Feature Request: Since we can assume that Waze users are driving while using, and that their phone is mounted somewhere on the dashboard of their car, all of the popup menus need to be readable at a distance of between 18 and 24 inches. Therefore I suggest that all popup windows fill the screen allowing for at least a matrix (5x8) of 40 selection icons. No need to have a scrollable box. In addition, on-screen icons for up to 4 shortcut icons such as "Heavy Traffic" that would "send" your report as soon as you press the shortcut. And of course, get rid of the annoying popup traffic reports.

Feature Request: Please add one or two more zoom-in levels. Also, have on-screen display of what zoom level you are at.

Feature Request: Use a darker blue color to the inside of the "Menu" icon and add a bright yellow color to the inside of the "Report" icon. "Yellow" is the international color for alerts.

Feature Request: While going a "navigate to" there is a ETA window at the bottom center of the screen. When we are not doing a "navigate to", please display a digital clock at that location. A lime green color would be nice and in "settings" be able to change the default color.

Really, this isn't feature request thread. We have the uservoice system for that. Don't bother putting that here as it will just get lost.

I do not know what the "uservoice system" is, please expain.

This may have been mentioned in the past. When I "thank" someone for their posted alert, the widow should then close immediately rather than staying on-screen.

Feature Request: Earlier I requested to have the zoom level displayed on-screen, To save real estate insert a tiny black zoom factor number within the "Menu" icon in the bottom left of the screen, the maximum zoom-in level being "1".

Speaking about zoom levels, if I zoom in all the way (zoom level 1) then press the "-" icon six times (zoom level 7) no highways are displayed. In theory then, the zoom level should be limited to level 6, or continue to show the highways at the higher zoom levels.

Why ?
I could need to zoom out to see another town then zoom in again !

I agree with you. I am just saying that if I zoom out so that I can see a town that is 50 miles away, I should be able to see the highway (or highways) that go there and the road conditions. I personally prefer the color coding over the bubble alerts.

in the popup for an upcoming hazard, some description of the hazard would be nice.... it's all well and good to say "weather ahead" or "hazard ahead" but "stopped car" and "construction" and "pothole" all require different things... and never mind the differences between "rain" and "fog" and "ice/snow".

Previously, I requested that in the "Report" menu, we have a full screen display of possible traffic conditions and hazzard alerts. In full screen, you would be able to view a 5x4 matrix which is 20 selections. If more are needed, we could "swipe" to a second page. I would like to see selections for "brush fire" and "structural fire" which is common in my area. Also, if I am 500 feet away from a fire, I should be able to "press and hold" the location and have an option to display the hazard at that GPS location.
