I think this, along with full allowed turns by default would make the editor more efficient. Unfortunately, we've been asking for it since before WME was released to the general public in late 2011.

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.

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.

I've been leaving myself a reminder using voice commands (Siri on ios ) which I then use to later add a map problem from livemap. Then I or other editor can solve it.

I guess two threads is better than one? nope. The answer is still the same though.

Sure, but editing an existing favorite to change pin location or heck, how bout just the name!, would be so much easier.

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.

Is your finger 2/3 the screen width? :D You can zoom in enough to select a specific point along a standard city block.

In landscape mode, this would become problematic. Add in the nav bar and the destination bar and you've got like 10% space left for seeing the actual map.

Add a Stop already does this, though it seems to concentrate on around where you are now and the destination, and not so much some of the interim locations. That feature just needs some adjusting, but in general it does appear to work.

mercedesE63 wrote:Also I'd like to see a button for a quick flip to a panned back version of the map oriented N to S that has highways/streets color coded according to their flow/traffic level. 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.

Isn't that the entire point of Waze's automated traffic avoidance based on segment traffic based on current conditions and historical data?

You can post it for the opposite direction, but the feature, generally, just doesn't work when it comes to notifications. Waze knows about it.
