Lock the chosen route
When i choose a route, I want the option to just follow that without change! Sometimes waze changes the route because of allegedly less traffic route, but the reroute takes me longer & farther! Sometimes I just want to stick with the original route! Give us this choice!

would love to see the "lock route" option. Waze automatically changing routes is very annoying especially when I'm on a motorcycle with gloves!

With an option to lock in the planned route in the planning stage. Having an accept or reject icon whilst driving is a extremely high risk with eye off road. With cameras picking up users of phone, large fines and licence loss will occur.

I don’t mind Waze suggesting an alternate route but the only selectable button is “OK’. There should be at a minimum a button to reject the alternate route. When I return home from the lake I always select the route I want to take because it includes a turnpike that is new, has very little traffic and the speed limit is 80 mph as opposed to 70 mph on the interstate. Almost every time Waze changes my route and I have to take my concentration away from driving to messing with Waze. DANGEROUS!

I have a motorcycle and sometimes enjoy riding through vast plains and forests. In this case, after setting my destination, I will manually select a route I know (or hope!) I will enjoy. While riding, Waze will say "Hey, I found another route that will be faster. CHANGING!" and I'm like... whaaaaat?
So I stop, set back the route that I have specifically selected by hand and get back on the road. Again, Waze changes my route. Leave my route alone! I have selected a route for my personal enjoyment and not because I'm in a hurry. Do NOT touch it, I WANT this route!
Please have an option to prevent Waze from optimizing a route or, at the very least ask "Route X will save you Y minutes. Do you wish to change it?" with options "Yes", "No", "Always" and "Never".
Agree because its always rerouting automatically a wrong way everytime gps signal is low. If that option is available we can just follow the original route, i always get lost whenever gps is low specially in cities where there are high rises buildings.
