  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 :)

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  14. report from home/office

    I don't always have time or ability to safely report an issue while driving. While it wouldn't be as fresh, a report of such things as standing water, downed branches, black ice,..etc would/could still be relevant and maybe save some hassle or even a life and heartache. I'd like to be able get to the office, open Waze and mark a map where a hazard is...with a time stamp so that users would know how fresh it is...and it could be verified by another user before becomoing "hot".

  16. Chuva

    Gostaria de fazer uma sugestão. vamos lá, caso adotem. O waze poderia dizer se o caminho escolhido está chovendo ou não. Isso seria útil para condutores de moto, mas não só. Outra sugestão seria uma opção para bloquear a tela contra toques acidentais quando aberto. Quando chove os pingos caem na tela e atrapalham e chegam a fechar o waze.

  20. Truck mode, Modo para camiones

    Español: Agreguen modo para camiones, ya que al no señalar donde hay tuneles o su altura pueden ocurrir accidentes y no quiero que eso suceda.

    English: Add mode for trucks, since by not indicating where there are tunnels or their height accidents can occur and I do not want that to happen.

    Portugués: Modo add para caminhões, pois ao não indicar onde existem túneis ou sua altura podem ocorrer acidentes e eu não quero que isso aconteça.
