what do you mean by not named? it showed all the street names on the Top left but didn't announce the name. in 3.6 it did. this is trout road in 08012

Ah, here?

I would bet the problem is that Hidden Dr and Trout Rd have the same endpoints. This can cause problems with navigation.

I will leave it like this long enough for you to see it, but I'll fix it afterwards.

When you have a loop like that, where both ends connect to the same segment, navigation can become problematic. The solution is to introduce an "extra" node into Hidden Dr (or Trout Rd) so that no two segments have the same two endpoints.


it also didn't know exactly house was and 3.6 did

Whenever you install a new version, Waze downloads a new voice file for TTS. A while back, there was an issue that if you switched from Wifi to 3G/4G while this file was downloading, it would get corrupted. This is pretty easy to happen, because it would do this download the first time you ran Waze...often in your driveway or just outside your office, still on Wifi...then you drive away while the file is still downloading, and lose the Wifi connection, and now you have a corrupted file.

Try uninstalling Waze and then re-installing. That might take care of it.

Beware that you're going to have to redo all your settings when you reinstall.


already did that and same tts issues

I trust others to highlight the bugs with features. My main hope was that the routing in this version would be stable, without all this hovering, misidentifying the GPS location, routing on side roads, etc.

So far, so good!

Is it just me or is the issue with having (3+?) favorites on un-named streets back? Sorry in advance if I missed someone else mentioning it.

All I know is for one old favorite I had pinned to a main road, I tried to add it to a newly added unnamed parking lot segment. The favorite disappears upon app restart.

I am also parking in a different parking garage since my current one is under construction. Add favorite in new parking area, and gone upon app restart.

Even if I create the favorite and use it to navigate, next time I start the app there isn't even an entry in the history list to show I did anything.

And yes, I was the one who stumbled into this in the past. I guess I like having destinations on un-named roads :) Most are parking lot type if anyone thinks that matters.

I also wonder if the server's list of favorites (including the ones we have deleted) comes into play or if it is just isolated to the client (which means I probably have a bunch of duplicates from when I have tried to add these favorites!)

I noticed something strange on my drive from Knoxville to Nashville last night.

While navigating I noticed a road off to the side of my screen that was recently updated but it wasn't showing its new state on the map. So I did a refresh map of my area. What happened:
- Tiles along my route DISAPPEARED and were displayed blank.
- Tiles off to the side were still visible (not sure if they were updated or not)
- Zooming in and out kept a blank area along the route.
- Active navigation was terminated with no warning.
- Restarting navigation worked fine, but only had a purple line through the nothingness.
- Hazards, traffic, wazers, ads all appeared in the nothingness okay.
- I restarted the app and immediately upon app restart all the map tiles displayed in their updated state.

I was able to reproduce this later in my trip as well. 4 or 5 bars of 3G cell service each time. Day and night modes impacted as well.

So two issues?
1.) Tiles not displaying.
2.) Active navigation being terminated and/or not restarted

Or my phone is just possessed ;)

I just updated Waze on the iOS to the latest version and I'm experiencing these problems: (1) Facebook refuses to connect but Waze keeps on reconnecting anyway. I tried disconnecting from Facebook but I'm getting nagged by the dialog that Waze can't connect to Facebook. After a dozen attempts, I was able to disconnect it and the nagging stopped. (2) Waze keeps on refreshing the map every second displaying a set of street names one time and a different set the other time. Anyone else who's experiencing these bugs?
