iOS Version 3.1 Feedback Thread

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Thu Feb 09, 2012 7:05 pm

Post your feedback and comments here please.

What's New in Version 3.1
  • Hands free operation - Use voice commands to share road events or have Waze direct you to home or work. (Initially available for US & Canada only)
  • Share your location or destination via text or email, or update others on new ETA when running late. Your friends can click on the link in the message and launch Waze directly to that destination.
  • Navigation list is back! You'll find it in main menu while in navigation
  • Improved Bluetooth support
  • Lots of bug fixes and optimization

Essential for accurate voice recognition: ability to give commands over a bluetooth headset.

Bug: Even with voice commands turned OFF, the proximity sensor is still active and blanks the screen when your hand gets close.

Prefer Goodie Munching is still available. Why oh why!?

In the iOS last beta, it was reported that there is a discrepancy between the ETA shown onscreen and the ETA sent in email/text notifications. I have found that as you drive, this discrepancy gets worse and worse. Check out the two screenshots below showing this:

Reported as part of the beta too. This is the first try at ASR, so there are a whole bunch of gaps right now.

TheBuca wrote:... it'd be nice to take it a step further and pause between the slashes in the road name.

Known issue they say will be fixed, but it shouldn't require a client-side change. TTS info comes from the server.

TheBuca wrote:4) When using the speaking function, at what point is your position saved? When you first activate it by waving, when it recognizes your command, or when it actually sends the report?

Very good question. If it behaves like tapping on the report menu, it should tag it at the wave of the hand, or at least after processing the word "report." May need to test this out.

Yep. And it works finally, now too. :) In one of the betas it would reset the start point to your current location as soon as you selected a destination. It seems to work ok now.

When Waze comes to a situation where it gives TTS instructions which run right together due to length of announcement, speed and distance between turns, then Waze gets "confused" as to the state of playback and will keep the other app paused.

When "play to speaker" is selected, and this happens, Waze will output a short amount of TTS instruction over BT instead, because it's trying to do too many things too quickly. And from then on, it will not play any TTS to BT or over the speaker until you restart the app. I can repeat this any time.

I have submitted logs after this happens six times in the last two days.

I didn't experience a recalculation crash until this morning. But the circumstances were odd.

I decided to stop at a store before continuing to work. I let Waze recalculate several times as I went through the parking lot. The store was closed, so I continued back out of the parking lot. As I did, Waze would do the recalculate, then would put up a single route selection option, as if I had asked for alternate routes.

Problem was, there was no route information in the single box. I tapped on it. Waze thought for a moment and then came back with "Uh-oh! Unknown alternative 1."

It then presented me with a route to drive, and even the next turn was correct, but as I drove a bit, the TTS prompted me to make the next turn, which was still over 6 miles away. It then recalculated the route and repeated the "unknown alternate 1" routine 3 or 4 times until the app finally crashed. I submitted logs, which were, thankfully, running in debug mode.

EDIT: This was a fresh install of Waze (removed previous version) 3.1.
EDIT2: Of course I uploaded logs. :mrgreen:

That's a known limitation required by Apple. Waze has no way to change this.

For voice commands? Use the 3-finger tap.
