It should use the phone's compass to orient correctly when started. Recalculation takes too long if it starts in the wrong direction.

I see everybody in "My Friends" list last connected 8 days ago or even more although I am pretty sure that I saw some of them online yesterday.

When the gas prices report window reports an error on send, it stays open, allows me to change the prices but re-send is not possible, the button in the upper right corner is changed to cross to close the window only.

This is a betatest feedback thread. I would prefer a paid version instead of annoing pop-ups too but please make a separate thread.

well that's nice :) but waze has also local translations and people who don't speak English use them. They won't know what's ETA either :) - unless they use logic and see it is estimated time of arrival. Funny example: ETA e.g. used to be a brand of electronics, or still even is over here - not sure :)

You are right but don't forget that it's not easy to translate ETA with something which fits this small window because we and also you don't have such understandable shortcut for it. I have no problem if ETA is removed. Everybody smart enough or used to Waze will know the second day what's that time.

This is problem of one of the voice files waze/sound/.../StartDrive?.bin

If you know the person responsible for Italian voice files, try to solve it via your national forum otherwise contact Waze support.

From the very first release the sentence "Your phone GPS is turned OFF" is in english in many translation (maybe all? I've only tried Italian and French). I've asked my CM why and she said "We can't translate it because of a bug" (and I believed her).
Today I found out that it's not translated because in the lang.language file you gave them there's a "double space" between "is" and "turned":
Code: Select all
Your phone's GPS is  turned OFF=Il GPS è spento

instead of:
Code: Select all
Your phone's GPS is turned OFF=Il GPS è spento

There are some other in the translation file, check them too.

This is nothing for perlin or this thread. Please send this to translations@waze.com

Fixed in translation system. When processed by your local translator it will appear in client soon.

Nice idea but I think it's not feasible to have icon for all brands in all countries and if shown only some of them this would be an advangate for them for nothing. Could be good opportunity for Waze to offer it as paid service. ;) But this is for discussion not in this beta thread.
