Okay, now that I've had a chance to use it. I keep the theme set to night as it uses less juice that way. With the new version the "Next turn" bar at the top of the screen appears to have grown back towards the using a 3rd of the screen (not quite but more than a 4th) and is now opaque again. It was the first thing I noticed different when I fired it up. When you get close to the destination that bar pops up as well, it's still translucent but the two bars together took up nearly the top half of the screen (I use it in landscape mode rather than portrait.

This needs to be fixed again. It was annoying when 3.6 came out, then they fixed it, but now it's back to annoying, make it smaller and translucent. I did try the foursquare check-in and that was convenient. As others have noted the FB friends object is just a waste of space covering up map real estate, I wouldn't mind giving up that real estate for a speedometer but not for a a useless counter showing zero friends, heck it could show all 300+ friends I have on FB and it would still be worthless.

But the biggest problem I have is the navigation bar again being annoyingly big and opaque.

Device and OS are in my sig.

I still have crashes problems too. The app reboots itself many times, and no reports is possible...
(Xperia Pro (MK16i))

I will start debug mode, and send logs when that occurs.

Application close intent is missing in the new version. Now it can't be cleanly closed from Tasker-like automation apps.

Try and install again, this just means it didn't download correctly. If it continues to give this error, delete the prior version and reinstall new.

I uninstalled the app, deleted the folder Waze from a memory card, tried to install the new version 3.7.0.0 - error again :(

Text-to-speech is partially in English, partially in the selected language.

For example, when I select 'Flemish (Ellen)' for navigation guidance, I get with a Flemish voice :
"At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit"
but when I need to turn right somewhere, I get :
"Rechts afslaan" (turn right)

So something's really fishy here...

Any other suggestions?

It seems that the latest version turns off the device's screen timeout. From a reboot, my device will turn off the screen after 15 seconds. Without opening any other apps, if I open Waze, and then shut it down from the menu, my device will no longer turn off the screen (stays on indefinitely). Rebooting fixes it, but only until I open Waze again. I have a Galaxy III on AT&T, all stock.

I have no idea why - especially with a "new" version - that the same old bugs STILL EXIST!
Same old errors when trying to see scoreboard, app crashes when slowed/stopped.
Oh, but maybe the enhancement now is that when it crashes I am no longer prompted to upload logs. Maybe they were just annoyed that the logs kept getting uploaded.
I wouldn't mind having all of the enhancements - as long a new version actually fixed the base application - which the primary function of providing reliable functioning navigation.
