Hi,
Previously I reported issue with older waze version on my phone - see this thread - viewtopic.php?f=3&t=32801&start=240#p333766

I did a clean install after that and it worked perfectly - the only difference I made was instead of actively using it, I either left waze ran in background or ran it with 2D view and lower screen brightness. It never crashed since. I would just go in to activate navigation then either go back to my home screen or shut the screen off.

After the latest update, everything works as usual until today when I attempted to change from 2D view to 3D view - it crashed right away and rebooted my phone.

I don't know technical stuffs about this issue but I know that if I want waze to work for me, I have to do these steps:
1. Lower my screen brightness down (never max!)
2. Start waze
3. Change to 2D view
4. Set the course/navigation
5. Pray it won't crash

If you have same issue of your phone keeps rebooting, you may try my solution - see if it works for you too.

Happy waze-ing!
nqjoe

To visit a contact on waze 355 with an iPad1/iOs511
Tap navigate menu icon (or right slide from main screen)
then type name contact ( first , last or both ; tried each)
And hit search button

And waze never return any of my contact ( all set with valid address)

On an iPhone 4 /ios601 I always get the searched contact

---- Look silly that's iOs fault

why the hell did they set the buttons on one line only, to make it barely un-understandable?
(not enough place on the screen i guess :mrgreen: )

I have to agree with wlau. I like most of the recent enhancements except for the change with "Favorites" and "History". The "Favorites" are one click deeper, which doesn't sound like much, but general UI design tries to reduce the number of clicks to get to commonly used features. My "Favorites" by definition are commonly used.

Does WAZE research actually show that people pick addresses from history more often than they do from favorites?

With regards to "History", could there be a way to purge all history instead of having to go through them one by one?

Thanks!

Can you find another examples?

Was able to find another 2 examples of this behaviour:

Image
Says "Catherine Av" when it should say "Stephensons Rd"

Image
"Says "Elstone Ct" when it should say "Keilor Rd"

Looks to me like Waze gets the name from the intersecting side street of where the traffic jam begins instead of the road actually being travelled on.

I noticed this error today. Traffic alerts generated by Waze (and not reported by the user) seem to be grabbing the wrong road name when Waze automatically reports. The first screen capture shows the traffic jam on Highbury Road, however it is reported as Cumming Street, which is a side street off Highbury Road. The second screen capture shows where Cumming Street is in relation to Highbury Road.

...Can't search contacts on iOS 5.1.1

The same for me. I want the old feature back! Please - of course :)


Works fine on iOS 6.0.1. It must be something to do with iOS 6 privacy permissions which got a significant overhaul.

It is possible that in order for it to work under iOS 6 it cannot under previous versions of iOS. I guess only Waze (or maybe another developer) can answer that.


My iPod Touch 4th gen is on iOS 6.0.1 and my copy of Waze 3.5.3 also has problems searching my contacts, so I don’t think it is an iOS 6 issue. I was running the prior version of Waze 3.5.2 on it last week, and it didn’t have any problems finding any of my contacts.

Now it can’t find most of the ones I search for, so it must be something to do with this version.

CoPilot Live 9.4.0.146 doesn’t have any problems when I want to navigate to one of my contacts, (and frankly it has a better UI for picking one of my contacts,) and I’ve had to spend more of my time using it, rather than Waze.

I’d rather spend my time in Waze so I can report road conditions to help other Waze users, but since I can’t navigate using my contact list, the “help with directions” benefits to me are almost entirely gone with this version. :cry:
