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.

Regardless a fix has been pushed to make the cardinals backwards compatible again. So you should start hearing North South... In the next few days, even without upgrading.

I only have 23MB

Remove the old one (only 4MB because majority is on SD card) and some clean up and I could maybe get 29-30MB


I'd need at least 40MB to install it before I could move the majority of it to the SD card

Do you have a link that I can download directly from?

A Google search for [Waze android download] or similar will yield several results, I don't vouch for the validity of any of them though.

It should be 37.56MB, this version was published on July 7.
