It must be because you have auto-brightness enabled and sometimes when you move your phone in the car, the light quantity that activates the sensor will change and hence the dimming of the screen.

Sounds like the common issue of reports causing the screen to dim and it doesn't return. It's a known issue.

The forum definitely supports adding attachments. But there's been dozens of posts about it with screenshots, so it's not necessary.

I am updating in this thread as it was the first to report the screen dimming/going black issue on iOS.

According to Waze, this issue has been resolved with a server-side fix. No sure what they did, or if they just "turned something off" so the app won't try to do the pop-up spotlight or what. No details have been provided.

This is happening on my iPhone as well. It started when I updated to latest version and when I am driving without navigation.

Hi. Apple iPhone 6+ running latest software. Two issues;
* screen dims/goes to black after three mins
* voice commands do not Lincoln with my Senna SM5 Bluetooth device on my helmet. I do occasionally get the 'WARNING' messages and today - after 75 miles of silence - it gave me directions when I was on a call to someone. Senna updated as is iphone.

Frustrating. Frustrating. Frustrating

I get this behavior. I submitted screen caps and logs yesterday, right after it occured, and according to support, they (the devs) are looking at it.
