Something weird with Waze

Yesterday, around midnight I drove around with Waze for the Android where all of a sudden, the program exited! We tried to re-run it, but it persistent, and each time it re exited!

We tried to run Waze in my friend's Nokia E72, but it exited there too!

Thinking that it's weird that Waze exited on two different devices, I turned off the 3G internet connection on my Android. Suddenly, Waze didn't exit!


  • Waze received a command from it's home server, that caused it to crash.
  • This command was probably executed in a part common to both Phones. Probable Possibilities are a common C\C++ code, or an SQLite statement...

I wonder what was so important to execute on our devices, that it could not be tested properly before hand...
