Yeah, now that I think of it, you're right. That was a Cartouche problem.

TTS voices must also be downloaded. It downloads the voice, basically, not any set of prompts, I suppose more like a set of pronunciations.

This is to be expected. Waze uses the screen, GPS, and network connection pretty much constantly, so it's gonna drain the battery pretty hard, just like any other app that uses all those things. The phone gets hot because the battery is being drained quickly.

I highly recommend a car charger.

Oh man, is that what it is? One of my favorites keeps disappearing. I have (at least) two other favorites on unnamed segments.

I hadn't heard about it before. I added my third unnamed-segment favorite last week. Soon after, I noticed my second unnamed-segment landmark was missing, so I added it from my recent destinations. It's now, again, not in my favorites.

It looks like you're allowed to have two now, instead of just one like in 3.0. :roll:

My first one hasn't gone anywhere, and it's on a Private Road segment. My second (which vanished when I added the third, and which vanished after I tried to re-add it) and third are on Parking Lot Road segments.

Am I crazy, or did the "Other search engines" thing at the bottom previously say the name of the selected search engine when you were flipping through them? Either way, it should.

Via my iPhone 4S

Look at it on a computer. The iOS top bar, the menu and report buttons, and the friends button are clear. The map and speedometer are noticeably blurry and/or aliased.

We're hardly "ripping it to shreds". This is a thread for reporting bugs, and that's a bug.

I don't think anyone's gonna sit here and make a case that Waze doesn't need to be tested on iOS 7.

I've entered BUG 4753 for this, though... :mrgreen:

Exactly my point. It may not be waze problem, but an iOS 7 problem. Betas have bugs. Again, please wait until waze officially supports the public release of iOS 7...

I don't think that's what Alan was saying exactly. I highly doubt the problem is with iOS 7 itself, but rather with how Waze is equipped to handle the way iOS 7 works. It's something Waze will have to change, just like they had to adapt to iOS 6's location service type flags.

You can't wait for the public release of an OS to start developing for that OS. Otherwise you're gonna leave everyone who upgrades to iOS 7 on days one, two, three, four, or five dead in the water for a while.

Hi. Every time I update, including this time, my settings get reset. I have to go in to change miles to kms. Not a big deal, just an annoyance.

Waze version: every version I've updated, including minor updates
iOS version: I always stay current
