Groups and Scoreboard

Post by CTCNetwork
Hi,

Any reason that both Groups and Scoreboard do not work on the phone app?

Using a SE Xperia X1 for the time being.

Do you know what version of waze you are using? I'm not familiar with the Windows mobile version but there should be a "Help" or "About" in one of the menus that should give you the version number!

Hi,

Waze Release 2.0.0.0
Working on WinMobile 6.5

Only downloaded and installed a couple of days ago.. :)

Mind you I will be getting my HTC Desire Z soon and installing on there too. But back to reality...

Hi,

Devices that their operating system is WinMobile can not enter through their device to groups and scoreboard, because the operating system doesn't support it.
You can see the scoreboard and the groups in the website of Waze in http://www.waze.com/dashboard/ or in http://world.waze.com/dashboard/

Hi,

Thanks Corin for that.

A little annoying when you get one of those green message at the top of the screen on the phone telling you how to get extra point by checking the scoreboard and "My tab" as there is neither.

Also, I have just noticed, there is a difference between my position when I log onto "world.waze.com/dashboard" and "www.waze.com/dashboard". Is there a reason for this?

Hi,

Hmmm... I can type www in Europe!
Does this mean the US and Canada is not in the world? Or just not in our world? :)

Given I'm in Europe, and can log into my dashboard with www prefix and with the "world" subdomain shouldn't the information I receive be replicated? No matter how I logged in?
Shouldn't there be a common frame of reference for everybody?

Also bear in mind that if you are on the forums and try to head back to the dashboard or maps it will default to www and not world as the forums are held on the former!

Yes indeed and you end up back at the "wrong" dashboard! And using a VPN to some other country I suppose doesn't help!! :D

Mapping is, of course, a higher priority for the time being.. :)

And if you add scoreboard after the url, you go directly to the scoreboard :P

Yes, the integration could be better. People often complain about having to log in multiple times. But I think Waze has more important issues to concentrate on.
It never happened to me that I was redirected to world.waze.com, but indeed: there are many more important issues than the website itself.
