Yes, can confirm that after the upgrade my UK voices now do not read out street names. Initially Daniel lost TTS but Serena still could, after a reinstall they now both do not read out street names.

There were issues during testing with TTS they hoped to have solved before release. It would appear that not all the bugs were ironed out. It's gotten better, but this version does request significantly more data from the TTS servers, and that could be part of the problem.

TTS files are downloaded late/slowly due to an issue which remains, but over time, you will find that the TTS cache of commands will build up and street names will become more regular.

I think this has been around a good while. The workaround is to tap the screen, tap the north-up button, then tap the target button (follow me on map).

  • The volume control buttons change the Ringer volume and not the app volume. I had to switch to a different app to change the volume and then go back to Waze

This has been an issue for quite some time, asked many times and answered just as often. Because Waze doesn't have a constantly open audio channel, the volume buttons when Waze isn't playing a sound, adjust the ringer volume and not the output volume which Waze will use. This is kind of by design of Waze and iOS, but it is annoying.

You can change the output volume with the hardware buttons when a sound is playing or when you activate voice commands and the "listening" prompt is on the screen.

Tap the "more sending options" link (or something like that) and you can send it as a text or email, etc.

I don't have my number entered in the app and can send:

1. Navigate
2. Tap Go
3. Main menu->Share Drive
4. Tap "More sending options" link
5. Tap Text, Email, Copy link ; whichever you want.

Does Waze not show that for you too?

Weird. Maybe because I had entered my number previously during testing and now because it is in my account on the server side, this feature is "unlocked." That is unfortunate.

Favorites on iOS have always been able to be reordered manually. I agree that another sorting order would be nice to apply, like age/last use or alphabetical. We've had that feature request in for a real long time.

Yes. Confirmed!!!

Noted multiple times in the thread, that TTS and 3.8 are still buggy. Please read my post(s) earlier in this thread about it. Other users are finding it works better as time goes on.

bz2012 wrote:Often the verbal cue is too early.
It says things like
"turn right then turn left".
The only problem is that the left is 3 blocks away but it sounds like the left is immediately after the right.

Totally agree. I registered the same complaint during beta testing. The "and then" functionality was better before IMO, but even then still needed a lot of work.
bz2012 wrote:Then sometimes the cue is late like a 'keep left' on the expressway, only given AT the point where you must keep left. No verbal cue before and nothing from the sign.

This is odd. Only thing I can think is that the TTS bugs are preventing Waze from saying anything at all.

bz2012 wrote:Three blocks before a right turn onto an entrance ramp to the expressway:
"Exit"
No clue as to when or where or why.
At the ramp it said "Exit right".
Again no clue as to where or why.

This could be an artifact of another bug introduced in the very last beta version that was released. In that version, they removed the names of unnamed segments from the display and TTS started saying "turn right on" instead of "turn right." I wonder if unnamed segments of ramps which we have long-relied on for pulling the name of the next named segment, is also failing now. Or it could just be the "regular" TTS bugs. (FYI, the last beta version also became the official 3.8 version. They released it without fixing bugs reported by users the day the beta was released.)

Jpere wrote:Buggy update. TTS telling me to exit in 4.3 miles.

Hundreds of users over the years have asked for much more advance notice of turns, such as just after the previous turn, Waze will now announce the next turn right away. 4.3 miles seems to be some magical number. It's close to 7km, whatever that means. :) But I believe that distances over 4.3 miles are supposed to say the time to the next turn instead of distance. However, with the TTS bugs, it isn't able to download the time-based announcement and ends up defaulting to the 4.3 miles distance. This was experienced and I think reported during the beta cycle.
