Been working pretty great for me. The only thing I'd really like to see is a setting to enable/disable the ios status bar in app. It would be nice to use it for extra screen space and less distraction. Tomtom has this feature and I couldn't imagine it would be very much difficulty to incorporate?

Tonight I upgraded my phone. Old = iPhone 4. New = iPhone 5

Prior to activating the new phone, I did backed up to both iCloud and to my laptop (via iTunes).

History came over fine. I'm impressed. I didn't expect that. Thanks.

When activating Waze for the first time on the new phone, it asked about favorites. I said yes. I'm not sure if the question was 'restore' or 'copy'. But what I have is an old set of favorites. They are from September or so.

Any suggestions as to how I can get the favorites in the old phone over to the new phone?

actually what the "Searching network.." indicates for?

is it just indicates no network connection between client and waze server?
if like that, but why i still able perform downloading (refresh my map area to download the new map tile) and uploading (send log to waze server) while showing "Searching network.." on client?

please advice..

thanks..

Shorthand for "Including street names"/"Directions only (with themes)"/"No guidance."

It says it on the screen.... One has street names, the others do not.


Sorry, I meant that I wish the voice type options that appear under general were more clear, not the Full/Minimal/None.

Is it just me or does it seem odd that there aren't the same settings for all the None/Minimal/Full Guidance options? I think that the voice type should be an independent option from the guidance options. Just my two cents...

It sounds to me as though the recordings are more phrases than words or phonemes. If that is true, there would be separate recordings for Minimal vs. Full.

Yes, minimal is all pre-recorded sound files, which is why the street names cannot be included.

Suggestion: hybrid option a la TomTom?
