  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Option to avoid/allow tolls for current trip only (instead of having to dig in settings)

    I'll describe the use-case with an example:
    User selects a route without Tolls
    Route gets recalculated (wrong turn/closure/traffic/preference)
    New route includes Tolls
    There are 2 workarounds currently. Either check the route repeatedly and make sure the route is indeed avoiding tolls, or go into settings and enable the avoid tolls toggle (and remember to disable after the trip).

    My suggestion is to avoid tolls for the current trip only (or allow if the toggle is on the other position).

    Happy to hear your feedback and discuss.

  9. Disable lane guidance on some intersections

    It would be great to disable lane guidance on some intersections, so the user will not view the next lane guidance until he cross the intersection.

  10. Closing URs that are no more in your editing area

    I can edit the area of a UR when I first answer it because it is in my edit area. But sometimes I do reach the expiry date of the editing area in the middle of working on this UR. Because of that, I can't even close the UR I started working on.
    It would be great if there will be an option to close a UR you started working on even if this UR is now outside of your editing area.

  11. Map Editor: Check level abuse / change policy to gain better level

    On Map Editor it's near to impossible to gain better level.
    Some users are usual to block to level 3,4 or 5 segment like dead end street in residential area or park path. If you ask to unlock a segment, nobody do it or maybe somebody "steal" the update.
    So high rank users get every day more point, for user also with map competence it's an infinite purgatory.

  12. 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.

  13. Fill place data with linked Google place data if those are blank in WME

    I often create a place and link Google place to it first to see/verify the address etc. Feels like very dumb double work when at least the name/city/address is in that linked Google place already, it would be very nice if WME could pull those from that entry when linking it and autofill those IF the corresponding fields are empty in place properties. And of course those must remain editable after that also.

  15. Remove RS update location on https://www.waze.com/fr/user/editor/*

    Since RS are in wme, on the editor page those edition are link to 0,0 position.
    Would it be possible to improve the visualization of these editions because it affects the readability of the map?

  17. Highlight node closures

    It would be good if there can be a marking of closures if they contain junction node closures. If there are multiple closures on segments (daily from 7-15 for 4 weeks, for example), and you want to change the node closures, it's not possible to determine which have it and which don't without going into the closure. If you then go back out, you return to the top of the list of closures, so it's tedious to keep track where you were.

  18. Disable automatic kinetic / inertial panning of the map

    With decent search functions and new zoom levels, I feel that the kinetic panning of the map behavior is not necessary. I sometimes find it to be a nuisance since I tend to pan the map past my intended point sometimes. Currently, I use a script to make the map static and find this behavior much better to direct.

  19. Inbox indicator should show in the feed, not hide behind the little bell

    Inbox indicator should show in the feed, not hide behind the little bell.

    When sending a forum message to new users they will often not replay because they just DO NOT SEE the notification. The notification was moved from the feed to hide in the menu bar behind a little counter besides a bell icon. It is just not clear enough.

    Please make it so that one cannot mis any inbox messages in WME.
