It just happened again, this time I was in debug mode. Logs uploaded a moment ago.

Is this version a release candidate? I was just wondering as it doesn't install in Debug mode and beta has been removed from the splash screen ...


I'm still finding it very fussy when on a GPRS or EDGE network. It just seems to loose connection to the Waze servers; sometimes it shows the connection is lost or, sometimes it it shows you're connected but when you try and report something you get the "not connected" message. Despite not being connected to Waze I can use the net with other apps (eg speedtest.net) sometimes the only way to force it to reconnect is to toggle Airplane mode on and off, then it will connect immediately.

One of the things I liked about Waze back in the early days is how well it managed to download the maps whist driving with the slowest of connections but now it seems most at home on 3G, which sadly rules out most of the UK road network.

I've found this on previous versions and reported it before. In some areas, the network speed is so poor that when Waze tries to send data back to the server for sending a report, it loses the heartbeat, or connection to the server because the network can't handle the traffic. I found this repeatedly while on a road trip through lots of Edge areas. I started a thread about it, too. After a while, the heartbeat or server connection is able to get the response it needs and shows online again. The bug caused me to lose dozens of map issue reports on the road trip.

Yes I should clarify that in my experience this is not new for this beta, I'm not sure when it started, perhaps it's just gotten worse as more users came to Waze and it had more and more features added.

Either way the network connection for v3.x is nowhere near as stable as it was in 1.x and 2.x :cry:

Have you iOS people had the closure button removed too? Waze, can you give some insight as to why? I was REALLY looking forward to seeing this in 3.5, and it would be a real game changer!

Yes, it's gone. IN the last beta, it was there, but it didn't do anything.

What I'd like to see is a Detour button, that would recalculate a different route from the next turn, as if the next turn was impossible, due to a closed bridge, parade, construction, marathon, sinkhole, civil unrest, etc. I wonder if that's what the function of this was supposed to be.

My guess is that it WAS a closure, which if on the suggested route you come across one, as you say, the next turn would be cancelled and thrown onto the map like a traffic report with the Not There button, or just drive through it to clear it.
Shame they got rid :-(

I noticed yesterday that the "Avoid Highways" function is now labeled "Avoid Major Highways. But as far as I can tell, it still only avoids Freeways. I don't know why they don't just call it "Avoid Freeways" since that's what the users want and that's what it does.
