    Another vote here, I was about to make a similar suggestion...

    I too mainly use routes I know very well like the daily commute hence you don't have voice directions turned on. They soon get annoying otherwise, especially if you have a passenger.

    When you start Waze up, it finds your route home/work and shows a little display of any traffic on your route, but this is not a map. So if Waze HAS re-routed you already away from traffic on your normal route and hence now shows no traffic on your new route, you don't realise this, you're not made aware it's not the normal route.

    So you think great, no traffic on the way home and off you go. Without the voice prompts you're not aware Waze is trying to get you to turn off so you end up hitting traffic!

    Once when I was caught out by this, after I passed the last junction where I could turn off to avoid the traffic jam, Waze then had to reroute me down the normal route and into the traffic. Only then did a voice announcement warn me of traffic ahead. Of course this happened just a few hundred yards past the last junction so I was not happy! If only it could say "turn off to avoid traffic on normal route"!!!

    Waze pops up a message to tell me my brother (a Facebook friend) is now driving... great!... or would be if I could see him!

    I mean, why tell me he's driving if you won't let me see where he is? What's the point in telling me? There's no button to simply jump to him on the map and if I manually scroll between his place of work and his home (it's normally on his drive home that Waze tells me he is driving) then I can't find him either (but I can see other Wazers). So again, what's the point unless you're going to actually let me see him on the map?

    Agree. At the moment you might come accross a hazard such as an accident with a traffic queue. You try to report the hazard but no, you have no phone signal so Waze won't let you record it, telling you to try again later (when you do have a signal).

    But of course, you might have to drive a few miles further before you get a signal and there's no point reporting a hazard that's miles out of position. You might not even be on the same road any more.

    Waze needs to cache any hazard reports in an offline mode, then once you have a data signal back, upload the report, (hence the report will be in the correct location of the hazard).
