I got confused with all the numbers, but what he means, and is right, is that albeit it was mentioned that the "dialogue doesn't grow to keep the same size", but when when navigation is on, the dialogue does indeed grow, which is a conflict.

You're right. It does this in portrait too. I still think it's by design, but I'm not sure of the reason now. At the very least, it should be sized to fit the full icons and not cut them off.

Perlin, some of your old comercial releases had english as language option for navigation. Since you launched the TTS in Brazil we lost that option and we can only use portuguese.

I was looking forward to have that english option back again but it seems to keep as it is. The absence of language options is problematic for navigation in Brazilian's borders where all neighbours are spanish speakers. Anyone nows how small countries as Denmark or Belgium, for example, handle with such peculiarity?

Sorry if lost focus on this current beta.
Carlos.

I think the reasoning for showing part of an icon is the give you a visual clue there are more if you scroll across, my query relates to why that window size changes depending on what you are doing.

I surely hope not, I've been detecting issues with non translatable strings popping up. Not the case that the string doesn't yet exist on the translation file, but cases where even putting the string there won't translate it. The most obvious one is on navigate main screen, "categories", "favorites" and "pick up" are broken. Those are major regressions :(

Please contact Orit for all translation issues (translations@waze.com or orit@waze.com)

Permalinks of cameras locations?

This has nothing directly to do with translations files and Orit IMHO, but with the code of the client. Those three icons have text that is on the translations file (those three cases have always been there) but doesn't get translated on screen. It kind of feels like someone forgot to write the NSLocalizedString(string) or equivalent on the code. (The other missing strings I've been discussing with Orit already.)

Before 999, the new "Pick Up" button appeared and was untranslatable. "Pick Up" is on the translation, and the string works on the non beta client.
On 999 it got worse as "Categories" and "Favorites" also stopped being translatable. Those two strings are use in other places and are also working.

This has been bugging me ever since the updated network code in 3.0.1 ... If you accept a phonecall during Wazing, it fails to recover most of the times. Please fix this.
