Is there any way of getting the navigate option to default to opening up in the favourites list?

Is there supposed to be any onscreen feedback showing when a route has finished being cached over wifi?

I hope not, I'm pretty sure that some arrows wouldn't affect so hard the performance of an Android phone. And if they do, well, it's time to bring some serious Android developers to the team. But I still hope it's not the case.

Anyway, they can be seen in 2D mode so if they affect the performance so hard, it shouldn't be displayed in 2D either. One more reason to think that's not the reason.

Regarding the screen size, they are not available on 3.5 but not on 4.8 either. So .... 4.8 inch screen is big screen after my opinion :) And even on 3.5 the arrows in 2D mode are displayed just fine.

Can someone with a fresh mind explain me why on earth in 3D mode, oneway streets do not display those arrows ? In 2D mode at a certain zoom level they are displayed, but on 3D they are not displayed no matter what zoom level you have. What's the reason behind this ? I think those arrows are very important to be displayed in 3D mode.

They are not displayed in the stable version neither in latest beta version.

Phone Runs Supper Hot with Latest Version

Postby TheTomTom » Fri Jan 18, 2013 3:16 pm

Hello all,

This version of waze, 3.5.3.0, is causing my AT&T Samsung SGH-I727 ( skyrocket ) to run so hot that I can't hold it in my hand.
A 30 minute drive with the phone plugged into the car charger used up 30% of the batter life.

Some of the first versions of Wazed I used had similar issues, but recent versions ( the last two at least ) really seemed to cut this effect down.

Has any one else noticed similar issues?

Thanks!

-Tom

Hi Perlin, not sure if this has been reported yet or not, but when going to my waze > view settings > > any menu and you click on the X in the upper right corner, it brings you back to the my waze screen. It should bring you back to the view settings screen.

I would like to also add that Waze was crashing like crazy on a drive from Georgia to South Carolina - it seemed like I could trigger the crash by attempting to add a stop, and the crash would occur after indicating that I was a passenger, and then bringing up the keyboard. Waze doesn't seem to know it's crashing either, normally I would be prompted to submit logs, although I never have been.

In main lines: I like this app a lot - actually I'm addicted.
About last version: It is terrible!
I have Samsung Galaxy GT-I9003, it is hanging all day long, gas prices aren't active, and GPS "get lost" not only at the gas stations for gas prices but on the road for a moment of different goals as well!

If we all want get more waze friends and get our family bigger than need this problem solve faster!
Some friends of mine also aren't satisfied about this version - in Android play store we can read bad things about this version as well from different users.

Thanks Latvia's main manager Instigarer - he correctly instructed how to get previous version on a phone! Now everything is ok.

PLEASE RE FIX IT ! IT ISN'T A GOOD ADVERTISEMENT ! THANKYOU!

EDIT: Saw another post (which I merged into this topic) about phones running hot with this version again. My phone was hot (and plugged into the car charger) when it crashed.


On the return trips (multi-destination) had several issues...

1) Two Hard Crashes of Waze - Logs sent just before 5pm Eastern & at about 7pm Eastern
2) Tried to submit 4 map issues - 3 didn't go through
3) Driving in traffic, got an ETA Change alert that said "traffic clearing up" and moved my arrival -10 minutes, before that one even closed, got another one "traffic building up" and moved my arrival +10 minutes for a net change of ZERO.


I experienced similar issues on 5+ hour drive. Ran very warm (On stock car charger and seemed to be charge neutral [no net gain of battery]), anytime I tried to submit any reports where I added any text they would crash waze (three times in all, and then I gave up adding text). Logs sent.
