Didn't think there was a difference.

In responding to the thread here I entered waze as the mapping app to route to a location found in the yelp app. As noted there waze started on the search screen for the address of the location found in yelp.
Now every time I start waze, it starts at the search screen for the address I selected in yelp.

Shouldn't be. Did you perhaps do it to stop the "when stopped popups"?

No, hadn't adjusted my settings at all since deleting the beta and installing 3.6 from the Play Store. I was just going through the settings to change the defaults to my tastes and noticed this was unchecked. I've not before intentionally unchecked this selection.

I'm going to report these here even though I was still on 3.5.99.915 this morning as I doubt the issue is corrected in the 3.6 release and the issue has remained through several beta releases.

I continue see no rhyme nor reason to alert popups.
Today I received no alert to for this accident on my route:

If I tap on the accident icon, the popup confirms its on my route. However, because this is not an alert popup there is no way for me to indicate that the accident is no longer there (there was no sign of an accident on the road).

Further down the road the same thing happened again:

On the other hand, I continue to receive alert popups for speed cameras when my speed is not exceeding the limit:

We have an issue here in Colombia. The gas prices are in thousands. For example regular gas price on average is $8400 COP.

In the US the prices are arround 4 or 3 USD.

When Im in a gas station I can't report prices because of format. The app expects prices in units of dollars. Not in thousands of pesos, our currency

Please fix it.

Congratulations. This app helps me a lot to avoid traffic

Greetings from Medellin - Colombia.

Im using Waze on Android. A smartphone Samsung mini 2

Well, I'd like to break the routine...at least a little... ;)

...or to be more precise, I am able to report that I have not encountered any problem so far. Therefore I felt obliged to submit the first positive post in this thread :lol:

I had a clean update from the playstore, settings and favorites all preserved. Since I upgraded to 3.6 I had no crashes also. I also like the enhanced information on the current route. So all you people with crashing troubles don't loose faith...Waze obviously can work too (at least on my GALAXY S+ with Android Gingerbread).

But I have to admit, that I so far found no oportunity to try the road closure, just looked at it. From that I second the motions for more methods to report closures, I find your arguments convincing, it is, as PetervdVeen pointed out, indeed limited to "no entry" situations, and nearly impossible to use for closed ramps or rest areas on the highway.

Also no feedback on GS, we don't have the feature yet.
Greets...and keep on wazing

Wow... nothing but problems with this.
- When I get an inbox message and view it, it gets caught in a loop- can't get back to map
- Quits frequently, which is awful since I don't know when it quits and lose mile points
- When I view Settings from the main screen, then use my phone's back arrow, the map goes black and the app locks. I have to restart my phone (Galaxy S3 Verizon)
