Waze works great on my Blackberry 8900. Thank you Waze team for creating such a super app.

Verizon BB 8530 (5.0.0.508)

Installed and running fine. Took a while to download the maps originally, but that was expected. Took about 10 minutes for the satellites to acquire the first time, an less than a minute every time after that. I'm at work so I haven't had a chance to drive anywhere but around the corner for lunch, but it seemed fast and accurate. Looking forward to testing it out further in the coming days.

Hi,

I am from France and have a Blackberry Curve 9300 "3G" with OS 5.0.0.832.
My first smartphone wasn't working with Waze. I couldn't log on, it seems that no connection was possible. It is the only program that can't connect. Firewall is disabled, APN are ok, and all permission are allowed.
This smartphone was replaced today with a new one. The old went to waranty. I have the same issue with the new BB 9300. So I suppose the problem was not related to the device.

Do you have an idea ? Any new version ? I asked to have access to the beta testing two weeks ago but didn't get any answer.

Thank you.

Benjamin

It doesn't matter, the Storm version doesn't work either.

Have you joined the BB beta testers group? The next major version was sent to the group for testing.

Ehud


Odd I signed up when it was first posted, never got any email, would like to test it out on my Storm.

Ok, so I don't see berries on my BB 8900?

I see them on my iPod. All around me. Those same berries are not on my 8900?

I do get a memory error on app luanch on my BlackBerry, but I can click past it and the app behaves as expected, with the exception of the berries!

Where are the berries?!?!

@lyndaw and @dispatcher35:

These navigations issue pop up because the maps are still incomplete... In that respect, that app is working right, it's just being fed the wrong information!

One of the BEST things about Waze is the ability for the end user to edit the maps!

I'd bet, if you go the Live Map / Update Map section of the Waze website and check out the areas where it was telling you to drive over a median, you'll see some some sort of problem, that you can fix! It's got to be the coolest thing going! Well, that and driving through an area you fixed and having it work right and saying "I did that!" Love it!!!

I will warn you though, map editing is HIGHLY addictive! Have fun!

Isn't there a bugtracker for the different clients?

I think feedback in a forum is good, but having a bugtracker is also needed.

The forum has so many information and it is very difficult to search for existing bugs or if they should be fixed.

Waze team, wouldn't this be a better possibility?
There could be projects for each client (iPhone, BB, Android etc) and also the cartouche etc.

If every user registered on the waze site could have access to it, it would be better organized i think.
Also, the tracking of bugs would be much more easier.

Is there still activity in the beta program?

The last beta version I got from alpha was two months ago, the version I am currently using is 1.9.0.3

One of the biggest features I am missing is the speed cam function, we can see at uservoice that the fix for this feature is also at the second place.

Can anyone confirm what fulviov said?

Is the BlackBerry client development really terminated (I mean also the non-touch version)?

I hope not...
