Can the app change the traffic status after certain time delay? Normally I got lots of "heavy traffic" type of pop up that were reported 20-30 mins ago, and by the time I was close to the location, most of the time the traffic was gone. I thought the app should be smart enough to remove the "heavy traffic" if for 20-30 mins no wazer on that route reports anything.

Trying to report gas prices seems to always fail for me. I get repeated "loss of gps signal" messages every time I try to report a gas price. I have moved the car out from under any roof/overhang and tried repeatedly. No luck.

Phone: Motorola Droid Bionic, Verizon Wireless, Michigan, USA.

Did I stumble upon a 'feature' or is does this happen when their is either a connectivity or capacity problem with the routing server?

Cheers.


I have had this "feature" for at least a week so it is not related to 3.7.2 bugfix.

Why would you do such thing? That's like pulling cord out off the wall while Windoze is doing updates. Try to exit Waze in normal fashion. Press Menu then Switch Off. That gives application a chance to finish writing to storage your last configuration, position and such.

Consider updating your SGSII to Android 4.2.2.

I have a (relatively old) Galaxy Nexus on 4.2.2 and I see the same thing. Sometimes I reboot because wifi gets jammed. I think it's some software I put on it but who knows what. Anyway, an upgrade to 4.2.2 is not the essential fix.
... and the "v" is for Volvo.

Found update June 6 on Play Store. This time installed ok, but now can't open Waze. I get the splash screen, then blank black screen, then it closes. :cry:

[quote="Kuhlkatz"]The first thing to try would be under phone Settings, Apps & selecting Waze from the list. Select Clear Data and verify that you want to delete the app data. If it's corrupt data files, this should allow you to start Waze.
It's also one of the first options to try if you get 'Searching Network' messages, or if your Location Services does not seem to get a GPS fix after upgrades.

Thanks, this worked and I was able to open Waze.

However it doesn't recognise my login. I asked for a password reminder - though I knew it was the same as for the website - and picked up the email (on the PC) with a totally different login name (world_xxxxx), and clicking the link took me to my usual web page. Could this be a server location problem? I'm in UK running Android 2.2.1 on HTC Wildfire.

Sounds like your Nehbrown account is associated with a different email address. What does it say on the /dashboard webpage for your email address? And, if you're logged into the website/forum, perhaps just try changing your password so you're sure you and the Waze database are aligned.


Yes, you were right, I'd given the wrong email address for the reminder. (Senior moment!) When I use the right address, I can go to the 'change password' screen on the PC, make the change then login to My Dashboard, see points etc for Nehbrown. However I still can't login on the phone using the same username and password that work ok on the web.

Hello,

For me, I have the same issue as yaben.

On Nexus 4, Android 4.2.2, often, Waze just stop working after 1 minut (or less), without any message/warning/information.

Sometimes, reboot, launch Waze, proper Exit and relaunch make it works.... but not always. I ca n launch the application ten times before it's remain active more than a minut.

Hello All,

I posted about a crash issue over the past few months, and recently I believe I've found the cause of the problems. The other thread is here: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=46595&p=505229&hilit=constant+crashes#p505229

The problem appears to be related to the Accessibility service on my Motorola Razr Maxx HD. Whenever there is an app running that uses the service, Waze will frequently crash when coming to a stop, or when going into the Scoreboard. I've tested this with 2 different apps: Light Flow and Llama. If Accessibility is turned off for these, there is no crashing whatsoever.

I contacted the developer for Light Flow, but since then I've had the same issue with another app with Light Flow turned off. This seems to be the case for any app that uses Accessibility on this phone. I did not come across any other posts about this issue, so I'm hoping the problem can be addressed here. I have sent logs in the past, but I'll be happy to provide additional logs, or any other information necessary.

Thank you!
olorin2

Not sure about other countries but in Malaysia our mobile telco's coverage is not good at certain areas. After selecting my favourite pre-saved destination sometimes due to the telco's connectivity I get routing error server pop up. Would appreciate that when it happens, the client should still provide a route instead of a pop up message that routing server have problem. It should pop up saying " Routing server cannot be connected, now using route without GSM connection" something to the effect instead giving the error message.
