  1. Having a stop sign feature on the app and WME

    Have a stop sign callout and a stop appear on the app and for all levels a stop feature for certain nodes or end nodes (probably end nodes most commonly)

  2. Suggest "Warehouse" and/or "Loading Dock" categories for Places in WME

    Lots of warehouses in my area, lots of truck drivers are dropping Places that would meet this criteria. They usually select the Parking Lot category, and i generally end up changing them to Factory/Industrial.

  3. Turning prohibitions in real time (like RTC)

    Turning prohibitions are very common, especially in construction sites

  4. When adding a restriction is not possible to add a passed date even it is a reccuring limit

    if the restriction is valid from 1 Aug to 31 Aug and recurring every year I can't enter it after 1 Aug. This should be possible.

  5. Add closed map suggestions count to profile page

    It'd be great if you could track how many map suggestions you have closed. You can already see your closed UR, PUR, and MP counts on your profile page so it would be great if closed map suggestions could also be added.

    Here is a simple mockup I made of what that could look like: https://i.imgur.com/XajOINK.png

  6. Average speed calculation in average speed zone

    The idea is that once you enter a speed enforcement zone there will be an aditional box that displays the average speed driven inside the enforcement. This allows you to gauge how much you can speed up after stopping or going slow for awhile.

  7. Extra click required before moving place point

    After WME v2.115, a place point requires 2 clicks to move it. When creating a new place point, you can add the stop point. But to move the place point, you have to de-select the place point then re-select it.

  8. Put the House number field before the Street field

    In some countries, House number needs to be before Street. Maybe this can be customisable by country? If not, I believe it's more logical to have House number first (smaller to larger).

  9. Incorporate Place Interface Enhancements Script RPP Editing Options

    The Place Interface Enhancements ("PIE") Script provided an easy way to add RPP's by offering to auto-populate the 'street name' field with values from the nearest street. Optionally, one could have it ignore the checking for the street name from nearby PLRs and PRs:

    (Options):
    - Use street name from closest segment
    - Use city name from closest segment
    - When the primary is "No city" look for an alt city
    - Ignore PLRs & unnamed PR when using closest segment's name and city

    The script stopped working after an update to WME earlier this year. It would be an…

  10. Parking along with the Parking area code and Charging info would be helpful

    Showing the nearest Parking close to destination is Cool, would be good to also see the Parking area code and if that has Charging points (wherever applicable) -
    I am in Stockholm, I usually have to struggle understanding the parking code, for which I can check the charges before I travel.
    With Electric cars becoming more popular, it would be great to have the Parking code combined with a Mark highlighting if cars can be charged.
    Example Stockholm P - which allows free charging or Mer or Incharge which are paid. This info will be really helpful.
    That way can…

  11. Copy and Paste Turn Instructions from one turn to another

    Please allow us to Copy into the clipboard (or similar function) all Turn Instructions from one turn, and Paste them into another turn.

    Quite often, I'm having to replicate the same instructions for different turns at the same junction for those coming from different directions, but turning into the same road. It would be a big timesaver if we could copy TIs into other turns without having to repeat the same steps.

    Thanks for supporting this suggestion! We've added it to the WME team's backlog, and hope to get to it in the near future. We will follow up here when we have an update, or need more info from the community. 

  12. Tell the editor why they can't edit Far Lanes

    If you're below the required editor level to edit Far Lanes, then the Far Lanes interface is visible to you when editing Lane Guidance, but it's dimmed out - and there's no explanation why. For example, in Australia, Far Lanes requires Level 4 or higher - but nowhere in the Waze Map Editor does it mention this. For the user editing, the Far Lanes interface just appears greyed out for them for no apparent reason.

    All that needs to be added is some kind of message that says "You need to be a higher level to edit Far Lanes" whenever…

  13. Closed Place - Permanent/Temporary

    Suggestion:
    "Place Closure" Feature.
    Please provide an option for editors to mark any place as closed, preferably with permanent closure or temporary closure options. Based on these two choices, branching options should be displayed.
    For example, if a place is marked as permanently closed, the reason should be displayed along with an option to delete the place from the map.
    If it is temporarily closed, options for duration and reason should be shown.

    Additionally:
    Display a warning to drivers before starting the journey, along with a red icon indicating that the place is closed.

    Many people I have spoken to…

  14. Disable double click zoom

    An option to disable this feature, or disable it completely. I've never used the double click to zoom in into something. That's the wheel for, or even the buttons on the side of the editor.
    Many times when the WME becomes unresponsive or laggy it is common that while selecting something the selection is not captured, so one tries again to select what ever it was trying to select, however instead of selecting a magic zoom in comes into play.

  15. Inclusão de "Quebra-Mola", também conhecido como Lombada ou ondulação transversal

    Tão ruim quanto um "Pardal" eletrônico são os quebra-molas pela via, muita das vezes sem identificação e sinalização. Se houvesse a opção de inserir esses perigos nas vias no Waze seria excelente para segurança e conforto dos motoristas.

  16. Add residual kilometers for italian "safety tutor" speedtrap on Android Auto

    Hello! In Italy we have highways with "safety tutor", a speedtrap system which calculate average travel time. In Waze phone mode there's a small banner that indicates the remaining kilometers to exit the area, this feature is not available in Android Auto. Whyyy?? It's so useful :)

    Thanks, love you guys!

  17. Time-based restrictions with annual repetition.

    We should be able to place traffic restrictions on a segment, for example in the summer (June 1st to September 30th).

    As the 1 has already passed, we can only place it from today (June 22) and we can only correct it to be correct for the next year after September.

    In this case, it should be possible to insert the total (correct) date of the restriction.

  18. External providers: Sort suggested places by distance with closest first

    WME uses Google Maps as the external provider in Israel and suggests places located in different towns, especially when the edited place belongs to a network. It would help to choose the right place if the suggested places are sorted by distance, with closest places first.

  19. External providers: Don’t suggest extremely far places

    WME uses Google Maps as the external provider in Israel and sometimes suggests places located in other countries, thousands km from the edited place. There should be some filtering to exclude very far places.

  20. External providers: Also suggest places marked as permanently closed (with a proper mark)

    WME uses Google Maps as the external provider in Israel and doesn't suggest places marked in Google as permanently closed. Meanwhile, showing that the place is marked as closed in Google would hint that the place needs additional checking and possibly should be removed from the Waze map.
