Not sure about Android, but in iOS, there are separate settings to allow each app access to GPS or what iOS calls "location services." Ensure that is on in the Android OS settings.

Does Waze ever put up a notification at the top like "Can't get GPS signal. Go outdoors." or anything like that in red text?

Is it a matter of the screen staying focused on one location and the car icon moving or is the car/pointer icon also staying in one place?

I have seen the former case on my Android (maybe also on iPhone but don't recall). If I tap on the screen to bring up the compass and target buttons and then tap the target button the screen centers on my location with the car/pointer also centered.

My Waze doesn't seem to be working. It doesn't follow along my route as I drive. It just stays at my home.

I'm in the USA. And yes other gps apps work.
Waze is the only one that doesn't.
I have whatever the lastest version is.
Android.

The car icon stays at my home point. Even if I am not "home" when I start the drive.

No notifications. It used to work. But the last few days, it doesn't.
