When launching Waze app during dark times, have app utilize light sensor to start in night mode.
App starts up in day mode during dark hours and doesn't switch until route is planned. Utilize light sensor or time of day to cause it to startup in the appropriate mode for the time/light of day.
Great thinking! The issue you raised has been addressed in a recent redesign. Hope you like it!

Please re add the feature for automatic switching between dark and light mode, this feature is not present anymore in this latest update... It was good to have it automatic for different ambient light conditions

You can actually set this in setting to have dark mode maps all the time.
navigating put the screen in dark mode automatically
It would be very useful if Waze used the sensor of the phone to automatically activate the dark mode, for example in the tunnels
I want Auto to match OS Light / Dark mode (In booth iOS and CarPlay independent).
Currently there is no way to do that. Maybe a new mode “system”?
Use Dark Mode on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
Turn on Dark Mode for a great viewing experience especially in low-light environments.
How to turn on Dark Mode
Go to Settings > Display & Brightness.
Select Dark to turn on Dark Mode.
To turn Dark Mode on or off from Control Center, pull down from the top-right corner of your device, then touch and hold the brightness control . Then tap Dark Mode On or Dark Mode Off.
You can also set Dark Mode to turn on automatically at sunset or at a specific time. Go to Settings > Display & Brightness and select Automatic. Tap Options to set a schedule for Dark Mode.
The day/night mode gets switched automatically as I run the application. Unfortunately, it stays that way during the whole drive. I usually travel 3-3.5 hours, starting in the very early morning or early afternoon, therefore I can see the day/night mode does not get re-evaluated during the drive. I have to turn the app off and restart it to switch to the corresponding mode.
