Has anyone else had the latest update prevent the GPS from working?

I have an Eonon Ga2171s head unit which I only just installed a few weeks ago. Waze was working great until last week (which would have been around the time of this update) and it now won't connect to the GPS at all. GPS is still working on Google maps etc so I know it's not a hardware fault.

Once the vehicle is selected, "car info" is displayed OVER the car icon. Four months and we're still dealing with this bug every day.
YES! The "Car Info" button always popping up at start is extremely irritating .... that is something you (or at least "I") only mess with every few years .... there is no need for it to pop up by default.

Well, for some reason, that doesn't work for me ..... I usually open Waze "horizontally" ... after the Car Info button pops up, I turn it vertically then back, the button disappears. I also "just" noticed, if I start it "vertically" and the button pops up, it will disappear when turning "horizontally".

But regardless of all that, it should "not" pop up "at all" .... if you want to change "car info", you should need to go into Settings.

Hello everyone.

I've been using waze for some time and every time after about an hour of travel the app closes automatically.

I have a huawei nova lite+ android 7

Is there any solution?

Hi,

Release 4.46.2.1
Strange. Yes the still annoying Vehicle Type but Start in horisontal, move map, recenter, gone, change to verticle, still gone!
Crash or Stops working. On trips of 2.5 to 3.5 hours long it does crash, usually not far from your next change/turn/roundabout!
Have sent logs. This version just installed and to test but I seen no likelyhood of change.
Now seems incapable of calculation advanced trips or planned drives.
Try to select tomowwow and the wheel spins intermably and then gives a blank set of times to arive.

Des. . . ;)

Hello,

I am new using Waze. Its a fantastic app but 1 thing drives me crazy. The Auto zoom. It seems I cant disable it. In the past there was the option the disable it in settings but it seems since version 4.41.1.900 the option to disable Auto Zoom is disabled. Why is that? The auto zoom does zoom out way too much so everything becomes too small. I prefer to see the surrounded streets where I drive. I dont need to see the whole city map when I drive faser then 50km/h. Is the option comming back?

Been using Waze in my 2018 Rogue for the past 6 months and love it, but 1 thing is driving me crazy. There is no way to see the up coming turn list. You can do it on the phone App but not on the car display? This is a big deal as its extremely helpful. Please please please add it.

I'm starting to wonder if anyone that works at Waze actually drives. Basic functionality still eludes them, but they waste their time making changes that break the parts the kinda worked.
