Phone Vodafone 858
Slow phone in general

Issues...
portrait to landscape rotation
2D view causes immediate crash
3D view cases wrong car icon position and crashes further navigation.

in many situations recalculate route ends with Timeout Error even Iphone or Nokia apps works well at same moment. Only solution at these moments is stop driving and when app has free cpu (no map redrawing) and search route again.

App at all is very slow (beta is significantly faster but still not as fast enough).

Sometimes car Icon is 1 or more KM behind my real location. Sometimes it catches me back, sometimes it causes app hang (black screen)

In conclusion i am missing 2 options
Auto Rotate lock in settings (fix portrait / landscape issue could be tricky)
options for dumb slow phones or have waze basic version as it is on nokia. It has reasonable design, it is stabile and fast on significantly worse HW-

Installation and first looking around is OK... and personally would appreciate the default zoom to "streets" level.

still maplagging when navigating. Just turned on, it seems to be fine, had only one small lag. I still think that this lagging is caused by my phone's (already insufficient? :( ) HW. Wildfire has e.g. no GPU.... and the last version with real-time responsivness was the one in my sig.

After several days of using, the performance improved a lot (within the same version? hmmm :) ) so currently the app is pretty usable on my phone as well, though it happens sometimes that once waze loses data connection (don't know why as my area is completely covered, sometimes waze disconnects after sending road report) it is unable to retrieve connection. Recently it managed to do so, but it took 15 minutes ;)

In friends the all button migrates to the middle and it is clickable in this position.


I cannot confirm this behaviour. The scoreboard looks fine on my Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro in either Portrait or Landscape mode.

Hi,

Thanks for your work.

When using the navigation search box there still is not a "go" button after using speech input.

You have to tap on the text field, then tell waze you are a passenger, then hit return to use search after speaking a destination.

The email that gets sent to the report does already say that it may be a few days before they see the changes on their app.

There are a few other things that we might need to help facilitate the use of TTS in the UK. We collected some suggestions here: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=15538

Hi Guys,

My wazee goes into infinite loop on the search page if I do the following on my HTC Incredible 2:
- In Trip advisor ( http://bit.ly/HittvR ) I tap on an address
- Wazee search page starts
- I tap on the destination

And afterthat the search page come back again. I cannot hide the search page or shutdown the application.
