This is a very frustrating problem. I was on I-57 for a few hundred miles yesterday and it kept trying to recalucate my route and there were gaps in the road. Please, I'd rather have good navigation over good social stuff. Please fix.

I submitted a ticket through the support page, but the response I received was less than desirable. Basically making it sound like there was not a problem and shot it down.

Yeah the last time I reported it they gave me some terrible canned response. Sometimes the support is awful, but that's Waze.

Right, but adding a counterpoint.

I just re-read this thread from the start to see if I missed anything or had anything else to add. Well both are true. Although I said I hadn't seen this before, I actually HAVE. When I first read and replied I took it as the navigation function stopped and not that literally that the line ended.

This issue comes up every "now and then" and seems to be related to transitions between map tiles. Just recently I drove from Knoxville TN to Boston MA and through most of VA and PA I would get the disappearing line and then proceed to highlighted route error. For me it seemed to be every time I got close to and drove through a new city polygon (could have just been a coincidence).

So just for a few hours that one day I had the problem. The rest of the week through the return trip was fine except for maybe 3 or 4 times total, each of which was very short.

In the end I don't think it has anything to do with the length of your trip other than the longer you are driving the more likely you are to find a problem.

Right, but other people *are* having this problem.

It's been doing it to me too. Then you get "proceed to highlighted route".

I'm starting to wonder if it's just my phone.

I frequently use Waze for multi-hour trips and only rarely have this issue -- and when I do it always seems connected with poor cell phone service.
