Hello,

I am (was) using Waze on a stock Nexus 4, and it is no more usable since version 3.7 as it crashes very often on startup or within the first minute. I may need to restart it 10 times before it sticks. I wiped the cashe, removed the application and re-installed it, but it did not improve.

Any hint ?

PS: I activated debug mode and sent some logs.

The question isn't "can it be fixed" because any IT professional knows that it can with some code tweaking. The question is "will it be fixed". That one hasn't been answered yet.

I am having the same issue.
It will be fixed, sometimes in the future, but probably on the next major release like 3.8.

Don't get your hopes too high. Those now highly paid Google employees will look more at their wallets then at their code. :mrgreen:

What's extremely disturbing is the fact that other hi resolution devices are treated right. It's 1080p devices that suffer from wrong UI layout.

My first post here, using waze since 2 years, first on galaxy S2, then on galaxy S3 and now on Galaxy S4.
I found the same issues, speedometer quite small, and hidden by report button.

Running WAZE 3.7.2 on a Samsung Galaxy S4. When the phone is positioned on its side so the display is in landscape mode, there are graphics that overlap one another that interfere with normal use of the interface. Specifically, the lower left-hand menu icon overlaps the 'my location' icon and the lower right-hand icon overlaps the 'zoom out' icon.

Is this something requiring a software update, or is this something I can adjust, and if so, where?

This problem exist since November 2012. Ever since Droid DNA (1920x1080) has entered the market. Waze acknowledges the problem but they refuse to do anything about it.

Let's hope that ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) will move them forward.

Slightly smaller v screen but the Resolution is much higher. You can see loafs of the map

Pretty sure that's one of the known issues for this release.

Question, though, simply out of curiosity - why are you using it in landscape mode? On my S3 (which has only a slightly smaller screen), landscape mode doesn't show me enough of the map IMHO. While in navigation mode, the map is all but unusable because the next turn instruction is covering the top third of the map. I feel that in portrait mode I can see more of the map and get a better idea of conditions coming up - as long as there are no major turns in my near future, that is ;)
