So far no problems with this beta, I've driven three or four short trips. I also think the main pop up could be larger, but the buttons at the bottom are less used so it's not a huge deal to me. Scaling for various phone resolutions is pretty hard I guess, especially the little qvga phones some people are still stuck with.

Installed over the last beta.
Tried using it on the way home from work.
Took about 5 minutes to catch up to where I was driving (did the deal where it looks like no GPS signal).
Also I tried the Navigate > Categories > Gas Station, and it thought for a moment, then crashed.Same deal as last beta.
Upon restarting Waze again I sent the logs to the server.

Hope this issue is fixed in the final build. :)

Installed over the last beta . . . first run caused my phone to reboot. Second run it locked up at the splash screen and I had to force close. Third run worked. It brought me to the EULA and the intro video that can't play. All of my account info was lost along with all of my bookmarks. It did navigate me home just fine.

Still has the 'sorry no gps' error often when I try to report gas prices.

Still causes a no gps error when the nearing destination announcement plays.

Here's a funny glitch. When I look at my Scoreboard, it says:

Your level: Warrior Wazer
Your rank: 4,166

Then, it shows the row of icons. The middle one is highlighted. But the bar underneath goes past the *next* level. And sure enough, it tells me, "-177 points to next level". Oops!

Another interesting tidbit on this glitch: the algorithm to calculate the width of the "%s points to next level" text must not be expecting a leading negative sign... "level" is cut off on the right, so it actually says "-177 points to next leve" with the last "e" cut in half.

If it helps, the next line is "Your Points: 23,962".

Sorry I don't have a screenshot app to help with a picture, but hopefully this is enough info.

This has been reported often since the first 3.4.99.x beta. At the moment, I don't mind that they look alike, since I only got bronze this week :D ... but the next time I reclaim the gold, I'm gonna be ticked! :P :lol:

Just a clarification on one "fix" posted above, in an effort to prevent whiny replies about it ;):

- Moods (also monster mood is now shown on main menu)
This does not mean that you can select the monster mood from the "Moods" menu; it just means that when you do have the monster mood enabled (through the not-so-secret Easter-egg procedure ;)), the monster will be displayed on the "My Waze" button on the main menu.

Didn't see anything too weird upon installation ... will have more to report after my drive to work tonight. I do like the new "Navigate" button, with the fan-folded map 8-).

haven't been driving with it so far...
installed over .110 - OK

had a crash which I was able to reproduce 3 times. so the scenario:
navigate->categories->gas station->pick any->more->show on map->crash
logs sent around 21:08 GMT+2

menu boxes, both portrait and landscape, are too small and therefore it is need to scroll. get rid of the scrolling in menu, please!

gold and bronze moods have same icon

after starting client, nearby wazer box appeared, when i touched it, it brought me somewhere 6000 km away (map chat told me). maybe just one time error...
[ img ]

wazer's popups still behave different than all other popups (no "X" button, not closing using phone's back button, overlaying of different kind of popups, popups off the screen).
popups overlay:

when posting map chat, window is resizing after keyboard is opened and then after T9 bar appears, but then there are glitches just above the T9 bar:

Looks good. The first thing I try is the configuration menu. What I notice is that in the Screen menu )2D / 3D) and the Modus menu (Auto/ night/day) there is no button in the menu which shows which choice is active. Which looks a little bit strange. Some popups has a check button, but some has not.

Where did the Test color scheme go? Liked that. Is it an idea if you select a scheme that a picture is shown how it looks like. Now I must return to the main screen before I see it.

I could not find the night scheme's as promised in the announcement.

In the Yours account info, it is translated (in Dutch) as "Jou account" That is bad Dutch. It should be "Je account" or "Jouw account".

Like the layout in the share menu. But when I share my my drive I got again that Waze has stopped as in the previous betas. But to my surprise it restarted automatically. Ok, better then nothing. I've send the log files around 21:10 local time.
When I take a look at the shared drive, the screen looks good, but the waze logo is not the monster logo ;-) (not really important, but I'm proud of my monster mode).

In the announcement it is stated that I can choose monster mode. But that is not in the list. Is this because it already active?

Like the layout of the buttons in the main menu. The less needed ones are not in view if there is no need of them. The importans ones (Close down/afsluiten) are there.
