      • Keep me logged in

        The cartouche login page has a nice checkbox named "Keep me logged in ".

        It doesn't work, I have to sign in on every visit.

          • Handling tunnels

            There are several problems with tunnels. One thing is that editing the maps are difficult when there are roads above the tunnels.

            I suggest a new road type "Tunnel" that can make it easier to edit layers in Cartouche.

            A tunnel road type may in the future also give several new features in Waze.

            Some people are afraid of driving in long tunnels, and may want to avoid them. This is possible with highways today.

            When I drive into a tunnel the GPS stops working. In the future Waze may simulate my route inside the tunnel instead of giving me…

            • Adding text to house numbers

              It is currently impossible to add anything different to a house number than text, while a lot of house numbers use text in their house numbers.

              There are house numbers that look like the following:

              91-1234
              64a
              288N 1460W
              64#2

              but currently they cannot be entered as such.

                planned  ·  krankyd responded

                we are working on adding this. Hopefully will be available soon.

              • Road surface as checkbox for Dirt

                We over here in Latvia don't have a lot of good ways. We have rather complex road network and our biggest problem ir road classification. Even some of our primary highways are dirt roads but they are maintained very well. We need a checkbox to describe a road surface as unpaved and maintain our road classification/representation right. Can you help us make our country's wazers happy?

                • reduce the 24-48 hr delay to say 30-60 mins

                  I am all enthusiastic about contributing road names and house numbers for my local area. But by the time 24-48 hours have passed, I will be much less so. Give me the ability to contribute data much sooner.

                  • Make a grid on Cartouche with edit status per tile

                    Make a grid on cartouche map editor so you can check out every square you have done completely (e.g. status: open, pending, closed [by user] )Now it's difficult to finish a city without forgetting some final editing. Squares of about 1 by 1 kilometers would be nice

                      Add a route planner to Cartouche, making it possible to see which route Waze would choose from one place to another. This would make it easier finding problems on a route

                      • Allow Lane Guidance information

                        Allow entering lane guidance information in cartouche.

                        An extra attribute could be added that would allow you to specifiy how many lanes the road has.

                        Would also need some way of specifying what lanes connect to which road.

                        • Locked Indicator for road segments

                          Enhance the map editor so it could would show BOTH the direction (< or > or blank or little pink astrices) AND whether a segment was LOCKED or NOT LOCKED, it would make this task a lot easier. Since you can do pink, is it possible could enhance the Update Maps to use Red and Pink to indicated if a road segment is unlocked.

                          Red > or < :for unlocked one ways
                          Red --- :two way road that is not locked
                          Pink * asterice

                          BLUE when things are locked.

                          Blue > or <
                          Blank (the current look) for two way…

                          • Heatmap layer to show activity

                            I want to know which areas to concentrate my time on. If I knew which areas were getting used the most I could build out side streets, improve the roads etc.

                                • Restore the old method to identify the direction of a street (A and B letters at the extremities)

                                  Allow to identify the direction of the street creation, signing the extremities with the letters A and B.
                                  It's the old system used at the start of the Waze project and then left. Often, too often, I need to revert the direction of a one-way street.

                                  • Checking View of Cartouche.

                                    Have an option to select each type of road data and display it on the road segment instead of the road name. This would permit rapid visual verification that everything has been edited correctly.
