Been aware of Waze since last Sept when I jumped ship from WM to Android. But not until I got upgrade from my crappy Android 2.3 to the GS3 did I manage to install the waze app (coz the space it took).

Anyway, overall I feel the app worked fine, but I need to report one major issue.

Seriously, you guys may want to modify the way Voice command works on Android app. For one thing, the 3 finger tap never worked on my device and I had to use wave over the front camera. And you might want to add instructions for the gestures too. I had no idea that "wave" was activated by the front camera until I noticed the glare from the camera one time in dark light. I thought I need to wave the phone. And 2nd of all, voice command in normal driving conditions is plain useless. I tried w/ my Jawbone icon bluetooth (it has killer noise cancellation algorithm), and without. The device would not recognize my command even I shouted. I guess you somehow configured it to get voice from the phone mic all the time, and the road noise basically killed the function.

I noticed that people suggest some force bluetooth setting for ios app, but I do not see it in the android version at all, the only available setting for voice is to "route voice through speaker".

Thanks.

I'm so surprised nobody but me report the problem with voice command. So how's everyone doing in reporting the events?

I tried with my bluetooth earphone and without both, somehow the app always try to pick up the voice command through the phone's mic, which basically got overwhelmed by the regular road noise while driving. It's always a hit or miss, and 90% of the time, it would not recognize my full command no matter how loudly I shouted. I feel very unsafe if I have to tap on screens to report anything while driving.

Waze Eats CPU after close!

Postby MrPete » Tue Apr 02, 2013 11:26 am

I have been running the Watchdog app for a long time. Waze never showed up as a CPU suspect until the last few days.

Now I've got a very strange situation: I properly exited Waze with no errors. Yet it continues to eat up 50-60 percent of the CPU, forever!

I see that others are having battery drain problems since the new version of Waze came out... but they don't suspect Waze because they have exited.

Looks to me like there's a real issue here. Waze is not really closing, and/or some kind of Waze-owned subprocess continues to eat CPU after exit.

Is there any way to help debug this?

BTW, an effective yet painful workaround is to reboot after using Waze.

I admit it I'm a noob. I upgraded and now Waze 3.6.0.0 disables my GPS. Can someone send me a link to the version from March 15? That worked for me.

This is my first time reporting a bug. About 1 of 5 times that I start waze, it completely freezes my phone OS forcing me to pull the battery and reboot.

I don't feel like it has gotten better or worse since the latest update.

How can I help to get this this issue fixed?

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.

Reinstalled beta, traffic colours work, something was changed between the last beta and play store release that borked it.

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 ??
