@fvwazing just because it's the village of Weert, doesn't automatically make it disaster area. That'll make some unhappy residents ;-)

I figured it wasn't very concrete.
They will not go there. Other apps are way better on the pedestrian and bicycle thing. That boat has left and it's to late to jump on.

Just started using Waze. Finding it a nice app. Now see that I'm probably messing things up (speed reports) since I'm riding a bicycle. But, I'm able to document problems though while riding like missing streets and traffic problems, construction zones, so I would like to see a bicycle mode.

Thanks,

I have an pull behind RV and with my Garmin GPS I can enter the length and the height of my vehicle and the gps will not tell me to make U-turns where I can't with a vehicle that large and it won't take me down below bridges that I can't pass under. It also avoids dirt and 4x4 roads where i could get easily stuck. A feature I would like to see is rating gas stations for maneuvering in RVs....sometimes it's a nightmare just getting gas. Image

There are a lot of width, height and weight restrictions around where I drive. If other vehicle types are going to be added, we would need to have some way of adding these restrictions to the map and navigating around them for larger/heavier vehicles.

Nothing is more annoying than seeing Waze plot a zigzag pattern through side streets instead of the (more sensible) route of taking primary streets with a minimum of turns and intersections.


I definetely agree !
I have got zigzag routes many times just to save a few meters instead of going straight by the major roads, saving time and money (brakes and gas).

Gas savings routes would be a quite reasonable benefit to get this feature back.

Best regards to all active and proactive wazers on the road, reporting online info, or behind the keyboards editing those valuables streets and turns !

Cars pulling trailers would be useful. In the UK these are required to go 10MPH below any speed of 60MPH or 70MPH.

@shawndoc: There's nothing crazy on it at all. No, this would be the correct order. But I suspect that (for any reasons beyond this thread and our knowledge) regularly appearing new (social) features are being considered more important than finally completing or fixing the existing ones.
