The problem is, that when I did get back on the route, it had lost the ability to tell me when I was going to reach my destination.

If you don't get an ETA in the lower black box, waze/your phone has no data connection.
If you are positive that data connection was available, close and restart waze the next time.
No ETA means no data is available...

Hi.

I'm new to Waze, and am getting acquainted with the Windows version's several deficiencies: lack of voice command, inability to report gas prices, high power consumption, etc. (I also gave the manual parking pin a try, but couldn't get that to work either.)

That being the case, I'm looking forward to when there will be a new release of the Windows Phone software. Can we be notified of that when it occurs? Or can we have a place to look for an announcement?

Thanks,
OPElly

(pressing "Back" button to shut down and then cancelling shut down will get rid of the spinner)

thanks!


I have the same problem on a Lumia 521.

Here's a bug I couldn't reproduce if I tried. :-)

When approaching my destination, I take a route that deviates from the Waze directions. I exit the freeway one exit sooner, and take a side street to the one my destination is on. It's a couple of blocks different, but more direct. Waze recalculates the route as I do so.

This morning, the recalculated directions instructed me to drive past my destination (which is on the corner of an intersection), continue a block beyond, then make three right turns to circle the block until I arrived again at the intersection--though on the adjoining street rather than the actual address.

I can tell Waze hasn't lost the GPS signal, since it shows the location of my car.

Cheers,
OPElly

When using Waze with music at the same time (Nokia Mix Radio), the voice turn-by-turn prompts play on top of/mixed in with the music. Contrast this to the Nokia Here Maps, which mutes the music while prompting. I prefer the latter, as it is much easier to hear the navigation prompts, or at least if it could turn down the music volume to ensure that the navigation prompts are easy to hear.

Its sad to know. Due to some egocentric on certain OS, they would stop the development. First when I know waze, its like "Wow! Its a whole lot better. Finally I can replace my gmaps". Right now, I'm thinking "Geez, fortunately I haven't uninstall gmaps".
I have done some in waze (by driving, provides hazard, traffic issue, and many else. Including map editing), And I think I stand by with all WP Waze users. We need constant support.

If you decided to help, please update the apps constantly as in the android versions and iOS versions. If not, please withdraw the apps from the market and announce it that Waze is a no go for WP. Its a lot better that way.

We might in the end see Waze+ or any other mutation on the market. Hahaha.

Hi Everyone :)

moving from a android phone to a brand new Lumia, I'm very disappointed to discover the Waze v. 3.7.4.5 for France :
- no landscape mode
- no facebook connection
- graphics compare to the android version seems very aged

So I hope the developement of this great app on WP is not dead 'cause I still want to use it - so far 20K kms make with the Waze help.

Dies the WP version lack voice recog for reporting? I can't find any settings for it. I guess I find that odd, because that's singularily the biggest importance to me on this app. It strikes me as an odd feature to lack, considering how well tell-me is integrated into other, less important and lesser apps. I figured voice recog would be a given. :/

is there a timeline for when this feature will be added?


not trying to whine, just expressing concern for a feature. Again thanks! :)


The instructions say to go to voice commands, but this does not show up on the settings list as it does in the instructions
