I know something is definitely funky though because I tried sending several in a row from Waze along with regular texts, and the regulars get through while the Waze ones did not.

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

My comment:

1. Bluish color theme is not clear during night. Road and road name is not clear. Please change to bright color, or provide option to user to select their own color theme

2. Highway with blue color and cyan outline is messy and crowded. Please change to bright and light color with no outline. Blue color for highway is causing the navigation path (purple color) seems invisible and blended.

3. The top horizontal bar which contain distance to next junction, and the junction name is too big. It takes nearly 1/5 of screen when used in landscape (on Galaxy Tab 7 inch). Please move the distance under the navigation arrow, and make junction name to single line, and smaller font. Please give more space to map, compared to text. People using GPS to see the map, not reading the text.

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.

When 3.5 updated, it kept all my favorites, however it kept locking up on launch. So I uninstalled Waze, deleted the Waze folder and reinstalled. After logging in with my screen name, it never prompted me to download my favorites (like it has in the past).

I tried exiting/entering Waze, uninstall/reinstall, reboot in-between, nothing.

Figuring this was a bug in 3.5, I've now installed the beta, 3.5.0.03. 3.5.0.03 did download my favorites from the server.

(If this has already been answered please guide me to the url)

This is related to the overall security of Waze.

I'm unable to find the "My Waze>My Profile>Privacy>Show me as: Anonymous" option in 3.5.
There is the "Hide me completely"/"Stealth Mission" option, is this the new "Drive Anonymous"? or?
If so I find it a problem that the user needs to activate it every time.
It'd be great if it was possible to choose from both the old Anonymous and the new Ninja Stealth Mission.

Keep up the great work! :)

2 problems for me so far.......

Postby SocalToe » Sat Nov 03, 2012 2:42 am

1. Initial driving direction WRONG
2. Last 1-2 minutes of drive missing.

1. Previously waze would assume that if I was on the south side of an east-west street my initial driving direction would be east ........... that would be correct 90% of the time.

Now it assumes I'm starting of in a westerly direction.... .i.e have to do U-turn to start driving ( which isn't always possible)

This is easy to see. Just see what direction your 'car' is pointing when you start app...


2. My 'drive' traces are coming up short and don't show me getting to my destination. I estimate it's the last 1 or 2 minutes.

Is there some 'new' special way to exit waze now? I'm doing what I've always done, which is exiting till it asks if I want to turn off.....

I also have same issue (losing screen rotation after incoming call). Screenshot is not very useful in this case, it's just the screen in portrait mode ;)

I brought this problem (and a similar one) up in a couple of the beta threads for this version, but Waze couldn't reproduce the error on any of the devices that they were using. Maybe I should send them mine when I get a new one, since I've run across several such errors on my phone that they can't reproduce on their devices. ;)
