Interesting... There is a thread in the Navigation or Search forum regarding an issue with certain Places. They do happen to have numbers in them.

Actually, it's in this forum: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=96599

+1!


The problem is that by default iPhone users (unlike Android) have no option to report a car stopped on road so have to resort to this.

This is one of those stupid bugs that Waze seem unwilling to fix yet would involve about 1 minute of a programmers time. (I know this because with every new release I have to fix it myself and it takes me less than a minute).

I've lost track of how many times I have reported this but still Waze does not fix it.

The final prompt should still give you enough time to actually act; instead, you'd better already be in the correct lane and on the brakes, or else you'll miss the turn or exit. I almost did on the freeway drive I did the other day, and found myself second-guessing because of it. The final prompt should come early enough to allow me to change one last lane on the freeway or to slow down for a turn. Likewise, the second prompt, at 0.5 mi, is definitely not early enough on the freeway to change multiple lanes in high-traffic situations, especially in fast-paced heavy city traffic. 1/4 mile is fine for city speeds, but the second prompt should be given a full mile away at freeway speeds, perhaps with 3/4 mile around 55 mph and 1/2 mile around 40 mph.

I am having the same problem. It tells me to "turn right in 375 feet" as I'm making the right turn.
Please fix this! Not very helpful when I'm not sure where I'm going!

I don't have a large enough data set (only a set of one) to say if this was the cause of the effect, but it's worth noting that I used ##@restorefav (a function I didn't know existed until just now!) and my searches were saved for what appeared to be 8-10 hours. Might be less, but definately longer than they had been. I can confirm 4+hours.

Is this something anyone can do? If so, how? :)

Dear Waze support,

I found a problem when logging into my account on my iPad 1 3G (32GB), iOS 5.1.1

When I click on "Already a Wazer" button, the app quits to main menu. Tried reinstalling without success.

I made a short video (with a crappy phone) to demonstrate:

Hope to have it fixed soon! Please let me know if you need logs or something.

Had the exact same problem after the last upgrade. Waze just crashed during startup or the map flashed for a few minutes and crashed then,at every start it begun to download "new prompts" but never quite managed. I uninstalled the app and re-installed it yesterday and so far it seems to be working nice again. I had it connected to my FB account so all the points and favorites are still there after reinstall.

If that's a gen 1 iPad, I'll bet the problem is too little ram. Close out all apps and restart your iPad and see if it works then. I frequently have similar issues on my gen 1 iPad with certain apps and that has been the only way I can get them to run. I can't wait to dump this iPad for a fresher model.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I already tried it. I know it has low RAM but Waze runs well without logging in.
I believe it's something with the login routine. Also the app quits when I try to register an account ( Settings -> Account & Login ).

Just checked on my G1 iPad and I have 3.8.0, I see my name, user name, and email. I'm not seeing any issues on the iPad front. But I don't ever use the iPad for Waze. That's what my Android phone is for.
