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.

I have same issue with iPhone 4 and iOS 6. Apple Maps looks fine, but Waze has no idea where I am, or it finds where I am every five minutes or so.

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

I was having this issue also, even though it was still showing me driving down the interstate pretty accurately. I just cut my phone off and back on and restarted Waze, and I haven't had the issue since. I'm on an iPhone 5 with iOS 6.01
Columbia, SC - Cleveland, TN
AT&T, iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.4, Waze 3.7.7.0

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.

What GPS did you buy? And how easy was it for Waze to recognize it? I have a Galaxy Nexus and I live in a heavy urban area and the GPS goes all over the place at times. I was looking at the Garmin GLO for a external bluetooth GPS and that it uses both the American and the Russian GPS systems. That should increase accuracy using more satellites.

Sometimes my GNex glitches with the GPS and states no GPS as yours does. I just leave Waze in the background, open Google Maps, let it lock on to my position, then return to Waze. This has fixed the issue every time. It has only happened about 5 to us to me though.

I never used to get this (I have the same phone, IOS and so on) but now I increasingly do.

Some journeys it doesn't happen at all, others I'm plagued by it.

Sometimes just leaving it alone is all I have to do and it fixes itself. Other times powering off the phone and on again kind of helps for a while.

I also quite often lose GPS lock when I turn a corner. This is when the view will change to different satellites, I assume.

I just assumed that it's because the GPS in the iPhone 3GS is a bit rubbish, and my phone is getting old.

I think comparing with Google maps can be a bit misleading because that also uses WiFi and 3GS signals, whereas I don't know if Waze does that?
