I have the volume all the way down and the "play sound to phone speaker" switched to off.

Using a Moto X with Android 4.4.2.

I like using waze on my commute every day. I used to listen to Audiobooks while using Waze. I have the sound for Waze turned off but I still get pauses in my Audiobook when the turn directions come up. It also happens when listening to Google music or Podcasts. It is really annoying. Bad enough that I have not been using Waze on my commute.

Just wanted to mention this. Didn't see it in the thread already. Sorry if I missed it.

I have same problem with the "searching network" on my S3. I see that i'm connected as other apps use the connection, but Waze app is not. Also today, i took one route which i have never driven with Waze before, and when i turned at home and actually seen, that this route is not on web, i was disappointed... Even when i was at home, still running the Waze app and the phone was connected thru WiFi, it shown "searching network".

Can you please FIX this issue? The only solution for now is to turn off and on again the app, but sorry, i don't have much time to do this 5 times in hour when i'm driving. Other app are not experiencing this type of problems.

And one more request: Can you please add navigation to coordinates or by selecting the exact place on map? I don't know the address all the time, but i know, where is it on the map... And this will be very helpful.

I've been seeing a lot of the error message "Failed to Communicate with Routing Server" with the new version. Navigation works only about half the time. Typically the error message happens at about 5:00 PM EST.

I'm having this same problem - been happening for a while.

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


I absolutely agree with this....it appears that many of the most useful features of Waze have been left by the wayside in favor of menu oversimplification. I'm not sure what drove these changes, but I doubt the "power" users were consulted. As a "Royalty Wazer" with over 100K points, I certainly feel that we have lost a very large part of what made Waze the great nav program that it was. Now it appears to be just another social program with nav thrown in for good measure. I wonder if this was Google's contribution to the fray?!?

Oh well, time to start looking for a new, real navigation program....

The characters for Central European encoding on menus aren't displayed correctly on Android 4.0.3.

Already posted on the new version forum (Android 3.7.8), because the problem remains.

Although in the meanwhile my MOTO X Android version went from 4.4.1 to 4.4.2 + Waze went from 3.7.7 to 3.7.8, I still get no voice instructions OR if it is long enough, the final syllables.

Curious : Users who were having this issue on 3.7.7 version had it fixed once they upgraded to 3.7.8 ?

Thanks,

I have to set this option because im always on bluetooth and my phone connects to my car audio system. But i use this for phone calls purpose only and my car audio player is always on Radio function. Therefore without this option, i wont be able to hear any navigation sound.

It use to work before this.

I am using Xperia Z1 C6903 with official Sony firmware on stock 4.3 JellyBean Android.

Any idea on this issue? I even checked with another user who is using Nexus 5, and same issue when Play sound to phone speaker is selected.


Same issue. Voice is gone, and in some rare ocasions you can hears the last syllabes of the word.
It happens either on car BT or phone speaker.

It was working fine ; Not sure, but I am guessing it was the upg to 4.4.

I have an old tablet, that has this WAZE version, but Android 4.0, performed a test, and it worked fine - voice comands were OK, apparently.

Brazilian Portuguese here, the same issue.

I tried to uninstall-install due to the voice commands gone silent (and it did not work ...),
connected with the same account, but now I have 0 points.
