If you do this, app will be on par with any other paid app on the market.

For now you can save the position and address/destination but it is not as straight-forward as it should be. Plus you cannot manipulate your own POI.

I would also like to be able to select only the notifications on the route. This is huge.

In settings you should be able to select toll/free hwy (allow/avoid hwy is not good enough).

All the above features are strictly related to navigation, any other feature (like gas prices, etc) are side features which can be implemented later (maybe through plug-ins).

You can do this now.

I'd like to be able to pick a destination off a map, rather than entering the address, and also to add a favourite place with a 'where i am now' button. Also displaying the local speed limit would be really useful!

Otherwise, spectacular app! I love it! Good work!

You can always choose one of the alternative routes and look at the nav list before you start driving. Then if you don't like the way it is taking you pick another alternative route or re-set your route again.

Of course Waze is subject to re-route you when you are on-course to a faster route if/when traffic conditions change (assuming the traffic routing/re-routing is working as it should).

Obviously this is not very practical if you are trying to search for alternative routes when driving.

Waze's current features do kind of dance around that subject. It shows a graphical preview when you request alternate routes, and it gives you the nav list of the currently selected route, but not a nav list for the alternate/proposed route.

The down side of that would be a Police Officer could clear them when they are still there.

You can report not there, if you are travelling the same direction. Otherwise, you can only make comments.

People have already suspect that police are remove reports about themselves, so if it was allowed for anything anywhere, it could really be abused.

I would like to be able to edit other peoples notifications. Sometimes people post that there are police officers or accidents but when I drive though they are cleared. It would be nice to delete them.

Also it would be nice to map out your own routes.

This is from a 3.x version point of view, but menu->settings->advanced->show on map

Traffic layer (color coded) = the automated reports that show current speed of segment.
Traffic jams = The reports from other wazers (manual, or prompted "are you in traffic")

Your 3rd option might be doable, but they have to make the names actually correct first :)
Their is a current issue with getting the wrong info attached to a wazer icon.

If they implement this, definitely would need to be an option, because if you are in a high wazer density area, you will have a hard time seeing the road without the labels. :)
