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.

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!


It looks like you are stuck, because the Continue button doesn't do anything when clicked. However, the message is prompting you to enter a new user name. Type your new user name into the empty quote bubble above the Wazer icon, and then click the Continue button.

My friend on his droid is getting the same error message.


This is happening across multiple devices and they hope to have it fixes soon .

I'd like to have the "other sending options" links (email, text) back to the main ETA screen.
I never send ETA to other Wazers, but always by email.
The "other" link is small and nearly invisible, and it's enough free space for the buttons.

In this version, with no warning, it seems that a huge change in privacy occurred for waze on IOS.
When you want to share your position with your family, not only you are now asked to enter and verify your phone number (for what reason if we don't need to), but you NEED to share your contacts... What is the real intent behind that obligation?

Would that be the new Google touch kicking in ? :o

Not acceptable, reversing to 3.7.8 immediately until this is fixed !!
In parallel, searching for alternatives, as I feel now very much uncomfortable with a good product in no so good hands apparently...

I urge anybody to think twice before to share all of this for that purpose...

It's for friend-matching. Put your tinfoil hat away!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
I understand, but if it was only for friend-matching, why then would they ask for sharing all your contacts and make that MANDATORY. If you want to share, fine, if you don't, why take away the function that was working in the 3.7 without sharing it... See my point ? :)

My commute is 70 miles. After the last update (3.8.0) Waze propose me a new itinerary of 77 miles, much longer in time and distance compared to the traditional one. The first time I thought there was slow traffic or an accident on the traditional route, but no.
Now everyday Waze propose me the longest (time and distance) route

Strange 'no TTS audible' drive today:

I checked to make sure sound was on.
I switched to 'recorder' and made sure sound was up.
WHEN I CLOSED 'RECORDER' I HEARD one voice prompt before I re-opened WAZE.
No voice prompts heard after that!!!!!
I tried the 3 finger to open voice commands and checked, volume level was STILL UP.

EDIT: Today, I disabled the 'use buttons to adjust ringer' option and I went to WAZE and turned up the volume and this time I could hear the prompts. Clearly there are some strange interactions taking place.

This version is SO messed up that they either need to immediately issue update fixing this stuff or re-issue the previous version with a new number.

I found this as well. I don't think that changing the "Voice Memo" app volume helped, as indicated above.

The volume bar IN the WAZE app does not seem to effect the speaker volume.
It was ONLY by using the buttons on the side of my iphone to increase the volume that I got sound from my speaker.
In WAZE, those buttons only effect the 'ringer volume' for some strange reason. (someone reported that DURING a WAZE voice announcement, the buttons would work, but how do you time things right to hit those buttons during the announcement?)
I switched to voice memo and turned up the volume using the buttons and that FIXED the speaker volume in WAZE.

try going to the 'voice memo' app and set the volume to max with the buttons.
Close voice memo and try WAZE.
That 'fixed' the volume for me.
