I like the new centercode page on ios, it isn't quite so easy to work out how to get the beta though...

I believe you now - or, at least, I believe that you were able to see runways and railways in the client :)

When I looked with my client locally, up at Belfast and across at York, I didn't see a single railway line :(

Good news everybody: as you may already have noticed, road shields have started showing up here this morning for motorways, N- roads and R- roads.

Timbones: thank you for arranging this with Waze HQ!

Ah good. I don't seem to be able to see them from here.

Are they to your liking?

Oddly, I wasn't able to see the UK road shields either when I tried to see what they looked on my phone from here.

The shields here only started to show up yesterday when new tiles were downloaded.

Oh yes! I wasn't expecting the little motorway symbol on the shields for motorways; this is a nice touch.

My only complaint (if you can call it that :) ) is with the shields for N- roads, which should have a green background with yellow text (Google Maps seems to have it right though). In Waze they look like a teal or turquoise background with white text.

This photo from Wikipedia or this one gives a good idea of what the colour should be like for N- road shields.

You get chopsticks? No fair!

Can you post a screenshot showing M and N roads, and I'll see if I can get them to tweak the colours...

Yep; here we go - the N31 here shows the N-road shield:

Is there anything I need to refresh to see the shields, my maps still don't have them.
