i think each country has different Waze app version.. right? and only downloadable locally (by SIMCard number identity)

It's the same Waze App from the Play/App Store, depending on which OS you use, there is no need to download another Waze App (they don't exist). You can add the passes from anywhere by loading the full list from the menu which contains them.
Your ability to see the menu, however, may depend on your GPS location, menus can appear/disappear from the Waze App settings based on which country you open the App in. So you could be in Asia and not see this menu, but after you travel to Europe and open it in a EU country it will become visible.

Hello all.

One question, I don't have the vignette yet, and I only want to buy it in December.
I'm about to cross switzerland, but even without adding vignette, waze is sending me to highways that need it, warning me that I need it.
Is there anyway just to make it avoid the places where it is needed ?

Thanks

If you don't add the pass Waze should not let you use road where it's needed. I've never heard of cases where that did not work. Are you sure that you removed it or didn't add it before trying to find a route? Can you show a screenshot?

There is also the old option to "avoid highways" in the app that you could turn on once you cross the border.

Waze Livemap is great for planning at home, but only if you don't own the CH/AT-Vignette or just don't want to use the highways. For highways, I have to use the App.
Will it ever work in Waze Livemap?

Staff are constantly working on Livemap changes lately. It's easy to see with the new left panel menu they added and new features like "Send to phone". Regarding passes support they said they wouldn't expect it to be available until the end of 2019, so perhaps more during Q1 or Q2 2020.
