Can't really see this problem.
I had it before, but it was just simply me. Not the App.

Press the North Sign on the Compass and it will fix it self to North. Works for me everytime.

Tap the north-up button in the app. It isn't totally reliable and will sometimes switch back to direction orientation, though.

I know I can click on the compass and the map will reorient so that I can see if I'm going West - then I'm heading toward the LEFT.
I'm very good at reading maps and that's the way I want it displayed; but I like the other things we get from Waze.
My brother said it's an option on Google maps and you can set it to North is ALWASY up top.

And, on this site it says you get 200 points when I friend signs up. I got my brother to sign up (I was physically with him) and it did ask (how did you hear about us) but it DID NOT have a place to put my info in - thus, no points for me! :roll: :roll:

It's a problem because it's really not that simple for a lot of us. I tap "N" and it fixes North at the top, but the minute I change direction, report something, or receive a notification, it "unfixes" the direction. So, if you're actively using your map, you're very frequently tapping "N". That's not exactly user friendly.

I'm also used to reading maps with North at the top, and that's how I perceive my area, so I'd like the option to always have North at the top.

It is most annoying that the map reverts to driving direction = up, especially when you go around a turn. This complaint was logged ages ago and nothing seems to done about it. :x
