I don't think you can turn it off. Dunkin Donuts is paying Waze money to be on the map.

Where are you and/or can you post a screen shot?


My guess is johnmcboston is from Boston :p

There's a lot of Dunkin Donuts in that area.

Yeah it looks similar in NJ and NY right now. I wouldn't say it was overwhelming. More Wazers, jams, and hazards than DD pins.

When I first located Boston on the map, every Dunkin Donuts marker was accompanied by a Wazer icon, so maybe the advertising is effective.

Indeed, I'm in Boston. Waze seems to be acting up. Now the DD logos keep popping up and going away at random, and the app keeps detecting and reporting (to waze) errors...

So I can't get a good DD photo at the moment, but we do have so many Wazers on the road I'm getting the same effect :)

That is definitely a lot of Wazers. I travel around Los Angeles, CA and see so many Wazers on the map that I cannot see traffic conditions, hazards, police, and other events on my iPhone 4. My solution is to turn off seeing other Wazers. :D

Usually seeing other Wazers is fun. But was a passenger the other night and looked ahead to see if our planned exist had a lot of traffic and saw this. Lots of wazers; many traffic warnings, many speed restrictions. And on top of that, The DD icons. In that image there are a good 20 DD, and I think at that time they all popped up at once. (Playing last night, only a few were popping up).

Looking at my screenshot, I also realize those buttons seem larger than they used to - or is it just me?

Not certain yet if this is a 3.5 issue or even an iOS issue, but that is being discussed here:

Since upgrading to the latest version of waze on my iPhone 4 waze crashes constantly. It is plugged into my USB charging port in my car and connected to a bluetooth->FM transmitter.

Oh, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled waze on the phone twice thinking it might be a corrupted file. :(

Waze has stated before that there will not be more than 4 advertisements visible on the screen at a time. I have yet to see a screenshot with more than 3 or 4.

And with this, I cross into the realm of 10,000+ posts. Paaarty. :ugeek:
