@CMusciano - you're having a frustrating experience. I feel there are answers. I'm sure I've seen other Nexus One users, and don't see all of these problems reported. So we need to figure out what the source of the problem may be. I think there may be bugs in the Waze app. If so, that's good, because Waze will fix it. But we need to verify that.

I'm sorry if you have to repeat yourself, but if you can report more about that crashes with Waze 2.0 - unless they are all detailed below.

This sounds like a bug, and I'm going to report it as such. Is there anything you can think of that is non-standard about your Nexus One? Any other apps giving you problems?
And are you running any other apps. Just for diagnostic purposes, are you able to stop running anything except Waze? Ideally, I'd ask you to backup your phone, reset it to factory standard and try Waze on that plain configuration. Just for troubleshooting. But that may be too much to ask.
CMusciano wrote:I use the phone in landscape mode while in the dock. Every so often, waze just reverts to portrait mode and stays that way, even if you rotate the phone back and forth. All other apps correctly sense and react to the orientation, but not waze.
This is really unlikely to be a bug in Waze. It gets the event from the phone, and reacts. Again it makes me wonder if some other app you are running is interfering. Still I'll report it with a question mark, in case any one else has the same experience.
Are than any events or notifications that coem up associated with the switch to portrait mode? Some message from the phone? For example, does it happen after you receive a text message?
As a test, are you able to confirm that when Waze is locked in portrait mode, and you switch to other apps, that they will change orientation. That is, I want confirmation hat when Waze is locked in orientation
other apps aren't locked in orientation at the same time

This I can answer. They do all make sense, but
a) there are many combinations of weekly, all-time, state, country, and
b) there's a time lag between server and phone - the phone tries to estimate, the server keeps the master record, and the web site shows the latest as processed by the webserver
This needs to be documented. I'll add it to my list of things to do. In the meantime, feel free to
a) think about it, and thern
b) ask some more specific questions
CMusciano wrote:Routing is hysterically bad sometimes, and there are gross errors in the map. How do you get those corrected?
Great. Another one I can answer. Yes, the routing is bad until the maps are corrwect. Then it is fantastic. So how to get the maps right? Eventually Waze will learn as you drive over them. But pfthhhhh - who wants to wait? So you have three choices:
a) wait - keep Waze on as you drive and it will learn better routes
b) fix it yourself
c) ask someone else to fix it
b) also needs better documentation, but you can work it out from http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Impr ... t_the_maps
Better documentation for map editing is almost at the top of my to do list. It's all there. Just not very friends and linear and tutorial and step-by-step like. So if you're frightened by the wiki now, give it a couple of weeks
c) we need to know where it is. Ideally you'd go to the Livemap and give us a permalink (click on the Waze logo on the livemap to do that. Or a description of the route would help.
Best place to post would be in the forum for your country, asking for someone to take a look. Or if you look in the Map Editor, you can turn on the Area Managers layer, see who that is, see if the frequent the forum, and ask them for help.
Or even easier, post an Update Request - report a map error in the area, and explain you'd like someone to fix the map problems in the area.
And you can ask me, because I just love making routes work well.
