Cannot get ASR to function. Sometimes, the screen blanks, but then nothing. Sometimes, the ASR audio prompt plays and interface visual happens and reads "Listening..." but it never responds to any command given: doesn't seem to know you've said anything as it doesn't stop spinning. I've tried disabling and re-enabling ASR, including restarting the app. But I cannot get it to work so far. Logs uploaded 2013-01-31 around 9:10PM GMT.

When i change the activation method from 3 fingers to hover and 3 fingers,tapping on back button screen turn black/disappear.. I've made a video...

Be careful with the position of your finger. I think you are activating ASR because your finger is too close to the proximity sensor?

(Continuing) BUG: Waze announces "500ft" to turn at the .19mi or 1000ft mark and then gives the final turn instruction at the 500ft mark.

(Continuing) BUG: Event radius is set to All, and Events show under Reports, but at stop lights, I get no popups at all. This started in the previous version.

I like the new labels for the roads being traveled on in navigation mode. I am sure many people who have requested it for years, would also like to see an indication onscreen, like at the top, of the current road name even when not in navigation mode. It often takes too long to figure this out from the normal road names and having it always visible would be a welcome option to add.

The new labels display has some spacing and visibility bugs. (Sorry for the different image sizes.)

1. When the name of the road is in purple, don't display that name anywhere else. Too crowded and looks odd:

Image


2. Street names are sometimes nowhere near their actual location. The blue arrow points to the only street by this name in the area. Permalink to the junction the car arrow is on. Car is driving south in the screenshot below.

Image

A slightly different view showing two things: 1) Schottky Terrace still way out of place, and 2) Doubling up of the Murray Blvd street name which should only be shown once.

Image


3. Another example of doubling up of street names in nav mode:

Image


4. Street names in purple which will be turned onto should always be fully shown onscreen and not show partially like this.

Image


5. I really dislike that the purple road name is using the highway number only for state highway. I am not sure what it should show, as "State Hwy 219" seems too long, but that would be the only current proper name to display.

Image

Interstates still show the full "I-#" naming for the purple nav line, so I like that, but not the state highway rendering. Also note the mixture of "I-5 N/S" labels in this view. Too cluttered.

I am confused on the ASR activation method. I've done a "single wave" and it seems to work. I'm unsure what a "double wave" looks like. The menu item in the Settings still says "Hover" so that should be changed to whatever the action actually is.

The whole UI needs to be designed to conform to the "night mode" needs so as to not affect driving vision. A large white popup onscreen is extremely distracting and potentially dangerous.

Please use a different icon for Gas Stations in the main menu to be non-US specific (and a few other countries which use the same currency symbol). Or make a localized image for each country.

Apologies in advance for intruding on the iOS thread, but I will note that the on the android beta last night I saw "50" in the purple box for "US-50 E," "I-97" for "I-97 S" and "State Hwy 32" for "State Hwy 32 E" at this segment. Surprised that it showed "State Hwy" for me, but just 219 for you. I will admit my reaction was that I'd prefer just 32 like the plain 50 for the US route.

Do the highway shields appear correctly in the app for those segments? I am mobile now but would fire up safari with WazeBar to see if those segments have the highway number in the shield number field.
