Looks good and I love the color usage in the night mode.

BUT the colors for the labels in night mode (haven't seen day mode yet) are the same as the road color. So I had several times the idea, must I turn right already? The label is more clear then the line for the route and the following point makes the label better visible then the route.

Also on my HTC Sensation, the route is not very clear in the distance. I often used that information to decide on which lane I must drive, but (again in night mode) it is hard to see where the road is going. I guess the line becomes too small and the fact that an extra darker line drawn around the route makes it worse. But that extra line looks good where I drive. I would suggest to put some attention on the drawing of the route line for further away.

I drove on "US Hwy 46" this morning, and the purple street name just said "46". Since this is not a shield, it should probably say the whole thing.

Events that on your route contain the wording "X min head on route"

Not at all! We're almost finished working on that feature and it will be released in the next beta.


Yes, but while driving, I would like to see simply which events are for me and not the other side of the highway. I was thinking graying out all non-route events or bolding the borders for events on the route.

I've seen police reports not on my route, when I specified events should only be on my route.

Ok.. I still need a lot more time on this build, but after my commute home, here are my initial thoughts:

1) New Navigation Line - Needs work. It looks amateurish, especially when you show the same road name twice. Maybe just bold the old street name on for the commute or make it a different color? Have this purple one AND the regular name, looks bad.

2) Less street names... it does look a lot emptier now. I need time to get used to it.

3) I have no idea what the inbox is used for. How does this benefit my drive? I really hope this isn't a 'fluff' feature.

4) 'Events on Route' - On one hand, I like seeing all of the events in my area, but at the same time I care more about the events on my route. Can we somehow, graphically, differentiate the 2? Maybe have the events on route have a thick graphical border, or have events not on the route have a more matte/grey tone? I think that would be a cleaner look.

5) The screen feels really empty now, which isn't horrible; especially if it is going to make me focus on the road more... lol.

On one of the previous betas, there was a non-functional report button for a roadblock. Has that feature been dropped altogether? I would have thought that would have been developed by now since we saw that button a while ago.

Another bug:

As you can see, my current level is GrownUp Wazer but the orange slide bar is showing me that I've passed the limit to the next level.
On my dashboard on www is showing my correct level GrownUp.

"Refresh map of my area" option from Data transfer is behaving weird. After pressing the option it does not revert to the map like in the stable version instead it goes back to the Advanced panel.

@perlin. Any ideea why this beta version is not working on HTC Desire S with Android 4.0.4 ? The official version is working OK, but the beta version gives me a blank screen right after entering the app and makes me to force shut down the app. I've clean installed the app, and delete the waze folder from SD card before installing.
