Yesterday again, Samantha vanished and i got routing w/o street names. Then during the drive I got a couple of "... a left on <streetname>" where the beginning was clipped off, then I got full directions for the rest of the drive.

I'm guessing that there are connectivity issues with the server that's doing Samantha, or problems with the server itself, since a number of people seem to be reporting issues in the last few days.

I've had Waze share GPS with other apps fine. Waze is much more sensitive than any other app in the sense that it will lose GPS or network connection while all other apps are working fine.

Yesterday in my morning drive, I started off with Samantha giving directions, then partway through the drive Samantha went away and I got the non-TTS instructions. Yesterday afternoon Samantha returned, and has been working fine for me today.

I had no trouble with cell connection during the time, but there could have been issues connecting to whatever server supplies the TTS.

Today, I was exiting the highway going home, and when I was at the top of the ramp waiting for the light, it still showed me as being on the highway, but at the location of the bridge, thus it had recalculated my route as if I had continued on the highway. When the light turned and I proceeded across the bridge and the rest of the way home, the app never recalculated instead showing "drive to the indicated route." Now for just going home, this isn't too big a deal, but of course, the ETA is waxed if I was going to pick someone up (this time it occurred close to home, but a previous time, it lost the route as I was just starting), and of course I might need this to navigate somewhere I'm unfamiliar with, and it's unsafe to try and re-engage and/or re-share the navigation once I've begun moving. I may not be where I can stop and re-engage and re-share everything.


This sure sounds like Waze is losing contact with the GPS, and is now relying on the cell information for approximate location.

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.

Just adding to the list of issues concerning the navigation speaking sounds which are truncated or non-existent...

Samsung Galaxy S3
Android version 4.3
Waze version 3.7.7

Regardless of language pack chosen, the navigation speaking sounds are truncated unless I am also using using the phone during a phone call at which point the navigation speaking sounds are fine.

Waze does not appear in the "Complete action using" list for some actions.

I've noticed this specifically when choosing the "Navigate" option after tapping on a pin in Google Maps Engine. My phone prompts to use Google Maps or Wisepilot for navigation, but not Waze.

In other scenarios, such as selecting a contact's address, Waze does appear as expected.

Same for me since the last update - voice guidance files never downloaded on Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.

Three issues.

First when connecting to Twitter, after I click authorize app, and Twitter says it's redirecting me back to the application, all I get is this and it never connects/does anything else.

Image

Next is when browsing/adding groups. I constantly see this screen, and cannot view any group details.

Image

Occasionally the listing of groups will load, but if I try to add one I receive the following error. I am signed in.

Image


I experience these issues on both my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 running Android 4.4.2

EDIT: I was able to join a group by changing the orientation of the phone rapidly, forcing the page to reload until it worked.

There should be a gear icon and on the screen when you click on left bottom for the "Menu". Next to it is the sound options. There are 3 options: Off, Alerts only, On. Try that.



Thanks! I will try that too. I missed that one.
