Correct, that is how I did it. It is the link between your Waze and Facebook accounts that need to be set.


Is there something wrong with Waze? Connected my FB account on Waze Android , and can't see any info on scoreboard on friends tab of both Waze Windows Phone and Android.

Thank you for the update of WIndows Phone - it is an improvement especially for the battery performance (however it still costs battery during driving and charging but less now).

When reporting a traffic jam or danger, it takes a long time for the various screens for further details to appear. Something goes very slow there, even when I recently had restarted the phone before using it.

Also I have a message 'Downloading new voices...' that stays at 0% all the time and which disappears after about 10 minutes - clicking on 'okay' to dismiss the 'download didn't succeed' message also takes a long while, probably linked to the issue I mentioned above.

Lumia Icon (AKA 929) on VZW - Biggest annoyance is no option to play voice guidance through Bluetooth to GMC Acadia. Also find that it freaks out and places me on other roads while in parking lots, therefore it can't tell me where to go from where I am at.

I've been playing around with v3.7.4.5 more. I found that using the screen in night mode reduces power consumption drastically, by nearly 50%.

On my Nokia Lumia 820, my usual morning drive to the office (around 35 mins) now only draws about 10% of the battery's power (with a 2G connection and screen in night mode). The same drive with the daylight screen mode draws approx. 20% of power. With the old sw v3.7.3.208 this drew approx. 35% of battery power in daylight mode. Quite a big improvement!

The visibility of the screen in night mode is still ok, it just has a dark background instead of a white one. With these settings I can finally use Waze for longer trips, without a charger.

This isn't an issue with Waze but your car. Not all the radios on the Acadia support that functionality. I have the same issue with Waze not being able to broadcast audio over bluetooth in my GMC Canyon, but on my motorcycle it can and it works great.

Waze only starts first time after installation on Nokia Lumia 625. After closing it(going back to homescreen) next time you try to start the app begins startup sequence but crashes before you can see the navigation view. Restart of phone dosen't help. Closing app with "back arrow" gives same resultat. Uninstalling and reinstalling Waze helps first time the app starts but then it's the same again.

Hi guys,

The app crashes on me quite frequently on my Lumia 810. For me the problem occurs most frequently when I start from HERE Maps and then choose to Drive and pick "Waze" from the list. Yesterday it happened every single time. Waze would load and quit just before it displayed a route and a prompt to Start navigation. The only workaround was to quit Waze properly, then pick my destination within the Waze Navigation menu instead.

Restarting the phone didn't help me either.

Thanks

I disagree. Every other app can play on my Parrot Bluetooth receiver, but Waze doesn't.
