+1 for this request, and the ability to turn it off like the "current speed" feature for those that don't want to use it. As an experienced driver I will alway use my cars instruments to measure my speed and use the speed signs on the road as an indication of the speed limit, but in my opinion this can be a valued safety feature that will assist driver.

I know people often drive faster than the posted speed limit, but it is still good to know what the limit is on the road you are driving in. As an additional feature suggestion, you should be able to set an alert that goes off when you are X mph/kph above the posted limit. You can turn this on/off, and also set X as a fixed number, percentage of limit, etc.

Hi,
I'm daily on the road and often more than 500 km a day. I'm from Germany and driving through the big cities is a pain regarding speed limits. My integrated GPS in my Skoda is like 3 years old so I switched to Waze. Although I'm still new to this app (5 months) I already did some edits in my home area because I regularly encounter new roads and for me it's an awesome feature.
I hope it's going to be integrated, the people will definately maintain it up to date I think.

Greetz from Germany,

Garmin is wrong about the speed limit most of the time.

Usually because they have outdated data, which is something that Waze specializes in!

Just saying!


Speed limit indication and warning when driving too fast is a must, in my humble opinion.
In France and Belgium, you cannot always recognize what is the current speed limit, if for any reason you've missed the sign. On some highways and roads, the limit changes quite often and without evident reason. This probably is intentional, as speed cameras and controls are rather installed to collect fines than for safety improvement on the road.
My wife has a Garmin nuvi, and the indicated speed limits are exact, almost all the time.
The Wazers could report the current speed limit on each road, or the speed limit signs, as we do for dangers e.g.
If you don't want to hear the alarm, you could disable the beep, and still have a small visual icon on the screen. Or not. This would be quite simple to adjust in the Parameters menu.
Looking forward to this !

My Garmin nuvi lists speed limits, no problem, they are (so far) always correct. Waze is so much more sophisticated in so many ways, can't see why they can't do this too.

To see the speed limit is more important than to see the camera speed.

I love the speedometer alerts, especially all of the options for when the app can alert you. Just curious whether there is any way to edit the speed info. It doesn't look like you can edit the speed limit for a particular road? Also, I'd love it if you could see the speed limit on the screen all the time... the little circle with the speed limit shouldn't disappear.

Although it is annoying having a sound notification alert repeatedly indicating when your speed exceeds the speed limit ("SL") on a particular portion of a road, it could very easily be designed that the sound notification alert be in an On or Off status. With the SL shown for the road location where you happen to be at the moment it is very helpful for keeping your speed down and "not getting a ticket" for going over the SL. As has been pointed out by others within this subject, the SL changes as you move along a road going through more and less congested areas. Consequently, when a SL has changed you can miss seeing a SL change indication sign and not see another SL sign for a mile or more. Having the SL always showing on the Waze screen together with your current moving MPH speed (e.g., on the HERE map navigation system) could very easily save a Wazer from getting stopped for speeding.

That has been requested before. But as far as I know it's not planned yet.

Thinking about it, all of us already have a speedometer in front of us in the dash to monitor our speed. I'm not constantly looking at the app for my speed; I just need to know what the speed limit is at all times; there are PS / mH / MH that don't have soon enough signage after a turn or we've accidentally missed seeing them along the way.

Putting instead the speed limit in a revving green / full at 12 o'clock switch to red highlighted circle makes a lot more sense to me.

Also right now with the gray under limit highlight I can barely tell how close I am, and the small limit notation is almost impossible to read when the phone is far enough away mounted on the dash.
