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'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 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 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.

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

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
