Waze app for smartphone and Android Auto gets bug fix update
Now the application has received a new update that brings some interesting improvements, both in the smartphone version and in Android Auto. Today, many cars arrive with Android Auto installed on their on-board computer, giving their users the ability to use various navigation applications.
Typically, users eventually choose between Google Maps and Waze. However, due to some bugs, the choice has fallen on the former. So far there were two strengths that made Waze much more effective in car switching, real-time incident warnings and the ability to use streaming services such as Spotify.
Unfortunately, several users reported problems playing music via Spotify, eventually causing them to switch to Google Maps. In addition, route selection has also been inefficient, especially compared to Google Maps.
Now in this new update these issues seem to have been resolved. Along with the arrival of some design changes to make it easy to view important information.

Regarding smartphones. One of the most common problems I came across was calculating the distance / time between point A and point B. For some reason I don't know. Just after I start moving, time and distance are correctly calculated, leaving me extremely frustrated.
Once again, it seems that this new update will resolve this issue. Finally, the smartphone app has been experiencing some issues with GPS signal reception on several smartphones, which should also have been resolved in this latest update.
