With the 3.8.0 release for IOS, the sound no longer goes to my iphone 5 speaker. I have play sound to phone speaker on, bluetooth turned off, and App volume all the way up.

And there's the problem I have with it. They do not need my number even though they already have it (there was a time when I was uploading contacts but I stopped; they still have the data).

Google has struck. HARD. I will not support any action that proselytizes -- which this does. That's evil. I use the send ETA function quite a bit and this version killed it.

I have to say thank you very much for the new "fun" of turning off auto update so I can prevent this version from being installed. I'm grateful I had a backup on my Mac that I could restore the old app without even restoring my phone. And when you decide to stop supporting the prior version (server reject), I'll sadly say goodbye to my favorite app.

Since the update Favorites don't appear in searches anymore. So I figured I would start going through the list itself. I manually reordered my favorires in alphabetical order to easily find entries but twice now the list reverted to its original order. Any known fix to either of these issues?

This is a long time known issue.
It's a back end-server side-thing...
Sometimes it appears... You can't do anything against it...
I haven't seen it for a while now...

This morning I was getting gas and tried to update gas prices but I was told I was a baby wazer and not allowed to update gas prices yet. I've been updating gas prices regularly for some time now and this is the first time I've seen this message. Anybody else having this problem?

Is that the experience of other users? Because this is basically useless.

I can't confirm that. Sharing often my trips. And receiving others. I had it work like 1 time not, but 12 times with out any problems...

I read through the first 17 pages of this thread and while a lot of people are talking about the contact list stuff, I didn't see anything about actual drive sharing.

Does it work? Has it ever worked?

I have tried repeatedly this week to share my drive with a friend, or have them share theirs with me. ONE time, I was able to see them in real time on the map, with their route displayed and their place on it. Even then, when they had to deviate from the route, the map lost them entirely, not displaying their icon anywhere on it at all.

Every other time, I'm only shown a pin at their destination, not their route or their realtime location on the map, even though they chose to "share their drive" with me. I mean, it's worked maybe 1 time out of 12.

Is that the experience of other users? Because this is basically useless.

That suggests they have your registered number in their contacts and waze has suggested you add them as friends as a result.

For those complaining about SMS from third part server/phone number when sharing drive or location IT IS possible to still send via email or regular message app. You have to click the small print "More sending options" below the new "TAP A PHOTO" thing.

I would like to state that this should be cleaned up and improved though. It should be possible to choose sending method easier and have that choice saved for easy, regular access.

I also want to add that on my SNED LOCATION screen I always have a couple of unknown waze users showing as default as if I have used them before, but I have not. Again, this screen needs some improvement.
