Absolutely not. I already have a free app I can use to help find parking. No reason for Waze to develop more features that are already covered elsewhere.

You can tap and hold to save any location. You can already report a map issue.

There are a number of threads already on time-of-day restrictions. In short, they are not possible....at least, not yet. I don't know if that functionality is planned.

The issue is not the existence if other apps that do that, but integration into waze.

That is the crux of why you and I disagree here. I don't want other features integrated into Waze that can be handled by other applications. When I set out, I always have my parking app lined up and waiting. By the time I am looking for a parking space, I'm not relying on Waze to guide me to my destination.

Sometimes, it's very handy to have the house or building number display on the screen so you can location the correct residence/business.



Seconded. I use Waze when I'm going somewhere unfamiliar, and I have to write or note the address somewhere else and then refer to it just as I'm nearing my destination. Very distracting.

I personally hate this idea.
Tap and hold with your finger covering any side of 2 or 3 city blocks is about to as effective as trying to shoot a fly at 100m while just loosely aiming down the barrel of the gun, especially since you cannot move the pin that's placed.
Adding a function to use current coords at the press of a button is definitely not rocket science and is basic functionality of any other GPS.


I like being able to tap and hold on a spot to create a favorite, but I would REALLY like to be able to drag the resulting pin around a bit to adjust it, especially after having already saved the fave.

Quite often, when I'm arriving at my frequent destinations, Waze doesn't think I'm there yet. I like to set favorites at spots about a half a block closer than my actual destination, so if I grab a parking spot before I get there, I don't have to tell Waze to "stop nav". Being able to adjust pin location for an existing favorite would be really helpful in this regard.

With my old “NAV” once I arrived at the location it would ask me if this was the correct location. Wouldn’t you Waze developers like to know if your product is working and when it’s not so you can improve it?
Today I asked it to take me to a location. When I “arrived” it not only wasn’t there but I had to drive 4 miles just to turn around. (and sit in traffic, AND wait for lights, AND DRIVE 4 MILES BACK!!)

I would like to be able to designate my current location as a favorite without entering an address.

Speed limits...a lot of in town "traffic jams" could be suppressed if waze knew that 30mph was the speed limit and it not display that there is heavy traffic going 27mph

Multi stop set ups, instead of just a single in route stop.

Once you have a significant number of Wazers in town, that will happen automatically. If the traffic is flowing at 27 and showing a jam, it's because there's not enough speed data yet.

That sort of thing stopped in my area once there was about 50 Wazers showing during rush hour every day.


Via my iPhone 3GS.

Thx for the info
