A year later and the lock still does not exist.

Known issue. You can lock it for a good amount of the time, but certain actions will cause it to unlock.

On iOS, it is better than before, but it still sometimes pops out of north-up.

I'm using 3.1.1.0 on iPad with iOS 5. Is there any setting to keep the map always pointing north-up? Thanks!

Why are you unable to lock the map into always north position??? You're able to push the button and it goes into north but 2 seconds later the map rotates on its own as to what direction you're heading it just mixes you up when you're so used to north always facing up but it seems there is no way to get the map to lock is there an option I'm missing? Because I know all the other nav systems you're able to lock it thanks for you're time...

Yes I am using iOS 3.1.0 for iPhone 4s... It locks for literally 3-6 seconds then it turns in the direction u drive... This is insanely annoying!!

This problem persists on an iPad with iOS5 and Waze 3.1.0.0.
Almost anything will pop the map back to car direction = up. This includes a nudge from the accelerometer when you go around a corner. Most annoying!

Are you using the most up-to-date version of the client? What you're describing (fast automatic switch out of north-up view) was the norm in the older 2.x versions. The 3.x versions (or at least Android 3.0, don't have iOS) appear to be able to keep the view in north-up indefinitely.

Waze Staff has communicated to the Champs that this issue is on the roadmap to be fixed in one of the next couple of releases, so hang in there a bit longer. ;)
