  1. ability to amend speed limits

    I'd be interested to find out how I can advise of a change in speed limit please. Our village (Newington, Sittingbourne, Kent) has recently introduced a 20mph limit across the village, but it's still showing on the app as 30mph.

  2. "Sharp" Turn Instruction

    Create a "sharp" turn instruction. Similar to "keep" instructions being an angle <44 degrees, a sharp turn instruction could be one greater than 135 degrees but less than 170 (which would be u-turn). Other apps already have this instruction and it would greatly complement lane guidance visuals that use the sharp left/right turn symbol. Alternatively, it could be provided only as a TIO for use only where the community finds appropriate.

  3. Displaying of node closures on planned closures

    Node closures are great, but they can cause confusion as well. If there are road works with several phases you cannot see if the node closure is on the active closure or on the planned closure.

    Therefore I suggest to make node closures greyed out on planned closures, as you now have with the symbol for segment closures as well. Additionally or alternatively, active node closures can be made red/white instead of black/white.

  4. Mark for "No Trucks Allowed"

    In Buckeye, Arizona there is a law prohibiting semi traffic in residential areas. With interstate construction it's creating backups and people are looking for routes around it. It's all well and good till a semi tries to drive through our golf community on a road that the city extended a couple of years ago to give residents easier access to Verrado Way. The semi's hit the reflectors marking the cart path crossings. They hit the curbs that weren't designed for truck dimensions. They also come dangerously close to children waiting on the sidewalk for their school busses. The street I'm…

  5. Speed cam edits should initiate tile update

    Currently, speed limit edits depend on nearby map edits to be included in the tile update process. This seems to be an old limitation.

    It should be possible to add or edit speed cams without requiring additional edits.

  6. To automatically remove duplicates from "external providers"

    If you have have duplicates in the "external providers" of a POI, WME should automatically clean it. See example for this one which has twice the same Google Maps place :

  7. Multiple entry points

    Waze should re-enable its multiple entry points feature (eg one side of building or another).

    Instead of using the first entry point, Waze users should be directed to the one that’s marked as the main point in the editor.

  8. Automatic UR handling

    An update request (UR) without any text can be automatically handled:
    1. There will be an automatic system response to the UR that will invite the user to add more details to his request in the WME (include a link) or in the forum (include a link to the local community forum). The user will get an e-mail as fr any other manual response.

    1. Every such UR that has no more responses (other than the automatic one) will be closed as "not identified" after 7 days.

    That automatic handling will save a lot of time wasted by area managers. A…

  9. Project Zone for Large/Difficult Projects

    Sometimes when working on large projects, it is difficult to get the timing with tile updates to make a major project (or even smaller projects) go live at the correct time. Often this is done with adding segment restrictions to new segments, waiting for a TU, then applying an RTC and removing the restriction, so that when it goes live, just the RTC has to be removed. However, this usually only works when what is added is totally new and doesn't require reuse or reconfiguring of previous segments. It is also very difficult during reconfigurations when the project all of…

  10. Add postal codes/ZIP codes to Waze address editor

    When a Waze app user searches for an address added using the Waze Map Editor, it does not show the postal code. But with Google addresses, the postal code is shown. Please add postal codes to the WME.

  11. Enable automatic night mode for tunnel segments

    It would be a nice addition to Waze to get automatic night mode for tunnel segments.

    We're already adding the necessary information for this feature when creating tunnel segments.

  12. Highlight Lane Guidance Icons on hover

    Currently in Lane Guidance there are the icons up the top showing the composition. It would be great if when hovering over an item it would fade out the icons that wouldn't be shown and highlight the ones that would. You're already highlighting the path on hover so it could be associated in that! I think this would be especially helpful for FL2

  14. Bring back the zoom bar

    With all of the new zoom levels I'm respectfully begging for the return of the zoom bar in order to know what zoom level you are at. Since many map objects only display below a certain zoom level, in vanilla WME, you must guess whether you'll be able to see what you need. Also, the zoom bar allowed for single click zooming, rather than using the scroll wheel or multiple clicks.

  15. Real-Time Speed limit

    In relation with the time based speed limits, it would be interesting to have the possibility to change speed limits in real time.
    In some european countries for example they limit the speed limit on all the highways in a country to 90kph due to too high Co2 levels.

    Having this option would set waze apart from other navigation apps.

  16. Separate Map Editor App

    I am suggesting an app that allows editors on the move to have a way to handle URs and PURs while away from the computer more effectively. This could also allow PLs to be opened and segment(s) involved to be edited easier from the mobile device.

    URs could have notifications and work like a chat room that other editors can join.

    PURs could have notifications with the ability to approve if info can be confirmed while mobile.

    PLs could open with options to change the lock level and see segment info upon scrolling down.

  17. Change forum request format when using share link in WME

    Even though my previous post says this was implemented, not a single thing has been. https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-map-editor-suggestions/suggestions/43000929-change-formatting-of-forum-sharing-options

    When an editor uses the forum sharing options, which is great, because of the order of the data on the request, valuable information is being overlooked.

    For example, the current Unlock Request automatically fills in the following information:
    Hi Editors,

    I would like to be able to edit the following segment(s).
    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

  18. GPS announces what state or county you're in

    It will be nice if the GPS would announce the state, county and city you entered in because on the road the signs might be knocked down or you just might not see them while driving especially on the highway or minor roads I really think this needs to be a thing it'll be nice if it will announce what city You just entered in.

  20. Remove unpaived attribute from Off-road / Not maintained segments

    An Off-road / Not maintained segment is unpaived by definition and should not have the unpaived attribute. We encountered navigation problems to destinations on such segments because of this attribute, so in Israel we don't allow to set this attribute. New editors are not aware of this problem, and think that they should set it to unpaived, and we have to explain it to them.
    Please remove this attribute in this type of segments in the WME, and it will save a lot of effort.
