It'll be superb if we have the option to change the font size. Font size too big for my small screen. The "Comment" button has become "Comm.." on my device.
Other than that, all good! :D

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.


Hi deeggo,
Thanks! But I was hoping to change the font size for comments instead. Comments are most of the time useless because I can only see first 2-3 words instead of the whole comment.

Any way of upgrading from 1.8.0 to this version without losing my current Favorite and Saved locations ?

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

Looking forward to trying 1.9.99.301!

Thanks

I wanted to check to see if it was possible to enable the WM version of Waze to display the maps in 3D like the Android version can do... On my TP2 I can dual boot into either WM or Android. I've installed the Android version and it looks awesome in 3D... I wasn't sure if it was a limitation of the OS or not... Thanks...

BTW this is a must have app!!! The Devs have done some awesome work!

Sorry if this was the wrong thread to post to... Did not see any topics on improvements...

3D maps are an option on Windows mobile also. Go to the Settings menu (wrench) then look for the line that says Display (should be the second one there). The 2D is a button you can click that will toggle the map between 2D and 3D.


walkerb52,
Thanks for the reply... I checked under settings and do not see a Display option nor a 2D/3D option... In the Android version it is right on the first screen. I only see Guidance and Daylight options...

BTW... I've been running the new beta and it has been very stable thus far...

Bobnuts - the UK map is not by any means complete, so you would need to use something else for door-door routing. Once the basemap import is done then it should be usable here in the UK.

Hi,
thank you for the updates for WinMo not lasting that long as earlier.
One question though: How about the scoreboard? Will we ever see it on WinMo?

Regards

Hi,
the option to change 2d/3D exists in WinMo but not in the WVGA version.

Hi,
expect version 2.0 for WM (disregard the number, look at the features, even 1.9.99.x doesn't have features existing in lower numbered Iphone versions) when 2.4 for Iphone is online :roll:
Seriously: Only waze know (if anyone at all) but there were posts indicating the next WM version might show up in September/October. But don't hold your breath...

Regards
