- Next turn bar is way to big in landscape view. It overlaps the north up toggle button partially, or totally if there is a status message.
- after updating gas prices, the text for the 'send' button is still visible behind the X to close the window.
After going through the 13 pages of threads you're the only one that mentioned the extremely obtrusive navigation bar in landscape mode! It is so big and unbearable that it isn't even worth putting in a route...then to top it off, the bar that drops down at the end of the route, leaves little to anything left. Enjoy the features and the thoughts to change, but landscape needs some love too.
As far as text overlays, I think everyone has mentioned the bulk of them, there is one that I didn't see mentioned. In the reports area, the distance to the report is outside of the frame, like the font size is too big and goes over the left boundary line. I wish I could take screen shots with my phone more easily, I guess I'll have to figure that out quick like.
The other issue is what someone mentioned, using Waze and having phone on charger, so much is being used that phone gets hot and doesn't charge much at all, if at any at all.
I have this continued issue, that it seems if there is a network switch while driving from one tower coverage to another, that my GPS remains active but my speed shows 0 mph and the car still moves a long the map. The accuracy in this version is almost unreliable. It could be related to background sync going on with the phone too. It just seems most likely every time I go more rural but still have network access, and I am being handed off to another cell tower.
I had one serious issue that required me to completely reboot the phone. I submitted logs too. But I started the app, it gave the splash screen and then I had a view of the map and it seemed like it froze, no other actions were going on. I went to home screen and back hoping it was a processing problem. Still not working. I went to manage apps to fore stop at least two times, it reinitialized each time, but still got stuck just at a map and all other functions were dead. I had to reboot phone and then it worked correctly. I enjoyed the other market version and while I enjoy the beta, it is so unstable for me to use at this point, that I'll have to revert to market version. Looking forward to next beta!
I like the reimaging a bit of the Wazer moods but some were either not complete at the time and the squiggly line for LOL I hope isn't the LOL.
