hmm, just tried the new version, havn't been driving but it feels a lot faster for me... boot time etc, might be since I'm connected to the wifi tough.

I've tried this out on a HTC Hero earlier today. The only thing I noticed was a delay of about 30 - 60 seconds on startup before any of the buttons worked on the map (zoom, etc)

Tried to use Waze on my ride home from work today but the app was very laggy and it kept saying seems you gotten of route but i was traveling on the route. This was on my moto droid running the 2.0.1 software, not rooted, not moded.... almost seemed like it needed way to much memory to work right. Please help so i can get back to wazing.

Fixed:
* Scrolling with d-pad
* Network related crashes (when disconnected from network - thanks to gerben)
* Languages downloading problems

If all's well, we'll upload it to the market tomorrow.

Thanks a lot for new bug fixes! But I must ask you again to bring back old-style bottom menu as option. It's very, very, very inconveniently to:
- find and press small and dark hardware 'Menu' button;
- wait until native menu appears (there may be very long delay at that step!);
- try to hit proper menu button;
- try to do something following by that (send road report or something else).
Note that all these steps I must pass while driving a car, instead of looking forward to the road! It's not only inconvenience, but every exessive dialog and every exessive press to the menu button is really dangerous to driver! That's why i stopped sendind road reports at all. :( Do think of usability!

By the way, is there any easy way to make waze client to return to my current position while on the way? Every accidental touch to the map screen makes waze client to stop following my motion and the only way to return to my current position is to pass all that nightmare with menus again and again. If you determined not to bring old-style menu back, maybe you should allow user to chose on-screen buttons to quick access frequently used functions?

Installed on HTC Hero with MoDaCo 3.1 ROM (Android 1.5), feels very smooth (better than previous version). Didn't have any of the lag-on-start problems like others did.

that's a good idea, i'd also like to see some on-screen buttons to which you could assign actions from the menu (shortcuts, anyone?). it would also be helpful to have a toggle in the menu for the screen rotation (portrait / landscape / auto - based on whether it's enabled by the device or not)

yup, in most of those color schemes either some type of road blends in with the background, or two types of roads look the same .. or both. maybe a color picker could get incorporated into the menu? (sorry, i know this isn't the suggestions thread..)
