For those spots where sunglare can happen - it is a combination of weather (clear sky) and angle/position of the sun. Both can be known from sources or calculation, and if the conditions are right for a spot, an alarm could be triggered. But... given Waze's record of not getting the automatic day/night switching right I wouldn't try to depend on it :D .

Winter-conditions are another tale: they could be known from weather-sources, the day that it starts snowing Waze could learn from observation what happens to the traveltimes and next year, as soon as weather-sources say it will snow - Waze could adjust traveltimes/give extra timepenalties to those streets that apparently are not cleared from snow etc. Also a nice idea but it will only add to the precision of routing on 5 or 10 days per year in those areas where snowfall is a problem. Count in some extra time for the Israelis to debug this!

To sum it all up: these are very much niche-wishes that do not influence commuting by 99% of the population. Do not expect the trouble of developing this to get justified anytime soon.

A connection with this database would be nice:

http://www.meteoalarm.eu/

And wheather reports should not be with a pushpin anyway. They should trigger regional warnings without pop-up, but just a small icon or something like that.

Problem: this location is wrong, the store and the address are a mile or so south and on the other side of the street. this address is in the Cypress Point shopping center. it's right next door to Chuck E. Cheese
Reported on: September 24


I love the detail, the directions as to what store is next to the location, but it's missing a key element. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?

This is a constant problem due to users assuming the people who read their reports (which they assume are Waze employees) have full information of where they started, the search terms (if any), destination address (if any), and destination gps position. This is because no one ever reads the privacy policy/eula.

I moved to Miami and have different issues than what I had in San Antonio. In San Antonio, people wouldn't put any info in their complaints. Here in Florida, they put info in, but it's not specific enough. I've seen tons of "address is wrong" or "address is half a mile down the road" or something like that. And when I try to get more info from them, I hear crickets chirping as I await a reply.

Actually, I know what they are talking about, but it's out of my area. They reported it in my area. I can send you a msg when I'm back on the computer.
