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.

Leaving work last night I started Waze and immediately did a navigate search. It auto-started the home navigation in the background, so ignored my new destination. I canceled the home nav and set the new destination again.
Waze terminated, and asked for a log send when started again, which was done at 18h20 GMT.
It was in full debug mode at the time.

When you come in the Share screnn (see left picture) and you go back to map, the share is activated (see right screen, icon is a shared icon), even if you did nothing.
We need to come again in the share screen and go back again to get a non-share icon.
I think we need an extra button "Share", or only validate the share option when we press on of the 4 buttons.

Text is not well centered (horizontally and vertically), and is truncated at bottom.

Texts still truncated on right side... Missing something like "day, hours, minute, week, ...) !
Very long time this is not good.

Concerning title of the menu, In this particular text, full text is in french "Résultats de la recherche"
Only 3 chars are missing. I think there is the place to put them. You have to "auto-center" the text menu, and not put blank spaces on left of text.

I got this reply earlier in another thread:
The gas layout is correct, in the US it shows the address of the gas station. It hasn't been implemented yet in the international server.
I'm using Samsung Galaxy S6 Android 6.0.1 Swedish and the latest Waze version.

An event popup displays the reporting wazer's icon including his group icon. The same wazer's details popup omits his group icon. Why? (This question is possibly not related to this particular client version.)

Another question is, how can one and the same user be "anonymous" on one popup and properly named on another popup, at the same time (time difference between the two screenshots was just 14 seconds)?

Whether these are client- or routing server-related...

I've reached my route's via (stop) point, its time disappeared from the ETA window, the next displayed turn already belonged to the following violet route, yet the client was still displaying also the rosa route (instead of rerouting me) - possibly because I was snapped to an adjacent segment few (tens of) meters displaced from my stop point.

Shortly prior to reaching another stop point (in the middle of a two-way segment), I've noticed that the violet route actually U-turns at the segment and goes back along the lila route (although it is perfectly possible (and usually faster) to continue straight).

Missing day, hours... etc. I thought that it could be a translation problem but I see that the lang.francais file is correct. Strange. These text are correctly shown in other languages.

Regarding the title - I can imagine that it's not easy to optimize the formating for all languages and screen resolutions. The text is proportional and I am not sure how easy/difficult is to calculate the width in pixels in advance in Android/iOS. It's better and easier to solve such minor problems in translation by an alternate text which fits.
