I have updated a few of my previous posts with video captures of the bugs.

BUG: street names rendered upside down when traveling north (sometimes)

When I came to a stop at an intersection when traveling north, I noticed Waze was rendering street names upside down. This appeared to be only if Waze was in center/follow mode because when I tapped the "North" button, the names flipped right-side up. After tapping the center/follow button, the names reverted again.

IHere is a video clip where you can see this..

Just like the other video where the street names are flipped, but this video shows it flipping back and forth while driving. Additionally, even the vertical street names flip. It must have something to do with compass bearing because this only appears to happen while driving near north. It might also happen while driving near south, but I have yet to verify:

Flipping happens while moving video

BUG: Using option "Display top bar on tap" hides Update Details address number entry.

Situation: Turn on Map option "Display top bar on tap"
Actions: Drive to an address location. Tap the screen to bring up the controls. Tap the Update Map pencil icon. Tap the Update Details button.
Result: You cannot enter the address numbers because the "top bar" is overlaying the address number entry bar.

You can see this behavior in this video. (Sorry that it's a little long. I didn't want to spend a long time editing it down.)

Another BUG revealed in the video is that the map does not reappear until I tap the center/follow button.

BUG: Zoom level doesn't revert after tapping on a fellow wazer.

Situation: 2D mode, zoomed in so I can clearly see all side streets. Wazer appears at an edge of the screen.
Action: I tap on the Wazer.
What happens: the screen zooms out to show the other Wazer's location and put the pop-up box on the screen.
Action: I tap the close button
What happens: the screen goes back to my location, but doesn't return to the zoom level I had previously set.

Here is a video of this happening.

Not a bug, per se, but I am registering my dislike of the new method of scrolling the map while driving. The new visual, both in 2D and 3D view in map center mode, has the map stay perfectly still while the car icon moves along the road for a short distance, then the map scrolls, moving the car backward (backward relative to the physical device, but it stays in the right place relative to the map). This repeats over and over again. I saw nothing wrong with the consistent way the scrolling worked before. This is a step backward, IMO.

Here is a video clip of this action.

I DO like the new verbal prompting for "and then..." when two turns are coming up relatively close to each other.

However! :), I feel it is too sensitive. Today, I was traveling along a residential road around 25MPH and had two turns come up. I was notified with the "and then" prompt, but there was about 15 seconds of residential driving between the turns. This is way to far in advance, especially because it then prompts again. I received 4 notifications for the 2nd turn. At 45MPH+ and freeways speeds, this makes sense because the timing is so fast, but at residential speeds, this is unnecessary. I feel the "and then" prompt should be based more on time, not distance. If the next turn should come up in 5 seconds or less, for example.

Every time any Waze sound would play, the music volume would still dip, the car stereo would go silent, and both the music and the Waze sound would play over the phone's speaker. Obviously this isn't the idea behind it.


Using the 2.1 release, this option also causes Waze to ignore the mute switch on an iPhone 3G. Earlier versions already had bugs in this regard as well (road goodies in particular).

2.1 for the iPhone is in the app store now and on my iPod. I also think the popup is our "pause" button, but it is kind of a moot point now. Waze on.

BUG: When the final turn to a destination is a parking lot road, and the road you are on changes names at a straight intersection, the name of the first road stays on the display until the final turn, which is not the correct road name.

Situation: This location and intersection is where SW 175th Ave ends at SW Scholls Ferry Rd and SW Roy Rogers Rd takes over heading south. So, going from 175th to Roy Rogers does not require any kind of turn.

Using routing coming from the north, let's say from the northern highlighted segment to the southern on in this permalink, as soon as the turn is made onto SW 175th, Waze says my next turn is a left turn at the destination. The display on the phone shows SW 175th all the way to the final turn, even though the road I am on well before the final turn is Roy Rogers.

Why this happens: Two reasons: 1) Roy Rogers is a non-turn from 175th Ave, and 2) the parking lot road I was routing to is unnamed.

FIX: Ask the question you really mean to ask: "Are you stuck in traffic?" or "Are you in heavy traffic?" or "Is traffic slow or stopped?".

I think this is intentional and actually works in it's current form. I think this is a fix to the oft spoke about drive thru or long stop light scenario where you are held up for awhile and the client automatically said there was traffic. This way if your in traffic you can say so and have it reported accordingly, if not everyone else does not get a false traffic report.

So if you ask me it just needs a clarification from the Waze staff.

BUG: Waze verbal instructions are "held" until after a phone call completes.

What happened: I was running Waze while driving and received a phone call, which I answered using my BT headset. During the call, Waze is, of course, put into the background but continues to run. During the call, I went through three turns for which Waze would have prompted me verbally, however, no verbal prompts came through the speaker, nor the BT headset. When the call was completed and I hung up, I then heard the three turn instructions in rapid succession.

Reproducability: Unsure. This has only happened one time.
