Confirmed in the world server too. Just today, and I think there was an update today. However, traffic patterns and paved roads do not disappear.

Yes the problem you describe sounds exactly like what I'm experiencing.

I have noted (and added to my "list") that the current client version makes even freeways disappear at at certain level of zoom out which previous versions did not. I used to be able to zoom out an then pan across the country to zoom in on a location I wanted to see how was rendered in the app. At that zoomed out level, it was easy to see the form of the country by the freeway system. Now, I have to stay zoomed in much more and it takes a lot more effort to do this.

Waze needs to overhaul and make consistent all the zoom/auto-zoom/manual zoom/declutter settings so the app behaves as we'd expect.

Try this:

Zoom out to where the road disappear.
Menu -> Settings -> Advanced -> Data Transfer -> Refresh map of my area

I suggest doing it while connected to wifi.

This was fixed a long time ago. Please try to refresh maps in advanced settings. Here's my view just a moment ago of the LA area.

Why is seeing the traffic a must?

With today's NA map update, the persistence of road visibility is much better. Minor highways disappear at zoom 8, major at 10 and freeways at 12. This is significantly better than before. I feel freeways should stick around for a couple more zoom levels out as at that level you get an idea of a good part of several US states at the same time.

After todays' mapdate things are much worse. Look at these two images, where the 2nd image is pinched just a bit more than the 1st:

Size of the area in view is maybe 40km wide, 30km high.

Major highways disappear when zoomed out

Postby e92mech » Sat Dec 08, 2012 4:43 pm

I am running the latest version of Waze on an iphone5. The issue is that recently all roads-including major highways-disappear when zoomed out to a certain degree. This issue is vehicle speed-independent, and happens even if I pinch zoom out when standing still.

The consequence is that I cannot zoom out enough to see major traffic patterns in my area before I start driving, because all the highways disappear. Furthermore, Waze becomes useless to scout possible routes on long road trips because when zoomed out to a state or city level even highways are gone, making it extremely difficult to pan and orient the map due to a complete lack of reference points.

I've tried re-downloading tiles, reinstalling the app, disabling auto-zoom and nothing has worked. Suggestions?

Interestingly, I only see this behavior on my iPhone, while on my ipad3 I can zoom out to my heart's content and the roads never disappear.

Tnx,
