Like you hate child sex trafficking and rape and killing of non-military civilians during war?

No. That's how the app stays free.

It is NOT just restaurants. We have AT&T Stores, and a few Hotel Chains too. You will only see a maximum of three advertising pins on the screen at one time.

NEVER want to lose the Dunkin Donuts ads. I NEED those!! I do not mind the ads if it keeps the app free. In the future when more advertisers join I would like the option of narrowing down who I want to see though. Maybe have categories and members have to have at least one advertising category active. That way if I'm on a 15 hour drive and need coffee or food I can set that to active.

You'd really give up on the best satnav app for a few ads? Where else are you going to get traffic reports for free?
I say stop looking at the screen when you're driving and there won't be an issue ;-)

Same here on my so called amazing S2 AMOLED screen. Not to worry, Samsung or o2 will be replacing it before the end of my contract.
Don't blame Waze for a phone manufacturer's poor design, testing and implementation although I do agree it is too bright and should probably dim between instructions.

If that's what you use Waze for, then what you really need is a dog to sniff out all those bacon ;-)

Time to go back to an older version without the ads.

I just dropped back to Ver 3.2.1 I'll do whatever it takes not to see the ads. If it means giving up Waze completely, then so be it.
