Gas stations and TTS enabled

Postby MapSir » Thu May 01, 2014 9:10 am

Hi All,

We are very happy to announce that we enabled two important features for the drivers in the Philippines - Gas stations and TTS (text to speech) !!!

The Gas stations feature will allow drivers to update gas prices for stations nearby, providing the community of drivers the most accurate prices and let them filter stations by price from the settings menu.
To update the price at a station open the reports menu and select the Gas Prices icon.

The TTS is an audio feature that uses the street names in voice navigation.
Please see our manual for enabling the feature and play with the settings:

We would be happy to hear your feedback!

Enjoy :)

Thanks for activating the Gas Stations and TTS using street names feature. This is very much appreciated by the Waze users here in the Philippines. I have a couple of feedback though.

I am an Adroid user running the latest Waze version Release 3.7.8.0.

1. The Gas Stations & Prices menu on settings menu seems to sometimes disappear. Restarting the application a couple time fixes this. Any ideas why this is happening?
2. For the TTS using street names feature, the voices of Tom and Samantha are not on my list. How can this be resolved?

Thanks and looking forward for your thoughts on the items I have mentioned above.

Hi,

The issue with the settings menu is a known bug which we are working on, no ETA on a fix yet.

The TTS voices take some time to appear, try restarting the app a few times, you also need good GPS cover and data connection.

Thanks a lot for the feedback, if you have any other questions please see our support page,
we uploaded many manuals and instructions that might help.

Irad,

We thank Waze HQ for enabling Gas Prices and TTS for the Philippines!

Question on the Gas Prices settings. I do not have the option for Gas Stations & Prices under settings menu. I have tried the following versions: 3.7.8 and 3.7.9.905 without seeing that option on Samsung Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3. SpeedDzel and kazmuth confirmed that they have this option under settings.

As I said, it's a known bug, sometimes the menu will appear and sometimes it won't.
Restarting the app might help but we're working on a fix.

Thanks.

Any advise when the TTS can be fixed? I know there is no ETA to fix based on the thread but somehow there might be an update by now already. ;-) Just curious how TOM and SAMANTHA will pronounce the local streets.

Join the FB group in my signature, I have a sample video there where I drove through streets with English and Filipino names.
