Hey all, I noticed this yesterday on a long trip. Thankfully I had Highway Radar running on a separate phone, so I was alerted to this issue.
You can see in the attached video a few police reports ahead. However, when I activate navigation, the reports disappear from the map. When I stop navigation, they re-appear. This issue persisted with a forced restart of the app. An hour or so later, I tried again and everything worked normally again. I guess this is another reason why I put very little trust in Waze alone.

I've seen some bizarre things in Waze with reports appearing and disappearing from the map. I've also seen a bug where Waze will alert me to a certain police pin but that pin will not show up in the count of "police on route" when I go to the route overview. I agree that Waze alone should not be considered reliable protection, although it is a very useful tool.

I’ve been dealing with problems on CarPlay. Every once in a while my phone will not show alerts but that usually happens when there is a crash with 15 reports all in one spot. My car play is a real pain and I don’t trust it anymore. Any police pins will not show up on the map at all until I am either within a couple hundred feet or have just passed it. It happened today and yesterday. This has been going on for a awhile now. It will work 8 out of 10 times but you never know until it’s too late. And the worst part is there will be pins for traffic or hazards but only police pins will be hidden or glitched.

I have the exact same issues as you do with Carplay. I made a thread about it a few months ago. This is why I always run Highway Radar alongside Waze.

Unfortunately I have an iPhone. Hopefully it can come to iOS in the future but I don’t know too much about it

My real phone is an iPhone as well, but I bought a cheap android phone that's permanently mounted. I use a free data plan from FreedomPop. Works like a charm

I use Waze without issue but have recently started running the Highway Radar app on top of Waze. I don't believe Waze, nor a radar detector are the ultimate solutions but they do add an additional layer of awarness.
