It's not a compass-heading indicator. It indicates which direction is North.

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.

This morning I was on my way to work, following one of the normal routes. When stopped at a stop light, I received an "Oh, snap!" message without any interaction with the phone.

Problems here:
1. This is a very large popup
2. Despite being an oversized popup and on an iPhone 5, the text still doesn't fit on the screen due to overuse of whitespace and graphics and buttons too large. (How many years do we need to keep harping on about poor use of screen space?)
3. I don't understand "Info" and "Go there" because there's no indication what this popup is about. Why would I "Go there"?

This looks to be from a popup advertisement which failed to get information. As we've mentioned dozens of times before, Waze needs significantly better error handling and needs to stop assuming that nothing will ever go wrong with other parts of the system. This is an example of a popup which should never have come up on the screen in the first place.

Please send me (debug) logs that contains an example.

Not sure why logs are required. This is reproducable 100% of the time and I explained in detail already that Waze gives the "500ft" notification as soon as the distance to the turn goes from .2 to .1 miles. The problem is not enough significant digits or rounding, because the announcement is made at .19 miles, which is 1000ft feet, not 500ft.

In any case logs uploaded at 4:30PM GMT on 2013-01-29. I noted it specifically at (local times) on 2013-01-28 at 5:59PM, 6:05PM, 6:30PM, 6:31PM. However, as noted, it happens without fail, every single time a .1 miles notification comes up at the .19 mile mark.

I can get some results on 6.0.1, but sometimes, those search results have no match to the name being searched for.

It's a "feature" and has been brought up before. When you are one of the top 3, Waze selects that mood for you automatically and must set the monster mood each startup. If you aren't in the top 3, the monster mood sticks.

No, that's different. It popped up while driving. My alerts are still set to 25 miles. When stopped, I still get nothing. This one is unique due to it giving time-to-hazard, not distance. And this isn't a group popup either.

I don't recall seeing this kind of alert before, with time instead of distance. I like it.

iOS and Tapatalk have conspired to screw up this post.

I tested an concur that there is a significant issue with contact searching in 3.5.3. I get hits for which the name matches nothing I entered, and even full name, last and/or first don't produce hits at all. I have 9 entries with the first name 'Dan' and only one was returned.

The results which do work seem to most often be from my work Exchange/Active Sync account. What's also odd and perhaps telling, is that very often, multiple searches of different names always return the same name from my Exchange/Outlook Contacts.
