I have not the issue "GPS system not activated - giving approximate location" on my WP lumia 635/OS8.1
Is this permanent?
Is GPS working fine with google map or here drive?


No, it is not permanent. Just checked again, I think it was just a question of finding the signal...

Pretty sad that we cannot see other wazers now. Do you know if people can see our infos and/or our waze icon?

I am having trouble with the GPS system on my Lumia 830. It gives me a message like "GPS system not activated - giving approximate location" or some thing like that, even with my localization activated. The wazers do not appear in my map, but the information of traffic jams and other infos appear normally. Can anyone give me some tips on how to proceed?

Strange, because with my WP version, this is working fine.
You have to press "enter" once you typed your address (or words from the address).

Hi, i am using waze on my lumia 640 with win 10 for a few weeks now, before i used waze on an android phone for a few years. On the wp, waze functions ok for me.
I have one issue that when you type adresses you get no list with possible adresses. In the android version you do. I read that there is no support anymore for the wp version of waze and i think that is a shame. i hope this will change and it will be updated again.

no problem for me today with this feature. It works as usual with WP8.1.
are you sure you are connected to the network/server?

Waze no longer offers me alternate routes or times of arrival, reporting "Uh-oh! Failed to communicate with routing server". I think this started following a WP10 update last week and I know many WP10 users have had various broken app problems since the update. So is this just me or are others affected?

I also still use the old Version and on my Lumia Smartphone and think W10 mobile should not be written off as a Platform. I'd even invest some bucks because Waze is the best Combination of Navigation and Warnings in one App I've encontered yet.

I too wish they would update waze for windows phone os. Unfortunately at this point it may need a complete rewrite to be a universal app. This raises the effort needed and lowers the chances of them doing anything. The new wave of lte enabled windows devices may be an attractive target but may still be not enough to make the effort worthwhile for them.
