So far so good for me. No crashing at the moment.

I really like the WAZE app and use it daily. I have a suggestion for a cool feature: please allow the end user to add a button or icon that allows the reporting of a car on the side of the road. I do this often and it would be really useful to do it in one press versus four or more.

I have tried:
logging in using my username & password
verifying my phone #
force closing the app - deleting data & cache - uninstall then reinstall

Nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

It also tells me that it can't download the voice files occaisionally.


I think I fixed it. I closed out and used a file manager to delete the Waze folder after I uninstalled Waze. Reinstalled and it only asked me to login the first time I launched it.

WTH? I booted Waze this morning, and it brought up screens as if I had just installed it....Had to agree to terms and conditions, verify my phone number and my screen was reset to 3D mode. Luckily my Home and Work locations were not wiped.

Anyone else see this?

Just got it this afternoon, and had to pick my girlfriend up from her work.

Waze has FINALLY fixed two HUGE issues with the software - the voice directions now apparently give accurate distance estimates to turns, and when approaching your destination, it actually displays the house number.

This is huge. HUGE. Seriously Waze guys, it's about friggin' time, but you have no idea how appreciated this is. We've been asking for this for literally years, not because we're picky, but because these features are really, really important.

Neither good nor bad - the TTS recordings are apparently new as well. I frequently drive on a "Buckman Road" and now the name of the road is subtly mispronounced differently than it used to be mispronounced :)

My scoreboard won't load, hasn't since 7/28, tried force stopping app, shut down phone removed battery, unistalled, reinstalled, 45000 points now don't show, went from "sword" to baby upon reinstall, Scoreboard still won't load, can see friends still. Very buggy it seems. If it isn't fixed soon, next step will be a permanent uninstall.

Several new issues since the update to 3.8.1.0, on a DROID MINI with Android 4.4.4:
  • As others have mentioned, the scoreboard is completely not working.
  • I also get the same error message if I try to view a message in my Waze inbox.
  • By far the most significant issue is that the traffic layer frequently (as in, about 80% of the time) doesn't show up on the map. Typically, I can see the traffic layer when I first start up the app, but all of the traffic disappears after a minute or two of driving. I can still see traffic reports, but not the actual traffic layer. If I make a traffic report, the traffic layer will suddenly appear again (not just on my current segment, but on all roads in view on the map), but traffic again disappears after another minute or two of driving.
In case it's useful, I live in northern Virginia, USA.

I don't like voice guidance; I usually find it more distracting than helpful. Due to this, I switch it off...only to find (once a week or so) that it is suddenly switched on again. Why?

(HTC One M8 och Android 4.4.3)

Same on Nexus 5 - 4.4.4 (Waze Version 3.8.1)

Same here ! (Note : they are appearing, but the names are blank/empty)
