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.

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

thanks!


I have the same problem on a Lumia 521.


Same on Lumia 620 and 1020


Happens to me once in a blue moon, HTC 8X and Nokia 521. Seems to be related to having a weak signal or slow connection. I get it occasionally when submitting reports too. Not a big deal but pressing the back button fixes it.

Thank you for great application.

I am also using Car Dash (http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=5c8 ... b7d4a8c652) application. Inside this application I want to run your application, but your application is not appearing inside Car Dash, the reason mentioned by Car Dash that your application is not providing URI lunch.

If it is right please add it and let them know in order to add your application inside their app, or if You want I can contact with them.
If not and you are providing URI lunch please let them or me know in order to proceed adding of Waze inside Car Dash.

Thanks in advance!


I just downloaded Car Dash, it looks like a cool app. It is working with Waze for me, when I click on a destination it fires up Waze and Waze starts navigating to it.

I'm afraid not. Screen will be gone, but I have the feeling that the calculation is then done on the phone in stead of the server. And on the phone it only looks at the shortest route, not the fasted.


I know for a fact that it still calculates the fastest route in my case. Either way if you have any doubts, hit the routes button.

Mender, Waze works great on my HTC 8X running the latest version of 8.1

I say go for it, the changes in 8.1 are amazing! :)

Yes, I have the "Show on Map" settings correct.

If anyone with an 8.1 update does not have this problem, please let me know so that I can trouble shoot elsewhere.

Thank you.


Waze works fine for me on both my HTC 8X and Nokia 521, both running their latest builds of 8.1.
