When you add a stop and you need to return after the stop over a parallel road, you get speed cam warnings on your drive TO the stop for speed cams you won't encounter until you return FROM the stop on the parallel road.

Today, on 4 out of 6 launches of Waze, it reported it was unable to access the SD Card right after launch, and then froze. I was unable to exit out of Waze, even using a program like Advanced Task Killer was unable to kill Waze at that point. I had to reboot.

Didn't matter if it was fresh after a reboot, or if the phone had been on and working for hours.

Looks like I'm the only one seeing this problem, so if it keeps up I'll try uninstalling Waze, nuking the folder, and reinstalling.

  • Nav bar in landscape mode will be thinner in the next version.

It's a great improvement of the application in general but please let me repeat from the previous beta feedbacks that in 2D portrait it's also a problem and the toolbar covers half of the map in front of the car. The previous scheme in 3.2 was much more usefull. Additionaly, when the new "social" toolbar adds on top of it last ~500 m before destination, it's impossible to see the route to destination, especialy in complex net of small streets I was lost and had to shift the map manually while driving.

Proposed solutions
navigation toolbar
* revert to 3.2 style
or at least
* allow to set the transparency level of the toolbar
and/or
* make the toolbar smaller also in (2D?) portrait

social toolbar
* allow to switch it off
(BTW, this toolbar doesn't disappear even if I go many kilometers beyond the original destination...

Hi Perlin.

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.

I think it is not a very hard work to insert a test condition (this test condition already exists on speed).

I think that devs are spending most of their time on social stuffs not so usefull, and do not work on most usefull functionnalities requested for a very long time now.
We can understand your strategy, but you also should understand the needs of the users...

I like this idea. I've always wanted to get an alert if I'm 3~5km/h below the limit. I don't know about others' preference, so I never modify the camera details.
If it is implemented, then I'd like to control how close to the speed limit I am before I get an alert. I don't want to be alerted always. I am satisfied with just a setting in the preferences file.

Recently I was "navigating" home and while I was driving past our local airport, I lost my GPS signal. It returned after I passed the airport.

This can be a setting like for clocks, with 3 digits, in % of the speed !
If setting is 100%, it means limit at real speed (like actual limit)
If setting is 50%, it means half of speed limit.
If setting is 75%, it means 3/4 of speed limit.
If setting is 0%, it means "no alert".
But the value should be entered in "real value", not a drop down list ! (means I can enter 37% i.e)

Just a personal opinion on the new mood icons. I honestly don't like it at all. It just doesn't give a sense of fresh breathe or wanting to change to anything (or really could care less).

I'm sorry for the designer(s) that made these icons but hopefully there will be better updated icons.
