I am experiencing a 'bug' of sorts on the Nokia Lumia 1020. The screen goes to black after a timeout and I can't change/find this timeout in the settings. No issues otherwise with the Android or iOS version of the app....

Phone getting hot is OK... We are used to it by now... Playing any 'more serious' game gives the same effect.
For me the biggest flaw is that, while using Waze the battery drains more than it charges (L920 GDR2)...
today I started from 100% fresh off the charger - was driving and wazing (3g network) for about ~50mins, while constantly charging with Nokia cr-200 - at the end battery is drained down to 65%.... that means I couldn't even use it for 3 hours with this charger.

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.

Some more feedback now that I've had a chance to use it some.

1) the Audio is kinda quiet, even with volumes set to max
2) can you route the audio, and hopefully in the future, the mic through Bluetooth?
3) Gonna throw in speech recognition again, I really think some focus needs to go towards this.
4) phone gets really warm, uses Bart faster than my 3.1a charger can give, I've got a 4.2a charger in the mail now. But, if there's anything that can be done on this, it would be greatly appreciated, as right now, long road trips are out for waze.

other than that, great job guys!

Welcome to Waze! First things first, as Alan posted above, be sure to search the forums before posting.

You should also follow the forum guidelines and search both the forum and wiki for answers already available for most questions.

Second to your issue, this is a common complaint not only for waze but for most GPS apps due to the constant GPS usage, screen time, and possibly having it plugged in. Having the phone mounted in the sun can exacerbate issues. One common suggestion is to "vent mount" your phone, having air blow across it will keep it cool.

First thank you for your great work. I have a problem, when I navigate, my Nokia Lumia 820 Windows Phone 8 overheats, I notice the same issue on my iPhone 4S, did you see that?, excuse me for my bad english, I'm from Guatemala

Creating a Waze account is much better experience overall, IMO. It looks like you got an account set up, so good for you! Once the facebook connect issues are resolved, you'll be able to link later.

I had never heard of your app before, but just saw on Reddit that this had been released for Windows Phone. It's a great looking app that I'm excited to try out, but I do have one small complaint.

When I hit the "Connect to Facebook" button during initial setup, nothing happened. After setting up, I found that button again in the Scoreboard area, and when I hit it there the button disappeared and I was not provided a way to connect to my Facebook.

My device is a Samsung ATIV S Neo from Sprint with GDR3 installed. Thanks for looking into it!

First let me thank the Waxe crew for releasing the WP8 Version of waze today!

Dies the WP version lack voice recog for reporting? I can't find any settings for it. I guess I find that odd, because that's singularily the biggest importance to me on this app. It strikes me as an odd feature to lack, considering how well tell-me is integrated into other, less important and lesser apps. I figured voice recog would be a given. :/

is there a timeline for when this feature will be added?


not trying to whine, just expressing concern for a feature. Again thanks! :)
