The speedometer is gone! I can't see the option to enable it either.

I have un-installed the app several times and re-installed. Same problem.

Can someone please help!

Much appreciated!

Speedometer has always been working in the UK(london), so this happened after the update.

So, something must have happened.

where exactly? Because I can't find it.

Can someone point me to the speedometer options in Waze? It has disappeared from the main screen/navigation pane. It's a must for me.

Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem since the last update. Sadly, this makes Waze not usable anymore. :cry:

Guys the solution is easy.
Go to Waze set up.
You have to enable this option.

Hi, I am a waze user in Brazil.

I am using ios 9.3.1, waze and whatsapp 2.16.2.

When I try to share my ETA through WhatsApp, I click "more" and select whatsapp. It opens the whatsapp contact list and I choose one contact, but I get a message saying that is not possible sharing ETA.

Has anyone already had this problem?

In my old mobile, I used android and I could share my ETA and also my location through whatsapp directly without issues...

Now I need to select "more", then "copy", open whatsapp manually, paste the copied link and send to the selected contact...

Can anyone help me?

Seriously, the post immediately before yours was urging people to read the thread as the post immediately before that asked the same question.

It's a known bug, there's no ETA for a fix, hopefully the next release but no promises.
Glad to see it's on their radar at least. 6s, 9.3.1, 4.4.0, same bug. Extremely annoying.

Appreciate the info Vince! I've had to drive with Alerts only for a while. Needless to say I miss having the full nav voice. :)

Since the last update my Waze App hasn't been working as it used to.
Now my lock screen keeps interfering, which this never happened before.

And now when I'm stuck in traffic, and/or where the there are traffic jams, were the road
Used to turn red or orange, I can no longer see them. All I can see is the little round warning
Bubble to tell me that there is traffic.

Is this a fault or is this is how Waze is now going to be?

I hope I make sense!

I had this problem too when the update happened, turns out the "Display on Map" settings had went back to default, where they don't show traffic colors on road.

In that setting there will be sliders to turn on/off what you want to display on the map. Traffic and any other missing ones should be there and simply turned off!

Hope that helps :mrgreen:
