Two more commutes with the new version...on the way home last night, crashed 5-6 times. On the way this morning, it crashed 3 times before I got on my second (of 5) freeway, AND my navigation stopped coming back up as interrupted. Usually when it crashed, I can just tap the icon and it restarts my route and I don't have to mess with it, since I'm driving. But today, that didn't happen so I couldn't even use it!

It will be helpful for other wazers if you could provide your mobile phone brand, model and OS version to see whether they are facing the same problem as yours.

While phone/OS might be the cause of the crash (I have Razr Maxx HD w/ 4.1.2 - and the crashing with accessibility on has been a very longstanding issue), I too noticed that crash and re-start while navigating didn't restart the navigation in process.
I'm thinking that has nothing to do with model/OS.

Why have the categories (Restaurants, Fastfood, Bank, etc) been removed? I was so happy when this was introduced a few versions ago; I finally felt that Waze had completely caught up and surpassed all other navigation apps/devices. But now only Gas is left.

This is both a shame and a pitty. Please get this useful feature back in the app.

Cannot download any voice prompts for any languages. Gets stuck downloading either at 0% or somewhere in the middle. After a while it times out and "Uh-oh" message appears. This has been doing my head in. I'm not getting any voice prompts (not even English) ever since the update to 3.7.7.0....
Also, now there are only 3 app languages available for me in general settings - Hebrew, English and Chinese. It used to show a lot more than that (I use Russian).
Other than that, great job. Loving the new UI.

It is all still there. Just put your car on autopilot and start typing into search box. :lol: Of course now you need two hands and a lot more attention to correct search input and less attention to the road.

I agree. Bad move.

The "Thanks" time still showing incorrectly. IMO it should be 263 seconds instead of 263 minutes. Or better still, should show "4 minutes 23 seconds ago"

Getting crashes all the time in the 3.7.7.0 app version. The crashes while driving seem to occur mainly when I'm stopped (possibly due to the advertisements showing up on the screen?), but I've had it crash on me multiple times while at speed on the highway, too.

Also get crashes (all the time now) when accessing the Settings / About & Notices and the My Waze / Scoreboard and Groups menus.

I've done a complete wipe and reload of my phone and, after re-installing the app, continued to have the same problems.

Phone details:
Motorola Droid Razr HD (Verizon)
Android version 4.1.2

Turn by turn directions are having issues on 3.7.7.0 on VZW Galaxy S4 - sometimes it will speak a partial word or a whole word, but it is not completely speaking full directions.

Waze has developed a stuttering problem and is only speaking partial words or sentences. I have uninstalled/reinstalled to no avail. Also, I did a factory reset lately which did not improve the issue.

Please fix this!
