We have been vocal about Waze removing this option since it has little to no benefit to improving the Waze experience and has been causing bad routing, gives the impression that Waze routing doesn't work properly, and has been wasting a lot of time trying to track down map errors that don't exist.
I had some direct communications with Krankyd in the past 24 hours. He has assured me that they are working on getting the option removed from the client as well changing the Goodie Munching setting to OFF for all Wazers.
When this was mentioned at the Waze Meet Up in Palo Alto, there was zero resistance to removing this option. In fact, Ehud (a founder of Waze) said something to the effect of do we need that option? As soon as they understood that it was causing issues, they immediately agreed to get it removed.
I wonder how many people gave a negative App Store or Marketplace review and/or uninstalled Waze because they had turned this option on and then had no faith that Waze could route them to their destination correctly?
