Re: don't know how to deal with ''no gps signal''?

Also, make sure you are somewhat outdoors. Sometimes when you are indoor, your phone does not pick up a gps sat signal. If you are outdoor, or in your car and are not getting GPS signal, then you have another problem...

Sometimes if you get that message when the GPS is already on, turning it off and back on will occasionally help.

Go to your mobilephone option menu and see if you have the GPS on, then go to waze and check if you have singal
it can take as long to 5min to get the GPS, also do that outside.

It is a Waze issue, the latest version has a problem. Try a previous one. This subject is on a previous threat.

Re: "No GPS Reception" Error - Can't Report or Update Prices

Are you still able to search for gas stations and see/compare prices around you?

I've heard that some people were having trouble with this feature on their phones recently. If you're also affected this might be why you can't report prices.


Vince, cleared Waze cache on the phone App, no difference on the commute home.

Just searched local gas stations and I could see/compare prices, showing the last time the gas prices were updated, 3 days ago, when the problem first started. Hm, maybe its just a bug that is taking a few days to be rectified. Just odd that everything else with the app works.
