When do you think we will get the report for "Vehicule stopped on road" on the client ?
This should be very usefull !

Agreed--could have used that the other night--an 18-wheeler (aka lorry) was stuck in the right light of a divided highway...I ended up just reported it as an debris (traffic was already forming up behind it, so no one was going to be surprised by it...).


Great idea + throw in 'Traffic lights/signals not working' too

My phone (Galaxy Note) spontaneously rebooted in Waze tonight - approx 1830 UK time. When I restarted Waze it decided it had encountered a bug and sent logs.

Edit: I've just replaced the phone's battery as it was not charging properly and suddenly went from 90 to 40% charged (not in Waze) the other day, so this was probably not a Waze problem.

I've done some searching, but haven't been able to find anything recent on this: is there any plan to reduce the amount of screen real estate the directions block takes up on the screen? We lose about 1/3 of the useful screen space in landscape mode, all the time. It's useful when approaching a turn or the destination, but absolutely useless to take all that space when my next turn is 5, 10, 20, 100 miles away. Any way to toggle it so it only shows up when necessary?

I agree. The UI for an app like this is one of the most important pieces. And this is a pretty big thing to ignore, considering it's probably not too hard to fix. Surely a change could be included in an upcoming release, or the ability for a user to select the way the nav info is displayed?

i found that favorites are still able to delete.. if you go to 'navigate' then 'favorites' then the 'blue info icon to the right' of the favorite.. there's a 'remove' button there..
but I think this is referring to navigation history that is unable to delete.. it shows an 'add' button instead..

Correct. You can remove a favorite but not history items. We are aware of it and will fix it.


This is a big problem since I use waze a lot. When is this bug going to be fixed?

Had wife drive around and I was playing around with different menus and options. I still see that that distance to reports when you look at the reports page, the distance still overflows the visual boundary.

When I go to share ride, the bottom of the screen is cutoff and no scrolling to see what is there, expect if overran screen edge to be scrollable, or if not then shrink-to-fit.

I have a bug report to do.

At the Android Client when there a radar ahead, the icon of the radar on the road blinks in blue when its on your route, right? However, it blinks only at the very first time you open the app. The next radar on your route will be alert but it will not blink in blue anymore, unless you quit the app and start it again, then you will see it blink again when there a radar on the route.

Anyone know why this happen? My wife has an iphone and in the IOS app this problem doesn't exist. The radar icon blinks everytime when there's a radar on the route.

Regards.

It may be blocked - by an accident for example, in which case it makes perfect sense. Not sure if you were just being sarcastic.

I have tried to make a report using voice commands - just a simple "heavy traffic." I did this while stopped in traffic with no ambient sound inside my vehicle. I tried speaking at different volumes and speeds, and every single time, the app responded that it "could not hear" me and subsequently canceled the report function. I tried over and over, every way I could think of. Any ideas? My other voice activated apps all work fine.
