Killing Waze Ads On Mobile

Waze is a wonderful tool for commuters to help and alert each other to hazards and road conditions. But, the recent inclusion of ads when you stop are annoying.

I have a rooted Android device, so I decided to do something about it. Waze pulls the ads from:

venues.waze.com

So, I snagged a hosts editor from Google Play and added the host with a dead-end to 127.0.0.1

After adding that, anytime Waze ads are called, it will just kick an error screen and go away.

Better than a Jack In The Box ad IMHO.

  1. When rooted adding a line to hostfile in system/etc/ is easier than installing a uneedeed app 🙂

    Thanks for the tips
