Not that we have ads here (I wouldn't mind unobtrusive ads), but recently I've just been switching waze on then turning the screen off. It's burned the display on my S2 with the extra bright buttons and devs wouldn't do anything to dim the display when no navigation instructions are imminent.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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 ;-)
