    Waze is a Google company so they aren't interested anymore. Seems to work okay on my Lumia 830 though.

    Well blow me down. I think I've discovered the issue... Bluetooth being turned on. Its not connected to anything mind, but turning the Bluetooth off meant that I got some sound from the app... Obviously a crappy port that doesn't fully understand the WP Bluetooth

    I just started having audio issues yesterday. I can get voice directions without street names but with street names does not work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no go. The only response I could get from support was that they didnt support the Windows Phone platform any longer. A shame since I still feel its the best app out there that adjust routes based on realtime traffic.

    That's why I want to use it. Nokia drive is great, but doesn't adjust and has no speed cameras, Waze doesn't have current speed limit. If o could combine both, that'd be a win!

    So far I like it. There's a learning curve as the interface is different and takes a bit to adjust to from a Waze perspective but I like it. I initially wasnt getting spoken street names but I figured that out quickly.

    Does it have speed cameras and adjust routes based on traffic?

    Yes but not the free version includes ActiveTraffic however very reasonably priced at $10 year. They offer a 7 day free trial.

    I've been having issues with Waze not having voice navigation as well! However, I think there is a solution (see below). Btw, I recently got a new phone so I was perplexed why the Waze app wasn't saying anything on this new device.

    So I think what you mean is that under Settings>Speech>Read aloud incoming text messages.... I changed it to "wired headset only".

    There is a bluetooth issue with the app so it is trying to send its voice navigation to bluetooth.

    I will test whether the app starts doing voice navigation. So far, it looks like it is working as the beeping indicating navigation has started is working but I'm inside so I will test it when I drive home.

    Didnt work for me. Voice file craps out at 95% from what I can tell. Only directions without street names available.

    How do you check the voice files?
    06-27-2015 08:31 PM
  15. Mark Kaplan's Avatar
    There's no way to check. It's my theory. When I install I get activating voice file and it hangs at 95% then disappears.

    I didn't touch this seeing, just turned Bluetooth off entirely. BUT, it only worked that once... It's very flakey and haven't managed to get it to do it again, so back to square one.
    I might try that setting now tho...

    Nope, just tested and that made no difference :(

    Yeah, it's flakey. I don't see the 95% voice files at all. The only voice navigation I get is the directions without street names.

    Same here. I only get the 95% message at the top upon first launch after re-install.

    Same thing here, no voice... But will try to change the speech settings after work, hopefully it'll work.

    Even without voice, I still love the app... It has saved me alot dodging traffic and cops.

    It didn't work just by changing the settings but last night I uninstalled and reinstalled, went into Waze settings to the navigation guide voice choices downloaded English UK Simon and it downloaded to 100% last night and it worked this morning. However it only works with directions only, it doesn't work with street names. I'll take it! Better than nothing!

    Sorry Vaderag

    I'm on a 1520, speech setting set to wired only, not sure if it matters but I got to the navigation guide voice settings from my Waze inbox. I clicked on one of those terminator popups to get Arnolds voice and it had a option to save in inbox. After uninstalling and reinstalling went to my inbox and went that route. Also did this all over Wi-Fi.
