Nope, map looks fine. Hope that it is not the client? Anything I can do when it happens again?

Next time please provide screenshots that illustrates the problem. Thanks.

During the first part of my commute, while I was still in my neighborhood, the app told me "Hazard Reported Ahead" -- every time I stopped at a stop sign. Strangely, this behavior went away when I got on a freeway.

It also got "stuck" at the "recalculating" (Waze icons chasing each other) popup. After a minute, I hit the Back button, and my route was correctly calculated.

"Feature" that has been in the app from the start that is really annoying: the app tries to route me off the freeway, onto a frontage road, and then right back onto the freeway. That's not bad by itself, of course. But when the freeway clears up, Waze can't figure out that I deviated from the suggested course. I think it interprets the input as "vehicle moving 70mph along exits and frontage road", so of course it keeps routing other Wazers down the frontage road! I wish there was a one-touch feature to tell Waze "I'm not where you think I am, recalculate my position".

When i except the location of when I am picking someone up I loose the menu button and never get a trail to follow or sometimes directions. This screenshot at least shows 2 of the 3 problems.

Not sure what happened, but when I drove to home, I saw the finish flag on the correct location, but Waze was telling me to drive to a location a 100 meter to the south. Even when I was in the segment before my home, it was telling to to that wrong location. I'll check the maps, but as far as I know there was no INTL map update this weekend? Or was it.

Still some problems with the pick up feature. It does work, but the time between checks with the server is too long. It should be a minute at the longest. Especially when picking up people nearby for work.
Either that, or it doesn't work and it was just by chance that playing with the UI made waze eventually dial home and check these push messages for a pickup update...

Also, if a route is set, and then you receive the confirmed pickup request, the final destination is the pickup, at which point, navigation stops. Waze should add it as a stop. You shouldn't have to pick up and set the route again.
