Weird. Are you sure it is waze activating the camera? I would turn logging on then submit the logs when it happens again and contact support with the time and date of submitting the logs. If I remember correctly you can flip logging on/off by navigating to 2##2, but you better search nanorep or the wiki if 2##2 is not the correct command.

I've had that with one old Android version, but I can't remember which. Sometimes when the map auto returns to current location or I pan in certain ways. But I couldn't put my finger on it.

However, the OP sees the camera view not just the sound. My guess is that it is a hardware button or some shortcut that accidentally activates the camera. The logs would show if Waze has anything to do with it. I just hope he doesn't forget to report back here :grin:

I too have always wondered what it was...I assumed it was my Waze Icon getting ready to munch on road goodies.

I think I know what the OP means.
When scrolling around the map on my S2, randomly it seems, the app will make a click sound. It does sound like a camera shutter a bit, but I assure you it isn't taking photos.
Could be an in built screenshot function though?
Never did find out what it was...
