I've tried to install it from Play. There is written version 3.6 and the date is correct. But when I install the program, it installs the old version 3.5.0.0

Then something is weird. I've tried for 3 times to install. I always clean install Waze (uninstall, delete waze folder from SD, install, reboot, run). I will wait few hours perhaps it's something with Play.

I guess you can't close that one because you're already on it. It's weird to report that a road is closed but you drive on it :) Perhaps the gps position was not very accurate and in fact you're behind that junction. My guess ...

How come on Play the version is still 3.6.0.0 but the update date is set to 6 March? This version number was released on 27 Feb and I saw no update news about a new version. What am I missing?

For few weeks now I observed that on Sundays I can't make any route. I just receive the error with Routing Error Timout. I understand that on Sundays that might be some maintenance jobs but it's not normal that I can't use the routing feature on Sundays. That's one day that I almost make some roadtrips and Waze isn't helping me so much with this. The problem is that the routing isn't made by the client either. I thought that if there is some network routing error Waze will switch to it's internal routing feature but it doesn't so.

I tried that on 3G network with full coverage and even tried with my Wi-Fi at home before leaving, with the same results: error timeout on Sundays. How can I manually switch to internal routing feature if I see that the routing online is not working?

Why not just use the internal routing system if the online one fails ? Eventually with a notice that is using internal routing system.

I swear 3.6 is trying to send me insane - every time I'd like to be able to rotate the map view to an arbitrary angle, the two-finger-twist gesture resolutely refuses to do anything other than occasionally zoom in or out. Yet when I couldn't care less what way up the map is pointing and just want to zoom, the slightest rotation of my fingers as I do the pinch-zoom gesture sends the map twirling around the screen like a ballerina on acid. What gives?

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?

A lot of crashes with this version on Sony Xperia Pro. (Android 4.0.4)
The application often shuts down for no reason...
Sometimes is when I open the physical keyboard.
