I've noticed another problem: I am not able to search my contacts for an address. I've checked application permissions and Waze is allowed to access my Contacts (actually all of the permission controls for Waze are greyed out so I can not change them even if I wanted to, which is another problem).

I go into Navigate, type in a contact's name and swipe over to the contacts tab. It immediately returns with "No results found", whereas any of the other tabs at least shows an attempt to search before either returning something.

I am using Waze from Blackberry AppWorld (v 1.101.9655.0) on STL-100-3 hardware and OS

Hey guys,

My Z10 is still suffering from the dreaded "Searching network..." bug.

I am running a Z10 STL100-3 OS with Waze 1.101.9655.0.

I can only get it to run 10% of the time but most of the times I just give up. I've been a baby Wazer forever! I've tried:

1) Closing Waze and restarting
2) Resetting BB and restart Waze
3) Remove battery on BB and restart Waze
4) Using 2D maps only
5) Jumping up and down with a paper aluminum hat on while saying 3 hail Mary's ...

Does anyone have advice for me? Does anyone know if the new OS10.1.0.4181 will fix it (I just got it today and will download tonight at home and try it out).

This app is awesome and I am addicted. I just wish it would run better on the Z10!

Oh yah, I get no sound alerts when I approach a speed camera which would be very useful. I am almost thinking of getting an Apple just so I can use this app problem free! Any input would be much appreciated.

Waze does not work when screen locked. For instance, I use blue tooth. After setting my destination and starting the route I put my phone in its holster, screen locking the device. Waze does not provide voice navigation from this point.

The native blackberry Maps app does provide voice navigation when screen locked, and also attenuates all other apps that may be playing sounds such as the Music app.

I forgot my password for my userid. when I tried to recover it, Waze didn't recognize any of my email addresses. I removed Waze from my BB10 and reloaded it. Now Waze will not open. I get an error message " Sorry, Activity Waze (in application Waze) is not responding" and I can choose force close or wait, If i wait i get the same message again. I then choose force close. I've reinstalled numerous times and this continues.
I am loading version 1.101.9655.0 of Waze on to my Z10 STL100-3 using software
Please help.

I use Waze on my Z10 and it's actually running quite well. My question is whether there is any consideration at all being put towards developing a native version on BlackBerry 10. Perhaps with Cascades or something? Thanks!

I can confirm the ETA bug and an issue with voice prompts on my STL-100-1, running OS

Voice prompts are working through loudspeaker, but it is mute if the phone is connected to a bluetooth speakerphone.

The startup screen shows the logo a little streched vertically.

Sometimes waze asks to send bug report even if there was no error in the previous session.

Apart from these, I must tell this version works surprisingly well. Thanks for porting!

Same problem on my Galaxy Note 8 (GT-N5110 - Android 4.1.2). This device only has wifi accessibility to the network. Sometimes it connects, but often it doesn't. Restarting Waze doesn't help, not even restarting the device does. Any hint?

First of all, you should check your data provider, even check your tablet. Maybe it's not just Waze but an overall issue with your device.
Second of all, you should remember that this is a BlackBerry topic, so your questions should go to the Android forums. ;)
