The developers don't read the forums usually. Have you reported this to support using the link at the top of all the Waze webpages?

Bug: Unreadable text in suggested route window(double utf-8)

Postby yozik04 » Tue Oct 23, 2012 1:42 pm

When you launch application then waze suggests you a route to a direction where you usually travel at this time. In this "suggestion" window there is unreadable text after text "Driving to: " ("Еду к:")

The text is double encoded into utf-8
If you encode word "Аня" to utf-8 two times then you will get next text: "Аня". The same you see on the image attached.

Linux/OS X proof =)
$ echo "Аня" > enc.txt
$ iconv -f latin1 -t utf-8 enc.txt

Bug is very old. I just have not had time to report. Maybe half year ago I saw it first time.

This is what I saw there:
The Forum is the place to share your experience with us and with other users, report bugs and generally join in discussions.


But bug is already fixed. Thanks
