This leads me to a new suspicion: I had reboots nearly all the time when it was so hot in Germany in June/July. When it became so much cooler, I suddenly didn't experience any reboots anymore. Then I got several reboots again last Wednesday, and guess what, it was the hottest day since weks.
Above all, the sun was shining quite fiercely when I drove home, and it seems to me that my phone gets heated up much more if the sun is shining directly at it through the windshield and/or the open roof.
So, my current theory is that the problem with reboots (maybe not with the force closes some seem to experience, but I've seen none) is not really a bug in waze's code but the fact that waze is the one app that heats up my phone most.
If it's quite hot in the car, the phone might overheat and either be rebooted by some security function in Android (though other means like the iPhone's "Please wait for the phone to cool down" would make more sense here) or be forced to reboot by some flipped-over bits in kernel memory or random outcomes of CPU calculations. If some bits run havoc within waze's memory, this might even explain force closes.
I guess it's more likely flipped bits than a security function as I sometimes had no reboots although the phone got so hot I could barely touch it while on other days it was only "rather hot" but there were reboots.
Still, I never experienced a reboot on those cloudy days when the car was not heated up when I drove home, nor did I ever get one when I drove to work in the morning, so I do suspect that heat is at least one of the problems here. My car being quite dark und thus very hot on sunny days might add to the problem.
Any similar experiences?
as predicted Waze crashed several times over the weekend when in front just running or when you tried to touch a button. But it's definitely no heat problem, because several times I use various navigation software parallel like Waze, Google Navigation and Navigon. Only Waze will crash or reboot the phone even when you don't touch it. The worst part is, that it crashed as soon as soon as it had to load a new map tile. When you restart it, it tries to load this tiles again and crashed instantly. This goes on for at least 10 times, which becomes quite annoying. Now I just let in run in the background and don't touch it at all. If it crashes in the background I don't care anymore, because even for the parts I drove I still have no edit permissions after 4 days.
As for the heat problem, I just placed my phones so that a constant flow of cool air from the air conditioning will keep the phone at a cool temperature.
So, now I have 500 kms of streets I can't edit perfectly because of the lack of constant permission. I wonder how many points one must have to be allowed a little more permissions?!
It's just frustrating!!! If Waze pays my gas bill I will gladly just drive around all day, but I don't drive around just so maybe Waze will give me edit permissions on the 4th or 5th run... no way.
