We are now changing the looks of the alerts, so it will be more convenient. The "x" is going to be bigger.

1. When going to share my drive my preferable way of doing this would be via text message, however since the last few updates I haven't been able to. As you can see from the picture below there is no text in the conversation box where there should be. So I have to resort to emailing my drives instead.

2. On the topic of Sharing your Drives, I feel like its a bit hidden in the "Meet Up" menu, I find myself accidentally clicking on the "Share" icon in the menu only to be directly to share the app instead of my drive. I feel as though a name change for the "Meet Up" tile could be a welcomed change. Maybe just make that tile "My Drive", it just feels like "Meet Up" doesn't accurately describe the menu you're getting into.

3. Hazards - In previous versions of waze when a Hazard popped up notifying you in X amount of feet it told you what the hazard was in the text box. I believe it is now just an icon maybe, but I could be wrong when I'm driving I'm not actively looking at icons to know for sure. However if it is there is an icon for say, a car on the side of the road then I feel like there should be text that says Car on Shoulder in X amount of feet (is it there? Thank you). When driving I feel like words sometimes are a bit better than a picture.

4. Hazards - now to completely contradict what I just said I feel like there should be new icons added for hazards. Mainly the weather hazards. I feel like with bad weather ahead an actual icon for the weather reported(ie a fog icon, hail icon, rain icon, and snow icon, maybe add an Ice Icon) should be put on the map so you have a better idea of what you're driving into rather than seeing a hazard icon which could be any number of things on the map.

6. I feel like the Direction Arrows are a bit confusing and need to be updated. A prime example:
While this doesn't show exactly what I'm about to say it helps. when it comes to staying left, or staying right it shouldn't be the same icon as Exiting Left or Right. I feel like the icon should be more like this for an Exit left or right:
This would make it easy to distinguish the action you really need to be taking.

7. The text box displaying your ETA information needs to be resized or the box needs to be bigger to give room for longer trips

Thanks for your suggestions, we're taking them under consideration.
We are also aware of the bugs you've mentioned and working on fixing them.

Still though, it doesn't explain why my icon will often face the wrong direction when I'm stopped at an intersection. It's not technically new behaviour, but it's a lot worse since this update.

Please send logs (in debug mode) from a specific drive it happened on. We'll investigate them.

Avoid toll roads option was never available in Poland. Is it possible you were visiting another country and saw this option?

You could do the same not in navigation mode !

We will consider that.

And I found that the danger was not on my road...

This is an old bug that's related to the fact that the distance is calculated as the crow flies and not by the actual mileage. We're indeed aware of that problematic behavior, but unfortunately I don't know when the fix will be deployed.

Speed_Razer wrote:Waze crashes on me every time I get within about 100 yards of my house. It has done this since the last two updates. After the big update that was the first in a long while I figured it would get sorted out pretty quick, but the new update hit and I still have the issue. When it crashes it is bad enough I have to fully power cycle the phone too.

I thought maybe it was connecting to my wifi and causing a crash during the switchover in data but I disabled wifi and still have the issue. I live in front of a gas station and when I get close enough to see the price to report it I'll crash every time. I now have to shut down waze a half mile from home to avoid the crash. I have waze set to not remember my route, but it apparently is? Only thing I can figure as nothing else is running on the phone, wifi is off, and waze works perfectly all other times for me.
My phone is a Samsung S3, not rooted and running factory image of Android 4.0.4.

Please provide me a permalink of the location where it crashes for you. Does it crashes when you try to search for gas station (in order to update the prices) or just like that, without doing anything?
