Not sure it is necessary as a workaround but I always mark read first then delete. I currently do not have a push badge on my Waze icon and that matches what I see in the app.

Open a UR from livemap then go into the editor. When you get the push, try my process to see if it clears things up. I have no idea if it will help, but it can't hurt I don't think...... ;)

The little 5 appeared on mine a few weeks ago without ever having received a message. Or maybe I did, but was unable to view them. I haven't gotten a message in a while, which is strange because I used to get the beep beeps a lot.

That could be what it is...If I pull down the little iOS "window shade", I see that I've gotten a notification every 7 days. However, the number didn't increase this week, so I don't think that's it.

This is still a problem for me ever since I had to replace my iPhone under warranty.

The "4" badge is always there with nothing in the Inbox. I finally just turned-off badges for the app in Notifications, since it's apparently not going to get fixed any time soon.

The app logo still shows the little numeral "4" even after I have cleared all those notifications. There's nothing in my inbox.

Thanks for the ideas. Think I may just turn the notifications off. I'm obsessive enough that I get the messages, one way or another, anyway.

I've gotten 4 "notifications" for the weekly ranking, but nothing ever showed in my inbox. I eventually went into the general setting and turned off the "Badge App Icon" notification so they at least don't show up there.
I'd be ranked higher if I drove more than 5 miles to work. :-(
But I only have to drive 5 miles to work. :-)

I was up to 8 notifications (all for weekly "top" notifications) then one day it dropped to 2. Since then I've gotten 2 more notifications (again nothing in my inbox), so I'm now at 4. So it does seem that there is some "timeout" with them.
