My feedback on the last version is the following:
- Voice indication come too late when driving faster than 60km/h. Lower than 60km/h, they come at 800m for the first indication. Faster than 60km/h, they come at 20m at best. This is very dangerous.
- Waze keeps forgetting my work address.
- I cannot find the Voice Command menu and cannot active it.

Tricky stuff! In the US, one can expect high traffic volume at shopping malls from the early morning the day after the Thanksgiving Day Holiday (and, since 2013, perhaps, even on the evening of Thanksgiving Day).

I wonder if it will send traffic data properly if I put it in the background during drives where I have already reviewed the route before I leave the house...

Too many detours around non-existent traffic.

I recognize that this is not a feature of the client app, but of the routing server.

As a map editor, I am seeing a lot of "wrong driving direction" and "turn not allowed" reports from wazers reporting that waze wants them to avoid a left turn or a straight-across-the-intersection in favor of a right turn, extra distance, and a u-turn to get them back to where they would have been doing the sensible thing.

They are not seeing the long waits that would make sense of the extra time, distance, and stress of the extra maneuvers, and they assume that waze is just doing something wrong.

Really chews up battery over a 90-mile drive. Has this been true of all previous versions, also?

Really could use some "power save" options.

I don't need traffic updates quite so often when I am travelling rural roads. As I approach more heavily-travelled areas, I might need some traffic rerouting. (traffic info on rural roads is unreliable anyway, as 2 cars caught behind a farm tractor leave a 5mph slow traffic warning hanging on for quite some time after the tractor has left the road).

And sometimes I don't need very much from waze, but am just happy to contribute the speed and road-travelled data from my drive. That could be done in a way to consume less power.

Thanks!

iPhone 5S

It didn’t occur to me that it could be the newest release of Waze, but before I would get notifications both sound wise and the drop down of new SMS messages.

This no longer happens. I’m unsure if I flipped an option or it is the latest release. I have all my audio running through Bluetooth - and it always worked until now.

I have checked all my notifications in iOS and they’re all the same (on).

Anyone else?

Just noticed that with iOS 8.0 on a 5s that Waze isn't seeing cell data - can't "find the network". When I start out from home the phone still sees my WiFi and is able to calculate the route, but once I'm half a block away it seems clueless. Can't report events (searching for network - but obviously not very hard, since the top of the phone screen reports five bars of LTE). Can't search for new routes. Basically unusable.

I also run into the problem that the "prevent screen lock" doesn't.

So - what's up?

Delete and reinstall I have just done. It's made no difference. Background app refresh still isn't available.

Found the login again. It kept asking for a phone number.

I restarted the phone the other day so it is still definitely missing on my iphone 5 with ios8.

I only have a very small number of apps that I allow background refresh on. Waze is one and mynd is the other.
