you need a jailbroken iphone but you can do it...

No, I meant there are a bunch of us on the waze beta list. Unfortunately Apple limits the number of people waze can add to that list.

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!!! :)



completely agree ;)

WOW, So I used the new beta tonight, talk about GPS lag. Very choppy on my 3GS. screen showed my position roughly 3-5 seconds after my turn (was always instant on all other versions). I'll test again tomorrow.

Oh, yeah, my point total on the phone dropped from 303k to 224k when I installed this version a couple days ago, but my rank stayed the same. The dashboard seems to be showing the proper totals—unless it's stuck and I didn't notice...

I'll never understand which is the right one.
iPhone: 55k points, rank 665
Dashboard World: 57k points, rank 665
Dashboard WWW: 49k points, rank 655

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.

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)

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 :)

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.
