If this helps the developers with the problem already reported for countries where dots are thousand separators (instead of decimal separators, like in the US), this is how the error is shown to me: I just tried to enter some fuel price in Brazil, running Waze 3.5 on iOS 6.0.1.

There is no option to choose commas or dots, and I believe Waze just tried to prevented me to enter "thousands" of $$$ for the fuel prices.

By the way, congratulations on the great software!

Edit: tried entering one price at a time, and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, so it is not related to comma x dots as decimal separators.

How many gas brands should be in the client?
Now, in Russia, gas brands terminate on the "S-С" letter. But there are many others russian letter - Т, У Ф Х, Ц, Ч, Э, Ю, Я

5 times confirming without changing a price is unlikely, 10 times is extremely unlikely to be valid. This could be recognized at the server-side.

So after 5 confirms (in a row) you could get a warning, after 10 confirms (in a row) you could be locked from the gasprice-feature for 24h.

I tried to enter one gas price at a time, as suggested already on this thread, and I was able to update only the regular price on two different places, so the problem is not related to commas x dots at all.

Could it be that for the other prices, Waze rejected my updates because the % change was too large? I also was not able to enter price for a box that had no prices before (ethanol in my case).

Thanks!

How close does the nearest gas station have to be before it appears on the Navigate search? When I try to search for a station to navigate to I receive no results but if I chose to navigate to somewhere else and search for a station to add as a stop on the way I get heaps of results.

Thank you.

How about a function letting you enter a discount on a brand. Ex when you have a bonus card with discount for every gallon.

If you prefer a single brand - you can select that now. Bonuscards seem to be such a rare occurrence that no one seems to have asked for it yet. For now you will have to do the math yourself.

They are quite popular in the US... Some grocery stores even have them where you earn gas discounts by buying your groceries - both at the Supermarket Branded Gas Station and other big name partner Gas Stations
