Likewise, when I saw the update yesterday I thought 'Oh good they fixed it and is now launching new version' but the update made no difference.

My app has been buggy for 2 weeks now. It's only recording 20% of my drives and my score board hasn't been updating properly since July 18th. Now I can't see scoreboard at all.

Getting the same scoreboard issue since the upgrade. Using an iPhone 5.

Oops! Something went wrong... Sorry, there is a problem viewing this page. Please try again later.

The same happens on Android. Is this a server issue or app issue? Please fix!

After reporting a Gas Station Price, it's as if the 'Prevent Auto-Lock' feature gets turned off--my screen goes dark after a minute. However, if I toggle the 'Prevent Auto-Lock' off and on again after reporting a Gas Station Price it appears to work correctly. I just noticed this after upgrading to iOS 8.


As posted in the "Screen Locking in iOS8" thread https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=108752, there is currently no known workaround for iOS8 screen lock as of iOS-8.0.0 - Gas Station Price is unrelated to the issue.

Screen unlock while driving in traffic might be dangerous.

Do you have negative points also in at waze.com\myaccount or only at your cell phone?
Try to uninstall the app reboot phone, install it again.

Cheers

Thanks, so the setting must have changed if it was there to begin with previously as I don't recall setting it before.

Getting the same thing on my 4s running 6.1.3 iOS, the lock screen comes on the phone like the app is not running, have to swipe to unlock.

It seems that I'm having a different problem altogether. Ever since the last update a few days ago, every time I launch the app, it forgets who I am. I have to go through the rigmarole of signing in, adding my phone number, entering a verification code, confirming my name, photo and wazer name. Quite the pain! However, it seems that I'm the only one with the issue. Thoughts?

Just giving this a +1 as well.

App goes to sleep on me now. :(

I hadn't used Waze in a while so this was a real annoyance as I was stuck with tapping the screen constantly while driving as there was nowhere to stop and fiddle around in the settings to prevent it. It's not a setting that should be altered during an update.

A screen off but sound on normal for a low energy mode would be useful. If it cut the screen but kept the sound on normal volume that would have been fine but it cut the sound so you could hardly hear it. I'm sure a previous version did do this.

I don't know whether this happened before IOS8 but now with IOS8 there is no way to alter 'background app updating' with waze. Is this a change so it can't be turned off or that the app cannot ever be updated in the background? Waze is missing out of the list of apps that can have this toggled on or off.

When I start out from home the phone still sees my WiFi and is able to calculate the route, but once I'm half a block away it seems clueless. Can't report events (searching for network - but obviously not very hard, since the top of the phone screen reports five bars of LTE). Can't search for new routes. Basically unusable.

I also run into the problem that the "prevent screen lock" doesn't.

So - what's up?

Could it be linking to your home WIFI when you are at home and never using the Cell Phone connection at all?
