Auto mute the voice guidance while you are driving and in conversation on your mobile with warning beep will be great.

I noticed that when I started the client at 7.45am, it shows night mode.

After driving for awhile, when the time shows 9.12am, the app should automatically
switch over to day mode but it's not switching over. [I've checked my client is set to auto]

If I shutdown the client and restart it back, it has no problem switching over to day mode.

Exciting version with lots of new features and improvements!
We're very proud to release you this first beta of a new version we've worked hard on. It contains new features and improvements for old ones, that you guys requested to see.
Try out this version, drive with it, experience it and send us your feedback.
In addition to bugs & problems, we also want to know what you think about the integration with FB events and the new look of the map.
More exciting features are coming next version!

What's new

1. Map changes
Tilted reports: reports on the map are tilted to the direction of the road
Navigation line: new navigation line, displays road labels with names of streets on the route.
Less street names on the map: map is "cleaner", street names are shown only for roads you cross + city names.
Exception: when panning the map, all street names are shown.

2. Integration with FB events: when replying "Attending/Maybe" to an FB events, it will automatically integrate with waze and will be added to the navigate screen (12 hours before the event starts). When selecting the event you are requested to verify its address. 2 hours before the event starts, a message will pop, asking you if you want to drive there.
3. New inbox: includes multiply message selecting (in order to delete or mark as read) and a possibility to reply.
4. ASR (voice activation)
New activation method: double wave (wave twice, back and forth). This is to avoid false activating when hovering the hand above the screen.
More commands: you can now say "thanks" and "not there" on alert popups

5. Hazard alert popups display the type of hazard
6. New suggested-route popups: displays only "Yes/No" when asked if you want to drive somewhere (work/home)
7. New moods: cat and dog
8. Mute: mutes all sounds (including popup alerts)
9. Events on route: under "Events radius" you can select "On route only" (it's finally working server-side).

Known issues
Mute button also mutes the ASR
ASR- has some difficulties understanding the commands. If it doesn't understand specific words you try to say- please tell me which ones.
500ft turn notification happens at 1000ft
Reports tilt to incorrect side of the road on left-hand traffic countries
Can't remove an history item from recent searches

It gives you the options to: (1) receive messages that are sent to you by other users during/after login-off + replying to them (2) receive messages from our end
Wajo357 wrote:'Events on Route' - On one hand, I like seeing all of the events in my area, but at the same time I care more about the events on my route. Can we somehow, graphically, differentiate the 2?

Events that on your route contain the wording "X min head on route"
Wajo357 wrote:On one of the previous betas, there was a non-functional report button for a roadblock. Has that feature been dropped altogether?

Not at all! We're almost finished working on that feature and it will be released in the next beta.

Thanks, it will be fixed.

porubcan wrote:you considering to have possibility to report event for both directions? e.g. weather is mostly the same for both lanes?

Yes.
porubcan wrote:when we will have road shields available in Slovakia? or what actions we should take in order to get them?

You'll need to ask the support team.
porubcan wrote:what about special moods for editors

We're still working on it.
porubcan wrote:I was pretty happy to have navigation instructions muted and still got audible alert for reports, please give users option to set it the way user prefer

Since a lot of users dislike the new sound behavior, we will consider to change that.
porubcan wrote:We still miss address when reporting gas prices (INTL)

We haven't fixed it yet.
porubcan wrote:In previous version after you reported prices there were two ways to close the confirmation window.. now both act same way - return to nearby GS list

We will fix it.
porubcan wrote:First start of new client (first run after upgrading) - Settings for Gas Stations & Prices missing in Settings menu. after 2nd start of new version - it is ok.

This setting derives directly from the server (not the client) and since it takes a few seconds to establish a network connection, it also takes time for this menu to appear.
porubcan wrote:isn't there any way to adjust visual for bigger screens (like on my 4.7" OneX)?

We're working on it.

I'm not following you. What do you mean "Fuel Price' notification while refueling"?
