Someone recently posted the code to determine dawn/dusk for any point on earth any time of the year.

I live in Chennai(f.k.a Madras). When I was using Waze in New Delhi, India, Waze switched modes at 1800, even if sunset was at 1900 Hrs.
It is likely that the time switch is not linked to Sunrise / Sunset times. That does not affect me coz I've started running the client in Map Editor theme, and since yesterday have switched the night mode off.

Probably. I could have sworn mine also turns around at 1800 though...

Here (W.Europe) there is a shift of 1-3 minutes per day, depending on the season. Works like a charm.

Day/Auto/Night Switch

Postby yrrabsille » Fri Dec 07, 2012 11:28 am

I'm using release 3.5.1.0 on an iPhone 4S

As an example, Yesterday I left Portsmouth, NH at 2pm. the Sun set around 4:30pm and by 5pm it was completely dark out. When I arrived in Times Square at 7pm, it was still displaying in Day mode. When I got there, I shut down the app completely (even from the background) and then fired it back up and it came up in Night mode. It's been doing this kind of thing since I first started using Waze (May 2011).

I won't say it NEVER switches, but it's a rare event.

See I'm in Western Europe too (UK) and I don't have any issues with mode switching either. Strange one that.

Exactly. In NY State, two hours after sunset I restarted the app and it finally came up in night mode.
... and the "v" is for Volvo.

I am rarely driving at sunrise or sunset, but when I am, Waze automatically switches within minutes of sunrise/sunset (based on the Garmin in my work truck & the sunrise/sunset time in my clock app on my work phone).

I had today off work today, and I ended up driving at sunset... Sunset in Hartford, CT was at 4:19pm today - Waze was in day mode earlier & when I looked at it at 4:21 it was in night mode.

What device are you using?

I started with an iPhone 3GS last year and have since upgraded to the 4S and I've always kept my app up to date with the latest versions and it's always done this to me
