Good question - I sure wish we'd hear something. I just finished a 3,500 mile road trip and it was so ridiculous that I progressed very quickly from using Waze exclusively to just leaving it running in the background with the destination programmed and the navigation instructions muted so I could still hear the alerts, but using CoPilot to do the actual navigation and map display. That way, I could get the benefits without the annoyance. It's a pain to switch over to it to log incidents and fuel prices, but the four-finger swipe gesture on the iPad makes that a bit easier. The only other downside to this approac is that I think (but I'm not certain) that you might get fewer alerts this way - it seems to not be as "on top of things" when it's running in the background. But I sure felt a lot better not having to argue with it all the time. It's like having a stubborn kid in my iPad: I tell it to show North-up, and every time I look away, it switches back - there's no way I'm putting up with something that's supposed to be helping me arguing with me all day long about the way it's going to display my map.
If I could just get North-up to never revert, and get a distance scale legend on the screen, I'd be very happy with Waze, but as it is, I'm about ready to bag it.
