Where is the right place to post reports about typos and errors in the Norwegian language version? I spotted at least 3 typing errors on the cagegory page alone...

I have the latest version, just downloaded it 20 mins ago.

I'm running this version on my Samsung Galaxy SIII.

Gennerally I am very pleased with the way it works, but now I have to set it to night mode manually. It will only show day mode. I guess this has something to do with me living north of the arctic circle and that the sun stays below the horizon all day this time of year. I guess that sun below / above horizon calculations controls the automatic mode, and this gets confused when it is below all day.
My old Garmin GPS had a similar problem.

Hi! (again...)

The automatic day / night mode does not work on my waze. It worked as it should before the sun receded below the horizon all day. I live about 400 km north of the arctic circle. The sun will stay below untill January 19, and this forces me to use manual night mode.

My set-up:
Waze 3.5.1.4
Phone: Samsung Galaxy SIII
OS: Android 4.1.1

Hi,

I'm running waze on HTC Hero 2.3.7 flashed with custom rom Shpongledeck v3.7 (kernel version 2.6.29.6-flykernel-13 eran@ubuntuD #253).

When I first installed waze, it runs smoothly for the first 2-3 weeks.

Now, here are issues that I have:
1. Force closed and automatically rebooted my phone on numerous occasions.
2. Now every time I start waze, I received error stating that it "failed to initialize. No network connection". When I click OK, it just exit.

I uninstalled and reinstalled few times - it worked one or two times and then the issues reappear.

I like waze so much that I don't want to switch to any other GPS app :-(

Please help!
nqjoe

When Waze is in focus it blocks Bluetooth AVRCP pause commands. Previous track/next track commands work fine, but pause is by far the most important.

When driving, a user should be able to pause music using a headunit with AVRCP without taking eyes off the road. As it is now, you need to switch to another app before you can pause.

Install ok.

LG P500 Android 2.3.3

All the bugs and bad things from PREVIOUS/PREVIOUS beta.

0. Popup event radius 5km is too big. Allow to choose much smaller radius or disable popups at all while stopped.

1. Searching for gas stations bring results using BRAND line. It makes it hard to understand which gas station is meant. Please use NAME tag, because we use it to make short description of Gas station (brand + street or district where it is located).

2. After receiving gas station/any other category results and showing them on map, if I tap any result icon and then tap on map, all result disappear. After rotating phone they appear again. But disappear again if I tap any other result.

3. In landscape mode black bar on top interferes with map North arrow on the right top.

4. If I have working route, and want to add stop DIRECTLY FROM MAP, i long press on some place, select MORE, ADD stop on the way - and it breaks current route, makes new route to selected place, and asks to NOW add a stop. That's wrong. You should be able to add point on the map AS stop on the way to current route from map long press.

5. Watch the guided tour video: "Cannot play video. Sorry, this video cannot be played." How to edit the map video shows only half screen.

6. And please make that menu NOT SCROLLABLE - just FULLSCREEN. I do not take earlier explanations. Fullscreen menu is much safer and comfortable. Or at least make that 3x3 block in portrait mode, there is enough place for that. In landscape mode it is pretty ok with 2x4 block.

Good things:
Preferred gas type saved after reinstall.
Seems to work a little less laggier.

This may be related to system resources. Waze is much improved for me as long as I restart the phone every day after applying updates. Background processes are the usual Android, plus antivirus, plus Whatsapp. Free RAM after restart is approx 120MB.


THIS! I restart the phone every day now. Otherwise after some waze launches it keeps loosing GPS all the time. After restart all is ok. For a day. However I did not see such behavior with other apps. So I believe waze is breaking something in gps settings for some time.

Some more bad things:

A) After successfully updating fuel prices make windows with prices automatically close, otherwise I have to press back or try to press that small "X" on top.

B) When receiving fixed radar message, I can press only "Not there" button, which is very big. Make there button "OK" and only then "not there". Small "x" is too small and again.

C) When receiving any other message "not there" button is first, which makes many people press it first. Change it with "thank you" button.

Lost GPS 3 times today. Forgot to put in to debug mode. Why betas are not in debug by default?
