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.

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

I'm experiencing the "fade to black" map issue described by others in this group.
Control icons at bottom left and right display as do the functions provided by the buttons.
The fix does not seem to have worked.
iPhone 5s / iOS 7.0.4 / Waze 3.7.7.0

I have this bug too...I ended up uninstalling waze and using apple maps...nothing is more annoying than a nav app that doesn't show you a map.

I have the same problem on my 4S...

As a temporary fix, I kill off the app [iOS 7+...double click the home key; swipe waze up] and relaunch.

I repeat as often as is needed

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 have not seen this problem on my phone in months now. iOS 6.x on iPhone 4. Running Beta App if I recall though.

I've started experiencing the dimming issue in the last couple weeks.
