Found a problem: exit through the menu button crashes the app. The icon remains in the top bar of the phone.

Exit through the back button works fine.

It was running quite well on my htc Incredible with the stock 2.1 ROM. As soon as I rooted, I started getting all the random issues people have been talking about in this thread. About a week after I rooted, I actually put a new ROM on it (CM 6.0.2 - Froyo based), and the problems continued.

Saw this thread (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3467). I uninstalled waze (skipped the backup/restore - took all of 3 minutes to set my options again) & reinstalled, and now it's running (mostly) like a champ again. The only hiccup I seem to notice now is when I hit 'Resume Manually', it just keeps on tracking me. I've got traces of me wandering around the mall, and I'm leaving 'Complete Standstill' warnings every time I get gas.

htc Dinc, unrEVOked + forever, CM 6.0.2, waze 1.9 from the market.

I sort of suspect that the older, less powerful phones are the ones having the force close and crashing troubles. That would explain why my friend's G1 crashes almost every time he tries to use it, while my Evo has rarely crashed at all.


That's a very good point. The only issue I've had is rebooting the phone if I get a phone call while I've got waze running. Usually, it's a couple of minutes into the call, so, if I remember, I've got time to shut down waze & continue the call. I'm running an HTC Incredible, stock 2.1. Hopefully, people are submitting the error reports to waze, they're looking at them, and are gathering some useful data from it.

Most of the discussion around the stability of the client was started before 1.9 was released and was being discussed in this thread, and it's just carried on. I too was hoping 'any day now' would have been quicker than 2 weeks away.

Ahhh, that explains it. I haven't read through the entire thread, but the only instability I've noticed has been a phone re-boot if I make/receive a call while waze is running. This was noted in another thread, and I've got a debug log ready to send in to the devs. We just took a trip from Indiana to Washington, DC, and didn't experience any shut downs with waze running the whole way.

Thanks for the insight!

I also get irritated about how the iPhone is given priority over everything else when it comes to upgrades. It's not just Waze, it's many other companies too. I'm very anti-iPhone (I think it's simply overpriced, overrated and over-loved, but don't get me started on that), but with Android rapidly gaining market share and overtaking the iPhone in some markets, things may change in the future.

ditto.

I must be pretty special. The client I've got reports 1.9.00.000, and it has since I signed up for waze 2ish weeks ago. I think I came across it on AppBrain.com, if that makes any difference or not. I've been puzzled why this post was here and so active...

We are working hard on our next Android version which is currently in internal beta. We are closing all the gaps so this version will have all the new features as in the iPhone one.

In addition we have improved the integration with the Android OS, so expect native input entry (full compatibility with swype, speech to text, etc) and some more.

As for stability, please understand that there are many different devices with many different OS versions some official some custom and so it's hard to get it right for everyone. We are testing with various devices internally to make sure it works perfectly and stable but need your help to figure out the remaining issues.

No final ETA yet for public beta but should be pretty soon.

I have the Samsung Moment from Sprint and I too have had many issues. I was running the stock 2.1 on it but recently rooted my phone. I still have an issue where my phone reboots but don't think it's due to Waze. Only sometimes. I still have some issues with navigation. Since I rooted my phone, Waze is a lot quicker. It used to take forever for the menu to come up or to zoom in or out. Now it's almost instantaneous. In my opinion, it's the stock android OS.

The only thing I was always curious about is why when I'm driving and my phone loses data connection due to an issue with the phone, not cuz I lost signal, is why does Waze stop tracking me with GPS? I'll get a target symbol around where my car on screen was and the car turns to an arrow. It's almost like it loses GPS signal also but I still have a good signal lock. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Its still in beta, however they did mention in the official post that they still had a bug with the fonts. Hence no street names yet, but I'm personally glad its stable.. street names next ;).
