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

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?

Hello, I have the same problem with Samsung Galaxy Ace - wrong characters in ALL street names. I also use Waze on Samsing Galaxy S and Sony Ericsson Live (all Android 2.3), and do not have this font problem.

Yes, I also updated to the latest Beta with no effect on my Samsung Ace. Still wrong characters in street names. Hope Waze would do something with it!

Hi Daniel,

I'm a new user so i have never used any previous version. Only used the most recent version available. But, in a previous post someone said the previous version worked fine...

Thanks!
