Login with username/password does not work. When you login, and then exit the app waze forgets your account! Don't know if it's for every language but it fails for both english and dutch.

Having a call registry clash while calling out and using Waze.

I'm using Samsung Note 2 Android ver 4.1.2. Sometimes during call-out, when I experience bad telco coverage and the line dropped, I found my phone hangs and call-in or call-out is no longer possible. During this period when I call out, I will hear the sound of my surrounding where my phone speaker is producing the sound picked up from my surroundings. Even if I do manage to call out, I will near no voice from my call receiver(totally silent) while my receiver can hear me. This phenomenon can only be cured by either re-starting my phone OR Waze, which is freaky enough. Of course restarting Waze will be a better choice as it's faster and I will gain the navigation back promptly. I wonder if there's a bug in Waze where it will make the call registry clash under the situation as described?

Found out that a rooted Android version will cause many unpredictable bugs like what I've mentioned above, a call failure with no sound when Waze is being turn on. The problem has vanished and never seem to re-occur after I've done a clean update at a Samsung Premium Customer Service Centre. The previous rooted version was being installed by an authorised Samsung Service Centre which operates not according to Samsung standard procedure. Thus as a conclusion, to avoid many unexpected issue, NEVER EVER USE A ROOTED ANDROID VERSION TO RUN WAZE unless you are prepared to face the bugs and problems associated with it.

I'm currently on a Samsung Note 3. The last few days, about a week or so, I've had trouble with Waze keeping in touch with GPS. Some of the time, I know it's not Waze's issue, as I see the GPS icon blinking, showing it's searching for GPS. But quite often, the GPS Icon shows it's still connected, but Waze shows the litle red icon showing "no gps", and it fails to guide me. As much as I LOVE Waze and Love the concept of crowd-sourcing, I've had to return occasionally to Google Maps, as I get no result from Waze.

While I've not tested this yet, could it be an issue where Waze can't share the GPS with another app? I also have a mileage tracker app that I run at the same time sometimes. I haven't been able to tell if the disconnect happens more often when I'm running both apps yet, but I'll do some research on that. Is that a possibility?

Thanks!

Waze gives the same message when there is no GPS at all, or when the GPS signal has an error bigger than a certain value. I've seen on my logs at least 1Km, but I'm sure it's less. So if your device has bad coverage, other apps will still show your approximate coordinates and a huge circle representing the error (assuming it's similar to iOS and even the Google Maps for iOS), whilst Waze will simply ignore those big-error coordinate device information samples.

The screen won't orient correctly if my phone is upside down. This is on a samsung galaxy s4.

My charge port is on the bottom of the phone which means I need to flip the phone upside down to be able to plug the charger in.

Bug: Waze interupts music even when set to "Sounds Off"

Postby dougk49 » Sat Feb 01, 2014 7:23 pm

If I use my phone to play music in the background while using Waze I set "Sounds Off" in the Waze app. Whenever an alert pops up in Waze, the music is muted for several seconds even though "Sounds Off" is set in Waze. If Waze is muted, it should not mute other media sounds when showing alerts.

Bug: Hazards still popup even if hazards display is disabled

Postby dougk49 » Sat Feb 01, 2014 7:26 pm

In display settings there is an option to not show certain things on the map. If I disable hazards, they no longer show on the map, but I still get a popup notice when I approach the hazard which is even more invasive and not desirable.

App icon not visible is notification area (Android HTC One M

Postby dougk49 » Sat Feb 01, 2014 8:50 pm

The Waze app icon is not visible in the notification area when running the background on my Android HTC One M7. I'm running an HTC One M7 with Android 4.4 stock firmware, HTC Sense 5.5. There is no Waze icon in the notification area on this device. Other apps, such as Google maps does have an icon and notification that works for me when running in the background.

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.
