I really could care less about finding them when out of town too. I'd like to know where Starbucks is, but then if I search for Starbucks (without the local city/state) I get hits from everywhere. How does the search function not know where I am? Really lol


I seen an "R" icon on my map advertising a Ramada Inn, 60 miles away! They need to have these adds only appear if you are driving in the area and are at a zoomed in level. Also, I think Waze should display the "zoom" level on-screen.

Preach it brother!


Let me expand on this issue. Other people who do not use Waze ride with me in my car. My Dell Streak 5 phone has a 5 inch screen and is mounted in the middle of my dashboad. Before the pop-ups appear, they are very impressed with my navigation app. Once the pop-ups appear, they start talking about how they like their app better. Recently, Waze started to sell advertising icons that appear on the map. The more people that install and use Waze, the more money can be generated through advertising. Waze is a great concept. But you need to remove anything that could discourage its use. There, now I have preached it!

So everyone gets these pop ups when driving, which might I add are so freaking annoying, but from time to time the pop ups with a traffic alert won't go away. Half of the alert stays over top of the Navigation Directions at the top of the screen. It's really annoying and the only way to remove it is to stop and start the program, which cause the extra nightmare of relaunching your navigation.

I'm just guessing: it looks like a network issue. Maybe try another network? Is your network perhaps using a proxy that's causing problems? I have no idea other than that.

My HTC one X is on 4.1.1 too. No crashes whatsoever. So it's not the OS per sé.

I do not recall the combination of this version of Waze and galaxy S3 as being problematic, but truth be told I own an HTC.

Maybe you should do some troubleshooting for your specific device? Is it a cooked or stock rom? Is it on both WiFi and other networks? Is your sd card ok? You didn't install to sd did you? Do you use other programs at the same time? Do other apps use GPS properly? Are you very far from a location that might be autosuggested to you (home, work etc)? Maybe another G3 user can comment on issues with this specific device?

To the last two posters: please try removing all application settings and cache and temp files from the applications menu, then removing Waze app, then remove the entire Waze folder on sd and after that a clean reinstall from play store.

Thanks for a great app! Hope I can contribute a little this way!

Please proceed to the Dutch country forum. There's a dedicated thread there for Dutch translation. Let us know there in which screen this occurs, or if possible post a screenshot. Thanks!

It's not getting lost, as I'm following everything you wrote and take it under consideration.

Will waze.uservoice.com be taken down then?

Really, this isn't feature request thread. We have the uservoice system for that. Don't bother putting that here as it will just get lost.
