"Play sound to phone speaker" gets overridden when you receive a bluetooth call. Please fix.

I love the new planned drives feature, but about half the time when I try to change the day from the default, it never finishes loading.

Here is ugly one. Previous planned drives are shown in history. If you try to repeat that drive you get Uh-oh!. Why? Because they are all 6099.8 miles away. :shock:

Found a 100% reproducible bug. If user starts Waze without GPS (not enabled in time, or just user is in garage where is no GPS presented) and wants to see different route possibilities to his destination on a map view it will show "Trans Sahara Highway"... This is not what I expect in EU :lol:

How to reproduce:
1. Disable GPS.
2. Start Waze. Your last known location will be used (what is in most cases correct).
3. Click on drive somewhere.
4. Click on Routes button to see alternatives.
5. Change from the list view to the map view.
6. Enjoy "N1 - Trans Sahara Highway".
P.S. Clicking over the all alternatives will not give you correct map view.

I also found a potential Privacy issue. Wazer icons on live map were shown with a delay before, now it looks more precisely as real time tracking. Following screenshots made at the same time.

1. Drive was shared.
2. I open a Live map.
3. As soon shared drive on my Phone is updated I click F5 in browser. This is a difference what I can see:
1. Shared drive: [ img ]
2. Live Map: [ img ]

As could be seen Live Map shows more updated position, even if window was renewed at the same time as icon moved on my phone. I know that there is no name and royalty status provided on a Live Map, but it is very easy to track people based on a different moods they used, especially if it is special moods like Trex, or Robot, or in a areas where less Wazers driving.

I used this bug before as Shared drive link was broken within the driving to keep tracking of my friend, but it was pretty inaccurate with a delay around 5-10 Minutes. Now it is pretty precise and could be used for a tracking purpose as soon as you at least know wazers mood and time of driving.

There is a sound bug with a Galaxy S5 mini (Android 5.01). Loud settings could not be adjusted if Waze is running. Loud buttons just did not react at all. Only possible solution is to background or exist waze, adjust loud to needed level and come back to navigation.

Update: Seems doe not exist on v4.2 after clean reinstall.

Hi All,
is there is a way to make Waze works in background??? It is always crashed, I'm so tiered from it. Even in a few km as here, or immediately as following:
1. Start waze
2. Navigate to somewhere.
3. On count down window lock you screen.
4. Waze will not start routing you, but crash instead.

Hi All,
I found more issues!
Since I used hint from here to hide photo drop-down, sometimes I can see following issues on normal:

And Landscape mode:

It looks as doubled windows.

Also when it works, it does not really helps in landscape mode if instructions are shown (but it is better than was before):

Hi All,
My girlfriend want to pick me up and she has shared her drive with me.
1. Direct after clicking on icon I can see following window with information that she has shared her drive with me, everything looks fine:

But if I click on the map, than bottom half of it was black and I can move map around, come back to previous window works fine:

I did exit Waze and start it again. After clicking on badge with a shared drive and then on the map - upper part of it was grey and again I can move map, but half of the screen is grey.

I would like to report it because it's happens since v 4.0 version, but was really sometimes. Here I hint this bug twice in a row.

2. If driving was shared at the same time on a different windows there is a time inconsistency in case of delays:


3. Since she was near to me, icon was slitted to 2 :shock:

And you can see different time on each of them:

Sorry, did not saved second screenshot with a second icon, but it was reporting 10 minutes delay

Hi,

I have noticed that in the new version, you cannot scroll down on the menu for the planned drives when in landscape mode and therefore you cannot tab on the "plan Drive" button.
Anyone else that has noticed the same problem? Or it is just my devic?
My device is Samsung S5 (4G+), sw lvl 5.0.2
