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

Thank you Waze!

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!")

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.

I'll be updating the translations tonight if I remember. I was meant to do it last week, so it's my fault the UK one isn't updated. Sorry guys.

Have you iOS people had the closure button removed too? Waze, can you give some insight as to why? I was REALLY looking forward to seeing this in 3.5, and it would be a real game changer!

My guess is that it WAS a closure, which if on the suggested route you come across one, as you say, the next turn would be cancelled and thrown onto the map like a traffic report with the Not There button, or just drive through it to clear it.
Shame they got rid :-(

Hence the reason I translated UK to "Avoid Motorways" ;-)

No, we DO give users the option and use the translation strings for description. Simple!
UK example:
Freeway : "Avoid Motorways"
Major : "Avoid trunk roads"
Simple.

That's probably true, although we seem to have taken the approach in the UK and applied it very generally with pretty strict guidelines, which works very very well imo. :)

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"?


Yes, here in the UK if you select All countries, it becomes all states when it shows the world scores.
