    Fast food: all the options were at the end (Yelp results - default), and the "calculating time off route" never went away for any of them.

    Bank/ATM: same "calculating..." error, although 4Square (default) results came up both at the beginning and end of the route.

    Mall: time off route was calculated for some, but not all. List returned by 4Square was ridiculous (combination of malls, strip centers, individual stores, mobile phone kiosks, etc)

    Convenience store: everything on the list (4Square - default) appeared to be a supermarket. The (24) symbol is misleading, since some might assume it meant that these stores are open 24 hours. They aren't.

Regarding the "calculating time off route" error - please provide me the exact time it happened (if not for this case then next time it happens) so we can debug the problem.

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

When I went to the list of reports on my route, however, all of them were close to the end.

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

When I was the waze monster in this beta it showed the monster for the my waze menu icon. I assumed it would always change to your current mood.

Yeah, I am pretty sure the main menu wazer icon should match the currently selected mood. Although, I've only verified that I can see the happy wazer and purple monster.

Yes, you are right, the main menu wazer icon should match the currently selected mood. However it's not displaying the VIP moods. We will fix that.

I have previously complained about islands not showing in the app. I discovered that their appearance is zoom-level specific. When you are at a very low or high zoom level, the river shows, but for two intermediate zoom levels, the island landmark takes precedence over the river. It also is clear that an "island" landmark needs to match the land background color.

This is in the US, so the lakes are rivers are on a layer of the map we do not have access to in the editor.



The video will be easier to see if you open it in the youtube site or go full-screen, 720p.

Thanks Alan, we'll address that issue.

What do you mean by saying "not private at all"? The message will appear on the map, but only you and the receiver are able to see it.

We are aware of that bug. It's fixed for next version.

"Missing Petrol Station" (or gas if you prefer).

We will include it (probably in the next version) under a new type of map-errors report, along with house numbers, street names, etc. Is there any other map-information that you feel you can easily add from the client?

Same issues here as tedev. Crashes, and will not restart (well, crashes immediately) until a full reboot of the iPhone.

Crashes about 4-5 times on an 150km route (about the same as 3.1+), but the part of not being able to restart it, is really frustrating.

Sent the log files from the help menu, can't get it to automatically send log files (before that, it crashes).

On the iPad there are lots of lay out problems. You'll notice them immediately after installing the app. I'm sure you guys had a look yourselves, right?

Anyway, hope to see an update soon, because this one is hardly usable. I'll revert to an older one as soon as I get home.

How does this work? Also, I can't check in along waypoints along my routes with this functionality? Please bring it back 8-) .

I did a 2 hour 100 mile trip this morning and per performed perfectly apart from the horrible night colour scheme


Weird. What device are you using? Also, where you in areas with limited network connectivity? Did you switch between apps?

Most of my crashes seem to be either when I loose network connectivity (it crashes when it's available again, after a phone call for example) or when I return to Waze after having a look at another application.

iFunBox


From poking around a few forums it seems that most if not all of the apps that allow you to access the filesystem without JB are broken right now.

Can you confirm that iFunbox is working with iOS 6?


Works fine for me.

I noticed the traffic arrows show up misaligned to the road (I noticed this because they were display on a water). It's really hard to see on a 'normal' background though. After zooming it was fine though (before I could make a screenshot).

Probably related to other map rendering errors which have been there since around 3.1.x.
