I wouldn't worry to much about the points currently, they are kind of broken. Mine stopped increasing a couple of weeks ago, and I didn't even install a new version.

I understand, but in all honesty why would you want a device that is locked to the bone where you can't do what you want with it? Also Waze on the app store is really far behind and this beta is a major improvement... I would be stupid if I went back to the appstore version lol... Plus the more people using the beta the faster they fix bugs and get enhanced features ;) am I right? We want all the bugs worked out and we want more features!!! :)

It's actually been like this for a few versions, but I always forgot to say it :oops:

Wait, really? Mine has never lowered the music for a voice prompt, not since the very first version.
I'm pretty sure mine did… but we're probably talking about version 1.2 or something like that. It's been a while… I told you I kept forgetting about it :lol:

The music volume no longer turns down when there's a voice prompt.

Sometimes if I change road the system "forgets" my actual destination and rolls back to basic free driving (not even the spinning "thinking" thing). It doesn't happen all the time, and setting again the destination fixes it.

When I get notifications, sometimes there's the arrow to show me the point… but other times it just moves the map without actually showing me where's the road it's talking about.

I'll never understand which is the right one.

Dashboard World: 57k points, rank 665
Dashboard WWW: 49k points, rank 655

Damn, I didn't notice it! Just… wow
Just to add a little extra touch, couldn't the system actually gather the weather info from some website and change the sky accordingly? After all, you already know exactly where we are, so it shouldn't be too hard.

And I'd also like to have different color themes for the Night mode… dark-gray is fine, but sometimes a little more contrast would be better.

This 1.5 is looking very good :)

I've got the same comment. Adding a single pixel space under would be ery nice.

Also I don't know if its linked but I've gone from about 60k points to 11k overnight. Hoping it will rectify over night.


I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing. Especially since I'm currently using the app store version but I often have it zoomed in, Waze will zoom out at some point and not zoom back to the level I had it, then I have to manually press buttons to zoom back to my desired level. Annoying yes, free navigation and contributing to "the greater good", PRICELESS ! :D
