And there is no way to do this on iOS due to Apple restrictions.

Since waze rarely "nails" the address, this would hardly ever work. Your navigator would close 2 blocks too soon or not close when you arrived.

Multiple stops on a trip rarely act right for the same reason. Waze does not realize the first leg is over when it is or vice versa.

I just double tap the home button and swipe the ap away. It takes like one second, and I'm picking up the phone anyway.

Actually, there is (at least with Android). Did this with Tasker myself at the weekend (and no need to root). No nasty messages about abnormal shutdowns. You need to use the following intent:

Action: Eliran_Close_Intent
Cat: Default
Target: Broadcast Receiver

Create a task with an action of Send Intent (found under Misc actions). I delay by 1 minute after disconnection of Bluetooth (using the Wait action found under Task).

Doesn't work for me on my Nexus 4 running Android 5.1.1 using Waze 3.9.4.0. It's still in Waze's AndroidManifest.xml, however:

Code: Select all
<receiver
android:name=".CloseIntent"
android:exported="false">
  <intent-filter>
    <action
   android:name="Eliran_Close_Intent"/>
  </intent-filter>
</receiver>

Wow, I saw that intent mentioned somewhere else and thought they were kidding. But it does work. Normal intent names have the product path somewhere in it, as well as something that somewhat describes what it does. I had looked at the manifest to verify that that the intent exists, and then found this page.

So, thanks for the info! Works great.
