It would be nice to have two volume controls, one for device volume and another one for the voices volume, as the iOS versions has.

Every time I stop, instead of the usual warnings and notices popups, the focus moves slightly away of where Im located, and the icon to get focus on my car appears.
When I begin to move again, the map stay in the place it was, instead of focus on my car again as before. I have to click on the icon to make the map follow me again, but everytime I stop It does the same again.

So it makes the navigator almost useles in town...

Im using android 2.3.4 on a LG Optimus 2x (p990).

This relates to TTS, but here's the full story.

3.5 version was updated through Play store, no problems. Navigated to work fine this morning.
I saw the Waze Google+ posting on "Robin" and decided to install it to play around later. Selected Waze integration while briefly looking at it at work, and shut it down.

Later when starting Waze to verify a menu option for someone. Waze just would not start, as it could not connect. I was connected on Wi-Fi at the time, so thought it was a network issue. Switched Wi-Fi off & tried 3G. Still the same - Waze could not connect to the network. A colleague verified that he connected fine, so I cleared Wazes data from Apps settings.
Voila, that worked ! Looks like Robin broke my Waze, but I'll figure that out later..

When I drove back home, I obviously had to set ASR back on as all my setting was toast. Restarted and set course home, and then Serena said in her finest English voice "Lets get streeteted".
I thought I heard wrong, but looked at the TTS files when I got back. The TTS in both files that says 'started' are pronounced as 'streeteted'.

It looks like 'St' is now overcompensated for after being pronounced as Saint all over. It's probably a good thing that Serena did not tel me to get "Saint-eted". That would have ended my editing career.

Here's the links to both files on my dropbox public folder as I cannot upload .tts to the forum :
Let's get streeteted.
Let's get streeteted. Drive Safely.

We should really get TTS sorted if there is no form of whitespace between word abbreviations. 'N1' is not 'North One'. Fine if it was 'N 1' is, but parsing text can seriously be improved.
Better get streeteted on fixing this asap.

Waze will not reconnect without restart when losing 3G for a longer time.

Logs sent just now

The only way to do this is to simulate my position with fakegps


Solution:
move waze to internal memory.
I have noticed that if waze is on the SD I can't update gas prices (GPS error), if is in the internal memory it works...

Don't know if this is actual client software based, but today I got a couple of popups indicating that waze had found a better route, however neither the route nor my ETA changed.

When starting in navigation, I get sometime a french "Allons-y, c'est parti", sometimes an get a "Let's go", and sometimes I get a partial french text like if the TTS "c'est parti" overlaps the TTS "Allons-y".

Most of the time, firts TTS "Allons-y" is truncated at it's start and we can heard something like "lons-y".

this keeps slipping my mind.

A U-turn = "turn right, and then turn right". i always need to double check to make sure that it is a U-turn, and not a "turn right into a lane, and turn right on the next right turn".

A) After successfully updating fuel prices make windows with prices automatically close, otherwise I have to press back or try to press that small "X" on top.

B) When receiving fixed radar message, I can press only "Not there" button, which is very big. Make there button "OK" and only then "not there". Small "x" is too small and again.

C) When receiving any other message "not there" button is first, which makes many people press it first. Change it with "thank you" button.
