I'm in the same situation, got an iPhone 5 from my employer. Had to jailbreak the device *only* to run the beta. But again, the forum has the link, if you can't see the forum you're "not in" :P

When I use Add a Stop, the routing goes completely to shit. Now it has me going as far out of the way as possible to get to my stop point, alternatively it has me going quite far out of the way to get to my end point.

If it's not doing that, it's telling me to drive in circles...

The routing server seems to be strongly preferring to get us very close to our final destination, then routing to the stop point, then back to the final destination again. They need to work on this.

I uninstalled Waze 3.6, rebooted, synced over version 3.5.3 from iTunes, and I still had the exact same problem (crashing after the logo).

For the time being I've restored my 4S to factory settings, restored from backup, reinstalled Evasi0n, and kept Waze 3.5.3.

I know that catering a fix to jailbroken users is a hassle with all of the extra factors you have to account for, but I do hope that something gets worked out.


What worked for me was to create a new profile on ipad/itunes. Basically did not restore my settings and just sync my apps. Everything else returned the same result of Waze not starting up.

I think you've shot yourself in the foot on this one. Now my commute to work along the motorway was very boring with the Waze client not showing me the labels of any surrounding objects; no road labels, no junction labels, no landmark labels. This makes Waze look like a very "unfinished" sat nav product compared to your competitors. I'm all for reducing map clutter, but there's lot of room to include useful labels such as junction numbers/names and the names of the roads they lead to, possibly the names of parallel routes and other large landmarks adjacent to the motorway such as parks. I learnt so much about the area surrounding my commute from glancing at the Waze map as I drove into work. This in turn encouraged me to add and label missing landmarks - now there is no incentive for me or other drivers to do this.

We know that there are lots of improvements to make and we're working on the map (and general UI) constantly.

Turning iMessage off completely seems to fix it, but that doesn't seem the best solution..

We're checking to see if this is something that can be controlled from our end, but we believe it's not related to waze, but to the OS.

Alan, do you know if this was added to the list of open items? (Don't currently have access.) I see this a lot and I can add some examples if we need more.
