I can also confirm that the USA TTS is not working on its default setting "Samantha" since the upgrade to 3.8.0

Also noticed that the map directs are very strange. I use Waze every day commuting to and from work. Now the directions home are telling me to get off the highway and take side streets when there is no traffic.

Also telling me to go into a parking lot then turn around and get back on the street again. Very strange and so far very unreliable. It was working fine until the upgrade.

I also tried it on my wife's Iphone 5 too and the same issue persists. I think there needs to be another update to fix these issues.

It seems like the "Friend pick-up" (wiki link) feature is gone in this version.

Is that because it is now replaced with how people can send locations to other friends inside the App ?

The thing is usually when I pick-up a friend it's because they don't have a car or driver's license, so they also often have no use for a GPS app, even if it's cool and free.

That feature was very useful for those who didn't have Waze because they could share their location with you by clicking a link in the SMS you sent them.
It sounds more simple to me than now having to explain to them which App to download, then where to click in the app to send you their location etc...

I hope it will be back, its was one of the main "cool features" I was usually telling friends about when I was recommending the app to them.


P.S. - Before anyone jumps on me with URLs and thunder & lightning. I did try to search the forums a bit on this pick-up topic, but if it was ever discussed anywhere before the update I did not find it so forgive me for bringing it up here now.

I'm also having this issue. When receiving the "Update Your Wazer" (which I used to have a specific Wazer I used) and clicking on "Continue", nothing happens. It just sits there. Dropping out of the app and going back in just gets you back to the "Update Your Wazer" popup.

Same here. I uninstalled & reinstalled, and I'm still stuck on "Update your Wazer".

Absolutely Right! And When I try to continue this Dialog I get an Uups Message and end up with the Profile screen but without First and Second Name, altough I filled them at a Dialog before. Getting back brings again the "Update your wazer". Only Way Out is to switch to a random wazer. Then I'm not logged in but have ALL favorites and settings!! Shouldn't be so I think!

you need to look up the definition of of the word "spamming", so far i am the only that has offered any useful advice. now that i reverted to the previous version, my problem has been solved. i don't see any one else making the same claim. and as for the developers, it is clear that they never read these forums or interact with users. every problem i have ever had, i had to fix on my own because no one on these forums was capable of helping.

Some of the members in our community has noticed that they lost the TTS voices in the selection using iOs. Curious if anyone who has upgraded has experienced this :?:


I'm using the iOS version and found that it reads out some street names but not all of them.
On one road with multiple roundabouts it said "At the roundabout take the second exit, at the roundabout turn left". The turn left is for the roundabout after the one I was just approaching. (That is, I should be going straight ahead at the first roundabout and left at the following roundabout). This could be rather confusing if I didn't know where I was going…

I suspect that your problem is not with missing TTS voices. It is probably due how the new client announces instructions via TTS. Despite feedback during Beta, we were told this was "working as designed". Now, it seems that it isn't "working as designed" and will be reverted within a couple of months. More info here.


delete the app and then use itunes to revert back to version 3.7.8 until developers figure out what went wrong with this update. and turn off automatic updates.

I've tried that already, along with a complete re-install - TTS is still broken.
