Hmm weird. I went from the official 188.8.131.52 straight to 184.108.40.206, and I had the problem with the preferences (multiple times, right after I installed it). I've used 220.127.116.11 for a couple of days now, and they open perfectly.
Maybe the bug wasn't really connected to a specific version, but more to the "switch" from the official release to the beta. I don't know… could it be related to the cache or pref file that needed to be updated to include the new options?
I have noticed something minor that I have not seen before. When I launch Waze with the Iphone (3G) on it's side in landscape mode, Waze still launches in portrait and will not correct itself. If I stand the phone up then turn it back on it's side it works fine or of course works fine if I started it upright before turning it on its side. I know this is minuscule but I am just sharing what I am seeing.
I like the exclusive moods, was wondering if they are being displayed on the mobile map with users of older versions? The 18.104.22.168 version has only crashed on me once other then that it has been running smoothly. Keep up the good work.
Love the way things are looking in general, I continue to see more wazers in my area !
