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).

bike ≠ bicycle. obviously bicycling wazers mess it up for everybody else, but more configuration on audio warnings for motorcyclists would definitely make things safer for them and those around them.

I top out around 550 feet running vzw BB Bold 9650. That's well within clocking range even though it's short of the 1/4 mile most courts uphold. The visual tracking is already been established at those distances.

Trapster would warn at 1 mile radius which was nice.

I agree. Would like earlier non routing warnings (police, etc) or set by user. Also have Is it still there set by user.

I started a thread about this sort of hidden settings here http://world.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=25140 (Portuguese language...)

Maybe we could start a documentation about this in the International Wiki?

I agree too:
- sooner (the best would be a distance manually choosen)
- louder
- 2 way for some warning ( the best here too would be manualy choosen)

I know it's in uservoice but is there a way to know if it's on the way by the Devs or not (then about when ?)



You can manually change it tweaking the \Waze\preferences file.

Code: Select all
Line 318: Alerts.Police Alert Distace: 600
Line 319: Alerts.Hazard Alert Distace: 600
Line 320: Alerts.Accident Alert Distace: 2000
Line 321: Alerts.Heavy Traffic Alert Distace: 3000

I agree the warning should be sooner. I also think the "is it there?" prompt should stay on the screen a little longer. I am also unsure if you get warnings for the opposite lane. I think you should get a trouble warning regardless of lane.

I would like to have the ability to turn off navigation audio and only have audio on traffic feedback. Most of the time I know where I am going, but I would like to know what I can expect ahead. Looking at the phone all the time is not an option. Maybe it is already an option? I haven't found it :?
