Screen goes dark after a few minutes of driving as if the iphone didn't know it was busy doing something. Have to 'slide to unlock' to see the map again.

Did this once while just driving (not navigating). Did it again on the way back home while navigating to home.
Each drive took about 8 or 9 minutes.

When this happens, TTL switches from by Bluetooth to speaker and the volume goes up.
If I am not using the bluetooth, the volume still goes up.

EDIT: prevent auto lock apparently fixes this!

Major voice guided navigation issues

Postby riffraf » Mon Aug 18, 2014 9:15 pm

iPhone 4S, 64GB, AT&T, iOS 7.1.2, Waze 3.8.1

Voice guided navigation has become very unreliable with this update.

Waze no longer gives any notice of upcoming turns. Driving at 45 on a state road or 65mph on highway, a "go right now" or "turn right" is inadequate. Sometimes... only sometimes, I get a .1 mile warning. What happened to the one mile or half mile alerts?

In previous versions of Waze I have not had to look at the display in order to navigate with ease. Now, voice guided navigation without constantly checking the screen is impossible.

I thought maybe something had gone wrong with "Elvis" which is my preferred voice, but I deleted and reloaded Waze and went with the default "Samantha" and still have the same lack of timely notifications.

Is anyone else seeing this problem or does anyone have a solution?

When I start out from home the phone still sees my WiFi and is able to calculate the route, but once I'm half a block away it seems clueless. Can't report events (searching for network - but obviously not very hard, since the top of the phone screen reports five bars of LTE). Can't search for new routes. Basically unusable.

Sometimes, I too face the same problem. What I do is when I am about to leave home (before setting destination on Waze) I disable the WIFI and use the phone data when switching on my Waze App. As such, the lag or the tendency for the phone to remain connected to your home WIFI is disrupted.

This would enable the Waze App to function normally.

Forgets GPS and no Voice command

Postby hsanivaram » Tue Aug 05, 2014 3:46 am

Ever since the update, Waze tends to forget linking the GPS and does not take voice command gesture.
Three finger tap, zooms out instead of taking the command.
