Using a S4 with 4.3. Vocal directions work when using just the phone, when using with BT in my car (VW branded radio) only half sentences. If I use it on my Bike with Scala G4 no sound at all (calls and sms notifications work)

I think I found the problem with the Scala. I have one of those "Smart" covers for the phone. If you close the flap it switches off the screen. I had 2 drive sessions on the bike where I left the cover open and BT works perfectly

Waze on Nexus 5 not working

Postby hoompey » Tue Jan 28, 2014 7:51 am

I just installed Waze on my new Nexus 5, and it does not work at all. At install, it says it can't access my location (tried it with Wifi, 4G and 3G) and the map looks like the attached screenshot.
Any ideas on how to solve this? I have no issues with Google Maps.

Really frustrated with voice control...

Postby humptydank » Fri Jan 24, 2014 5:49 pm

This has been going on for so long -- why can my Samsung Galaxy S2 perfectly transcribe dictated texts at highway speed, voice commands to navigate my device, and even spoken addresses in Waze navigation search at highway speed, but can't consistently recognize the few commands involved in voice control?

I get perhaps a ten percent success rate, if that, and that's been true since I downloaded it over a year ago. Most of the time it's just "One more time?" and "I didn't understand you."

I've seen other discussions among Android users about this and keep hoping it's going to be sorted with each new update, but it hasn't been. Why can Waze understand spoken addresses but not the 55 words involved in voice commands?

When I try to send an ETA from Waze via Hangouts, I just get this screen with a spinning icon, no text or link. I can type in the bar at the top bit it doesn't do anything. Is this something with the app pointing to the right features in Hangouts, or is this a Hangouts specific problem?


I came here to post this same thing. I have a Nexus 4 running Android 4.4.2, and if I want to share my ETA, it just freezes. In fact, the only way I seem to be able to share my ETA is via email.

In my case on a Nexus 4, Android 4.4.2 the end of the navigation prompts are cut off.

Hello there,
Support for the multi-screen feature on Android devices would be nice, also would be nice if the app remembered my choice to remain invisible so i don't have to choose this each time I use the app.

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.
