When a user has missed 3 or 5 of waze's route suggestions, this should be automatically recognized..

force-learning MY preferred route [for this section]
certain surface streets I know to be faster at certain times of day
waze ought respect my elbow grease ... after which waze may resume yammering
possibly allow me to set a radius around certain favorites wherein waze will not offer advice when i deviate from waze indicated course
Used Waze for short trips. All of the trips were to predestined locations that I have been taking for several years. Wanted to see how well Waze's turn by turn navigation works. When I took a route of my choice, Waze kept on suggesting to take an exit at every exit. I found that this was draining the battery of my phone, since it kept on recalculating at every exit the new route and ETA. A suggestion is to have some configurable number of suggestions that a user can miss for waze to recognize that the user is taking an alternate route and mention that its going into silent mode for some amount of minutes (also configurable) or until user taps for continued route navigation assistance.
