Does this happen on all deadends? Could you post a permalink to one?

Is this the dimming screen issue? If so, please post in the dedicated thread stickied in this forum for that.

unlimitedsounds wrote:Yea.. the program went from great to almost unuseable.

I wish I had any information, but I don't. There is at least one champ who uses appradio and has commented on posts and threads before. Unfortunately, appradio users are pretty rare and so the amount of development time spent on it is likely pretty small. You can still use Waze without appradio and that is how the vast majority of users interact with Waze. Similar with Blackberry and other old phone OSes having support dropped, Waze has to focus their efforts on those features which affect the majority of their userbase.

(At least, if I were in the business, that's how I would focus my time and money.)

This happens often for a reason, not random, but is annoying. Tap the screen, the north up button, then the crosshair. In some cases, this will not fix it.

I don't remember the distance threshold for report aggregation. Will need to check with Waze to determine if it should be changed. At some point when they are close, it doesn't matter that it merges them.

No, no alert settings are configurable. If there is enough distance, there usually be 3 turn notifications. Alert distances for hazards are also not configurable.

Why don't you just mute the navigation instructions from the front of the main menu? Most of the time, we don't need actual verbal instruction because it's on the screen.

Waze doesn't talk to the GPS chip. It just gets the data from iOS. It could be the phone might need to be rebooted because something in hardware or iOS has gone wonky. But since Waze doesn't and can't control the GPS system, it's not specific to Waze.

That's pretty bad, and on a different infrastructure even.

I have been having an issue with reporting gas prices. I am able to select the gas station and input the updated gas prices, but when I hit submit, sometimes the submission times out, and it will not let me resubmit the prices because I have left the vicinity of the gas station. This usually occurs when my phone is switching between data usage and wifi usage (I have Optimum Online, which has free hotspots for residential subscribers lined throughout many major roads in my area, and I have my phone set to automatically connect to them when they are within range to save on data usage). I am assuming that the switch between data and wifi is corrupting/dropping the submission data, and therefore it has a problem of pushing it through. Is there a way to improve the submission process by letting the app remember the GPS data of the gas station when we initially attempted to report the price, so that it is able to submit the correct price once the connection has been re-established?

This also happens occasionally when I submit road incidents, but to a much lesser extent. It will give me an error in my incident report, stating that I can attempt to submit the report later, but I have yet to find out how resubmit it.

Also, sometimes, I'll tap the report button, but the bottom status bar (where your ETA is usually displayed) will just state something to the effect of: "Location and GPS data recorded", without giving me the popup to let me submit the actual incident information. I then have to hit the report button again to get the full popup prompt, which could be several hundred feet down the road if travelling on a highway.

Hi everybody!

I'm new on waze, i tried to install it for the first time just 2 days ago. AND it wasn't a good experience. I can't manage to have the app working.

When lauching for the first time i was able to create an account. But when waze came on the map it immediately crashed and "back to desktop".

Every time i launch waze it displays the map just for a second and then close without letting me doing anything on waze.

I can send to a dev the lastcrsh plist.

BUT: i can have waze working by reinstalling AND not to loggin!!!! Since i login it crash. If i stay anonymous user i can use it.

I'm using last version of waze and ipad mini retina 64g with 3g.

Thanks for getting this app work!
