This is a simple one, probably asked, but can you put the road your on at the bottom of your screen?

I wish we could block and report users. I like communicating with others on the road but it comes with the expense of dealing with jerks using irrelevant profanity.
Someone just chatted me to "suck my c**k you fat h*e" for no reason. Not cool. Username was matthew069. I took a photo of it in case I ever get the ability to block/report him.

When you live in a smaller city or town...

Postby B564377 » Tue Jul 24, 2012 3:59 pm

I love Waze.

Using it in a smaller city, however, has it's challenges. Here are just a couple, even when Anonymous is turned on:

- It's easy for someone to know who you are and where you live, when you're home or not, etc. over time.
- Events, such as construction or accidents disappear/timeout too quickly

I'd like to suggest two features:

1) Add the option, "Don't display your current location to other Waze users if within [ x ] km of your home and work address (as stored in Waze)"
2) Set the timeout values for events higher in smaller cities, or even better, in cities that have fewer reports. In a city like Toronto, 10 minutes might be fine, in a city like Woodstock, Ontario, 60-90 minutes would be better.

I'd also like to throw in another feature, and that is a Pause Reporting feature. A bunch of us use Waze while we're running errands or going to garage and yard sales. This results in Waze reporting slowdowns or traffic when there really aren't any. Now we have to use Shut Down each time we stop, which is quick, but then we have to start the application back up and that can sometimes take minutes for Waze to reinitialize and update its map.

Otherwise great product. Thanks!

A very simple thing I'd like to have on the main page is a bar displaying the battery-status of the smartphone. I only have one port in my car and can't charge my phone and something else at the same time.

In fact, I use to have my GPS navigator AND my phone with Waze, because the french map isn't completely clear (yeah, I'm french, that's why I have a terrible english). I use Waze only for the community and its indications on the road.

I would like to see a button 'I'm out of fuel!', that you can press when the fuel light in your car has just sprung to life. Waze then calculates a route to the cheapest gas-station, but without diverging too much from your current route.

The option would have to be to avoid anything that's not a highway. Unfortunately, truck routes do sometimes hit residential streets, so a simple avoidance or preference wouldn't guarantee a good route for truckers. This also doesn't really fit into the target audience for Waze, which is driving commuters.


It's been brought up several times... A truck mode/vehicle type in the client and a "No Trucks" flag that has to be implemented VERY specifically (with input from those Wazers with Class B CDL Licenses & Higher - it's not illegal/unsafe for trucks to use every street that has a "no trucks" sign)... Hopefully for the future...

I thought there was a report/block button as we've gotten a few reports of people accidentally hitting it and then not getting pings/chitchats from people they know. You an also report them by using the form on the Support page. Use the quick help box to search for "Report User", at the bottom of the results (if any) click the email link, fill out that form & it will go to the support staff. I actually reported a spammer this way once and the spam was gone the day I got the response from the support staff - they didn't tell me exactly what happened, but it was either a warning (that the user listened to) or a banning.

I'd like to see a feature that would allow me to place an "X" on the map wherever I'm at (for personal use, not to be added to the public map). I'm an amateur photographer who likes urban decay and I often see interesting places on my way home from work or when I'm trying to get somewhere and can't stop. Unfortunately, I can't always remember where those places are and they go un-photographed.

I think you need to read the wiki and road definitions provided there. Also, some states have different definitions.
