It flashes every time I go back to the map. Logs are sent 23:01(Swedish local time).
It´s not all that has been translated into Swedish.
Otherwise it is a stable version.
I'm using Samsung Galaxy S7 Android 7.0 Swedish and the latest Waze version.

i fully agree that waze is a social
but why waze doesn't develop its own social?

why i can have only facebook friends and i can't have waze friends?
what is the real meaning of waze groups? what is the benefit or a sense to partecipate??

sorry this is what i can't understand ...

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 :(

disappointed and sad about very many stupid issues already reported (menu that needs to be scrolled, information box opens outside the screen when tap on wazer on map, unvisible "X", too big navigation black boxes that covers the map.. etc etc etc)

+1: if it was my first time to use this app, i wold delete it :(
and actually... if i need to use some option while driving... i prefer not to use it... prefer to park before....

i hope you know what you are doing... and i wish that waze will not finish like apple navigator!

No. There are a maximum of three reminders, the count and distance from the turn are dependent on speed.

Scrolled trough this thread and all of my issues are already reported.
Glad to see dev team working on them and letting users know about progress.
One thing i am confused about - after updating to 3.5 i noticed talks about hands-free reporting and couldn't wait to test it out. Unfortunately i tried everything, but couldn't get it to work.
All i could find about the feature was this: http://tinyurl.com/c9gjmhe
They are using the feature on Galaxy S3.
Is the feature limited to certain phones?
I don't have voice command menu in waze.
Using Samsung Galaxy S2.
