With the new update to v3.8.1.0, has any user experience Waze give a "dual" or repeat prompt on turn/exiting instructions via TTS/voice?

Examples:
  1. Exit to Exit to Kindergarten Court
  2. Exit right to Exit to Kindergarten Court

If so, could you post here or PM me with the details?

Thanks,

This was confirmed with 3.8.0.0 as a change to the TTS instructions by design. It used to say for a primary road (highway/freeway) to a non-primary road;
Exit at <segment name>,
it now says; Exit to <segment name>

If the segment name for example is <Exit 2: Front St> your TTS will be "Exit to exit 2, front street"

<Exit to 2nd St> your TTS will be "Exit to exit to second street"

When I Stop Navigation in the middle of a route, the next turn still displays at the top of the screen.

data sync problem

Postby Xuefer » Mon Jul 21, 2014 9:20 am

after deleting waze folder in sdcard, waze no longer works. the app data has to be clear too to recover from this state
This make make me into thinking that, waze store data not just separately, but separately illogically: waze store a flag(s) in app data about if something is downloaded to sdcard, why not just store this flag(s) with those data together in sdcard? data stored in sdcard tends to be corrupted/lost or switched sdcard etc. It's ok if waze won't detect if some file is removed in sdcard, but in case the whole folder is deleted it should download/reinitialize to a working state

this may have something to do with the following issue below

waze app vs lang mismatch

Postby Xuefer » Mon Jul 21, 2014 9:24 am

i was using old waze and have Chinese (any lang other than the builtin english) lang downloaded automatically. when waze is upgraded it still using old lang file until i update the map data in waze setting

even so, some of the old lang strings remains there
for example, some string was translated to Chinese in old version of lang file, but is decided to be not translated in new lang file. i update the map (so does lang file), the english text is still in chinese translated state (while other translated string is updated)
this problem won't disappear until i remove the entire waze folder on sdcard (which lead to the problem i post in previous reply)

login with existing user need phone number re-verified

Postby Xuefer » Mon Jul 21, 2014 9:27 am

the new waze app ask me to verify (associate) phone number, which is good. but after i logout, this weird thing happen: i re-login with my verified account and it ask me to verify the phone again. when i do it just stuck there no going everywhere. i had to close waze gracefully and open waze back up, it seems i've login correctly by checking the setting/account page. that means the re-verify isn't necessary at all

To clear out the old language translations for TTS you shouldn't need to delete the entire folder. Open Waze and navigate to [cc@tts], type it in as if its an address you want to navigate to, without the square brackets. This should erase all previously downloaded language strings.

I'm currently using my LG G2 D802 and it doesn't seem to offer a full TTS feature. Any ideas on how to fix this?
