I got the same random crash issues with 1.9.0.0 and Froyo 2.2 (official HTC Desire update). Guess Waze team needs to rework the Android client a bit more.

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.

Guess I have to eat my words. In the past three days waze has gone from never crashing at all to rebooting my phone. I wouldn't call it unusable (yet, at least), but it has crashed twice in the past few days.

Great.

I've gone the other way. I had Waze running today for about 40 minutes, driving around, recording new roads, and it didn't crash once. Strange!

:lol:

I've tried to figure out a reasoning behind who experiences crashes and who doesn't, but it seems there's no rhyme or reason!

I suspect that mine can be at least partially attributed to updating to Android 2.2 a couple of weeks ago... but waze worked perfectly fine for a week or two afterward. Just now started crashing. Who knows... :|

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.

Can't wait for Version 2.0! I can feel it! Hoping any day now! I wanna join groups! Despite being area manager I use Android so I couldn't even make the group for my area. In a way it's good because it is encouraging that there are so many other active Wazers in Winnipeg too! :)

Wish I had as much faith in them as you do.

Now I, like others, would be happy settling for an updated version that just actually WORKS. I tried to use waze on a drive yesterday... tried five separate times to open it, and every single time it made my phone reboot completely. Ridiculous. I finally gave up. Maybe it'll work today, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

after some experiments (all on android 2.2), i now know that the first time i run waze after changing my phone ROM, and wiping cache and dalvik-cache, i can make one "long" (30 to 40 minutes) trip.

then it all goes weird and i have constant reboots.

if i keep waze minimized it does not reboot my phone :/

any day now is getting way to long now for a new version :(
