If possible to set limitations on à street.
Ex. Max weight, Max height. Even open times. Ex 06-23 (cities) or april-october ( closed during winter)

And then you should be able to set your vehicle properties in My Waze.
Maybe Even be able to have more then one wehicle stored. Ex you drive à truck daytime and your car otherwise.

Just ideas to improve The already most innovative and smartest GPS there is. :)


I agree, think many commercial drivers are using this app already and these features would be great. I drive a CMV in and out of NYC and it always wants to put me on the Parkways.

This was briefly mentioned at the Waze Meet Up in Palo Alto. Per Waze, it's not a consideration at this point.

Maybe try CoPilot Truck North America.

Additional Bonus:
If setting vehicle type, it should be possible to calculate different speeds.
In Sweden The trucks speed is limited to 80 km/h meaning that trucks have a lower average speed on certain roads.

Still see this as a great option. To get warnings if My vehicle is to high to pass under low bridges of to heavy to pass over.

Still think this is The best GPS app. :)

Bridge heights and weight restrictions are WAY too complex and tedious to maintain, but one simple feature that would help commercial drivers quite a bit might be "avoid Parkways".
