This may be related to system resources. Waze is much improved for me as long as I restart the phone every day after applying updates. Background processes are the usual Android, plus antivirus, plus Whatsapp. Free RAM after restart is approx 120MB.


THIS! I restart the phone every day now. Otherwise after some waze launches it keeps loosing GPS all the time. After restart all is ok. For a day. However I did not see such behavior with other apps. So I believe waze is breaking something in gps settings for some time.


You can try running free apps like "Fast Reboot" to free resources and GPS keep alive app or something like Tasker. My Tasker is setup so every time I run apps like Waze, Google maps and other GPS location service is required automatically enables GPS.

Although this update has made the Waze smooth on my three year old phone. For some reason it started to bog down on the first version but it's been very smooth since.

We are now changing the looks of the alerts, so it will be more convenient. The "x" is going to be bigger.

3.5 version was updated through Play store, no problems. Navigated to work fine this morning.
I saw the Waze Google+ posting on "Robin" and decided to install it to play around later. Selected Waze integration while briefly looking at it at work, and shut it down.

Later when starting Waze to verify a menu option for someone. Waze just would not start, as it could not connect. I was connected on Wi-Fi at the time, so thought it was a network issue. Switched Wi-Fi off & tried 3G. Still the same - Waze could not connect to the network. A colleague verified that he connected fine, so I cleared Wazes data from Apps settings.
Voila, that worked ! Looks like Robin broke my Waze, but I'll figure that out later..

When I drove back home, I obviously had to set ASR back on as all my setting was toast. Restarted and set course home, and then Serena said in her finest English voice "Lets get streeteted".
I thought I heard wrong, but looked at the TTS files when I got back. The TTS in both files that says 'started' are pronounced as 'streeteted'.

It looks like 'St' is now overcompensated for after being pronounced as Saint all over. It's probably a good thing that Serena did not tel me to get "Saint-eted". That would have ended my editing career.

Here's the links to both files on my dropbox public folder as I cannot upload .tts to the forum :
Let's get streeteted.
Let's get streeteted. Drive Safely.

We should really get TTS sorted if there is no form of whitespace between word abbreviations. 'N1' is not 'North One'. Fine if it was 'N 1' is, but parsing text can seriously be improved.
Better get streeteted on fixing this asap.

Thanks, we are checking this issue.

When I begin to move again, the map stay in the place it was, instead of focus on my car again as before. I have to click on the icon to make the map follow me again, but everytime I stop It does the same again.

So it makes the navigator almost useles in town...

Im using android 2.3.4 on a LG Optimus 2x (p990).

Please send logs (in debug mode). Thanks.

Do you have a permalink? I would assume that the average speed on the two roads is different so 29km/h may be 39% or 41% of normal average. I'm not sure if the levels for the different colors are documented somewhere.


Arrow 1 is the red traffic, according to the direction of the little red arrow.
Arrow 2 is the yellow traffic, where I was on !

Traffic is the same (we were all in the similar traffic jam), our speeds are the same...
