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...

As mentioned before- send translation issues to Orit (translations@waze.com).

What popup?

As mentioned before- we are aware of this problem.


TRANSLATION :
--> Already sent to Orit !

POP-UP :
--> See viewtopic.php?f=3&t=30435&start=30#p275847
--> One said it is a very old bug...

RADIUS :
--> Very old bug... Should already be fixed before including FB and other social connections !

When Waze runs in background, it ignores the alerts.
In the past, I was using "ABE radards" available on market.
ABE was able to run in background AND detects alerts !
I think you can do a better job on this :lol:
I also found :
1) All texts are not translated (and not available into transifex) See picture for 1 example
2) Unable to access gas station in France... Is functionnality available and working for France ? See picture
3) Unable to send reports when no network (but still receive pop-up) : Waze should be able to store the report and send it later
4) Have always the same pop-up when starting Waze (that where not existing before .125 beta)
5) Still get reports outside radius defined in settings (this is a boring issue, isn't it ?)
6) When stopped, we get reports opening. No highlight of the attached event on the map for the pop-up so we can't localize the event on the map --> unusable when driving
It would be great if we could have the same localization on the map like for speed camera.
7) When "thanks" a pop-up report, still have a delay to close it. It would be great if it could close immediately the pop-up alert.
8) When "thank" or close a pop-up report, it would be great if Waze could store the information that we close or thank it, so it won't pop-up anymore till we start Waze again.
8) The localization of a speed camera is a blue design on the map. Can it be red ?
(in night mode, blue is not visible on blue background)
9) Can we have a setting for speed camera that permits a TTS voice not depending on the speed ?
(this setting could be : Enable everytime speed camera TTS alerts yes/no)
10) Still have zoom issue when in manual zoom. Drive with zoom in maximum. After a while (20 minutes driving in a city) zoom level has changed ! (still boring since the first day !)

Hope this will be read, understood and applyed ! ;) ;)

Maybe the main menu could have tabs instead of scrolling. ... That is just an idea !

nice update
it seems stable on my XT615
still has the annoying problem of having to manually close the popus for speed traps and traffic light cameras or the navigation hangs..
no matter how good the look is now, having to remove my hand from the steering wheel to close the popups is a unsafe annoyance, therefore I will stick to my 1 star review on play...
its a good job, looks nice, but those bugs are simply unacceptable

Hello Perlin ;)
German Translation

i hope "you are nearing your destination" did make it into TTS now ;)

All about Nickname is mostly not translated.

Sentences didn't make it to the client.
You'll also see where I am, and watch in real time as I arrive
Refresh map of my area (Don't know how much this will be changed in the future or has been changend in the past :evil: )

sentence which is not in transifex
How to edit the map

changed sentences:
Send pick up request
Just double-checking
Email address
See friends, control how you're displayed, and view your inbox, coupons, driving stats, and more.
I want to pick you up. Send me your location with Waze.

...and a few more, please check transifex, thanxs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Other things:

If i tap on the Waze Pick up item in phone's notifications, the screen turns around 180° and no way to change back on Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1

Maybe there was never one over here, but the first time i see "world_5ju34" users on the client-map...

Since the upgrade the waze icon in the Android pull down status bar is almost invisible on my device.
The icon and the bar both are of quite the same bright grey color.
A solution could be a bi-color design that has at least some kind of contrast in itself even if background transparency is used.

Thank You.

The screen was blank several times yesterday morning (10:15 to 11:00 Swedish time) and early this morning (4:35 to 05:00).
I have also had problems with reporting in gasoline prices, as I have not found the gas station as I was next. Logs sent recently (39 files).
I'm using Samsung Galaxy S7 Android 7.0 Swedish and the latest Waze version.
