Having so much issues with play store version vs the last beta. Traffic layer does not even show up for me. Tried to uninstall and now I can't use the restore favorite command, tells me I don't have Internet connection and closes the app. Going back to beta.

Didn't think there was a difference.

Try a clean install: delete Waze beta then download from play store

Tried multiple times, force close, clear data, uninstall, restart, reinstall. Same

✓ Optimized performance and multiple bug fixes


After this performance improvement, it feels like it activates the 750pts bonus, a bit too fast.

Just after you start driving after a stop (and it want to give me a bonus), it place the bonus after too short driving. Sometimes the GPS-signal isn't good, and it moves a bit around. So in may cases, it place it in the wrong direction, or too far away (if I turn before I reach it).

I know I'll get it later, but it is still a bit frustrating.

Can you put a delay in, so the position have to be moved at least 50 metres in the driving direction (after the stop). And not after the next intersection.

Or maybe it's only at my Android version 4.1.2 ??

Gas stations and prices missing on first launch (in all previous versions too).
Guided tour: sorry, this video cannot be played. (in all previous versions too)
How to edit the map: video is playing, but squished in half screen and portrait only. No landscape. Only half video visible. (in all previous versions too)
Search results disappear after click on map (in all previous versions too).
Moods: Bronze wazer is giant... 2-3 times bigger then other icons (in all previous versions too).
Baby wazers shown on map are GIANT. (in all previous versions too).

Language download was offered on second launch only. Thats new.
Waze is downloading something for some long time without notification of what is happening (not language or tiles).

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.

khaytsus wrote:I suspect if you saw no crashes it didn't try to load any ads. That is why it crashes at "every stoplight".


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.
