Known issue, will be fixed in a future version (not soon unfortunately).

After being navigated 15 minutes long, the client crashed upon tapping the right report button. I've not touched anything at least 5-10 min. prior to the crash.

I would like to also add that Waze was crashing like crazy on a drive from Georgia to South Carolina - it seemed like I could trigger the crash by attempting to add a stop, and the crash would occur after indicating that I was a passenger, and then bringing up the keyboard. Waze doesn't seem to know it's crashing either, normally I would be prompted to submit logs, although I never have been.

It has been answered many times, it's Japanese. If you don't have Japanese font on your device it turns to this.

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

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.
