I don't think it's a great use of screen space because there are two icons for a single Wazer: their mood icon plus their fb picture. Can we just have the fb icon?

Alan, is that someone you know, or are friends with on Facebook?

When they first put the little Facebook icons on the screen, I was able to click on any Wazer with that icon and get their picture and real name. I reported it to Perlin and then that stopped happening, and I believe I even found others on the map that I was facebook friends with and still couldn't get that info that easily.

I wonder if that problem has returned.

Hmmm.... Maybe I'm not familiar with that small button. What happens to me, that I recall is: 1. I tap "No", 2. Tap "passenger", 3. Tap "No" and the cursor moves to the first fuel type to update.

I admit it has been a while since I have had to do this, so in the beta, maybe the procedure has changed?

You can tap the fuel type, but as soon as you start typing, the usual "passenger/OK" box will come up. If you've dismissed this message in the past during the current driving session, the passenger/OK box won't appear here. But it will appear anywhere, anytime you try to type while moving, regardless of whether it's a map issue post, hazard, or fuel price. It's a standard feature of the app.[/quote]

Hi Alan

I get that, especially with it being a safety feature and it wasn't quite what I was getting at. When you are inputting the prices after dismissing the 'passenger' box, the next button on top of the keypad is tiny and impossible to tap in a moving car even if you are a passenger. removing it would be more sensible as you can just tap the next fuel type to input the price. The send button top right would just make more sense aesthetically and probably ergonomically if it was moved to the bottom center of the fuel price box once you have input the price change.

Well... there is a reason two taps on Stop are needed. 1st: to stop navigation so that you don't get constant reroutes and other noise when close to destination and you might be snaking through a parking lot, etc. Once you arrive at your location, though, you still may want to drop the parking pin and/or notify friends, etc. It's convenient for that bar to remain in place. That is, at least, what I believe is the reasoning here. I'm not sure I 100% agree with it, but I understand it.

an add to Alanoftheberg's post, when you are nearing your destination when navigating and you get the black top bar appear, you have to tap the stop navigation icon twice to make it disappear, surely this would be better as a single tap...

also when I've opened the menu to pick a navigation destination, the app quite often pops up an automatic 'are you driving to' popup, which is invariably not where I am going to, surely all popups should be suppressed in the client while there is a menu open? this happens before I start moving as well as when I am.

Now a personal one, the send button for petrol prices, would it not be better placed bottom center of the window after the prices have been changed, as in the same position as 'are these prices correct yes/no'. and while on the petrol price thing, the next button is stupidly hard to tap in a moving car even if you are a passenger, it's just way to small and probably not needed anyway as you can tap the fuel type.

thanks for listening

I'm sure it's already too late to ask this, but it would be really nice if the sharing features could be more persistent than they are today.

Simply said, the sharing and the orange wazer should remain valid until an explicit turn-off of the client via menu or kill, or some kind of stop-sharing new menu.

At the moment the sharing gets killed quite easily as soon as I press the iPhone home button and open some other application that starves the memory and makes iOS kill Waze, which is quite easy to happen if the Geocaching and Safari+Gmaps is used.

When that happens, Waze asks me to restart the route, but won't reenable the sharing. And obviously no one is gonna send a share request everytime this happens.

More complaints about the pop-up notifications when stopped.

#1 City with no road information is useless. These should never pop up. There is no point and serve to make the users mad. They has posted this frustration anger repeatedly in the forums.

#2 A pop-up with no street is bad enough. But a pop-up with no street and no city? This should absolutely never appear in the app. Never ever never ever.

[ img ]


#3 Popups should resize automatically either in window size or font size to actually include all the information necessary. Having the text truncated serves to make this popup, like the ones above, pretty much useless as the important information is missing and not available.

[ img ]


#4 "Are you going home/work?" popup when I am already there. Clearly, I am really, really close to home. Waze should NOT prompt me to drive home when I am already there. A minimum radius needs to be set, perhaps a 1/4 mile or 1/2 mile or so, where this popup is suppressed.

I'd quite like the 'on route only'/'distance' for the alert pop-ups to work...
