Bug: The Device volume slider still has no connection to the actual device volume when output to speaker is selected.

Along with the kitchen sink, how about adding the one-way arrows on roads in 3D mode?

I used 3d mode for the first time ever today, and while I liked it, I didn't find it at all useful for troubleshooting purposes from an editors standpoint. I just find that I can see a lot more detail in 2d mode and pick out errors. The lack of one way arrows is a deal killer for 3D.

While we're talking about arrows, are we ever gonna get arrows on the turns themselves? I know it's been a couple years since I've asked...

Re: Strange Parking Lot Labels

What's with the strange locations of the [P] parking lot symbols, and the strange names you see when you click on them?

There's one in the median of the expressway across from my office that says "Poppie's Car" and I saw one last week on the side of the road and tapped on it and it said "Cab 152"...there was a taxi parked there, but it wasn't #152.

I assume these are on some uneditable layer like the gas stations, but where is this info coming from?

I'm not sure if it's the same as the NA server (and with the beta version), but here on INTL (3.5 app store version)I think that the parking lots symbols (the ones that show up when you're nearing your destination) are gathered from Foursquare. They match some of the Foursquare locations that I found, but none of the Waze parking lot landmarks.

BINGO! That's exactly what it is. I just tried to navigate to "Poppie's Car" in Waze and I as I tried each search engine, it didn't find it but when I hit the FourSquare tab, it came up.

However, it can't be found in the actual FourSquare app, so there's no way I can flag it to get rid of it.

I said about this "x" button since the first beta for 3.5 version. Close a pop-up window is always a difficult task on iPhone 4. I can guess how impossible it may be on iPad.

Now, after the release of version 3.5 I have had complaint on forum about that difficult to close pop-ups.

I also have seen on forum complain that traffic pop-us still on screen after you star to move when one stops anywhere after begin a drive. On formers app release, after a stops, when you star to drive again we had no need to close pop-ups. It seems to be made to be difficult to close or impossible on the current release.



Since all those recent beta, finally the "x" button got working well for me. I would like to inform that finally I can close any pop-up (or mute navigation) with just one touch. I'm very pleasured with such correction. Thanks!!!!

It is now always on.

It will be a setting that you'll be able to decide to switch on if they'd like, which is something we'll need to work on in the future.

If you open a message and click on the users real name (not sure if yo get this for non "Friends") it will try and connect to Facebook to message them. The problem is it's asking me to sign into Facebook again ... so much for single sign on!

If you sign in to this screen it takes me to my OWN Facebook page.

Known issue. It will be fixed, but not in the near versions.
