I tried both ways; with the icon on Menu->Stations and with Menu->Navigate->Categories->Gas stations.

We are you located?

Noted in the post.

I'm not able to reproduce your problem. I can find gas stations in Montreal (both on Menu->Stations and Menu->Navigate->Categories->Gas stations).
Does it happen only with gas or also with other categories?

That would be great but although I have ASR enabled its three finger tap only so waving is pretty useless, especially as I Waze in landscape mode where waving doesn't even work. Please get rid of this.

Definitely, this message should only show up when waving for ASR actually works. We'll fix it.

I second this. I have especially considered (1) and (2) -- as it stands, I have to report a disabled car in the middle of the road as an "object on road" with the description "car"... Also, there's quite a lot of shoulder work around that carries the same heightened fines that on-road construction does.

(1) and (2) indeed sound reasonable to add. We'll try to add them as soon as we can.

Is there a list of ASR-recognized hazards that do not show in the selection box somewhere?

Hi guys,

2 things I noticed:

- in the My Waze area, under "nick name" there is no "back" button. All the other screens under "My Waze" have an "end" button and a "back" button, but not this one.

- And a behavorial thing: when I get into a traffic jam, I send an information about it to waze. And 30 seconds later it asks me "we detected you're slowing down...are you in traffic?" (don't know the exact wording, I'm using the German version). And I want to scream "YES I JUST TOLD YOU!" Could you maybe build in some buffer that after I send in a traffic report it should wait a while before aksing me the same thing?

OK, one minor bug I've seen from prev version also:
Try this:
Select a route other than the "default" route to a destination
stop the app
restart the app
It asks do you want to continue, but doesn't continue on the route you selected, it goes back to the default route.

Suggestions for future releases:
--Eliminate "you are nearing your destination" - Give me something better like "your destination is 1/4 mile ahead on the right / left" (this would really help)
--Bring back Google as a search app
--More interatcions with other search apps like yelp / etc. Similar to what you have with "Around Me"

Great app
Thanks

Under groups menu, the loading animation is the old one.

Also don't know if colors changed but night drive, it looks harder to see witch the road to follow if the phone is a bit far. At least I noticed a bit mor difficult to see, not much color difference.

The version works very stable on my iPhone 5 with 6.1.2.

There is one small issue, but it's not really a bug:

Yesterday, I wanted to enter a turn restriction for the next junction. However, I could only edit a node with a right-turn 15m in front of the junction. Waze allowed only edits for the first node, not for the second one which represented the main junction. I am aware of lots of junctions with more than one node, so I do believe that the current restriction is impractical. This should be expanded.

Best regards,

Detlev
