The most recent version of HWY Radar will run about 20 minutes and then I get an App Stopped Running message. It actually goes into background mode rather than actually stopping.
I've tried clearing the cache, uninstalling and reinstalling but no joy. Odd thing is that this only happens in a moving vehicle; I can leave the app running for hours at home and no issues. I guessed that my cars bluetooth connection might be the problem but shutting it off hasn't helped. The only other difference between house and car is obviously movement.
Any ideas?

Does it give you the option to submit a crash report? That is the fastest way for the developer to figure out what is causing the issue.

This should also probably be moved to the Highway Radar subforum: https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?forums/268/

Yes I've submitted several crash reports but no response so far. I'll keep experimenting to try to isolate the problem. It's very strange.

Galaxy A5 (2017) and a Galaxy J3 both have the same problem. I recently turned on app's Google Location Assist option, so I'll try turning that off, since the problem only occurs when I'm moving, not stationary at home.

Is this happening using the map feature? Both the A5 and J3 are fairly under powered.

I thought the same thing, but I've turned map display off and it still happens, but only when in a moving car. Stationary at home it stays on-screen for hours. It's very strange and hard to pin down.

If it works while stationary and only crashes while moving, I suspect that it has to do with GPS not being able to keep up. My daughter had a J3 back in 2016 and it was always having issues. Same with the A5.
How long has it been since they have been updated?

Both phones are running the most recent software updates pushed from Samsung. The A5 updated just a few weeks ago in fact, so perhaps something changed then. Hwy Radar has been working fine for several months since it first became available. I'm guessing at what the source of my problem is.

Sorry, I was out this week and for some reason, I didn't get a notification of this thread. I have the crash reports collected, investigating the problem.
If there's anything more I can tell you about this, please let me know.

Thanks for offering your help but Google Play itself collects fairly enough crash analytics for me to investigate the issue. That was just a silly mistake that caused crash whenever you approach an alert closer than 1km with metric units in the application.

I've just pushed v2.0.4 where this bug is fixed.

Everything seems stable again. Thanks for such a quick response Ferius. This app just gets better and better.
