Feature request

I've seen a few posts about the large amount of wasted space in the black navigation box. I have a suggestion that I would love to see implemented. So in the alternate routes window you see a graphical representation of your route with the traffic and user reports posted. In this black space could you have a thin line with this information and a small icon to show where you are on your route?

Here is what I am talking about...

Re: App crashes on startup

Postby saggitas » Tue Apr 16, 2013 12:09 am

Apologies if I'm going to annoy anyone.

I started experiencing this since this morning. Before today everything was working fine.

The app would load into the map, but whenever I would swipe to start navigation or prompt for my favourite locations (like Home or Work), it will crash (go back to launcher).

So I re-installed the app, and this time, after pressing "Next" at the license agreement, the app would crash again.

Anyone knows what's wrong?

btw, I'm running on ParanoidAndroid 3.15 ROM (28 Mar build) with franco v372 kernel.

This could be helpfull to store the location when quitting Waze, so we can retreive our car easily. And also we could add a note and/or take a photo !
- When quitting Waze, automatic location saving... Only a question "Do you want to take a picture and/or add a note ?" - This could be like a report with a countdown on the "No" answer.
- When starting Waze again, we could have a question like : "Do you need some help to go to your car ?" With a countdown on the "No" answer.

Look at this screenshot from other application. The car location is stored and visible on the map.

Note also Perlin : Take a particular attention to the buttons on the screenshot... They are correctly sized for a standard human ! Bigger enought to be used correctly, and not too large against rest of texts on screen :twisted:

Your last GPS position as points and other info is saved in the 'session' file.

From time to time I have the same issue.
If you check the size of preference file it might be 0 bytes.
If that is true, just replace the preference file by a backup. There is one inside the skins folder by the way.

If you hit the 'back' hard button it should restore view.

Hey!

Just found out it is possible to show the current GPS coordinates.

The setting is available in the 'preference' file.
Code: Select all
GPS.Show coordinates: yes

When I'm navigating somewhere, whenever I reach a point within about a quarter of mile from my destination I get a popup saying that I've lost the GPS signal. Then about a few seconds later it disappears and all is normal with no actual interruption of navigation.

I saw a few other posts on the subject, but they were all posted last year and nothing else current.



True.
I also have the same error.

I found out my 4sq SU request was declined because of checkin through 3rd part apps like waze.
Also rapid fire could be done via the old button.

I am a huge fan of 4sq. I do not miss the old button :-)

Please do not respond to 2-years old topic. The response is irrelevant to version 3.6, which matters here.
