Waze lags intermittently 0 Recommended Answers 18 Replies 54 Upvotes

Whenever I am using Waze with Android Auto, it lags during navigation. It usually happens during the first few minutes of my trip. Example: My drive to work is 45 minutes - it takes anywhere from 7-10 minutes to catch up. My icon keeps freezing as if it's losing navigation, but after a while it works fine. I've already completely uninstalled Android Auto and Waze, replaced my SIM card, run a factory reset on my phone and reinstalled everything to no avail. Any ideas?

I have had the same problem for several weeks. In my situation it never improves. It just acts as though GPS is deactivated. Google Maps works perfect. Wish they would update.

I report the same issue of lading with Waze while Google maps works perfectly.
Above some of the noted solutions I also tried clearing the cache in Waze with no positive effect.
Hoping for a solution soon as I much prefer Waze over Google maps.

Same issue with my Galaxy S8. Waze lags, google maps is fine. Same issue in my 2019 Ram 1500 and had the same issue in a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox rental.

Found the previous version of android auto. Uninstalled current app and installed previous and all is good. Make sure you turn off auto updates on your apps or you'll end up with the same issue.

Same here, extremely frustrating  when you depend on it while driving. Needs to be fixed big time

Same thing on my side. GM works fine while Waze keeps lagging and turning on and off now and then. I wrote to support@waze.com. No answer just yet.
really frustrating. Using Galaxy S8 on Mazda CX-3 2019

I actually tried what John Stanard recommended. I still have the same issues. At first, it seemed to work better, but afetr just a few minutes, it started lagging again. :(
I hope they will fix it soon. I can't drive without Waze

I am having the same issue. It seems that Android Auto is auto updating even though I didn't have auto updates enabled in Google Play settings. I've just changed that setting back to no auto updates and reinstalled the version in my previous post.
