I agree with Diarmuid: Wazers should be able to enter what they see without mental gym => XXX.X (as in UK)

Hey David,

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

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

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.

I'd say it should be pretty difficult to actually know, how many petrol stations there are in Ireland. Especially with the massive closures in recent years due to redevelepment.

Is there anywhere we can find out what the estimated total and the actually mapped figures are ?

Hi David,

I think I updated the spreadsheet just after reading the article on the net, which I linked as a reference.

Updating Gas prices should not require that much know how..

It failed for me 99% of them on android
regardless what I tried

resulting in an uninformative "Uh Oh"

surely it cannot be diffucult for the app to access X.XX for diesel , petrol
and the brand doesnt really matter as input.

People/Drivers gravitate towards price ... that for me is the only differentiator..

The app will, if it thinks you are within the petrol stations, show a pop up asking if you are at a petrol station and do you want to update prices. This feature does work, albeit, intermittently, well up here in the north anyway.

I prefer to leave the road name blank for gas stations but do like the [P] for car parks as it shows up very clearly. I think waze pulls car park details from somewhere else too and displays something similar but not 100% on that.
