    When driving a route long enough to justify stops for gas, food, or restrooms, make it so we can take a freeway exit without constantly telling us how to get back on the route.

    Perhaps when the deviation is detected and it's clearly at a freeway exit, it could ask if we are just making an unplanned stop. If so, it could still show us the map/area/gas stations, unlike when we put it to sleep. And if we get a bit turned around and need help getting back, we can just as easily resume directions. As things presently work, it tries to correct us every time we pass through another intersection. This could make those stops easier, especially for stops we routinely make for trips we've done many times before.

    Add an option to disable voice directions until you reach a certain point, presumably near the destination.

    I don't like hearing that I should continue straight where it's obvious, and it interrupts radio, podcasts, etc. If I know most or all of the route, but am using Waze to provide info about objects in the road, police, speed warnings, etc., I'd still like to hear about those. If I deviate from the path (miss a turn), then it can chime in again. But if you know how to get 90% of the way to the destination, but only need directions in the final town, the last few miles, or when one gets off the major highway.

    I will leave details to you, whether one:
    * Selects from a map or list of directions where to start voice again
    * Has some level of mute that one has to manually disable later (level, since one might want to silence all voice directions or just get alerts)
    * The spot where one leaves the last major roadway
    * If going between towns, the spot where one enters the last town
    * Some other approach (the above are just ideas)
    It should be quick and simple, but useful.
