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.

use case: when I drive along and want to remember to look up something I saw there.
Our maybe I want to be reminded of a nap issue to report there..

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

The ability to mark (on the map editor) bus lanes and their hours, so that waze can somehow mark them when they are active (we have some that are all day and strictly enforced, without even being allowed to quickly drop someone on the roadside, and some that are peak hours only)

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.

I know I can tap and hold.but doing so while driving and then having to enter info on why I did that ( with details) is hard and potentially unsafe, plus I may forget about it later. A quick button that malls the spot, allows me to record a voice note and then later emails me the note with location link etc would be nice.it could group them by trip..

Actually, Waze already has "parking lot" as a category search feature, and they've been open that finding parking is on their roadmap already. Although, that may be changing, but we're not sure. They posted a blog recently about Robin having parking features and you can use Waze to navigate. Though they still may be working to access that kind of data internally instead of relying on another app.

Waze has indicated that the functionality is planned. ETA as always is the ever vague - soon.

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.
