Settings are usually reverted if the version in the app store is updated. For Android at least, not sure about iPhone.
A reinstall will likely have the same effect.

I top out around 550 feet running vzw BB Bold 9650. That's well within clocking range even though it's short of the 1/4 mile most courts uphold. The visual tracking is already been established at those distances.

Trapster would warn at 1 mile radius which was nice.

You can manually changed it tweaking the \Waze\preferences file.

Excellent, thanx a lot for your tip! The distance problem is behind me. Now, Do you know if there is a way to bypass the filter of the warning sound that warn you only if you're faster than speed limit ?
Of Course if this could be corrected by the Wazer Devs.... it would be a very precious option! O:-)

Thanx!

this must be on Android. iPhone does not have this file that I can find anywhere (only other preference files, but I have not decoded which ones would be holding this data.


Is it in km or miles ?

I started a thread about this sort of hidden settings here http://world.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=25140 (Portuguese language...)

Maybe we could start a documentation about this in the International Wiki?
