All are nearly exactly the same distance traveled. Drive processing is clearly not happy with something happening during some drives.

What kind of network switches are going on at each end? Cell to WiFi on each? Same encryption on each WiFi (grasping as straws here)?

I usually have wifi off, so one end is LTE, the other is 3G. No known breaks in coverage during the entire commute.

I had the same pattern. It is possible my phone is connecting to a (possibly my) WiFi network upon arriving home that is interrupting the transfer. This wouldn't affect my morning commutes.

I had always had Data Compression on in the previous version and never noticed this behaviour of missing drives, though.

But you shouldn't lose the whole drive. At worst shouldn't you only lose from where you lost the internet connection.


The drive uploads haven't worked like this for a while. The entire drive uploads when you switch Waze off. This all started with the last beta before 3.5 was released, so it may not have become an issue to the general public until 3.5.

I find that my drive reliably uploads if my final destination is home, where my phone connects to Wifi as soon as I pull into my driveway.

That explains a lot. Thanks. So if I press the "Switch Off" button the app isn't killed - just the GPS is switched off and drive uploaded? I was beginning to worry as to whether "Switch Off" would prevent a drive from being uploaded now.

My problem is I park on the street outside and if it gets a Wifi connection upon arrival it may well not be a reliable one...

This 3.5 version seems like a backwards step in this regard.

My problem would be at the work end, too, if I didn't have wifi disabled, as the default wifi there requires AD domain authentication to get through to the internet, so most non-work data is blocked.

Must be an iOS version issue.

just ran into this on my phone - however i had connectivity issues at the beginning of the drive, not the end, which was my return trip home - the trip there showed up fine however. would love to help find any rhyme/reason behind this!

If you mean the version of the actual iOS operating system, I upgraded to 6.0 and then 6.0.1 just about 2 weeks ago, but this problem started for me on October 6 (that I know of...maybe earlier) and that's around the time the complaints in the forums started. I think it may be unique to iOS devices though. Haven't noticed anyone reporting this with an Android, but of course, I don't read the Android forums either.
