Street Names wrong characteres

Postby XSkinner » Thu Mar 01, 2012 4:50 pm

Hello. Im Using whatsapp in my Samsung galaxy Y, the software run ok, but in the map, none of all streets has the right name, since all of these looks like weird characters. i.e. for "Calle 107" which is my street name, in the map it loks like "cla gg geg" and this is for all site names around the map... what could be? I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but nothing happens... My phone is running Android OS 2.3.6

Thank you for your support.

Posting a permalink from the Map Editor would be helpful in finding the issue. See "Map Editing" link in my sig.

Post a permalink to the street you have a concern about and someone can take a look and offer advice or even a fix. If you are using tapatalk and cannot see my see, here is the link to the permalink instruction: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... #Permalink

https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&l ... TTTFTTTTFT is the correct link (not www).

Is it every road or just a few specific ones? Could you post a screenshot?

I have exactly the same problem with Galaxy Y (Young S5360). The street names are displayed, in the smartphone, "agg ggg iig" etc... With Galaxy Mini, the street names are displayed ok.
I think is a issue with some font, or config.
I'll try to post a screenshot tonight. The version 2 doesn't have this problem. Sorry for my english, i'm brazillian and i'll try to do my best.

Same here I'am using the same model Samsung S5360 and the streets names are unreadable :| , I installed in my sony ericsson Xperia X8 and works ok so what is the problem maybe the resolution of the device QVGA vs HVGA???
