  1. Manual input for zoom level

    With all the new zoom levels being planned, clicking the +/- to go up/down in zoom gets very tiring. This suggestion is to add a "Manual" number input field between the + and - to

    a) display the zoom level (instead of using a tooltip) - disadvantage of tooltip is you have to hover your cursor over the zoom control

    b) allow you to manually input the number you want the zoom to jump to. For example, you are at zoom level 20. You want to get to zoom level 12. Instead of clicking - 8 times, you type "12"…

  3. Routes in a Junction Box should have different gradients of colors

    When selecting a segment entering a Junction Box all possible routes are shown with a green color when the route is valid and red when it is invalid/forbidden. These routes can be mixed and sharing the same segment. To see which segments belong to specific routes the editor must hover the mouse pointer to the exiting arrow. The idea here is to be able to visualize without doubt each route (for instance, when sharing the JB screenshot)

  4. [Request] Allow to make streets two way temporarily

    Allow to make streets two way temporarily, like closures, but the other way around.
    Sometimes construction works require you to open another street and turns. And you cannot do this in time by editing map. You can close the streets, but you cant OPEN the streets for some time. I mean one way or with restricted turns.
    So we need an option to temporarily bypass one way setting and closed turns penalty. This may be called Openers :)

  5. Touristic Routes...

    Touristic Routes

    In my country, Portugal, as in almost all countries, we have beautiful places to visit, cities to see and, for that, among the various means of transport that we can access, of course, the motor vehicle is one of them... and for that, you need a road to drive...

    When we are on vacation for example, we want to go and visit these places and we map routes, marking it in a diary (or something similar) what we want to visit and see...

    In WME, some of these routes could be defined by the editors, be pre-defined and…

  6. Have the possibility to select BUS icon in LG

    The request is very simple.
    In WME when setting LG having the option to mark one lane as BUS (not with any direction or routing options behind it)
    During Navigation display the arrows and BUS when Lane Guidance is shown.

    Example: Left Straight Straight Right one lane is bus
    Shown as: Left Straight BUS Right during LG in waze

  7. Editor Rank Level is not fair

    Waze's point rewards system for editors is unfair and does not promote the entry of new editors or even the permanence of newcomers.

    From Level 1 to Level 2 - Require 3000 map edits
    From Level 2 to Level 3 - Require 25000 map edits

    It´s not feasible for a normal person using just WME without bath scripts

    this will result in a community that does not renew itself.
    It will drive away new editors and weaken the community

    please review this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Alternative house number

    Often the house numbers are not exactly in order. As, for example, there was an update in the street number and some houses remain in the old number. Or even, the same street has the same number in different neighborhoods.
    With this, Waze could allow alternative numbers which are house numbers that are not following the "correct" numerical order. Still, it could allow putting letters in the numbering, like "505 A", "505 B"...

  10. Auto set checkboxes "No street" and "No city"

    Remove the "No street" and "No city" boxes by automatically setting the segments with the flag active if the name and/or city is not entered and vice versa.

  11. The option to turn off certain items in map display, like schools, libraries, parks, etc.

    As the subject says, it would be nice if we could un-clutter the display by having the ability to turn OFF certain items on the map display like schools, churches, libraries, parks, etc.

    Thanks for the suggestion!


    As we are currently moving forward with adding this for natural features, we'd like to implement that first, and then check back to see if this is still relevant after that feature is live.  

  12. Dark Mode in WME

    You know you want it.

  13. Include Lane Guidance with URs in purple provided route

    Currently when we get a UR, we can see what primary instructions were given to users at junctions. Now that we have lanes, it would be helpful in diagnosing problematic lane configurations if we could see what lane guidance information was presented to the user as well.

  14. Revise points awarded for different edit types

    Some types of edits are time/labor intensive (adding HNs for example) but earn few points. Others, such as adding RPPs or new streets earn more points and can be done quickly. As a result some edits that really need work but earn few points are neglected. Please take a look at making points earned more equitable based on time/effort needed.

  15. Allow direct editing of alt names and cities

    Currently alt names or cities can be changed only by deleting the existing name and re-creating a new alt name. Please allow direct editing of alt names. Also it would be great if primary and alt names were draggable so an alt name could be promoted to the primary name without deleting and recreating.

  16. Improve RPP editing when it conflicts with HN layer

    When adding or editing RPP, if there is a conflict with the HN layer (i.e. too far), then the WME issues an error that prevents you from saving your edit. Thus, you cannot add or update this RPP.

    To resolve the issue you need to perform the following steps:
    1. Update/Remove the address in HN layer
    2. Wait for next (successful) map build
    3. Add the RPP

    This is an annoying procedure that should and can be avoided.

    The issue can be handled in one of the following ways:
    1. Verify the RPP against the most updated data either in…

  17. Ability to reorder or select primary picture

    Allow the editor to select the primary picture shown in the app that best represents the location for the driver. Another option is to allow drag and drop ordering of all the pictures available in order of precedence.

  18. New Parking Lot Subcategory - Curbside Pickup Parking

    We have the option to select if a business has a Curbside Pickup option, but we have no way to designate where this area is. I feel as though this would a great addition to WME and the app overall

  19. Have a checkbox for a Gas Station to be able choose if it has a different price for cash vs credit or even cash/credit vs membership card

    If a gas station places could have an option to choose if there are two different prices for gas depending on how you pay would be very helpful. For example, Cumberland Farms here in the states always has 2 different prices; one for cash/credit and another for their Smartpay App/card

  20. Show a character counter for entering a name of an event

    Since the name length of a traffic event is technically restricted also the WME limits the name input after the maximum length ist reached
    (https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-map-editor-suggestions/suggestions/41814004-limit-name-input-in-event-mode implemented).

    It would be even more helpful if there would be a char counter that shows the remaining length for the name.

    This requested behavior is already the case for entry boxes of map comments and URs.
