Perhaps if you could explain to us why it needs to be changed. At present we have Avoid Freeways and Avoid Toll Roads which appears to suit virtually everyone.

UK example:
Freeway : "Avoid Motorways"
Major : "Avoid trunk roads"
Simple.

That's a fairly simplistic approach based on the neat way we've interpreted the road-types though. That will not be the norm.

I'd guess the majority of users would also have no idea what a trunk road is or the consequence of avoiding it ("Stupid Waze, I've avoided Trunk roads and now the app won't navigate from Land's End to John O'Groats!")

Yay, the state/country vs country/all countries issue is fixed.

Thank you Waze!

The attachment IMG_1751.PNG is no longer available

On ROW server you are supposed to see "country" and "all countries".
Can anyone (that not from US) confirm they still see "States/All states"?


This I was I see right now:

Can you provide a screenshot? Last time I checked it was centered.


Perhaps it's because on the UK we drive on the CORRECT side of the road :D

It's been like this since the first v3.5 beta.

I've found this on previous versions and reported it before. In some areas, the network speed is so poor that when Waze tries to send data back to the server for sending a report, it loses the heartbeat, or connection to the server because the network can't handle the traffic.


Yes I should clarify that in my experience this is not new for this beta, I'm not sure when it started, perhaps it's just gotten worse as more users came to Waze and it had more and more features added.

Either way the network connection for v3.x is nowhere near as stable as it was in 1.x and 2.x :cry:

Is this version a release candidate? I was just wondering as it doesn't install in Debug mode and beta has been removed from the splash screen ...


I'm still finding it very fussy when on a GPRS or EDGE network. It just seems to loose connection to the Waze servers; sometimes it shows the connection is lost or, sometimes it it shows you're connected but when you try and report something you get the "not connected" message. Despite not being connected to Waze I can use the net with other apps (eg speedtest.net) sometimes the only way to force it to reconnect is to toggle Airplane mode on and off, then it will connect immediately.

One of the things I liked about Waze back in the early days is how well it managed to download the maps whist driving with the slowest of connections but now it seems most at home on 3G, which sadly rules out most of the UK road network.

Is it only on fresh install? Can you try to upgrade again and check if it solves the problem?


No need, I went do do something that needed facebook and it seems that when first running this beta I had not been logged on correctly as I had this appear:
IMG_1749.PNG
IMG_1749.PNG (49.57 KiB) Viewed 1791 times


At this point I decided to go for a delete and reinstall. This time I logged in correctly and my Favourites came back as normal.

I've done a little playing around and this version works really well for me.

Still a few issues to fix:
1. Turn number for roundabouts still not centred:
2. Translation files for the UK English Translation (lang.eng_uk) have not been updated for Waze v3.5 as the following are missing which have been added to the US English file (lang.eng):
Code: Select all
duck=quack
duck-female=quack
geek-female=geek
sarcastic-female=sarcastic
shy-female=shy
sick-female=sick
ninja-female=ninja

So you get this:

3. I like the new scoreboard, but please can we please change the State/All States labels to Country/World (or similar) when outside of NA. I tried adding the following to the Language file but I guess it must be hard coded:
Code: Select all
State=Country
All States=World
