This has happening with the previous beta too: when someone shares some events on FB even if I click few seconds after the event was posted on Facebook I get the following error on the Waze page that opens "We're having trouble retrieving the event data.Please try again later." This is happening all the time on all event reports on FB.

Ok, so perhaps those users are still using the client version from Play. Still, they need to block those things, a lot of users see those messages as like errors and users don't like errors. Nobody would join waze if the first thing they see is an error message.

On Map Chat - Comments, the name of the street misses the bottom part of the text. There should be Str. Nicu Filipescu. Timișoara

On the screenshot you can see that the tail of the p and the diacritic from letter ș are missing. I think there are few pixels that are missing there.

Waze close itself if I turn off the screen but only if no navigation is made. Even if I have gps lock and I'm driving then I turn off the screen in few minutes Waze close itself. If I navigate to some place then Waze stays on even if the screen is off.

I think it should be on all the time if there is a GPS lock and the car is in moving. I turn off the screen sometimes on longer routes to preserve the battery and Waze closing itself is not helping me.

I'm on 3.5.99.910 beta but I tried the stable Play version too and it does the same.

Report pop-ups not working

Postby VernL4 » Mon Feb 18, 2013 8:05 pm

Reports no longer pop-up when I'm sitting still. The screen blinks and starts to zoom out, like it's going to show the reports, but nothing displays, and a second later, the screen zooms back in to my current location. Advertisements for nearby retailers do work, but not the traffic reports.

Thank you,
Tom

Backstory:
A) During last night's drive I reported 3 map problems
B) 1 individual "FIXED" one of my problems but I really fixed all 3 (and 'solved' the other 2).
C) This morning I turn on my phone (not Waze), and I get an Android Waze notification that my map issue was fixed (not from email - but from Waze).
D) I click on the message and Waze starts up and it sends me to a message from my inbox showing me a nice message that my issue was resolved.

Bugs/Problems/Issues
1) When exiting the message and going into my inbox - it is empty.
2) I should have gotten 3 messages, not 1.
3) The message was longer than the screen, but I couldn't scroll down.
4) It looks like I can swipe to the left/right, but nothing actually happened.
5) The message that told me who fixed the report, used my facebook real name, not my username.
6) Is there a setting to turn this notification feature off? I don't want another app running in the background the whole time - my phone can't handle it.

Downloading, installing, first startup. Nor problems.
But I'm not using landscape.

What I did notice that only on the second startup the question came if I wanted to download the voices.

Very often I see that the streetnames start blinking. This happens when I standing still (the screenshot) or when I'm driving. Most of the time the street name is switching rapidly between two locations on the screen. This happens for multiple labels at the same time.

Also sometimes the street name label is atop a warning, which makes it invisible.

Phone: HTC Sensation with Jelly Bean.

That is a bad idea to show real names unasked for.
About 6). The fact that Waze does not close down completely is already the case for several months. But it was not noted before, because there were no actions attached to that resident program, until now.
Waze staying active has been reported several times (also by me).

in version 3.5.3.904 a new feature was included

6. New suggested-route popups: displays only "Yes/No" when asked if you want to drive somewhere (work/home)

the new pop-up shows perfect, but after checking YES, the old pop-up is also shown. I guess that it should not show.

OS: android 2.3.6

best regards

It should be shown. The information on what you can expect on the route is there. More important is, how can we see this screen without doing a recalculation?
