Why don't you use that same search within the Waze app?

I use the Yelp app to look for places to go for food and such, and once I find somewhere that's worth going, I press "Find Directions" to open Waze to go there.

So for example, I search for "Del Taco," go inside the Yelp page for its nearest location, and press "Find Direction." This opens the Waze app, and then the Waze app I guess just stops loading after opening, which gives me the blue screen.

I've tried zooming in/out, everything. It's not an ocean, just maps that fail to load. I have to turn off Waze, open Waze manually (not via Yelp) to get it to load the maps again.

Anyone who's using Android Yelp + Waze should try this and report back to see if they're experiencing the same problem.

Well, first off Yelp is one of the internal providers to Waze, so you can search inside Waze and get Yelp results (you just have to select the correct tab).

It almost looks like your method is passing incorrect information to Waze an you are ending up in the middle of an ocean or something. Have you tried to zoom out (a lot) from where Waze puts that pin?

Are you using a Yelp App or the Yelp website?

What were you searching for (if you don't want to reveal it in the forum, feel free to PM it to me).

I've moved this to Board index ‹ Client ‹ Search for now, but if this gets more complicated it can be moved to Board index ‹ General ‹ Bugs later.

Have you tried starting Waze from a newly created shortcut?

If you find a way to do it, could someone check photo spots on Google Now? Navigating to them is the same. Definitely a Waze issue.

This is indeed a bug as above, the lat and long are swapped. Perlin was made aware but it didn't go any further. I too have seen this problem.
