  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

  6. 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.

  7. Remove screen size change

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Fix bug when multiple URs are submitted from the exact same location.

    When multiple URs are submitted at the exact same location only the last one can be opened. When you try to open the others the display hangs and a hard refresh must be used.

  14. Disable segment geometry changes in House Number mode

    When in the "Edit House Numbers" mode, the Editor allows changes to segment geometry, but then generates an error when saving the changes. It is very easy to unknowingly edit segment geometry when trying to move a house number stop point. When this occurs, any HNs edited after that geometry change need reverted.

    Please disable segment geometry changes when in HN mode.

  15. Drivable Areas

    The current solution for parking lots and gas stations is not particularly user friendly. A user driving within these areas is directed to follow parking lot road segments which can be very complex and still may not represent the paths that drivers actually follow.
    A means to give a user a general instruction to proceed to a particular exit to get going on their route could result in a better user experience, especially in the case of of multi-level parking structures where a user may drive in circles repeatedly as they proceed to the exit level.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
