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.

Actually it is time of day. No light sensors.

Since I installed this beta version on my Galaxy S3, Waze has been unable to reach the servers through 3G. Other apps access the internet without problems. Any ideas?
Best regards,

This release is working well for me....much more stable and have not had any network issues like previous beta.

Things I would like to see added:

1. I take my kids to school, and then head to work. I would like to be able to create route that I can save as a favorite and not have to "Add a Stop" each time I use Waze.

2. The gas station locator is great....except it does not have enough of a mileage radius. I would like to see an option to extend the radius and then sort by price or distance.

Thanks for the continued great product....

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.

Can't say Ive seen any major issues or odd behaviours. Some of the old known bugs remain but all in stable, reliable and usable. Get it up on Play.
