I have made some changes to my "Garminesque" color scheme. Mods, how do I update my wiki page to reflect the changes? Alternatively, how do I add color schemes to my profile?

Ah, gotcha. Thanks a million. It was a "not logged in" issue. No edit tab.

Problem solved. :-)

Thanks again!

Thanks spookyx!

I did a few more tweaks to Garminesque and uploaded the new source code to my Wiki page at https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:DeepSouthDiver . Both the night and day versions of the Garminesque theme have changed, so be sure to use the latest code.

The latest tweaks were:

1. Lightening the shade of the background areas like parking lots, government installations and gas stations. This improves readability when there is a "parking lot road" through one of these shaded areas.

2. Changed the background color of islands to match background color of mainland (there were some color matching issues - now resolved).

3. Dirt roads, 4x4 trails and walking trails now show up as a dirty tan color (vs. paved roads showing up an "asphalt" color), making it immediately obvious to the driver what's paved and what isn't. This can be very useful in rural areas.

Enjoy!

One thing I'm seeing as a consistent theme between all of our custom schemas is a better contrast between normal streets and background colors. It seems we've all chosen for streets to be grayish of some shade or another... And dirt roads to be brown or tan.

I prefer not to see city borders (I don't see how that affects navigation), and am not so hot on all the pastels in the display... But we clearly agree on a lot of other things.

Very nicely done!

I think that Waze should include some of these in their original color theme offerings so others can enjoy. As it is, Wazers basically have two options: A horrid "Map Editor's Theme" or a weak-looking, pastel-colored theme of one flavor or another. Waze should include these other offerings as well so people don't have to hack a decent appearance.

I still can't believe you need to root Android to get a screen capture. Not user friendly at all.

Not with the newer ones you don't

It would be nice to be able to customize Airports, Hospitals, and all others places available in WME.
2 years we are waiting for that too.
Why do we have to replace the night mode to be able to customize Waze ?
It would be better and easier to have "Day" "Night" and "Custom" options in the app.

Any chance someone can make one similar to the OS streetview dataset? If I ever get time I may do a few myself, some of the colouring in other products does look nicer in some ways at times.
