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!

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 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 that the TTS has been fixed, but the app was not updated. Guess the fix was on the server. That's excellent news. Now I get the street names rather than just "TURN LEFT"

However, since 3.8.0 was released, I still notice an issue with not given the turn notice until you are right on top of the turn off. Sometimes I get the audio notice after I make the turn.

The previous version was fine, given ample warning before the turn. Not I get the notice only a few feet away from the turn.

Please fix

Having an issue with the new "Send Location" feature. It now requires me to enter my phone number and receive a "verification text" to continue to send my locations and drives to my friends. Text is not a feature of my current carrier plan - voice and data only - so i cannot receive a verification text. this is a feature i use a LOT, and now i can't....

correct - unless you're willing to pay for a text plan or pay per text, your phone will not receive texts. this is not a discussion about cell phone plans, this is a discussion about the new features of the waze app.
