This has to do with 4.2.1 and how auto Sleep is set up. My Google Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus are set up for 2 minutes auto Sleep. Screen dims exactly 2 minutes after major event like traffic pup up or Recalculate. Since I never follow Waze routes I get a lot of route recalculations. My Galaxy Tab 7.7 with 4.0.4 does not exhibit this behaviour.


Does this mean auto dim only works on 4.2 devices?

This is not a desired behaviour. It looks like Waze is fighting with with OS and wins. Screen dims for about 10 seconds and comes back bright. It is annoying when driving at night.[/quote]

Oh. I'd hoped it was an Amoled protection featuree

Wow, great news! The Low Battery popup was really annoying.

It was not possible to translate "ETA" - even when I forced it into the language file, it was still showing "ETA".

900k km?? That's distance from Sun to Mars :shock: :shock: Is waze prepairing for space navigation?
Because of the private space flights that are coming? :D

I wish not to crash after driving to Mars :mrgreen:

Finally reporting Gas price works on Galaxy Ace 2. Now we have different problems - texts are a little bit too high on lists (doesn't center vertically to white area).

Gas stations disappear from map menu after deselecting one.

Navigation error, don't know if it's Beta related or not.

I always allow automatic navigation to work and listen to voice prompts. When I'm also dropping off my kids at day-care, I just add a stop. I did that this morning. I also happened to have another stop this morning (before daycare) but I wasn't navigating to it. I turned Waze off at the first stop. I forgot to turn it back on when I got back in my car. After reaching my intermediate stop and dropping my kids off at daycare, I turned Waze back on. It automatically resumed navigation (both the stop at daycare and my final work destination). When I pulled out of the drive, instead of saying that I've reached my intermediate stop, it said "you have reached your destination at..." and quit all navigation. I was miles away from my normal work destination.

The procedure this morning was:
- Waze automatically started navigating to my Work address
- Add an intermediate stop from favorites list
- Shut Waze down
- Start Waze back up adjacent to intermediate stop point
- Waze says I've reached my final destination and ends navigation prompts

I won't drop off my kids at daycare again until Monday, but I'll try to remember to duplicate the error then. I may try to duplicate it sooner with a different intermediate stop point.

A small, but quite annoying one that has survived a long time:

1. Enter the Commute-O-Meter.
2. Press Home (Not Back).
3. Press Waze shortcut on home screen.

Result: Commute-O-Meter.
Expected result: The app =)

This is a bit annoying when trying to start Waze while driving.
