Waze 3.5, iPhone 4S, iOS 6 - Is There A Workaround?

Postby OldGnome » Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:04 am

I am fully aware that we are waiting for a fix from Waze.

I have the usually reported problem where Waze won't even load. The other symptom I get when Waze will load is that no audio is possible. I have tried a secondary audio app and I get nothing from Waze or anything else.

Is there a workaround to the situation?

Are you at IOS 6.0.2 yet?

I ask because my 4s running 6.0.2 seems to run Waze 3.5 just fine.

Same here. Don't they do some kind of controlled release where only some people get it over a certain time frame, to keep the servers from getting overloaded?

I believe that is correct. I have checked two iPhone 4S' and get the same response.

Consequently, my workaround question still stands.

You're right. I'm an idiot. Obviously I was thinking of something else.

They need a 6.0.2. I'm having very little trouble with Waze (knock on wood), but there's weird glitches in a number of other apps I use on a daily basis.

I don't think there is an iOS 6.0.2 (yet). There is, however, an iOS 6.0.1 patch that that has to be installed with an Internet-connected iTunes computer and the USB cable, since the update says iOS 6.0.1 corrects a bug in iOS 6.0 that makes over-the-air updates not work.

I updated mine using WiFi, so it may only be specific circumstances that require connecting directly to computer.
I'd be ranked higher if I drove more than 5 miles to work. :-(
But I only have to drive 5 miles to work. :-)
