I used the Waze Application last week for a 100km trip, and I am really proud of it. It worked well and the indications were right.

I would like to change the radar notification. Instead of listening to the worning voice, I would like an alarm. Could it be possible?

Regards,

Dalanz

@sketch, @driving79

Thanks for the help! I'll definitely use that as a work-around until a new version that hopefully has less problems with the UI is out.

Good grief, no. Can you please read before posting? There's a whole damn thread about this explaining the situation: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=56147


I'll point out that your admonishment comes off a bit on the rude side and despite your assumption I did take some time to read through the forums. Regardless, you should know that I am not going to suffer through reading every single post in this (currently) 17 page thread (or any other multi-page thread) on these forums to make sure someone else hasn't discussed my issue and my recommendation. This is a thread for providing feedback on the application and as a long time user of Waze I've had enough of the buggy UI on iOS so I provided exactly that.

If you truly are so passionate about making sure that people don't bring up issues that are discussed elsewhere you should probably lobby to have this information added to the FAQ.

Please restore the ability to properly quit the application. The current version of the iPhone app is simply too unreliable to not have a proper quit function.

The UI gets wedged into an inconsistent state where pop-ups that can't be dismissed obscure the screen, the background darkens and becomes impossible to scroll the map, access elements of the menu, etc. Since I can no longer quit the application that broken UI state is serialized when the application is put to sleep and there is no way to recover short of restarting my iPhone.

Just today, it got wedged with the connecting to network pop-up despite my phone having full network connectivity (email, web browsing, etc all working). Once again, the only way to regain control over the application was to reboot my phone.

Even if you address these UI problems with the upcoming update there is no way you can guarantee you haven't missed a corner case that will end up causing similar problems. Please add a way to completely exit the Waze application back in iOS.

Yes, it was rude. And I feel your question was arrogant, that your time is more valuable than other's time who had already answered the question clearly weeks ago, and who had repeatedly typed the same thing over and over again as each person asks it because they can't be bothered to read even the original post. You clearly hadn't bothered to read the forum announcements or sticky threads, which should be scanned first. The thread title clearly matches exactly what you are asking, and in fact, the answer to "why" is in the first post. No need to scan through 17 pages.

Maybe, but I would think that because iOS is in control here, that "Speaker" is equivalent to headphones. When you plug in headphones, the iOS interface changes to "headphones" instead of "iphone." iOS should be routing audio to the headphones from the speaker without telling Waze about it. Maybe Waze can still control this, but I was thinking perhaps not. We do know that there are separate volume settings for speaker vs. headphone, so once headphones are plugged in, make sure that you use the hardware volume buttons to adjust Waze's output volume when a sound is playing. (you can activate voice command mode and adjust the volume while it is waiting for a command, too.)

Why not simply add it to your favorites??


HUH??? the issue I had is the screen goes dark... was that not what we were talking about?

You quoted nothing in your post, therefore the assumption is that you are replying to the post directly previous to yours. It's very confusing if you don't quote.

Rarely. (Or if they do, they rarely post anything.)

I had this issue for a few days, then it started prompting again recently.

Every time I use LogMeIn from my iPhone, Waze loses all its search engines except address book until Waze updates or is reinstalled.

See the missing search engine thread stickied in the search forum. No permanent fix yet but Waze does need to collect info from us in order to fix the bug.
