  1. Sub-cities

    The goal is to have a mechanism for attaching localities or hamlets to a city.
    The French wiki presents a number of situations (https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/France/Routes_Nommage).
    There is also the management of districts or neighborhoods of large cities that could also benefit from this feature.

  3. Close a place for a fixed period

    Sometimes I receive UR for places closed for works (construction site, temporary closure).
    It would be nice for editor to be able to close a place for a fixed period, as you can close a road.

    I had the case on 2 gas stations under construction closed for several months. A "temporarily closed" button or closing dates with automatic reopening would be great!

  4. Reorder custom turn instruction elements

    When editing custom turn instructions, if an element (shield or free text) should be inserted before existing elements, then the existing elements must be deleted. There is no way to create new elements in front of existing elements.

    Please add the ability to reorder elements. This way we could create new elements and then move them to the front if needed. This would save many clicks and retyping.

  5. Clear direction cache when WME edits are made

    Often when WME edits are made affecting routing to an address, the Wazer still gets the same incorrect routing because the old data is cached. Then editors get another UR because the Wazer thinks the changes were never made, and we have to explain how to clear the incorrect data from the cache. That can be a problem for those who are technologically-challenged. Not to mention time-consuming for editors who have to walk them through it, sometimes exchanging multiple messages with the Wazer. Can Wazedev find a way to automatically clear incorrect data from the cache when edits have been…

  6. Show Entry Point Name changes in POI history and PUR

    I noticed that Changes to the name of Entry Points of places won't show up in the POI history, it simply says "Updated Entry Points".

    This also affects PURs, since you don't know what the Wazer/Editor is suggesting until you accept it.
    I reckon those requests mostly get declined since there's no visible change.

    My suggestion is to add those name changes to the history and PURs.

  7. Add the ford option

    Waze should add another option for ford, along with the existing ones: "Unpaved", "Tunnel", etc.

    In the Waze Map Editor, the editor could choose this option for the entire length of the road that passes through a body of water.

  8. We must be able to add waypoints on itineraries

    When making an itinerary, we should have the choice of waypoints as in other GPS systems.

  9. Control point / guard house on road

    I would like to recommend Waze add a map editing / issue feature for a road control checkpoint. A checkpoint is a common element of various roads around the world and would be important for Waze to add the ability to indicate it.

  10. Allow 3 choices for PURs that report closed places. 1) Ignore; 2) edit place 3) delete place

    Currently we can only ignore a PUR that reports a place closed or delete the closed place. We have no other choices available. Often, we need to make changes in operating hours or make other changes but NOT delete the place. If we ignore the PUR, it counts against the reporter. We need a third choice that gives the reporter credit for the report but allows us to keep the place and make appropriate changes to it.

  11. Fix the lane width and lane guidance interface

    You have "Number of lanes" listed twice for two different things. 1) the number of lanes at the start of the segment (incoming used for lane width) and 2) number of lanes (outgoing used for lane guidance arrows).

    Recommend having the lane width changed to "Incoming number of lanes" and lane guidance changed to "outgoing number of lanes"

    Yes after you get used to the current configuration it can be figured out but it is never a good practice to have two different items with the same label on a single interface.

    Also the Displayed lane guidance arrows are just…

  12. Not a helpful shortcut

    Funneling drivers onto Dinnick Crescent (Toronto) at rush hour instead of continuing to the light at Mt. Pleasant and Lawrence actually creates a worse, or equally bad lineup, as there is no ability to turn left (west) onto Lawrence. The traffic on Lawrence is solid for several blocks and drivers don't make room for those turning left, which then creates a lineup of cars on Dinnick with angry drivers who want to turn right. It would save time to simply stay on Mt. Pleasant and wait for the light.

  13. Particular and recurring restrictions

    Sometimes I faced uncommon recurring restrictions to be applied on a segment, for example:
    - every first sunday of every month;
    - every third thursday of even months;
    - every last saturday of every month.

    There is NO WAY to do it automatically in WME, because the editor is unable to know which is the first occurrence of sunday every month and so on, meaning I have to edit those restrictions manually, and I will for sure forget about them.

    Developing a built-in tool for these particular cases could be globally very useful.

  14. Modify the display when showing history of Turn Guidance

    When checking the history of changes to turn guidance, the side panel is too narrow to display the Turn Guidance image (both before and after images)
    The box for displaying the arrow takes up half the width (although the proportions are consistent with how its displayed) we don't need that much space used when checking the history.

    I am not sure what other changes might be possible, maybe also providing the text fields as text (it would allow us to see if the change was with information in the text field.

  15. Dismiss auto completion of segment name in WME

    When providing segment names, sometimes the auto completion overrides correct street names with the already provided wrong title. I found no other way of overriding it except deleting the wrong name from all segments that use it and saving them without a name. Afterwards it's possible to add the name. This is especially problematic when one just needs to adjust something from lower to upper case and the other way round.

    In my opinion there should be an option like a cross at the end of the auto completion menu that closes it and offers the ability to provide a…

  16. Close the turns

    Now we can only close the segments, but it would be really useful to be able to close only the turns.
    In many cases, for example, when there are road works at an intersection or roundabout, you can turn in one direction but not in another.
    In these cases for the moment, we can not do anything, at most we can insert a restriction on the turns but obviously with all the limitations of the case.
    They are not in real time and are not visible on the map.
    The ability to close nodes recently arrived on the WME does…

  17. New category inherent to places

    I would suggest the creation of a specific category for the departure and arrival stations of the cable cars, cable cars, chairlifts and ski lifts etc etc.
    Looking forward to a positive response.

  19. Add Names of Lakes and Rivers to the display in the APP

    In some areas bodies of water are significant landmarks that aid in navigation. The names of major bodies of water are shown in the Live Map already. I assume the names shown in the LM are coming from the Water Layer. Enabling these names to be displayed would be a great addition to the App.

  20. Apply alternative name to all selected segments of the street

    Today, if an alternative name is only assigned to some segments of a street, and you select also segments of the street without the alternative name, there is no indication of such status and no way to apply the alternative name to all segments. Please add such indication and action.
