Hi folks,

I've been having quite a few problems with the Waze app ever since I upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 6.

- Waze crashes almost every time I switch to a different app and then switch back to Waze.
- Waze crashes frequently when I double-tap my home button to access my music controls and then return to Waze.
- More and more frequently, my highlighted routes have been discontinuous; I can see the break in the highlighted route and it's all along the same road. I'll have to get a screenshot for you.
- When the route is discontinuous, Waze keeps trying to reroute me as though I've gone off the route. When it does this, it'll tell me to proceed to the highlighted route while I'm already driving along the highlighted route.
- When I'm one mile away from a turn/exit, the sound clip for the distance ("one mile") will not be played, and only the action will be played (e.g., "turn left" instead of "in one mile, turn left"). This has only been happening for one mile, and no other distances.

I'm really upset because Waze has always been an incredibly reliable app for me, up until I upgraded to iOS 6. Now I'm tempted to start learning how to use Apple Maps since Waze has become nearly unusable.

Since it worked fine in iOS5 and not iOS6 and hasn't been officially updated for iOS6, your statement doesn't make sense. It's not Waze's fault you upgraded to iOS6.

Last weekend while walking on a walkingtrail in the woods, I saw a car carefully manouevering its way back to the paved streets - backwards. A quick check showed that Apple-maps (and Apple-maps alone) suggested that the walkingtrail was a paved street.

I'm running waze on iPhone 4S ans IOS 6 without any problem.
If there are crashes it is possible that waze data are corrupted. Removing it completely then reinstalling it may solve the problem.

Translation/pronunciation Problem?

I have read the previous 11 pages, and am not sure which forum post to ask this question. Starting here, because I'm using the iPhone client. Where should I post to inquire out the translation/pronunciation error?

Audio Español (Diego)
Location: Northern California

Street names that are pronounced incorrectly

The format below is: What is on the waze screen for the street name - What Diego says (translated word) - What the English word is.

Dr - Doctor (Doctor) - Drive
SR - Señor (Mister) - State Route
N - Nueva (new) - North
S - Segundos (seconds) - South

Examples:
"Vista Dr." is pronounced "Vista Doctor"
"I-280 S" is pronounced "ee dos cientos ochenta segundos"

Would it be more appropriate for it to just pronounce the letter(s) instead? Diego uses the the letters for E(ast) and W(est).

Why would Doctor, Señor, Nueva, o Segundos ever be used in TTS anyway? Ok...maybe Doctor our Nueva might be used in a street name, but they wouldn't have to be abbreviated.

The N and S is the most ridiculous, being that North/Norte and South/Sur could be abbreviated the same way in either language.

"Dr." as written above should be "doctor." "Dr" should be "drive."

TTS abbreviations are language dependant. You can contact support to add or change how abbreviations are used in your country.
