Speed traps will verbally alert if they are on your route up to 1.1 miles away (which is way too far when in the city driving, IMO). It should also alert if it is on the same street you are on or within a certain distance when not in nav mode. Make sure your audio isn't muted in the main menu front page.

Not sure about Portuguese announcements but the report could have been for the other direction of travel. Waze will show the icon on the map but will only announce the alert if it is along your route and in your direction of travel.

You will only get an audio notification if the camera is along your direction of travel, and if you're traveling faster than the speed limit for the camera (if it has been approved and has that information).

So basically, it only warns you if you're traveling faster than the speed limit of that road. It stops the noise annoying you when you're being good :)

On the droid bionic, in English, Chicago area, and the only hazard voice alerts I am getting are for heavy traffic and red light cameras. I very much want to turn off red light camera alerts and turn on speed trap alerts.
