Very frustrating when Waze updates the route with a bunch of turns,including a few difficult left turns, and it results in a time savings of a minute or two. Sometimes it doesnt save any time at all. I suggest an option were you can choose a time savings minimum before waze will take you off your current route. For example I would prefer to stay on my current, more direct route, unless a time savings of 5 min is available then please change my route.

Allow a setting to avoid a toll road if the journey is only x amount quicker (x being defined by the user).

Perhaps the greatest problem with Waze is when the inconvenience of taking a nonstandard route is not proportional to the time savings the new route provides. All too often I’m taken on an insane route in comparison to the normal one just to save two minutes.
I would like to prevent Waze from automatically rerouting (or suggesting an alternative “best route”) unless the new route saves 10 minutes of the total “mainstream” route time.
Perhaps people could choose different thresholds for reroutes.
I hate it when all of a sudden I’m rerouted in traffic on the highway to take the next exit in half a mile and I struggle to get over in bumper-to-bumper traffic just to find out I’m getting off the highway and back on the highway to save 60 seconds.
I am for adding options. Users have different likes and dislikes, some don't mind the rerouting and some do, so there should be an option to turn on and turn off rerouting as a part of settings.
I thought to switch bc I hate google maps auto rerouting. Now I see Waze doing the same big brother tactic. Argh. How about you stop trying to control and force my behavior and show me a modicum of respect. There needs to be an option to disable auto rerouting or at least to default it to no. Make the suggestion and if I ignore it, my route doesnt change.
So far, I find no reason to switch from google maps to Waze. No way to turn off auto rerouting. No easy toggle between overview and Re center. No multipl stops. What a disappointment.

Not a bad idea. But maybe better, or in addition, would be to have a setting that allows the user to set a minimum amount of time desired to be saved by rerouting to automatically avoid rerouting that saves only a minute or whatever. I'm convinced that some reroutes only save 30 seconds or less.

On Android auto, Google maps show times for alternate routes while navigating. It is easier to tell whether another route is about the same time. I know that Waze has a button for routes but it is not as convenient while driving. I realize that displaying other Waze drivers and buttons for reporting issues take up space but it would be helpful for driving.

Twice in the last month I've been taken around towns just to save 1 min off my eta - arguably the town was really busy because everyone else was doing the same (I could see a line of wazers in ahead) and I think it slowed it down.
Unless the main road is completely blocked, I don't want a re-reoute

I agree. I will pick a route and if I so much as back out of my parking spot to the left (when Waze expected me to go right) Waze will automatically reroute me to its preferred, default route even if I had already told it to plot an alternate one. This is especially frustrating because it happens so frequently, and more than once I've been rerouted onto the interstate in rush hour.
Offer option to select an easier driving route (or more familiar) if the time difference is not that significant (ex. <5 or <10 minutes)
הוספת אפשרות להימנע מניתוב דרך מסלול ארוך יותר פיזית אך כזה שחוסך זמן, אלא אם הזמן הנחסך יהיה מעל מספר מסוים של דקות
כדאי שתהיה בחירה של המשתמש בהגדרות לגבי זמן החיסכון שבגינו הוא יעדיף להאריך או לסבך את הדרך.

I have my preferred routes. I am open to using toll roads if I save enough time. For example, the drive to my cottage is 1:35 min. Id like to Waze to suggest a new route if it saves me 15 min or more. Then I would be willing to pay the $10 toll. I don't want the suggestion to save 3 minutes. Let me set the threshold when I initially choose my route.
Many times WAZE suggests you change the route aiming to save some minutes. I would like to have a way to say that I accept changing the route only when the gain will be more than x minutes. I would set 15 minutes, for instance.
This is a great idea. An even further improvement on this would be to set a dollar amount per minute, or per hour, that you're willing to pay to take toll roads.
In Waze there are always up to 3 alternative routes shown - doesn't matter if I have 10 km to go or 500km. This causes the 3 alternative routes to be calculated in random places, not where user needs.
In the scenario where I have a long distance like 500km set it would be very much needed that to be able to check alternative route in specific distance range - for example 3 options to get out from here for the next 30km - as I want to get out of traffic jams in the current city.

Add an option to determine how complex you're willing the routes to be. Some may want a route that is really complex provided it saves time. Other times you don't mind taking an extra minute or two if it avoids a couple turns.
This can be helpful if you're in an area you don't really know, so you'd prefer less turns, or a place where the turns tend to be difficult, like low viability, etc.
When driving Waze will automatically reroute you, even if the new route saves you just 3 minutes.
In the past, you were able to hit "No thanks" when Waze was about to reroute you. Now it just does it automatically, you are not allowed to say no.
Bring back the option to hit "no" to be rerouted!
I am tired of fighting with Waze and having to constantly change my route back to my original route while driving. Even though the new route may be 2 minutes faster, it also has an extra $4 in tolls and an extra 10 miles in length.
I would rather save the money and get there 2 minutes later. Let us decide if we want to reroute!!!!
I wish when Waze suggests a detour, it also mentions how much time will be saved or added to the trip right away so the driver can make an informed decision to take or not take the detour suggested. Many a times we have taken a detour just to realize we barely saved much time but lost the convenience of staying on a highway, close to rest stops.
it would be great if the "travel time saved" was user adjustable.. i.e, don't re-route me if it's going to save less than a minute, or 5 minutes, of travel time..
A setting like, “show alternate route if it saves - (X number of minutes”(X=a selectable number of minutes).
