Is this ever going to be fixed? Really off-putting, not just to me but other Wazers too.

That should only happen if you delete the previous version first. I've never seen this happen. And unless people just don't say anything, I don't think this is a widespread issue.

Mine always reverts back to mph. I've reported it before. Still not fixed.


How close are you to the US border? I wonder if Waze thinks you're in the U.S. because the Waze borders aren't very precise.

They probably couldn't find anyone to translate from Spanish to Netherlese.

Ok, now try to crack a joke on the Finnish.

If you set TTS to "minimal", you'll get that voice, without the street names.

You can turn off the proximity sensor in the voice recognition options.

Split this post if this is not the right place for it.

Feature Request: Simple speed limit indicator. Is always useful if not annoying and here is my suggestion.

If (waze know current road speed limit) and if (current speed is above current road speed limit) then (change the velocimeter image to one with the proibit sign or something like that).

Reverse this if speed is below or if enter a road of unknown speed limit.


The problem is that there's no reliable way to gather this data without Waze going from a free app to a very expensive app.

It could be crowdsourced like a lot of the other data we currently have, but the data would have to be 100% complete before it would be reliable...that would never happen.

I had a GPS app on an old Window Phone several years back with a speed limit and overspeed alert feature. However, it seemed to guess the speed limit based on the road type. The problem was that is that it was rarely right. It often thought the speed limit was 45 when it was actually 30. Any interstate highway was set at 70, even through cities where the speed limit dropped as low as 50.

Love Waze and use it daily:
iPhone 5, iOS 6.0
Waze 3.5.1

The pop-ups for alerts are too big. They cover the map. If I can't see the map then the text in the pop-up is of virtually no use.

SUGGEST: reduce the amount of information and make the pop-ups much, much smaller. Allow user to tap the smaller pop-up to enlarge and see more information if/as needed.

Thanks.

EDIT my phone is always in portrait orientation and must be so to fit in cradle.

Notifications too far in advance

Postby jkuruppu » Tue Dec 11, 2012 4:19 pm

i'm not sure if it was an upgrade with 3.5.1 specifically, or before that, but in the last month or two i notice that the warnings of upcoming accidents, police, speed traps, etc are way too far away - they seem to be triggering at about 1200 feet, and then a large part of the map showing where i want to go NOW is obscured by the bubble about the incident. was this purposeful? it makes it hard to correct the notification or say "Thanks", since i need to see where i'm going to turn off.

Runs finally fine on 3GS and 5, except for the resize of the logo (ugly) at startup on iPhone 5
