To whom it may concern: I eat quite often at Taco Bell here in Southern California. As you know, several companies such as Ramada Inn, Target and Taco Bell are now paying Waze to insert
bubble icons on the Waze map to advertise a sale or promotion then has a "Go" navigate selection. the problem is that at least for Taco Bell, the "Go" does not get you all the way there. In Riverside it navigates you to down the street and on the opposite side of the street of where it is. In Yorba Linda, it navigates you to several blocks away where the Costco store is. However, when you do a regular "navigate to" Taco Bell, it takes you right up to the building. This is probably not the place to report this, but I am sure that this can be brought to the attention of someone who needs to know. Both of these "Taco Bell" bubble icons are not at the actual location, the "Go" takes you to the icon. I next checked bubble icons for "Wal-Mart" and "Target" stores. Both of these bubble icons were at the correct locations.

* Android users suffering from poor GPS or poor network connection *
This may be related to system resources. Waze is much improved for me as long as I restart the phone every day after applying updates. Background processes are the usual Android, plus antivirus, plus Whatsapp. Free RAM after restart is approx 120MB.

Good work Waze. Did 3hrs with new version. Much more stable. Only lost GPS twice, didn't lose network at all. Camera pop ups didn't freeze it, and GPS didn't lag behind.
Thanks!

Is this a bug? I've not noticed it before.
If the next junction is onto an unnamed segment, Waze displayed the name of the next NAMED segment after that.

It's supposed to do that.

Is it new in this version? It didn't used to do it.

No, there must be more to it than that. I drive a lot around little country roads with no names. Previously, I just got the turn instruction, but now the 'wrong' name is there too.

Please stop the stupid scrolling in menus. If there is room on the screen to fit the whole menu, display the whole menu.

Other gps applications ("navigation") don't have this problem.
Can I configure my phone different to solve it?


I believe it will eventually be fixed later.
You could buy an original car dock from your phone's brand if it has audio out and your radio supports this.

I did the same thing

Ok. Thanks for your help!

Try :
Menu -> Settings -> Sound -> always play sound to speaker > uncheck
Since I have option turned off navigation info is back in order.

this keeps slipping my mind.

A U-turn = "turn right, and then turn right". i always need to double check to make sure that it is a U-turn, and not a "turn right into a lane, and turn right on the next right turn".
