Restaurants showing up on map

Postby Zillaguy » Thu Jan 31, 2013 2:55 am

Hello,
Sorry if this has been discussed, but on my navigation map, Dunkin Donuts and Taco Bell are the only two restaurants that always appear. Why?

Thanks..
Roger

I hate this feature. Is there any way to hide them?

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.

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

I think... Waze should start charging for ad free app as well.

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.

I've just downloaded about 5 different versions of Waze. Does anyone know what version the ads showed up in?

Yep... I removed Waze from my phone and I've been living fine without it.
