Are you using the native ROM / native fonts of the device? Or is it something custom on your phone?


I'll try to take a picture with external camera and post it as soon as i can
I'm using factory default ROM/fonts/android operating system

Thanks.

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.

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...

Pessoal;

Samsung Galaxy Y

Vocês saber dizer se esse problema é só com a versão atual ou acontece o mesmo problema com as versões mais antigas?

Fico no aguardo.

Atenciosamente;
Daniel Schenkel


personnel;

Samsung Galaxy Y

You know to say if this problem is only with the current version or is the same problem with older versions?

I'm waiting.

Sincerely;
Daniel Schenkel

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???



Well could be, however, using Google Maps... it works ok... and the streets and all place names looks fine... i dont know whats going on...
