waze storing logos and sound recordings on my android

Postby c49d6210a4204472bdbb2edd5e82d1e6 » Mon Aug 20, 2018 9:11 am

Hi, can anyone advise WHY Waze is filling my phone storage with sound recordings of turns, directions etc and pictures of logo's. Not only is it VERY annoying and frustrating as i only have 8mb of storage it means i have to keep down loading to my PC, then removing as they dont show up in Gallery.
Please help me find a way of stopping this, many thanks in advance :cry: :-)

To save space use a voice without street names.

Voices with street names download turn instructions for each new route.

Turn instructions for voices without street names are downloaded only once.

After selecting a voice without street names, type the code cc@tts in the search bar.

This will clear all voice instructions from the memory of your mobile.

Close the app and open it again.
The instruction package of the selected voice will be downloaded, which will be used in all the routes without the need to download new instructions.

Pictures and logos it is not possible to make them disappear. They are part of the interface and/or the map.

In my mobile the app occupies at least 136Mb of which 112Mb correspond to the base of the app and the rest to my personal configuration (language, voice, favorites, ...).

I do not think it is possible to reduce the size of the app much more.

Maybe you did not understand me.

To change the voice type go to the Waze settings > Sound and voice and in "voice instructions" press in the "Waze voice".

Locate the available voices in your language.

Choose one that does NOT read below it "Including street names".

Then you do the writing cc@tts and restart the app.

8mb seems to me very little free space.

I only know a navigation app light enough for such a small space and it is so light because almost 100% is online.
With what that implies: total dependence on data connection, data consumption for everything, ...
