And this makes overlapping of reports even worse. I can't get to one hazard to tap "not there" before one or more pop up for 1800ft down the road. Not helpful. IMO, the oldest alert should remain onscreen. Then once dismissed popup the next one, even if it is only 40ft away.

Today, while driving on a Waze typed Freeway, I got warnings multiple times at ~1800 feet (~.3 mile / .5km)... Seems like Waze made a change... :D

this must be on Android. iPhone does not have this file that I can find anywhere (only other preference files, but I have not decoded which ones would be holding this data.


Is it in km or miles ?

Fully agree. Warnings should be earlier. Also would be nice to configure warnings. For example when I am riding my bike - I cannot look at the screen. I just want to hear through my headphone know if police is somewhere in 3 mile area (I believe this distance should also be configurable).

Agreed, more warning on police locations would be helpful. And I also agree the road hazard warnings are currently just right.

I would make an exception for permanent alerts (i.e. camera alerts). I would much rather know about the new hazard just beyond the camera that is always there (plus the not there button for cameras doesn't do anything anyway). Other than that I am in agreement and concur that waze is not handling overlapping alerts well.

I got that now. Actually, isn't there a bug with alerts that they don't stop talking when Mute is turned on?


I don't think it's a bug... it seems to mute only the navigational prompts and not the warnings. I find it very useful. :)

And please add warning not to use waze while riding the bike, since it is not obvious to everybody :evil: :evil: :evil:
