Ditto high res phones like my Droid DNA, which has a 1920x1808 resolution which renders street names almost too tiny to see.

I've been told the developers are aware of this but don't think it's a serious issue. Apparently they all have fantastic vision. :lol:


To illustrate how we get penalized for having high resolution large displays I have photographed three of them side by side displaying same menus.

From left to right Galaxy Tab 7.7, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S2. Fonts on Galaxy Tab 7.7 are not readable when mounted on center console.

If not apps will become terribly slow with occasional freezing and completely locking up the phone if you don't shutdown Waze fast.

Sadly but I have to add another bug.

Sometimes when I want to report a hazard Waze thinks I don't have an internet connection but all others apps do. Phone reports hdspa speed(3g).
Restarting Waze is required to recognize the connection again.

This is not a bug. This is one of the worst flows of Waze. As network connectivity degrades from LTE>4G>3G>2G>EDGE all other apps just patiently wait for their piece of the pie while Waze just stops. All road munching gets lost. All drives in affected areas get lost as well.
As network conditions improve all other apps take advantage while Waze still displays no network connection. Only restart of Waze brings it back.

At least with that one you can go back to List and have them re appear.

Here is one that requires restart of Waze and is absolutely maddening. With setting of "No auto zoom" bring up Routes>Map>Select route. Map center button becomes numb. Map stops following movement and it's stuck in North setting.

Performed clean install. Gas Stations & Prices showed up after restart, Favorites restored.

All previously reported problems still there.
