I have to agree with wlau. I like most of the recent enhancements except for the change with "Favorites" and "History". The "Favorites" are one click deeper, which doesn't sound like much, but general UI design tries to reduce the number of clicks to get to commonly used features. My "Favorites" by definition are commonly used.

Does WAZE research actually show that people pick addresses from history more often than they do from favorites?

With regards to "History", could there be a way to purge all history instead of having to go through them one by one?

Thanks!

Was able to find another 2 examples of this behaviour:

Image
Says "Catherine Av" when it should say "Stephensons Rd"

Image
"Says "Elstone Ct" when it should say "Keilor Rd"

Looks to me like Waze gets the name from the intersecting side street of where the traffic jam begins instead of the road actually being travelled on.

2 issues I've noticed on 3.5.3 with iOS6.0.1

1) When driving and it finds a better route, it has the new ETA and old ETA values reversed. The status bar on the bottom of the screen shows the new ETA and the popup window shows the old ETA, with the tag that says 'new ETA'.

2) When choosing a destination, I can find the location and it picks a route. The window that displays with the mileage and ETA, along with the 'Go' button will freeze. The countdown timer on the 'Go' button doesn't move and it will show the spinning Waze icon in the center of the screen. I have to hit the home button to leave the app, then when I restart Waze it will crash, then I can restart again successfully.

Debug logs for both of these issues have been submitted.

I use WAZE for more than 2 years now, and 3.5.3 causes me issues on my iPhone 4.
Most of the time I use it in my car, connected with USB to my radio system in order to have both music and navigation voice on my sound system.

I have noticed that with 3.5.3, WAZE has became very slow and screen buttons are not reactive when navigation is on : I click, then the icons box opens around 20 sec after.
=> very difficult to warn when traffic jam, accident, ...
=> to stop the application, it takes a long ... long time !!
=> boxes have a strange size since this upgrade
=> switching from landscape to portrait causes crazy movements for the screen button

Facebook connection is strange : I can see that I am connected, but neither my picture profile appears nor my friends !
I have disconnected, then connected again and the issue is still present.

I have noticed that WAZE lags more when my iPhone is connected to my radio, than when it is not.

I am a real fan of WAZE and contribute to promote it around me, so that's a pity for me not to be able to use it as I did it previously and to demonstrate it to convince others ;)

Fortunately, I had 3.5.1 in my trash, so I put it back in my iPhone and it really work better.
Then I am waiting for next update to come.

I have seen this happen on Android as well... Automatic traffic reports at this segments get named with the name of this road.

I have an iPhone 4 with iOS 6.1, and I'm noticing several weird behaviours with this Waze version:
1) Sometimes Waze won't speak at all, although the volume is on and there's nothing muted. I have to kill the app and restart it several times before it starts speaking again
2) When pressing the "share your route" button (I don't know the exact English translation), if my mobile is currently searching for network, waze freezes with the "please wait" alert, and the spinning wheel. It remains so even after the phone is connected to the 3G network. I have to manually kill the app and restart it, in order to clear the screen form the pop-up.

Confirmed this happens in the current iOS beta as well. I will submit this as a bug.

Are you also aware about the no report issue?
This issue made Waze less usable when driving into cities.
Please give us a feedback.
