Sv: Android beta 3.5.1.3 feedback thread

Postby SwedishBadger » Fri Nov 23, 2012 11:55 pm

Waze told me that I had reached my destination after 300 meters then recalculated after 100 meters again. Had 3 or 4 km more to go before I was at my destination . That was when I left work.

Went in to the city half an hour after getting home, picked destination from map and hit navigate and put in reverse just then I had reached my destination again! Drove about 100 meters and it recalculated ok again.. First time I experienced that problem.

Navigation search for 2##2 should toggle it.

If I start driving before sunrise (around 6.30am), it will switch from night mode to day mode at approximately when the sun rises (around 6.45am). But if I start driving between 6.45am to 7am, even though it is already after sunrise, it is stay in night mode, all the way until I end Navigation. I left it on all the way till 8.30am, and it still refused to switch to day mode.

If I start driving before sunset (around 7pm), it will switch from day to night mode when the sun sets (around 7.15pm). But if I start driving between 7.15pm to 7.30pm, even though it is already in the evening and the street lights are on, it will stay in day mode all the way. 8pm, and it was still in day mode.


Waze uses the light sensor at launch to decide on day or night mode, after that it stops looking.

Umm...no it doesn't. It uses the time from the GPS signal to determine if it has passed sunrise or sunset.

I don't think so..
If I start waze at night it stays at day-modus until it finds a gps fix.
It NEVER started in night-modus.


Ok then I was wrong but the problem is here already for a far too long time. Atm as it is the automatic day/night modus is useless.

It would be nice if Waze checks every 10 minutes or so if it needs day or night mode, or just use the light sensor when available. Again every 10 minutes or so to save battery.

Don't know for sure and the behaviour might have changed, but why should waze turn on night mode in my case immediately after GPS-lock when light sensor is used? Just guessing...

Known issue, will be fixed.

We will change that for the next official version (3.6).

Also the last time I looked at it the tekst in this tab wasn't translated.
- The 'on-route' events are allways wrong. Both in the preview screen as in the reports screen when the on route tab is selected. This is a major issue and should be fixed!!

2x +1!
The information tab has worked for a short time, but has been down for a long time now. That someone who's surely fixing it for me is taking his time ;-)
