This suggestion has been posted a few times already and I believe there is an official request for it on the Client Uservoice, link in my sig.

I didn't see anything on uservoice either, which I find odd... Unless I just can't figure out the wording used. I found thread on the forums, which have no mention of a uservoice post:

Also, it would be helpful if the total traffic delay is listed with the event bar. Same as TomTom and CoPilot.

Although hopefully Waze is learning from the Apple / Samsung trial and not copying features, especially patented features. With that said I do not know if Tom Tom has a patent on this.

Waze has committed to give better visibility into why it is routing you a certain way. So hopefully that will help somewhat.

I had a similar post a few months ago: viewtopic.php?t=15037. I did not receive many comments so I though there must not be an interest for the traffic bar. So I didn't do a user voice for it. I'm glad to see that others find it useful and I will vote for it.

Dear Waze Developers,
I have an Idea to make Waze even more useful.



How About we take this Bar thats already in the app.

And put it over here on the right hand side.

Then we add a car to the bar that moves along with your journeys completion.
So when you are 85 percent home, the car has moved 85 percent up the bar.

Also when the Bar-Car (Maybe we should think of a better name) gets near an event an audible alert gets triggered, like when you near a Cop it could say “Oh cock, its the Rozzers!” Or just “Police reported ahead”) Or when you are near a obstacle on road you could be warned – e.g. “Johnny reported a car has stopped on the shoulder 20 minutes ago.” This way you can keep your eyes on the road instead of having to look at the screen to see what’s ahead.

The bar information would be dynamic – if traffic started building up ahead another section of the bar would change colour depending on the conditions.

Having the bar would make the app safer to it users, because you would have all warning along the route in one predictable place. Unlike the current situation where you have to zoom in and out to see what conditions are like for a entire route.

Having the bar would make the app smarter, because you would get all road information sooner. Having this information right on the bar makes for better decision making by the driver, again because all the information is visible right from the start.

Just my suggestion and I would love to get some feedback on this.

Thank

Jason

I was unaware of uservoice.
I had a look and was unable to find anything like "Information Bar" can you perhaps link to it?
