You can't. Like Apple, they know best.

Please remove it.
Map / main screen is not right place for it when I don´t want to use it!

How can I remove it please???

I don't think the OP was asking how to remove it I think he was requesting for it to be removed. Just my guess because that's what this Forum is about.
And this has already been requested, but I absolutely agree with it.

Please allow us the option to remove the find friends icon!!!


Maybe then I'll update the app without rolling back again.

Replacing useless to me clutter with even more clutter doesn't seem like a good option.

settings/advanced/ "Display map controls on tap" , uncheck it to off. This removes the add friends but replaces it with North direction arrow and plus minus buttons that allows you to zoom in or out. For me at least those are usable and actually let me see some of the map because they are less obtrusive.

My guess is that this button has a lot to do with the philosophy of Waze being a socially enabled gps application. Integration with friends exists throughout the application, and adds many very nice features like letting your friends know how close you are. At the end of the day, they are trying to encourage this social use case and so make the button prominent.

Again this is just a guess, no real info to back that.
