This is both a shame and a pitty. Please get this useful feature back in the app.
I absolutely agree with this....it appears that many of the most useful features of Waze have been left by the wayside in favor of menu oversimplification. I'm not sure what drove these changes, but I doubt the "power" users were consulted. As a "Royalty Wazer" with over 100K points, I certainly feel that we have lost a very large part of what made Waze the great nav program that it was. Now it appears to be just another social program with nav thrown in for good measure. I wonder if this was Google's contribution to the fray?!?
Oh well, time to start looking for a new, real navigation program....
