It would seem that the correct behavior should be to keep focus on the closest report and only switch as you pass that location (after a few seconds) so that the report can be cleared or thanked if necessary.

Yes. Known issue. Unknown if Waze wants to bother fixing it at this time.

Another issue I noticed on my drive last night.

When there are multiple reports in the same vicinity along a route, Waze only shows the pop-up for the one farthest from your current location. For example, there was a spot where there were two police report and a car on shoulder report within a mile. When I was a mile from the first report, I received the pop-up notification. As the second report came into range, the pop-up changed to that report (even though I had not passed the first report). So I was unable to mark the first report as "not there" since the hazard had been cleared. I saw this numerous times last night and each time I was only able to update the very last report in the string.

It would seem that the correct behavior should be to keep focus on the closest report and only switch as you pass that location (after a few seconds) so that the report can be cleared or thanked if necessary.

Upon entering navigate screen, I try searching for a destination by typing into the search field. After entering the location, I see that Waze is only searching for Contact List Results. Waze results, which is usually the default, isn't even available. Google, Bing, Foursquare, etc results are also not available - you could usually scroll through those options in the search mode, but with this issue the icons are not available at all. Only the contact list results icon is available. I then try going to categories mode, and the screen shows "no items". The usual options like gas stations, restaurants, places of interest, etc are all gone.


Hi all,

The issue recurred for me this morning and I was able to take some screenshots.

Here's the search screen with only Contact Results available. Notice that WiFi is connected (connected via a mobile WiFi stick).

Here's the Categories screen with "No items" displayed.

Here's the Menu screen showing that Reports are still available, and so I assume that network is also available. This may mean the issue is not with connectivity?

I also tried switching to my home WiFi once I got back and checking if I could do a search and if categories returned. This did not work and search/categories were still comprmised. I had to uninstall/reinstall the app again for the seach functionality and categories to be restored.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

This was posted before, but I would like to see this feature added also.

<Traffic bar that shows up after a destination is selected and the route calculated should be in the "your trip" screen also. It should update in real time and should have option to pop/slide up unobtrusively when new traffic conditions ahead are detected.>

This would be a great feature to have as other wazer's update the traffic/cops down the road could see the update in this bar without having to zoom out and look further down the road. Co-Pilot Live has this feature and its great and I would like to see a version of it in Waze.

Thanks again for a great app.

Pave Road inside iOS app does not seem to post data to Waze Map Editor. Also does not update my
"New Recorded Miles" in My Dashboard.

When I used the Pave function two days ago, it showed that it was paving in the app with the steam roller animation and showed it laying down the blue road. After recording a long stretch it showed the new blue road turned red. For a couple days, it shows the red (unnamed) road in the iPhone app but never shows up alongside "My Drives".

How is this suppose to work and did it use to work in older version?

I'm running Waze 3.6.0.0 on an iPhone 4S iOS 6.1

This makes Waze look like a very "unfinished" sat nav product compared to your competitors. I'm all for reducing map clutter, but there's lot of room to include useful labels such as junction numbers/names and the names of the roads they lead to, possibly the names of parallel routes and other large landmarks adjacent to the motorway such as parks. I learnt so much about the area surrounding my commute from glancing at the Waze map as I drove into work. This in turn encouraged me to add and label missing landmarks - now there is no incentive for me or other drivers to do this.

I agree that this is a pretty big problem. The map is really unnecessarily bare. Street names aren't so bad—we could stand to show a few more—but landmark names are almost never displayed. What's the point of putting landmarks on the map if we can't tell what they are?

Oddly, its only a problem on the 3D map. The 2D map has labels everywhere—maybe too many street labels, but it does very well with landmarks. The 3D map should be on the same level.

I don't remember seeing anything about the beta that was supposed to fix this, but let me know if I'm wrong.

Two issues I'm still seeing:

1) When Waze finds a better route or recalculates an ETA, the "new ETA" and "original ETA" values are reversed. The new ETA shows the original time, the original ETA now shows the new time.

2) When starting on a long route, the application will freeze momentarily on the window with the countdown clock on the 'Go' button. It will usually freeze with '6' showing on the button. If you just let it sit for a while, it will refresh the screen showing your position on route. But the waiting period can sometimes be quite long which makes it appear the application has frozen/crashed.

Thanks guys. I'll keep observing until the next time it happens again (I just reinstalled Waze a couple days ago and it's still fine). I'll try switching around my home WiFi and the mobile one too. Will try to take screenshots as well.

Will keep you posted.

What they said ^

Often in my driveway where the wifi is present but weak, Waze will try to search various sources, but because of the weak wifi, everything but my phone contacts will time out and Waze will show what it thinks is the closest match in your contacts.

Usually if I tap Bing or YP or Foursquare, Waze will try to force the Internet connection resulting in my phone dropping the wifi and using the cell network, but occasionally that doesn't work either and I have to turn my wifi off on my phone or drive the car out of range completely and then pull over and try again.

Same here. It seems to happen when Waze thinks it has service but doesn't at the beginning of the search, and gains it by the end—that is, when I start the search my phone still thinks it's in range of my home wifi even though it isn't, and by the time I went to switch providers from Contacts to another one it had jumped to LTE.
