Should those BE streets though? My guess is probably not.

If you can do 50mph on a road it probably shouldn't be a normal street anyway.
OP, can you give a permalink or address for this road?

Yes, it does that. If you navigate to a destination, you'll see the route at least.

Actually, I didn't mean to do that. I'm going to blame it on being fairly new at the time when I posted that. ;)

What I did is edited the waze/preferences file and changed this line:

from:
AutoZoom.Speed Factor: 15
to:
AutoZoom.Speed Factor: 30

Now the zooming out to the point that the streets "disappear" happens at >60mph, instead of >45mph

Hope this helps!

If you use any mode other than autozoom by speed, this does not happen. Just FYI. I do still agree there is a problem, but there is a workaround.

I live in Michigan, and it's not uncommon to go 55-60 on roads that are not highways. It's extremely annoying to go 50 mph and see all normal roads disappear. Annoying when you want to see upcoming intersections while driving on a 55mph road. The other day I was driving on a 'normal' road in a somewhat-rural area of Michigan and all roads on the map, including the one I was driving on, disappeared. It was all gray. Waze was effectively useless.

I hope the developers plan on adding preferences to disable the road-hiding feature or set these zoom threshold levels manually in the settings. I use an iPhone, so I can edit preference files by hand.

Perhaps a compromise if system performance is concerned is to do as suggested earlier, allow roads to be hidden, but always show the road you are on and the ones immediately interesting in front of you, regardless of their 'rank'.

I get the impression that the developers live in large cities and don't expect people to ever drive faster than 45-50 unless if they're on the highway.

Perhaps I'm repeating what's been mostly said, but this should really be more of a priority, in my opinion. It's enough of a problem to make me want to open other apps to have more context of where I am sometimes.

Glad to see others see this too. Texas has a lot of two lane 70mph roads. I just started using Waze and was disconcerted when the map blanked out on me. I don't need to see all roads, but it would be helpful to see both the road I'm currently on as well as cross streets.

As the title describes, as I'm driving and accelerate beyond 50 mph, all the roads in the surrounding areas disappear. This is a little disconcerting to me since it appears I'm just driving in an empty field:

When I slow down, it goes back to normal like this:

I like the general look of the maps on Waze better than TomTom, but at least TT shows me the roads no matter what speed I'm driving, which I prefer.



You change this is your settings
