Ever since 1.8.99 version Waze has been losing GPS connectivity. Android status shows GPS connected, and GPS icon shows green in Waze, but it starts using cell location instead. This happens very often (probably twice in a 10km run), and the only way I've found to fix is to either restart Waze or disable and reenable GPS in Android, neither of which is a very good solution when driving. Sometimes (very rarely) Waze picks it up again by itself. Android 2.1 (HTC Hero, VanillaDroid 3.0).

[edit] While it may seem that it's a problem with the Android build I'm using, it does not seem to be - Google Maps never loses GPS connectivity.

You could do that before using 'Report' -> 'Update map' -> 'Update details'

Got that same problem over here too. After quitting the waze icon in the status bar is still there. Starting waze new and exit immediately closes waze as should.

After my GPS on my Touch Pro 2 broke down a few days ago, I bought the Galaxy S today, installed Waze on it, but I noticed it has several problems.

For one, whenever you have to input text, whereever (like usernames, passwords and such also), you can not use backspace when you make a typo. It also remembers the data you put in, so you have no way of redoing it if you have saved it accidentally.

Now, whenever I start Waze, my phone freezes and after a while it either resets itself or I have to remove the battery if it doesn't reset. It is impossible to use Waze with this phone apparently... kind of sad because it is a killer phone imho.

Soooo no Waze for me for the time being.. the Galaxy S can't use Waze and my TP2 has no working GPS anymore (which actually happened after installing the WM2.0 Beta version, but I doubt that had anything to do with it.. I had GPS problems before, and that phone was dropped quite a few times by my baby girl (no worries, this new phone will be kept away from her by miles lol)).


The backspace is a swype bug on NON standard text boxes (waze 2.0 will abandon the custom textbox, so that will "fix" it in the future). You can always use a diferent keyboard, or in waze options deactivate the phones keyboard (that will leave you with an UGLY waze kb, but backspace will work, just for waze, of course).

If your galaxy S already has android 2.2, you should wait before using waze, until 2.0 is released, if not, dunno, i was able to use waze more or less ok on 2.1
