Waze is indirectly encouraging you to move on to Android or iOS :lol:

Anyone else using it on WIndows Phone 8.1 yet?
I updated recently and I've been getting problems with data connectivity, resolved by turning my phone on and off again but a bit annoying.
I'm on an HTC 8X and I was wondering if anyone else experienced similar?

Cheers!

Yep same sort of issue, however I've been resolving it by exiting out of the app, turning flight mode on and off then starting the app again on a Lumia 1020.[/quote]

I've noticed that I don't actually have to exit the app to do that, you can drag down from the top to open the notification screen and do it from there then slide it back up and bingo!

Just to bring everybody up to date who wants to post answers in the future.
Issues we were already talking about some pages ago:
No landscape mode
No Facebook integration
No groups integration (replaced right now by football teams)
High Battery consumption
No possibility of gas price updating

Furthermore, I recommend to post feature suggestions in the UserVoice-Forum since the Waze staff is not really reading this forum.

I'm missing a feature that allow me to record incidents of any kind later on the map.


That issue has already been discussed here. As you can see the suggestion has been declined by the Waze staff to prevent people from spamming the map.

Greetings,
Vatbub


This is useful I didn't know of it's existence!

Just moved from iOS to Windows Phone. Feature I miss the most is the "share my drive" option where I can send a message with a link to my route and ETA.

I do have a Nokia (Lumia 930) and I tried that app. It seems to lack a dynamic rerouting option that guides me around traffic jams as they happen, like waze does. Quite an essential feature for my 100km commute with a dozen alternatives for the main route.

I'm on v3.7.4.5 on Windows 8.1 (HTC8X) and I can get to the share option:
- Menu > Send > Share Drive
- Send by Message or Send by email

There is another related section:
- Menu > Send > Send a Location
The options here are
- My current location
- My Destination (this is what I have selected)
- My Saved Locations
- Recently Searched

Thanks, I completely overlooked that :shock:

I gave it a try. As far as I can see, only messages from friends cannot be opened. Messages from the waze team open just fine. Perhaps it has something to do with the waze for WP app lacking most of the friends-related functions.
