Kind regards.


Hi,

only small pics can be uploaded (250kB), but after seeing your screenshot - it might help to turn off the Display Auto Mode.

It's easy:
My Waze (bottom left key) -> Go to Settings -> Quick Settings -> Mode (->Day).

In general, Display Setting are also there to play with your Map Color Scheme.

  • Replaced default travel line with light blue travel line—much easier to see against the map

This is lovely!

Which schema is the Map Editors? I thought it would be 11, but there IS no 11... Odd.

I'm wanting to basically make the backgrounds darker in it but otherwise use it as an everyday theme. Since using some of the night themes in here, I'm actually liking them during the day too. But I like the editor colors. :)

[quote="Alenzen" ]How could I change my night map color to RED (as per the user reefland's screenshots) ? I'm running waze on iPad not android though

Any help is appreciated as my car dashboard is red and I'm dying to match it (OCD :)[/quote]

You likely missed this post from Alan, and the two after that.

The rest of the instructions on what file to change you'll find further up in this same thread.

How do I edit the default day scheme? I tried \sdcard\waze\skins\default\day\schema and \sdcard\waze\skins\default\schema_day but it won't change the colors. It works for night mode though when I edit \sdcard\waze\skins\default\night\schema. Am I editing the wrong file for the day theme?

Searched the forum but can't find what I 'm doing wrong.

I changed the purple navigation in night mode to light blue, because the purple was sometimes hard to see.

the one inside the day folder = Vitamin C
1 = The Blues
2 = Mochaccino
3 = Snow Day
4 = Twilight
5 = Tutti-fruiti
6 = Rosebud
7 = Electrolytes
8 = Map Editors
9 = Green peace
10 = Minimalism
11 = Green fields
12 = Default

12 seems to be the one, thank you.

Another question, does anyone know what value to edit to change the background color of the street names you 're navigating on? See the attached picture, I want to change the purple color into a green color to match the new navigation color.

as far as those purple bubbles, i don't think they can be changed.

Yeah, I had read that post but it doesn't contain what I 'm looking for. Would be a shame if this color is not editable.

Does anyone know how I can the default landmark colour (light blue) for the "Map editors" schema? I've looked into the schema8 file but cannot work out which one it is.

I really like the red night theme. I've tried Diskaid & iExplore but it seems the files are locked. I can't delete or change the name of the current (default) schemes. Did Apple lock things up?
