it is possible to hide speedometer: settings - display - speedometer (checkbox)

I definitely think that it would be much more useful to place report of "camera" under "map issue" option and bring 4Sq back.

Currently many users are unaware of what camera report really does and that causes:
1. Police report's lost - instead of creating proper police report immediately visible to others we got unapproved speed cam in WME. We are loosing very valuable data!
2. Tons of useless speed cams in WME.

Devs, pls think of it.

Edit. Now I found Alan posted the same on previous page

Are people still worrying about Foursquare? Checking into places to get points for no good reason? I lost interest in 4sq about a year ago.

I do see fewer apps working together these days. A troubling sign.

Agreed. It's much less friendly to get to and keeps your eyes off the road longer.
Personally I am unsure why, if they wanted to implement this under the My Friends feature a dedicated button could not be left as well. In landscape mode there would still have been plenty of room for it and the Closures button.
Even if they just wanted to change it to a "Social Check-In" button, rather than a dedicated Foursquare only button, to include Facebook check-in, that would have worked better than burying things where they are now.

That's your opinion.

I stopped using the regular Foursquare app long ago, mostly because i just forgot to use it. When I started using Waze, I started checking-in almost every time I went somewhere . Waze is usually already running on my phone when I arrive somewhere and the Foursquare check-in was so convenient. Now, not so much.

The "horrible implementation" is where the button is now. I very rarely use the route function. The other option is the "check-in" under "My friends > On The Way". Makes no sense to be placed there. I won't stop using Waze because of it. But I don't have to like it.


I rarely used FourSquare until I realized how easy it used to be to check into it using Waze. Thats when my FourSquare use picked up times 1,000! Ill have to check out the new way to do it, but I dont really use the navigation so it sounds like I am going ot have to go through a lot of steps when I could just click out of Waze and into Foursquare and check in and back to Waze even though thats more inconvenient than before.
