Map chat do not stay on screen when not sent.
To reproduce :
1) Tap on bottom right button and select Map chat (see arrow 1)
2) Let the countdown reach 0. The unset map chat comes to map screen (see arrow 2)
3) Tap again on bottom right button (see arrow 3)
--> Map chat is deleted !

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:

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.

I'm not sure what caused this but I had no ETA banner on the bottom of the screen.

I sent the logs at round 7:21 AM EST on 1/25/13.

We are aware of this problem (happens on low-resolution devices). Unfortunately it won't be fixed in the near future.

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 have a 5 inch Dell Streak. Like you, I cannot read the small print in the various windows. Presently, Waze is designed for your passenger who is holding his phone in his hand with its screen about 10 inches away. Drivers have their phones mounted on the Dashboard with its screen about 20 inches away. Waze needs to be for us drivers, not our passengers. For now I am a passive user, I can seldom safely send a report. I assume that most of the active users are in fact passengers.
