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.

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

This is not about the button in the notification bar. That still works.

This is about a way to automatically (!) make Waze exit. This doesn't work with the current version of Waze using the described use of AutoShortcut.

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.

Why has this been removed? :cry: I've been looking for this functionality for a long time.

Nope, they appear to have removed it.

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"

Have you been able to get this to work on the latest Beta? They seem to have changed it, and obscured it or something. The only activity I can find now is FreeMappAppActivity which just seems to launch the app, doesn't exit it when it's running.

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.
