That's the Waze blackhole.
Everything that goes wrong ends up there.

When adding a stop, the route goes to the stop. Then after that back to the point where I'm now and then continues to the final destination.

I almost never get the fastest route btw, when having a stop.
Also when I'm leaving the freeway an exit too early it (heading for my final destination) it lest me go back to the freeway the leave at the correct exit.
Example:

I took the exit right after 'A'.
Then I got that route.

Hi when I ride on my bike I used to launch waze then turn off my phone and put it in my jacket pocket. It worked very well and I got the audio messages. The main advantage was to have the screen turned off and save battery life. Since a recent time, if I do this, waze just turn off.

Is there a way to keep Waze running when the phone screen is turned off ?

Thanks!

I now quite often have the problem that map tiles are not loading fast enough. This sometimes leaves me with only the purple navigation line on screen which is not very useful.

At the same time it seems that there are now two different versions of map tiles: zoomed in and zoomed out? sometimes one of them is loaded and the other not, which results in the app switching between "no map" and "map" when my Auto-Zoom is changing...

Maybe it would make sense to preload all the maptiles along a route when starting the journey? Or compress the data to make the transfer quicker?

Assuming that map tiles are getting refreshed on a more frequent basis now, they probably need to be downloaded to the phone more frequently as well... So this problem might occur even more in the future...

in my case correct version 3.6.0.0 is in Help/About menu.
installation went just fine. settings preserved.

Yesterday I received the popup "Waze has found a better" route SEVERAL times with no ETA change and no change to the next direction.
Time saved was "blank".
Eventually I got a message to exit the highway and re-enter - but still with no time saved - no change in ETA to home.

not sure if it is somehow related to this: http://status.waze.com/intl-server-issues-with-eta

I've agreed to update prices, the dialog with four N/A's popped up. I've closed it, opened the "right button menu - GS prices - select GS - update" and suddenly two of the prices were visible. I've immediately sent logs both times, unfortunately not noticed that debug mode was off (because of the release version).

Here are screenshots from yesterday: (I assume 12829594 is myself - the client infrastructure seems to be running into similar problems like the editor does? :o)

this was reported several times for beta versions but was not fixed prior official release.

Unmute and under Sound > Level Of Guidance > select None. This way you won't hear instruction but you'll hear road alerts.

Hi Perlin, that is working well for me too, but few comments.
1. for those without TTS - Sound > Level Of Guidance settings are little misleading. options are On/Off (for me as non-native speaker it was not clear what is that for at all). Maybe better for understanding would be "Audible (Route) Instructions" instead of "Level of Guidenance"
2. If I set level of guidance "off", it will remove "General > Navigation guidance" settings - where you may select language (all alerts are still in language which was set before). But if you update to new version it will not automatically ask if I'd like to download language audio files (so alerts are in English. need to add that the quality of English nuance is poor with volume too low).

and another point, there was no thanks in popup for construction on road:
