I've found that even with both hands on the phone and all my attention, I often have trouble selecting entry boxes to plug in prices.... This looks like a simple fix and it would greatly enhance the usability of the prices option.

I agree, it's indeed hard to select the price boxes and it actually requires a few taps (not only with chubby fingers..). We'll improve it.

I have one of those on may way home. It's an error in routing algorithm not the client. There used to be an option in the client called "Minimize Turns". It worked, then it was completely ignored then removed. It is supposedly built into the routing algorithm. No, it is not.

Those specific intersections have some reverse connectivity and the named segment of Village View Parkway is not unnamed & below 15m for NA ( 10m for ROTW ) as per suggestions to avoid u-turns.

You can also explicitly set the turn restrictions on this to avoid u-turns if not allowed, as it's just a single sided segment, not a road crossing the dualed section of N Shiloh Rd both sides.

Had a force close and also a frozen client several times when searching for a nearby gas station to report prices. This happened every time when doing:
1 start up the client while on the gas station
2 directly dismiss the popup asking you to report gas prices cause you're near a gas station
3 tap Report / Gas prices. Crash or freeze

Logs sent at 14:25 and 15:28 GMT+1 today. Reproducible.

Does the "Never ask me again" checkbox on the fuel prices popup actually do ANYTHING? Every time that damn popup has appeared, I've ticked the box and then either closed the popup with the X, or left it to time out and close by itself. Every time. In other words, despite having (apparently) done what the UI design indicates is required to tell Waze not to ask me again, Waze keeps on asking me again. And again. And again. Just stop, please...

Something else that crossed my mind during my drive to work this morning - the new angled hazard markers are a welcome change to the old markers for some types of report, but there are times when you need to be able to report a hazard that's applicable to both directions (e.g. the failed traffic lights that I encountered this morning...), so could the my side/other side reporting option be extended to include a "both sides" setting as well?

Selecting this option ("Never ask me again") from the popup doesn't work (we'll fix it!), but if you select it from the settings (Gas Stations & Prices) it will work (won't pop again).

I've sampled numerous screenshots of user info windows. On one piece of hardware, they are being populated with two different text (or font?) sizes just a few seconds apart and upon rotating portrait <-> landscape, the texts are cropped in two different ways (even with the same font size, or possibly of previously being rendered with different font sizes).

In one case I've even got an empty user info popup - possibly the wazer's icon has just disappeared (not among the random set of 20 or 40 wazers anymore), but the client omitted to keep this particular one in-memory (for the already open info window) - sounds rather like a caught exception :roll: instead of correctly cached data - apparently the info's underlying user data is being re-read during the display rotation.
