    On my phone, Waze doesn't give me audible alerts to road hazards, police, red light camera's, etc. They show up on the screen, but the voice doesn't tell me that there is an issue up ahead. I get turn-by-turn directions so my audio works, but I'd sure like to know about police and road hazards audibly rather than having to watch my screen. I don't have a Waze account could this be why? If that doesn't matter, than what I am missing?

    Go to settings, Display & Map, Alerts on Route. Make sure the toggles are on. If that doesn’t fix it, delete app and reinstall.

    Get an account. It doesn't cost anything. Not sure that will fix your sound.

    @fitx4321 All of that was already enabled, but thanks for the suggestion.

    @ILS27L I registered an account; we'll see if that fixes the issue.

    Thanks guys

    My GF has an issue with Audio as well, but its because her iPhone is probably connecting to BT and trying to do audio that way.

    For me i just selected for Waze to alert through phone always. But i use Android.

    Couple of weeks ago I rented a Dodge and it’s BT was horrible.
    Last week I had a Hyundai and is was worse than bad. My Infiniti’s BT started acting up when I upgraded to iOS 11. Going to have to see about updating its software when it comes out of hibernation.
    Every car is different. Some are better...
