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.


The issue is not the existence if other apps that do that, but integration into waze. I don't want to have to switch apps, control the other app while driving etc. esp in the city the parking lot situation is unknown to me in many areas, so having to stop, bring up the other app at my destination, digest the output and then use that app's map ( or even to feed the results into waze one by one) would be a pain.esp if one lot offered us full and I have to do the same again...

I haven't read through all 10 pages of suggestions so far to see if anyone else suggested this but I would like to be able to use the voice commands while driving to search for alternate destinations along my route. What I mean by this is I would begin my route from point A to point B. Along the way I get hungry or need some gas, so I would use a voice command.... "find restaurants"... "find gas stations". This would result in a simple at a glance list (in the case of gas stations sorted by price or distance depending on preference). Next voice command would be "Navigate to 1"... or 2, 3 or which ever list item you want to go to. Waze then re-routes you to your new destination.... point C. After you are done at C you simply tell Waze to resume previous navigation and it then routes you back to point B from where you are.

First of all...thank you for this extremely useful apps. What a great idea!!

1. Find parking near by (with full/not full status will be nice...but how?)
2. Best gas price/Best food along the way.
3. Check major events at destination or along the way that may impact traffic.
4. Preplan trip with preset preferred ETA. Also notify (email) if anything (traffic jam, events, weather) that may impact ETA.
5. Store traffic history on server, and use 5 days traffic pattern (or 3 weekends for Sat/Sun...since weekend traffic may be different than workday traffic) to calculate route/time


Keep up your good work!!

Cheers.....Som

For the underlined part only, you do get a popup alert, but no email notification when ETA is affected by new traffic conditions. It would be a nice feature to enable 'autosend of ETA change if >x minutes"


Thank you for your prompt answer and sorry I didn't make it clear. I mean an email alert even before I take off so that I know I may need to depart earlier than schedule to cope with the traffic. :-)

Cheers.....Som

A couple ideas:

- a simple compass on the map screen showing north. This would greatly enhance situational awareness.
- multi-point routing.
- put the street number back on the screen when approaching your destination. It was there prior to version 3 and is sorely missed!

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).

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!

Feature Request: Car stopped on the road

Postby Spazinbc » Sun Dec 23, 2012 2:17 am

This is missing. Do all cars stop or move to the shoulder? Of course not. :|

Some ideas, hope to be clear:
1. To add some landmark types like residential building.
2. Create an "Status" on road already in the map in order to show temporal closing (construction).
3. In iPad app, because of the size of screen, include shortcut bottoms to make "one-touch" reports. This is more than convenient, safe for drivers.
4. Improve Facebook login. Once you authorize connection, do auto login without pass again through Facebook site.
5. Create a new type of camera report like "Police Mobile Radar Spot". These are, like accidents, useful but temporal. Maps are stuffed with fake camera reports.
6. Do not permit to submit "General error report" without addition description.
7. Create an "Add current location" option to record personal destinations in the navigation menu.
8. automatic Power off option to avoid battery draining when location does not change during x minutes.
9. On Editor and navigation maps, add a property that mark a segment (A or B) as Dead End road, instead of using the tricky workaround of editing manual.
10.While you are stopped, user reports start to blink in the screen.. Why do not use "tails" or callouts for popup messages to indicate the exact place in the map of the highlighted one?

Kind of like you have now, but it's so zoomed in and it's hard to zoom out and maintain orientation while driving. It helps me to make decisions earlier whether or not to take certain routes.


Have a look at this suggestion on uservoice - http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59223- ... bar-to-map

I think it's a brilliant idea and could solve your problem - it would definitely be a massive plus for my commute! :D

Trouble is that if conditions change whilst driving, the impact isn't always clear from the popups so the driver will often miss the decision to reroute - this bar would make blatantly clear the conditions ahead at any point, regardless of when they change.
