We plan to work on simulating navigation while driving in a tunnel in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

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.

Thanks for your feedback. At this time, this doesn't fit on our roadmap, but we'll keep it in mind for future product planning.
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! :-) )
