Correct and fixed for the next version.

This button is for the current session only (it won't stick upon reopening the client). The settings button, however, locks it for good (until you choose otherwise).

1. If on start up I do a route, then ask it for alternatives and select one of the alternatives the entire route disappears and the TTS says I have arrived at my destination. Works fine if it recalcualtes enroute, only seems to occur if I'm actually sat at the start point.

Could not reproduce. Maybe you can provide specific steps to reproduce?

Known issue, will be fixed.

Hi guys,

How many of you have experienced (purple) street labels blinking?
Any information regarding this problem will be helpful - does it happen on day/night mode (or both)? Does it happen on start or a few min into the route? Does it happen randomly or after doing something (like rerouting, reporting, etc.).

Thanks!

Hi guys,

The problem with the scoreboard in Malaysia should be fixed now. If you're still experiencing problems, please share.

1. Street names are not always spoken. Sometimes it just says in .5 milestone left or exit right and doesn't always say street names or exit numbers o major highways

2. When traffic or any event pops on screen, the news version has a big box on the left side with the info . Old version was centered and smaller .. Also text in new box is small and too hard to read...

I'm still waiting to hear on these issues... I uninstalled and reinstalled and its still sometimes just saying TURN RIGHT instead of TURN RIGHT ON XXX STREET.. it does says the street name when you get 500FT or .5 miles .. but not like it used to. it never said things like "in 1 mile turn left"

any ideas??

What is your prompts language?
Did you try a clean installation?
Did it start since the upgrade?

I'm sorry if this has been posted already, but is anyone else having trouble downloading any of the voices for the minimal turn instructions? Mine keeps getting stuck at about 50% and I always eventually get the timeout message of it being unable to download the requested voices.

Worse than that, it now prompts me to try to re-download those voices each time I start Waze up again even though I've selected other voice options. Everytime I retry, it just gets stuck and ends up telling me to try again later.

This seems to happen regardless of whether I'm on LTE or WiFi or if I switch between the two during the download (by, say, driving out of range of my WiFi).

It's distracting how Waze will ask if your driving to work or heading home, and if you click yes, then a second screen comes up where you have to click yes again.

I think both of these screens should be combined into one screen. If it says Heading home, on that very same screen show the routes button and the bar showing potential hazards and ETA. This means you would only have to click yes ONE time. I'm all for less button tapping, more looking at the road. Plus this would be faster and more efficient to have it on one screen, rather than TWO screens which take more time or make the user feel as if it is an 'annoying popup'.

That's my feedback on that.

Then secondly I have a thread here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=50887 regarding that Waze (or something) pauses the audio upon re-entering the app. See the thread for the full details how to reproduce the problem. Basically you start a music app, then waze and start a route. You make a pitstop and pull the 3.5mm jack out of the phone and take it into the store with you. When you return to the car and plug in the jack again to the stereo, you unpause the music and as soon as you fire up Waze it causes the music to fade out and pause again. I'm not sure if this is a bug in IOS, the particular music app (Slacker, Sirius XM, Pandora), or Waze... but the commonality is as soon as Waze comes into view the music stops. The workaround is when you get to your stop, close Waze from it's turn off menu. Then when you return to the car, fire up music then fire up Waze, you can continue your route without the music switching off. I wonder if it has to do with IOS though because when you pull the 3.5 mm jack out, it senses it and auto pauses the music. This is a key step to reproducing the problem, because if you leave the jack plugged in, you can multi-task between other apps and Waze all day long and the music does not auto pause when Waze comes back into view.


I've noticed similar odd behavior as well if I disconnect the external audio system (in my case, a USB connection to Ford's SYNC system) before shutting down Waze. Essentially when I go to launch Waze back up, the background music audio gets stuck and I usually end up having to do a hard restart of the iPhone to get background audio and Waze to work together again.

The vast majority of music apps on the iPhone (Pandora, Slackr, Spotify, TuneIn, SiriusXM, etc.) all seem to be funneled through its iPod interface, making them appear to external systems like your car radio as if you were just playing the iPod in your iPhone. This also allows the iPhone and/or your car to start/stop the music when appropriate output devices are available, as well as the prev/next/play/pause buttons on the external player when available. Waze, however, seems to send its audio differently so that it can "talk over" any music that's playing. There might be some kind of error happening sometimes, maybe involving memory use limits that breaks the background music track's ability to continue when Waze tries to talk. Further this may be either a Waze problem or an Apple problem, or both. Either way, I hope it gets fixed because it's really difficult (read: dangerous) to hard reset an iPhone while driving without pulling over.

With the 3.7.0.0 release on iPhone 4, ios 6.1.3, the map is not smooth any longer. It makes large jumps in position about every 15 seconds. It is so coarse in updates that it is missing me making turns and frequently recalculates even though I am on the correct route. VERY ANNOYING!

5/31 - Edit ..... I noticed this morning that my speed always reads ZERO MPH, I suspect the GPS isn't updating regularly. Prior to this release the speed was reading correctly.
