I've just received on my client's inbox a message that a certain user on facebook is now connected to me. Unfortunately I have "only my friends" selected, not "visible to friends of my friends". That guy seems to be a friend of two of my friends though. So I shouldn't have become connected to him at all. I don't see him yet on my friends list on the client nor on the dashboard, but I think those are updated only once per day. PM me if you need more details. My facebook account is private (friends only), so I expected waze to behave similarly.

I disabled the sharing both on my iPhone and in Facebook. That eliminated all of my Waze posts appearing in my FB timeline.

I don't know that it should be necessary to tweak the settings in both places, but I did and it stopped the messages appearing in my timeline.

It's still there. Minimal allows you to select the various voices from the other settings menu. I think in General.

Yes, in Settings->General. Be aware that there are different voice options available when using Full guidance vs. minimal guidance. There are more voices available with minimal guidance.

ohiostmusicman wrote:Ah, ok I figured it all out.

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.

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

There are a number of threads on this topic. The results boil down to, "yes, it can be useful information, but it won't be accurate enough to rely upon."

We all realize the maps are also crowd-sourced, but that happens as a result of driving and editing. There is no way to capture the speed limit information as a result of driving. It will never be anywhere near as accurate as the maps.

Waze will misbehave if it is not closed via [Waze menu]->[Switch Off].

3.5 and 3.5.1 crash constantly at startup, I know this has been reported before, but I love waze and I need it. I submitted several reports.
Details :
iPhone 4S
6Go free
iOS 6 latest upgrade (did not work before the upgrade either)
Uninstall/reboot/reinstall won't fix it
Disabling/enabling Bluetooth/wifi, connecting to USB won't fix it
The app sometimes will start (once every 50 startups or so...)

I still do experience the startup crash, and it is 100% reproductible (iPhone 4S, not jailbroken, 6Go free, latest iOs, nothing fancy installed).
I feel abandoned as this bug is still ongoing since 2 weeks.

Do the waze developers consult this thread? If so, I have one question, as it seems that the bug is not happening on all iPhones : can you reproduce the problem in house, or are you looking for a phone on which the problem would be reproducible?

A message for the wazers who are still having the startup bug. I may have found a (tedious) way to solve it.

I own an iPhone 4S, latest iOS version, no jailbreak, and waze did not launch at all (and no crash logs were present after a sync with iTunes...)

So I began to suspect there might be an actual problem in my iPhone, and the steps below were enough the get waze back to working condition:
Here is what I did :
- Backup the iPhone (connect the iPhone to iTunes, right-click on the device, and make a backup). It is wise to sync the songs & apps before doing that.
- Total wipeout of the iPhone (inside iTunes, select "Restore"). This restores the device to factory settings, and erases all the memory (!)
- Restore the iPhone from the backup

This process takes about one hour (and there is a risk of losing data), but it did solve the problem and now waze runs fine !

Hoping this will help other wazers.
