Is there anyway to turn off the annoying sound of driving over the soccer balls.

I agree this feature is useless but the sound interrupting my drive is very annoying and is turning me off from using this app...if it doesn't relate to my commute then I don't want to be interrupted, especially when my music mutes in my car to tell me I have hit a soccer ball.....I could care less and would assume a lot of other people could care less.

If they wanted it to be less intrusive maybe put a +1 that shows on the screen with zero sound effects.

Let me know if there is anything I can do.

Thanks, this should work... That is the one spot in settings I did not check.

TEAMS are a stupid idea, stupidly implemented. GROUPS were good, but needed maturity. I may change my feeling after TEAMS become usable by users, not by developers. By the way, a well designed and implemented feature should be used without any additional help. We, the users, are not interested in company motivation. We are interested in a product easy to use and very fast to learn. Waze, at this stage is, is neither the first, nor the second.
Need proof? See how many complaints about TEAMS being useless....

Why [...] did you remove Groups before a replacement was ready to implement?
Teams? Fotball?!? WTF?!? I HATE football!
Get serious!!! Do you think we are playing around in the traffic, or what?
Is this Waze meaning of traffic security?
This is not what I want.

Get your acts together immediatly please.

Groups is not supposed to be replaced. Groups has been removed, because it was useless.

Then don't use it. Maybe in the future there will be a game that will interest you. What teams do you support, maybe you have a good suggestion? Formula 1, Hockey, Rugby, Polo, Swimming, Skying...

1st of all, I don't think there is any security thing in here, because there aint anything that you have to do during driving, other then just driving over some soccerballs.

Nobody forced you to use the new teams feature, right?

Well, it's working properly, I think and most people like the new feature.

Wow, people get worked up over something that is just a lighthearted fun little game. I thought it was interesting and fun, like the Holiday goodies were.

Groups was a perfect way to keep track of i.e. the scooter buddies during i.e. a scooter rally.
Or to see where the gang is hangin' on a saturday night.
Somehow it feels that it was the "social" part of "social GPS" that was removed.

I just don't understand why you removed a working function, and now you don't even bother to provide a good explanation.

Driving over footballs, golfballs, candy or whatever is just annoying.
Also, it might contribute to increased pollution, since people might choose to drive a longer way "just to get that candy points".
How is this corresponding with Googles environmental policy?

Maybe it's just me being grumpy because of the weather in Sweden right now, but I feel that Groups was the first reason to use Waze.

How does one create a team. I do some of the IT work at my location and the General Manager would like to start one with our logo?
Thanks!
