In Switzerland we need green, blue, red, (white for exits, if possible...):

Hi everyone!

Wow, you were quick! It's a please having you so enthusiastic, keep it going...

So, we are currently not supporting the road shield feature outside the US, but we expect to do it sometime soon. We will be happy to discuss all these issues then.

Thank you all for your great feedback!

The beta version of the Waze app now puts purple bubbles along the route containing the road name. Doesn't this make the road badges rather redundant? Do we really need both?

I think we do, because road badges also contain information in form of color, and in some countries there are exit badges etc.

I would say that the application should not show the bubbles on segments which support the shields.

And the bubbles dissappear when travelling at higher speeds (autozoom by speed), at the same time normal streets are no longer shown. For me (small screen in landscape) that is allready at 30 kmh.
