iPhone beta version 3.0.99.20 - Official feedback post

This happened on the beta. I did not uninstall 3.0 before installing 3.0.99.20, however. Is this a common/known issue?

I don't know whether 3.1 and the beta are identical, and this happened Saturday, so I'm posting it here.

On a trip to Baton Rouge, a few times along the way, parts of the route would disappear. When I reached these parts of the route, Waze recalculated and gave me a "Proceed to highlighted route" instruction.

My friend was running 3.0 alongside me. This did not happen on his client.

I see. I have play through speaker off. Does that now work reliably?

The best way to test this would be to cycle through each type of audio connection and each of those two settings, with Bluetooth handsfree on or off, and keep track of the results. I don't have Bluetooth audio (A2DP) capability, but I can do everything else.

Please, please, please, please, please make the pause an option.

It's nice for audiobooks and podcasts, yeah, but I never listen to those. When I'm listening to music and it pauses the song, I'm thrown off the rhythm entirely. It's pretty jarring.

As it stands now, I haven't tested it much, but this is how it seems to work:

Prefer Bluetooth on: Music fades out. Music pauses. Instruction plays through audio connection. Music resumes. Music fades in.

Prefer Bluetooth off: Music fades out but continues to play. Instruction plays over music through audio connection. Music fades in.

These scenarios assume that music is playing through a USB audio connection and that a Bluetooth handsfree device is connected.

Also, and this is the weird one: whether or not Prefer Bluetooth is enabled, if music is playing right when the app is launched, the music will fade out, pause for a couple seconds, then start and fade back in, as if a turn instruction were being given with Prefer Bluetooth on.

Alan, what were your settings? Were you listening through USB or through the headphone jack?

Perhaps I am wrong, but didn't Waze use to announce the address of your destination when you've arrived? "Arriving at 345 Main street" or something like that? Well, it doesn't now. I think it should announce the address number and street name, if it has one available either as the direct address search, or via the POI search results which almost always include an address.

As I recall, it does or did this intermittently, perhaps depending on how the destination was entered (search vs. history vs. favorites) -- I never paid enough attention to find out.

The left/right is a great idea. I support it fully and have wondered about this before.

I can also report that it appears to be fixed for road munching. I have though filed a separate report for it doing the same behavior on long standing roads. My guestimate is that it had to do with network switching between 3g and edge a couple times in a short distance.

Did you uninstall the Beta and then install 3.1 fresh? If so any cached maps were dumped and the maps we freshly downloading the tiles as you were navigating through that area for the 'first time'. I don't think that is a 3.1 issue but general issue with Waze not downloading all tiles consistently.
