A couple of issues:

1) I'm still waiting for a fix, or at least an acknowledgement, of the CloseIntent bug in 3.7.

2) I'm not sure if this has anything to do with 3.7, but I'm trying to get the voice prompts to include street names (as opposed to just "turn left"). The option is supposed to be there under "Sound", but it isn't - all it has is the volume level and the "use phone speaker" checkbox. I'm running Android 4.1 (IIRC) on a Galaxy S3, in Israel but using Waze in English. (I've tried switching the navigation guidance to Hebrew to see if that might help, but it consistently fails to download the new prompt file.) Is there something I can do to make this work, or is it a Waze problem?

I just checked, and the CloseIntent bug has *not* been fixed. :-(

Is this one in fact a bug, or did someone at Waze decide to take that feature out of the API?

My app screen (both the map and car) jumps around erratically when navigating and just displaying location on map. Did not happen a week ago. Did change battery though. Any thoughts on how to fix?

Is it just me, or does Waze crash every time it loses GPS location while at the bottom of a tunnel? Some areas like where I am, are surrounded by water, and the only way to get places is via bridge-tunnel.

Yes it is a big problem for me too. I have to restart Waze over 20+ times in a day. It happens on spouse's phone too. Waze 3.7.2.0 Android 4.1.2 on a Samsung S II.

This issue needs to be bumped. I've also sent in debug logs and an email to the support list.

This seems like a silly problem, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn off voice prompts. Whether I [de]select "Play sound to phone speaker" or turn "Prompts volume" all the way down, Pandora streaming via BT is repeatedly interrupted for the nav prompts I don't need to hear.

I'm 95% sure that, before 3.7, "Level of guidance" could be set off completely. Now I only see two options, "Directions only (with themes)" or "Including street names". I've gone through every single menu in the app, and can't find anything else that's close.

Am I going crazy, or was this changed on purpose?

cowwoc wrote:Hi,

I am running Android 4.3 under Google Nexus (Fresh install, a week old). When Waze is configured to output on the phone speaker there is a noticeable delay between:

"In 400 meters" and "turn left". By noticeable delay, I mean 2-3 seconds.

Can you reproduce this issue?

Thanks,
Gili

Hi,
I've seen this reported on centercode too. I've submitted it to bugs.waze.com under bug number 5151.

However, if I use a different App (e.g., Google Maps) and run Waze in the background, the Timeout will initiate properly after 1 minute.

Samsung Galaxy S3
Android 4.1.2

It is perfectly normal behavior for the screen to not timeout when Waze is on the foreground. Wouldn't want it any other way. It would be a PITA to have to touch the screen every 59 seconds while driving.

In Settings-> General there is the option "prevent Auto-Lock". When deactivated the display will switch off even when running waze. When activated the display is always on.

Mine is ticked on indeed.
