Same over here for me it started after the 5.1.11 update on OP6. All other gps based apps work perfectly fine. I heavily rely on Waze so I hope it gets fixed soon.

@elibek and eveyone else: Please STOP to uninstall/reinstall - This was NEVER suggested as a possible solution, 100% of the people who tried it already reported that it does not work.

@EVERYONE: A user from the Netherlands reported the following:
It have a GPS fix when I turn on this switch. The battery advanced optimization.
See screenshot.

Can you try his solution and see if it works for you as a temporary fix until Waze/Oneplus can provide a more permanent solution?


Ohww yeah this seems to fix the problem. Go into settings - battery - battery optimisation - 3 dot menu upper right - advanced optimisation - choose advanced optimisation.

I used Waze this morning to work and it seems to work. I do notice it takes some time to get GPS fix again after switching to other app and last 50m to destination it shows trip finished but at least it works (so long so good)

Maybe some caution because it seems advanced battery optimisation can lead to apps not giving any notifications until opened, so maybe it's an option to switch it off after using Waze? Haven't tried yet.

Which makes me believe it's a OnePlus problem after all. Older Waze versions that used to work and still work fine on other phones don't work on OnePlus and my guess is OnePlus has some weird battery optimisation code going on to improve the neverending forum filled "bad battery life" problems (which imo are mostly unjustified)

It seems like the problems have disappeared overnight. I switched advanced battery optimisation off and Waze acts fine as it did before.
Very curious though how they fixed it, without any physical update (did they push something in the background?)
Anyway thanks to the coder who gave up his sleep last night to fix this ;-)

The problem is generally solved. OnePlus pushed modified software to OP phones. Just uncheck advanced battery optimisation and reboot. Waze should work normal again!

Just got OnePlus 7T Pro, Waze works well in Android Auto. However, when call is active, looks like Waze lost GPS signal. After the call is ended, Waze returns to normal navigation. It doesn't happen with Google Maps. Looks like some issue with Waze.

Toggling Advanced Battery Optimisation worked and leaving Waze app battery optimisation on. Followed by a reboot
