Some more feedback now that I've had a chance to use it some.

1) the Audio is kinda quiet, even with volumes set to max
2) can you route the audio, and hopefully in the future, the mic through Bluetooth?
3) Gonna throw in speech recognition again, I really think some focus needs to go towards this.
4) phone gets really warm, uses Bart faster than my 3.1a charger can give, I've got a 4.2a charger in the mail now. But, if there's anything that can be done on this, it would be greatly appreciated, as right now, long road trips are out for waze.

other than that, great job guys!

Phone getting hot is OK... We are used to it by now... Playing any 'more serious' game gives the same effect.
For me the biggest flaw is that, while using Waze the battery drains more than it charges (L920 GDR2)...
today I started from 100% fresh off the charger - was driving and wazing (3g network) for about ~50mins, while constantly charging with Nokia cr-200 - at the end battery is drained down to 65%.... that means I couldn't even use it for 3 hours with this charger.



That's why I passed on the CR-200, I found in my research that it only charges at 1.6a iirc. I was losing charge well enough at 2.4a. I solved it by buying a 3.1a charger, ran any GPS including trapster without great loss to the battery, for the most part it held stable. Waze needs to make it suck less Batt, for their own sake as well. For extended data collection. We'll see if the 4.2a charge can provider enough juice, I don't see any other chargers offering more than that for the car, so that's the last solution I have. Again, I don't mind the heat, but the phone is more a safety device than a nav system, so if I have to choose between navigating a long trip, or keeping a full charge, full charge wins.

Can you add low volume to that?


I mean, driving my suburban which is a quiet vehicle, with volumenmaxed, could still barely hear it. :(

Am I reading this correctly or is this a typo "Windows Phone v3.7.6"?

I have looked, re-read and refreshed Windows Store and what I am seeing is my current version which is 3.7.4.5.

I am not sure if this has been posted/answered by anyone else, but does the WP8.1 version of Waze really not auto-rotating? I have tried reconfiguring its settings, but it does not seem to change the screen orientation to landscape.

I'm running Waze Release 3.7.4.5 on Nokia Lumia 929 (Icon) with Lumia Black update - running OS version 8.10.14157.200 (preview for Developers). I can see others and post/see my traffic reports without any issues. I'd complain about the absence of features when compared to other OS brands but know that'd be nothing more than spitting into the wind. Good luck!

Hi all.

I'm on Windows phone. Just bought a Lumia 640.

I know support on Windows is nil, but I have got it to work on all iterations even if though it is not as good as the Android version (understatement I know).

However, I cannot get past the EULA this time.
I have two check boxes that ask for my click.
I check them, but there is no place to continue? (one for updates and the other asking that I am over 13).
I cannot scroll down or move forward in any way.

Thoughts?

Seconded. The WP phone version is a poor relation to the iOS one which I've spent a lot of time using.

Firstly, I want to thank Waze for developing a Windows Phone 8 app!

I've got a few questions though: audio is not routed through the blutooth (that's okay, my car probably does not support this) but sound is very, very low (even though system volume is set to max). Also, I don't seem to get an audio alert for speed traps and red light camera's (only a pop-up)?

Am I the only one with very low audio? I read the whole thread and found nobody else complaining about this. I have a Lumia 625

Have Waze installed on a Lumia 1020 and noticed a bug with navigation prompts. I accidentally selected a Spanish language navigation voice, and since I don't speak Spanish I switched back to English. This worked, mostly, except there's a bug now. When the navigation alert is coming up for a turn half-a-mile to a mile off (when it is NOT alerting the specifics of the street name, etc), it says, "In half a mile, *something in Spanish*" (where *something in Spanish* is where it used to say, "keep left" or "make a left"). When approaching the actual street the behavior is as expected. ("In 500 feet, take a left onto Avondale Road." Or whatever.)

I have noticed that if I have Waze running *before* the Bluetooth pair occurs, the navigation is through the phone speaker. If I start Waze *after* the Bluetooth pair, it comes through the car's audio. HTH.
