suggests to drive to the end of a nearby cul-de-sac and make a u-turn in order to switch direction.

  5. Lane closures

    The possibility for us editors to close lanes on for example highways.

    We'd indicate which lane is closed and a RoadShield like box would appear showing arrows so that users can change lanes early to the non close ones.

  6. Avoid school zones

    We need to be able to choose to avoid school zones. Waze takes me through several school zones on my way home. When you don't know the area, you don't know how to go around them. This is really frustrating. The speed slows down to 20 in most zones around here.

  7. Mark for "No Trucks Allowed"

    In Buckeye, Arizona there is a law prohibiting semi traffic in residential areas. With interstate construction it's creating backups and people are looking for routes around it. It's all well and good till a semi tries to drive through our golf community on a road that the city extended a couple of years ago to give residents easier access to Verrado Way. The semi's hit the reflectors marking the cart path crossings. They hit the curbs that weren't designed for truck dimensions. They also come dangerously close to children waiting on the sidewalk for their school busses. The street I'm…

  8. Control point / guard house on road

    I would like to recommend Waze add a map editing / issue feature for a road control checkpoint. A checkpoint is a common element of various roads around the world and would be important for Waze to add the ability to indicate it.

  10. SLUR behavior (speed limit update request)

    Hi,
    a few month ago Irad told to make suggestions about SLUR, I took my time but here it is :

    In the beginning, we had a SLUR for every request, and there were way too much of them because sometimes there is a lag in showing the new speed limit so people were reporting speed limit that were already good, and also because speed limit were not visible in the client until you exceeds the limit.

    The idea of grouping them making cluster was implemented (against our will), and according to Merav last time I spoke with her about…

    Hey!
    Thank you for this suggestion.

    As it was announced in the forum we are currently working on improving the SLUR workflow and user experience.
    This suggestion will be taken into consideration in the work.

    So, thank you again we will update accordingly.

  11. Invisible RTC's and visible TBR's

    Add the ability to control the visibility of TBR and RTC in the client (and define it in WME).
    They say they often use the wrong type, just to match the required visibility.

  12. modify navigation to Bombo Headland and Quarry

    After recently speaking to sightseers looking for Bombo Headland while walking from Darien av I asked them what navigation tool they use. The name Waze came up. Sightseers navigating with Waze to Bombo Headland and/or Quarry are taken into Darien avenue, a residential street. I have recently successfully modified Google maps to direct navigation to the carpark at Bombo Beach which is the intended direction from Kiama council and is closer to these wonderful sightseeing places. Please see example here:- http://ow.ly/MBgg50DFXBp

  13. Restricted areas: L5 users can restrict Rank 6 segments

    With restricted areas, a level 5 (or Level X user depending on what the final level will be when released in production/country setting) could currently add a restriction to a level 6 segment.

    Steps: find a rank 6 segment, draw an area on it => The segment is restricted.

    This may be a WAD (similar to closures for people who have closure permissions), but it's still risky and lowers the protection of the rank system. If the user deletes the area restriction right after the map update, the problem cannot be identified without staff intervention.

  14. Implement reCAPTCHA v3

    With the recent release of version 3 of reCAPTCHA (the thing you may get to see when you log in and the system suspects you may be a bot instead of a user), it would be a great idea to upgrade to the latest version. We've had several users who have had to fill in the CAPTCHA protection every time for some weird reason (I suspect someone in their neighbourhood is to blame), which could be alleviated with the new system. The system now gives you a score between 0 and 1 to gauge how trustworthy the request is. That…

  15. Selecting a search result shouldn't reset the zoom level

    When using the WME search box to find a road, it would be really nice if WME could leave the current zoom level well alone rather than always resetting it to level 3.

    Even if it just defaulted back to level 4 that'd be an improvement, but jumping back out to 3 means we then always have to zoom back in at least one step if we want to be able to select a street segment. And even at L4, anyone looking to do some work on point places would then need to zoom in one step more before they…

  16. Improvements in segment selection for road closures

    Sometimes it's necessary to select multiple segments to perform a road closure either for MTE or for a conventional closure. After you have several segments selected, you accidentally select a node and all work is lost (the section disappears). I suggest making a modification that prevents the disappearance of the selection of these segments and notifies the editor that you selected a node and it will not be possible to make the respective closure (before or at the moment of trying to save). Obviously the idea is to give you the opportunity to remove the node from the selection and…

    I'm not sure if it's a minor-bug or intended, but I ask you to take a look:

    Issue regarding Map Editor Beta and Production.

    :arrow: When you find a new place waiting for approval, if you click on the red arrow everything runs smooth, but if you feel the need to click on the yellow arrow to check what's that place is about before approving it (sometimes you can't tell just by the name title), notice it isn't possible to change the address... well maybe it's ok at this point before approving it.

  18. Address localization

    lease allow localization of address field just as it is done in search results, so it would be possible to have "%{street} %{housenumber}" instead of "%{housenumber} %{street}" for some languages.

  19. Allow taking a Place picture from Streetview

    Requirements: the Streetview panel is open and the place layer is on

    Then: allow creating a box on the Streetview panel. When a box is drawn add a bar saying: now select a place to apply this picture.
    Add an X on the box to delete it. Allow the user to resize the box.
    Set a minimum size and a fixed ratio (the one used by the client) for a decent resolution.
    Drawing a new box removes the previous one if present.

    If then the user clicks on a place, ask him:

    "would you like to set this selection as…

  20. Show house numbers on smaller zoom

    Currently the layer of house numbers only works on the the zoom levels 7-10. Please enable it starting from zoom 5.
