No network issues, everything else works fine. I just tried deleting the app and reinstalling it and presto, navigation is fixed! Yay!

No dice. Still getting a different navigation voice, and simple directions without street names. Any other ideas?

No Longer Getting Spoken Street Names

Postby udog » Wed May 22, 2013 1:39 pm

Using Waze 3.6 on iPhone 4s iOS 6.1.3. All latest stuff. My navigation guidance is set to "Full", but I am not getting anything more than "turn right" or "turn left" - no more street names. And the voice is different - still female (English), but not the one that's been in use for quite some time. I've tried turning the navigation settings to No Guidance and switching back to Full, and powering off and on the phone, but still no change.

If memory serves, when I upgraded to 3.7 and opened Waze, a popup message showed up and explained the three-state mute. If you had to get a new phone, and hadn't made that upgrade on your old phone, then Waze would assume that you were a first-time user and that it wouldn't have to explain changes from the last version.

Not sure if this is new, but it looks like the 'street names' options is hidden in the language options.

->Settings
->Sound
->Navigation guidance -> (Language (sometimes with a name or description))

When you select a language, you probably need to select one with "Including street names" after the name. Such as under:
English (US) - Samantha
Including street names


or

English (US) - Tom
Including street names


Note: When you look at the "Navigation guidance", before clicking it, it doesn't show anything about the street name part!... so it's not clear that this is where you need to go to select it.

In conclusion: If you just see this, without "Samantha" or "Tom" listed, then this may be why WAZE is not saying the street names when navigating:
->Navigation guidance ->
English (US)


It was totally unclear that this is where I needed to go for streetnames... and I only found it via much trial and error.

Maybe the uninstall/reinstall helped the person above to default to one of the named navigators who speaks street names.

It could also indicate that you have no network active while driving.
Try starting the route while at home or on wifi and do a map refresh of the area as well. If it is network related, at least the first few roads should be cached and likely properly announced.

While you are driving, do you see any other wazers on the map or get any alerts? If not, it's likely network related.
In that case check that your data bundle is not depleted or that your APN settings are still 100%.

Just found the 3 state mute button, had never seen that before. I was expecting that to be in SETTINGS/SOUNDS. Thanks!

no more choice to turn off it announcing directions but navigate you on the screen anymore.

Sorry, not really. Maybe another iPhone user has some ideas?
