When posting new beta threads, they need to be sticky, and the old thread needs to be unstickied. Thanks!

iOS beta 3.5.1.999 feedback thread

On my commute this morning, I was not running in navigation mode, but went through twointersections with red light cameras, but neither red light camera triggered an alert. In both cases, the red light cameras did appear on the map.

Is this a new bug or is it a new feature where red light cameras don't alert unless you are in navigation mode now?

This doesn't appear to be released via TestFlight, only the direct link. That link installed .999 for me.

I really don't think there's much point to us testing this. By the version #, I would bet this has been sent to Apple already for release as v3.5.2. It typically happens that few fixes are done after the last beta and before release.

Yes, they have. I can't say for sure about any previous 3.5.1.x beta, though. This was the first time I was around RLCs but not navigating.

I surely hope not, I've been detecting issues with non translatable strings popping up. Not the case that the string doesn't yet exist on the translation file, but cases where even putting the string there won't translate it. The most obvious one is on navigate main screen, "categories", "favorites" and "pick up" are broken. Those are major regressions :(

Then I hope to be wrong.

I got confused with all the numbers, but what he means, and is right, is that albeit it was mentioned that the "dialogue doesn't grow to keep the same size", but when when navigation is on, the dialogue does indeed grow, which is a conflict.

You're right. It does this in portrait too. I still think it's by design, but I'm not sure of the reason now. At the very least, it should be sized to fit the full icons and not cut them off.

Could someone please let us know when the on route event filtering is put in place on the server? Thanks.

I am disappointed that the popup event no longer have the distance to that event included in the text. I would like to see this information added back in. It can be very small, right after the number of minutes posted would be a fine place and wouldn't take up any more vertical space on the screen.

More complaints about the pop-up notifications when stopped.

#1 City with no road information is useless. These should never pop up. There is no point and serve to make the users mad. They has posted this frustration anger repeatedly in the forums.

Image Image


#2 A pop-up with no street is bad enough. But a pop-up with no street and no city? This should absolutely never appear in the app. Never ever never ever.

Image


#3 Popups should resize automatically either in window size or font size to actually include all the information necessary. Having the text truncated serves to make this popup, like the ones above, pretty much useless as the important information is missing and not available.

Image


#4 "Are you going home/work?" popup when I am already there. Clearly, I am really, really close to home. Waze should NOT prompt me to drive home when I am already there. A minimum radius needs to be set, perhaps a 1/4 mile or 1/2 mile or so, where this popup is suppressed.

Facebook picture icons: I don't have too many friends who allow their facebook picture to appear, but I don't recall ever seeing this icon like this on the map before. Maybe I'm just not paying attention, or no one I know allows their picture to be shown

I don't think it's a great use of screen space because there are two icons for a single Wazer: their mood icon plus their fb picture. Can we just have the fb icon?
