Waze has me stationary and in the wrong town

Postby KmGoldie » Mon Jan 21, 2013 12:18 am

Since late yesterday, Waze has me parked in a neighborhood several miles away. The weather here has been clear as I drove about 60 miles logged in to Waze this afternoon. There is a road closure along the route I would normally have taken, and would have liked to have been able to find the back way to where I needed to go.

My phone has been rebooted, I'm logged in to Waze, and I have turned Waze and my GPS, on and off several times to no avail.

Is there a fix?

I have not heard of that, you could try and delete and reinstall. Wish I was more help but I have had some goofy things happen and reinstall always seems to fix them.

Are you on Andriod or iOS? Have you tried another map application like Google or the dreaded iOS maps to see if they can give your correct location?
