This may be related to system resources. Waze is much improved for me as long as I restart the phone every day after applying updates. Background processes are the usual Android, plus antivirus, plus Whatsapp. Free RAM after restart is approx 120MB.
THIS! I restart the phone every day now. Otherwise after some waze launches it keeps loosing GPS all the time. After restart all is ok. For a day. However I did not see such behavior with other apps. So I believe waze is breaking something in gps settings for some time.
You can try running free apps like "Fast Reboot" to free resources and GPS keep alive app or something like Tasker. My Tasker is setup so every time I run apps like Waze, Google maps and other GPS location service is required automatically enables GPS.
Although this update has made the Waze smooth on my three year old phone. For some reason it started to bog down on the first version but it's been very smooth since.
