I would like better if you tap on a menu button and may be slide it a little bit to still open the menu (not to get the slide function: navigation) this because I tap on the buttons while on the car and it´s moving so it´s hard to just tap the button without any movement, so I have to try 2 or 3 times to tap the menu button in order to open the menu

Tapping de buttons just opens the menus, no need to slide...

No it isn't. He isn't invisible, and neither am I, but my mood icon in the menu is the same.

That's normal behaviour. The auto destination learning is done on the server side, it's not linked to a favorite you store locally. You'll have to teach it again. Don't worry, it will learn your new job eventually.

About the popup reports, please improve the layout in landscape. The popup always hides the map, so the actual situation on the map isn't visible. That's especially annoying, when wanting to check out traffic jams and their exact length and location. Maybe move the popup to the left of the screen and center the location of the map on the right half of the screen.

And a minor thing: maybe the splash screen could be landscape too? My One X is in landscape in the car holder, and so is the Android home screen. The splash screen goes portrait, but after the splash screen Waze goes landscape.

I fail to see any difference between test, test2 and test3. At least at daytime. Maybe it's only at night indeed.

After using these betas for a while, I'm coming to the conclusion that the new Wazer mood icons are a bit pale or dull. It is easier to interpret the mood of other Wazers around me with the play store version. The beta version's moods don't speak out as much, even the royalty status is harder to spot. Maybe it's because they're smaller, or less colorful.

I used to be able to distinguish commuters around me based on their combination of mood, royalty and group icon. That's over now. Hope you can rethink this...

Some thoughts on Waze closing in the background.

Since a couple of weeks I changed my HTC DesireHD for a HTC One X. I found out fast that Waze closes more often in the background on my new device than on my old, although its specs are higher. That has been this way with the current market version and the last 3.4.99 betas. Switching from Waze to the gmail app and reading an e-mail can be enough to trigger this.

With closing in the background I mean that the Waze icon stays in the task bar, but when switching to it, Waze relaunches as if it wasn't running at all.

Apparently, the One X (or Android 4) memory management is more aggressive. I'm never using any task killers.

Here's some info on this subject, that was found during the development of Flitsnav, a Dutch GPS program that was experiencing exactly the same during development. I hope it can help you improve this behaviour, since several users are reporting this.

Waze closing in the background has to do with Android's Out Of Memory (OOM) management.

Some info on OOM_adj (-17 tot +15): The LOWER the value, the MORE important Android thinks the process is.

Foreground Application: -16 to 0
Visible Application: 1
Secondary Server: 2
Hidden Application: 3 to 7
Content Provider: 8 to 14
Empty Application: 15

Maybe you can adjust Waze, so that it sets is own OOM_adj to -17 and repeats that every 5 seconds for instance?

I have observed that sometimes waze route is interrupted (see image) but I never understood why, until yesterday.
In my opinion it would be necessary that in this case (that is, when waze propose me to go back) that there is a message that suggest "go back", because it's difficult understood what happen to waze.
