There seems to be a limit of 4 MB on the SD card for the entire directory. Is there a way the program can cache more data, maybe some option in the preferences? What's the map.cache option for, should it be increased to run smoother?

Hi,

thanks for the updates, which come pretty fast. Great to see there is always improvement. What about the landscape mode switch? Is there any way the program can disable it in the near future?

regards

Android version 1.5.2.4 is released and can be downloaded from

http://tiny.cc/1524

Fixed:

* Alerts list sorting crash
* 3D crash

Note we are going to put it in the market in a few hours.
Regarding the menu, we will see about enabling an option to set the old mode. This mode was done to be Android UI compatible but I understand the issue of additional clicks.
Regarding the colors, we will look into more schemes, problem is that the jam colors are already red,yellow,orange (and we didn't put green as well) so we are running out of colors.

yup, in most of those color schemes either some type of road blends in with the background, or two types of roads look the same .. or both. maybe a color picker could get incorporated into the menu? (sorry, i know this isn't the suggestions thread..)

Why we don't have any classic color scheme? Like red, yellow, green, etc. roads? I don't like any of themes supplied ;P Maybe same colors like in web editor could be good enough...

that's a good idea, i'd also like to see some on-screen buttons to which you could assign actions from the menu (shortcuts, anyone?). it would also be helpful to have a toggle in the menu for the screen rotation (portrait / landscape / auto - based on whether it's enabled by the device or not)

Thanks a lot for new bug fixes! But I must ask you again to bring back old-style bottom menu as option. It's very, very, very inconveniently to:
- find and press small and dark hardware 'Menu' button;
- wait until native menu appears (there may be very long delay at that step!);
- try to hit proper menu button;
- try to do something following by that (send road report or something else).
Note that all these steps I must pass while driving a car, instead of looking forward to the road! It's not only inconvenience, but every exessive dialog and every exessive press to the menu button is really dangerous to driver! That's why i stopped sendind road reports at all. :( Do think of usability!

By the way, is there any easy way to make waze client to return to my current position while on the way? Every accidental touch to the map screen makes waze client to stop following my motion and the only way to return to my current position is to pass all that nightmare with menus again and again. If you determined not to bring old-style menu back, maybe you should allow user to chose on-screen buttons to quick access frequently used functions?

Yesterday the 13th I was on the 1.5.2.1 or 1.5.2.2 and there must be something wrong with points and the new beta.
I don't remember the exact point score I had yesterday but I am pretty sure it should have increased to more than it is today.
I have all of the driven kms in my dashboard, but doesn't seem to have gotten any points.
Yesterday I also did way more map editing than I normally do as well.
It can't be true that you are supposed to drop 5 positions with over 300 KM and several hours of map editing.

Could you please look into this, and if its correct explain why I haven't gotten any points, or so few.

Today I was on the 1.5.2.3, and hope that haven't done anything funny as well.
