    Waze does have built in voice commands (at least it does on Android), but it's turned off by default. Once you enable it you just tap the screen with 3 fingers and it will listen for your command.

    I don't travel without a radar detector. Can't tell you how many tickets have been saved by that thing.

    Be careful though, cops are now using lidar which won't show on a normal scanner

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    It shows...Just harder to pick up. Especially on empty roads.

    Yeah, I tried the waving thing, but I couldn't get it to work. Maybe I just suck at waving??

    Regarding the radio, I always stream music from my phone, so the music is automatically attenuated when Waze (or any other app) wants to talk, or is waiting for voice input. I'll admit that I haven't actually used the voice commands with Waze, but I know it's there. I do use Google Now (like Siri, but.. you know.. better) to send texts and whatnot using voice commands, it would be nice if Waze was integrated into it instead.
