There is no setting to not show popup warnings for anything, including cameras. There is an option for what to display on THE MAP, but there is no setting to turn off the alerts.

Waze is always learning from your driving, though you may need to read the FAQ answer to understand why it may still not take your preferred route. Waze doesn't learn routes, but destinations and it does a really good job knowing where you might be going based on location, day and time of day. The "auto learn" option is actually just mis-named, and we've requested for over a year they just change it to "prompt to route to frequent destinations" which makes more sense and is actually what that feature does.

These popups have always been within the radius of your route, not just your location. That's how it's designed and it works like that just fine. Also, if you have "group popups" turned on in settings, those will popup regardless of distance. Again, by design. Those popups are actually more annoying because you don't need to be stopped for them to pop.

WAZE should not display the location of WAZERS that are clearly off any documented roadway or have been (relatively) stationary for say, more than 15 minutes. Again, this has been mentioned repeatedly in this forum with no response.
User locations are delayed by usually up to at least 5 minutes, so just because you see them one place, doesn't mean they are actually there. This is a privacy feature. I'm not sure about "off any documented roadway" makes a lot of sense because there are often Wazers paving new roads which aren't yet on the map and they would show "off the roadway." There will also be no more than I think 40 Wazers in any given view on the map. If you don't like the Wazers clutter, turn off the Wazers option in the "show on map" settings.
