  1. Speed trap reporting

    Our speed traps are in vehicles and not a fixed spot. It would be nice to be able to report the speed trap in app vs going in WME

  2. Ajouter un outil de signalement d'animaux perdus

    Bonjour, je me permets de vous contacter pour vous soumettre une idée qui pourrait rendre votre application encore plus attractive et qui pourrait rendre service à un grand nombre de personnes...

    Étant actuellement à la recherche du petit chien de ma sœur qui à fugué, j'utilise Waze pour vérifier les signalements d'animaux morts sur les routes (en espérant ne pas le retrouver de cette manière).

    L'idée est qu'il serait vraiment très pratique de développer une option permettant de signaler des animaux errants... Encore plus pratique, un service permettant de signaler aux conducteurs qu'un animal est recherché dans une zone précise…

  3. Allow assigning house numbers from the map while there.

    I go a lot of places and the house numbers in some areas are either nonexistent or just plain wrong. It would be nice to edit the map while on the street with the house numbers.

  4. Submit corrections

    Is there a way to submit corrections? Waze has my address wrong. It sends people to a nearby street. This is a big problem now as I am having groceries delivered during the pandemic. Thanks for any assistance.

  6. Landmark and POI's categories

    In WME, while editing the map, it would be useful to have the possibility to activate/deactivate categories of Landmarks/POI’s – something similar to Map Layers: I do not need to have all the categories visible and somehow polluting the map with Landmarks/POI’s like Park, Beach, River, etc.

    So, the idea is to have the possibility to select those categories I want to see and deactivate those less interesting for the day-to-day editing.

    Thanks.

  7. Please add traffic on map when not navigating so that we can see traffic like Google maps does.

    Please add traffic onto map when not navigating so that we can see traffic congestion like Google maps does. I tend to just open Waze for traffic issues and police and hazards when driving to work everyday because I don’t need to navigate to work normally.

  8. Setting "Repeat every year" on an existing restriction

    Now that we have the "Repeat every year" checkbox for restrictions, it'd be useful if we could tick this for existing restrictions to turn them into repeating ones, without the need to then also edit the start/end dates to avoid the "Start date can not be in the past" error.

    e.g. a segment has an existing restriction set for 5th September 2019 to 20th October 2019, and the restriction is one that ought to be set as recurring.

    The preferred workflow would be for the editor to simply tick the "Repeat every year" checkbox and save, without any other changes…

  9. Add a road closure once at destination

    It would be really helpful to add a road closure on the map once you're at your destination. Often you are driving and can't do this, especially if you can't drive near the closure

  10. Retorno do recurso Reportar radar

    Solicito o retorno do recurso “Reportar radar” todo dia as autoridades instalam novos radares no Brasil todo e nos usuários somos surpreendidos com a multa em casa. Não acho justo uma ferramenta tão rica ser desprezada pelos seus editores.
    A todo momento um susto!!!!

    Sugiro a volta do recurso imediatamente.

  11. Consolidate the two WME suggestion boxes

    Please consolidate the two Uservoice-based WME suggestion boxes. There has been a "Waze Map Editor" subcategory of the "Waze Suggestion Box" for at least a few years, and due to default links and navigation that is still an easier suggestion box to find than this one. Or, is there a reason to have two different suggestion boxes for WME?

  12. Gas station

    One of Swedens largest chain of gas stations is not to be found in Waze. In Eniro's map app it is though. Can you please add Ingo gas station in Waze so I don't have to change to Eniro.

  13. Truck restrictions

    I know that in the past this option has been recommended and the staff has rejected it, but I want to approach this question of trucks from another perspective.
    Why not create a restriction for trucks in the permalinks as currently exists for taxis, motorcycles, electric cars etc ... and that in the application for users in the vehicle category, the option "truck" is also created. We as editors mark the permalinks with restrictions for these vehicles and the user who chooses this vehicle option in the application will have a more accurate navigation.

  14. Post exact number of exit to take

    When there are multiple exits on a single road, presently you show only what the sign states ( ie: exit 23 ABC ). If I am to take exit 23 B it should state that at the beginnig not when I'm on top of it.

  15. Metric system on new connections

    Hi,
    Can you add that the metric system is automatically set up according to the country to which we are connected?
    Because there are a lot of L1 in France who change the speed limits of entire districts / cities and put 50 mph ... instead of 50 km/h ... (a difference of 30 km/h ...)

    Take care and thanks for all :)

  16. WME frontend should show backend errors

    Hi,
    when saving, if the backend fails, it returns a message. But often they are not localized, and in that case we get a generic
    "Please try again later" which is useless because in most case the problem will not solve and the only solution is to cancel all edits.
    Here is a list of messages that are not localized and need to be displayed (maybe not exactly in the same form, but at least do not tell the user to try again if it is impossible that it works.

  17. RTC : ability to add them on current tiles

    Hi,
    the real time closure have a problem :

    We put them in WME and WME validates them according to their current state in database. But they apply on livemap.

    Imagine I have a street that is A->B. Then they decide to reverse it. So it is now saved B->A.

    In WME I have B->A
    In livemap I still have A->B until tiles update.

    To avoid routing people A->B, it would be nice to add a closure, but WME refuse since it thinks the road is in opposite direction.

    It would be nice if WME could accept it by really…

  18. Traffic jam voice alerts

    Add voice alerts along route for traffic jams up ahead. If you are driving you can not see them until it is too late. Right now, it is only visible on map with no voice alerts.

  19. Route by best value rather than fastest route

    Waze has, on multiple occasions, suggested long detours that are expected to only be a few minutes faster. When you consider the fuel-costs, cost to operate, etc. this is equivalent to paying a toll to save a few minutes.

    If a wazer could specify the value of their time and the cost of operating their vehicle then the route planning could find the route with the lowest cost (cost being value of one minute X duration of drive plus operating cost X length of drive).

    Since many wazers might not understand how to determine the correct value for their time…

  20. Replace ':' and '>' by a direction field

    Hi guys,

    The idea would be to replace the ':' or '>' instructions present on segments by a direction field that
    would not display on the segment name but would allow to construct the guidance instructions.

    This would allow to properly manage the direction signs in the city without having this kind a street : "Street Chip: Dale area" and easily managed the directions in roundabouts, etc.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Hey!
    Thank you for this suggestion.

    We are currently working on a road shields feature for the WME, and we believe this suggestion will be addressed as part of this development.

    We will update accordingly.
