The option to turn off certain items in map display, like schools, libraries, parks, etc.
As the subject says, it would be nice if we could un-clutter the display by having the ability to turn OFF certain items on the map display like schools, churches, libraries, parks, etc.
Thanks for the suggestion!
As we are currently moving forward with adding this for natural features, we'd like to implement that first, and then check back to see if this is still relevant after that feature is live.

Maybe add controlling Area Places separately from Point Places, that is, turning off the display of Area Places so we can actually work on Point Places without accidentally tapping on the Area Place all the time.
Yes please! There are times when you only want to turn off certain place types. Either you want to turn off large area places because they are in the way, or you want to turn off places (because there are lots) but leave large areas so that the map draws quicker.
If you feel like the area you drive in is cluttered with "area POIs" contact your local editor community and ask them to remove unnecessary ones.
Some editors tend to forget that most of them are not interesting at all for drivers, and most communities also have a list of POI categories that should or shouldn't be areas.
This suggestion box is for Waze Map Editor suggestions. It sounds like a suggestion for the Waze app which is a different suggestion box.
