Noted today:
San Dimas

San D-eye-mes (I was so caught by the "eye" that I didn't make not of the "mas" pronounciation but I think it was "mes" which is close enough)

Should be San Dee-mus

I have had first hand experience with Waze omitting the first word of a road name.

When navigating with a left turn from eastbound Central Expy to northbound De La Cruz Blvd here, the app omits the "De" and says "La Cruz Boulevard". I have not tested from any other direction of travel or from any other connecting segments.

Waze v 3.9.5.0
TSS: Jane
Android 5.1.1

There were some bugs on some devices causing crashes, if that doesn't work for you, you can use 3.9.4.0.

I get 'Parse error'

'There is a problem parsing the package.'

for both of the above links after downloading, So I can't install them......


Is 3.9.x.x compatible with android 2.3.4?


Good question. apparently not.

On the bright side cardinals should work for you again.

I see that Jr probably needs a period, but why would Dr. say drive?

They were turning right to go north on that segment, and they said it was the default voice.

Can you confirm this has been fixed now please?

This wasn't my report, it was from a UR, so I don't know if it is working correctly or not. I will try to have another local editor try it out if I can. Thx

We did find a bug that would cause it, and have fixed it so it should be good now. Thank you

I can imagine that if you have not enough space for an updated apk, the application is short of space for putting TTS files too.
