Same in the UK between around 1730 and 1830GMT - Waze consistently reporting no network even after a few restarts on my phone, and the same on my wifes iPhone, yet Chrome, Google Maps and a few other network-using apps had no difficulty connecting throughout this period.

To whom it may concern: I eat quite often at Taco Bell here in Southern California. As you know, several companies such as Ramada Inn, Target and Taco Bell are now paying Waze to insert
bubble icons on the Waze map to advertise a sale or promotion then has a "Go" navigate selection. the problem is that at least for Taco Bell, the "Go" does not get you all the way there. In Riverside it navigates you to down the street and on the opposite side of the street of where it is. In Yorba Linda, it navigates you to several blocks away where the Costco store is. However, when you do a regular "navigate to" Taco Bell, it takes you right up to the building. This is probably not the place to report this, but I am sure that this can be brought to the attention of someone who needs to know. Both of these "Taco Bell" bubble icons are not at the actual location, the "Go" takes you to the icon. I next checked bubble icons for "Wal-Mart" and "Target" stores. Both of these bubble icons were at the correct locations.

We've fixed the bug in which the GPS was lost when an alert popped (also when the nearing destination dropped). Does it still happen for you? In what scenarios exactly?
Please send debug logs the next time it will happen and mention the date & time it happened.

Also, see screencap - Wazer info is below the navigation bar and not readable.


This happens to me, too.

I failed to reproduce (tried with different devices and OS).
Can you provide steps to reproduce this? Do you know of cases in which it doesn't happen?

I've tried and tried to reproduce this error, but I can't seem to make it happen any more. I'll write this one off as a momentary glitch on my part.

Since a user brought up the advertisements, I need to note that tapping on those ad bubbles crashes Waze for me. It did it on my old Samsung Galaxy S Show (running Gingerbread) and it does it on my new HTC Droid DNA (running Jelly Bean). The pop-up window appears and the loading animation shows, then Waze stops. I've sent logs every time it happens. The ads work fine on the Motorola Razr HD I checked so it appears to only be affecting my two models of phone.

I have had a ton of Waze crashes the last few days, I don't know what is going on. If seems to happen at predictable times, like at stops. I also get crashes if I click the advertisements so I wonder if it is related.

Not sure if this is the correct place to report, but there's a significant translation error in the Dutch version: "Forgot password" is translated as "Onthoud mij", which means "Remember me" - almost the opposite!
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!
