Hi,

We isolated this issue and a fix will be uploaded to the server in the coming days.
In order to see these road on highest zoom level, you will need to refresh to maps first.

Thanks,

This does need to be acknowledged. It used to be "just fine" :grin:, but now most roads disappear quickly when you zoom out. You don't even need to get close to the most zoomed out level. Did they just stop building tiles in some levels? What is even more confusing is that some stretches of some freeways are still there even in most zoomed out level.

Welcome to Hyperbole Tuesday!

It's ridiculous to say that Waze is "totally ruined" because when you zoom out past the normal autozoom levels that Waze becomes unusable, which is what "ruined" suggests. It still works just fine.


Welcome to Selfish Wednesday, where people are only allowed to use the app in exactly the same way as you are using it!

I use Waze (or used to) in order to check for traffic problems along the route I travel, at a distance. That's all I use(d) it for (apart from reporting problems where I am to be a helpful member of the community). Now I can't do that - therefore, for me, it is totally ruined. I'm glad it's still doing what you need it to do, but it doesn't work 'just fine' I'm afraid.

Another week gone, nothing fixed, no word about whether it's even going to be fixed, a great app still totally ruined.

Do you even care?

Total muppets.

Can someone from Waze please respond here and let us know if this problem is being worked on, or that they are even aware of it.

I've just sat in traffic for an extra hour because I wasn't able to tell that the alert that appeared in the middle of nowhere on my map was actually on the road I was heading towards, and which I could have avoided if I'd realised.

As it is, Waze has gone from being the most important app on my phone to being completely useless. What is the point in a traffic app that is only able to warn you about traffic jams a mile from your location, when by then it's almost always too late to do anything about it.

PLEASE - let us know what is going on.

I'm going to add my voice to this chorus. Zoomed way out, I can see sea/lake/levee landmarks, and river/stream landmarks, as well as the city blobs, but all roads are invisible.

Are the devs aware of this issue?

Exactly the same for me on my Galaxy S2. Zooming out past a certain point makes all of the roads disappear when previously you would always see main motorways. Place names, icons and traffic speed indicators are still there though.

Very annoying - I'm almost always zoomed out so I can see problems far away in advance (i.e. before I get there so I can re-route if needed) which is now almost impossible without roads to guide you.

Hope this gets fixed ASAP.
