  1. Correction needed for Savannah historic district

    From 16 into Savannah, GA. WAZE dictated a right turn on Abercorn but said "Abersham" so I missed the turn. That area is full of one-way streets and Abercorn would have "circled the block" to get me to Lincoln Street.

  2. Ability to edit PUR photos to blur items

    Very often we have to reject a PUR photo when it contains either identifiable people or licence plates. If we had a simple tool in WME that would allow us to blur those details then those pictures could be used. Current situation is quite unbearable since we have to reject way over 50% of PUR photos because of aformentioned reasons. It also affects negatively on user's eagerness to take photos if the ones they've taken before do not end up to use and we currently cannot even tell why those have been rejected.

  3. Time based speed limits

    Speed limits are not always a fixed ones. For example , roads around the schools have a speed limit of 30 kmph during the morning and evening hours. Whereas this limit is not valid for Sundays and during the rest of hours in a day.

  4. Left panel configurability

    Problem for me and apparently for many other people too is that some left panel items I frequently need are on the bottom part and need to scroll to reach those while others I very rarely need are visible all the time. Solution: Make left panel configurable in a way that you could change the order sections appear in it.

    For example I would like to see History, Created by and Last edited by fields higher and would drop height and lock levels to the bottom of the list, it would result in much better usability for me.

  5. Allow to drag a node of a segment with closure

    Dragging of a node is not allowed when the node is of a segment with closure on it, although the ID of the segment that includes the closure does not change. It is suggested to allow it.
    As a temporary solution, it is possible to delete the closure, and then drag the node, and then reenter the closure (but still the closure is removed for the time it takes to complete the change).

  6. Update Request - View recently cancelled route

    It would be extremely helpful on Update Requests to provide the route/path information for a recently cancelled route.

    Often users report an issue shortly after cancelling a route that gave them bad instructions. In these cases, editors can't see what the Waze app was asking them to do, versus what they actually did. Often users forget the precise details of what the bad instructions were.

    If this is already permitted to some degree, perhaps widening the time window my a couple of minutes would help capture more of these.

  8. Events tab should ask to enable the Road Closures layer

    When you select the Events tab, no events will show unless you have the Road Closures layer enabled. When you click the Events tab, there should be a pop up asking "Enable the road closures layer to edit events" with an Enable button, same as when you select the Road Closures tab for a segment if the layer is off. Having the layer off could confuse editors about why they don't see any events listed.

  9. BUS/Motorcycle Lane

    Add the option to mark a lane as a BUS lane.

    If we have 3 lanes -> Turn left | Front | BUS

    We cannot give exact information to the user, because we can only show 2 lanes, because we cannot display the BUS to not mislead the driver.

    In Portugal, motorcycles can ride on the BUS lane, so it also helped motorbike drivers a lot

  10. Improve handling of Routing Option for L1-L3 editors

    Editing segments with Routing Preference (or Routing Option) is only possible for L4+ editors.

    However, WME Beta and WME Prod allow L1-L3 editors to change segments with Routing set to Unfavored/Preferred (i.e. not Neutral), and only gives a very generic error message when saving. Which is rather unproductive.

    My suggestions:
    - Can we improve the wording in the error pop-up?
    - Can we add a warning similar to the one appearing when users select segments that are part of a Junction Box?

    Routing Preference: https://i.imgur.com/bH6gxI2.png
    Current Error: https://i.imgur.com/o96353Mm.png
    JB Warning: https://i.imgur.com/xuRHHoE.png

  11. Allow link RPP and Google addresses

    Why we can link POI but can't link addresses?
    We have a lot of problem with google addresses and have to use different hacks for it.
    I suggest add function linking RPP and Google addresses like in POIs

    Hi all,

    Thank you for voting for this suggestion!

    We’d like to know if this is still relevant, or if the issue was solved through auto-complete for prioritized Waze addresses.

    Please let us know in the comments if it was, so we can close the suggestion.

    Thanks!

  12. WME Road Types

    The current classification of roads on the WME follows the road types in the USA (Freeway, Major and Minor Highways and other road types).
    In Europe, but I think also in other parts of the world, the classification of roads is very different. This creates problems with editing roads, as it is difficult to adapt the WME type to the real situation.
    It is necessary to revise the road classification of the WME according to the real classification of each country so that each country can edit the map in a correct and more real way.

  13. Allow choice in HN street name

    Hi

    Certain streets have a different name or city depending of side.
    It would be great to allow, when adding HNs, editors to specify what name we want to assigne to it when alternate bloc is filled.

    Thanks

  14. Better usability for the turn guidance feature

    Very great that we actually have an preview for the expected turn instruction in the client visible in the WME.

    1. BUT when the input of the user exeeds the length of the preview box, the text is cut off. The text labels in the visual instruction and torwards line are capable of showing 5 letters only, it is not possible to read longer names there at once and it is prone to error (for example typos).This must be improved.
      This doesn't allow easy every day editing and error correction. Draggable road shield boxes and the text labels are pending.

  15. Return to Home in WME Nav Tabs

    This is a small feature to add to the Nav Tabs in the top left of WME, but as I've had my region enlarged as an AM, I find myself further and further away from my main city doing edits and I have to zoom out and drag quite a lot to get back to my city. I would LOVE a simple "Home" icon in the Nav Tabs to zoom me back to a specific spot on the map. Currently my work around is to load my drives and click on a recent drive which brings me close at least.

  16. Enable closure layer button on MTE tab

    Major Traffic Events don't show in the MTE tab when the closure layer is switched off. Similar to the closure tab on segments, please add a button to enable the closure layer on the MTE tab.

  17. URs should show anonymized but user-unique handle for reporter

    The current 100% anonymity of UR reporters makes it impossible for editors to detect reporting patterns of specific Wazers. If URs showed a fully anonymized but user-unique handle for the reporter, editors could identify problematic or abusive patterns. This would save editors time and energy, and allow them easily to report such patterns to community leadership or to Waze for potential action.

    Specifically, editors have long suspected that certain Wazers may: (1) repeatedly flag an issue, or a kind of issue, on which they refuse to accept the editing community's past analysis; (2) submit multiple URs for no clear reason,…

    Thank you to all who submitted and voted for this suggestion, however it is currently not planned due to PII issues associated with tracking URs in this manner. Please make sure to include the UR ID when reporting abusers on the map so that Staff can properly track the case. Often times we are unable to investigate due to no longer having the UR ID once the UR is closed and deleted.

  18. About adding a river in the waze editor

    About adding a river in the waze editor

    It takes a very long time to add a river

    I think it would be easier if you could write a river as easily as you would write a road.

  19. conditional tolls

    There are some toll segments that go pretty paralell to the public roads, so time savings are more related to traffic (<5 min when comparing vs toll roads).
    Waze always will choose the toll segment but for a regular wazer time savings will not be enough to use toll vs public road.
    A conditional that let waze to avoid tolls when savings are less than X minutes will help wazers pockets.

  20. 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…
