Just had my first drive. Looks good, picks up location fast (no wait).
Night colors are fine. Good contrast.
The only thing is that things like buttons, speedo meter and controls are still the same color as day colors. They are too bright. That makes the rest of the screen harder to see.

Some problems with the popups in the alerts. No close button, so the risk of disabling a speedcam is too big because of the small cross.

Translation is a community thing. There's a dedicated thread for that in our Dutch forum, where in fact it's already mentioned.
Ah, thanks. Did not know that it was there. I take a look at the thread.

There's still a serious lag problem with speed cams.
Whenever a speed cam notification pops up, 80% of the time Waze hangs, then begins to show that the GPS location is unknown. This lasts probably about 30 seconds. The only solution is to hit 'Close' right away, in which case it will continue showing the GPS location properly after 2-3 seconds.

This is on an HTC Desire.

Why is there still blue on the night mode? It degrades OLED screens prematurely. Please read up on this, blue is the first to crap out. Just make it greyscale.
Closure has been removed... Why?! It was a real game changing feature!!
Pick up still doesn't work. User accepts pickup request, but waze is never notified, so the friends display just shows "waiting for xxx to start driving".
Still some minor UI issues (did you guys even read the previous beta forum?) :-(

Keep getting my stop point cancelled for no reason in this beta. Something has gone wrong.

What Tim and Peter said. If you change that to avoid major hways too, Waze WILL fail in the UK. Especially in London.
Simple solution, have check boxes for each road type instead of trying to customise it for each country. Give the options to the user, don't take it away from them.

Please tell this directly to the developers before they change anything!

Also, please try not to make this elitist by continuing discussions in a forum that is locked off from 99% of the community. Many others that don't have access (and probably should have) have constructive input to give.

Simple answer is to keep it freeway/motorway or give users the option. 1st is best.

Get in touch with Orit and ask to have the string changed for the US translation file for the major highways thing.
