4.0 is out (on iOS for a few months, apparently released for Android today however no update available on my phone), still no "tunnel mode"? This pretty important navigation feature was first requested back in 2010... I'm starting to loose my faith in Waze, having missed several exits in Stockholm's tunnels (first time there driving my own car) a few weeks back.
Please, Waze, replace your "tunnel panic mode" with a simple, decent "tunnel mode" where the app just stays on route/road with last known speed until gps signals are available again. How hard can it be? (I really don't know! :-) )
Guess it will come with the new 3.0 interface

I am absolutely for having the current speed limit visible.
I sometimes use Sygic on my Android phone, where the speed limit "sign" floats above the map in, to me at least, a non-obstructive way. Take a look:
When there's an exclamation mark next to the speed limit, it means you are driving too fast.
But of course, no use implementing this if the speed limit is unknown, so it would have to be entered in cartouche plus there should be an easy way to report correct speed limit/speed limit change from the client.

I'm in as well, but my suggestion is to don't bother trying to use compass, gyro, accellerometer etc. just instruct the Waze client to stay on the current road with the last known speed (or even a 5% reduction as traffic often slows down just a tad in tunnels), in a sort of "demonstration mode".
Don't bother changing parts of existing roads to "tunnels" either, just let Waze enter "low/no GPS mode" whenever GPS signals disappear - it might happen in city streets surrounded by tall buildings, in dense forrests, in deep valleys, not only in tunnels.
