iOS beta 3.5.99.8 feedback thread

Postby scarlogarcia » Thu Feb 21, 2013 7:20 pm

Sent "my location" from "send location" feature. That location is a no named parking lot saved to my favorites as "Work".

My SMS message doesn't really inform where I am but only a blank space.

There is a parking lot without name but with city field filled.

I understand your point but I was expecting something like this:

Sorry, I didn't describe.

I was making a randomly and crazy test. So, I set a "start point" (not a stop point) and a destination. What I mean for "expected"? I got my "highlighted route" not fitted to my start and destination point. Since that rout of 120 meters had its highlighted route totally outside of my points.

I never made such test before so I don't know if it is related to this beta version or not. If not, please ignore my post.

Couldn't reproduce. If you have exact steps to reproduce it, please share.

As described by Davidt here viewtopic.php?f=373&t=40677&start=30#p371065

That route must be very short, less than 700 meters I guess.

Similar behavior was observed for long routes at the beginning of a run when I got an instruction "proceed to the highlighted route". Noticed that last behavior in all non-beta version of of Waze as far as I can remember.

Do you want me to document this last "bug" when it happens?

Not so much a bug report, but considering I was playing with contact searches, which still don't work properly I thought I'd mention it. the pull up/down search type at the bottom of the screen in search results has the little arrow on the right the wrong way round, or so it seems to me anyway.

just thought I'd say

Same thing here..."Mcdonalds" brought me to an e-mail link for my office e-mail.

I'm having the same problem with a number of searches.

The Contacts search should only search the name field of the contacts, IMO. Further, Contact results should not be prioritized over other results, especially when the search does not include the name of any contact. The best results seem to come from Foursquare, FWIW...

When I installed and started for the first time, a blue foll-screen dialog popped up, but was immediately replaced by the question if I want to drive to work. The window did not reappear, so I can't say whether I should vote in the app-store or connect to facebook.

This is at least irritating.

Forgot to mention it before:

Since about .6 or .4, streaming Waze over BT to my Radio gives me a beep at the beginning of each message. Since Waze talks a lot when I'm navigating in my hometown, this is a LOT OF BEEPS.

Beep - in 1km turn right
Beep - in 200m turn right into
Beep - turn right into...

You get it?

Best regards,

Detlev

It's quite short. Radios tend to cut a little at the beginning of a transmission, and yours might not switch as fast. Fwiw, BT-streaming uses at least half a dozen different protocols, some of them are made for hand-free phone usage, others for high-quality stereo music. The iPhone supports most of them, but car head units vary a lot. Mine does only hand-free voice profiles, this might make a difference.

On mine I get an explicit "Incoming call from 0000" on the dashboard, and I see that waze starts the communication kind of a quarter a second before playing the sound, so hence why I hear no beep but do hear a little silence before the instruction. (the same pause afterwards).

This is with hands-free profile. See my post above about the difference I see with hands-free and voice profile and background instructions.

I think the question in your case is if the beep comes explicitly from waze, comes from the BT handshake, or is the car doing the beep itself


There was no beep before the current betas. I have used waze for over a year in this car, and mostly with Bluetooth.
