  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Connect an Advertising Pin to its Place on the WME

    Very often it happens that advertising pins are not placed in the correct place on the map, which leads to routing errors. It would be very useful to be able to link these Pins to the corresponding Place entered by the editors in the correct place in the WME, so that the routing to these destinations works correctly. (as we already do for the link to Places on Google Maps).

    Hey!

    Thank you for this great suggestion.

    We currently have an internal process in place to address this issue, and therefore won’t be developed as a feature in the WME.

    If you encounter any issue with advertised location. Please let your coordinators know about it, and they will inform the SCM, so we will be able to check this.

    Best,
    Hezi

  6. Feet to Yards please!

    Please give us the option to select Yards (or metres) instead of Feet for distances in the UK. We have been brought up on using yards for distances under a mile (but we are able to use metres as they are similar). Feet as a measure is rarely used in the UK now.

  7. Differentiate between area map comments and point comments

    It would be great if it would be made possible to select to only see point map comments and/or area map comments.

    Area map comments are quite intrusive, leading to a lot of editors switching off the comment layer. As a result they sometimes miss useful information and make unnecessary edits.

    If you can choose to only see one type of comment, that would be very helpful.

  8. Show the source of an UR: app or livemap

    Users can now create URs from the livemap, at any location, while UR created via the app are automatically located at the actual position of the user.
    When handling an UR, it is useful to know if the UR has been created via the app, by a user actually present at the location, or via the livemap, which allows to create a UR at any location.
    Knowing the source helps analysing the UR.

  9. Add support for Passing Lane Alerts

    Add functionality when on main single lane roads so the User can opt to display the distance to the next passing lane. The location and length of passing lanes would be added by editors and would give drivers an indication of how long until the next passing lane (and once in the lane, how long until it ends), potentially preventing drivers from taking unsafe risks and passing when not safe.

    Passing lanes are used extensively in New Zealand and Australia, and I imagine are also used around the world.

  10. I495 on long island

    When driving to Long Island, waze insists on traveling on I495. There are so many parkways without trucks on Long Island that you can make better time, yet every time I travel to Long Island it heads towards 495. Today I headed up Northern Parkway,, which waze was heading to eventually, in 8 fun filled miles of sitting. I got off when I saw a sign to Northern Parkway, 4 miles earlier, and took 3 minutes off of my time. I love waze, but Long Island driving is not waze driving. It stears you towards the interstate!

  11. Additional camera types, with names and TTS defined by community

    July 2020, Waze has three camera types: speed, red light, dummy. It is clear talking to different community leaders that the requirements for specific cameras vary from country to country. Thus, we are asking for the ability to add new camera types per country, with the ability to input into text to speech (TTS), and on/off toggle alert in the app. These could be provided by form, similar to new gas station brands, etc. by a country's leadership.

    Alternatively, collect a list of camera types from the communities to create a long list, and allow countries to turn them on/off…

  14. Apply lane name by clicking "enter"

  15. Events: additional tickbox "event needs push notification"

    Requesting push notifications for events through the editors' community still doesn't work very well and is not rewarding.

    Now contributors get a notification if their event was published by Waze staff but they get no notification about the event being reviewed at first. If Waze decided to not send a notification, the contributor doesn't get to know the reason, nor the information that the decision has been made!

    When I enter major events I -as a local member- often know that they have a high impact on traffic in the near area.

    I suggest adding a tickbox to clearly show…

  16. One Speed Camera (or similar) for various segments/roads...

    Speed Cameras...

    Currently, when a speed camera is cataloged on the map, it only serves the way/segment in which one driver/Wazer travels, being placed in the direction of traffic, acknowledging its presence in the app about 500 meters before.

    However, there are access ways to the main road where that camera is located, access ways that are "within" the speed camera's angle of the main road and access ways where the speed camera does not "beep" because it is located in another street/road...

    At this moment, the only way to beep on the 2 lanes (or 3 or 4 lanes/streets/roads…

  17. Addition of a road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road

    It is suggested to add one more road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road. This type will be used for example when it is a very steep or winding or bumpy road, or a road on the edge of an abyss.
    The time it takes to pass the road in such cases is not the only parameter that counts.
    It is suggested that the "penalty" for passing such a road will be proportional to its length. For example 1 minute for every 100m.

  18. Need options for Unit/Apt/Space/Suite/Building numbers on addresses and RPPs

    I am seeing more and more large apartment/condominium/business complexes with multiple buildings all sharing one street address, and am more frequently getting URs about incorrect addresses because of it. Note, that the designation need to be alphanumeric.

  19. New WME Layer - Submitted Imagery

    Google-provided aerial imagery is very outdated in places, being at least 6 years old in the area I live. Even in more recent areas, there are new developments and intersections which have been built since. I suggest a way for experienced (lvl 3+?) editors to submit personal drone shots or publicly-available renderings of new developments to be added to a new layer on the map editor. This would make editing updated areas significantly more accurate, and provide a way to confirm the new developments before GPS traces are available. It would also make such imagery accessible to all map editors.

  20. Event with more than one other language

    At the moment it is only possible to enter an englisch and optional one other language name for an WME Event.
    Can this limit be increased for optional up to 4 or 5 names (including the englisch language)?

    That would be a gread addition for events that have official names for more than two languages, espiaclly in regions where boarders with more than one country or countrys which have multiple languages.

    As example for boarder regions:
    Belgium/Germany/Netherland
    Austria/Switzerland/Germany
    Austria/Hungary/Slovakia/Czech Republic

    As example for countrys with more than one local language:
    Luxemburg (2 languages + englisch)
    Switzerland (4 languages are spoken)…
