The client sometimes gets to a state, when no popup (neither wazer infos, nor events) will apear on screen. Menus work fine. A manual client restart is then necessary.

I'm occasionally (noticed 3 times) seeing the speedometer empty (no digits and km/h below the line), sometimes with just the first digit displayed, sometimes just the second one, their visibility changes with increasing/decreasing speed. Seems to be random, if it happens, but I'd rather say that it appeared as if each speed had an assigned set of visible digits, which keeps across acceleration/deceleration (upper correct, below wrong):

At the moment (I've noticed this just now at the screenshots), the Cities layer strings are also randomly missing some characters (upper correct, below wrong):

The phone has some 100-200 MB free memory at the moment.
Client restart fixes that.

not a major issue, but an interesting one :)

A design flaw, already there since... ever?

I was able to determine this by having a fellow Wazer ride with me for a few days. He has a Razr HD (not Maxx or Maxx HD) running 4.1.1 and no crash issues at all. At the exact moment mine crashed, his would display a pop up ad. But on his, the ad can be dismissed or go away and he won't see any more for a few days; on mine (ours) it keeps trying to serve the ad over and over and over which leads to constant crashing.

One local wazer has been blaming a few previous (released) Android versions for repeated crashes when driving through one particular geographical position. (He even mentioned that his colleague's iPhone Waze client kept crashing there as well.) Since the current release, he has not observed these crashes anymore.

I've also been always observing 100% regular crashes with my previous Symbian version on one particular place, no idea whether it could be related. I've not yet driven the road with an Android client.

Yet another user has triggered the stop point being lost by looking for or displaying the alternative routes. Allegedly it happens just during navigation, not prior to start.

While trying it without GPS, I've noticed that after creating a route with stop point and then displaying alternative routes on map, the pink route gets violet-colored on map afterwards.

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?

After being navigated 15 minutes long, the client crashed upon tapping the right report button. I've not touched anything at least 5-10 min. prior to the crash.

Whether these are client- or routing server-related...

I've reached my route's via (stop) point, its time disappeared from the ETA window, the next displayed turn already belonged to the following violet route, yet the client was still displaying also the rosa route (instead of rerouting me) - possibly because I was snapped to an adjacent segment few (tens of) meters displaced from my stop point.

Shortly prior to reaching another stop point (in the middle of a two-way segment), I've noticed that the violet route actually U-turns at the segment and goes back along the lila route (although it is perfectly possible (and usually faster) to continue straight).

An event popup displays the reporting wazer's icon including his group icon. The same wazer's details popup omits his group icon. Why? (This question is possibly not related to this particular client version.)

Another question is, how can one and the same user be "anonymous" on one popup and properly named on another popup, at the same time (time difference between the two screenshots was just 14 seconds)?
