It will ask what app you want to pass this to, and my choices are maps or waze. In play store version it used to pop up the drive to box with that address in it. With the beta versions it no longer does that, just opens the app.

The problem is that a speedometer disappears when adding a stop and pointing to a location on the map.

Steps to reproduce:
  • Navigate to any place
  • Go to menu and select "Add a Stop"
  • Go back twice to get back to the main screen
  • Tap and hold somewhere on the map and then select the blue arrow to the right of the popup
  • Press "Go" in the next screen
Speedometer will be gone.

Let me say that current way of selecting a point on map as a stop is not very intuitive. Better way would be to have a separate button saying something like "Point on Map" in the Navigate screen besides Categories, Favorites and History.


I'm seeing that too.

  • There doesnt seem to be a way to cancel the 'Are you heading to ...' directions, if I click the X it routes anyway, if I leave it alone it defaults to Ok, and the only other button is 'Routes'. Could we have a 'No' button?


This, very much! It's not quite so annoying to have to hit the little 'x', I guess I've started to get used to it already, since it's the only option on so many dialogues in the new betas, but a "No" or "Cancel" button would be much nicer.

Also, sometimes, it's so slow to come up with the "Are you heading to ..." that I've already started to select a different location to navigate to, and this pops up and overrides what I was already entering. It can take so long, that I can already be typing in an address to navigate to when it asks if I'm heading to Home, thus wiping out the portion of the address that I've already entered. I suppose the delay is fine, however, before that pops up, it needs to check to ensure that I'm not already in the destination selection dialogue system before it pops that up. Actually, it should probably ensure that I'm not actively "doing" something (i.e. any where in the menus) before it pops this up, and if I'm already into navigation, it shouldn't pop up at all.

I've taken a look at the "test", "test2" and "test3" color schemes, and I'm not particularly fond of them, which isn't a huge deal at all - that's why there are multiple schemes. However, I'm a bit miffed that after looking at them and deciding that I don't like them, when I go back to the "Map editors" color scheme, I still get "test" as the night scheme.

This shows that I have "Map Editors" is the selected scheme

And, here you can see that it's the blue "test" background.

Also, note the circled text in the second picture. It's odd how the wrapping works. I suppose it's a bug, and it's not a big deal, but it does seem to distract me when I look at it.

In this image, you can see a couple of more examples where the text wraps correctly (circled in red).
Also, notice the "Searching for network..." text on the right hand side. That was after about 5 min of driving - it was still searching. Once it found the network, it suddenly decided that I wanted to navigate to home.

As all of you already know, we've created new day and night map-schemes.
It's very important for us to hear what you think about them and whether you're satisfied.
Please try out the new schemes and tell us what you think.
<snip>
I've created a form where you can leave your feedback and it will be more easy for us to collect it.
Feedback on new map schemes

Thanks!


Thanks, Perlin, it's good to know you guys are listening! I've summarized my comments at the requested link, and offered to send an e-mail with screen caps showing what I'm talking about.

I doubt you'll ever come up with one option to satisfy everyone, so options are good. Very, very good!

So.. I'll leave my original post there so you can read it again, slower this time.

To summarize: I think there's only one night scheme in Waze. IE: Not a pair of schemes per setting. One night scheme.

And there is a great alternative night scheme in the URL provided.

I did not say the current Waze night scheme is good.


Thanks for the link, khaytsus. Based on that, I've begun modifying my night color scheme, and will probably end up with a mashup of the various ones people provided over there. I do have to remember to make a backup of what I end up with so I don't lose all my settings with the next beta or release version that comes out. Hopefully, Waze will see fit to give us some options for night scheme, too, and maybe even a "User customized" option that will be left behind during updates so we don't have to backup/restore manually each time there's an update.

Am I the only one still having text display issues?

This has been going on since the first 3.x beta. I've never heard a peep from anyone else about it.

I've been having issues with no network connection. Logs sent 7 Oct ~16:30 (GMT-5).

I'm not certain whether the issue is in Waze or with my phone. I had to reinstall the ROM & all apps a couple of weeks ago, and since then, I've had 3G network access issues. They seem to be more significant and lasting in Waze than any other app. I can get other programs to sync their data when I'm away from home & not on WiFi, but Waze just says "Searching network" now almost the entire time I'm driving. I reflashed the radio package I was using, and it seemed to work fine for a 3 day trip away from home (IN -> AL -> IN), but now that I'm back in state, I don't seem to be able to get a network connection in Waze.

Again, not certain if this is a waze issue or not, thus the delay in reporting it. Hopefully you may find something useful in the logs...

Issues again today.
First drive, went about 15 min, still no connection. Rebooted phone, got a network connection (no logs sent).
Second drive, went about 5 min, it suddenly connected. Logs sent ~14:40 (GMT-5).

I was really starting to think it's not Waze, until it suddenly decided to connect. Now, less sure where the problem is.
