I have had this exact same issue a few times. It's very annoying because it only happens with Waze. No other application causes this to happen.

Here is how I fix it most times. I lock the phone with the toplock button and then unlock it again after a couple of seconds. About 75% of the time the screen is fine. The other 25%... well that requires me having to power the phone down completely and restart it again. :cry:

Oops, you beat me to it. Bingo. I almost didn't buy the N1 because of this and other problems with the touchscreen..

When trying to report a problem on the bottom half of the Nexus One while in Waze, i am often presented with reporting a 'foursquare check-in' report, though i'm trying to report a 'chit chat'. It usually takes several tries to get to the 'chit-chat' report. Once i'm in to the chit chat, i want to enter a description, so i tap the description text box (near the top of the screen). No problem. I'm in the text box now, the keyboard pops up. Now i'm not using the android keyboard but Swype (you swipe to each letter in the word to create your text). Now i feel this way because in the Swype keyboard you can half your Swype path be recorded. When i start typing any key away from the bottom of the keyboard, that touch input is immediately recorded as a touch at the bottom of the screen. I assume this is what is happening when i am in the 'select reports' screen as well (why i get a foursquare check-in report when i want a chit chat).

This is hard to explain but is anyone else experiencing a similar issue on your Nexus One with Waze? This has not happened in any application besides waze since i've had this Nexus One (3 months).

Yeah, that sounds like "Nexus One Screwy ClearTouch2000". Touch one spot, registers elsewhere.

Next time it happens, go into standby for a second, hit power again.. Unlock as needed. Is it fixed?

I see this periodically, but not at all restricted to just in Waze.. In fact not sure I've ever seen it in waze.

Things i noticed on .105

1) it might heat my milestone a little more than older versions
2) it would hang after a marking an uncharted road, or randomly too

I wanted to try the beta because on the last official version i suddenly became unable to connect (i had gps, but no network).

ps: also, i think Maps in Argentina ara "a little to the east" compared to the real world :P

Ah, that's unfortunate. I have waited to root my phone so far because I had read about people having calibration issues. My phone was only a couple months old when I was having issues with it. I've had the replacement now for 2 or 3 months with no further issues.

I've heard of similar reports with the touchscreen that were not specific to Waze, but related to the phone being docked (or was it when on power?!). Do you use a dock? Is the phone powered? Could you test without the power cord attached?

I have had no problems similar to this. It sounds like it's a calibration issue, though you said you're only having this problem in waze, so that's a bit strange....
