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?

Day/night mode broken in Australia

Postby cantanga » Mon Jan 27, 2014 7:30 am

It seems there are a number of users over a variety of phones who have issues with the Auto day/night mode. It switches fine in the evening but in the morning it won't switch until about 10:30am even though the sun is up at about 6am.
There is a thread here I started to see if it is happening to anyone else or just me and it seems it is occurring to a number of others as well.

Waze on Nexus 5 not working

Postby wiredNL » 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.

Re: Android v3.7.7.0 Official Feedback Thread - sound broken

I have Waze from Dec 11, 2013 which was running great on my Verizon Droid Maxx phone - until I got the KitKat4.4 upgrade pushed to me. Now the audio does not work / is missing words.

I suggest trying to uncheck "Play sound to phone speaker" again. This is what worked for me. I'm also on Verizon Droid Maxx (XT1080M) with KitKat4.4.

Jan28 update - still broken. Checking/unchecking the "play sound to phone speaker" doesn't work. If I have it checked, I get the missing words/broken sentences from phone speaker. If I have it un-checked, it does not work with the phone speaker, but if I am on a phone call with bluetooth audio active - I will hear the full instructions just fine on the bluetooth device (carkit or earpiece). Seems like we need an app update.

3.After Waze GPS load click on the waze icon at the left side.
4.Select "Navegar". (Navigate)
5.Set a location for "Casa" and "Trabalho". (Home and Work)
6.Go to the idle screen and add waze GPS widget4x1 to the idle screen.
7.After add the widget press the refresh Button.

Sound to Speaker not working after Android 4.3

Postby shortmancom » Fri Jan 31, 2014 2:11 am

Sound to speaker is not working properly, verbal directions are truncated and useless. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the Waze App and tried changing to different voice. Tom is my preferred voice. Please fix this. Directions over bluetooth isn't a reasonable option for me because I prefer to use my sound system for radio and I can't have both radio and bluetooth simultaneously.

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