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.

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.

Sad thing is, I don't use it for navigation. Heck, I dont even care about the gas info. I just love to report where the stinking pigs are hiding out at. I was happy with Waze before all the extra crap bells and whistles.
