There is a bug on hidden mode. Closing Waze on hidden mode should clear off the hidden state in next start, however the hidden mood display on the left menu when Waze relaunched but the 'go invisible' on "My Waze" shown otherwise

I'm also having this issue. When receiving the "Update Your Wazer" (which I used to have a specific Wazer I used) and clicking on "Continue", nothing happens. It just sits there. Dropping out of the app and going back in just gets you back to the "Update Your Wazer" popup.

I've tried that already, along with a complete re-install - TTS is still broken.

Some of the members in our community has noticed that they lost the TTS voices in the selection using iOs. Curious if anyone who has upgraded has experienced this :?:


I'm using the iOS version and found that it reads out some street names but not all of them.
On one road with multiple roundabouts it said "At the roundabout take the second exit, at the roundabout turn left". The turn left is for the roundabout after the one I was just approaching. (That is, I should be going straight ahead at the first roundabout and left at the following roundabout). This could be rather confusing if I didn't know where I was going…

Cheers

Absolutely Right! And When I try to continue this Dialog I get an Uups Message and end up with the Profile screen but without First and Second Name, altough I filled them at a Dialog before. Getting back brings again the "Update your wazer". Only Way Out is to switch to a random wazer. Then I'm not logged in but have ALL favorites and settings!! Shouldn't be so I think!

I suspect that your problem is not with missing TTS voices. It is probably due how the new client announces instructions via TTS. Despite feedback during Beta, we were told this was "working as designed". Now, it seems that it isn't "working as designed" and will be reverted within a couple of months. More info here.

In order to complete the social setup I am required to navigate to my iPhone settings => Privacy => Contacts and make sure Waze is allowed to access my contacts. Waze is not showing up there and I'm unable to complete the social set up so I can share my drive. Anyone else having this problem? I'm running iOS 7.1.1 and Waze 3.8.0.

Both of these might be hurting your case, actually.

Something is definitely wrong with the TTS server or the way the app connects to it. It works only occasionally; seems like it's better some times of the day and worse other times. But every time it DOES work, it saves the speech file to your cache, so if you take that road again you'll hear it again. So clearing your cache and reinstalling can actually hurt your case. And using it for a week without clearing your cache will make it at least halfway usable.

The server problem should only affect getting street names; Waze TTS voices include a big set of fallback phrases (like "turn left" alone) for when the download doesn't work.

Yes, I've found that too. Yesterday after I did the update, the Daniel voice wasn't getting street names, but swapping to Serena got the names without a problem. After reinstalling both of them now don't get any street names.

Same here. I uninstalled & reinstalled, and I'm still stuck on "Update your Wazer".
