At the beginning of this page I reported a problem of slowness/freezing with waze while routing.
Well, after reading the problems with hangout reported by others, I decided to disabled the option that made it as default SMS program.
Now waze is more responsive and has no problem of rotation.
But, the speedometer needs to be smarter, I mean, waze needs to be more responsive to realize when I am increasing or decreasing speed, because if it thinks I am driving at XX speed while I am at YY speed, the calculation of the time to the next corner or change of route will be passed.
(sorry for my english, I speak portuguese).

For many versions now, I have experienced daily crashes of Waze. I have finally been able to understand the fail-point and can reproduce it 100% of the time.
If I touch the screen when Waze is displayed and it goes into the "freeze-map" mode (in other words, the map doesn't move while I am driving, but stays at the position that I have moved it to and the "cross-hairs" icon is displayed - not sure what the mode is called officially) and then shift to another app by means of a screen-touch gesture (for example, using the "GMD Gestures" app I apply a two-finger downward swipe to launch my music app) then Waze crashes a few seconds afterwards while Waze is running in the background.
The Waze crash is very specific when launching another app via a gesture-based app (e.g., GMD Gestures). Waze does not crash if it is in freeze-map mode and I press the Home button to go to the home page or when using a sidelauncher to launch another app.

What seems to me to be happening is that while Waze is displayed and then launching an app using a touch-screen gesture, Waze goes into "freeze-map" mode and then while on the move, Waze tries to update the map's location but the freeze-map mode interferes somehow and causes the error.

I would be happy if someone could confirm this. I am running stock JB 4.3 (crash also happened on 4.1.2) on Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9300).

I'm having this same problem - been happening for a while.

Hi,

Here is a little bug when in 3D view. Here is the scenario to reveal it :
  1. Select a destination to be guided to
  2. Select a point on the map and click on the (i)
  3. Chose "Go" (the arrow)
  4. Chose "Add a Stop"
=> Here it is : return to the map is done using 2D view.
This setting is not saved : at next opening of the app, 3D view (the setting I've chosen) is reapplied.
When selecting "New Drive" at step 4 return to the map is done in 3D view.

Regards.

I've experienced the same yesterday (and at least once more a couple of weeks ago). I've then "successfully" sent debug logs (which took hours), yet to report it.


I noticed this yeserday, and repeated it today as well, came on here to report it.

HTC One X, Android 4.1.1 (current TMobile-UK build).

  • Select a route via any method.
  • Long-press on the map until the marker pin appears.
  • Tap the info box and select the Go option
  • Select the "Add a Stop" option

On return to the map view, the zoom, recentre and orientation buttons are missing, and long-pressing on the map has no effect. This state persists until the app is reloaded.

Seems that the change of screen's orientation/layout has some issue.

In my case, waze is very slow when routing, mainly when the route has to rotate the design of the map, I mean, when car makes a turn and the roads has to be rotated in screen. I also noticed that the speedometer is "in low motion" increase... while I am driving at a steady speed of 60 km/h, waze reports, 24, 35, 44, until it reaches 60 km/h...It makes waze loose to understand I made a detour or turned in a diferent street. speedometer was very accurate in previous version.
This behavior was noticed in this last version. It also has difficult to fix GPS, loosing signal most of the times, many times in a route, which makes me impossible to be guided by waze.
I have LG P880 (optimus 4x), ROM CM 10.1.3 (4.2.2 android) with no tweak installed.
