Not sure if this is client or server issue but I have been getting few of those lately.

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.

Surely server. (I'm getting the same, already since yesterday?)

trying to get used to the good new social Android 4.0.xx.yyy (OP-X LOL-a-popp).

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.

I find myself having to check if Waze is still running when stopped at a long light with heavy traffic where you sit through the light cycling 2-3 times before you get through it. I have had it turn off on me.

Would I guess you have never had to wait for a train? That can easily take 10 minutes and have the app shutdown on you.

If you make it a setting then you make everybody happy! :D
When you force it without options, you will always make somebody unhappy.

So please make it configurable!

I noticed that when I "munch" newly created roads, it shows the munching icon but the next day, the same roads are ready to munch again.

We can see data flow running correctly on device while Waze do not find network.

Strange. Since I moved to SGS2 (from WM6 phone) about a year ago, I never had this problem. I usually start Waze on WiFi in front of my house and the client smoothly continues on GSM. Doesn't matter if I switch the WiFi off or keep it on and the signal is lost.
