+1 for having have friends on Waze without having to login through Facebook. I do use it and don't want to let that company track me any moe than they already do.

:cry: so sad, nothing much (for me) I don't use Facebook.

I love Waze so I don't wanna be mean but more Facebook stuff !

Aren't there more "PND things" to add or improve ?

I shouldn't ... but we are getting closer to release. I'll only say it involves some more integration with facebook.

In the latest beta release, the north-up lock still has the bad UI (IMO) for setting the lock, but it is working and working well. On the nav/map screen, you can't even twist the view to take it out of north-up view. All it does is slightly zoom in/out as your fingers try to twist it around. This is expected behavior. The "me-on-map" button returns the view to "center" on your current location, but north-up stays locked.

First of all, thanks for this beta thread

+1 for the north-up.
I use it sometimes and if you have to go everytime in the settings to select it
it's not very practicle.

Looks like a lot of bug fixes and not many new features, too bad

Here are my notes from testing and what I've seen posted for bug reports and issue. These are only related to the current release of beta. Another version is expected out soon which may or may not address all the issues.

Popup alerts are fine, but still have too much whitespace and don't include enough text. Popup ads are fine. There is an issue with the popup not relocating properly if navigation is canceled while the popup is in place.

Trinary sounds control works as expected.

Lock north up doesn't work any better than the current release, and is implemented as a Setting instead of on-screen, which I have an issue with. It does not persist between launches.

Exclusive moods are specific to editor rank, presumably Ranks 3, 4, and 5. A rank 5 can choose any of the three new moods. A rank 4 can choose two and a rank 3 can select only one. At this time, just like with the previous bronze, silver and gold wazers, these are automatically selected on each startup, which I have a problem with.

The 500ft notification at 1000ft is nearly complete. There is a specific situation where it will still give the notice at 1000ft.

I have found one way to reliably crash the app, but that should be addressed prior to release.

Well, then why have this forum?

There's a forum on the centercode site. Why do we need a forum in both locations, especially since this one won't be read?


:shock:
Because Wazers that can't be beta-testers (especially on iOS) would like to know what's coming up.
