- 3 options for activating voice commands:

What is the destination code for activating these commands again? I forgot, something like #@aps@?

This morning I got a warning for a traffic jam. After hitting thanks, the popup staid on the screen? This is not the correct behaviour. Not sure if there was a countdown (I thought not) so I had to close it myself.

Next time I'll check if there is a countdown, but it would be better if it goes away after a thank you.

Oh and please can the big close button return on all the popups, so that we don't have to use that small cross in the upper right corner which is impossible to hit safely if you drive faster then 20 km/h?

+1


For reference.

Which pop-ups do you mean?
All popups.

Yeah I've done that just now. Drive through it? Umm...help?
Road closure is nice but I guess until things are done on the backend it's just an "avoid this road". But surely that can be done at a junction by driving another way?
I know it's in beta and I'm not trying to knock it at all, just saying. It's the start of something very promising indeed.
If for now it will only be device dependant, we need to select roads further away.
Also, it needs big enough buttons to press while driving. Currently it's too small and finicky.
Addresses in recent destinations cannot be seen, they're shifted too far down. Same in last beta.
Whatever happened to the voice recording for reports?

Other than that, amazing work as always. Looking forward to seeing what results from this road closure we've been waiting for. NOW Waze is becoming a serious threat as a general consumer GPS app ;-)

Auto night mode didn't switch over after restarting Waze a while ago. First time it's happened on any beta or final release.

Waze STILL does not work on GPRS. We don't have 3G in rural areas so tracks don't get uploaded and reports don't get sent.

This is a massive problem!

Cache reports to send when signal is there, or lower the server polling frequency.

Of course it's enabled...I think...
Other apps work fine on it.

Before driving such areas turn off WiFi and switch your phone to 2G only. I may help to avoid lost mileage.


Why would my WiFi be turned on when I'm driving??
And I am not switching to 2G only because one app won't play ball. Waze need to fix it. It's not mileage I'm worried about, I'm a level 4 editor with a few hundred square mile AM area, and close to 200k edits ;-)
Point is, reports should be able to be sent. Other apps work on 2G, so should Waze and it is a pretty big problem, even thinking about countries that could never use Waze on the fact they simply don't have 3G networks at all.
