So it seems to be hooked in, just like Nokia HERE.

Your steps above work, but unlike with the HERE apps, the actual directions don't seem to be getting passed in to Waze so that it generates a route. I always use the Search button on the phone to quickly find whatever location I'm looking for, then get directions via the WP maps app and then go to HERE Drive via the "right turn arrow" as you note above. With HERE Drive, the route is automatically generated if I do that, but with Waze, the app just launches and nothing else happens, so I have to do all searching from within Waze. This isn't a huge deal, but one of the cool things about Windows Phone is the ability to pin things like a contact to the Start screen - that way I have their contact info handy, and can also get directions to any address in that contact if needed. So it would be great if Waze could integrate with the WP maps app and get the directions handed off when Waze is launched from that entry point.

I'm not sure why it doesn't work for you. For me, it definitely starts Waze and feeds it the information. Waze then starts giving directions without further input. I just tried the Here+ app, and it wanted me to press Start first. ;)

I concur that battery drain is bad on my 1020, but the 1020 is a battery hog, even not using Waze. The best I've managed (leaving my phone virtually untouched), the battery lasts only 26 hours. If I actually use my phone, then I'm lucky to get 10 hours out of it. If I use it heavily, I drain it in less than 4 hours. Even my old crappy iPhone4 was better in this regard (with a 3-year old battery).

If I'm using Waze, then the problem is obviously worse. With a 1-amp charger, Waze will drain the battery in about 3 hours. I've just gotten a 2-amp charger, so hopefully that's a bit better.

I'm really hoping that MS is able to tweak the OS to a more efficient battery user, and for Waze to improve it on their end as well.

Waze on my Windows Phone just started to download voices again.
Only standard voices, not TTS.
Someone with the same 'problem' or is it just me :)

So I concluded that practical solution for me in "WAZE black day" will be use one of the Android oldies (which plenty around for few euros). Possibly I may get it even for free from my friends who changing regularly their Samsungs and LGs, thus having some oldies in storage box. Requirements for such 2-3 years old device not high, because it shall run only WAZE and nothing else. And it will remain all the time in the car, just like people do with Tom-Tom or other navi devices. The only thing I'll need to buy extra SIM card for the data connection, but in fact I'm paying already for the traffic on my current SIM card. So it will not be a new expense.
Any ideas or other solutions?

I was just thinking about the same solution.
But you do not need an extra SIM. Just use your Windows Phone as a WiFi hotspot in your car.

It has USB port for WiFi, I just need to buy dongle for that, and I will buy.
The problem is how do I install the program using the SD card? I don't understand how to do that.

Not yet, i'm working on that.
Should I have Internet connection in the entire using or only in the setup?

Help - Waze on Windows CE 6.0

Postby bmatanb » Fri Jul 04, 2014 5:17 pm

Hello everyone!
I'm not sure this is the location for the topic. If it is not the place, please move the topic.

I have a new multimedia screen to in my car - RoadNav s100, OS: Windows CE 6.0.
How can I install Waze on that? I have an SD card port for that.

Thanks in advance.
