I also read that Waze can't be used (typing) while driving.....well, that's got to be wrong based on what Colovian wrote and what I experienced.

That should read that the typing part shouldn't be used while driving, it most certainly can be of course. The pop up says "Passenger?" and if you hit yes you can type. Obviously a person driving can lie and say they're a passenger, there's no way for the app to know if you're actually a passenger or not.

Here in Michigan it's illegal to text and drive, you can be pulled over if an officer sees you doing it and cited (civil infraction, just a fine). Doesn't seem to stop too many people (I see people texting and driving every day) but I've entered a few such cites since the law went into effect. I can't say I haven't used the typing feature while driving (though you can use voice-to-text for that feature too, I've done that!) but I generally behave and don't use that feature. If I'm a passenger I use it regularly (to indicate which lane is closed for a construction area for example).
