Popup for Ads while Navigating
Great work! I am really digging the revamped UI. I like this app because it actually makes my commutes fun. Waze has access to very rich data, which gives me complete context-awareness.
One thing that I would like to point out is the way in which ads have been implemented. It greys out my entire navigation screen with the top half portion being taken up by the ad itself. Don't you think this is a little dangerous? For visual people like myself who likes to have full view of the map to lead my way, this is very disruptive and can cause disorientation while driving. I think there are more graceful ways of incorporating ads. For example, why not consider having a little pin on the map itself with a small icon gently luring us to the business. Something more like a "byyy the way - since you're in the area- can I kindly offer you some ice cold soda?" method rather than the "BOOM. In your face - here - buy some Cheetos throws Cheetos all over your windshield" method you currently have implemented.
You keep putting advertisement over the exit and over crucial towns that people need to take on the maps you need to move them for the right or left so people can still use the navigation properly
Completely agree. Maddening and dangerous. Stop....Going to Google maps from now on.
While using Waze I find it dangerous that adds pop up on the screen and hide your route. They appear right in the middle of your screen!
This is distracting and can be dangerous to drivers who don’t know where they are going , you have to stress to close add properly and not accidentally click on it to open a page and lose your Waze... imagine on a highway... it’s happened many times to me and i don’t like it and feel stressed and use google maps instead but would really prefer to use Waze.
Please find another way to show your adds but not having them pop in the middle of your screen.
When in landscape mode Ads "save for later" dropdown window cover current speed and maximum speed warning signs.
Why not move it to the right of the screen swapping it with the send a report button?
