Editing street properties does not work, the app crashes after pressing the confirm button.

Hadn't noticed any battery issues, but same here, exit is clean now with this version. :)

Woah, you can EDIT from the client now!? Is this new, or maybe I just noticed the Properties function?

It has been working quite well for me, during the summer, but recently I started getting reboots while navigating as well. I haven't found a pattern yet other than I think it crashed at the same place twice, will check that tomorrow.

I found a little bug in the new version 1.8.99.105. If you go to the Scoreboard and try to enter your Facebook name and password it doesn't allow any text. First it takes forever with the "Loading" message and when it displays the FB screen, you can click on the fields for name and pw, but it doesn't open the on-screen keyboard and if you use the Milestone hardware keyboard you can't enter any text.

PS: Trying the alternative login screen doesn't work too.


I get the same behavior on my HTC Desire. If I click the back button it seems like there is another box of some kind behind the loading box because a single click just remove a drop shadow behind the loading box. Another back click leave me at the connect page without any possibility to enable the keyboard.

It got much worse for me after my phone was upgraded to 2.2 yesterday. Worked for about 5 minutes of a 30 minute drive to work this morning. I have had to pull the battery out of the phone at least 5 times today. Was working ok before 2.2, pretty much unusable at this point.

Downgraded to version 1.5.2 yesterday and actually now wazing is fun again on my HTC Hero!

What happened in v1.9 that made it so much slower even when all fancy stuff is disabled? Will the v2.0 be faster or will it only fix crash issues?

Lot of crash reports here. Mine in just slooooow (HTC Hero 2.1). After clicking menu button or on the screen it takes 5-10 seconds before it responds. Phone and other apps are running ok.

Yeah the only thing I can say in defense of Waze is that the fault actually lies within Android. If an app can make the phone crash (it reboots because it notes a crash in a vital part of the operating system, basically the same thing as the famous bluescreen in windows) it is not the app's fault, it is the fault of the OS. It is supposed not to permit any app doing anything that makes the phone crash (if you rooted, superuser apps are a different thing, but Waze got nothing to do with that anyway).

Unfortunately fixing something in the Android OS takes at least a few months and you can never know whether all manufacturers give the update to all their phones. So the only thing that can be done is that the waze team investigates and fixes what causes the bug in the phone. Even if it is not their fault. I hope they manage to do that soon.
