    - OP6 has been updated from version OS 5.1.11 via local update to Android Pie (180915)
    - Device rebooted in recovery mode to wipe cache
    - App cache from Android Auto and Waze have been cleared.
    - Android Auto (september version) and Waze have been uninstalled and reïnstalled
    - When in Android Auto navigating in Waze, the GPS signal seems to be off intermittently. It tells me that I'm off road or to go the nearest road, while I'm driving on the highway in open area.

    =>> I didn't have the problem when using Waze on the phone (without Android Auto)
    =>> Problem has been solved by uninstalling Android Auto September version and Reinstalling Android Auto August version via APKMirror

    Same problem here... Phone seems to put GPS to sleep when waze is running through Android auto... Will only work if I have Google Maps and Waze running...
