With the latest tile updates through April 4, none of the Point Places I added in March are searchable in the app. Something isn't working as expected.

I have the English Samantha voice for navigation on but the Tom voice speaks to me also. For example, Samantha will say "In one mile" and Tom says "turn left". And they alternate back and fourth. I think its a glitch or something.

It usually means that some files for one of the voices isn't fully downloaded. The only way to fix this is to delete and reinstall the app. Then, make sure you're on wifi when you select the voice and let it sit for a bit to ensure all the files get downloaded.

I believe all the terminals are correctly in Waze. What you need to do is use the Waze search results and not Google. Search for the airport, don't tap an autofill result, and then use the Waze results section, not Google. I think you'll find much more useful information in there. There's also landmarks for each of the different lots, so you can enter that into a search as well to get directions to exactly which parking lot you need.

In the future, we will have even better ability to get the driver multiple destination points for a single location.

These have been out there for quite some time. No sign of action from Waze. We've made our requests known. It's up to them to decide if they want to spend time developing it. (That's what PRODUCT status means.)

If you have a cellular provider that does not support simultaneous voice and data, and if you deviate from the Waze route while on a call, Waze cannot contact the server to get new route information.

Hi! I'm not getting most alerts, not sure if it's something I'm doing wrong.
For example I do get a few spoken notifications, like accidents ahead or police controls, but never get a speed cam alert. I know these are supposed to be triggered only if I approach above the cam's speed, I tried that, nothing. I even tried on a know one to speed passing the camera (in the 2nd lane which I know the camera doesn't take!), nothing! all these appear in the map correctly.
Also, road closures should be announced? the other day I drove to a closure which resulted in losing an extra hour as all the traffic got diverted to a tiny street, the closure was on the map (checked once I run into it), again, no previous notification (no notification at all).
Using Iphone 5S, iOS 7.0.4
thanks!

Updated to 3.7.8 for iOS 7 on an iPhone 5 but calendar integration is missing. tried restarting iPhone and reinstalling Waze app. still no calendar integration option in advanced settings and no option under iOS calendar privacy settings.

The 'calendar events' option doesn't seem to exist in the Navigate menu for me.

It's damned hard to get Waze to recognize that I want to hit the (i) button, instead it thinks I'm trying to drive to that destination. Sometimes it's no problem at all, but more often than not, I'm spending more time trying to hit that button than making the updates to the map, so it will work better for everyone.


Not a fix, but a work around I have found. I'm usually looking up info in portrait mode, try turning the phone sideways to landscape mode. Seems to be easier to hit the info tag and get to the remove option.
