I just noticed a Chevron station this morning which had "NA" for the mid and premium grade, which definitely had prices last week. Last updated by 3rd party.

Problems appeared again today. Some of the same stations. I didn't pass all the same stations, so I don't know if all the same ones have the issue. All these prices were OK yesterday.

Today, each station I checked was fine, but 3/6 were updated this morning by another Wazer already.

I haven't seen the problem lately in my area, but the prices also have not, for the most part, changed for a week. I have noted that it seems that any time a price changes, that is when I will see the NA from a 3rd party update. I think something is wrong with the update code, or the 3rd party provider is sending bad data for these changes.

Ehud

Ehud, that is exactly what this thread is all about and we've been doing that since we were asked. I've been documenting the exact station location as well in this thread. What else are you looking for?

Ok. Great. I'm sure we can continue to post examples as they occur. However, for me, since prices again have not changed in quite some time at most stations, I think that I will not see the problem again until prices do adjust. But as a group, others should be able to post the prices that went NA and the permalink in the editor for the station.

This Shell station is showing all four prices as NA this afternoon. I've updated it myself before. The last updated by information was missing from the screen.

Just in case Waze is at all still interested in the clearly broken update process from 3rd party when prices change, this is still happening daily.
