Get Waze on the Windows Store

Avoid the fake $4 version of waze by "Windows Phone Platinium"
- Looks like Windows has taken down this faker.
Edited to clean up, & update faker info.

No Facebook support for windows phone at this time. - @Waze on Twitter

Welcome to Waze! First things first, as Alan posted above, be sure to search the forums before posting.

You should also follow the forum guidelines and search both the forum and wiki for answers already available for most questions.

Second to your issue, this is a common complaint not only for waze but for most GPS apps due to the constant GPS usage, screen time, and possibly having it plugged in. Having the phone mounted in the sun can exacerbate issues. One common suggestion is to "vent mount" your phone, having air blow across it will keep it cool.

This is normal. I'm not sure if its done to reduce load on the server or to protect privacy, but Wazer's locations are updated only periodically, not live. You will notice you are "leap-frogging" back and forth with other Wazer's when you are close by.

The problem is, that when I did get back on the route, it had lost the ability to tell me when I was going to reach my destination.

If you don't get an ETA in the lower black box, waze/your phone has no data connection.
If you are positive that data connection was available, close and restart waze the next time.
No ETA means no data is available...

First off, the self help search link at the beginning of this topic is broken.

Phone: Nokia Lumina 630, WP8.1
Bugs:
1)My Waze inbox never retrieves messages. I get notifications, but the messages never open.
2)When I leave work in the evening and open Waze, it starts navigating my route automatically. This annoys the heck out of me, because I never asked it to, and it starts talking to me via bluetooth and interrupting my jams.
3)Whenever I report something I get a black screen overlay with a spinning thingy, and it never goes away until I press the back arrow, which then tries to close the program. This is an issue because I'm driving and don't want to have to spend much time looking at my phone while still trying to report stuff to other Wazers.

I know these have been addressed in the last few pages of this topic. Just wanted to add mine in the hope these get fixed sooner. I happen to really like the Windows Phone OS, and don't plan on switching back to Android.
