All the basic functionality is working fine. I got facebook and foursquare connected with no issues.

On facebook connect: if it isn't connected yet, and you select Friends from the Main menu, you are presented with a screen to connect to facebook. Once this is done and get back to this "page" it says "Disconnect from facebook" but this window should be showing my friends list. I say this because if you go back to the Main menu, then tap Friends again, the facebook friends list comes up. The foursquare connect correctly handles this when you tap Check-in from the main menu and haven't yet connected to foursquare, when you get back to the same "page" as for facebook connect, foursquare has refreshed with the location details for check-in.

Audio issue 1: Device volume slider in Sound menu still does not reflect the actual device volume and the only way to adjust it is while Waze is playing a sound, using the physical buttons. Or, you can exit and load up an app like Music to adjust the sound volume, then go back into Waze.

I stopped to wash my car on the way to work and left Waze running. I did this to see if it would "time-out" and exit. It didn't, probably because I didn't sleep the phone and left Waze running in the foreground. That's expected behavior, then.

Audio issue 2: After being stopped at the car wash for 20 minutes, when I drove away, Waze would not play any sound at all. No hazard alerts, red light cameras, TTS, nothing. I am not sure which fixed it, but I adjusted various sound settings, and then put Waze in the background. When I brought it back, reset my sound settings to where I wanted them, sound came back. (I didn't have to Shut Off Waze, which was good.) Logs were uploaded around 2:15PM GMT.

The Parked pin still snaps to a segment, which, for large parking lots correctly mapped without all aisles, doesn't really do a whole lot of good. It either needs to not snap, or we need to know if parking lot setup in Waze needs to change.

Auto-zoom issue: the previous beta autozoom by distance showed all roads even at minimum zoom and it was great. It appears this setting has changed again because the streets disappear at min zoom.

As with the previous beta, I dislike the night scheme and find it too hard to read/see. I can't see streets at all most of the time.

I didn't have tweeetar or foresqwear set up on the released version before, but I did do an overlay of beta onto the production. I will try deleting the beta, redownloading, and connecting them "from scratch."

iOS Beta 3.4.99.19 Feedback thread

I had no problems connecting all social services after deleting and reinstalling the beta.

BUT!!!

The first time I reinstalled, instead of choosing "other" to log in to Waze, I chose facebook. While Waze was still then able to associate my fb->Waze "AlanOfTheBerg" account, it did not restore my favorites as it always has with every fresh install of Waze, beta or release, I have ever done.

And now, despite having reinstalled the beta fresh, and using my Waze account to log in, my favorites are still not coming from the server and appear to have been permanently deleted. Me sad.

I did the same with the same poor results. You should be able to copy the file or data in the file from the iPad.

Perlin, are my favorites totally gone?

No, of course not, they are saved on the server. I wasn't aware of a bug causing them to not being restored (otherwise I'd write that), but when we fix it, your favorites will be restored once again.

Perlin, deleting the beta and installing the current app store version also does not load favorites.

It did when I did it ... I can try again to confirm if you like as I don't have that many, I add and delete them a lot as my work tends to have a week at a site then I move on.

I have loaded the app store version twice now, and neither time did my favorites get loaded.

Mine, too. I re-installed the beta and it loaded my favorites. Though I had to reboot after deleting the app, which may have been the important difference.

BUG: Removing a favorite from the favorite detail info screen returns the user to the Navigate menu instead of the previously-visited Favorites list.

Steps:
  1. Go to Navigate.
  2. Tap on Favorites.
  3. Tap on a favorite arrow to bring up details.
  4. Tap remove.

What happens:
The favorite is deleted and you are returned to the Navigate screen.

What should happen:
The favorite is deleted and you are returned to the Favorites list. (To get back to the list of Favorites, which was the screen the user was previously on, you have to tap Favorites again.)

BUG: Voice Commands, if already enabled, still bring up the "would you like to enable?" alert.

Steps:
  1. Install Waze fresh.
  2. Login/set up as normal.
  3. Go to Settings->Voice Commands
  4. Enable Voice Commands
  5. Set Activation to Hover & 3 fingers (if not already set to that)
  6. Exit Settings
  7. Hover hand to activate proximity sensor

What happens:
The "Drive Safe: passing your hand over the screen activates voice commands. [Later] [Enable]" alert box appears.

What should happen:
Waze should go directly into Voice Command mode. It has already been enabled and should not prompt the user.

I think this has been brought up, but I find I run into it more and more: the distance at which a goodie/candy will be "eaten" is smaller in the beta version than the current released app version. There is an intersection where a candy almost always appears for me (editing bonus). It is an intersection that isn't extremely wide, but enough such that when I drive through it, unless I steer much closer to the center of the intersection instead of the right-turn lane area, I will not pick up the candy. The same intersection with the released version never fails to pick up the candy at the same spot.
