Complete loss of ALL sound for the 3rd time (seems to happen every couple of weeks)

Worked yesterday, not working today.

Last time I thought that maybe some updates to other apps may have been a problem.

But this time there wasn't any updates to anything since yesterday.


This is really bad as the only way to fix the problem is to completely remove waze then reinstall from scratch.....

We're aware of some UI bugs with 1080p devices and working on fixing them.
Thanks for reporting.


It is not about minor layout issues. Problem is about font sizes used for streets, landmarks, fuel prices. Size of icons for traffic reports, size of icons for paid ads, categories etc.

To satisfy all users make map UI in line with Android guidelines.

Hi when I ride on my bike I used to launch waze then turn off my phone and put it in my jacket pocket. It worked very well and I got the audio messages. The main advantage was to have the screen turned off and save battery life. Since a recent time, if I do this, waze just turn off.

Is there a way to keep Waze running when the phone screen is turned off ?

Thanks!

Revert to older version. V 3.6 will turn off when running in background for longer time.

Waze 3.6.0.0

I sent in a large log file this morning(over 100 parts).

I get blank screen more and more often. And it difficult to report fuel prices. When I shall send away the updated rates to transmit continuously, I get no confirmation that the update is received.

I am using the HTC One Developer Edition, using the stock official firmware.

Waze will not run - instant crash after the loading intro screen.

Here's a link to the bugreport - showing a fresh install of Waze (/sdcard/waze does not exist) and running it. Some sort of crash while getting location services access.

Waze used to work perfectly on my HTC One S until two days ago, when Google pushed out a bunch of updates including for Maps. Now Waze would not even start and just crashes on splash screen. Clearing data/cache and reinstalling doesn't work.

I have a sinking feeling that to fix the tiny fonts issue would entail a major rewrite of the app, which probably won't happen. As far as I can tell, all the major map programs (Waze, Google Maps, MapQuest, Bing) have text that is way too small on high res devices. Bing's are biggest and easiest for me to read, but it has to be side-loaded or downloaded from the Amazon app store, so it isn't widely available.

If Waze could embiggen (to borrow a Simpsons word) the fonts, they would certainly be pioneers in this respect!
