Am I alone, or is the latest Waze update the worse ever?! New interface seems to have a bunch of problems including the inability to lock in North, the inability to get rid of Car Info on the bottom ( areally completely useless feature), and it appears unstable as I seem to lose connection every now and then. Just me or do others have issues?

Major issues - Waze will lock up my phone entirely as soon as I get to my 'destination'. The phone is basically completely unresponsive for about 10 minutes. Any button press on the phone will have a delayed input of about 3 minutes. You can't even hard reset the phone either! If I ever needed to call 911 I couldn't! I send Waze a report ticket and they responded quickly and said they are 'sorry' and it is a 'known issue', and a fix would be released with iOS12! To me that is disgusting and I have been running the latest iOS version with no issues, Waze updated their app and caused a problem, but they are not going to fix it anytime soon apparently.

I have never had an issue with Waze in the past but they seriousness of this flaw and their lack of responsibility to fix it really disappoints me. I deleted Waze and re-loaded it but I am not going to use it unless I really need to until a fix is released.

I haven't noticed anything. But all I use it for is making and viewing where LEO are at.

I’ve had that problem before. Took a few weeks and eventually they caught up. Not sure if it was some anti-fraud thing or more likely they broke their big data processing for aggregating points.

This is actually GREAT news.

I know that might sound weird, but...

...whatever. :lol: what I mean by this is, this only increases my excitement about starting the RDFGS 2.0 system. When app makers/services don't listen to their users, why even bother providing such a service?

I can't wait to start working on RDFGS 2.0, it is essentially going to be a Waze/Escort Live! replacement, with a bunch of forks and everything on steroids.

If you guys want to rant/rage about things that Waze has changed/etc, by all means do it productively here: www.rdforum.org: RDF Geographical Survey (RDFGS) <-- this way we can start looking at incorporating your thoughts into the development.

The only issue I have noticed with the newest version is the unless "Car info" at the bottom.
It makes no sense. You could change that before in the settings. Usually that's a one time choice when you are setting it up.
It takes up screen space and at a minimum you should be able to turn it off. Dumb !!

I agree. At first I thought it wasn't saving the choice and I kept trying out but eventually realized it wasn't going to go away.

The only thing that bothers me is how the cursor or arrow for your car seems to be harder to control because it rotates more easily lol. Still worked great with an alert that saved me from an unmarked that was hiding on the shoulder shooting from the rear!

Never had issues with Waze as it never updated. Bought a new phone since old one took a dump and dang it the app updated on it's own. Now glitch heaven and constantly says "Searching For Network."

I never update Waze either but I noticed about a month ago sometimes it takes a long time to find my location when starting up and I also get the "searching for network" sometimes it can take 3-5 min...​

"Car info" at the bottom is the only issue i see.

Was still a better app 10 years ago.

Yep, I noticed that I can't lock north anymore, the car info label that won't go away, the network searching..
Now it appears to zoom out more than it used to automatically at speed, and I can't see the pop-ups (police) like before, just a partially transparent pulsating dot that doesn't catch my eye.

I'm having issues with it becoming unresponsive after any input. Tap the bottom in order to choose a different route? = unresponsive for about 20 seconds. scroll the screen to look ahead a little? = unresponsive for 20 seconds. Has also been very 'laggy' when trying to update my position. Sucks.
This has been happening for the past 2-3 days. I'm on an iPhone with current iOS.

I love the update. Old alerts go away faster and police alerts come sooner.

On the latest iOS w/iPhone 8 Plus: I have been stuck at the same stats or points level for about 3 weeks now. I’ve driven over 5k since then while vacationing the west coast and the points remained at the same level as when I left. I’ve sent my Waze logs in several times via the settings through out the weeks and nothing helped, points and stats still the same. Uninstalled, reinstalled and logged in a few times and nothing has changed.

I've heard that WAZE will stop members from accruing points at times if it is earned in what appears to them as atypical. What I understand that to mean is that sometimes large trips that seem like someone is using a GPS spoofing app are not counted. I don't know how one remedies the situation, or if it just resolves itself, or even if that is the reason for not accruing points in your case. Maybe someone will chime in who has experienced this.
