  1. Allow roadshields with more than 5 characters

    Hi,
    Would it be possible to increase the number of allowed characters for the roadshields.
    In Luxembourg, for example we have roads like the "CR189A" which sadly doesn't fit into the inbox.

    Best Regards
    The_Luxemburger L3 for Luxembourg

  2. Correction needed for Savannah historic district

    From 16 into Savannah, GA. WAZE dictated a right turn on Abercorn but said "Abersham" so I missed the turn. That area is full of one-way streets and Abercorn would have "circled the block" to get me to Lincoln Street.

  3. 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.

  4. Notification in WME for tile build delay

    If there is a delay in the tile build or the map is rolled back for some reason, please show a notification in the WME.

  5. Left panel configurability

    Problem for me and apparently for many other people too is that some left panel items I frequently need are on the bottom part and need to scroll to reach those while others I very rarely need are visible all the time. Solution: Make left panel configurable in a way that you could change the order sections appear in it.

    For example I would like to see History, Created by and Last edited by fields higher and would drop height and lock levels to the bottom of the list, it would result in much better usability for me.

  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 :

  8. Select left hand drive or right hand drive vehicle

    My car is a left hand drive vehicle however while using the app on an android headunit the directions are on the left side of the screen while the map is on the right hand side of the screen which is very hard to see. I suggest an option if your car is a left hand drive vehicle to swap these two and revert back if it is a right hand drive vehicle.

  9. 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.

  10. Disable automatic kinetic / inertial panning of the map

    With decent search functions and new zoom levels, I feel that the kinetic panning of the map behavior is not necessary. I sometimes find it to be a nuisance since I tend to pan the map past my intended point sometimes. Currently, I use a script to make the map static and find this behavior much better to direct.

  11. External Providers Search Displays Too Little Information

    The + Add linked Google place functionality on venues is incredibly difficult to use. When you search, the Waze-prioritized white space leaves almost no room for the search results to actually contain usable data. As it is now, I often have to guess as to which place it might be and often have to repeat the process making editing places very inefficient. Please expand the information displayed here so that this functionality is actually useful to finding and linking Google places. The whole name of a place should appear along with a complete address.

  13. Add ability to mark Map Comments as critical with increased visibility

    Please add a way to mark some Map Comment (MC) points as "critical" (as opposed to "informational"), with increased visibility. Instead of a small white dot, for example, you could display a slightly larger black-and-white or red-and-white bullseye. You could perhaps even add (gentle!) animation, such as gradual pulsing.

    Why do I suggest this? Several times now, I have encountered oversights by editors who seemed to have missed important information in a nearby MC Point. These well-intentioned but uninformed edits degraded the driver experience until they were discovered and repaired. I've asked around and have come to three conclusions:

  14. Disable segment geometry snapping

    We see some changes to geometry handles in WME, so here is another suggestion to improve it even more.

    Why do we still have the road snapping behavior if two roads can't intersect together? This behavior is annoying when you try to edit an interchange with multiple intersecting segments, but the editor's snapping concept interferes with you.

  15. Correct the spelling of Marina del Rey, CA

    Correct the spelling of Marina del Rey (California) in association with the 90 freeway. It is incorrectly spelled as Marina del Ray currently. It should be Marina del Rey.

  16. Integrate camper vans into parking spaces

    I would like to have the possibility to integrate mobile homes into parking spaces. But also to offer the possibility when parking spaces are only allowed for motorhomes.

  17. Improve error message for incorrect password

    Whenever one tries to login into the editor (or any other site) and the password is incorrect, the error message is: "Something went wrong. Try again". It is suggested to add: "Check the Caps Lock and the Keyboard language setting". An even better idea is not to allow insertion of non-English letters, and warn the user while typing the password, and warn for all capital letters when the user clicks on Log in.

  18. Flag UR reports

    I would like the feature to be able to flag a UR report. This way, volunteers can reply to a UR normally. If the UR is about something that the volunteer cannot fix, allow them to have an option to flag the report with a "level needed" option, so the volunteer can put in which level volunteer is needed to fix the UR.

    (I am aware that we have the unlock requests forums, but possibly add the flagged reports to the level that the volunteer requested's feed.

  19. minimize the URs window

    in the URs window we have "x" button but we dont have minimize button "-", Some times it block viewing the Waze provided route & User drive (GPS trace) to study it. So if we have the minimize button who need to minimize it he can.

  20. Copy and Paste Turn Instructions from one turn to another

    Please allow us to Copy into the clipboard (or similar function) all Turn Instructions from one turn, and Paste them into another turn.

    Quite often, I'm having to replicate the same instructions for different turns at the same junction for those coming from different directions, but turning into the same road. It would be a big timesaver if we could copy TIs into other turns without having to repeat the same steps.

    Thanks for supporting this suggestion! We've added it to the WME team's backlog, and hope to get to it in the near future. We will follow up here when we have an update, or need more info from the community.
