The icons on the bottom corners are both blank. The main menu is showing only the top two rows and I have to scroll to the third row. The report menu is showing all three rows as normal.
Other than these issues it seems stable. I'm using a Droid Bionic with CM9.

In my Motorola Milestone 2, the Waze crashes when opening, in logo screen, since 3.5 version update.

I'm seeing the same behavior as BzLtYr, although I'm on a Galaxy S II (Sprint). I was attributing it to my bluetooth interface (which I still suspect), but in last two days my device has rebooted spontaneously two times. Wish I could find a log file on the device to troubleshoot the cause.

Otherwise, I've found the speedtrap, breakdown, weather, and traffic alerts to be spot on. What I like is overtaking a Waze icon, looking over and seeing another Waze user chugging along the same route, on the same journey. Nice.

D'oh! I preferred the new one! Ah well.

We (I say "we" because we are many users) would like the possibility to get a TTS alert on speed camera EVEN if we are below the speed limit.
This could be enabled / disabled by a setting.
Actually, some of area managers use to put the speed limit to 10 km/h on speed cameras, this permits to get a TTS alert for everyone.

We're working on a fix regarding the speed cam and we'll try to incorporate the change you're asked for.

Does that include the KPH/MPH conversion bug?

At the end of the call, Waze returns well in the foreground, but in portrait mode! Unable to switch to landscape mode even orienting the phone differently. I must have quit the application and restart Waze.

Known issue - hopefully fixed in an upcoming patch (No ETA)

I'm getting the same thing on mine (with the orientation not returning to landscape after coming back to Waze).

Both of these have been acknowledged and will hopefully be fixed in a patch (No ETA)

This way the shut-down button is always in the same place, users (especially newbie) won't be exposed to too many buttons (and get confused) and the less important buttons will stay hidden.


but you understant that when the phone is on its support on windscreen (about 30 cm from me), when i running 130 km/h on a highspeed road and i understand what my day-mode is too bright for the evening with black thunderstorm's clouds around, and i urgently need to switch manually to night mode (or in any other case to have any other neccessity to go to menu), i can't do this?

If you're driving so fast that a couple of taps would put your safety at risk then I'd suggest you're driving too fast for a single tap too.


indeed..to tap and to scroll there is a big difference

and it's just really stupid when you need to scroll the small menu box while you have all the possibilities to get it big and fit the screen :([/quote]
As Perlin described above it's for consistency reasons.
