Hi!
Seems that app internal routing doesn't honor parking and private roads penalties.

If I use Live Map or Waze routing server -- they both plan a route around the private road. But when I have no internet connection (i.e. airplane mode), my app navigates me through this private road.

I have the same issue with Parking Lot roads. Could anyone please confirm this? If it's a bug, how to I report it?

Thanks in advance!

When will be there new versions or beta apps? Nothing recognized for a long time??? Will be there new betas or even final versions. What is about the rumors about a new beta platform?

I hope they keep their focus on more important things for a while, like the routing and the infrastructure stability. New moods can wait :lol:

From (not only) my experience the client produces a totally different, incomparable route, with many confusing turn/keep/continue/exit left/right/straight commands not obeying the segment connection angles, possibly also the segment types and properties, etc. Prior to being aware of it, I've made a couple of rides with two identical clients side-by-side, one online, one offline - :o :shock: IIRC many segment properties are available just to the routing servers. But which?

Actually it should be sufficient to report such bug here. It will then flow to some bug tracking system... and that was it?

Re: App crashes on startup

Postby ekngee » Tue Apr 16, 2013 12:09 am

Apologies if I'm going to annoy anyone.

I started experiencing this since this morning. Before today everything was working fine.

The app would load into the map, but whenever I would swipe to start navigation or prompt for my favourite locations (like Home or Work), it will crash (go back to launcher).

So I re-installed the app, and this time, after pressing "Next" at the license agreement, the app would crash again.

Anyone knows what's wrong?

btw, I'm running on ParanoidAndroid 3.15 ROM (28 Mar build) with franco v372 kernel.
tested on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Crashing when stopped

Postby olorin2 » Thu Apr 18, 2013 6:44 pm

Hello All:

I posted about this issue in a separate thread, but then came across multiple posts in the feedback thread about the same issue. Is it still a known issue? These were from over a month ago, so I wasn't sure. Waze is crashing when stopping at a light, as well as when I go into Scoreboard, Groups, etc. I'm using a Motorola Razr Maxx HD, running JB 4.1.2. This problem never occurred on my HTC Thunderbolt running Honeycomb. So is this software-related or maybe a hardware problem? I did notice one other user that also had a Moto Razr Maxx HD with this issue. Just wanted to bring it to light again, since this particular problem does not appear to be affecting the majority of users.

Sent dozens of logs both in client and android reports.

Trying to access scoreboard produces a crash.

Sorry it's crashing, but glad to see a few more people are having this issue besides me. It's been doing it every since I got my new phone w/ Jelly Bean.

It's definitely the ads. When the ads go away, so does the crashing.

Right. I suspect there's a radius setting at work and if you're way out from the nearest advertiser's pushpin location, you won't see ads. I can go out in the boonies and the issue goes away.

Right now the only way to avoid the crashes, in my experience, are to either a) keep doing something in Waze (like gas prices or paging through the menus) to keep it occupied, or b) turn off the screen when you come to a stop.

There's also a third way but it involves editing the preferences file and I'm hesitant to share it in the forums because I don't want Waze removing the workaround just to force everyone to see ads (and cause our crashes).

    Waze still crashes about 80% of the time when I stop at an intersection.
    Waze still crashes when accessing messages in the inbox (though the actual Inbox menu loads and is stable) and the "Ask a Question" menu.. AS WELL AS All of the following menus: My Waze > "My Specials", "Scoreboard", and "Groups"
    On occasion, Waze crashes while trying to reopen after sending feedback from a prior crash.

I do not use social media w/ Waze thus cannot comment on their functionality.

Interesting enough I have this app installed on a Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and NONE of the aforementioned issues are present in either of these two phones.

Secondly, I have cleared the cache and performed "clean installs" of Waze on the Galaxy Nexus only to experience the same issues. Unfortunately, Waze has become too unstable and not to mention unsafe for me to reopen every 2 minutes while I'm driving. This upsets me as I have endured through these issues for the past few major updates and have not seen the matters been resolved. I used to love using Waze every day; it has helped me become more credible.

I hope maybe I can retain my credibility even without my precious Waze.

Really odd problem earlier. Clicked on an ad for Jack in the Box, and hit its 'info' button on the popup. (It had a listed special, FWIW.) On backing out of the ad, back to the main map, the map displayed in 2D/direct overhead even though the setting in preferences is for 3D. Changing that setting in user settings back and forth had no effect. Exiting and restarting the app fixed the problem. Was reproducible. Debug logs sent.

When there is an accident, there is no blue highlight to indicate the location on the map !
