The problem with "crabbing" (the icon moving sideways down a road) hasn't come up since updating, but when stopped my car icon will often be pointing in any direction *except* the one I'm travelling in.

This isn't a major issue for me, but it does place candy in out of reach places because it thinks I'm facing a different direction.
Make sure the road you're having problems with isn't set to a 1 way road in the editor. That will cause "crabbing" if you are driving in the opposite direction that the road is set to.

I am still having lots of problems with map squares not loading at close zoom levels - this causes routing problems that are very annoying. It's better with the 3.5.1.4 update, but still happening. Please see this thread for pics of what's happening.

Interesting, I had a similar problem at a particular intersection, but it has stopped completely since one of the last 2 releases (not sure which one though.)

I have had a ton of Waze crashes the last few days, I don't know what is going on. If seems to happen at predictable times, like at stops. I also get crashes if I click the advertisements so I wonder if it is related.

Perlin, can you comment on this too?

Please provide more information: screen resolution, auto-zoom selection and a screenshot.



Same issue on Razr Maxx(no mods) with zooming out past about the 20 mile scale(est) on the screen.
Alerts and wazers remain but the roads disappear. No auto zoom, logs sent.

I have.
removed, deleted folder, cleared cashes and reinstalled. No correction. This occurred after the update. On a GSII with a fresh install it also has the same issue.

This relates to TTS, but here's the full story.

3.5 version was updated through Play store, no problems. Navigated to work fine this morning.
I saw the Waze Google+ posting on "Robin" and decided to install it to play around later. Selected Waze integration while briefly looking at it at work, and shut it down.

Later when starting Waze to verify a menu option for someone. Waze just would not start, as it could not connect. I was connected on Wi-Fi at the time, so thought it was a network issue. Switched Wi-Fi off & tried 3G. Still the same - Waze could not connect to the network. A colleague verified that he connected fine, so I cleared Wazes data from Apps settings.
Voila, that worked ! Looks like Robin broke my Waze, but I'll figure that out later..

When I drove back home, I obviously had to set ASR back on as all my setting was toast. Restarted and set course home, and then Serena said in her finest English voice "Lets get streeteted".
I thought I heard wrong, but looked at the TTS files when I got back. The TTS in both files that says 'started' are pronounced as 'streeteted'.

It looks like 'St' is now overcompensated for after being pronounced as Saint all over. It's probably a good thing that Serena did not tel me to get "Saint-eted". That would have ended my editing career.

Here's the links to both files on my dropbox public folder as I cannot upload .tts to the forum :
Let's get streeteted.
Let's get streeteted. Drive Safely.

We should really get TTS sorted if there is no form of whitespace between word abbreviations. 'N1' is not 'North One'. Fine if it was 'N 1' is, but parsing text can seriously be improved.
Better get streeteted on fixing this asap.

I could be smoking my socks, but when a better route is found popup appears, it might be interfering with TTS.
I had 3 notices in succession this morning, and when manually closing the final notification I got an exit left TTS which was less than 100 meters before the exit.
With 4 lanes to cross in peak flow, this cannot be done without being an idiot, so had no option but wait out the delay about 1km beyond this point of no return.
Even if the suggested route is a valid alternative, and one that I would normally take in an extreme situation, Waze itself has never routed me around this way before. I also never checked if this was the initial route, as I left Waze to automatically start navigation when I left home.

I cannot safely say if it was actually just a last-minute change or if the previous pop-ups blanketed the 1km exit left notice, but I'll keep an eye open for this.

Did anyone else have something similar?

That pinkish route reminds me of a not so major problem.
When navigating and you go to the stop option in the menu, even when you do not select a stop, the route is highlighted as the pinkish one from there, not the original purple marker.

Hi

I'm trying to use Waze 3.5.1.4 on a Samsung Galaxy s3 4g (LTE) model GT-i9305 running Android 4.1.1 but Waze keeps crashing whatever I try to do. I've been submiting the crash reports but do we have a reasonable expectation to have Waze working on this phone ?

best regards

luis

Hi

thanks although I had done it 2 or 3 times. Also the phone is brand new so the install was fresh. Previously I had Waze running on iPhone 3gs and for a few days on a Android 4.04 from ZTE (ZTE Skate Acqua) without issues. Also it still is able to run on my old Nokia e71 :)


this issue with this phone is a PIA.... :)
