Today I tested the route sharing by email Waze ...

I've noticed this too. Perhaps subconsciously. Nowadays, when I'm approaching a major decision point (an interchange, major street intersection, etc.) I will sometimes hit the routes button manually, because I don't necessarily trust that Waze has looked, particularly if I'm seeing traffic icons ahead. And, I'll find, often alt routes will save 10-20% of the time. (Like, 17 minutes when the one I'm on is 20.) That's significant enough to think a route change might be warranted.

Ha! Beat me to it.

Perlin, it really is time to get the fundamentals right before adding any more social bloat.

The main menus/icons presentation also needs a complete rethink as they're not looking good aesthetically or functionally.

Edit: A fuel delivery tanker broke down on the road ahead of me today, blocking one of two lanes and causing a major traffic jam. The closest report for this is still 'on shoulder...car stopped'. Please at least change this to 'vehicle stopped' as suggested a long time ago. A better idea would be to replace 'on road...roadkill' with 'lane blocked' and let people use 'object on road' for roadkill.

OK - while I'm here then...

It would be great if the map's road speed and incident indicators had a direction indicator on them so it's easy to tell whether they affect the road ahead of me or are on 'the other side'.

When navigating a route (to, say home), a bar appears on the summary highlighting any slow/problem areas along the way. It would be great if there was a similar vertical bar (optional) on the side of the live display highlighting any problem spots - mock up below:

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.

Hi,

I have a bug on my Xperia P with Android 2.3 when I rotate the phone, the screen becomes black and nothing responds until I get a "force close" for Waze.

To reproduce :
  • Start Waze in portrait mode
  • go back to launcher setting Waze in background
  • turn your phone in landscape mode
  • return to waze
  • You get the black screen and waze will crash soon

You can reproduce also changing from landscape to portrait.
The important part to reproduce is to change orientation while waze is in background.

Regards
Keep the good work, thanks.

Hi,

On my side I have never seen friends on Waze.
When watching my dashboard on waze web site I have 3 friends coming from Facebook.
When watching friends on Waze application on my phone (Xperia P with Android 2.3) I see no friend at all !!

I tried to disconnect/reconnect to Facebook. Nothing changed. Still no friend...

What do you see when you go to "Friends" menu? Can you provide a screenshot?


I changed the scope of privacy and now I see my friends. I changed from the more restrictive level "Mes amis proches uniquement" to "Mes amis de Facebook" and now I see my friends !
Sorry for the wrong report but I didn't find intuitive the choice...

Thanks
