AFAIK this is all by design. Not bugs.

Then it's a faulty design. What was wrong with the two page indicator at the bottom of the icon screen indicating a need to swipe to the right to go to the second page of buttons. The prior method was a far cleaner and more sensible format for when the button count exceeded what the screen can display.


This. One hundred times this. I have a Galaxy S3 and the last thing I need is to scroll the menu when there is PLENTY OF SCREEN SPACE remaining.

Secondly, I dislike the fact that the X button to close the pop ups is tiny and tucked away in the corner of the pop-up.

Finally, it's difficult to make out the little number next to the replies or thanks in the pop-up.

As far as in-car usability, we've taken a step back with this version.

What is the point of having beta testers if you're going to ignore their feedback? Unbelievable.

I'm in the UK, and our default should be Miles I'd say, but really, I'd rather it just saved my settings.

I've raised this with the team for every release and every beta release for the past 2 years. :-(

I agree that this version is reporting lost network in locations where it hasn't before and when the phone itself is indicating that the network is still connected and other apps are still receiving data.

Where are you located? (US/Europe/etc.)

You are right and we are aware of that. It's going to be fixed in one of the upcoming versions.

Waze client (beta and official) offers me strange routing to some destinations. I know about particularly route that it has length of about 270km optimal. If I check routing in live map it's something similar, but if I'm trying to navigate in client it gives me over 300km routes. And what's strange, when I'm trying to navigate with data connection off, waze calculates pretty good route, about 275km, but when I turn on internet it automatically navigates me via long, over 300km route, for which eta is over 4 hours instead of previous 3.5h.
