    Also: Waze could sell branded ODB dongles!

    Using waze while walking contributes bad data. The bad usability on your phone is twofold: Battery capacity and gps/3g/gprs chip power usage. If you have a phone with a lower battery capacity and a power hungry radio you can bet using it all drains your battery quickly. Also, wrongly using your battery can drastically decrease it's capacity. This cannot be solved in software, as it is a hardware issue inherent in your phone.

    The fact that your phone gets hot is a obvious sign your battery gets drained fast or your chip is working at peak capacity.

    Most waze users use either a more powerful phone which has a better battery, or use a car dock with charger.

    Waze is always in learn mode, that's the beauty of it. Just drive the route a few times and waze will figure it out. If any of the routes is obstructed or impossible you should edit the map to reflect that.

    Great news! The Waze Beacons Program is in the works and constantly expanding.
    The Waze Beacons Program is the first scalable, affordable solution in the world to power navigation in tunnels. Currently available in select tunnels throughout Pittsburgh, Haifa, Israel, Paris and Rio de Janeiro – seamless navigation is available to Wazers underground simply by turning on Bluetooth functionality.

    Stated: Now I don't know anything about the APIs available to the developers, but accelerometer and gyro capabilities are perfect for tunnels where the Waze application currently has no idea what's going on.

    Solution: For tunnels we just need a new road type "tunnel". Waze would know these probably don't have GPS and just use entry/exit times (on junctions) to calculate avg speed on this segment. With that avg speed it can show your car moving in the tunnel, factoring in your speed while entering it. This way waze can guesstimate your position in the tunnel (It's the way other GPS units do it). Special announcements could be triggered by entering a tunnel-road-segment, as would estimated speed. If you DO run into a trafficjam inside a tunnel, Waze will not notice it by reduced speed between GPS-fixes but by absense of GPS-fixes after enough time has passed to reach the other end.

    Very nice, but do you have a ford for waze to test this on? There are also other bluetooth options available to read data off a car's CAN network

    Tried tapping the green bar? it gives a "stop navigating" option on android. Not very obvious, but found it by accident.

    As deeggo stated, automation is key. Anything that will make waze require less babysitting will add greatly to it's usability. Detecting if your car is on or off (based on a charger/dock charging the phone only when the car is on) would help in that department. Now that the pause option is getting more traction you might also want to vote on this: http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59223-client-how-can-we-improve-waze-on-your-phone-/suggestions/998821-detect-car-on-off-state?ref=title

    Somewhat like http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59223-client-how-can-we-improve-waze-on-your-phone-/suggestions/960891-download-maps?ref=title

    What would work for both is this: A (lot) bigger cache (on SD, user configurable) and the option to preload a country/state/province. If waze has a data connection it can always update pieces of the map on the go.
