Waze has never been anything other than social. Requiring a login for friending purposes shouldn't come as a surprise and isp verification is the most universal method available.

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!

I can not login It recursively wants that I login and doesn't take my pre name and sure name. When I want to go back to the main screen I end up with the "update your wazer" message. So I can't use the App anymore (iPhone4S iOS 7.1.1) with my account, only with a random wazer.

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!

Other things I tried:
- Change username - not possible. Neither in app nor on website.
- Change Emailadress - not working in app, nor mobile chrome, nor OSX chrome. But worked after second time in Mobile safari.
- Change password - worked in mobile safari.

Nothing helped me out.

Very sad! It was such a good app. I'll try to go back to V3.7.8 if I can handle this. Found a tutorial.

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.

Sorry, this is not working! Every Username I try is not accepted, even random nonsense names. Also when I fill in again the suggested username it is not accepted. Only if I click continue twice without changing the username, I get the ups Message and end at the profile page as described before.

So finally I installed the old app, then changed the nickname to the username and then installed the new app again. First everything looked good, 'till I entered my phone number. From that on I had the same problem with waze not verifying my account.
So I have to use the old app and hope for an update comming soon. I really would like to add friends without Facebook!

Just a question: Why didn't they add Google login too, if there is already one from Facebook? Would be more convenient for many users I guess. I thought that would happen after the takeover by google.

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.

Features which are confusing in this version -- new phone / facebook share the drive connection and my audio is way too quiet.

- for the first one - would be nice to share over text easier (like in previous versions)
- for the second - would be amazing to get the volume UP!

Thanks
