Just added another 20 miles using the new client and feels solid. I like the zoom but would prefer to be able to hold a + or - and it keep zooming instead of repeatedly pressing button. 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

I like the bolder speed and ETA. The ETA does however need to be moved up just a little.

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

I saw a lot of crashes tonight using routing. I sent logs, it crashed 3 times while routing, then I ran it without routing for a while and it was stable.

Yes, I really dig the bold font, it's much more legible. ETA in landscape mode could be moved a little to the left, though:

Okay, so with all this talk about "performance improvements", I got excited and switched to 3D mode. And it's usable! And it has this:

A HORIZON! It's... it's so beautiful...

...And apparently, we live on Mars.

See, Phobos and Deimos, right there! :lol:

It'd be nice if the traffic alerts and such (seen in the previous picture) showed up on top of the horizon, though.

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 :)

Going on from my post a few days ago I am still showing as losing 60 thousand points on my iphone yet if I use my wifes hero it shows the correct 77k. Is anyone else seeing lost points on their iphone recently?

(as to the zoom thing I ment smooth zooming by pressing and holding the + button instead of incremental zooms per button press)

My points dropped about 4k after switching to the beta, but I thought it was the normal overnight process where the server was updating points. Maybe it's not? It hasn't updated the count since.
