today i had a nice trip to my workplace using my nexus one wifi hotspot abilities to share internet to my milestone...

when i came back home my milestone kept saying "searching for network" :(

brilliant idea comes to mind -> gets his milestone out of the box and uses it for waze sharing the nexus one internet conection -_-

no other workaround for now.

i noticed that waze never (or almost never, today my phone froze, but it could have been something else..) reboots my 2.2 android phone if its minimized.

When maximized i noticed that before rebooting, my "arrow" (i use the green arrow instead of a car), gets smaller, or the blue dot + circle appear, it then goes back to normal, and keeps tracking me, or the phone reboots...

if waz runs minimized, it still gives me points for new roads, as far as i could see, and tracks me too... right ?

you said more than once that you are working directly with google.. are they helping ?

ps: you also mentioned that you had fixed the crashes from pre 2.2 android versions, i guess those fixes were NOT released, right ? cause my motorola milestone with android 2.1 was far more usable than my nexus one, but it did crash a lot too. (it froze, or waze was closed, or similar, never rebooted)

thinking back a little... it may be a froyo thing, but in the END, waze should be coded in a way that DOES NOT overload it, and once that is acomplished, no reboots will happen...

once more, waze is the only app i know of capable of wrecking shuck havok

I forgot to mention that the droid 2 has 2.2 officially, as the only available android version too.

Droid X will have the 2.2 update soon, and so will the galaxy S line.


IT IS A FROYO THING !!

thats for sure, on 2.1 waze crashed, yes, it froze the phone, yes, and sometimes i had to do a battery pull... YES

but on 2.2 (stock, cyanogen, sense, whatever), my phone REBOOTS every few minutes if waze is in the foreground... before it would crash, more often if i multitasked.

now, it can't be used.

so it IS worse on froyo :(

ps: still, waze is the only app killing my phone like this, i tired other GPS apps, including google navigation, google maps, the google maps "mod" "brut", and whatnot

only wase kills my phone like this.

isn't 2.2/froyo now official for the motorola Droid and the HTC desire too ?

i do agree thats a thing with 2.2... but waze is the only app rebooting my phone :/

Also, on 2.1, it was already unstable, it would crash a lot, and from time to time, freeze my moto milestone.

too bad there is no way arround this for now :(

for my nexus running froyo its un-usable

it reboots my phone all the time ! :(

my screen never sleeps when running waze

And leaving waze running in background prevents the crashes (but also using it..)

i almost never drive in unknown areas, i tried it with full/low/half battery

i tried it with a car charger and without...


if a new version wont be out before SEPTEMBER 18th, then im a sad person....

ps: temperature has nothing to do with it, i have reboots now that the heat is rising, i had reboots on the ultra cold days of the past weeks (here in argentina).

after some experiments (all on android 2.2), i now know that the first time i run waze after changing my phone ROM, and wiping cache and dalvik-cache, i can make one "long" (30 to 40 minutes) trip.

then it all goes weird and i have constant reboots.

if i keep waze minimized it does not reboot my phone :/

any day now is getting way to long now for a new version :(
