Hi!
Thanks Waze for coming to WP!
I noticed that I can only view the map with the phone (nokia lumia 925) in portrait orientation, not in landscape.
cheers!

Recalculating Route Spinning Icon

Postby fakawi » Thu Nov 28, 2013 12:56 am

the "Recalculating Route" spinning icon layer does not disappear even after Waze has recalculated the route. Navigation continues with the spinner spinning in the foreground.
(Nokia Lumia 925)

(pressing "Back" button to shut down and then cancelling shut down will get rid of the spinner)

thanks!

Great application, but several drawbacks:

1. Crashing constantly when running in background or under locked screen - experience nose diving because of this
2. Terminates battery very quickly (not sure if this can be addressed)

Tested on Nokia 920

Looked at the rev of the app that I just downloaded for my WP8 Nokia 1020 and it says ver 1.0.0.0 on the Store page. I went to delete a favorite that I stored and followed the directions on the wiki and the only option I get is to add it, no remove. So it looks like any favorites that I enter stay there.
I have been using Trapster religiously but am going to give this a try for South Central PA and see how it works.

Waze only starts first time after installation on Nokia Lumia 625. After closing it(going back to homescreen) next time you try to start the app begins startup sequence but crashes before you can see the navigation view. Restart of phone dosen't help. Closing app with "back arrow" gives same resultat. Uninstalling and reinstalling Waze helps first time the app starts but then it's the same again.

I fixed the battery draining issue for my HTC 8X by getting an Anker charger. Cheap chargers claim they will put out 2+ amps, but in reality this is only if you have an iPad connected, due to the setup of the port anything else will charge at a lower rate like .5 amp. The Anker charger has two different ports on it, the port labeled "Android" will charge up my HTC 8X and my Windows tablet faster than even the wall AC adapters will. I can use Waze all day and it will still charge it up to 100% full even if it wasn't.

To add on top of my last comment regarding the Anker charger, it works great on my Nokia 521 too. I had to send my 8X in to be repaired, so I picked up a cheap 521 as a spare, and have been using it for about a week without any drain issues.

joostboers, get a better charger, I was having the same issue with a cheap charger.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D82O68Y/ This one fixed my issue, and will even charge my tablet faster than my AC adapter.

Yes it will charge basically everything if you have a USB cable for it. I have used mine to charge cameras, PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS, bluetooth headsets, multiple Android/Windows phones.

The Apple port will charge iPads and iPhones at the maximum possible rate, everything else is just half an amp, which is plenty for most devices. The Non-Apple port is the one I use for my Asus tablet and my Windows phones as that is the port that outputs at the 2+ amps you will need to keep charged while Wazing.

Good news regarding power drain, the latest beta of the Windows version uses quite a bit less power, so you won't drain as fast if you aren't on a charger or have a low spec one.

This isn't an issue with Waze but your car. Not all the radios on the Acadia support that functionality. I have the same issue with Waze not being able to broadcast audio over bluetooth in my GMC Canyon, but on my motorcycle it can and it works great.
