OK. Highlighting toll roads in the client will be enough. You're still going to do that, right?

It doesn't sound like it to me. Were you asking for the work "TOLL" to be in different color other than gray or asking for segments marked as toll to be indicated on the map?

Last beta, both. She said the word will not change color, but as far as I can tell, said nothing about changing the look of the segments, which they've at least acknowledged considering.

Knowing that a 500 km trip involves tolls is useful, but incomplete information. Seeing that one of the route options is tolled for about half the distance, while the other is tolled only for a tenth, is significantly better. Paper maps have never made you guess. I can't recall what my old TomTom showed, but Google maps and Apple maps only show the "this route has tolls" message. I think at one point Google indicated which segments were tolled, but now when I look at the app, it's not there (maybe it was only on their web site).

I love Waze and it would be great if it could use the newly increased screen size to display more area. I thought I'd ask here because I am hoping it is in the beta and I wasn't able to find any specific threads about this and didn't want to start a duplicate if I missed it. Thanks.

Don't know if anyone has tested the new iPhone yet. I sent my UDID to Perlin but she said it will take a few days before they're able to activate it. She didn't use the word "soon" so there is hope.

On iPad today, driving 200 km or so, I saw no huge problems. Rerouting happened quickly every time I deviated from the path and it never crashed. There's still no numerical keyboard for the iPad like there is on the iPhone--why not? And I'm still puzzled by the [P] that shows up at the end.

Yeah, it's just a strip mall parking lot. No parking lot landmarks or anything nearby, and no businesses or anything else called "The Spot".

Don't like it all. Looks like everything is a landmark, too brite.

There wasn't anything wrong with the old night scheme.

Yeah, tonight was the first time I tried it out on the road. No good. I don't like all that light in the car at night. It's distracting.

Bring back the old one, but associate this one with a particular color scheme since some may want to use it.

It happened within 10-15 minutes of the time I made the post.

Regarding Foursquare results- obviously we can't control this provider's results and quality.

But you can select a different default provider, can't you?

We are aware of this issue. It will be handled in the future.

Thank you.

The username of the person making the report, so whoever is fixing it can contact them for more information.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. We are working on fixing the stability issues and the next version will include more fixes for crashes.

In the last beta thread you've raised two important issues that I want to comment on:
  • Toll roads indication: you asked if this can be in a different color, like red, to make it stand out. Well, this is going to stay as it is, as we want that to be more of a note than a warning.
  • Unifying roundabouts: you said that having 2 ways to present a roundabout in the client looks unprofessional. Well, the reason there are different types of roundabouts is the different geometry of the them. When we're able to understand that a direction is "right", "straight" or "left" we use the appropriate signage. When we can't, we count exits.
