"Problem: wasaeaeaeseses"

How I wanted to respond: "Gezundheit."

How I actually responded: "Hello, and thank you for your report on Route 40 in Ellicott City. What was the nature of the problem you experienced?"

It'd be odd if they didn't show up at all, but Area Place names usually don't show up when navigating in 3D mode unless you start panning the map.

The S4 and 3 should both have the feature of power+home to capture as standard. I didnt have to download for that. But, using the volume button is way easier...

My S4 lacked that functionality... manual swipe is the only way to go.
The app is called "Screenshot Easy" and it has to run as a service. It behaves like the camera and takes you to the browser to view the screenshots folder after saving the image, so you get an immediate confirmation of what was saved.

However, the power-down volume or power-home is variable depending on the phone. My S4 only runs power-home

And BTW: On the "Not here" messages, they do behave differently from the "Thanks" messages in that they have never appeared in my in-box. The only pop up on the screen (and get replaced by warnings) so it's possible to ignore them... if you drive with the screen off unless you are actively looking for something then you'll likely never see them.
But I have seen a few, and like the "Thanks" message, there is an option to reply that is not a map chat.
I usually reply "That's great" so the person reporting "Not there" knows that I'm not mad that he "thumbed down" my report. Hey, if the hazard is cleared, the Waze map should clear too!

Verified today that is what is happening (easier to see on the night screen).

My favorite from last week was a driver who reported a problem without an explanation at a rest area. They didn't turn off their phone as they walked in to the building so you could see their little green route like go from the car to the restrooms.

I wanted to respond: "were they out of toilet paper? I need more information so I can look in to the problem you experienced." If I can figure out how to attach an image, I'll show you how I instead just giggled at them for leaving their phone on.
Puttering along....

I'm pretty sure NY disowned Staten Island at this point... Or is it just NYers that did?
