No, we have also one word before and one behind for Czech and it works.

Ahw, I was just guessing. Do you have a screenshot how that looks?

Here you are but I am afraid that we went pretty much off the topic.

I'm experiencing this incorrect ratio only at first-run of each reinstall. Then it's back to normal and stays normal...till next one.

EDIT: Saw another post (which I merged into this topic) about phones running hot with this version again. My phone was hot (and plugged into the car charger) when it crashed.


On the return trips (multi-destination) had several issues...

1) Two Hard Crashes of Waze - Logs sent just before 5pm Eastern & at about 7pm Eastern
2) Tried to submit 4 map issues - 3 didn't go through
3) Driving in traffic, got an ETA Change alert that said "traffic clearing up" and moved my arrival -10 minutes, before that one even closed, got another one "traffic building up" and moved my arrival +10 minutes for a net change of ZERO.

I experienced similar issues on 5+ hour drive. Ran very warm (On stock car charger and seemed to be charge neutral [no net gain of battery]), anytime I tried to submit any reports where I added any text they would crash waze (three times in all, and then I gave up adding text). Logs sent.

Before the update, when I was idle such as waiting at a red light, I'd get event pop ups on the map letting me know of nearby events within my selected radius. After the update, I get no event pop ups when idle. I checked the setting and it shows the correct event radius that I want. Also, if I select the level of guidance to including street names, it only says about half of the words when giving directions. If I select directions only, it has no problems. I have done a clean install and it doesn't change these problems.

Voice directions get cut off.

I'm using the most recent Android waze app. When driving to a location that I've routed, the voice commands only tell me part of the instructions. It does the same thing when I try to use voice commands to report an event. I have the level of guidance selected as including street names. If I change the setting to directions only, then it's not an issue when getting basic driving directions.

zCougar wrote:The biggest annoyance is that every audio prompt pauses media player. In previous release I lowered prompts volume and heard guidance when playing podcasts but now every beep and word from Waze pauses podcast. It is very annoying. Please restore the previous behavior or add a config option for that under sound settings menu.


I'd like to reiterate what ZCougar said. One of the main reasons I use Waze over Google Navigation is that I could listen to my music (mostly instrumental) and have the turn-by-turn directions talk over the music without any interruption. Now this new updates pauses the music and makes the drives much more annoying for me and my passengers. I know other people have asked for this interrupting behavior in the past but it should really be a setting where users can toggle whether to have voices interrupt other audio apps or have it talk over for users like me.

What would be ideal is if we could also have the turn-by-turn navigation panned to just the left or right speaker so only the driver's side would have the directions and passenger's can listen to music with minimal distraction.

Also, can it be possible to use our handset's own text-to-speech engines? I like using Ivona voice on Android.

Can the "Later" button be included in the next release to report map issues?

This will benefit all who wants to put more info later when they reach their destination.
