I'm here to report on loss of TTS on iP5 with latest Apple firmware.

Also experiencing some crashes on startup, as well as general instability / inconsistency with Friends showing up on the main list.

P.S. I sign the petition to undo the phone-number registration for Waze. I assume this was a move dictated by Google to collect user information, but if it can be reversed, do so.

P.P.S. As this is my first time posting, I would like to say that I am glad that Waze has such a dedicated userbase to guide the decisions made by the development team. :mrgreen:

Sounds like Waze has not requested to access your contacts yet. What happens when you tap the Friends icon on the main screen, then tap the Add Friends icon at the top right?


Thanks for the response. When I click My Waze ==> My Friends then click the Add Friends icons at the top right I get the option of My Contacts or Facebook Friends. Tapping My Contacts results in the 'Hold Up...' screen where it directs me to Settings ==> Privacy ==> Contacts. Waze isn't showing up there.

I am encountering problems with the volume of the audio of the application, after the upgrade to version 3.8.0! The volume is too lower even the volume bar, in the application, being on maximum. Thanks.

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.

It seems that the TTS has been fixed, but the app was not updated. Guess the fix was on the server. That's excellent news. Now I get the street names rather than just "TURN LEFT"

However, since 3.8.0 was released, I still notice an issue with not given the turn notice until you are right on top of the turn off. Sometimes I get the audio notice after I make the turn.

The previous version was fine, given ample warning before the turn. Not I get the notice only a few feet away from the turn.

Please fix

I'm noticing a weird truncation of some words in TTS. Such as "Turn lefat xxx St." The first time I heard this, I thought it has said turn right but had the left arrow on the display. So I turned off the radio and AC and listened closely for the second TTS command and I heard "lefat" clearly.

That was it, thanks!

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

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.

No need to time it. I've written this I think 20 times in various threads: You can also adjust the device volume when you activate voice command. (Previously in this thread: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... el#p816615)
