i came from an android phone and I cannot believe the drastic loss in functionality and integration in using Waze on a W8.1 phone. The recalculating screen that always pops up, the battery drain, the fact that it tries to take the voice navigation duties from Here drive and then cannot remember where you wanted to go...these all make the app useless. Why bother creating an app if it is going to give users a bad experience?

That is the same stock reply they have been giving since Google bought them. They refuse to update the app yet they leave it available and advertise it on their website. Either update it or remove it. It's really that simple.

Please update the app on windows phone. It's annoying to see how well it works on Android and iOS. The current version really sucks.

Hi,

with my WP, I still get the voice prompts but without street names.

go into Menu
then Settings
All
Sound

and select right Navigation guidance (without street names).

when done, go to
Menu
Settings
All
General
Navigation Guidance

and select the one you want.
Everyone cannot be loaded (I tried with Romania for exemple and I couldn't get it, I had the issue you described).
today i am using "English (UK) - Carole" and this is fine to me. I won't change it anymore until it works fine.

I've re-installed the latest app and have also shut off Blue Tooth as some suggested but that does not fix the issue.

Also, when launching Waze I am constantly getting in red letters at the top of the screen a notification that Waze is downloading voice prompts however, it always fails....


As Waze was purchased by Google, the provider of voice prompts has changed. The Android and iphone versions were updated accordingly, but as the WP version is no longer maintained, obviously there was never an update for downloading the new voice prompts. Thus, unless Google reconsiders its decision to discontinue WP support, there will probably never be any voice prompts for the WP version. I sure hope that Google reconsiders, as I got both a WP and an Android phone (and prefer WP), but I won't hold my breath.
