  1. Allow a specific path in a junction box to be Private/access only

    If we have one-way access-only restrictions, it's impossible to map this if other routes are available.

    Looking at the situation in the following graphic:
    https://imgur.com/cJEtlk2

    There's no way to get to some of the streets without using the one road that's open to all traffic.

    Having the ability to set a Private Road type to a particular route in a junction box will help resolve this situation.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. Close places temporary just as you can with roads

    As roads can be closed between certain dates it will be great that we can also get this for places. For example when a place is going to close for temporary construction.

  5. Add closed map suggestions count to profile page

    It'd be great if you could track how many map suggestions you have closed. You can already see your closed UR, PUR, and MP counts on your profile page so it would be great if closed map suggestions could also be added.

    Here is a simple mockup I made of what that could look like: https://i.imgur.com/XajOINK.png

  6. 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

  7. Add Driveway Road Type

    I'm Suggesting the Addition of a "Driveway" road type that can be added for long driveways for 1 house. Something can be shown for routing to the address using RPPs but not shown on the map as another road.

  8. Show lanes configuration even if not in editable area

    The lanes tab contains the number of lanes and the lanes associated to each turn, including far turns. This is necessairy for adding lanes but also for ckecking them them.

    If an editor has no permission to edit lanes on a segment, he only sees the total number of lanes and the lane configuration as a whole.
    This also happens when the segment is not inside one's editable area.

    The problem is, this way it's not possible for editors to discuss or check a certain lane configuration together if this is outside of the editable area.

    So please show the…

  9. Make non-residential place addresses indexed and routable

    Editors spend much time adding RPPs to public places because the addresses in the place points are not indexed/routable and the HNs won't connect to the parking lot roads. Plus if routing uses the Google Maps address we spend more time handling URs because the Wazer got routed to the back of the location rather than the front door. This is an absurd waste of time, and adds untold complexity and clutter to the map. Please expand the place addresses to allow for suite numbers or other identifiable info where businesses share the same basic as GM already does, and…

  10. Road details

    As we all know, WME is changing its appearance and because of that, many of us complained about the unneeded "empty space" that is everywhere on WME.

    I know that some extra work is being done by staff, in order to please us all the best way possible :) , but something more can be done.

    One suggestion is to use symbols, instead of text, for what I call "road details": Unpaved; Tunnel; Headlights; Next to BUS lane; Beacons.

    This would allow saving some more space and the icons are more or less self-explanatory, being possible to add a text/explanation…

  11. Include setting details in user reports

    Part of the challenge in handling reports is getting details from the reporting user. The following information should be available to editors to better handle reports with less need to request information from the Wazer:
    Avoid toll roads
    Avoid difficult intersections
    Avoid freeways
    Unpaved roads setting
    Passes added
    Vehicle type

    Basically anything that affects the route suggested by Waze.
    HOV route selected

  12. Reorder advanced WME settings

    When Compact Mode was added, it was placed at the top of the advanced settings. The top settings should be those most likely to be used often. Compact Mode should go toward the bottom with the other settings less likely to be changed.

    Red marks on the image are those items I think won't be changed often. https://imgur.com/wvHg0HY

    Personal note - I change from drawing as one segments to two way segments often based on the roads I'm adding.

  13. Managed area's name - Nombre del área administrada

    Edit the name of the managed areas in the WME.
    You should be able to edit the name name of the managed areas in the WME. It would be faster to choose the area.

    Editar el nombre de las áreas gestionadas en el WME.
    Debería poder editar el nombre de las áreas gestionadas en el WME. Sería más rápido elegir el área.

  14. 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.

  15. Remove screen size change

    https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=2293182#p2293182

    The WME screen size was changed, causing you to have to scroll up/down to see the full WME screen.

  16. 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.

  17. Prompt user to save Lane changes if deselecting segment

    After editing Lanes, it's far too easy to lose the changes by accidentally deselecting the selected segment you are editing if you don't apply the changes beforehand.

    This suggestion is to recognise that changes have been made in Lanes (or road width), and prompt the user to apply or cancel the changes if they deselect the segment they are editing.

  18. add RTC details to segment history in WME

    Currently in WME segment history we can see that a closure was added and when it was added, but It doesn't contain any details about the duration of the closure itself. If a closure is manually deleted by an editor I believe that also shows up in the history, but when a closure expires naturally that is not captured.

    It would be very useful if there was data about the actual closure itself. I'd like to at the very least be able to see when the RTC was scheduled to begin and end. This would help when there are URs…

  20. 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…
