Hey David,

Don't forget to ask them to change the currency to "¢" if they decide to set the format to "NNN.N"
;-)

Presumably that just affects whether or not a '€' is shown at the bottom right, right?

It affects what currency symbol is displayed at the bottom right.
In UK, the format is "NNN.N" and the currency is "p" instead of "£".
In Ireland, the format should be "NNN.N" and the currency "¢" (eurocent, ALT+0162) instead of "€" I guess..

I never thought of the currency symbol; I'll pass that on to Waze. Thanks!

I'll ask for a lower-case letter 'c' though, not the '¢' symbol, because there is no defined symbol for a euro cent, only the euro symbol itself ('€').

Incidentally, "XXX.X" is indeed the format we asked for, but it took two tries for it to get changed in the first place. It's already the weekend where Waze HQ is, so it'll probably be next week before anything further changes.

I have to agree with you as I cannot find the "official" eurocent symbol! :)

Me too... Maybe they rolled back the previous change prior to making a better fix.

Yeah, there isn't one. I would push for "X.XXX" in the app IFF that was what the petrol stations showed on their signs, but as you know they show cents and decimal fractions of a cent on the signs (XXX.x).

Actually, come to think of it, maybe we don't need a symbol at all in the app, except perhaps for the benefit of travellers from a different country, because everybody knows that prices are in cent. If "123.9" was a euro amount, we'd all need much better paying jobs to be able to afford petrol/diesel! :)

It's very confusing for foreign visitors from the continent as other European fuel prices (except UK/Ireland) are in displayed in N.NNN € in all petrol stations (and Waze) as far as I'm aware of.

Ah - maybe that's why the recent change got formatted as X.XXX instead of XXX.X - perhaps whoever made the change inside Waze saw our request and that Ireland also uses the euro and so just made it the same as other euro-zone countries. That would explain a few things...
