I'm using a HTC Desire HD, Android 2.3.5 and something seems to be prompting Waze to turn off the GPS every minute if it hasn't accuired a GPS position. This seems to med to be a strange behaviour with a technology that in it's most basic form needs 12 minutes to send and receive a full stream of data from satellite to receiver. The result is in any case that I don't get a GPS position in Waze without using another program to accuire the GPS position. It doesn't help that I live in Sweden a country so far north that we at best get a medium GPS satellite coverage.
I'm reverting to the last stable version (Google Play) and wait for the next beta-version to turn up hopefully better at accuiring a GPS position. This was an issue for me using the 117 beta as well.
Last night I borrowed my wifes phone: Samsung Galaxy Note and none of the above is true for that phone. Tomorrow going back to work after the weekend I will try to get a hold of another HTC Desire HD and see if my earlier problem translates to that phone as well. I'm starting to guess that the GPS chip somehow is the culprit. Getting back on the matter as soon as I can.
