I am sorry ;)

first of, when I take a different route,
the recalculating pop-up remains (even after finding another route) so I have to press the back button.
Als when notifying roadblocks etc, the send pop-up remains.
Here the message that thanks you for adding it (that comes over the ETA) remains (dont know how to delete that)

also when asking for different routes + clicking on the map version = closing of the app


Yep, that is a known issue, it happens to everyone. Waze is no longer developing the app so it likely will never get fixed. At least it is only an annoying bug, and does not cause crashing or anything like that.

I really want to use the app but if it's not being supported or updated, I see no point. Please reconsider supporting WP8.


It wasn't even a year. First public version came out in November 2013, with a patch a few weeks after that to address some battery drain and performance issues, then that was it. It hasn't had any updates or fixes in a year now.

I have looked, re-read and refreshed Windows Store and what I am seeing is my current version which is 3.7.4.5.

I am not sure if this has been posted/answered by anyone else, but does the WP8.1 version of Waze really not auto-rotating? I have tried reconfiguring its settings, but it does not seem to change the screen orientation to landscape.


The one version in the store is the correct one and the latest one, I'm not sure the number off hand, but it wouldn't surprise me if it didn't match the thread title.

There is no landscape mode. The beta versions had it, but it was buggy and not ready for release, so when the public version came out it was scrapped with a promise to return in the future. That was in 2013.

Good Night,
The following issues exist when using the version of Waze for Windows Phone

1 - When searching for gas stations on the route, does not appear as the price of Android, this hinders the use of this functionality

2 - When doing any action, or recalculate the route in 3D mode, the mode of loading is forever and not go out, you need to return, saying he does not want to close the program to modal out

3 - When sending the route to a friend, there is only 2 options, sms or email, it is not possible to send the route to other applications like for example Whats app


1- I'm going to have to try and play around with it, I don't use the gas feature much, so I haven't noticed that.

2 - That is normal, it is a known issue, but is not likely to be fixed anytime soon. At least it can be cleared out by pressing the back button.

3 - Right, they didn't get that far in development. A copy to clipboard function would have been nice so you put link it anywhere.

2 - Hmm .. It is a known problem? Can I help solve? I am a developer .. I already identified that the problem does not happen when you remove all the optional view as traffic line, see other wazers, view radar, etc .. Must be something in any of these optional views ..

3 - I really like Windows Phone, I believe he should have the same facilities as the Android ..

Thank U


Nothing you can do. The Waze team is no longer developing the Windows version, so what you see is what you get.

Enlighten me please :). If there's a good alternative for waze on WP i'd be glad to give it a try.

If your WinPho is a Nokia, the HERE Maps app is fantastic. It doesn't have all the social stuff like police reporting, but in terms of navigation/GPS it is great.

Yea it doesn't matter that the Android/iOS versions can be easily ported, if Google doesn't want too then they won't do it.

The short version is that Waze retired the old voices to save money (they were paying royalties), and switched to a voice that Google owns, but in the process obviously never tested to see it worked with Windows Phone, and of course it doesn't.

Presently your options are to use Waze without any voice, or switch to something that actually works like Here Maps.

My favorite features of Android are terrible battery life, sluggishness, and constant lockups and rebooting :)

Apparently some Android APK files can be sideloaded to run on Windows 10 Mobile, it would be interesting to see if that works with Waze (it works with some other apps including Google's My Tracks). That might make it possible to have a version of Waze that is still supported and actually has working voices.
