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.

Have you tried clearing the TTS cache? The use of the cc@TTS search code is discussed in the wiki here: http://www.waze.com/wiki/?title=Search_codes

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

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

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%.

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

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

Incorrect. Use the 3-state mute button on the main menu. You should read the release notes. :mrgreen:
