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. ;)

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. :-(

The day this gets fixed will be a happy day - I've given up reporting this problem.

Annoyances:
1) The Menu button on the bottom right needs to open by 3x3, or consolidate and make it 3x2. There's no reason to have the Report menu open 3x3, and the Menu open as a scroll 3x3.
2) Waze still keeps the notification lights stuck lit up on the Galaxy S2. Slacker and Google Nav both keep the screen on, but the notification lights go off just fine. I don't understand why the Screen Lock feature of Waze is doing this, but no other app does.
3) Change the color scheme of the menu buttons when the map goes to "night mode". I hate having two big bright icons when I'm driving at night. Making them have a white "glow" border would offset a darker icon just fine. (See: http://us.cdn4.123rf.com/168nwm/rulizgi ... border.jpg)


Things I Like:
1) GPS now works every time. I used to have to turn GPS off then back on after I opened Waze as it would stop working for some unknown reason. Every other app worked fine, but that's fixed now yay.
2) The new themes are improved.
3) The layout is much better. It has the same screen space as Google Nav does now, which I definitely like. Plus the top bar is somewhat transparent, so it gives a feel of being a little more open.

Things I'd Like to See Improved / Things stopping me from actually making the switch:
1) Cached routes. I don't know what needs to be done technically, but saving the route would be a huge help. There are times when I lost signal with the last version of Waze, and eventually it would just clear the route until I got signal. I just want it to remember which roads I need to take, I could care less about everything else.
2) Online syncing of favorites. I just want to be able to manage my favorites online and I don't want to have to worry about them not getting saved whenever I uninstall. It should be tied to my account.
3) The Notification area of Waze is a huge waste. It needs to give some kind of useful information, rather than just being a shortcut to taking you back to Waze.

I use Waze in landscape mode and when I receive a call, the phone goes into portrait mode (which is normal). 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.

I think it would be very nice if we could not only post the location of police on our side of the road, but also on the opposite direction. Sometimes we can see things that the other direction cannot see.

Does anyone else agree with this?

Leave facebook and other crazy silly features!

We need:
- Notifications ON the route. Not 20kms away!!
- Much MORE calculated routes. 1-3 is NOT enough in major cities! Especially if they are almost the very same routes!! It doesnt matter if its longer but faster!!
- Better zoom while driving
- Do NOT route me to roads with reported traffic!! Whats the point in reporting if it routes me there??? Avoid them! Or at least give the option!!
- Talking about avoiding. If I KNOW that there's traffic somewhere, let me avoid that route!!

THESE would be great features. Not facebook integration, not foursquare checkin (???!?!), and not the silly icons and points. People use this for DRIVING not for social life. I do know it's a FREE app, but come on - if nearly all the above would be true I and probably a lot of other people would be HAPPY to pay for it! Please give us a usable app which rocks all the others!

Thank you.
