I would agree... adding a way to limit notifications to only incidents along your intended route would be great. It was the first setting I looked for after I used the app.

Waze is supposed to be working on that. Perhaps for the next version... maybe not. We won't know until the beta is released. They are working on v3.5 now, feature set or changes not released yet.

To be honest, and this might have been said loads of times, I would prefer to turn them off totally. I'm one of those people that likes to look ahead on the map (even without zooming and such) while i'm standing in front of a traffic light to see what my next few actions will be. But since the map will start showing the items at 5mph it gets totally annoying. Also 5 miles (8 kilometers in big boy terms, sorry!!!) is also a very big radius in cities in for instance the netherlands, I get almost all reports of entire amsterdam while waiting near my house ;).

Just an on/off switch like all other warnings would do it for me :mrgreen:

I would like to also advocate for route only info. I live in the LA metro region with a 25 mile commute. I will get 50-100 alerts in a half hour, mostly on roads that are not near me and that I have no intention of driving on. I have set the radius as low as possible but I still get tons of alerts, some days I don't use waze just so I can listen to talk radio.

I totally agree.

Another vote for route only or disabling feature it causes me to miss turns right after traffic lights occasionally

The only workaround for now is to turn off "download traffic info." This does have other side effects, but that's kinda the definition of a workaround...

I gotta say I too am annoyed at this. There are a few things I just wish to God Waze would fix.

For example turning off event radii would be fantastic. The second pet peeve of mine is the "OK / Passenger" warning when you attempt to type while driving.

The Waze developers should know by now that most of us have the ability of Voice to Text, and in all reality having a message pop up like that actually makes my drive less safe not more.

I asked to Waze about this directly, why I have an alert from 36km from city what I left about half an hour ago while alerts are set by 5km, and they answered that this is by design, so we can just sit and hope that some day it will be redesigned in more reasonable way...

Is the notification from 36km away within 5km of your route? If so, that is by design that the alert radius applies to your route.

Also, if you have popups for groups turned on in Settings, you will get those regardless of distance. Again, by design.
