Please offer an ad-free version of Waze.
I'm pretty sick of seeing Taco Bells, Ramada Inns, and Smart Water pop up on my map. I'd pay up to $5 for a version of Waze without advertisements.
strange, i did not see yet a single ad in waze ... (from slovakia)

please offer an ad free version I promise everybody would buy it
Waze used to rock. Now it sux. Another great idea destroyed by greed
Yeah, community built maps, infected with ads. Fuck you.
Me too. I rather pay than to be annoyed every 5 minutes or so.
I agree, it won't let me vote for this despite the fact that I have 10 votes remaining, but I would pay good money to remove these f*cking adverts. If not, I shall simply move myself over to google maps (no ads in my country AFAIK) or indeed Apple Maps, however much I disagree with it.
I hate the feeling of a half-screen ad displaying while I am trying to follow directions, requiring me as a single driver to take my eyes off the road and hands off the controls to dismiss - it makes my blood boil.

I am dumping waze right after I get done with writing this. In fact I am getting rid of Google maps as well. I am doing this because of the ads. My smart phone contract cost $80 dollars a month. I don't want your shit ass advertising on my fucking phone. If you can't provide a service without the ads then I won't use the app. Apple offers a navigation service for free. You should offer a paid app that doesn't infect your phone with this in your face bullshit advertising. I am not sure that I can make it any more clear tha advertising inside of my personal texts is deeply offensive and angers me.

It's funny because in Latin America we hardly ever see those ads. I saw a SEAT ad once, but it is almost free of them.

A fantastic idea! I would gladly pay for an add free version. I think it would be wonderful if Waze went with a freemium model.
Exactly what I was thinking about a few days ago. I'd pay for not seeing ads.

I can't believe that this doesn't have more votes. This is my #1 issue with Waze. The ads are incredibly distracting. I also think that users should be able to get an ad-free version either with a purchase or with a certain number of points for Waze map contributions.

for precision you want a non-adware version.
I would purchase such an app
