why not simply put a 'shut down WAZE X seconds after reaching destination' timer options?
A '0' setting would prevent auto-shutdown, otherwise a timer countdown would start when 'you have reached your destination' is triggered.

A second option could allow shutdown when you are stationary for X amount of time (have to allow for GPS wandering in the definition of 'stationary'). A 'traffic jam' response would prevent the shutdown.

Agreed on tasker, I use it to kill waze when it leaves my car's BT. But that doesn't exit cleanly and waze treats it as a crash! I've requested this feature before and seen a couple of others do it too. I'll raise it again but I wouldn't expect anything in the near future!

That's still one touch too many. It only takes two to exit properly. I'd imagine waze still treats that as a crash too? So the current tasker solution is still preferred, as it kills the app with no touches, but not yet optimal.

The latest beta actually makes this possible! Not directly but on Jellybean devices there is a new "Shut off" shortcut on the notification tray.

You can hook into this using Tasker if you install the "Autoshortcut" plug-in

Once in your Tasker Profile hit "+" to add an action then choose "Plugin" -> "AutoShortcut"

Hit the "Edit" button. At this point it will depend on your launcher, using Nova the top list item I get is "Activities", I click that, expand "Waze" and there is an activity in there named something like "Shut Off"

Nope, they appear to have removed it.

It doesn't. It won't do its final upload. I'd be surprised if your drives were uploading correctly.

I'd also like this, but please don't make it Tasker-specific.
I use Llama, which is a similar program but less powerful and free.
However, if they could just add an intent or even a Locale action plugin to do this that'd be great.

Right now I just have it vibrate and play a notification tone to remind me to shut Waze down manually.

Hi Tomas,

This feature was not removed. The Android allows only to top priority tasks to be on top notifications bar and to have this button, so maybe you (and others) got another task with higher priority.
