I'm frustrated !


Results are given by foursquare, not by waze.
France is not ready.
We are told that 90 pourcent of gas station landmark must be created before waze valid this option.

A couple of things that I have noticed.

The GPS signal continually gets lost in this version. When it does reconnect, Waze tries to reroute but I'm already past the turn.

The voice isn't working correctly. It is only announcing to turn right or left. It doesn't include the distance when instructing these turns either. This was quite confusing until I realized what was happening. Normally, when you hear Waze tell you when to turn, you are usually right on the needed turn.

The UI needs to be adjusted. The time and miles are too close together. Sometimes you cannot read either one because they are squished together.

The app seems to run a lot slower than the Google Play version.

Most of the time the street names I need are the ones intersecting with the street im on, normally im looking for a specific street (or landmark) or confirming that im where I think I am. This is also the reason why I suggested making the current street and intersecting streets visible at other zoom levels.

Not sure what other people would think but what about making the font size based on the distance the street is away.

Please note that this is not the case for everyone!!
On my phone and tablet the font size is perfect!

But maybe that's because I've got a screen that's over 4" and a qHD resolution.
  • The nav bar is too big in landscape mode - we're working on a new (and smaller) nav bar for landscape.

  • Also this is not the case for me.
    It's a little big, but not too big for me.
  • Adding house numbers at the end of a drive - this is a great idea. we'll try to get it in, but probably it won't be in the upcoming version.

  • I wouldn't really mind for this option.

    Better first get a proper parking function, like when hitting the 'P' the client seaches for a parking place nearby.
    And make a option to mark parking lots as free of paid.
    Also make an option for streets (checkbox) to mark them when parking is allowed or dissalowed (maybe easier).

    Font size: It's unreadable on regular streets and landmarks. Not good for orientation and safety. Please allow users to choose the size or at least revert back to the sizes of version 3.2.

    The nav bar is to big also in portrait mode! Especially it covers too large area ahead in 2D map mode.


    +1 on both points!

    Ding, ding, ding, you win the prize! The font sizes need to be adjustable. Some of us are still running older phones from the days (not that long ago) when the smaller the phone, the better.

    I have noticed that on interstate exits, where there is a lot of wording on the exit sign that has been properly transcribed to waze, the text does wrap nicely to 2 lines in this new, larger box. However, I feel strongly that (in the US, at least) the "Exit X" text is probably the most important part, and it will always show up with the old, smaller box.

    If by this, you mean displaying the complete street address of the destination "123 Main St." instead of just the street name "Main St.", I'm all for waiting another month to get this implemented in the next release!!!

    I would be much more impressed with fixing the issues and getting accurate house numbers than worrying about parking lots/decks/garages. Of course, most of my travels allow for on street parking.
    We all have our priorities... :)

    I hope these aren't the only three issues you're looking at resolving before the next release. I only mention this because your wording is vague enough to be possibly interpreted that way. I'd like to assume that all the issues raised will be addressed.

    I like the small font too. So please make it adjustable instead of bigger.
