Return the displaying of FB friends on a map in app.
Most users are interested in where their friends are, not unknown people. Need to make FB friends be visible on the map all the time, not just when they are within 1 km. There is an invisible button for Confidentiality to compliance in the application.

I cannot find my friends on Waze!
This program never works
I'd rather this feature be provided similar to Googles Location History reporting does. Let me specify who can see location based on:
= Precise - exactly where I am, typically for g/f, wife, kids
= General - Current functionality with distance restriction, typically for friends
= Blocked - Similar to Invisible but not on a global level
Keep the 'Global' Invisible setting, but let me use the 3 groups above to place people in those groups for default location reporting.
P.S. Bonus points if you provide an option to change the default for a given navigation session. This way I could block things like trips to work locations.
Note: Regardless of this, anyone I provide with an ETA via "Send ETA" should automatically have Precise location access
Yes, I would find it extremely useful both from the social and the security standpoint!
Waze pops up a message to tell me my brother (a Facebook friend) is now driving... great!... or would be if I could see him!
I mean, why tell me he's driving if you won't let me see where he is? What's the point in telling me? There's no button to simply jump to him on the map and if I manually scroll between his place of work and his home (it's normally on his drive home that Waze tells me he is driving) then I can't find him either (but I can see other Wazers). So again, what's the point unless you're going to actually let me see him on the map?

Also there is 2-5 minutes timeout for all users displaying. It must be used for friends, too.
