That suggests they have your registered number in their contacts and waze has suggested you add them as friends as a result.

I read through the first 17 pages of this thread and while a lot of people are talking about the contact list stuff, I didn't see anything about actual drive sharing.

Does it work? Has it ever worked?

I have tried repeatedly this week to share my drive with a friend, or have them share theirs with me. ONE time, I was able to see them in real time on the map, with their route displayed and their place on it. Even then, when they had to deviate from the route, the map lost them entirely, not displaying their icon anywhere on it at all.

Every other time, I'm only shown a pin at their destination, not their route or their realtime location on the map, even though they chose to "share their drive" with me. I mean, it's worked maybe 1 time out of 12.

Is that the experience of other users? Because this is basically useless.

I can't confirm that. Sharing often my trips. And receiving others. I had it work like 1 time not, but 12 times with out any problems...

This morning I was getting gas and tried to update gas prices but I was told I was a baby wazer and not allowed to update gas prices yet. I've been updating gas prices regularly for some time now and this is the first time I've seen this message. Anybody else having this problem?

This is a long time known issue.
It's a back end-server side-thing...
Sometimes it appears... You can't do anything against it...
I haven't seen it for a while now...

Since the update Favorites don't appear in searches anymore. So I figured I would start going through the list itself. I manually reordered my favorires in alphabetical order to easily find entries but twice now the list reverted to its original order. Any known fix to either of these issues?

Mixed but overall good news

Postby krikketdoug » Wed Jul 23, 2014 12:15 am

A few days ago I had my bluetooth stop working with Waze, with mixed results.

To fix the problem, I deleted and reinstalled the app. Problem solved. (The negative part is that as far as I can tell, this is a problem unique to this release. I could be wrong. I haven't been around for years quite yet.)

On the plus side, by deleting and reinstalling the app, I had a pleasant and surprising side-effect. My ability to see my recent history by looking at recent searches is now working again. My saved searches are now lasting lasting a minimum of 12 hours. While I wish it was 24 or even 72 hours, this is a vast improvement.

Once again, as a sample size of one, I can't guarantee success elsewhere, but I wish you luck!

+1!

The problem is that by default iPhone users (unlike Android) have no option to report a car stopped on road so have to resort to this.

I think I succeeded in reporting a car in the road via voice command but it's so fiddly I don't bother.

If you say so. They should offer a list of all of them to turn off which ought take a couple of hours plus testing. Still, pretty minor. In fact, the Settings area really should be redone as it's not well thought out where stuff lives.
Dave2084 wrote:(I know this because with every new release I have to fix it myself and it takes me less than a minute).

So how are you turning off just that warning? I have never found such an option except to turn off all sound. I am on the warpath for any reported car on side of road that is useless (doesn't meet rules on wiki). Some people treat it like I-Spy {groan}

Google has struck. HARD. I will not support any action that proselytizes -- which this does. That's evil. I use the send ETA function quite a bit and this version killed it.

I have to say thank you very much for the new "fun" of turning off auto update so I can prevent this version from being installed. I'm grateful I had a backup on my Mac that I could restore the old app without even restoring my phone. And when you decide to stop supporting the prior version (server reject), I'll sadly say goodbye to my favorite app.

And there's the problem I have with it. They do not need my number even though they already have it (there was a time when I was uploading contacts but I stopped; they still have the data).
