Sketch, is it essentially canceling your stop?

Right.

dgood23 wrote:I use the "Add a Stop" functionality regularly and since the 3.7.7 update it's been totally broken for me (iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.4). I'll navigate to 'Work' and then navigate again to my son's school so I can drop him off and it shows the stop as being 150 feet away (it's over 2 miles away) and doesn't adjust the route to work at all even though there's a perfectly reasonable route that goes right by the school. And even when it chooses that route, it doesn't actually guide me to the stop, just the original destination. I used this quite often before the update and it worked great.

Another example, I was on my way home from work using Waze's guidance and tried to add a stop (while stopped at a really long red light). It accepted the stop and presented the route dialog which I accepted and then it gave no further guidance at all -- not even a highlighted route on the map.

I wouldn't call it "totally broken"—but it is broken in a lot of ways, many of which I've detailed in this thread. Specifically, in this post: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 40#p639284

There's a fourth way I missed in that thread which turns the entire route pink, but I can't remember how to reproduce it.

As far as I know, you can only name a favorite when you add it. You would need to search again under Navigate and re-add the destination as a favorite with the new name.

To skip a step, you can go to the favorite, view it on the map, and add a new favorite in the same location.

Yes. Waze is well aware of that particular problem. They are also aware of a lot of other problems. Some problems take longer to fix than others.

When using the suggested 'Are you on your way Home' navigation, the client will get the addresses for Home or Work mixed up. Although it will navigate me to my 'Home' location from work, once I arrive home the app will say arriving at work and announce my work address. .

Just experienced this error this morning for the first time. Waze navigated accurately to Work, but announced "Now arriving at Work, (Home address)". I started navigating using the "Are you on your way to Work" suggestion when starting the app.

This happens to me all the time.

It's not that it gets any addresses "mixed up", it just repeats your previous destination address. It only happens for me when autonavigating to home (not sure if it does it for work, but definitely for home). The TTS says "Arriving at [the address of my previous destination]", and the nav bar will have the address of the previous destination in it too.

Here's an example. My house is not on Maple St, nor is it in New Orleans. My previous destination, however, was.

This has been the case for some time. I'm not sure if it has been acknowledged, but I think I've reported it before.

I've had the same problem. So far it only happened to me during the previous version in this beta testing cycle, so I figured it was related to the beta. Glad/not glad to hear it's affecting everybody.

Puerto Rico is part of the US. Hence the question.

Waze does not learn routes, it learns destinations. The language used in the app has been complained about many times.

Waze will (almost) never route you through a parking lot when there are viable street alternatives, even if the parking lot would be much faster. There is nothing to be done to fix it. Waze should update its ETA once you are in the parking lot - assuming the parking lot is mapped. If the parking lot is not mapped, you can learn to how to edit the maps and add the parking lot yourself, or you can request an editor to add the parking lot in the ulock/update request forum for your country.

Also note that the tiles have not been updated for a while, 16-Feb for the US, 17-Feb for the rest of the world.
