However, I'm a bit miffed that after looking at them and deciding that I don't like them, when I go back to the "Map editors" color scheme, I still get "test" as the night scheme.
Isn't there only one night scheme? Or does changing the day theme also change the night theme? AFAIK there's only one, and it's been changed.

However, this one is the bomb, IMO. I'm loving the look, just wish I had a better way to refresh it when Waze updates.

Obviously we are smoking different stuff. IMO current night mode colour scheme is atrocious beyond imagination. Not to mention premature degradation of OLED screens.

This, very much! It's not quite so annoying to have to hit the little 'x', I guess I've started to get used to it already, since it's the only option on so many dialogues in the new betas, but a "No" or "Cancel" button would be much nicer.

Also, sometimes, it's so slow to come up with the "Are you heading to ..." that I've already started to select a different location to navigate to, and this pops up and overrides what I was already entering. It can take so long, that I can already be typing in an address to navigate to when it asks if I'm heading to Home, thus wiping out the portion of the address that I've already entered. I suppose the delay is fine, however, before that pops up, it needs to check to ensure that I'm not already in the destination selection dialogue system before it pops that up. Actually, it should probably ensure that I'm not actively "doing" something (i.e. any where in the menus) before it pops this up, and if I'm already into navigation, it shouldn't pop up at all.

hi to all

there are some of my notes:

- when share location with someone (1rst person), and then wish to pick-up someone else (2nd person), the first person can't see me anymore (error - request cancelled)
the second person have an error - can't find your location - when open link on PC (may be in this case this person should just see me on the map?)


- share my ride:
1 - there is a choice:
a) by text message (SMS)
b) by email: and here you have again to choose:
b1) by gmail
b2) by skype

the firs issue is that "share by skype" does not work, nothing happens (the first time i need to sign in to skype), then, sharing again, nothing happens, there is not contact list where i can choose a person to share, and my skype status doesn't change the secons is that may be skype must be between text messages and not between emails

- "red wazer" (see photo below) behind "DEBUG" word [already noticed]; when i tap on it, the red wazer dissappears - i think it is bug

- is it possible to make upper instructions box - smaller (may be by cutting off some millimeters on the inferior board) or to make it more trasparent?

- sometimes the left menu icon dissapears, copule of time it happened when i parked after reaching my destination (see image attached)

- too much menu settings when in navigating mode, need to be reorganized and reduced


- better route find: is really annoying because:
-- impossible to close
-- can't see on the map or to see any details because while driving is dangerous for driver
-- "better" route has arrival time later than the route i currently driving, in preferences i choosed "fastest" way.. so why i get a suggestions for a "better" root which is really worth?


thank you

It is not a ghost. I just means your share is being transmitted/shared.
no no, i didn't start any sharing
and the "ghost waze" is barred....

This is an expected result. If you share your ride with someone and then start a route- his link will be broken.


actually... firstly i start route, than share route with first person.. then wish pick-up a second person... i see that in this case my route will be modified....
but i think that may be it is possible to modify already created route (for example, it may happens if occurs an accedent by the way and a road will be closed so waze will recalculate my route) without cancel links i already shared?

- forget about a tunnel problem... still need solutions which continue to ride with the same speed a road you drive before gps signal is lost... when the exit is just after the end of tunnel... waze don't give instructions because it "doesnt know" where i am ...

I wonder why you say that because you can close it, there's a little X on the right upper side. Maybe you've missed it?
both: 1 - miss it and 2 - TOO SMALL to see and to tap.. and many times when i tap it.. nothing happens... so probably i miss it...

This is frequently the case when not on hightways !
Is it not already available? It is on the current iOS beta. Try it. I've already added it to the voice commands thread. Check your asr_cmd file and search for stopped to see how it is implemented. On earlier beta, the implemented the full command as "car stopped on road" instead of "car stopped" being a sub-type of the "on road" hazards.
