I wonder if there will be a proper WP 8.1 update soon...

Just to bring everybody up to date who wants to post answers in the future.
Issues we were already talking about some pages ago:
No landscape mode
No Facebook integration
No groups integration (replaced right now by football teams)
High Battery consumption
No possibility of gas price updating

Furthermore, I recommend to post feature suggestions in the UserVoice-Forum since the Waze staff is not really reading this forum.

I'm missing a feature that allow me to record incidents of any kind later on the map.


That issue has already been discussed here. As you can see the suggestion has been declined by the Waze staff to prevent people from spamming the map.

Greetings,
Vatbub


This is useful I didn't know of it's existence!

Just moved from iOS to Windows Phone. Feature I miss the most is the "share my drive" option where I can send a message with a link to my route and ETA.

Enlighten me please :). If there's a good alternative for waze on WP i'd be glad to give it a try.

^^
I do have a Nokia (Lumia 930) and I tried that app. It seems to lack a dynamic rerouting option that guides me around traffic jams as they happen, like waze does. Quite an essential feature for my 100km commute with a dozen alternatives for the main route.

I'm on v3.7.4.5 on Windows 8.1 (HTC8X) and I can get to the share option:
- Menu > Send > Share Drive
- Send by Message or Send by email

There is another related section:
- Menu > Send > Send a Location
The options here are
- My current location
- My Destination (this is what I have selected)
- My Saved Locations
- Recently Searched

Thanks, I completely overlooked that :shock:

I gave it a try. As far as I can see, only messages from friends cannot be opened. Messages from the waze team open just fine. Perhaps it has something to do with the waze for WP app lacking most of the friends-related functions.

Me too. It also crashes when I try to calculate a route right after starting the app. Just displaying my location works fine. When I try again after 20-30 kilometers of running with just my location displayed, I do get a route and navigation.

Waze is indirectly encouraging you to move on to Android or iOS :lol:

I just moved from iOS to WP a month ago :P . If I'm moving again, it's from waze to another navigation app. (Un)fortunately, there still is no decent (and free) competitor for the live (re)routing capabilities that waze has to offer.

Update; I noticed that the problem only seems to occur for my evening commute home. When I drive to work in the morning, the route calculates just fine. :roll:

Update 2 (Mar 23); uninstalled and re-installed the app. Calculating a new route now works just fine, but the app kills itself when I use the option for calculating alternative routes. :roll: ^2.

Update 3 (Mar 25); the original problem is back after only a few days. App kills itself every time I try to calculate a route.
