A blog about technology, automation and life hacking.
you are doing a great job with waze porting !!!
since it is already working on wp7, would it be possible to compile it for desktop windows ?
thank you !
Just out of curiosity, why do you need Waze to run on desktop Windows?
The Symbian version contains Windows sln file that can be compiled for Windows (http://waze.s3.amazonaws.com/src/waze_wm_symbian_src_2.0.zip) and uses COM ports in order to communicate with the GPS.
Naturally, this is very old version of the product but should provide you pretty good experience in moving around the map, calculating routes etc.
Hello, I’m trying to find out where/how I can download WAZE for use in Israel on my Windows 7 mobile phone. Some say you can’t use Waze on Windows 7 here, but reading this blog it looks like you can. My phone is LG Quantum.
Sorry, I’m not a techie. Help appreciated.
You need developer license for installing my version. Get one from https://dev.windowsphone.com/en-us/join
Once you have it, install WP SDK and use Application Deployment tool to install the XAP file inside https://dl.dropbox.com/u/344251/WazeWP7/0.9.9.6/WazeWP7.zip
thanks for the quick reply, im trying to integrate waze into car-pc running on windows, have already tried android emulator – horribly slow, windows mobile emulator – all the resolution is screwed up and slow, and then ran into your port.
i assumed that with WP7 port ready, compiling it for windows would be a (relatively) simple task of recompiling with the right libraries (is it ? )
i’ll take a look at the symbian source.
thank you !
Hi, just a quick question, could this app be available at the marketplace?
Still checking the legal issues with putting GPLv2 app in marketplace
GPLv2 and marketplace… Waze seems to had the same trouble with the iphone version, no ?
Thank you for the job you made
Maybe this is why they converted it to closed source code for iPhone and Android
Is there any way to install waze without an unlocked/developers phone?
Unfortunately no. I cannot upload it to the app market since MS prohibits GPL code.
Hello. Can you fix the Problem that the Sound of Lg e900 goes?
Can you better describe the problem please?
Thanks a lot for your enthusiastic work ! Waze is clearly the most missing app on WP7 marketplace. so having found your project I am anxious to try it out. Just wanted to clarify basics : my WP7 is dev locked, so if I Chevron unlock my Omnia7 (which is on Tango 8773 version), will it be enough to install your app ? or will it require some more software purchase just to be able to install it ?
Today Chevron sells tokens officially for 9$ so it’s a small pay for getting this in.
Also, I was looking for detailed instructions for installing your app (already downloaded) after I get my phone unlocked … assume you have them somewhere on the site, I just did not find it.
Thanks in advance
Once you dev unlocked you device, you need to install WP SDK from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=27570
After installation is over, run “Application Deployment” and point it to the XAP file you downloaded from my download page https://meirtsvi.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/waze-for-wp7-downloads/
As of a couple days ago, the maps stopped rendering on the latest version. It still shows other wazers and hazards and such, but not the underlying maps… In Ohio, USA. Sprint HTC Arrive running a custom firmware from leadpoizon.
From what I figured out, these are server side issues. I hope Waze will fix them soon.
היי מאיר. רציתי לדעת אם יש אפשרות להתקין את מה שעשית על מכשירי הוייןפון8 החדשים?
ראיתי שמישהו ניסה ולא הצליח לכן אני מניח שהגרסה כמו שהיא לא תעבוד.
I have tried and succeed , but when I run it as stand alone and not on the debugger I get a connection error: “Network Connection is not available” . Wher can I check it in the code? I run it on HTC 8X.
WP7.5 apps cannot be executed on WP8 without converting them using some cloud service. Since this is unofficial version I don’t think it will be possible to use this service.
Check out the latest version on the downloads page. It is fixed there.
But its working on my wp8. The only issue is the connectivity.
יש בידי לומיה 920, איך מתקינים את הקובץ? ניסיתי להוריד ישירות למכשיר, וזה לא נתן לי להתקין.
you will need dev license in order to install the XAP file. Once you have dev license, install the SDK and use the deployment tool to install the XAP.
I have created WAV files for Spanish voice guidance. Can I include them in XAP file? I tried to compile but failed … maybe I coud send WAVs to you so you add Spanish support 🙂
Please let me know what didn’t work during the compilation. If it complains on missing font, simply find the two ttf files inside the code and install them, then restart visual studio and compile.
