Downgraded to version 1.5.2 yesterday and actually now wazing is fun again on my HTC Hero!

What happened in v1.9 that made it so much slower even when all fancy stuff is disabled? Will the v2.0 be faster or will it only fix crash issues?

It got much worse for me after my phone was upgraded to 2.2 yesterday. Worked for about 5 minutes of a 30 minute drive to work this morning. I have had to pull the battery out of the phone at least 5 times today. Was working ok before 2.2, pretty much unusable at this point.

I found a little bug in the new version 1.8.99.105. If you go to the Scoreboard and try to enter your Facebook name and password it doesn't allow any text. First it takes forever with the "Loading" message and when it displays the FB screen, you can click on the fields for name and pw, but it doesn't open the on-screen keyboard and if you use the Milestone hardware keyboard you can't enter any text.

PS: Trying the alternative login screen doesn't work too.


I get the same behavior on my HTC Desire. If I click the back button it seems like there is another box of some kind behind the loading box because a single click just remove a drop shadow behind the loading box. Another back click leave me at the connect page without any possibility to enable the keyboard.

It has been working quite well for me, during the summer, but recently I started getting reboots while navigating as well. I haven't found a pattern yet other than I think it crashed at the same place twice, will check that tomorrow.

Woah, you can EDIT from the client now!? Is this new, or maybe I just noticed the Properties function?

Editing street properties does not work, the app crashes after pressing the confirm button.

Hadn't noticed any battery issues, but same here, exit is clean now with this version. :)

Updates and fixes:

* Large log outputs while navigating (which is probably the reason for the freezes and crashes)
* Navigation bar fixes
* Physical keyboard numbers and symbols input
* UI fixes in Data Usage dialogue
* Gracefull exit on shared library failure


Is this why Waze appears to be using a lot of internal storage space? 4.7M application (expected, I guess) but 2.16M of data on my Nexus One.

What's using 2.16M of internal storage space? Surely it uses the SD card for data (maps etc)?

My hypothesis is that while in Waze touch input near the bottom or in the bottom half of the screen is perceived as touch input at the very bottom of the screen.

When trying to report a problem on the bottom half of the Nexus One while in Waze, i am often presented with reporting a 'foursquare check-in' report, though i'm trying to report a 'chit chat'. It usually takes several tries to get to the 'chit-chat' report. Once i'm in to the chit chat, i want to enter a description, so i tap the description text box (near the top of the screen). No problem. I'm in the text box now, the keyboard pops up. Now i'm not using the android keyboard but Swype (you swipe to each letter in the word to create your text). Now i feel this way because in the Swype keyboard you can half your Swype path be recorded. When i start typing any key away from the bottom of the keyboard, that touch input is immediately recorded as a touch at the bottom of the screen. I assume this is what is happening when i am in the 'select reports' screen as well (why i get a foursquare check-in report when i want a chit chat).

This is hard to explain but is anyone else experiencing a similar issue on your Nexus One with Waze? This has not happened in any application besides waze since i've had this Nexus One (3 months).

Yeah, that sounds like "Nexus One Screwy ClearTouch2000". Touch one spot, registers elsewhere.

Next time it happens, go into standby for a second, hit power again.. Unlock as needed. Is it fixed?

I see this periodically, but not at all restricted to just in Waze.. In fact not sure I've ever seen it in waze.

I have had this exact same issue a few times. It's very annoying because it only happens with Waze. No other application causes this to happen.

Here is how I fix it most times. I lock the phone with the toplock button and then unlock it again after a couple of seconds. About 75% of the time the screen is fine. The other 25%... well that requires me having to power the phone down completely and restart it again. :cry:

Oops, you beat me to it. Bingo. I almost didn't buy the N1 because of this and other problems with the touchscreen..
