Two issues I've had:

Opening the bottom pane while a pop-up is open saying that the ETA has changed caused an app crash. I've not been able to reproduce.

There is a strange TTS glitch when the phrase "exit left" is used. It comes out garbled and sounds like "exi--a--lef". I've tried clearing the TTS cache and it hasn't worked.

Unable saving HOME and WORK addresses - with workaround

Postby ghrasko » Thu Jul 09, 2020 3:11 pm

PROBLEM:
Unable to modify and save HOME and WORK address. It let me defining/changing the addresses and said it had been saved. But it was not.

DISCOVERED CAUSE:
I am running Waze in Hungarian, where it uses the Hungarian name for HOME and WORK ("Otthon" and "Munka"). However, when saving, it did not translated back and thus had not recognized that these are the special HOME and WORK addresses. It save the items in the Favorite list and let the special HOME and WORK addresses undefined (or with the old value).

WORKAROUND:
Delete any old addresses saved as HOME or WORK (in your local language) possibly from the favorites, but from everywhere. Change application language to English. Define and save the HOME and WORK addresses as desired. Change back application language to your language.

Can't log in. Using new Galaxy s10 and it pulls up my account but is always stuck with the loading icon. Never actually connects. This is both through the phone number and via facebook. Sometimes there's a pop up saying error creating new user account. I've reinstalled the app, cleared cache, rebooted phone. No luck.

That is not a bug, that is how the app has always worked.

This issue came to my attention via two URs in my area. A user reported that when zoomed in on his current location Waze shows the town name correctly but when zooming out the name changes, and I was able to reproduce the problem myself. For example, I live in Coos Bay, OR and when zoomed in that is what is displayed, but when I zoom out to a certain point the city name changes to Portland which is over 200 miles away (and Portland disappears from its correct location on the map).

Is it really a bug? Is this just an Oregon issue? Can you reproduce it where you live? Any feedback/suggestions are appreciated.

Constantly loses GPS. It is solved by rebooting the phone. There are a lot of such feedbacks in Google, are you going to solve the problem?

This bug is known and will be fixed in the next release 4.65.x.x
