There are two versions, one for VGA and one for WVGA. Have you tried both?

A minor bug: I have to push the cross app. 4 times to close the application. The other times the cross reacts by showing a white background briefly, but doesn't pop up the close dialogue.

After several days with the new client and many hours of continuous usage without crash, 1.9.99.301 crashed on me today. :(

It happened at the end of my trip. I closed down Flitsnav (an app that warns for speed cams) first, while Waze was still running, like I always do. The menu of Flitsnav, that opens with the bottom right softkey, normally has the normal WinMo layout, like most programs have. Now, the Flitsnav menu had a Waze layout (Waze menu colours, rounder edges like the Waze app menu, slightly different location on screen). Then, when Flitsnav was closed, Waze came up again, but the phone was frozen and Waze didn't respond.

I've seen this behaviour before, also in the older clients like 1.8.0. I've soft reset the device, restarted Waze and sent logs, so I hope the devs can make something from my description.

Still I must say, this client is far more stable than previous ones.

If I recall, we lose all saved settings - most important for me are the Favorites & Saved Locations...

No problem, i think the new version uses the files from the older version. But, to be sure, you need to back up the files as I described in this thread.

Hi Hooijack,

don't know about that one. Did you try changing any of the other parameters with font in the name in the same file? The comment button says Comm.. for me too.

Search for the line "Navigation Bar.Street Small Font: 17" and change the value from 17 to 14. Copy back to your device and start Waze. There are other parameters there that mention font. I didn't have time to see what they do.

Just to clarify: this edit only changes the size of the streetname in the navigation bar. And, it does it only when the name is long. So, when the streetname of the next navigation instruction is short, the client shows it with the normal big font. But, when the streetname is to long to fit in the screen, it will resize to the minimum of 14. If that isn't small enough for you, you could try a smaller value of 12 for instance.

Other than that, all good! :D

Today it was stable again, during my 1,5 hour trip. I didn't experience the problems urax describes.

So far, it's stable for me on my Diamond2 WM6.5. Great!

Some things worth mentioning:
  • The client warned me for all 6 speedcams I pass on my daily commute, where the old client would occasionally warn me for one or two. Is that due to the new client, or a parallel speed cam fix on the server?
  • The voice indications continue after I finish a phone call. The old client (v1.8.0 that is) would stay mute and require a restart for the sound to come back. Super!
  • The font is too big indeed. Many streetnames get cut off now. But hey, if that's the only thing...
