Waze crashes due to G-Sensor?

Everytime when I try to use the navigation app Waze, Waze crashes.

Normally crashes Waze when I rotate the phone (going from portrait to landscape). It also crashes if I leave the programme via the home-button, if I for instance have forgotten to switch on the GPS. The programme also crashes if I receive a incoming phone call.

Anyone else with a Sony Xperia Sola with these problems or is it only my handset?

Thanks for the info. I will let our developers know but I don't think there will be any changes made from our side just for the sake of one application.

Re: Waze crashes due to G-Sensor?

This sounds more related to the navigation application on the handset, have you tried removing the app and reinstalling it?

Re: Waze crashes due to G-Sensor?

I reinstalled the app, but the problem still persist. After the reinstall can I rotate the phone more times before it hangs (3-5 turns). Also installed it on a Samsung Galaxy Mini (about 1,5 years older handset with much weake CPU) and on that one could I rotate the phone for over a minute. Could probably continue longer, but I got tired.

I posted the same question on the Waze forum & a member did have the same problem on Xperia T & U

Re: Waze crashes due to G-Sensor?

For informations seems the problem have been solved with the ICS update. Haven't used it for driving yet, so I don't know how it reacts when receiving phone calls, but I can sit and rotate it without any problem.
