can we have a countdown on reports for vehicle on shoulder after location reached?
this can permit to have enough time to valid or delete the report
Actually it close when we reach the location.

Nice app, what I would like is to have the voice interrupt my music or atleast lower the sound of the music so I can hear her voice better.
Second I would like to have a better lane guidence when you need to exit a road on the highway. Something more like this would be great:

Anyway, first week I use Waze, love it and allready recommend it to some other people!

Good work Waze. Did 3hrs with new version. Much more stable. Only lost GPS twice, didn't lose network at all. Camera pop ups didn't freeze it, and GPS didn't lag behind.
Thanks!

1. When going to share my drive my preferable way of doing this would be via text message, however since the last few updates I haven't been able to. As you can see from the picture below there is no text in the conversation box where there should be. So I have to resort to emailing my drives instead.

2. On the topic of Sharing your Drives, I feel like its a bit hidden in the "Meet Up" menu, I find myself accidentally clicking on the "Share" icon in the menu only to be directly to share the app instead of my drive. I feel as though a name change for the "Meet Up" tile could be a welcomed change. Maybe just make that tile "My Drive", it just feels like "Meet Up" doesn't accurately describe the menu you're getting into.

3. Hazards - In previous versions of waze when a Hazard popped up notifying you in X amount of feet it told you what the hazard was in the text box. I believe it is now just an icon maybe, but I could be wrong when I'm driving I'm not actively looking at icons to know for sure. However if it is there is an icon for say, a car on the side of the road then I feel like there should be text that says Car on Shoulder in X amount of feet (is it there? Thank you). When driving I feel like words sometimes are a bit better than a picture.

4. Hazards - now to completely contradict what I just said I feel like there should be new icons added for hazards. Mainly the weather hazards. I feel like with bad weather ahead an actual icon for the weather reported(ie a fog icon, hail icon, rain icon, and snow icon, maybe add an Ice Icon) should be put on the map so you have a better idea of what you're driving into rather than seeing a hazard icon which could be any number of things on the map.

6. I feel like the Direction Arrows are a bit confusing and need to be updated. A prime example:
While this doesn't show exactly what I'm about to say it helps. when it comes to staying left, or staying right it shouldn't be the same icon as Exiting Left or Right. I feel like the icon should be more like this for an Exit left or right:
This would make it easy to distinguish the action you really need to be taking.

7. The text box displaying your ETA information needs to be resized or the box needs to be bigger to give room for longer trips

Thanks for your suggestions, we're taking them under consideration.
We are also aware of the bugs you've mentioned and working on fixing them.

I think I had option to avoid toll roads in my client, but now it's gone... I live in Poland and I think we have toll roads feature, because when I'm trying to navigate somewhere, sometimes I get the indication, that it's routing via toll road.

I have been in latest betas, and now have the newest update from the Google Play store. After a pretty long driving trip this past week with the Holiday and I noticed a lot of stuff that could be changed for(in my opinion) the better. I have since double checked in the latest version these thoughts and suggestions since it just came out, and they have not been fixed/implemented yet. So here goes my list:

All my issues could be specific to my phone so I will say now I am running a Motorola Droid Bionic running Android 4.0.4.

1. When going to share my drive my preferable way of doing this would be via text message, however since the last few updates I haven't been able to. As you can see from the picture below there is no text in the conversation box where there should be. So I have to resort to emailing my drives instead. [ img ]

2. On the topic of Sharing your Drives, I feel like its a bit hidden in the "Meet Up" menu, I find myself accidentally clicking on the "Share" icon in the menu only to be directly to share the app instead of my drive. I feel as though a name change for the "Meet Up" tile could be a welcomed change. Maybe just make that tile "My Drive", it just feels like "Meet Up" doesn't accurately describe the menu you're getting into. Yes you can do the pick up request within that menu, but for me I just like sharing my drive to family members who want to know I'm still arriving safely and on time to my destination(not necessarily to see them). Ultimately I just think it needs to be easier to get to Sharing Your Driving, I feel like in previous versions it was, but now there are more steps.

3. Hazards - In previous versions of waze when a Hazard popped up notifying you in X amount of feet it told you what the hazard was in the text box. I believe it is now just an icon maybe, but I could be wrong when I'm driving I'm not actively looking at icons to know for sure. However if it is there is an icon for say, a car on the side of the road then I feel like there should be text that says Car on Shoulder in X amount of feet (is it there? Thank you). When driving I feel like words sometimes are a bit better than a picture.

4. Hazards - now to completely contradict what I just said I feel like there should be new icons added for hazards. Mainly the weather hazards. I feel like with bad weather ahead an actual icon for the weather reported(ie a fog icon, hail icon, rain icon, and snow icon, maybe add an Ice Icon) should be put on the map so you have a better idea of what you're driving into rather than seeing a hazard icon which could be any number of things on the map. Basically eliminating the need to click on a hazard icon while driving to see what the hazard is up ahead. With winter coming quickly I feel like I'll be using the weather updates more often to report poor road conditions, and I feel like this would be a beneficial addition to the list of map icons to help drivers out.

5. Map problems, this has happened on every version of waze for me, but I noticed it happened a bit more frequently on this past trip. While I'm driving all of the sudden it seems as though waze doesn't know where I am. For example I was driving and I didn't have any thing to do for 120 miles when I got to about 20 miles from the next thing I had to do waze acted like it was updated and then said 20 miles Proceed to Highlighted Route. I'm not sure what the issue is, but like i said it does happen frequently.

8. Really? What's the deal with Dunkin Donuts? I don't care where they are so why are they on my map?
