Fixed by deleting the app and reinstalling it, works like a champ now!

I found that sometimes waze will prevent a GPS fix from occurring. Thus, when I open waze and it cannot get a fix, if I then open another app that tries to get GPS data (e.g. Google maps or GPS status) those apps can't get a fix either. If I then reboot and open one of those other apps first, the GPS gets a fix, if I then open waze while the GPS is providing good data, waze works fine.

Here lately I have been getting the same no gps reading. I have an Android with the updated software. I have went as far as uninstalling the app and reinstalling the app but that has not helped. I have tried rebooting and that does not help either. I have left the app running for over an hour at a time hoping that it will pick up the signal and that has not helped either. This has been a good app in the past but now that I am having problems with it not working for me then I don't know if it is feasible for me to continue to try to use it. I would like any help to resolve this issue. It doesn't help me at all with the rush hour traffic or for me to be able to report things either.

This issue appear also to me very often, lost gps signal when google maps get fine instead.

Only after numerous attempts to restart waze / gps i can navigate normally. At now I have not yet understood where is the problem.

I've LG OPTIMUS ONE with android 2.3 and latest version of Waze.

hi,
when i have gps problems, i ran gps doctor and it fixes it.
you may want to see if there is an equivalent program that is free if you just want to experiment.

if you do run gps doctor though, try to do it when at home or in the morning, because once you run it, it will take a few minutes for your gps software to get a fix. but it fixes my gps problems 98% of the time.

Follow-up: I'm pretty sure it's dodgy hardware on my iPhone because:

a) Today I went into Google maps and that also was stuck in the same (wrong) location.

b) I've just remembered that it gets worse, the hotter the phone is.

You can of course use an external Bluetooth GPS receiver. This sounds inconvenient, but presumably you can leave it permanently in your car and powered on, and just continue to use the smartphone as usual, once it's configured to use the Bluetooth GPS (how on earth you do that I have no idea).
