Get rid of the "Take a Photo" popup!

Postby DonRadlauer1 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:24 pm

The "Take Photo" popup has been appearing more and more - often when I'm still far away from my destination. It's super annoying, contributes nothing valuable to the user experience, and constitutes a safety hazard. I suggest the following alternative approaches to fixing the problem, from most to least desirable:

1) Get rid of the "Take Photo" feature entirely - it serves no purpose other than to annoy Waze users.

2) Give us the ability to disable this "feature".

3a) If the popup comes up, give us the chance to clear it - currently, the only way to get rid of it is to close Waze and restart the app, which is unsafe to do while driving.

3b) Have the popup time out and clear itself after an interval has passed with no user action.

4) At the very, very least, fix the timing of when the popup pops up! Waze obviously knows how far away I am from my destination, in terms of both distance and time - so why is it telling me "You're almost there - take a photo!" when I'm still far from my destination?

The fact that this "feature" has been annoying Waze users for years and still hasn't been addressed - in fact, it's gotten worse rather than better - signals contempt for your users!

Still not able to search for gas stations like before.
I have to type it in (in my own language, of course) to find the cheapest pumps when I'm on the road, causing me to be a potentially major traffic hazard.

Same here. "Keep Waze on top" does not work since I upgraded Android to 7.0 on my S7 Edge

Official Feedback Thread: Android v4.20

waze 4.20.0.1
Android 5.1.1 (Samsung phone)

Since the last update, waze is now giving notifications about local traffic, even when I'm not using the app and when I don't have any trips planned. If I'm not using waze and don't have trips planned, then I don't care about local traffic. I don't want to disable all notifications, because when I have a trip planned, they're useful.

Looks like the problem has been resolved in latest 4.21 release.

When a WAZE driving route is shared using other modes (such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook Messenger & etc), the shared driving route is displayed in a web page & the recipient is able to see the real-time driving motion is moving on the driving route.

However, when a drive is shared via the WAZE GPS app itself, the recipient can see the displayed driving route but the real-time driving motion isn't moving on the driving route. This issue needs to be fixed.

Re: Error: Your phone contacts are still loading

I want to add a friend from contact list but everytime I want to do that I see error popup saying:
"Uh-oh! Your phone contacts are still loading. Try again soon."

There's no progressbar to show me if something is really happening, no manual reload option, nothing. Plus there's not even fallback option to enter the phone number manually! Very bad UX!

Any ideas?
Thank you.


Actually, this problem happens since the inception of WAZE GPS app version 4 & the contacts in your phone book can't be fully loaded. Alternatively, you can add your friends via Facebook or Twitter.
