Initial testing indicates that this bug has been fixed in Beta 3.6.99.6 :D

I am glad to hear about progress on this issue in the beta.

Any ETA on the release?

I would say a couple of weeks. The latest version has been crashing on me nearly every drive. This is something I've not experienced in this magnitude in many versions.

This was fixed in Waze 3.7, if I'm not mistaken.

Can you provide a screen shot? Either from the app if it's visible there, or from your drives in WME.

Do you mean like just a picture of when my car is astray? Can you make something out of that?
This looks very strange in the preview, I just go ahead and submit...

Could you post a screenshot of Apple Maps in that same location?

This may be a different problem.

They are differently oriented and it might be like 2 minutes between the shots, but it is in the same spot :D First with iPhonw map
