simply amazes me how companies can come up with some of the most useful and intelligently planned out apps only to have them made absolutely useless by selling their souls to companies who's ads people do not want to see.

If you're going to cram unwanted ads down people's throats, then at least give them the ability to pay for an ad-less version; It's not rocket science.

If it wouldn't be for the police notifications (because I really like that sammy hagar tune) I would no longer use this app. I can use google maps navigation with TBT directions for free WITHOUT all the BS ads. Frustrating.

Perlin, why you don't reply to us with one of your best learned lessons?

Pop-ups should no longer (again) be showing unrelated data.

I noticed this morning that the address was less than specific. I had a pop-up warning of debris on the road on I-10 E. I-10 E is a fairly long road - in fact, if I'm not mistaken it runs from Jacksonville, FL to Los Angeles, CA.

Also for me, from yesterday, I'm receiving popups from outside my planned route.
My settings are:
- No group popups
- Notification only on route
Anyway, having popups that doesn't show the warning point on the map is very useless. I have to read the address of the event in order to understand if it is interesting or not. Months ago, when Waze was better, popups were on the right place on the map.
I't is also courious that all popups notifications follows a marketing popup.
Very disappointed with all this!
(But I'm still disappointed also for the bad, useless and wrong explanations that Perlin gave me about the popup reports some time ago :evil: :evil: :evil: )

This was reported as fixed about an hour ago in the experts forum.
Stationary pop-ups was not limited just to the route, but showed unrelated info as well since yesterday.

Try turning off the Group popups. Under Settings / Social / Pop-up reports / None

The group popups will show you reports made by members of your group regardless of where the reports were made and where you are.

I noticed the same thing, this morning. I was 1.2 miles from my set destination (work), yet the pop ups were for incidents clear on the other side of town, one 16 miles away! If I'm closer to my destination than the report, which isn't even on the route to my destination, then why is it being displayed?

I live in a fairly "sparse" waze area (I rarely see any other wazers on the map), and today for the first time in 6 months, I got a popup while stopped and it was for an incident 30 miles away and in the opposite direction I was heading (my radius setting is 5 miles).

I concur.
