REBOOTING (turning off and back on) seems to have FIXED the problem!!!!


Next time simply try a airplane on-off, to force a re-registration into the packet switch network and ensure there is a "3G", "E" or "o".


I had a '3G' connection showing on the top edge of the screen when the problem was occurring and I turned off my WiFi. When I turn on the WiFi, the bars replace the 3G. I didn't notice, while driving, but I suspect the 3G was on then.

EDIT: Just did a 'test drive' and voice messages are back to normal also.
(I kind of miss the 'sweet voice' of the substitute lady that was just telling me to turn right and left, but glad to have street names back. It is also interesting that there seems to be some 'default map' storage that let me drive around my home area without it getting me lost.)

I've always shut down by selecting the menu button "Switch Off". The last two times I used Waze, I used the verbal command "Switch Off". I've gotten the "Uh-Oh" message both times upon restart. Logs sent.

Shutting down waze not through the app itself but through the task manager (double-tapping the home button) - will result in an error message upon restarting it ("Uh-Oh"). We are aware of this bug and will fix it, but in the meantime, to avoid this annoying message, just close waze with the shut-down button.

You can just disable data connection, next to the disable 3g setting.


No, I can't. That disables "mobile data connection" over anything but wifi. I should have taken down the wifi-router for taking out wifi as well, but I neither bothered to go upstairs nor did I want to involve my housemates into Waze-debugging.

Just to clarify, I've always shut Waze down through the app itself, using the shut-down button. Never had an issue. Only when I used the 3-finger touch verbal shut-down through the app did I get the Uh-oh on the next restart.

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

Is there any reason they removed the voice type option and only kept the Full/Minimal option?

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.
