"Location services" for waze to be on "while using" instead of "always"
In your next update pls could you change "location services" for waze to be on "while using" instead of "always" as it is draining the battery. Apple suggested this will be one big saving on battery life.
Has this problem been fixed yet?

Ops, I didn't mean to flag this idea as inappropriate. :P
But this already exists on iPhone. It's in location services, "only when used".
Please tag this suggestion as such.
Yes I agree with this request from Waze users
Yes, even when I exit Waze it still says it's using my location
I have mine set to while using and it still follows my location. Waste of my battery. I have to go and set itvto never follow me. Real pain
Cannot shut off "Location Services". I'm pretty sure your app does not need my location if I am not using it. I tried turning off in general tab but keeps using it. Killing my battery life. I now put Waze to sleep but what a MAJOR PAIN IN THE ASS!.
PLEASE FIX THIS NEWLY IMPLEMENTED BUG!
Please please please could I only have the Waze notification open on my iPhone 5 ONLY WHILST USING and not when not.
This was already added in one of recent updates!

Drains the battery & stalkerish.
For all retards complaining about that, u just have to switch off in setting of waze (general), and when u will kill app in background it will kill also your gps system.
Thanks me later
Please oh please. We beg you. It's common sense! Change location to only while using! It drives us all mad that we don't have the choice. It's a brilliant app ruined by this. Change it and it's pretty much perfect as can be. We will all thank you.
Until iOS 11 I'll be using Google Maps instead. :(
To everyone commenting there:
In the iOS 11 you will be able to select the "while using" option for every app. Developers won't be able to control this. Apple fixed it for us! :-)
Also when any app will be using GPS in background you will get the blue bar no matter what is the location permission setting.
Cannot keep it on and will have to go back to google maps. sad
I turn this on and off because it burns the battery so bad.
Please fix this before some other app comes along
I will be uninstalling too. 5 users in company and we will all delete it.
I have been a Waze user for several years; I have now uninstalled from 3 devices because of the always on GPS / battery drain problem in IOS. I will not reinstall until this has been changed.

Totally daft. Don't they realise that people won't use until they add this option. Nothing to do with privacy, everything to do with draining the battery
Deleting app until the location services are not "always" on.
