I've had something similar, too; however, when mine has occurred it is when I'm mounting it the holder and my hand cover the camera eye thus simulating a 'wave' to ask me what I want to do, but then the screen goes very dark. I have to actually lock the phone and unlock and that seems to clear it. This only occurs with Waze, never during any other app. Kinda strange. Hasn't happened any other way as previously described by others.

That happens to me too on my IPhone. Very annoying, when will they fix it?

Similar behavior here, the screen darkens when I receive a popup message (a reply on an accident report that is very old and still on the map). I tap on the map, the popup is gone, the screen is dark and it does not respond to touch.

Very annoying because there are many accidents left not the map, one from yesterday was reported 208 hours ago :(.

iPhone 5s, iOS 7.1

I have not seen this problem on my phone in months now. iOS 6.x on iPhone 4. Running Beta App if I recall though.

Never seen this happen.

Although I've never had a 'popup' other than "Friends Driving" but it doesn't impact the performance of the app.

I have the same problem on my 4S...

As a temporary fix, I kill off the app [iOS 7+...double click the home key; swipe waze up] and relaunch.

I repeat as often as is needed

First important information:
What are we talking about? iOS? Android?
Second:
Remain the "menu" and "report" button highlighted too?
