1. Landscape now works correctly for me if I minimize waze, do something and then fire it back up. It returns to landscape just fine.
2. Next turn bar is thinner, that is great. But I notice an issue when the name of the exit has more than one line of text, see the attached pic. Maybe the text needs to resize itself.
One suggestion for the next turn info when in landscape mode. It might be nice that if we are more than 5 or 10 miles from the turn, that on screen it only displays the direction and the distance to the turn. Then once we get inside the distance window, the full banner presents itself with the exit name. As someone else suggested in a previous post, we don't need to know for 50 miles what the name of the exit is. If you hide it when outside the window, you could always have a feature that when we tap on the arrow, the banner slides out with the turn name for a couple seconds so you can view it.
One more suggestion, this one for the banner that pops up when you reach your stop. In landscape mode it might be nice for that banner to be vertical and locate it on the left side of the screen, instead of across the top.
Short review of some things I tried with new beta. I installed over 3.5 on a skyrocket running a modified stock rom.
