Wow... What can I say, the biggest update since I started using Waze?

- Performance increment, very very noticable!
- Very nice graphics, much better! No more blended together roads! Labeling is much better.
- Ability to turn off the road goodies, thank you!
- Ability to force a refresh of the map tiles - much appreciated! (Does not seem to work for me though - what area does it refresh, maybe mine is too big?).
- Mood icon update :).
- iPad support - too bad I don't have mine yet..

Very nice, I can only hope my iPhone reboot problems are gone now, I guess I'll find out soon enough :twisted: .

I can confirm this one.

After switching, it won't be effective immediately though, it requires a restart of the app.

New bug (not there/reproducable with 1.8.0.2):

When the auto-suggested route dialog pops up, and you dismiss it, it starts navigating towards the auto-suggested destination with a slight delay anyway (even when you selected another destination).

Feature request:
Waze is not multitasking aware in iPhone OS4 (it does not continue my route while being backgrounded).

It's that ugly, out-of-place counter on the upper right side of the screen ('Accessing network...', '1234Kb', etc.)

:) Very good. I was just logging in to ask if the version stamp was wrong. Mine downloaded the language pack just now, but when I checked the version stamp it seemed to still be 1.8.99.7.


Mine says 1.8.99.8 though

I've recently upgraded to 4.0 (b4), and no more iPhone reboots while using Waze (so far...). Might be worth a shot.

I really can't reproduce this anymore since 1.8.99.7.

Hey guys!

I haven't forgotten about you—I got the email and installed the beta version. BUT! The GPS in my iPhone stopped working! :(

I'm in the market for a new one in a month or so, so I'll be back. I'm so glad to hear that the map view has been improved!

UPDATE: 1.8.99.8 does not launch on my iPhone 3G. Crashes after a couple seconds on the load screen every time. I've tried restarting.
