I did the update on my 4s... My issues

1. Street names are not always spoken. Sometimes it just says in .5 milestone left or exit right and doesn't always say street names or exit numbers o major highways

2. When traffic or any event pops on screen, the news version has a big box on the left side with the info . Old version was centered and smaller .. Also text in new box is small and too hard to read...

I'm still waiting to hear on these issues... I uninstalled and reinstalled and its still sometimes just saying TURN RIGHT instead of TURN RIGHT ON XXX STREET.. it does says the street name when you get 500FT or .5 miles .. but not like it used to. it never said things like "in 1 mile turn left"

any ideas??

so after uninstalling and reinstalling the app, I still get only the in 2 miles turn left until I an very close to the turn where it will then say the street name. shouldn't it always say the street name? all other navigation apps do

As someone posted earlier, Waze has never announced the street name at the first announcement when it's that far away.

However, I do believe something has changed with the announcement. I noticed something odd about the first announcement at long distance, but can't put my finger on what's different.



I don't remember someone posting that. but yes it seems different

The first announcement of a turn, depending on speed, at the 1 mile mark, or .6 mile mark, has never said the street name. There are three announcements for a turn and the first one has never said the street name, unless it is under a 1/2 mile, in which case the first announcement is usually at 1/4 mile. Only the 2nd and 3rd (if there is time/distance for a third one)


just saw this

It used to say "prepare to..." ;)


I would rather it say the street name eery time it announces ... Maybe waze can add it in.. its nice to know what street or exit is next BEFORE you get close..

I get the first "prepare" usually at 800m, then worst case the instruction with street at 400, 200 and at the turn place, which in practice can even be 100m away.


Nope I am running a 4S

1st, the initial instruction has no street name because its the trigger point to fetch the tts file, so it's ready for the second instruction. It's a question of resource optimisation.

2nd if the second and later instructions are announced too late, I'd be curious why you'd think late and I think early. It could be a discussion for another thread. But with the 400, 200 and 0 probable announcements, I wonder why would the client be late. Maybe slow network downloading the tts street name? GPS error shouldn't be as its not a 3g or 3GS. Maybe just a road junction too late?


just used it on drive home. On some turns it didn't announce any street name but showed the name Top left. sometimes it didn't day the street name until .5 miles.

davipt wrote:.5 miles are 800m, that's how it's been working since at least 3.6. I think before there was an announcement at 1km and 500, but now it's 800, 400, 200. This is what in feet?


but what about it not even said like saying the street name at all? I think it should know the street name as it has it on screen so it should always announce
