I don't know if it's you (it's not in the release note), if it's Google Music or if it's Android, but now the music volume is automatically lowered by "someone" while Waze's giving directions. :lol:
If it's you, this sometimes happens without a clear reason (no sound from Waze).
I've noticed that it's less responsive than the previous version, but maybe it's just Debug fault.

Why don't you auto close (after a certain timeout) gasprice input screen? It's so unhandy to press the small X button on the top right corner of the screen...

Everything I have noted so far I believe have been mentioned before:
- Rate the app (again)
- Old work address keeps popping up as destination no matter what time of day I use the app. The address is no longer assigned to the work button and I have not driven there in over a year.
- Recommended driving directions take you on less than desirable routes
---crossing a six lane road from a minor road with no red light instead of a block away from a primary road with a red light.
---instead of making a left at a red light, Waze prompts me to go straight and then make two lefts then a right. I double checked the turn restrictions in the editor and all are correct.

The results are public results - anyone can use FourSquare (or any of the providers) without an account. You just can't check-in or earn points without an account.

Thanks to all of you for the explanations (you, bedo2991 an Perlin).

My assumption would be that waze tries to calculate a route to work (are you driving to work?) which is in Finland, but as I'm on vacation in Switzerland at the moment the distance exceeds the maximum.

So maybe it's not really a bug, more a user experience problem, but it is still confusing to get an error message at every start.

You are absolutely right and we are going to fix two main problems that lay here: we won't auto- suggest far away routes and won't display to the user an error message that is related to a route that he didn't even initiate. It's indeed like you said - a user experience problem.
Thanks for reporting!

See red arrows... There is no unit after the digit !

NOET ALSO THAT Euros is not "E". It is "€".
The error is the same as if you put "S" for US Dollar instead of "$".

Please put the right symbol for Euros.

Working on it.

You don't need to have a Foursquare account to get results from it. Foursquare is a search provider like all others.

I would like to know why there are 4 buttons in "Station nearby" ?
What is the purpose of each button ?
Google et Bing do not give results.
Waze gives some results... And what is the first left button ?
