All of a sudden when I try to use waze it can't find a GPS signal.
All my other GPS apps works fine (Google maps, runkeepe etc).
When I restart the phone and open waze again it finds the location and after a few seconds the signal is lost and after that it won't get any signal again.
It happened all of a sudden!
The GPS is on and on high accuracy,
I tried to reinstall the app,
I clear cached data.
wipe cache
Nothing works.

I was able to fix this by always launching Waze from the "GPS Locker" app. You can get the app from the Play Store.

Ok so I tried everything and still no GPS connection to Waze. Started yesterday out of no where (didn't update anything) and now I can't use Waze at all. Google Maps works fine, gps tested fine , only Waze is not working.

Any ideas?

Same here, works briefly after I restart my phone. I also think it has something to do with the update I did.

Any solution?

Same issue here. Waze is working fine on the smartphone itsef (but only if I enable advanced Battery optimization). But through Android Auto the GPS is not taking position (only briefly after rebooting phone)....
Google maps though is working just fine!

OK on mine but I am using the One+ Android 9 beta and also the latest Waze Beta on my 6. Used it from Somerset to London today OK.
Continues to be OK
