  1. Allow Junction Boxes and Paths to exist together

    When editing, there are many times that you need to restrict a turn that would require the use of a Junction Box (JB) to accomplish. The issue is that if a different route, that does not fit in the JB, needs to have Paths set up, we have to choose one or the other.

    We need the ability to set Paths through a JB

  2. Polygons in WME should just be a thick border instead of a full fill

    To allow for easier interaction with polygons and segments & places inside polygons, change the polygons to be a thick border instead of it being a filled polygon.

    With the expansion of features that include many polygons beyond just places (JBs, Permanent Hazards, Natural features, etc), it would make it much easier to work with these shapes.

    OpenStreetMap does this very well.

  4. Make the UR Issues Tracker a Tracker and not a Filter

    Currently the Issues Tracker is not a tracker, but rather a filter because it hides other URs (issues) on the map.

    Ad an option not to hide URs on the map and display the default view (default setting in tracker)... so yes, we need to have some default options (that each user can change)... and when this option not to hide URs on the map to display the default view (including URs).

    For example:
    I always leave everything to see on my map - my default.
    When searching for new URs or looking for URs with answers from reporters, I…

  5. Two-Way Traffic Ahead Permanent Hazard

    This permanent hazard would warn users that the road they are travelling on transitions from one-way to two-way traffic. This would not be used for sections of road where traffic gives way to oncoming traffic temporarily (see the suggestion for Narrow Road Permanent Hazard), but instead for roads that are one-way only for a distance and suddenly transition to two-way, as to warn the user that there will be oncoming traffic.

    • Ex 1: Drivers heading south on the one-way must be in the right lane to continue onto the two-way road, where traffic from the opposing two-way direction does…

  6. Expand character limit for the name of an MTE

    Currently the character limit for the name of an MTE is 25. Common MTE names often come very close or exceed 25 characters, such as "Electric Ave Bridge Replacement" (31 characters). It would be helpful to have the character count increased, possibly by another 10-20 or more.

  8. Allow for issue tracker to show results in descending order

    Currently the default view of issue tracker results is ascending (newest to oldest.) It would be nice to allow the results to show in reverse (oldest to newest.) Sometimes I want to address the oldest issues first so that there are not so many backlogged.

  9. Manage closures in the Issue Tracker menu

    Live closures are one of the most important contributions that editors can make to the Waze map
    The functionality of viewing past closures on the map has recently been added, which adds complexity to the view.
    This suggestion involves managing closures from the Issue Tracker, allowing you to filter those that have been completed, those that are about to expire, or those within a period of time; or by zones in the same way as the UR, PUR or MP
    I guess this sug includes this one: https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-map-editor-suggestions/suggestions/47514620-show-only-active-closures and this one https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-map-editor-suggestions/suggestions/45584869-move-closures-history-to-the-closures-tab

  10. Add general destination information to URs

    URs have been improved by adding more information in WME 2.206, and it would be nice to continue to add information that doesn't jeopardize the privacy of the reporter.

    My idea would be to add information on how the stop point of a user's route was obtained - whether it be a house number, house number interpolation, RPP, Google address, Waze place, Google place, etc. Specifics on the geographic location wouldn't be needed, it would just be very beneficial to know how the stop point was chosen. We get a lot of URs complaining about navigation ending at the wrong…

  11. Display router-enabled U-turns as always green

    WME displays some U-turn restrictions as red when routing will treat them as green. This is VERY confusing.

    Specifically, we are told that when a driver following a Street roadway type reaches a junction node to a Parking Lot Road, the Waze router is allowed to offer a U-turn at that junction node -- REGARDLESS of the U-turn setting displayed by WME (we are also told this is true of Street/Private Road junction nodes as well -- and perhaps others?).

    WME should not show editors red turn restrictions when in fact drivers will experience green turn restrictions. This can lead…

  12. Default new users in US and UK to Imperial units

    Since the wonderful new Edit Suggestions tool has been released, we have seen many (too many) suggestions from well-meaning users in the US to change speed limits to values like 16 or 31 mph. Obviously these users were set by default to use metric units without realizing it.

    If a user tries to edit using the WME for the first time in a country that uses Imperial speed limits (which I believe is only the US, UK, Anguilla, Antigua, Barbados, and the Cayman Islands), their units should automatically be set to Imperial by default.

  13. Allow combining chargers when merging EVCS

    When merging EVCS, give users the option to include both sets of chargers. For some reason, some networks (ahem, ChargePoint) sometimes list multiple charger sites in the same parking lot or garage. If we try to merge them, we have to select one or the other set of chargers. Please add an option to include both sets.

  14. UR User Preference Panel - Combine passes/permits into expendable list

    Since User Preferences have been introduced into User Reports, solving URs has become much easier. One drawback is that the list can be extremely long if a user has many passes or permits, forcing the input field well off the bottom of the screen. One example found recently has 722 passes, as shown in this video:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/15iVQMdq9muJoGqItdFZ26Ctx031hu2sY/view?usp=drive_link

    Our suggestion is that passes are combined into one initial entry - "added passes", and there is an option to select it, which opens up the list.

  15. Parking lot type (motorcycles-only, cars-only, both)

    It's very common, at least in Colombia, parking lots only for motorcycles and it's really dissapointing to arrive at a parking lot suggested by Waze, and realize that it's a motorcycle-only parking lot and you're driving a car.
    Please add a new property in WME to choose the type of parking lot: motorcycles-only, cars-only, or both, and add a new feature in app to filter by parking lot type.

  16. Allow forcing a closure to expire (instead of deleting the closure)

    The WME shows now the status of all recently finished and all active closures. A deleted closure will not be visible anymore.
    For that reason, we prefer to "finish" closures instead of deleting them.
    It would be nice to have an option in the context menu of closures, to make the closure expire, by setting its end moment to now.

  17. Move Previous Build Button

    The small bar with tile build information moves and sometimes covers elements as different parts of WME are accessed. With the exception of my phone in landscape orientation, there seems to be an excessive amount of extra space on the tile bar. My suggestion is to move it to the tile bar on the left, near the settings button.

  18. Recategorizing UR's when solving

    Add a feature to WME to recategorize the Solved UR's when closing those. This would give Waze a true insight of what reports are really needed and vice versa, what are rare and could actually just be within General Error category etc. Based on my research of all Solved UR's in Finland for last 3 months only about 50% were in right category.

    In my opinion this would help to reduce and refocus UR categories to better match with reality which in turn helps users when they are reporting meaning less UR's with wrong category -> Better data and better…

  19. 5 Digits for Gas prices in Colombia

    In colombia the prices of Gas and Diesel have 5 digits, but when a lot of wazers wants to update the prices, in the App we find that in the moment to write the updated price at the 4 digit in the cell the cursor jumps to next cell, this produces in the map wrong prices and wrong ranking of Cheap and Expensive gas stations.

  20. Different layout for RPPs: visible numbers

    Hi,
    in my city there is a big number of RPPs due to side roads.
    I often add them and, since there no way to copy-paste an RPP (this could also be a suggestion), I often copy road's name, then add the number and submit.
    Maybe that sometimes I forget/miss to Apply road name/number, so I get no-way, no-city, no-number, but RPP's triangle doesn't allow me to notice my mistake.
    It would be nice if (at least) the address number appeared on the RPP within the map, in order to check its value.
    Another use for the enhancement would be…
