how to delete/clear my recent routes?

Postby xeno76 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 12:48 pm

Hi,
Can you tell me how to clear / delete the routes that have been assoicated to my account?

I'm talking about the list that shows up under "Navigate->History" I can't seem to find a way through the iphone client, or through the web site.

Thanks!

I think you can click on each item and hit remove. No way to do them all that I remember.

Great! That worked for removing them from my app.
What about removing them from the "My Dashboard" and "Your Recent Routes" from the http://www.waze.com/dashboard/ site?

Thanks!

The routes (not destinations) that you see on the website cannot be removed. They are the basis of your editing permission area and hold the speed data Waze uses to give you and all users routing and ETA information. They are the raw data that makes Waze what it is.

If you are worried about privacy, only you can see your whole route. Anywhere else that someone else can see it (GPS points, map problem reports), gets a scrubbed version which removes the ends of the routes, and your user information is not shown.

"only you can see your whole route" assuming the develops do a get job. Everything can be hacked. Also until you get a judge order to hand it over to the police.

If you are concerned about the amount of detail being captured when you use Waze you can use anonymous mode. If that is still not adequate, Waze likely isn't for you.

The method shown by Waze, which says to select a destination from the history list, does not not work. On my phone (iPhone) this action does not go to a preview screen which includes the remove option, but rather goes directly to route calculation. I am apparently using the most recent version of Waze, per the Apps Store. Any suggestions, short of deleting the app altogether?

You need to click the small arrow on the right side next to the entry to get the options. If you press anywhere on the line other than that arrow, it will go straight to navigation mode. This is standard iOS design that you will see in most apps.

Sorry to jump into an old thread, but I don't have an arrow on the right side. I have an exclamation point inside a circle. Is there another way to clear recent history?
