Same problem with my op5. Waze cannot find gps while all other apps using GPS work fine. Tried to uninstall/install, permission to location but nothing came of it.
Waze wake up..

Hi all,

Yes, this temporary workaround works for me too. Thank you.

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?

@vince1612 Sadly, this does not work for me. OP5, Android 8.1.0, OxygenOS 5.1.4 (Security patch level of 1 july 2018). Tried all combinations of Battery optimisation (on,off for waze) and advanced battery optimisation (on,off). None of them brought back the GPS signal for Waze...

Edit: After several reports of users with the same device and OS, I tried to reboot my device.
Configuration is now:
  • Waze is NOT battery optimised
  • Advanced optimisation is ON
And indeed, after reboot, Waze got back its GPS fix.

Since I don't want that advanced optimisation being enabled, I tried the following:
  • Waze is NOT battery optimised
  • Advanced optimisation is OFF
That seemed to work for a moment: Waze got its GPS fix but lost it after ten seconds.

So for now, the work-around is indeed to enable Advanced optimisation and reboot the device but I hope a definitive fix will be around 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.

For those who do not want to lose the notications of other applications by activating advanced optimization just disable the optimization of the battery only for Waze and restart the oneplus.
It's that simple.

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 :)
