This version does not start on my phone. It shows the waze startup screen for 10 or 20 seconds, then closes.

Running it again has the same result.

Oddly, when I start the new beta today, it no longer dies on startup. Maybe something was fixed on the server side?

- Fixed tiles refresh
- Less memory allocation at launch (affects 3G devices which have less memory), should prevent app halt/crash during startup

The problem I reported was on a 3Gs, sorry I did not include that.

I suspect it was a server side problem. The startup screen came up, but without the message in the upper part of the screen about 'waze wishes you...'. The next morning, this screen came up, and then the 'downloading language pack' message. I suspect it crashed not being able to connect or retrieve the language pack?

Routing starting working shortly after I posted the problem this morning, and is mostly working this evening.

I'll try the updated beta.

That's what I saw also. It started working the next day for me.

:) Very good. I was just logging in to ask if the version stamp was wrong. Mine downloaded the language pack just now, but when I checked the version stamp it seemed to still be 1.8.99.7.

I think they are full, but they should get back to you. Apple limits them to 100 ids for releasing test apps, so it's not a very big group they are allowed to test with.

A couple of us saw that also. Mine worked on the second day...
