New iPhone Beta Version 1.8.99.8

Postby The Fej » Wed May 19, 2010 10:18 pm

A preliminary version with some items from the upcoming 1.9 release for beta testers included in the beta group:
Includes mainly bug corrections (crash fixes as well), but also map color ehnahcements, additional moods and the ability to clear the map tiles cache to enable loading new ones.

[Updated: 24/05/2010 15:02]: http://tiny.cc/8t1kf
- Fixed auto night mode
- Fixed forced navigation although user selected close
- The above should also fix the route error message due to > 200 km distance

Your input is appreciated

Wow... What can I say, the biggest update since I started using Waze?

- Performance increment, very very noticable!
- Very nice graphics, much better! No more blended together roads! Labeling is much better.
- Ability to turn off the road goodies, thank you!
- Ability to force a refresh of the map tiles - much appreciated! (Does not seem to work for me though - what area does it refresh, maybe mine is too big?).
- Mood icon update :).
- iPad support - too bad I don't have mine yet..

Very nice, I can only hope my iPhone reboot problems are gone now, I guess I'll find out soon enough :twisted: .

This version does not start on my phone. It shows the waze startup screen for 10 or 20 seconds, then closes.

Running it again has the same result.

When attempting to access the options settings, sometimes it won't open, sometimes it will. Restarting 99.99% of the time fixes it.

What is data compression, is it enabled?
Road Goodies off, thank you.
Refresh map tiles seems to require a restart of the app

I can confirm this one.

After switching, it won't be effective immediately though, it requires a restart of the app.

Oddly, when I start the new beta today, it no longer dies on startup. Maybe something was fixed on the server side?

So far, I am unable to get a saved location to generate a route this morning.

Update: http://tiny.cc/9mz4k
- Fixed tiles refresh
- Less memory allocation at launch (affects 3G devices which have less memory), should prevent app halt/crash during startup

New bug (not there/reproducable with 1.8.0.2):

When the auto-suggested route dialog pops up, and you dismiss it, it starts navigating towards the auto-suggested destination with a slight delay anyway (even when you selected another destination).

The problem I reported was on a 3Gs, sorry I did not include that.

I suspect it was a server side problem. The startup screen came up, but without the message in the upper part of the screen about 'waze wishes you...'. The next morning, this screen came up, and then the 'downloading language pack' message. I suspect it crashed not being able to connect or retrieve the language pack?

Routing starting working shortly after I posted the problem this morning, and is mostly working this evening.

I'll try the updated beta.
