On first launch it initialized for a long time then:

(I could not upload the image to the forum, perhaps related to all the other website issues going on, like unable to upload to the wiki, too.)

I think this has been brought up before: the map issue report page should be the same as other reports, so having the "Later" timed button makes sense both for UI consistency and functionality.

Report menu disappearing on rotation bug still exists. As originally reported in the v3 full release feedback thread on Dec 14.

Appears to be iOS 5-specific. This happens only to the Report menu and not the Main menu.

Landscape mode, tap the Report menu, swipe to the 2nd button set, rotate to portrait. Menu icons disappear.

I can 100% confirm Dave's findings from the .14 feedback thread that Map Issue user-entered notes in the app are not saved when the app is in landscape most. I tested every single error type with text specific to the rotation and ALL of the landscape notes were lost.

ASR hover/wave activation mode needs to be deactivated when the user taps the Main or Report menu until they return to the map. When I am typing a road report, it will often activate in the middle of my typing because the proximity sensor senses my hand near the screen while typing.

Alternate routes never appear when clicking the "Routes" button on the automatic "Are you driving to work?" message. This has happened since the first v3 release and continues today. User should not have to wait 2 minutes for the timeout, then select to drive to work again and then be able to get routes. This should work from the first popup.

No email was sent that I am aware of. I just opened Test Flight from the springboard.

The function for always play sound to speaker works much better. However, if audio is streaming in the background, it still ducks the audio and I don't think it should if the audio is playing over bluetooth.

Another user mentioned that Navigon has modes for streaming or Music (iPod) playback: streaming will get ducked and iPod will get paused. That would be a nice feature to mimic.

In general, though, if Waze has the ability to detect if another app is playing music over bluetooth, and my selection is for "always play sound to speaker" then the audio playing over bluetooth should not be changed if that is possible.

As has been requested previously, if Waze could open a "phone" type of connection to bluetooth, then if my phone is connect to the car stereo, it will be allowed to interrupt whatever music is playing to make the Waze announcements just as if a phone call is coming in. That would also be a nice feature option to be able to give to users.

Another audio bug: when "always send audio to speaker" is selected, and Waze is running in the background, no audio prompts play at all. In my case this morning, the foreground app was the camera app.
