Here goes my comment:

When will it be available for market?

Does this version support offline paving of roads?

It will be in the market once we've gotten enough feedback that it is functioning well (hopefully better than previously).
It does have the correction that enables data accumulated in off-line to be uploaded to the site (but the current Android version has the same correction already so I am not sure if you currently do not have ability to pave when being disconnected from the mobile Internet). If you are referring to totally off-line usage of waze (I.e. waze will not attempt to connect via the mobile internet), that version does not have this capability.

Hmmm 2 things already:
- crashed while browsing the settings. Will see if it is stable tomorrow.
- From the wishlist: auto-night-mode stil does not function.

Hi,

I've tried it yesterday for a few minutes, it still takes more then 30 seconds after you touch a button in the settings menu, moving the map is still slow (several seconds, sometimes a few minutes deley) and the programm still freezes for a few minutes.
There is always the message Parser: unexpected data.
After you start the programm it takes a few minutes before you can enter settings or do anything like zooming in or out from the map. I will try a few new and old roads today, but I doubt it'll be a big improvement.

In the previous version I have deleted the folder on the SD card and let the program redownload all the data. It seems the program has serious issues updating data on the sd card like when you munch a road and it switches it later to a real road, the program freezes for 1-2 minutes.

@damaniac: Hard for me to explain that. I tested it extensively and it felt much much faster (on a Cliq). Did you install it from scratch ? And what device did you install it on ? Do you see the 1.5.2.0 version when pressing the wazer on the upper left corner (just in case the installation did not succeed) ?

I also get the Parser-message continously.

Which folder on the sd-card do you delete? Since i have the same, that my client does not update the roads everyday....

Just to update we corrected the parse error - should not appear any more when you reactivate the application. Had to do with a mismatch of configuration between new client and server.
