Just a bit scary at first because you will be back as baby wazer ;-). But multiple closing and opening of waze will bring back your status. I just lost my favorites because at first i did not know the command ##@restorefav in restoring favorites.

Fortunately for me, the workaround worked. I am using iOS. Thanks.

Unfortunately it still will not work Kazmuth...dozens of installs/uninstalls/re-installs/logins/logouts later, still the same. I just also read the post that it is a known bug and that they are working on a fix... Will just be patient until that day comes. Maybe it has to do with the new Kitkat OS for Android... :(

Re-posting this workaround to get TTS to work;

In case you are having problems with TTS voice Samantha not appearing, I have a workaround that worked for me (iOS):
1) uninstall waze
2) re-install waze then open it
3) DON'T ALLOW LOCATION ACCESS; also DON'T LOGIN yet, instead use Temporary user or leave username blank
4) when asked for location choose UNITED STATES
5) click Settings > Sound> 'Samantha including street names' appears, check it
6) close waze then go to your iOS settings> privacy > location services > switch on for waze
7) open waze then login your old username

For Android, just log out and log in again

I have my GPS location set (very strong signal), data ison, with H+ full signal, and steady data stream. My Waze App (after re-installing several times, beta versions, latest public release, etc.) still doesn't show Samantha or Tom. I am using the Samsung Galaxy S4 with Android Kitkat. Whatever I do, it doesn't want to show.

Oh, for what it is worth, whenever I enter ##@tts, it ALWAYS says "TTS feature is disabled, please restart". It doesn't toggle. It creates the impression that it is on by default, and toggles off when entering ##@tts, however, no voice navigation with TTS is available neither before or after the command.

Please Help!

Hi guys,

In order for the TTS to be enabled on your device you need a good GPS reception,
Once the system recognizes your location it will automatically enable the feature.
So please make sure you have GPS and Wifi or Data working good.

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

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.

Same issue with iOS 7.1.1 . TTS have issue. no street name feature voices on my list

Waze App- Release 3.7.8.0

cryptmaster wrote: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.

Phone Specs:
Model Number: GT-N7100 (Note 2)
Android Version: 4.3
Kernel Version: 3.0.31-2437454
Waze Version: Release 3.7.8.0
Waze Username: cryptmaster
