Waze 3.7.4.5 WP 8.1 Update 1 Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE EU:
When you install the app first time you have to accept the terms and conditions but it's pretty hard if you cannot scroll down to be able to click on the buttons at the bottom because the buttons are hidden by the WP built in button bar... nice UI from Waze. See the attachment.

Is it already resolved in newer versions? Unfortunately there is no newer version available right now in the store of my country.

Thanks,

It definitely works better than the Android version, also faster, and a better UI.

WAZE team, please do not abandon your old time loyal users - it can not be that hard to support an app without adding new features. The one running on 8.1 is OK though looks dated, it is still the 1st choise here in Israel and in many other places. Please fix necessary APIs so that it continues running on WM10 phones - even if Win Phones share is small if you consider tablets the market is decent and growing.


Waze still works on Windows 10, I've had the issue you have before. I suspect that the issue is map database corruption. The only way I've found to fix it is to uninstall the app, reboot the phone, and then reinstall it.

I´ve been using Waze for 3 years now. First WP, then Android, now WP again.
Or more like: I would like to use it on WP again.
But the app is on the edge of being unusable (no sound output, when changing voice the download won´t work - stuck on 0%, when re-routing while driving the new route will appear, but the "calculating" overlay won´t disappear)
As the app seems to abandoned by Waze support, I fear I have to do the same.
It´s a shame. I loved the app and I loved the idea behind it, but that´s it for me.

Bye


The no sound can be kinda fixed by disabling street names and then picking Amy for the voice, she won't say the names of roads anymore but she will say to make the turns. The "calculating" bug mostly affects slower device (but does happen once in a while on my 950XL and 1520), tapping the back button gets rid of it.

Over the summer, Waze changed providers of the voice for the text to speech engine. They updated Android and iOS to reflect this change, but have not updated Windows. They have abandoned us, and will not fix it. Your best bet is to go into the settings and switch the voice from one that reads street names to one that does not. It is not as functional as it used to be, but you will have basic voice navigation instruction again.

Given that there are already over 110 million Windows 10 devices out there and growing, making a universal Windows App even if they are just porting over the latest Android or iOS version makes a lot of sense.

This doesn't work...at least not in my case (640 w/ WP8GD2). There doesn't seem to be a way to hide the bacl/start/search icons. See screenshot.


Yes they can be hidden, you simply put your finger on the bar (preferably the blank spots between Back/Home/Search), then slide your finger up. The bar will go away and you can press Accept.

Apparently some Android APK files can be sideloaded to run on Windows 10 Mobile, it would be interesting to see if that works with Waze (it works with some other apps including Google's My Tracks). That might make it possible to have a version of Waze that is still supported and actually has working voices.

My favorite features of Android are terrible battery life, sluggishness, and constant lockups and rebooting :)
