    Can confirm that on my commute this morning the battery did NOT drain at the rate it was before and the phone didn't even get hot to the touch. Not sure if it is "fixed" but it certainly is better. The phone used to drain even though I had it charging via USB from my stereo.

    Still is not at 100% when I get to work, but 98% charged versus 85% charged when plugged in is a huge improvement in my book.

    Going to see how it does from 100% on the way home without charging.


    Oh...and still wish they would have added landscape mode...oh well, hopefully soon...

    Has anyone heard anything about an update? iPhone and Android got updated to 3.8 about a month ago. Would be nice to get the update for us too.

    Even though they say they're going to keep supporting WP8 after the Google purchase, I don't know if I believe it. They kept saying they were going to continue supporting Symbian for years without releasing an update, and did the same for Windows Mobile and BlackBerry (prior to 10). It was very disappointing and I hope they don't repeat that process again for WP8.

    So does HERE Drive if you're using it in English at least. It's not as evident of a feature though. You have to go to the voice settings and download "English - Street Names" voices.

    I definitely agree with you. I like Waze, but I think the developers may forget about Windows Phone. There's been at least one major update to the iOS and Android apps that we have not seen or even heard to be in development. It looks like they promised a WP app, so they delivered. Then Google took over and said no more. I really hope that's not the case.

    Sadly I predict Google will cannibalize what they want from waze and put it in Google Maps. Then get rid of Waze
