Day/Night mode setting restore

Post by Colonel667
Hi guys.

I'd like my previous setting to be restored when I have the automatic mode disabled.
Wanna save battery on my AMOLED display, so I prefer the night mode even during the day.
But every time I start Waze it starts in day mode.

(I'm on Android 2.3.3, currently using the latest Waze beta.)

So you are saying you have automatic night mode under Map settings turned Off, and under the main settings page you have mode set to Night, but each time you start the app, it reverts to day, correct?

I was sitting inside and didn't open up Waze to check. I now have and, "Doh!" the current iPhone release also suffers from this issue. I have added this to the iPhone known issues list. Not sure if you want to add this for the Android as well... Haven't decided for myself even whether we use Known Issues for beta clients, but I imagine the current Android release also suffers the same.

It would be good to know if this same issue exists on the current release (non-beta) Android client. I believe that the Known Issues page should be about in-production stuff, not test.

Yup, this is what I mean.

Dunno how do add it to known issues list, though.
And right now I'm in a hurry to get drunk. :mrgreen:

So please add it, if you know better what you're doing than I.
Thanks and happy St. Paddy's Day!

Hi,

I can also confirm that when driving in day mode, with Auto turned on the map will not automatically change to night mode. It just continues to sit there is day mode.
Requires a shutdown of Waze and restart and it will then start in Day mode until the sat connection is active and then switches to night mode..

So noting automatic about it either!

It switches automatically for me too, only about 15 minutes later than I would switch myself.

I just tested it on my non-beta Android release (2.0.3.0) and it is the same behavior mentioned above. It switches back to day mode every time the app is reopened and Automatic Night Mode is off.
