Can't eat the berries

Post by TeamTJ
Why is it that even when I drive over a berry it does not eat it?

This happened to me twice yesterday...the ones with the gold on top (what's that mean, anyways?) so I didn't get the points.

Same here. I noticed that it only happens when I temporarily lose data connectivity (Vodafone is notorious for dropping its DNS here in Italy). Yesterday I picked up one blackberry then lost the waze site, failed to pick up the next two, regained connectivity and started collecting again. GPS was good throughout and I was on a long stretch of relatively straight road. It would be interesting to hear what the developers have to say about it...

I've missed half a dozen this way. It can't be because someone else got it just before me because I'm the only wazer in my area. I attribute it to bad GPS on the iphone.

It happened to me tonight and i drove over the berry 3 times and never got it. Happened earlier as well, but i didn't try to drive over it repeatedly.

I recall reading that bonuses can be driven over by three or so individual Wazers, not sure if they have done the same to the blackberries. If they have, then there's likely no way 2 other people have driven over the ones I'm having problems with.

I've noticed it happens when munching berries in quick succession.

Hi,
have you paid attention to your zoom level? If you have been zoomed out it might have looked as if you drove over the berries but having a closer look they might have been somewhere else than your position!?

Regards

Peter

It usually means someone else has eaten the berry right before you, but is still showing. That stinks right...
