Vehicle stopped on road and vehicle stopped on should are both current reporting options in the app.

New Feature Request: Breakdowns

Postby asharom » Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:58 pm

Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but here goes...

Vehicles often breakdown in the middle of the road.

Currently, there is a Hazard option for 'Car Stopped on Shoulder', but no option for the above.

The closest I can get to would be 'Object on Road' and place 'Car breadkdown' under the remarks.

Maybe another descriptor could be added?


On a related note, perhaps Waze might consider what Dropbox does and have a 'new feature vote list' which makes it easier for users to indicate highly requested new features?

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Some markets have yet to push the latest version (android speaking). My phone did not alert me to the new version. I checked for an update manually. I guess many wazers have yet to update to this version.

That's what you get for trusting beta threads. I just checked and I still have no vehicle stopped on road (only on shoulder). I guess they changed "car" or whatever it was on the shoulder menu to "vehicle".

Does it at least work on ASR? I still haven't tweaked mine to get speech recognition working here.

Newer than 3.5.3.0? With that, I'm still getting the same old "on road" hazard options as before - object on road, roadworks, pothole and roadkill.

Why don't "danger on road" and "danger on shoulder" just share the same drop down list?
Put the most common for "on road" at top and most common for "on shoulder" at bottom. Of course "oil", "pot hole", "work", etc is usual "on road" than "on shoulder" so they should be put at bottom.

It's the same for dead animal (road kill) and animal. They can both appear "on road" and "on shoulder". Now you can't chose if the animal is dead or alive depending on where you would like to report it. If its "on road" it has to be dead (of course it probably will be if it stays there) but in reality it could be alive and running all over. That's probably much worse than a dead just laying there.
