Better of would be to move pop up to any of the sides making map readable... or anything similar..
But it has to be fixed! Very unhelpful

Pop-up Alerts Obscure Map

You mean what's been posted at least twice in just the last two weeks alone? Why is it google is used to search so often but a forum search is so unused?

Turn off "download traffic data" in adv settings. This has other effects too, but is currently the only way.

Pop-up Alerts Obscure Map

Postby bunnly » Fri Sep 28, 2012 8:47 pm

When traffic alerts pop-up on my iPhone they obscure the map underneath, so I can't see where the problem actually is. It's really frustrating because some roads are several kilometers long and without at least the cross-street in the pop-up, I have no idea where the alert is referring to.

For example I see: Complete Standstill, Kingsway, Burnaby. But where on Kingsway in Burnaby? And if I close the alert to see the map, it takes me back to my current location.

Am I doing something wrong?

Any solutions or work-arounds to this problem? I'll post this in the usability forum as well.

I agree, very unhelpful. The alerts are pretty much useless without at least the cross-street. An alert to a random, undisclosed location

i hate this as well...sometimes it'll alert something and i need to see where exactly it is on the map as so i can avoid it.

I has been asked for years, but waze apparently does not care about usability. Or they forgot how it is done, so now they don;t want to touch this, because it could ruin the whole client app :lol: :lol:

Not only do they obscure the map, but they also obscure the current turn instructions. So when I'm sitting at a red light, they start popping up, and if I forget which way I'm supposed to turn at this light, I look down and expect to be able to see the next turn, but I have to close that annoying pop-up first.

Can we not have the option to turn those off entirely?? Thank you.

Other threads have discussed this with the idea of making them partially transparent.
