Works fine as most of releases.

Tablet UI still needs more work. Menu is small and needs to be scrolled even there are a lot of room. Font size for gas price entry menu is tiny and almost not usable.

The biggest annoyance is that every audio prompt pauses media player. In previous release I lowered prompts volume and heard guidance when playing podcasts but now every beep and word from Waze pauses podcast. It is very annoying. Please restore the previous behavior or add a config option for that under sound settings menu.

I'm still not happy with tablet UI. A lot of menus and texts are too small to be useful. For instance I almost can't read gas price numbers when my 7" Nexus is sitting on car dashboard.

I resized it specially so that it looks smaller than pixel-by-pixel screenshot. There are a lot of room to use big clear numbers that driver could see without moving all attention to those small numbers.

It can be argued about info popup and menu sizes where some may prefer to see more map and some prefer bigger popup. But in this case there is nothing else on the screen to justify this room saving.

I'm not sure is it a client or server problem but something is wrong here. This part of freeway is in the city where speed limit is 50km/h. Client reported a traffic jam because speed was "only" 130km/h :-)
