Not getting any Pop-up notifications

Postby karl_db » Tue Jan 22, 2013 4:20 pm

Hi, I joined Waze almost two weeks ago. I use it for every journey and contribute information relating to traffic on my routes. In the beginning, before I joined any Groups, I was getting pop-up notifications about issues with traffic, police etc. within a 5km radius. This was great for me.

However, last week I joined a variety of groups with hundreds of members I checked the box that says Allow Pop-up messages from ALL Groups that I am a member of. Since then, I have received absolutely no pop-up messages. I "unjoined" all of the groups for a day to see if this would make any difference and I still do not get any pop-up messages.

Please help. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank You in advance.

(Galaxy SII Gingerbread - Waze 3.5.3.0).

Known issue. Other threads about it already. Mostly discussed in the client feedback threads in the client forum.

Thanks Alan,

I was looking in the wrong place for the answer.

Maybe something you wrote is key... I also have popups for groups selected. Maybe there's something which is causing a conflict. I'm going to try turning off group popups and see if the regular ones come back...

Me too. I didn't know I had popups for groups selected until I read this thread and looked.

The group popup setting does appear to affect the popup when at a standstill. I turned the group setting off and received more popups when at a standstill this morning.

Very interesting. (I forgot to check this last night.)

When you say that you turned off the Group settings, do you mean that you UNjoined the groups of which you are a member or is there another way to turn of group settings please?

No, what I did was to go to Settings>Social Networks>Pop-up reports and select "None." However, I now think I may have been hallucinating the results because I'm not getting pop-ups consistently when I stop. I do have the event radius set to "On route only" and am generally driving with navigation on.
