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..

@binoSunny4: Waze did communicate, early on it was posted that they were looking into the issue and asked for debug logs, their latest communication was shared a few pages back by a Champ.

@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?

Same issue here - OnePlus 5T - since yesterday Waze is unable to find GPS - Showing approximate location. Cleared phone's cache - uninstalled - reinstalled application - not working.

I'm using both oneplus One and the 3T, both have gps signal issues,my solution is always to open google maps in the background and waze would automatically get the signal back .. no idea why but it works for me

Android 7.1.1 / Romania

I have oneplus5 android version 8.1. Waze stopped working yesterday although all other apps use the gps normally. I tried uninstalling and installing. I even tried to install 2 older versions of waze. Nothig works. After restart when running waze the gps icon shows at the top and after a few secods it disapears. And no matter what you do in waze it does not show. As if waze is not even starting to call the gps functionality. All othet apps on the phone are showing this icon as soon as they start gps ineraction (GPS Test, google maps...)

I can confirm that the temporary fix from Netherlands user works. Works now

Hello
I tried the tip in the post that I quote and Waze connects well to the GPS. I cross the rights for a valid solution coming .....

My take on this:
Fact 1: it seems to affect only OxygenOS phones;
Fact 2: the bug is reported from all over the world;
Fact 3: the bug seems to have surfaced at roughly the same time (UTC) for everyone affected.

Conclusion: Waze has a function to determine the time, as reported by GPS satellites. This result is stored in a variable that, in the implementation of Android as OgygenOS, is dimensioned so that at a certain moment the value was too big for the variable. The return value is interpreted as negative as a result of the overflow. Negative returns from a function call are often (certainly when it should be a timestamp, which is always positive) interpreted as a failure, leading Waze to the conclusion that no satellite connections have been found.

I am very interested to see what the cause will turn out to be.
