There should be the option to disable these. There should also be the option to restrict to a smaller radius, and there should be the option to show only those on my route. Waze has stated more options are coming. Not sure when, though.

If you're expecting some kind of answer from Waze any time soon, you're going to be disappointed. This feature request has been out there for over a year and it hasn't happened yet. You can try twitter or Facebook and you'll likely get the "we're looking into it for a future release" type of message.

Disable POP-UPS while stopped

How to turn them off is posted in the FAQ. And other threads.

The FAQ is pretty clear that it can be turned off. With a FAQ entry, instead of retyping the same answer 1000 times per month, I simply get to write, "read the FAQ" (with link).

Another thing is why can't it be made turned off like it is for Group pop-ups? But instead you have to disable traffic information at all.

This is just one of dozens of threads about the same issue. The direct link has been posted before, many times. And I tire of posting it repeatedly, especially that day.

Why can't you disable it like group popups? Because that setting is not available to us. Pretty simple. Yes, you have to turn of visual traffic data, but the routing servers still can reroute you due to traffic jams/accidents. You just don't get the alerts.

tomzuu wrote:A red and orange colored nearby streets on the screen while driving gives enough information about traffic on them, I don't need a pop-up for that

I don't really even need the colors. I let Waze handle the routing on the back-end.

tomzuu wrote:Although battery checker needs an option to be disabled. I'm clearly see my battery meter all the time while Waze is running, I don't need a notification pop-up about 30%...

Is this a "feature" of Android? Because on iOS we only have the OS-based notification and that has nothing to with Waze.

Since that is unbelievable annoyance, people will ask this question again and again. Sadly there are pretty many annoyances like that with waze, so if you have no patience to answer the same questions you can always ignore them :)

Absolutely agree. But it is perfectly acceptable to reply with "read the FAQ" because that's what any reasonable person should be doing anyway.

This request is to allow disable pop-ups and still have speed data. WiKi says it is not possible as of now and the community understands that, but the request is to make it possible. That's the point. ;)

No one is saying otherwise. The FAQ explicitly states it is a workaround with side-effects.

Disable POP-UPS while stopped

olestas wrote:Well, now if you select popups only on your route, they are shown much less.

In fact, as Waze has stated multiple times, the server is locked down to "on route only" and the client adjustments have no effect. Some say otherwise. I personally have received two popups for hazard or traffic since December.


Tapatalk made me do it.

Actually, I'm incorrect, but not by much. You are, I believe, more correct. viewtopic.php?p=358338#p358338

Today, for the first time in many months, I received MANY, way more than four, pop-ups while stopped. And they were nowhere near my route, though I was in nav mode. Changing the Event Radius made no difference.

I appears that someone screwed up some code again.
