I know a number of users, including myself, requested this as we listen to audiobooks while commuting.

This should be a setting... And permits all users to select their needs !

If I start a podcast player (beyondpod on a Samsung i9300 running jellybean) then start waze, on startup the podcast player stops completely and I have to pop out of waze to restart it.

This is a recent change, it worked before and didn't interrupt the podcast except when speaking.

I usually have voice muted anyway.

I think this is partly related to system resources. Beyondpod pauses ok for me, but if the phone is being sluggish it will quit totally.
Likewise, Waze can be put into the background ok most of the time, but if I then run music and send sms, it will quit totally.

I am using Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 with Android version 4.1.2. My phone is connected to the car stereo via bluetooth for music listening.

Whenever I start Waze to navigate anywhere, the voice navigation (or any sound from Waze) will interrupt my music app.

Music playing -> Music paused -> Waze voice navigation provide instructions -> Music resumed

Waze used to allow the music to continue playing in the background while it provides the voice navigation. In case you are wondering, the "Route sound to speaker" option is already off.


Any idea how to resolve this? Thanks in advanced.

On a similar subject, when travelling on unnamed roads, Waze uses the NEXT NAMED segment for it's turn instruction.
This is fine in the city for ignoring short, transitional segments. In rural areas though, the next named segment might be several kilometers away.

Perhaps the algorithm should only do this when there is just one transitional segment, or alternatively instruct 'turn ... TOWARDS ...' instead of 'turn ... ON TO ...'. In English, this would make more sense.
In general, Waze is looking really good now.

Can't see how to delete a recent destination from the list in this version?
Used to be: show list - touch on the right - more - trash can. No trash can any more!

Really like the tilted report bubbles. Could you do the same with the traffic speed bubbles? It's hard to see which side the jam is.

On the HTC DNA, when navigating, the speedometer and 'center on me' buttons are covered by the settings and report issue buttons on the bottom of the screen.

Alan, the app offers the possibility to close for a couple of days. It should do just that, close for a couple of days. Many people do not find the way to the editor.

LG Richard.

I hope they keep their focus on more important things for a while, like the routing and the infrastructure stability. New moods can wait :lol:
