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

Hi. I'm much more than bitterly disappointed.
I had a Lumia 720 with waze properly working.
Now a Lumia 640 XL and I can't accept T's and C's, so no WAZE!
I hope to have good news in a near future.

I'll survive without Waze.
Waze won't survive without users.

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!

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!

I've used waze for years bit I'm die hard windows phone user. The app doesn't talk or screen rotate anymore so I switched to CoPilot. CoPilot has almost killed me once and constantly tells me to turn down one way streets. I'm also without the added protection of knowing where the speed traps are. I was able to contribute alot to waze but now I'm stuck in no mans land....i would pay for this app, maybe try making us windows platform users pay for it since we are the few...Please reconsider abandoning us.

Just to bring everybody up to date who wants to post answers in the future.
Issues we were already talking about some pages ago:
No landscape mode
No Facebook integration
No groups integration (replaced right now by football teams)
High Battery consumption
No possibility of gas price updating

Furthermore, I recommend to post feature suggestions in the UserVoice-Forum since the Waze staff is not really reading this forum.

I'm missing a feature that allow me to record incidents of any kind later on the map.


That issue has already been discussed here. As you can see the suggestion has been declined by the Waze staff to prevent people from spamming the map.

Greetings,
Vatbub


This is useful I didn't know of it's existence!

Yep same sort of issue, however I've been resolving it by exiting out of the app, turning flight mode on and off then starting the app again on a Lumia 1020.[/quote]

I've noticed that I don't actually have to exit the app to do that, you can drag down from the top to open the notification screen and do it from there then slide it back up and bingo!

Anyone else using it on WIndows Phone 8.1 yet?
I updated recently and I've been getting problems with data connectivity, resolved by turning my phone on and off again but a bit annoying.
I'm on an HTC 8X and I was wondering if anyone else experienced similar?

Cheers!

Devs, please reconsider updating the WP app...at least respond to your users in this thread and tell us the score.


I don't normally post "me-too" messages, but in this case I'll make an exception. I've used Waze for over two years, first on Android and then on Windows Phone 8.x. I love Waze, but the Windows Phone version is kinda hinky. It also appears that changes have been made to the underlying server infrastructure that are causing issues. I would dearly love for a Waze update to parity with the Android and iPhone versions. I would even be willing to pay a modest price for the app.

Eric.
