Missing categories buttons on Android

Postby Hervax73 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 5:54 am

Hi everyone,
I'm using Waze 4.26.0.3 on Android 5.1.1 (in French), but the problem is here for quite some time (since 4.16 or 4.17 probably).
    When I press the magnifier and then the search field, I have a choice between Favorites and History.
    When I click anywhere on the map and then on the search field, I can choose between Home, Work, Gas stations and Favorites.
But in any cases, I never get the (blue) buttons for a category search.
Could this be related to my low screen resolution (Acer Z330: 854x480) ?

[EDIT] I will try to be clearer with pictures :
Android version :

iOS version :

How can I get the POI buttons on my Android phone ?

Hi everyone,
I tried today on my son's One Plus X (Full HD screen) and still no access to the POI. It must be coming from the App itself, not from the screen resolution.
How can you (Android users) access to the, say, gas stations while driving ?

Hi,

The only way to access gas stations while driving was for me to roll back to v4.16.0.1. This way, "Gas stations" appear as a menu item, not as a icon.

Some people solved this issue setting value "Categorical Search.Feature enabled" to 0 in preferences file, but I was myself unable to find this file.

If you can read french, here is the thread I opened about this bug : https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=223&t=231345
