This beta is really not stable. Yesterday it crashed on me twice in a 30 km drive, which is too much. Never have been able to send my drive, better said, it works, but then Waze closes on me, so session lost and e-mail is not useful any more.
This morning all messages were only partially drawn (upper part only) and it decided to show me (partial) messages for more then two minutes while I was driving at a 100 km/h.

Also the female voice (Dutch) is not loud enough on my HTC Sensation that speaks the street names, while the Dutch male voice is not a problem (no street names).

Another problem is that my HTC Sensation becomes rather hot. Not too hot to touch, but it is hotter then in previous versions. And this also happens when I'm not charging the battery. So I think it is calculating much more then previous versions (don't have the tools to check) and so it is draining my battery.

Also why is there a service (6.3Mb?) left in memory while Waze is not running? What is the need for that?

When GPS is off, Waze does not warn you that GPS is not available. It does this in the Play version.

Again: please do not decide for others... just make possibility to change font size, like small/medium/large.. do not go Iphone way - allow people to customize.

Two days now on Galaxy S2 with original ROM:
1. Street names - not too small (at least for me)
2. Road closed button doesn't seem to do anything
3. Looks like overall better performance, and the phone is not going so hot in car charger-holder
4. Only issue I can see is the text overleaping and camera report overlaps the top bar with next instruction, maybe screen scaling issue
5. Nice job with wobbling and bobbling popups but sorry, don't like it
6. Maybe it's a good idea to make instruction bars and popups transparent - I like to see more

Cheers.

Taking back battery saving: today I had longer route and the phone battery gone completely flat even it was in the charger, which didn't happened before.

My vote is for having all popups close by tapping outside of them.


Plus Wazer details can't be closed with back button when other reports can be. I would like to use back button for that too as it was before.

My feedback regarding the most annoying bugs
  • The wazer info popup will not be visible if the wazer is not at the bottom of the map
  • The "back" button does not close popups any more. It is much harder to touch "X" in every popup which is in different location than "back" button.
  • Regarding the last one, the "Not there" button in speed camera popup is so big that I have multiple times accidentally pressed that one :-(
  • It is possible to mark car parked (with "P" icon) only when reaching destination ie. only with navigation.
  • Duplicate "Pave" tab in "Map issue" report menu.
  • The last one makes the map issue type list very narrow in landscape mode (only two line visible). Would be great to redesign it it avoid scrolling which is very uncomfortable during drive.
  • When adding comment to the report the "Done" button does not work (old issue). You need to close onscreen keyboard with "back" button and then small "Done" or "enter" which is smaller than "Done" button itself.
  • In Landscape mode there are a lot of unused room on top bar where next turn and street name is shown. I suggest to use it for alternative names. These would be really helpful

I think it's much better! ;)

I'm pretty sure, the new small texts looking good. Bit would be nice, when I tap another wazer, the Info panel usually appears out of the screen and have to scroll to see. The years digit still missing from the panels. In the this case I joined only 6 months ago :)
Overally good! On the ETA plate the FB counter a little bit dark!
Thanks!
