My screen goes black, too, on my iPhone when I've opened it and simply rotate the phone from Portrait to Landscape. That seems to be the only time it does it for me...but it always comes back, then all is good. No issues after that little 'black out'.

I've had something similar, too; however, when mine has occurred it is when I'm mounting it the holder and my hand cover the camera eye thus simulating a 'wave' to ask me what I want to do, but then the screen goes very dark. I have to actually lock the phone and unlock and that seems to clear it. This only occurs with Waze, never during any other app. Kinda strange. Hasn't happened any other way as previously described by others.

I do not see any effect. Today the bug was there as usual.

I wonder if the people having this problem experience it when they are stopped for a short time (red light, stop sign, ext...). From what I see in these screen shots, it looks like it is happening when the speed has gone to 0. I know I used to have a problem with in-app ads, and other area alerts not populating correctly which would give me that grey screen. Haven't seen in a while though.

I've have the same problem - The screen goes black just after a report pops up. Waze is unusable afterwards. I depend on it every day. iPhone 5, IOS 6

That happens to me too on my IPhone. Very annoying, when will they fix it?

It's still an issue on the new (3.8.1) version. Upgraded last night an I now get this problem when I had not experienced it before.
The prevent auto lock is on and the "background app refresh" setting is set as well.
I'm running iOS 7.0.4 on a iPhone 4.

2 days ago after driving for 5 hours we tried to post a car on the side of the road and hit the camera button by mistake. Shortly after that the screen went black. When I restarted Waze the map poped up where we were, but then, about 15 seconds after it went black. I could not get the map to stay on. Then while returning home yesterday the app performed well for 6 hours of driving. Today I tried to post something and again hit the Camera button in error and Waze went into the black screen mode. Most of the posts in this topic seem to come from over a year ago. Is this a recurring issue.
I have an I-Phone 5 running ver. 7.12.

Help, I really enjoy this app.

I updated my iPhone to IOS 8.0.2 and it is going blank for no reason. It didn't use to do this on IOS 7. It also does it when I rotate my iPhone from Portrait to Landscape position. Got a fix yet?

Similar behavior here, the screen darkens when I receive a popup message (a reply on an accident report that is very old and still on the map). I tap on the map, the popup is gone, the screen is dark and it does not respond to touch.

Very annoying because there are many accidents left not the map, one from yesterday was reported 208 hours ago :(.

iPhone 5s, iOS 7.1
