waze app vs lang mismatch

Postby Xuefer » Mon Jul 21, 2014 9:24 am

i was using old waze and have Chinese (any lang other than the builtin english) lang downloaded automatically. when waze is upgraded it still using old lang file until i update the map data in waze setting

even so, some of the old lang strings remains there
for example, some string was translated to Chinese in old version of lang file, but is decided to be not translated in new lang file. i update the map (so does lang file), the english text is still in chinese translated state (while other translated string is updated)
this problem won't disappear until i remove the entire waze folder on sdcard (which lead to the problem i post in previous reply)

Traffic updates - too late ;-)

Postby softfoot1949 » Mon Sep 08, 2014 9:33 am

I have noticed that often when the device is showing a clear road ahead and I report slow traffic the app suddenly gets an update that shows heavy traffic for some distance ahead that has seems to have been reported by someone else.

It's almost as though it's failing to refresh the traffic info often enough :-(

Is there a setting that might improve this?? As it stands it's not very useful.

Great app otherwise.

TIA
Dave

Re: Find friends from contacts - failure

This is something I observed when I switched from 3.8.0 to 3.8.1.

In 3.8.0 when I go to the "find friends from contacts" menu, I have a full list of my contacts (~400 entries or so).

Now, with 3.8.1 the list contains only ~7 entries. At first glance these contacts are some entries in my SIM, BUT not all of them are there though. None of my original contacts are on the list now. This also means, that my already established friends' nicknames do not map to their names in my phonebook, and I lost contact photos. This does not fix itself after a few hours, that I've given to it to sync somewhere in the background whenever it wants to.

I don't even get that.
I'll manually search for a name that is in my contacts and it comes up blank.

It appears now that the only way to manually add a friend is from Facebook (I don't do Facebook), or apparently there is some way to add someone in your immediate area... as my wife was able to "friend" me and likewise I her... but I can't even search by a Wazer's username to send a friend request, and friends on the forum here do not appear in the mobile app.

For now, the add-friends function is 100% broken for those not on Facebook.

It is working for me properly, I can add contacts from my contacts list after verifying my phone number.
it seems to depend on the Android version, on my nexus tablet with 4.4.4 it works, on my HTC one m8 with 4.4.2 don't.. [FACE SCREAMING IN FEAR]

Share ride to message, doesn't allow me to add who to send it to on a HTC one M8. It won't leave the content field.

Nope. I have the bottom two options, but the first one - Navigation guidance - is not there.

I JUST installed Waze for the first time on this phone, so I definitely should have the latest version. Is there a manual update inside the app I have to do or something?

I want to use the Terry Crews voice, but I've tried multiple paths supplied online and none of them work. The only option I have under Settings > General is Language, but that's just language, not audio language.

Under Settings > Sound, I only have Prompts volume and Play sound to phone speaker..

Yours does not look like this?
