Right on target!

If you can use voice commands, ice is an option.

New weather hazard request

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Fri Feb 01, 2013 3:36 pm

Please search before posting. There are several threads about ice already. It's only a voice command for now. And there are too many "slippery road" possibilities to add, so the request is to just have a single slippery road option later. It doesn't really matter why it's slippery.

I see you found one of the may other threads about this: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=33798

Please search first next time.

It is only available in the voice commands - BUT you can always select weather, tap the back button (on Android, not sure about iPhone) to not select a specific type of weather, and they add a description of "Ice" or something similar.

New weather hazard request

Postby heatham » Fri Feb 01, 2013 3:33 pm

Is it possible for Waze to add a new weather hazard such as "icy roads"? In the past several weeks here in Utah I have wanted to warn other motorists of black ice or icy road conditions, but there is no appropriate weather warning in Waze.
Please advise.

Thank you for the response. I doubt a majority of users would know this exists and I would dare say that 90% plus of users don't search this blog for functionality updates.
Also, I don't have voice commands enabled because I either have people in my car with me or I'm listening to the radio and these create major problems for using voice commands.

Same comment here. Black Ice, Snowy Road and No visibility are the worst danger during Winter.
