Glad to see there's a support group for this topic. This has been slowly driving me crazy for awhile, and finally got around to seeing if there was a solution. I poked around their Uservoice page, and this topic seems to be the closest, and best supported. Go vote!

Looks like Google Maps now includes Waze traffic warnings and hazards in some countries.

I wonder if development on the Waze client will end and shift to google maps.

"Me, too"

Feature Request:
I would also like to turn off the red light camera warnings - emphatically the audio, and the pop-ups, too.

So now that there seem to be even more red light cameras marked an the warning is advanced the popup almost continuously covers 1/4 of the screen making Waze an app I no longer use or keep open.

I have switched to alternating between Google and Apple Maps.

Then the request still stands. There are main roads I pass though that have several marked an all hear is that damn notice going off all the time. I find it very distracting and to be honest if you are blowing though red light often enough that this is a feature it is frightening.

I pretty sure that to waze they are the same as far as the display options. But as Alan states you can't stop the popups from coming.

You cannot stop the popups from coming nor the audio, unless you have Waze muted.


Tapatalk made me do it.

Option to disable red light camera warning

Postby RoundTrip » Tue Mar 12, 2013 12:26 am

I find the red light camera warnings incredibly annoying, yet I see no way to disable them.

Quite often I find the obscure the screen when I am trying to glance and determine if my turn is the next road or not.
