Remove permanent "where to" and "my Waze" fields when phone is horizontal.
I use Waze with my phone in a horizontal/landscape position. All is good if I set a location target and use Waze to guide me to it. But I sometimes I like to see the traffick volume without setting a destination. In this mode, Waze takes up a third of my map display with the "where to" and "my Waze" fields. I should be able to turn those off or they should auto disappear.

Totally agree with this comment, I'll continue to use Sygic as my go to everyday monitoring app as long as MyWaze & Destinations take up a third of the screen.

Please add settings for view type (portable or landscape) thanks of this we can hide this search bar on main screen because it cover 40% of map view in landscape view.
No. The search bar does not "automatically hides after some time when driving without navigation.", no matter how many times you repeat that.
It may be designed to do that, but it isn't doing it, and your insistence that it does is completely dismissing the experience of your customers.
I simply cannot use Waze because of this issue.
Trips that I know well but are a couple of hours long do not all8w adequate time for the bars to "automatically hide" - they never do.
Why have you taken something that was perfectly fine, lovely, and well-functioning and over-engineered, under-thought, and under-tested it into a useless chunk of code that is taking up space on my phone?
Listen to your users.
Neither the "where to" bar nor the My Waze bar are neccesary or useful. At LEAST give us the option for them to always be hidden.

It’s so annoying! Why it just cannot be only map with Alerts on and traffic or police or any stuff important while driving on voice message and timer alart on screen! Please fix it it so annoying and if we want let us pull up the search box and type the destination and that’s it

I wish to be able to hide the “my Waze” bar as it obscures a part of the map, it serves no purpose being there.

Turn the where to bar into an action button or a drop down screen when just having waze running without active navigation, as this bar takes up a lot of room.

Any news here? With Android Auto Waze is totally screwed by this search bar not hiding.

Please implement this change. In my cars screen I have now lost between one third and half of the map now.
Dimitar Andreev commented
The two bars in landscape mode hide HALF of the screen! Please add an option to hide the bars!
Merlin Industrial commented
Just want to view the map whilst driving. The two bars take up half the screen.
Alex Pettit commented
Need option to remove, in landscape mode it makes the map unusable.
Simon Ow commented
Any update on the hiding option of the where to and my waze bar? It auto hides the where to bar on portrait but not on landscape mode. It annoying...

How did You turn on this beta mode?
Stuart B commented
Please do this. Most of the time I know where I'm going and how to get there. They take up real estate for no reason. This is particularly a pain when phone is in landscape. Just have a button to bring up navigation as an option. Waze is about information on the route. Navigation is important, but shouldn't be there all the time which just makes it harder to provide and use alerts.

Especially via cell phone
Ian Barber commented
I found that if you click on the Beta version the 2 bars are then on only half the screen and its a lot better
Raimondas Šapras commented
Still no such option implemented! After more than 2 years there is no any reaction from waze neither Google. Shame...

Darren J commented
