Are there settings to disable or control the period of time before it exits the app?

Waze closes itself when it's idle (turning off the screen is considered idle in this case).


Could you elaborate on what is considered idle. I turn screen off while driving on dark rural roads. Screen turns itself off while in call. If i anticipate that call will get long I pull over, stop, finish the call then put phone back in its cradle and get busy getting back on the road. Screen turns itself off.

The developers defined idle as 10 minutes and longer of lack of motion.

It is very annoying to have to check if Waze is running because you don't know if it turned itself off or not just because you stopped to get gas, stopped to eat, ran into a store for a few minutes, etc.

Can you please add a setting to control the behavior?

10 minutes is not such a short time. If you stop for an errand for 10 min or more, shutting down waze saves you battery life. Is it such a hassle to open the app again?
When we set the app to not close at all, you guys complained that it's draining the battery and in cases that one forgets to close it, it's a good idea to close it for him if it detects no action.

The new version didn't remember my unit settings (changed to the default in Miles).
Other than that, I have been using the new version on a couple of drives today and it worked well.

For future version could be good if you add the ability of users to manipulate the order of the Favorites. Home and Work are showing on top, but new records are pushed to the bottom of the list and this isn't necessarily the order users may wish to have them.

Cheers,
Hagay.


In the iOS version it is already possible to edit the order within Waze app.

In Android you have to manually edit the history file.

As soon as I click on the app it closes down again.

I had the same issue in the previous beta.
Check the size of preference file.
For some reason it was 0bytes. The solution was to restore a backup version (or reinstall the beta).

Updated to the latest version since released, but the widget is not misaligned on my Galaxy S3: the Refresh and Drive button (right area) is a not centered anymore.

But I also noticed a bug in measuring the distance from a point, check the image:

I was driving from point 1, passing by 2, 3 and going to the north-west.
When I was at point 1, I got a notification of a danger at point A, saying it was at 400 meters.
by the time I reached point 2, distance from danger was 50 meters, when I continued to point 3, distance from danger increased again (300+ meters), then again decrease when I was on the same road.

So to give the distance you calculate absolute sight distance from the object and not the length of the road to it.

not a major issue, but an interesting one :)

The new Share drive interface looks nice.
There still needs to be a way to pause/resume sharing a previous session. So many times, especially if you are on a longer trip, you stop for gas or to go in and eat and don't want waze to continue running. It is very annoying to have to resend location links and for the people you have shared with to have to reload a new website each time.
