When first loading new version I had to use my user name verses nickname, other than that there were no issues.
Yesterday morning navigational route gave no street names (using Samantha USA)
Yesterday evening navigational route gave one street name, same route as above in reverse.
This morning received 3 street names on same route as above.
Appears they are slowly filling up the cache.

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…

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.


delete the app and then use itunes to revert back to version 3.7.8 until developers figure out what went wrong with this update. and turn off automatic updates.

turboluis: Stop spamming this thread. You are taking up valuable space from people who have useful feedback.

This thread exists so developers can "figure out what went wrong". If you really want them to do that, you'll let them do their job. This is your warning.

you need to look up the definition of of the word "spamming", so far i am the only that has offered any useful advice. now that i reverted to the previous version, my problem has been solved. i don't see any one else making the same claim. and as for the developers, it is clear that they never read these forums or interact with users. every problem i have ever had, i had to fix on my own because no one on these forums was capable of helping.

Posting it once is enough. The thread isn't going anywhere.

This is a feedback thread, not an advice thread. There's nothing wrong with giving a little helpful advice, but that is not the primary purpose of this thread.

"spam [v.] 3. post unwanted electronic messages: to post a message many times to a newsgroup, or an inappropriate message to multiple newsgroups"

There are some of us that want to be a part of the solution to the issues on the new version, your advise is for those that chose to opt out of the continued discussion of the implementation and only needed to be posted once on this thread.
Please be considerate of the others.

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've noticed a bug in this version, and the previous version, maybe before that even.

1: go to navigate, search for a location/address/contact
2: select the result
3: it brings up a map of the address, hit go
4: you can now accept the default route, or select the 'routes' button to view alternative routes
5: hit the 'map' button to view the routes on a map, go back to the 'list' view and select your route

You have now lost the ability to snap to your location and have waze update the map with your position during the drive.

Here are some things I have noticed.
  • 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
  • There are more voice language options (at least more than I remember). It would be nice to hear a sample of the voice when you select it. Perhaps a "Test Voice" button?
  • I've tried adding my wife as a contact and it doesn't seem to take. She is not a Wazer, but I like to send her my destination information anyways (anywaze? ;) ). I don't see her pretty face in the "Tap a Photo to Add a Friend" tray even though I've added her before.

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).
