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?



I just tried this... Unfortunately not working...

Unfortunately, same here: OnePlus 5 in The Netherlands.
After re-install I *do* get the approval request to use GPS and when starting the app I see the current location in the map. But after starting a route I get the red error msg that it cannot connect to GPS.
If I then switch to Maps (and see actual location) and switch back to Waze the location is updated once but the GPS error remains and location does not change in the map.
*update*: I also tried changing Battery Optimization for Waze. I normally do not have it turned on. And the app setting was
"optimize". I tried switching optimization setting to "not optimize"and also tried setting the optimize status to on/off: no effect

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

Settings --> Battery --> Battery optimization --> 3 dots top right --> advanced optimization

This seems to have solved it for me

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.

Hi all,

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

@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 :)
