This is late, but thank you, waze developers, for addressing this. No longer will Waze clobber my sense of direction by spinning the map on me.

One more quibble- since I log in, would it be so hard for you to save my settings? That way, when I get a new device, it could lock north and turn down the volume for me when I log in, and I wouldn't have to find where in the settings the lock-north mode is yet again

(For the rest of you, and for my future self, let me note here that (a) 2-D mode is under Display, and (b) Lock-North mode is under Advanced)

North-up lock appears to be working as expected in the latest beta version. I've done a few trips with it and I think you'll like the new ability. (I dislike the UI of having the control in Settings though.)

Single tap to orientate north up for say 5 seconds, display a clock over the compass. Double tap to fix north up, display a padlock over the compass.

That UI would make it unambiguous. 8-)

Unsure of the definition of "temporary." Not sure trinary is a great idea.... Ambiguous.

They claim to have, and I've seen it, but haven't gotten to testing it specifically. I've found too many other bugs.

Implementation is poor, IMO, as they added a new Setting, instead of using the existing on-screen button. I don't understand that and have made my disappointment known to the developers. The way they did it is illogical.

But it's a start. Moving it to be toggled by the compass icon can presumably be done easily enough once it's confirmed to be working. Preferably a tri-state toggle [Off, Temporary, On].

Any progress on this? I know it's only been a little over one and a half year, but some sort of official response would be nice.

(I personally suspect Waze fired all their actual developers in 2011 and can't add any features.)
