New iPhone beta version: 1.5.9.4

The new beta version has a big performance improvement which should also improve the battery consumption. You can pick it up from

As usual, we'll be grateful for feedback.

It's actually been like this for a few versions, but I always forgot to say it :oops:

Wait, really? Mine has never lowered the music for a voice prompt, not since the very first version.

That's been happening to me also the entire time, since the first version, or at least since one of the first. It'll usually happen only after recalculating multiple times in a row.

I don't think I've gained a single point since installing 1.5.9.2. My dashboard has been stuck at 303767 points since, and my rank has been steadily falling, from 13 down, now, to 21. I've gone for a couple drives simply to munch and get points. Not sure what the deal is.

Installing 1.5.9.4 now, we'll see how it goes.

Oh, yeah, my point total on the phone dropped from 303k to 224k when I installed this version a couple days ago, but my rank stayed the same. The dashboard seems to be showing the proper totals—unless it's stuck and I didn't notice...

Okay, so with all this talk about "performance improvements", I got excited and switched to 3D mode. And it's usable! And it has this:

A HORIZON! It's... it's so beautiful...

...And apparently, we live on Mars.

See, Phobos and Deimos, right there! :lol:

It'd be nice if the traffic alerts and such (seen in the previous picture) showed up on top of the horizon, though.

Yes, I really dig the bold font, it's much more legible. ETA in landscape mode could be moved a little to the left, though:

As you said, it's unpredictable. I've seen it take a couple days, and I've seen it take a couple weeks.

I'm using waze 1.5.9.2 and now 1.5.9.4 and i'm experience lack of points in dashboard

Look at the picture just to help community and developers.

I really don't know if the problem is for all people or only who use this beta.

One thing is that for the first time points show on the phone are less that on my dashboard...

But i notice better speed in this new beta, and i really love it

I notice that when i want to make a report or when i want to write a new address keyboard input is really slow and slugginesh.... It's cause of memory improve ??? I think it's better before (1.4.0.1) for this things

One great improvement for me is the new font ( better reading) and finally problem solved for recording road... i notice that till now all my journey are in dashboard the days after... Really well done....

When you solve the rank ??? I'm very disappointed for that
