Could that be you upgraded from a beta and the friend did a fresh install?

Nope, we're both using the Play store release.

I feel like a silly goose now even bringing this up, but I think I figured out the difference. I downloaded the UK voice prompts, he has the stock United States voices. I'm going to change back to US prompts today and see if it changes the candy sound.

This came up when I was snooping in the sounds directory on my phone and noticed the bonus.bin file was a different size on the UK and Hebrew directories versus the one in the US directory.

How strange!
I expect the voice to be different but the actual sounds...
Don't blame you at all for not spotting that one.

*facepalm*

It is indeed a different bonus sound with the UK voice data. I switched back to US, and the loud ding came back. I'm going to do some copy & pasting and see if I can get the ding with the pleasant UK voices. :geek:

Yes! All that you need to do is copy the "bonus.bin" from the US version of the sound files over to the UK directory. The sound files are at sdcard0 > waze > sounds > eng (for USA English) and eng_uk (for British English).

I got a new phone the other day and just re-did this now.
