Feature Request: While going a "navigate to" there is a ETA window at the bottom center of the screen. When we are not doing a "navigate to", please display a digital clock at that location. A lime green color would be nice and in "settings" be able to change the default color.

Settings are always lost after clean installation. They are saved only upon upgrading.
Only favorites are saved on the server. Settings are saved on the app itself.

Ah-ha, you are correct. I almost always add as stop through categories, typically the gas station with the lowest price. If I try with a favorite the "proceed to highlighted" route does not occur.

Please send logs and mention the date & time of the problem.

This is entirely repeatable. It happens whenever I add a stop. However, I'm unable to send logs on this issue.

+1, with a total bug-free zoom management. Actually manual zoom level is changing with pop-up and not correctly restored !

Feature Request: Use a darker blue color to the inside of the "Menu" icon and add a bright yellow color to the inside of the "Report" icon. "Yellow" is the international color for alerts.

Feature Request
In France, some users use the "coyote" system.
it is a non-free systems that permits to alert on dangers on roads, traffic and so on.
Because exact localisation of police is forbidden, Coyote only alerts on danger area...
Now, we can find speed camera that calculate the average speed on a portion of road.
On Coyote, the system indicates in big on the screen (when the app is on phone device) the actual speed and the upper maximum speed you can reach if you want to be below the average limit.

On Waze, we need to declare the first police trap and the last one. After validation on the map, Waze will know the distance between the 2 points, and the speed limit.
Waze will be able to calculate the average speed of the car in real time between the 2 points and display the necessary informations on the screen.

I think it is urgent now that Waze takes in consideration these new kinds of police trap... France will have many of them in a near future.

Therefore I suggest that all popup windows fill the screen allowing for at least a matrix (5x8) of 40 selection icons. No need to have a scrollable box. In addition, on-screen icons for up to 4 shortcut icons such as "Heavy Traffic" that would "send" your report as soon as you press the shortcut. And of course, get rid of the annoying popup traffic reports.

+1
