Works for me too (OP6) - thanks for the full path

The Battery Advanced Optimization worked for me on the OnePlus6.
But it seems it works only if I use the phone solely. When I tried to use Waze on Android Auto, it started but then hang and stopped working. I was unable to open Spotify or Google Maps on Android Auto. Then I stopped the car and changed back the "Battery Advanced Optimization" and, obviously, Waze stopped getting GPS signal again, but all Android Auto apps working fine. So, I must conclude that the Battery Advanced Optimization on the phone does not allow all the background process required by Android Auto to run. For now I just have to use Google maps waiting for the Waze fix for this issue.
But, for those that do not use Android Auto, the battery Advanced Optimization may be an acceptable temporary workaround.

Very pleased to say it all seems back to normal now.

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 ;-)

There have been some background changes made by OnePlus.
You can switch off the Advanced Optimization.
If not already working, reboot and it should start working (you don't need Advanced Optimization enabled anymore).

The solution of the battery optimization actually helped!
the funny thing if you enable it and waze works and then disable the option to the default state,
it still works!
so try to turn on the advance battery optimization and turn it off again

thanks for the quick solution :)
