I'd really like to ask waze to be less strict with the language options and the user's country and just let the user select whichever language he wants, and even enable TTS with the non-native language for whoever wants to risk it.

So my case on the other thread is basically this:
- a regular portuguese user can select the text and voice languages from a long set of options, which is great.
- myself I had tried to enable tts via the navigation code, and hence why my voice language setting had disappeared. I could change the text labels, with the same language list as before, but the voice language setting is not there, and whichever language was selected before (Portuguese or English or anything else) would stick forever.

Now the case that is making me envy of a friend, he's been some days in Germany, and when he came back his device has TTS enabled, and the list of text languages is smaller than mine (but fortunately still includes english and portuguese), and the list of voice languages includes two english and two german male/female combinations, nothing else, not even Portuguese).

So in my case I want to try the TTS in english and german, even if the portuguese road names will sound weird, and in his case he's listening to the road names in english and albeit can disable the TTS, can't switch to portuguese anymore.

So in conclusion, let us select *any* text language and *any* voice language and, hidden code, enable the tts and have it working even if not in the native language.

He tells me that the TTS, besides the reading the road names, has extra instructions that I never heard on my device, like "prepare for something", but I haven't heard his device myself. Mine just says "in 1km/800m/400m/200m do something".

please? ;)

That's correct, currently you can select only native language for the TTS, but we are working on expanding this option, so you'd be able to select between multiply languages.

I think I found out a minor regression on 3.5.1. When the client starts on my iPhone 4 I see the nice new splash screen with the better image quality, and then for less than half a second before the maps are shown, I see the old splash screen with less quality and bigger letters. It's the bigger black letters below waze that are more noticeable. Can try to screenshot them, but it's gonna be hard ;)

PS: this time it was easier to grab them. Here's the screen I see for one second or something depending on the speed of the device, and then the screen I see for less than a second before the map shows.

When I was using 3.5, the app would crash sporadically, sometimes would claim there was no internet connection when the phone was already getting a signal. 2 days later 3.5.1 is released, i figure this would fix the problem. It in fact made the situation worse.
No matter what i am doing in Waze, the app crashes within a minute or two of being used. I can be navigating, I can just have it open to the map, no matter what, it just crashes and goes back to the springboard.
I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, force closed it from the task manager, rebooted my phone several times... Heck the only thing i havent done is wipe out my phone and start over. This is incredibly frustrating. What bothers me the most is that i showed the app to my girlfriend which has the same setup as mine (except she has verizon), and Waze works 100% fine for her. Now she cant stop using it!

I love the concept of Waze, it would really help me with my commute to my job, i just wish it WORKED on my phone!!!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

**EDIT: Yes I have already submitted logs and emailed them. I just havent gotten a response yet.

Please elaborate on the scenario so I'd understand what are you referring to by saying "not working".

Each time i logged into one of them i get a different result in My Dashboard, so i stick with the "world" one since it has some activities. So, is there any correlation between these types of wazes with the waze in my iphone? any possibility that my iPhone's waze is connected to either US or Israelis?

Where are you from? If you're not from US, Canada or Israel, you're supposed to log into the WORLD server (both in the app and in the web). Actually the app recognize your location automatically and select for you the proper server (unless you use fake GPS apps). This way all your points and road data will be saved into your (correct) dashboard.

Thank you. I love to drive and love even more to discover new roads, both for the pleasure of driving and for having more stuff to improve on the maps. I'd still suggest to keep the feature enabled as a hidden feature for editors/cm's, if not for munching new roads, at least to enhance the speed average of the least driven roads.

I've just done the test with and without the feature enabled, and with it disabled I got my direct route of minor/freeway, with it enabled I was sent through primary and streets in the middle of the forest (which I loved, the feeling of a thin street in the middle of trees with the fog and knowing no other car will be there), and around the villages, sends me through green dotted roads.

Anyway, the bug report here is: please DO NOT disable this feature. If you don't want it to be visible for the regular user, make it a easter egg code (liek the 2##2 debug).

This option is still enabled in countries where we don't have enough road data. It has been (and will be) removed only in countries where we have enough road data and the % of the road munching is not large.

I feel lucky. These issues are not horrible like others are having. (knock on wood)


I have to add that ETA calculations still seem a bit wonky. I'm not sure if it's because there are not enough Wazers to obtain accurate data, or what. Can anyone clarify how it's calculated?
