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?

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.

Hate the new speed-cam alert. It fills the screen and won't disappear until something like 10-15 seconds after I've passed it. Coming home on the M4 elevated section, where there seems to be a camera every other lamp-post, I ended up not seeing the map the entire time. Fortunately, I knew where I was going anyway, but for a stranger, the inability to see the map for warnings with a too-small cross for closing them, is a positive disincentive to use Waze.

The same scenario occurs if you click on an icon to see other users.

Not good!

3.5 does not work on my IPhone4 at all. I have the latest OS on my Iphone and I just upgraded to 3.5 and I cannot get Waze to open. It gets as far as the map begging to load then it just shuts off. It shows that Waze is running in the background but it never actually loads the GUI. I've tried rebooting the phone twice and I run into the same problem. Very frustrating as I was just starting to use the App as a new user. Any fix for this?

Iphone4 - Not Jailbroken
IOS 6.01 - Just Upgraded today
Waze 3.5 - Upgraded earlier this week

The only way Waze will boot up is if I'm connected via wifi. If I take my Iphone to my car and it connects with 3G it looks like it's going to start and the map begins to draw then it just shuts down. No error message. Nothing I do changes this behavior. I've rebooted the phone. I've re-installed Waze. Not sure what else I can do.

Jailbroken or not? Do you have anything plugged into the dock connector?


Mine is doing this too, after months of being rock solid on my iPhone 4s. Not jailbroken, but plugged into my car stereo through the usual dock connector (it's a '13 Nissan Altima factory radio) which had worked for the past month without issue until the latest update. Now I haven't been able to use waze since the upgrade. I sometimes get to where it says there's been a crash and then it crashes again. I've tried removing it from the system tray but that doesn't seem to have any effect (I didn't expect it to, but hey, let's try everything, right?)

That's the issue and it's been posted by a several people in this thread. It is not fixed in the current beta either. They are trying to find the cause of the crashes.

I am testing the beta against the issues raised in this thread.


I confirmed this tonight. But since using it untethered is a non-starter for me, how can I back up to the earlier version? I scanned the thread but may have missed it.

I must confess I almost crashed my car at least 3 times because I was desperate to close that damn warning to see the map below. Couldn't the radar alert be replaced by a smaller button to the side of screen which, after pressed, would present additional options (like "not here")? I fail to understand the logic of showing a big window over the route your are trying to follow...


Include me as a user disliking the new small Close buttons. They were much easier to use in the previous version.

It's great that finally iphone 5 support. And some improvements looking good.

But all this social crap and linking to Facebook friends and meet ups etc is nonsense. So annoying that they bothered working on this pointless stuff and still there is no improvement to the bad way it handles traffic. Still no traffic bar. Still no way to detour. Still no way to show only events on route. Still no detailed summary of events ahead. That should all be priority. Not silly meet up things.
I also want a way to remove that meet up stuff and Facebook stuff. Would be nice if there was an option to clean up the app if you didn't want to do all that stuff. Would clean up the main menu and save lots of screen real estate (especially for lesser phones than iPhone 5). Please find a way to do this.

It's still good, just disappointed in the direction of focus of the update when the app is meant to be about traffic and needs huge improvement in that area. But iPhone 5 support. Now I can use it again

Looks like need to add enable/disable carpool lanes features. It's now sending me onto HOV express lanes on I-15. Didn't before.
Menu scrolling is no big deal. If the icons could be rearranged would be better to move out of the way the 4+ useless ones.
Would also be good to make touching anywhere on the pop-up alerts (other than the buttons) to close them. Trying to hit that small X while driving is not a thought through idea.
Seems to work fine though.
