I'm still having some troubling crashes that were present in the last version. Since the update wasn't too specific, I'm going to mention them again just in case.

Waze crashes if I try to go to My Coupons or My Scoreboard. And after being crash-free for the two weeks after the Christmas holiday, it's now crashing again when I come to a stop at some intersections. It only happens if I leave the screen on and the device idle for a few seconds. I get a burst of data then a crash. If I keep the gas prices form open, or Foursquare's venue list open, or turn off the screen before coming to a stop, it will not crash.

Checked today with another user, also running 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, and the first time mine crashed, he got a pop up ad for Taco Bell. Is there any way to temporarily turn off ad pop ups?

During the last two weeks on the previous version when it started magically working again with the screen on, there were no pop ups for either of us other than the usual hazards and traffic alerts.

Since upgrading to 3.5.3 I no longer get a prompt to send logs to Waze upon restart on any of these crashes.

I can sometimes see just fractions of event pop-ups, however on the screenshots they are fine. I guess rather a graphics subsystem problem? Or indeed Waze misusing it?

Waze eats up all resources on my N7000 , switching apps with Waze running is a 50/50 chance of locking the phone and when even more unlucky a forced reboot is required. If not apps will become terribly slow with occasional freezing and completely locking up the phone if you don't shutdown Waze fast.

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.

Crashes are always our top priority to fix. We're currently focusing on locating the source of the crashes you've reported with this version.

Menu->Settings->6th item down for me (below Navigation")....

Sounds like you may have gotten a bad download.... or something screwy happened because you upgraded from the beta...

Ah, got that back on 4th or 5th start. It was not there before. Looks that Report > Gas prices and then restart application or other magic helped.

The Gas Stations & Prices setting comes from the server, not from the client itself and sometimes it takes a few restarts for it to show (due to network failures).

Here is one that requires restart of Waze and is absolutely maddening. With setting of "No auto zoom" bring up Routes>Map>Select route. Map center button becomes numb. Map stops following movement and it's stuck in North setting.

We're aware of this bug and it will be fixed.

Indeed not fixed yet.
