Since this is labeled the "official feedback thread", here is some feedback based on a thread I've created : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=50277
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.
