On wifi.
Still No voice.
Downloads voices on wifi (apart from Terminator - sticks at 0%), but regardless of what other voice is selected, nothing.

Windows version is dog muck.

THANKS GOOGLE.

I might just get a cheap android basher as I'm doing a lot of miles and it's saved me hours in the past.


Tom's and Kate's voices were permanently retired from the app globally. Nothing to do with phone OS or Waze version. Got the info from Waze news feed.


Why did reinstalling the app last week still offer these as choices? I can't get ANY of the UK voices to work. Whole drive has silent direction.

OK so while your post is on screen, I've (on wifi) uninstalled Waze.
Reinstalled Waze.
Started it.
Waited.
Downloading Languages (completed)
Installing Languages (completed)

Checked default Language: English (UK)
Checked default Voice : English (UK) (Kate)

As I hear she's recently retired, I pressed the name to select another voice. Choices are:

English (UK) (Kate)
English (UK) (Thomas)
English (US) (Jane)

I heard Thomas took the redundancy package too, it doesn't leave the UK much choice.
Not wanting a US voice, I clicked Language: English (UK) and was offered the international list.

Picked English (UK).

Popup box says

"Language: English (UK)
Voice: English (UK) (Simon)"
OK

Settings, All, General :
Language: English (UK)
Navigation Guidance: English (UK) (Kate)

No Simon.

Choices are:

English (UK) (Kate)
English (UK) (Thomas)
English (US) (Jane)

Restarted app and phone.

App still has Kate there. Cannot get rid of her. I guess this is why it's silent?

I also borrowed my son's old puny Android handset and installed Waze on it this week.

Works like a charm of course.

Default voice?

English (UK) (Kate).

I guess she didn't get that email.

That is good news. Any idea when the new version for WP will be released?


I second the question. Waze is ABSOLUTELY my most used app but since it's release for Windows Phone there have been 2 updates for Andriod and we've seen nothing...

Any word on feature parity for things like Gas pricing or Friends support, etc?

I have the same problem on my Lumia 630 (WP 8.1):
* Voices can't be downloaded.
* Recalculation layer doesn't dissapear.
* Can't report a problem on the road.

Restarting my phone didn't solve the problem :cry:

Here's my list of things on my Lumia 928:

    At first GPS was fine but the more I use it, the more Waze gets completely lost. I don't have this issue in Here Drive+. I'm constantly getting "GPS signal not available". Restart does not fix it.
    The battery gets sucked dry faster than my Droid X did under google maps, and that's saying something!
    It doesn't appear that you can delete a favorite.
    The look and feel isn't consistent. There was too much effort to keep the UI the same instead of using the device's UI. So while the map screen is fine, other screens are hard to read (i.e. reading the text while driving of the alerts when you try and flag one is almost impossible because it's white on light blue and too small). And just as bad, the preferences have this weird white box behind them instead of some sort of consistent layout. I know that that blue is the waze color, but it really should just use the system defaults including font sizing etc. I classify this as a bug because it really makes the app difficult to use and look amateurish when it doesn't need to be.


Wish List:
    Integrate with my Passport Radar detector's Bluetooth support and let me mark cops and false positives and have it update Waze as a result. This would be killer, especially if it used statistical data to mark the false positives and mute my radar detector!!!!

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!


Lumia 630 (dual sim), I had that issue once... restart did the trick

I've had an issue that when I check for other routes, it automatically closed Waze (time after time)
(but I can't reproduce that anymore after restart)

once again, same bug, but not able to get rid of it.

While driving, I checked other routes... it crashes, and when you open Waze again, it closes.
Restart phone doesnt work.. Had to remove battery :(

Dont have time to check the entire thread... so if I put something here thats already been mentioned.
I am sorry ;)

first of, when I take a different route,
the recalculating pop-up remains (even after finding another route) so I have to press the back button.
Als when notifying roadblocks etc, the send pop-up remains.
Here the message that thanks you for adding it (that comes over the ETA) remains (dont know how to delete that)

also when asking for different routes + clicking on the map version = closing of the app

Great to have Waze on my Nokia next to Drive+. It is defenitely better in jams. However, my L920 experiences a battery drain when using the app. It's a GPS issue and whilst I already have all energy saving options applied, driving with the charger on my battery is losing power as some-one else mentioned as well. Please look at the energy consumption of the app. Thank you!
