I would leave a couple of slots for "custom" vehicle types to be defined by each community...

For example, we could set a "safe drive car" which would not be allowed to travel through the non politically correct "danger zones".

Hi Folks! We had 1,5 year long discussion about car types like in kindergarten and nothing happened? :mrgreen:

In last 365 days we have Zero developments. IMHO this topic and forum is pretty useless. :lol: Maybe somebody from superchampsmanagers may explain what is going on?

I think a truck and trailer would be a good feature

Country - France


I'm driving a scooter and using Waze.
If 20 cars are driving at 10km/h in a street while 20 scooter are driving at 40km/h, what is the information sent to Waze system and sent by Waze to my phone ?

Why not implement a revolutionary new feature ? It could looks like this :
1/ Possibility to be a "motorbike driver" (among other possibilities) in my profile
2/ When running Waze on my phone a question could appear : "are you driving your motorbike today ?" (after all Waze sometimes ask me if I'm driving or if I'm a passenger ;))
3/ Calculating a travel time specifically designed for motorbikes/scooters either based on car travel times minus x% or based on other scooter drivers :). Even with an alert message "Oh oh ! due to this sooooo great and exclusive new feature, your travel time won't be as precise as usual but is a maximu given the traffic information we have ;)".

And, @petervdveen, by the way when I'm using Waze with my scooter I'm sending Waze "false" informations on traffic. Just because me, and all other motorbikers are driving more easily in heavy traffic or traffic jam...

Splitting car drivers profiles and motorbike/scooter drivers profiles would :
1/ give Waze a really inovative feature (as far as I know, others are not doing this)
2/ send more accurate traffic information to Waze users
3/ be a mean to get more clients ;)

My 2 cents.

There are a lot of truckers out there. Myself included. I always have my phone up for WAZE and my Garmin Dezl GPS up on the dash so I don't hit any bridges. If WAZE added a Truck Mode to the map that would be amazing.

WE NEED A TRUCK MODE! please.....

It is up to the waze editing community to add the truck restrictions to the waze map to make any such designation useful. There is a brief discussion here regarding which roads should be designated as prohibited to trucks. Feel free to use you experience and add your input there.
