lock screen orientation
My screen is constantly flipping and tumbling while I'm on the move, making the visual map virtually useless. A simple option to lock orientation in the app would solve this.
Hi, I'm a grab food rider. Waze is my friend and helper. When raining, it's difficult because the water keep touching screen. So, I hope Waze team can create new features where user can lock the screen while using Waze. That's mean maybe there's a button to lock the screen so while using Waze user can't zoom, go to setting or go to other app unless they turn off the lock button. That's just an example. Hope you guys can take action from my feedback. Thank you love you
Would it be possible to make the iphone lockable and use waze from the lock screen, in the uk alot of criminals target mopeds with the phone on the stand which they could simply pull off and find the phone unlocked.
I use waze while riding my motorcycle so I just hope there is a screen/touch lock feature because when it rains the touch screen gets sensitive and its having ghost touch that changes the destination randomly or sometimes its stopping my navigation. Having this kind of touchscreen lock/unlock feature would greatly help motorcycle riders specially during rainy season.

Lock the application screen rotation is very important sl I will send a mail to Waze.
And to anyone saying this is not a Waze issue have absolutely zero idea what they are talking about .. unless in their mind everyone should be good with using Waze in portrait mode (and in this case they know even less of what they are talking about).
And since a picture is worth a thousand words here’s a link that makes it clearer what some motorcycle people have to deal with (NOTE: portrait mode is not an option in my case considering the phone location on my motorcycle handle and physical limitations).
Same thing with when taking curves on a motorcycle. Right now the only option is to stop on the road side and reseat the phone to bring the correct screen orientation back. The screen orientation switching while riding is a real distraction.
Those saying this isn't a Waze problem and to use the native phone option, iPhones cannot lock landscape. On my motorcycle, I use Waze in landscape and it is constantly flipping on me. Other iPhone satnav apps include this feature.
I use Waze on my motorcycle and screen rotates when leaning the bike to turn. Native phone control does not prevent waze to turn the screen.
+1000. One of the biggest missing features in Waze, IMHO. Having to always manually enable native lock orientation when running Waze and disable it when not using Waze is annoying (pretty much the only time I switch the toggle is for Waze). When a phone lies flat, car motion can easily change the orientation. I like using landscape for pics, videos, etc., but I never want Waze in landscape.
A simple in-app setting to select a preferred orientation (default to use device orientation) would take a few lines of code, would help those of us who don't want Waze to change orientation and are tired of always having to manually toggle native orientation lock for Waze to make up for this missing feature, and would not bother anyone.

Disable this in you phone, plus it sounds like your phone is overly sensitive in the first place, not a Waze Problem.
a simpler option would be to familiarize yourself with phone native features or grabbing a simple app with only this functionality
